BVS: A very “serious movie” dealing with “serious subject matters and themes” that lacks any “humor” or “Fun.” “Too dark” “I no understand” “Y NO DanCe off or talking racoons?!” - Rotten Tomato “Critics”

Bonus:

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) dir. Zack Snyder

  • Clark Kent in Man of Steel:*holds back from using his powers against human bullies because he knows he could hurt them very badly*
  • Clark Kent in Man of Steel:*wanders the world trying to keep a low profile and helping people whenever he can*
  • Clark Kent in Man of Steel:*practically glows when Lois Lane smiles at him*
  • Clark Kent in Dawn of Justice:*buys his girlfriend flowers and cooks for her*
  • Clark Kent in Dawn of Justice:*does his best to continue helping people in spite of his detractors*
  • Clark Kent in Dawn of Justice:*struggles with crippling feelings of guilt and self-doubt*
  • Clark Kent in Dawn of Justice:*sacrifices himself to save a world which has rejected him*
  • Critics:DC's nascent cinematic universe has so far depicted Superman as an angry god; a violent, alien entity that needs to be kept in check.

“I began to think Batman and Superman occupy different parts of the mythic imagination. In superhero stories, Batman is Pluto, god of the underworld, and Superman is Apollo, god of the sky. That began to be really interesting to me, that their conflict is not just due to manipulation, but their very existence.” – Chris Terrio, screenwriter of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice
