Batman V Superman takes itself too seriously, tries to cover too much territory, doesn’t explain anything about Wonder Woman, and like all cross-overs, has the risk of combining too many HUGE characters into too short a span of time, reducing the all important character development. This reduces us to watching just another DC smash-fest in which we’re wondering, “Who’s that woman and where did she come from and what can she do? What can this big ugly monster do? Why didn’t DARPA or Google Alphabet pull apart Superman’s Kryptonian Scout ship to discover how to do something *really* useful like… fusion energy? Why did they give the Scout ship to a guy that had just appeared a little psychotic and unbalanced at a public library function? And, when these main heroes suffer in battle, why do I feel like I’m just watching a cool Youtube special effects demonstration rather than an actual blockbuster movie? Why don’t I *care*?”
Now watch Ben Affleck’s face as he realises he’s in another shocker. So sad. So much superhero potential, so much blandness. The only good thing for me was seeing the end of “Man of Steel” through Bruce Wayne’s eyes and realising what petty little ants us human beings were in that titanic battle… how frightening Superman was. But with the lack of true character development, and their whole titanic struggle bouncing off “Why did you say Martha?”, I’m wondering if this movie will even breakeven?
