You ever notice how the DCEU Superman and Batman represent everything both Steve AND Tony are opposed to in Civil War?
Steve is opposed to the accords because they ‘shift the blame‘ and remove freedom of choice from the Avengers. Superman’s very first action in BvS is to kill someone, and when confronted about it by his girlfriend, he says ‘I don’t care.’ And when she brings up the other people who died, he says ‘I didn’t kill those men‘.
He shifts the blame.
Even his dad hallucination is telling him to just not care if his actions bring harm to others. And everyone’s fear of Batman is because he seems to have more say in the justice system than the system itself. They are afraid because they feel he takes away their freedom of choice.
Meanwhile, Tony is for the Accords because he feels that without proper regulation and oversight, he and the rest of the Avengers are ‘no better than the bad guys’. Both Superman and Batman have no regulation, self imposed or otherwise. Batman murders several people throughout the film, some indirectly, some very directly. Yet no one calls him out on it. Not Alfred, not Clark, no one. And Superman starts the movie getting involved in a hostage situation and destroys a government drone, thus disrupting a government operation. The film does somewhat address this when Senator Finch says ‘I’m not saying he shouldn’t act. I’m saying he shouldn’t act unilaterally.‘ But only she brings this up, it’s only about Superman and Superman himself doesn’t acknowledge it beyond an angry scowl.
Did the writers of Civil War get a peak at the BvS script and go ‘OK, let’s make our heroes oppose everything these two stand for?‘ Or did the BvS writers miss the mark so badly that Civil War made a critique on the problematic elements of it’s title characters by chance?!
