Batman v Superman Show Notes

  • Batman v Superman still made a ton of money in its first weekend, $166 million domestic, $254 overseas.
  • Where is Justice League headed?
  • Eisenberg’s Luthor–should he be in any more DC movies?
  • Do we trust Superman?
  • Do we care what happens to any of the characters?
  • Are we confident in Batman?
  • Where’s the fun?
  • Intro to Justice League–Flash and Wonder Woman were good but Aquaman and Cyborg sequences sucked.
  • Iron Man made us want a BIGGER movie so we got Avengers. It got too serious so we got Ant-Man. It got too supernatural so we got Captain America: Civil War that brought it down to earth. We’re not getting that with DC movies–they’re disjointed.
  • Christopher Reeve = HOPE. Michael Keaton = Confidence. Christian Bale = Utility (getting the job done). I’m not feeling these emotions with Batman v Superman.
  • When was the last good, solid, universally-accepted DC movie?
  • What will the 3-hour R-rate version bring?
  • Darkseid in the new “Communion” video?



If you enjoyed this podcast and want to donate to a good cause, please consider sending a PayPal gift of any amount to Making Biscuits Cat Rescue. Even if you donate JUST ONE DOLLAR, that dollar will buy a can of food that a rescuer can feed a stray cat, or help get the cat in a humane trap so it can be taken to a low-cost shelter to be checked out medically and spayed/neutered. Just one dollar will help prevent unnecessary kittens being born and help with overpopulation. If you give just one dollar, you’ll feel good about yourself. Promise.
