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
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

“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’ Final Trailer: The Dark Knight Isn’t Afraid Of The Man Of Steel

Batman v Superman Header

Warner Bros. has released one final trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice. There is a little over a month left before the film hits theaters, and the studio is going to work the promotion machine until it breaks. But with much of the trailers focusing on Superman (Henry Cavill) or the battle between the two iconic title heroes, this latest trailer shines a Bat signal, as it focuses on Batman (Ben Affleck), his age, and how he perceives Superman has a threat. As he has hinted before, Superman has the kind of power to destroy humanity. In fact, he doesn’t want to take any chances with a god-like hero whose powers go unchecked. As The Dark Knight so adamantly put it, “If we believe there is even a 1% chance that he is our enemy, we have to take it as an absolute certainty.”

Check out the final trailer for BvS here below.

Almost two weeks ago, director Zack Snyder tweeted out two character posters for a special Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice IMAX event. They featured both the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight’s faces obscured by each other’s character logos with the year 2016 right dead in the center.

A variant of the Batman character poster has been released that gives us our first clear look at Ben Affleck decked out in the classic cape and cowl of Gotham’s nocturnal vigilante. You can check it out here below.

Last week, Warner Bros. launched a major marketing campaign for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Director Zack Snyder had announced that a 15-minute IMAX event will be held in theaters across the nation in conjunction with the release of the film’s first trailer. While the trailer leak was unexpected, the studio continues to move forward with their plans to show 15 minutes of footage. In anticipation for this, we are getting two new, I guess you would call them, character posters. Only thing is, each poster has been defaced with the markings of the other title heroe. So if you see a Batman poster, you’ll see that it has been defaced with the Superman emblem, and vice-versa. And to get these posters, you’ll have to attend the event tonight. Hit the jump to check them out.

Principal photography for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice may be over, but the film is still scheduled for a March 2016 release. With a little over 11 months left until the world sees the next chapter of DC’s cinematic universe, WB has a lot of time to promote the film. We haven’t even actually seen a true teaser trailer yet. While the anticipation is killing some, WB is starting to rollout new images of some of the newer characters being introduced to the comic film franchise.

We’ve already seen the first images for Batman and Wonder Woman last year, and NOW we are getting our first look at Jesse Eisenberg as the film’s villain, Lex Luthor. Hit the jump for more.
