The short footage, which was uploaded to YouTube, seems to be shot by a camera phone and has Portuguese subtitles on screen.

The trailer begins with a voiceover asking: “Is it really surprising that the most powerful man in the world should be a figure of controversy?”

As the footage rolls on, numerous voices can be heard saying: “We as a population on this planet have been looking for a savior” and “maybe he’s just a guy trying to do the right thing.”

Fans on the Internet went wild, with both applause and criticism.

The eagerly anticipated footage was set to premiere in Imax theaters in the U.S. on Monday.

The flick is set to be released on March 25, 2016 and stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman and Amy Adams.

The movie was directed by Zack Snyder who released a short excerpt of the trailer on Twitter on Wednesday.
