    D'you will??

    Hi

    I'm new to this forum so I don't know if this is the right place to post my question. But, here it goes.

    In the trailer for the new Batman v Superman movie, Batman asks Superman:

    - Tell me, do you bleed?
    - You will.



    But it seems like he says "D'you will". So my question is if he really puts a letter D before "you" in the phrase "You will".

    Thank you.

    It's unclear to me. It sounds like "Joowill" .

    He says "you will." It's just some unintended recording/sound processing effect that makes it sound otherwise.

    He's speaking in a breathy, guttural voice, which leads him to stretch the "y" sound out. The "d" that you're hearing is an artifact of the stretched "y".

    Some of my Mexican friends do the same thing when they pronounce "you" like "Jew". In Spanish, they might pronounce "llama" like "jah-ma".

    Well, to mine he does something consonantal and dental/palatal; it‘s not a fully-fledged /d/ though - I don‘t think there‘s any other word hiding there.
