Batman vs Superman vs Lex Luthor vs Doomsday vs Wonder Woman

This is the result of having 5 pots (characters) and 2.5 lids (hours)… with a storyline that is some sort of a amalgam of how many Michael Bay moments you can fit in and a dash of a comic book storyline (you know… black embossed cover with white bag). I won’t say that the movie is terrible… but it sure is a letdown. Let’s just say the best things that came out of the movie were Hans Zimmer and surprisingly… Gal Gadot.

Now, I’m not too concerned about Civil War… because Marvel seems to be smart enough to have named the entire movie after a specific comic book story arc and are unlikely to stray too far… rights and legal issues notwithstanding. They also made the smart decision to wait a good 8 years from the first Iron Man to build the majority of the characters independently before attempting the comic book equivalent of the WWF/WWE Royal Rumble unlike DC.

There’s more… but I won’t spoil it for those who haven’t seen it yet. I mean DC already did that for you guys anyway HA HA! Annoyed nerd mode disabled…

SPOILERS BELOW…

Here’s a movie that I thought would have been so much better… if it was two movies. The truth is that the “Death of Superman” storyline was such a big event in the DC universe that it without a doubt deserves its own movie. Imagine that it had been set up by a Justice League movie that may or may not have been part of an imaginary Batman vs Superman that was actually about Batman vs Superman… mainly because a bunch of the Justice League gets smashed in the first few pages of “Death of Superman” and the movie order being reversed wouldn’t make much sense. Wait… was it Justice League members that got swatted around before Superman got to the scene in that comic?
