Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

batmanvsupermanBillionaire Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck), who hunts criminals as the masked vigilante Batman in Gotham City, is furious to see Superman (Henry Cavill) partly responsible for so many deaths in Metropolis. The 3D sequel to Man of Steel (2013) is more ambitious, visually and narratively, but once you get over the thrill of watching these legendary superheroes clash there isnā€™t much to derive pleasure from here. Bombastic, grim and solemn, with an irritating music score, the movie is cluttered (Wonder Woman barely makes an impact) and the climactic Doomsday battle inspires fatigue.

2016-U.S. 153 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ Zack Snyder. Screenplay: Chris Terrio, David S. Goyer. Cast: Ben Affleck (Bruce Wayne/Batman), Henry Cavill (Clark Kent/Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Jesse Eisenberg (Alexander ā€œLexā€ Luthor), Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburneā€¦ Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Gal Gadot, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner. Voices of Carla Gugino, Patrick Wilson. Cameos: Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Jason Momoa.

Trivia: Co-executive produced by Christopher Nolan. Also released in a 183-min. version. Several news personalities have cameos, and so does U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy (just as he did in three previous Batman movies). Followed by Justice LeagueĀ (2017), but Batman also appeared in Suicide Squad (2016). Gadot also got her own spin-off movie,Ā Wonder Woman (2017).
