The title of the film alone makes it clear that Batman and Superman are not exactly going to be BFFs in "Dawn of Justice," but it seems that their problems are far more than a little rivalry.

In a new clip from the film, Superman (Henry Cavill) was seen ripping off Batman's (Ben Affleck) mask. CBS News noted that this is the first footage of Affleck sans his mask in the film.

The Hollywood Reporter seems to think that there's something wrong with an angry Superman unmasking his opponent, considering that what makes Clark Kent likeable is his compassion toward humanity, which didn't show through the clip. Superman traditionally stands for "truth, justice, and the American Way," and he was pretty good at embodying those traits, so what's with the kneeling in his presence?

That being said, something is terribly wrong, at least based on what we do know so far about the character from previous movies and trailers.

One explanation is that the Superman in the clip is being controlled by Luthor, and he's actually a villain at that point. Or it could be a clone, one of their nemeses ruining Superman's reputation so that he'll alienate people who used to love him. Whatever the reason is, more details will surface when the next trailer is released on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Furious Superman is not the only thing wrong with the teaser. As The Atlantic pointed out, Batman does not usually wear a coat when he's out and about doing superhero business, but in his capture, he seems to be donning a trench, which is very Humphrey Bogart of him. It doesn't make sense why he's wearing a coat instead of his cape -- he's probably trying to look as inconspicuous as possible, or maybe director Zack Snyder is looking for a spin to make him look less of a cartoon (although that does not explain why they kept Superman's costume). But either way, his trench still makes more sense that the other famous Batman costume (we're looking at you, George Clooney).

Hopefully, fans will be able to find answers in the next trailer, which will air on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Wednesday.

"Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Diane Lane, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Michael Shannon, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons and Holly Hunter. The film will premiere in theaters on March 25, 2016.
