Laced with opportunities for sequels, Batman vs. Superman, Dawn of Justice, has hit the theaters with a whopping running time of 2 hours and 31 minutes. Starring Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman and Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, it’s nothing like any other Batman or Superman movie you’ve seen in the past!
Moment after moment and scene after scene, good versus evil and God versus man are still prevalent throughout, but there is an extremely heavy darkness that the film carries. The injections of humor that these Superhero’s super movies were once riddled with have been dialed back, way back, to a point where some may say that it’s too much gloom not enough hum(or).
Both Batman and Superman, steeped in egotistical extravagance, present throughout the movie in a manner seeking reverence from the populations of Gotham and Metropolis rather than simply being in it for the good of all mankind. And the brute strength and superhuman powers that they possess are skewed and overshadowed by the films excessive use of special effects.
If you are a true fan of either Batman or Superman, there is unfortunately a chance that you may be quite disappointed by the films lack of seizing the opportunity to give the true score settling battle that you are probably awaiting. Perhaps that is in the plans, somewhere several sequels away. In the meantime, I’m certain that DC Comics and all of its affiliates would appreciate you taking advantage of the several other products and promotional items that are being created to keep you hanging on in hopes of ever finally settling the score.
