BvS's Trailer Debuting in IMAX on April 20th! Posted by: Bill "Jett" Ramey (Follow @BATMANONFILM)

UPDATE:VARIETY.COM is now confirming that the first full-length trailer for BATMAN v SUPERMAN will be debuted by IMAX on Monday, April 20th. The trade confirms that the studio had been planning on releasing it along with MAD MAX: FURY ROAD on May 15th, but they apparently have changed their mind. Honestly, I think it's a pretty cool and unique way of releasing a trailer. I have an IMAX theater two miles from my house, so if it's screening there, I will definitely be in attendence! Also, I wouldn't doubt that it'll be posted online Monday evening as well. The orignal story is below the BvS logo...
So I wondered, could the billing block - which is the film's credits - be the thing that my source told me would be dropping?
I doubt it.
Now comes a report from Latino-Review.com's "El Mayimbe" that a sneak peek of the trailer will be unveiled via Zack Snyder's twitter account this Thursday (April 16th) at 9AM. Futhermore, there will be instructions to see the full-teaser trailer at a theater on Monday, Additionally, the trailer will be attached to Marvel's THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON which hits theaters May 1st.
Maybe THIS is what was being dropped via social media as more source said. He didn't know exactly what was being revealed, but simply assumed it was the one sheet as he believed that the trailer would be attached to Warner's MAD MAX: FURY ROAD on May 15th (which was officially reported by VARIETY.COM on April 1st).
Frankly, I can't say this is either true or BS, sorry about that. I have reached out to Warner Bros. for a confirmation or denial, but I'm sure all I'll get is the "we have no comment on rumors" response. Look, Emberto is well-connected and has snagged some major scoops over the years, so this certainly could be happening. But he's been wrong before as well (as I have too, to be honest). I'd say take this with a grain of salt and we'll see if something goes down tomorrow.
