Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

**The following review doesn’t reveal any Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice spoilers except a brief synopsis and some details revealed in the trailers **

Ever since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was announced at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con, the world has been waiting to see the battle of a lifetime. Nearly three years later, people can now see the Dark Knight go one on one with the Man of Steel on the silver screen for the first time, thanks to director Zack Snyder. Snyder, in a way, has been chosen to lead Warner Bros. with their DC Comics film series. He directed this movie’s predecessor Man of Steel (2013), and will direct the upcoming Justice League films as well as produce Suicide Squad, The Flash, and Aquaman. It’s an interesting choice based on the fact that Snyder is quite the polarizing filmmaker; many critics and fans haven’t approved his work in some time. In fact, Man of Steel was met with a lot of criticism, hence why they didn’t make another solo Superman movie. Instead, they had to add Batman because he is a box office draw. Regardless, this is the beginning of what is to come from DC and Warner Bros., and the tone will be set by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The movie follows the final events from Man of Steel when Superman (Henry Cavill) battle with General Zod (Michael Shannon) nearly destroyed everything in sight in the city of Metropolis. However, the audience is given a different perspective in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. We see the events through the eyes of Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck), who sees his building destroyed, in which some of his employees perish during the brawl. Wayne (who is secretly the Batman) now believes Superman is a force that has to be dealt with, because though he is seemingly doing good, he could “burn this whole place down” and the world would have to watch.
