    Ant-man and Deadpool really brought the FUN back into these films. I’m growing tired of the broody, moping superheroes about now

  • I_am_better

    Haven’t seen the longest director’s cut of Watchmen, just the animation-free DC. Love that.

  • I_am_better
  • Exactly! We need to get rid of these emo bitches.

  • Vampire Hunter D(ee)

    I was sceptical about Affleck and I happily eat my words now, but to my defense, it was still justified to be sceptical. I don’t think he did a lot of great work before. He was always at his best when the character was close to his real self, for example the dude who cheats on his wife with a younger woman in “Gone Girl”.

  • Vampire Hunter D(ee)

    Controversial opinion, but I prefer the darker superheroes as nobody can do the positive ones anymore. Not saying it’s impossible- but in fact the last decade they tried to do it many times and they failed. That innocence in the Donner “Superman” movies came from the heart. In “Captain America”, “Superman Returns” and “Spiderman” though it was just misplaced, phoney kitsch.

    Hackmans Luthor…EXACTLY.
    If DC is trying to follow the comics…they must have forgotten Lex is supposed to be incredibly intelligent and personable, charming at times…the guy does become President at some point doesn’t he?

    Eisenberg was like a more spastic, wiggling Elon Musk on Crystal Meth.

  • I think guardians of the galaxy had come closest to the old fashioned fun super hero movies.

  • If I’m not mistaken, he’s actually supposed to be luthor’s son, but your criticism is still valid, regardless.

  • Conspiracyin559

    I remember hearing something like that in the film…was it alluded that Lex Sr. dead? Whats the point of that? Was he killed during man of Steel and thats Jr’s motivation? If so it wasn’t really clear…like a lot of this flick.

    I mean, i followed it easy enough…but so much just didn’t fit well…like they forced a bunch of pieces together to make a film.

  • Conspiracyin559

    Those were fine films…shit my wife even liked them and she’s no comic book chick.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Not in the Captain America movies. Those really capture the essence of the character and proved you can make a compelling superhero movie about a honest, straightforward hero in the modern era without it being boring, cheesy or overly sentimental. Both films amply demonstrated that Snyder’s current take on Superman is misjudged.

  • Exactly. There’s actually a good movie in here somewhere, but it needs a load of editing.

  • Vampire Hunter D(ee)

    I agree that Evans embodies that spirit well, but the movie around it not so much, but that’s just my view. The second was already darker.

  • No controversy really. The better the villain, the better the “hero” movie usually.

    Wouldn’t it have made sense, In a BATMAN v SUPERMAN movie to have a dark and brooding Batman go up against a GOOD, and POSITIVE Superman ? Instead of two assholes fighting each other ?

  • Did we watch the same movie? He had a genius plan . He was going to let Doomsday punch him in the dick and then Superman wouldn’t have his revenge. But stupid Superman had to go and save Lex from Doomsday. And people say this Superman doesn’t save people………

  • Vampire Hunter D(ee)

    Batman v Superman was about Grey vs Grey.

  • The reaction to the destruction of Metropolis : They Build Superman Statues.

  • Its great that Wonder Woman´s whole reason for being there is to get a photograph. And she steals Bruce Wayne’s device for some reason. I guess she thinks that that information is not still on the LexCorp computer after Wayne copies it. So stupid. Then she stays around for no reason after that ( I guess her TURKISH AIRLINES flight was not until some days later…..)

    Note: She changes clothes 3 times in the span of 10 min at the end. She gets out of a taxi, sees the trouble going on in Metropolis on a tv ( dress 1 ) , then the next scene is her in the apartment watching the e-mail ( dress 2 ) , next scene is her boarding an airplane ( turkish airlines, dress 3 ) , and then she turns up as WW ( dress 4 i guess )

    And they don´t spend a second introducing the lasso either. All of a sudden she just has it on DoomCaveTroll……. So gawd damn sloppy.

  • [ insert 50 Shades joke ]

  • What they should have done : The whole bullet subplot, and the senator exploding should be cut out/never filmed. That wheelchair dude should have been made into Metallo ( with Kryptonite heart ) by genius Lex Luthor. Metallo should have disrupted the BvS fight and forced them to team up. That would have kept Doomsday for later films. He should have been teased all through Justice League Part 1, and then be released as a last ditch effort from Darkseid. Then and only then should Superman have made the ultimate sacrifice. And that would even set up the next stand alone Superman movie ( The Return ) after Justice League .

    But what do I know…… Im a Marvel guy…….

  • This movie is gonna crawl to get to $900+ million now .If it gets there before Jungle Book opens its lucky. It should have gotten to $1,5 billion EASILY . The Batman v Superman concept should have been a slam dunk. Its just sad Snyder hates Superman……..

    The fact that this movie opened in China at the same time as everywhere else should be mentioned more in these pieces . Without those china dollars it would be in 12th place behind Spiderman 3 and Ironman 3 as far as worldwide openings.

    Now the DC diehards know how the Transformers fans felt after Bayformers. And Michael Bay ( Zacks former school buddy ) keeps making those movies , even though, by his own admission, they keep getting worse. And Zack will now film 8 hours worth of jumbled shit, and cut it into two transformers quality Justice League movies. And that shit is soooo SAD.

  • Zack can’t take all the blame, leave some for the writers and producers who signed off on it.

  • Stalkeye

    I disagree!!
    Spiderman and Captain America was not phony kitsch. There were concise and sincere motivations of why they became heroes.

  • Stalkeye

    Thanks, Turd!
    I couldn’t have said it any better.

  • Stalkeye

    Scott shouldn’t be surprised when he goes to the movies with two women only to have them chat it up. Imagine if they were two Sistas, whoa boy, you may need to break out the ear plugs!!!! XD

  • Vampire Hunter D(ee)

    I knew you would disagree, lol.

  • Stalkeye

    Ha! You have better ideas than those fuckers at WB!

  • Stalkeye

    Todd was right about suggesting that the Aquaman, Flash and Cyborg snippets should’ve been saved for mid/post credits.
    The “I thought she was with you” lines felt phoned in just for levity’s sake and two 40 second scenes in which WW’s picture is starred at was as bad as the silly “hallucinations” of Captain Stacy from Amazing Spiderman 2.
    Zac has dropped the ball on this one but like you said, the last 45 minutes were good.
