Henry Cavill Batman v Superman

We've heard the Dark Knight say "Tell me ... do you bleed?" again and again in trailers for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," but now a new clip provides context for his threatening question.

Unveiled last night on "Conan" by director Zack Snyder, the scene begins with Henry Cavill's Superman tearing open the Batmobile to reveal Ben Affleck's Batman within.

"Next time they shine your light in the sky, don't go to it," warns a grim Superman. "The Bat is dead, bury it. Consider this mercy."

So, of course, Batman responds with a bit of menace of his own.

Opening March 25, "Batman v Superman" also stars Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and Gal Gadot.
