Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice Hits the Big Screen May 6, 2016

What is known is that Batman v. Superman:  Dawn of Justice  will hit theaters May 6, 2016. Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck will star as Superman and Batman, respectively. However, the plot of the film is being kept under wraps. On the basis of the title alone, we can assume that Batman and Superman square off against each other.  And the other thing we definitely know for sure is that the makers are stirring in all the ingredients they can to make a lot of money. The unfortunate thing is that’s all they care about. It matters not the quality of the movie. Don’t get me wrong—they are entitled to do what they want and, no doubt, everyone will lap it up. But don’t you feel that, with studios’ projections, it’s almost as if they are obligating you to see their movie? Superman and Batman could be standing in the front of the camera for two hours doing nothing and yet the paying public is made to feel like they really have to see this movie. Leave your 12 bucks at the door. The movie may or may not be any good.

Filmmakers are pulling out all the stops. Dawn of Justice  will see the introduction of Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, and Aquaman to the universe established in Man of Steel. Casting has yet to be announced for rumored characters such as Green Lantern and The Flash, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see them show up. While this may seem like a lot in one film, it’s likely that most of the focus will be placed on Superman’s conflict with The Dark Knight and problems that Lex Luthor and other bad guys may cause.

Whatever the case, you will be given plenty of notice, whipped into a frenzy with Batman granola bars and Wonder Woman training bras and be expected to show up when the film is done with post production. Whether the film will be any good is completely arbitrary. It will make a billion dollars at the box office and that is all that matters to the studio and (almost) everyone else.

To comic book purists, my sympathies are with you.

    Look my friend like I have told others who have speculated no matter where Batman or Superman go they will always make money even if someone was selling energy bars on a corner etc. because of all the hard work DC did in making those two fictional characters into brand names its not the studios fault. So yea when they’re put on live action screen for the first time its a big deal (so be ready my friend when they do cross the $billion mark it will happen). Both fans and Hollywood would agree its a historical moment for movies; and having live action DC is one thing, but having both the Bats and Supes on the same screen is now transcending this simple movie into a level all on its own. The movie will not suck. You may imply all u want but it will not secondly. If you have heard there is more a lot more happening behind the scenes then what we know. Why don’t we just keep an open mind till the movie comes out. If you haven’t seen Batflecks or CavillMans costumes I advise you too in seeing how Snyder is shaping up this movie to be. Maybe it could ease the speculations. And you don’t need to apologize I’m a comic book fan as much as others like Kevin Smith and though he knows more were both loving what’s happening.
