Good, Bad, Or Terrible: First Reactions To Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

It’s the home stretch for anyone who is eagerly awaiting the premiere of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. The massive budget movie is scheduled to be released on March 25th with limited releases the day before. Yesterday, the premier happened with all the stars on the red carpet to welcome their creation into the world. For those that have been living under a rock, the latest DC Comics inspired movie takes place after the latest Superman reboot. Batman believes the alien to be the single greatest threat to humanity and decides to take things in his own hands. What Lex Luthor calls “The greatest gladiator match in the history of the world” ensues.

Even before the movie was finished it received a lot of negative criticism for the casting of Ben Affleck as the new Batman instead of Christian Bale who brought mass popularity the newest Batman Trilogy. But with the addition of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman people couldn’t wait. Clearly, with this movie as well as the announcement of others like Aquaman the studio is making an attempt at setting up a Justice League movie to rival The Avengers franchise. With all the hype, it is easy to dismiss any positive remarks as praise purely from the comic book fan community but reviews from critics are widely positive.

Emma Gritt of The Sun is one of the only critics to come out with a public review. She said, “The intensity of the insanely long film is achieved with special effects, plot twists, geeky references and the volume being turned up to eleven from start to finish,” Her high praise also came with a caveat, “While die-hard DC Comic devotees might be punching the air as the Justice League are teasingly introduced, the average film fan may be left scratching their head. Overall Zac Snyder’s Batman v Superman blockbuster is an emotionally charged punch-up — but it’s newcomer Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman who really steals the show.”

Her review along with fans that attended the premiere are the only source of information we have to go on. All other critics have their lips sealed until Tuesday 6PM per the restriction the studio placed on them for early viewing. But, we do have just some of the wildly positive tweets from some of the moviegoers.
