Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Director: Zack Snyder
Screenwriter: Chris Terrio, David Goyer
Cast: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Jeremy Irons, Gal Gadot
Distributor: Warner Bros. Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 151 Minutes
Release Date: March 25, 2016

When there is a film as hyped as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, you expect a fight between the two heroes that resembles an epic title card match that you paid good money to watch. So you go in, feeling excited about a fight between two of “The World’s Finest.” It will be a match for the ages. Two heroes with different ideologies on what it means to be heroes. As impressive as a movie about a fight between two iconic comic book characters sounds, this one that doesn’t live up to the hype thanks in part to sloppy editing, a poor script, and a director with an absolute disrespect for the characters.

Sure, a movie like its predecessor Man of Steel isn’t perfect, and no film is. But it can be considered the prologue to a film that will set the foundation to the DC Expanded Universe. But what took Marvel years to set up, DC is attempting to do in just two films. It’s an admirable attempt at trying to create a shared universe like their competitors did, but the moment you step foot into this world, you start to get lost in a convoluted mess.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Movie Review

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Director: Zack Snyder

Cast: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Jeremy Irons, Gal Gadot

“What have you done?”

You know those combination Pizza Hut/Taco Bell fast food places where you can get a Pepperoni Lover’s® Personal Pan Pizza and a Doritos® Cheesy Gordita Crunch with a Mountain Dew Baja Blast®? Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is kind of like that, except the pizza is a soggy, overloaded sadness pie and the Cheesy Gordita Crunch is deep-fried in sweat and dread. So, your standard Taco Bell experience I guess.

Directed by Zack Snyder (Man of Steel, Watchmen), Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is both deadly serious and aggressively silly. It’s a heavy-handed treatise on post-9/11 America written on a Quesalupa wrapper; a soliloquy on sacrificing freedoms for the illusion of security, delivered by a GameStop manager between trade-ins of LEGO Batman 3.

Don’t get me wrong: A movie about the ideological divide between Batman and Superman could be compelling, but that isn’t this movie. There are no heroes in this movie, only violent psychopaths trying to one-up each other in the “right-wing nutjob” department. This isn’t a battle of ideologies; it’s a war for bragging rights. These guys aren’t fighting for justice – they’re gunning for the highest body count.

Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice Trailer Doomsday

2016 will see two movies about two legendary heroes at odds and forced to fight each other by some outside force. It’s a bit perplexing as to why WB didn’t release the trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice during their Flash and Arrow annual crossover episode and decided to debut the trailer during Jimmy Kimmel Live, which airs on ABC, a Disney owned network, but I digress. The fact of the matter is, we are getting a new trailer for Dawn of Justice, and after a lackluster teaser, and a fairly descent Comic-Con trailer, this latest one will surely have comic book fans (yes even the Marvel ones) excited for this one.

Check out the latest trailer for the film below.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Image 03

Though we are still about five months away from the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the hype machine continues to run on all cylinders. Recently, a viral marketing campaign gave us a glimpse into the world of LexCorp. Then, a new rumor popped up hinting that Wonder Woman would take place months before the events of Batman v Superman, and that Batman has been observing Wonder Woman for some time.

In the months leading up to the film’s debut, we are likely to get even more trailers, clips, and other promotional items that will crack the DC Cinematic Universe wide open. Now a new set of images have appeared online, and Henry Cavill is talking a little bit about the highly anticipated sequel, and even a “prologue.” More on the story below.

Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor In Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice

It’s a banner week for viral marketing campaigns. Following the release of the Jaws 19 trailer to celebrate the 30 Anniversary of Back To The Future, Warner Bros. has unveiled a viral marketing campaign of their own to promote the upcoming release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Their latest push takes the form of an exclusive interview between Fortune Magazine and Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). Based on what we saw in the last trailer, Eisenberg won’t be anything like the quiet Mark Zuckerberg we saw in The Social Network, instead he looks to be more ruthless and cunning, but still having that cool-guy vibe. If anything the latest profile piece will give us some insight as to what kind of Lex Luthor we will see in the film. Check it out below.

Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice Henry Cavill Wayne Manor

In the past few weeks, director Zack Snyder confirmed rumors that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice would focus more on Batman than Superman. He explained that to help establish the Dark Knight as a character who existed long before Superman saved the Earth, we would need to “understand where Batman is with everything.” Of course with Ben Affleck signed on for a trilogy of Batman films plus other Justice League projects, Superman fans are beginning to lose hope for a sequel to Man of Steel, especially since WB doesn’t have any real plans for Superman after Justice League.

But consider the newest report a strange sign of hope. Snyder has gone on record to clarify that BvS is in actuality Man of Steel 2. More on the story here below.

‘Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ May Have More Dark Knight Than Man Of Steel

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

It was only a matter of time before these superhero films started focusing on title heroes facing off against one another instead of the generic villain. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be one of the first films to use that concept for the big screen.

Ben Affleck plays the current iteration of the Dark Knight, who is said to be “tired and weary and seasoned and been doing it for a while.” The actor recently signed on to write and direct the first of a trilogy of Batman films that doesn’t include the quasi-Man of Steel sequel – to which WB still has to figure out if Man of Steel 2 will actually be released. Following the huge success of The Dark Knight trilogy, fans are just itching to see what Affleck does in this film, and based on a rumored screening reaction, it looks like WB may want director Zack Snyder to have Batman v Superman focus more on the Dark Knight than the Man of Steel. More on the story below.

Superman Man Of Steel - Zod - Michael Shannon for sequel Batman v Superman

As far as many of the press junkets go, if you are a talent attached to a superhero film that is a part of the shared universe, chances are you are going to be asked about said superhero film. Some may answer, some play dodge, and some may not answer at all because of an NDA agreement they signed. Recently, we saw just how powerful the internet voice can be when Michael Shannon talked about having flippers for hands in Batman v Superman. So was he becoming Black Manta or something else entirely?

Well, during the press tour for 99 Homes, the actor is “setting the record straight” by admitting that he wasn’t even a part of the filming process for BvS. More on this below.

Man Of Steel Michael Shannon Zod returns in Batman v Superman

After Superman (Henry Cavill) was forced to kill General Zod (Michael Shannon) in Man of Steel, it was thought that that would be the last time we would see the Kryptonian villain. However, the recent trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice supported the previous rumors that he would make a return after Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) somehow acquires his body.

It’s still to early to tell how exactly Lex comes into the possession of Zod’s body, though it may have to do with a rich man not knowing what to do with all his money except spend it on outlandish items. But in a new interview, Shannon reveals an interesting thing about a kind of transformation that General Zod has undergone since his death. More on this story here below.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Title Card

Many of the characters of Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice have been revealed in the past few weeks. The recent trailer confirmed that Holly Hunter‘s character was a politician who heads a Senate Subcommittee holding Superman responsible for his actions in Man of Steel.

However, Scoot McNairy‘s involvement is still unknown. The actor was cast for a mysterious role back in 2014, and a leaked photo revealed that he was wearing a pair of green socks, indicating that there would be some sort of CGI involved. Some believed that he would be playing The Flash, a belief that was quickly dispelled when Ezra Miller was confirmed for the role. But now a new rumor has emerged that says he may be wearing those green socks for another reason. More on the rumor below.
