Holy frickin WOW! Best Superhero movie of all time! I absolutely LOVED it! What did you all think?!?!
they totally favored Batman fanboys. Superman could have killed Batman with 1 punch if he wanted to.
Not true about favoritism.
Also, Bruce Wayne/Batman had more screen time than everyone because they were introducing a new Batman to develop in this series that had already introduced Superman. There was no bias in this film. It purely was a great and dramatic calmbination of DC stories to start their extended universe.
Yeah it was good if you know nothing about Batman...
I dont know how to do the spoiler thing so if i screw it up im sorry, and this is your warning. SPOILERS!
Batman never uses guns... EVER! In fact he forbids the entire bat-family from using them, with the exception of Red Hood. His parents were gunned down so it is something he just DOESN'T DO.
Also, Batman NEVER kills. He takes every precaution needed to prevent someone dying as a direct, or even indirect, cause of his actions. Michael Keaton Batman killed with glee, sure, but that was a movie made by a man who never reads comics. Christian Bale Batman never killed, and dismantled any gun he happened across.
These are 2 VERY key elements to the character of Batman. Even video game Batman (speaking specifically of the rocksteady games) does neither of these things.
Likewise, Superman doesn't kill, aside from Doomsday. EVER! Not Zod, not anyone. In fact Superman usually fights his foes as far away from innocent people as possible to avoid collateral damage.
This is the inherent flaw in these movies. That and Jonathan Kent teaching Clark in the first movie NOT to save everyone all the time, as apposed to the lesson from the comics which is accepting that he CAN'T save everyone all the time. 2 VERY different messages.
Sure the movie was well done from a cinematic point of view, well acted for the most part, and very entertaining. Every time i saw Batman use a gun it took me out of it though.
And for anyone questioning who would win in the comics. It has been done. Not just in Frank Miller's books, but in actual canon stories. Batman has neutralized the entire Justice League. Never killed, just proved he can take them out should he need to. Bruce Wayne is such a paranoid psychopath, he has contingency plans for EVERYTHING. I dont have the time or the energy to find the books that it happens in, but believe me, it happens.
But generally, a good movie.
Maybe Marvel studios are paying off these critics :laugh:
It is not a matter of "growing up" and getting over the no kill rule. It is about having standards for a moralistic superhero like Batman and Superman. Their very inception is around the idea that they set an ideal, and stick by it.
This movie would have been so much more interesting if Snyder had just respected the source material, and had not been just trying to be the next Michael Bay...
