Batman v Superman surprises

You’ve most likely seen the trailer, which debuted at Comic-Con, for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (coming to theaters March 2016), however just in case, right here it is:

What instantly stood out to me were the things I didn’t like:

Fearing Superman since he’s different as well as can do fantastic things.

Ma Kent (Diane Lane)’s speech about Superman not owing anyone anything. Ma, what occurred to heartland values as well as optimism? (Before that, the bits about hope as well as heroism are nice.)

The general dark mood as well as look, highlighted by requiem music.

Batman being a jerk as well as trying to take down other heroes.

Luthor sounding more like the Joker.

In short, not believing in heroism.

Today, DC released a lightly annotated version of the trailer, with comments mainly speaking about character very first appearances, however while watching this, I noticed some things that I may like about the movie.

Ben Affleck as a truly determined Batman. He looks great in a business suit, too.

I believed Alfred (Jeremy Irons) was Robert Downey, Jr. for a few moments, which led to some interesting concepts about Wayne as well as Stark hanging out together.

Wonder lady (Gal Gadot) seems powerful.

There are more connections to guy of Steel than I realized.

Mercy Graves (Tao Okamoto) is in it as well as looks cool.

Hey! Batman’s dad is the comedian (Jeffrey Dean Morgan)!

Thomas Wayne played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan

In general, I agree with this article “Hollywood is missing the one thing that makes Superman great”:

There’s a fantastic anecdote that legendary comics writer grant Morrison — the guy accountable for one of the very best Superman stories in recent memory, 2005’s All-Star Superman — tells about Superman in his memoir Supergods. In the memoir, he mentions the motivation for his story — he was at a convention, as well as he saw a handsome guy in a Superman costume just sitting down as well as relaxing on a stoop.

That was Morrison’s epiphany: the most powerful guy to life wouldn’t be tortured however instead would be the friendliest, most relaxed person you ever saw….

Superman isn’t great or special since he’s an alien who accidents on earth as well as ends up being incredibly powerful. He’s special since besides that he becomes somebody who always does the right thing since he was increased by a couple of decent people from Kansas.

But that’s not in fashion, I guess, as well as since The Dark Knight was DC’s biggest contemporary superhero media success, I assumption it’s understandable that they want to preserve that mood.
