Now don’t get me wrong, that’s still great, but when you take into account that The Dark Knight grossed $533.3 million in 2008, without 3D, a total under $450 million might look somewhat underwhelming for a movie as big as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
The 45-second sequence depicts Eisenberg’s manic Luthor surprisingly speechless, inside of General Zod’s Kryptonian vessel, seemingly interacting with a giant creature that’s most definitely from another world. We don’t know. We just know she was here 100 years ago and now she’s back because Lex Luthor dug up some dirt on her. Cool. Read our review to find out what we thought of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. I was more than willing than give the movie a fair try, but the doubt of anything good being salvaged from “Man of Steel” lingered prominently in my brain. After firstly establishing why he ” felt like we had to kill Superman in this movie in order for us to have been serious with the entire premise of the film”, he further explained Superman’s charter arc. But before the creature dies, it then stabs Superman with one of its spikes, killing the superhero. “The movie I felt like didn’t really have a heart”. And even though BvS has just hit theaters after months of anticipation, elated fans and cynical critics alike are already looking forward to Zack Snyder’s Rated R Ultimate Edition, which will feature 30 more minutes of footage and is expected to arrive later this summer. He promptly projects this complex onto his new frenemy, Batman (Ben Affleck), who returns the favor and wishes to see Superman dead.
I actually like Henry Cavill’s portrayal of Superman. Batman and Superman’s personal philosophies seem very interchangeable, which makes their dislike for one another to be hypocritical, and just makes them both unlikable. “Batman v Superman” is now DC Comics biggest opening of all time and has surpassed “The Avengers” for best superhero movie opening and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows” for Warner Bros’ best USA opening. They were kinder to the picture too, giving the film a B CinemaScore grade.
I had the exact same reaction to Batman V Superman.
Eisenberg plays Lex Luthor less like a complex villain and more like a cut character from “Mean Girls”. When you’re making that type of money, it doesn’t always matter what the critics say (See: the “Transformers” franchise).
Batman V Superman ends with the devastating death of a pretty major character.
