Batman v Superman, why so much hate?

102597285-Batman-vs-Superman.1910x1000

I saw Batman v Superman opening day and I really liked it. Now the editing was a bit off at times, but i was drawn back in after those transitions.

People really have a problem with Superman, and how he was so dark and not the Donner Style of Superman. Well this is not the Donner world, remember that world later had Superman 3 and the Quest for Peace. This Superman was brought into a dark world, the type of world we live in now. He comes to this planet, stained and having to hid his powers that as a kid change him. He has to deal with hearing everyone’s thoughts, lazer eyes, this is a kid who growing up will have issues. He then loses his father who sacrifice his life to keep his son safe. Cut to years later he grows up and a bad guy from the past returns, attacks his mother, and his city. Causing death and destruction, he has to fight both them and our government. Then it comes down to him having to kill Zod to save humans, something that still haunts him. Which also shows the humans that Superman is willing to kill if he has to, even if its for “good”.

Also people are upset that Superman as killed at the end. We have to remember that even though this is the 2nd time we’ve seen this adaptation of Superman, he’s been on this planet for 3 years. Earth in this film has had Superman flying around for 3 years. In that 3 years he has had happy go-lucky-times with Lois and his life. When we come to this part of his life Batman is becoming more violent, and the government his coming down harder on him.

Then you come to Lex and many say he had no real purpose to attack Superman and Batman. He says in the film that his father lived a time where people threw flowers at dictators. He does not want to see that, so his plan is to kill Superman using Batman. Lex of course has a plan going past the death of Superman so he needs Batman out of the way. Which means ether they kill each other of as we see at the end Superman kills Batman and Doomsday kills Superman. The way to kill Doomsday after he kills Superman is with kryptonite, like how they do in the film. So Lex plans on having both Superman and Batman out of the picture anyway he can. If Superman did not die in the end I would have felt like it had no ending. He needed to die to redeem himself to the humans and for Batman to go back to his old ways.

I also liked how they introduced the future Justice League members. The Flash was cool, his speed force is more like real lightning, Aquaman was cool, and Cyborg was interesting because I really like that he’s a member of this team. Now I don’t know how a solo movie of him will work. Even the logos made by Lex Corp was OK with me, it didn’t take me out of the film. If we had seen that in an animated version no one would have a problem with it.

Now we come to the part everyone makes fun of. MARTHA! People are so mad that by Superman saying his mother’s name is also Martha makes him and Batman friends. No, the name does throw Batman off cause he thinks he’s talking about his mother at first and gets mad. Its when Lois tells him that Lex has his mother, who is named Martha. That’s when batman realizes that both him and Superman have been getting played. So he goes saves Superman’s mom and has Superman go fight Lex.

I will not understand why fans hate this film, it was good and I will be owning the uncut bluray!

Batman v Superman Trailer Review

Batman-vs.-Superman-Dawn-Of-Justice

The new trailer for Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman film dropped yesterday. We got some incite to the film’s plot, and a few spoilers.

When the trailer opens up we see a press event taking place set up my LexCorp. Clark is there covering the event for the Daily Planet. Then Gotham’s must famous playboy millionaire Bruce Wayne shows up. We get a good look at Ben Affleck’s  Bruce. He’s older, and from the conversation with Clark about the diffrences between Superman and Batman, it looks as if Bruce knows that Clark is The Man of Steel.

We also get a reference to the Joker, you can tell when Affleck says, “Maybe its the Gotham City in me…” you can tell he’s been wanting to say that since childhood!

We then get to see Lex introduce the two hero’s in a very corny fashion. It’s like Gene Hackman’s Lex Luthor but as a young man. Although the whole hand shaking line from Lex saying how firm Clark’s was is stupid.

It’s shown that Bruce and Lex have meet in the past, most likely is business passing.

We then get another look into the Batman dream sequence with Superman, cause that’s what it is.

What I thought was interesting is that we get are first bat swear in a movie, “That Son of a Bitch.” I’m sure he must have said “damn” at some point. But throwing at an SOB, this is a more angry, bitter, Batman we are getting.

Lex then says the title of the movie again as he has Lois captured. Which short of shows that he probably knows that Clark is Superman.

Then we get the whole movie RUINED when the studio and the editor of the trailer spoil the surprise plot. We see that Lex is using Zod’s body for some experiments, now we have seen these same things in the previous trailer. What we get to see now is the reveal of DOOMSDAY! Yep, the main villain of the movie and he’s most likely going to be on screen for maybe 20mins. Why show everyone this and not wait to surprise people at the theaters?

Also we get a funny joke between Batman and Superman about Wonder Woman. “She with you?” “I thought she was with you?” ADD LAUGH HERE!

All in all, I liked the trailer. It has its fair share of funny, serious, action, and comic book homage scenes. Will this by past Nolan’s Batman Series in the box office? We shall see, all I know for sure is that nothing is going to beat Star Wars until maybe Captain America: Civil War.

Lex Zuckerberg is here!

Zack Snyder and Warner Brothers just released a pic of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in BATMAN v. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE.

Many have debated on whether or not this new Lex would have hair, well its official we have a bald Lex!

Also he looks terrifying! When I first heard that Eisenberg was cast as The Man of Steel’s arch nemesis I was OK with it. As I’ve said on here before I’m not a fan of The Social Network, but seeing his performance as the fake character Mark Zuckerberg and how evil and manipulative he was made me think that he could be a good Lex Luthor.

Eisenberg, from what I’ve seen in interviews, is sort of an arrogant and self-centered person and again great elements for Lex!

I’m also OK with his age, 31, cause now a days business moguls are in their late 20’s and 30’s.

This is how I think they are going to use the Lex Luthor in the film:

After the events of Man of Steel Metropolis is ground zero and several people don’t know whether to trust Superman or not. Then LexCorp comes in to help rebuild the city, with the help of Wayne Enterprise and his CEO Bruce Wayne. Lex doesn’t trust Superman, blames him for the events of Man of Steel and bringing aliens to earth. He takes the body of Zod to see what these aliens are made out of. He also works with the US Government looking over what they could use to fight something like Superman. Lex looks to Bruce for help in finding ways to defeat Superman if needed. Bruce is willing to work with Lex just to know what all he’s up to. Bruce is doing his own experiments and most likely already knows who Superman is.

But that’s just my idea, I do wish we get a glimpse of the robot suit Lex wears.

The worst part is that we have to wait till 2016 to see any of this.
