It does not. Ironically, some forget that many of the superhero genre's most celebrated issues were dark, where heroes were truly challenged, and there's no room for endless, mood-killing quips (e.g., so much of the MCU).

Here's the think about darkness... you have to see a bit of the light, so you know what the heroes are fighting for... or at the end, to show they triumphed. Perhaps that's in there, but I agree that trailer is just morbid. My comic book store guy is super excited about it, and was telling me how great it all looked, but all I see is darkness.
^ Well, some of the celebrated arcs in comics history have been incredibly dark (e.g. ASM #121-122, Dark Phoenix arc, A Death in the Family, COIE, many an early 70s Batman and Green Lantern, etc.). Like real life, heroes fighting the good fight does not always guarantee a bright spot or even a semi-happy ending. Part of the problem with comics of old is that conflicts do not feel like conflicts when you know how it will always end up--no consequences.
I'll probably sign up for the shortest possible interval to watch it and a few movies for a month. I don't have super high hopes for enjoying it as a Justice League movie, but the situation itself is fascinating. It's not often we get to see an almost entirely different version of the same movie.
