DC Universe Online
is entering a crowded field, but it's aiming to enter said field with both guns firing. The cinematic trailer alone is the sort of thing to make any long-time DC fan happy, showing a large-scale battle between heroes and villains in the vein of the best comic crossovers. In the new director's cut variant, however, Jim Lee
and Tim Miller
sit down to examine and discuss the trailer, from the large-scale goals of the video to the easter eggs that tie everything together.
It's clear from watching the trailer and the commentary that the people involved adore the work they're doing and the source material, with everything from an homage to Kingdom Come
to Batman's role mirroring the end of The Dark Knight Returns
. Click past the break to see the full trailer with commentary, which is certain to point out pieces that you missed. If, on the other hand, you haven't seen the original DC Universe Online
trailer, it's available on the official site
