The much-hyped Batman v Superman: Doomsday Dawn showdown finally arrived on theaters this month, and it was glorious! The DC Comics sequel-prequel was well worth the wait, and it definitely lived up to all the hype, too. The battle-torn city of Metropolis was ablaze with motion, and it featured some of the most memorable fight scenes in recent memory.
If you had the opportunity to see the movie multiple times, you’d know exactly what I’m talking about. The action never seemed to stop in this cinematic adventure filled with twists, turns, and high-octane battles. Even those who had never been particularly fond of superhero movies will have a tough time putting this one down.
All You Need Is Love
One of the most incredible things about Batman v Superman is its ability to successfully marry the dark and the light in a way that felt organic and inevitable. Yes, a part of you wants to see Superman triumph because he’s a symbol of hope in a dark time, but another motivating factor is the villainous nature of Doomsday.
The threat he poses to Metropolis is far more significant than the loss of some obscure little village somewhere. The world as we know it could be over because one man-made creature wants to destroy everyone and everything. That’s a pretty heavy burden for one being to bear, and it makes you start thinking about the bigger picture. Especially when you consider that Superman might not be the only one put in danger by Doomsday. All bets are off if Batman’s association with Bane means anything.
For fans of the Dark Knight, it was an opportunity to relive some of the greatest scenes from the Batman trilogy. It also gave us a new look at one of our favorite DC Comics’ villains in the flesh as he confronts and battles the Dark Knight. It was glorious!
The Best Batman Costume In The Universe
The best part of Batman v Superman is not the fights or the action sequences that propel the story forward. It’s the incredible costumes! The movie is packed with them, and they are all of the highest quality. While the CGI and special effects are incredible, it’s the incredible costumes that will keep you coming back for more. From Catwoman’s bombshell to Black Widow’s mysterious past, the costumes are what makes this movie special.
Wonder Woman Is Back!
Yes, one of the most anticipated superhero movies of the year not only lived up to all the hype but surpassed it. Not only that, but Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman not only lived up to but defied all expectations. Playing a role that has been traditionally male-dominated, the actress’ performance amazed and impressed everyone who watched her unfold before their very eyes.
For years, fans of the superhero genre have been begging the Warner Bros. Studios to give us a glimpse of what happens after Batman and Superman leave the screen. Since 2018’s Batman vs. Superman, we’ve been waiting for the Wonder Woman sequel that was initially supposed to hit theaters in 2020. Ever since, fans have been scrambling to see the film in theaters before its June 25 release date.
More Bats Than You Can Shake A Stick At
Another thing that made Batman v Superman so special is that it gave us more Batman than we’ve ever seen on screen before. More than just a cameo here and there, Batman was front and center the entire time he was on-screen. Whether he was battling with Superman or thwarting the efforts of some kryptonite-laced crook, there was no doubt about who was the main character and the focus of the story. Even those who dislike superhero movies will have a tough time denying that this particular Batman was the best in the universe.
An All-Star Cast To End All All-Stars
One of the reasons that Batman v Superman is so special is that the movie managed to pull off something that’s been impossible up to this point. It had an all-star cast, and not just any all-star cast, either. The movie boasted an incredible ensemble of some of the biggest and brightest stars in today’s filmmaking landscape. Unfortunately, this is also one of the things that makes it so difficult to truly appreciate this particular movie because the hype alone can make everything else disappear for a while. In the end, though, the combined talents of these A-listers were everything we expected and more.
If you’ve never been a big fan of superhero movies, this is the chance to change that. You have everything you need right here. From Catwoman’s slinky dresses to Black Widow’s sleek attire, you’re going to have a blast!
The trailers for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Aquaman have now been released. You can also check out our take on the trailer for Black Panther.
While you’re at it, why not hit the jackpot and see how Aquaman turns out? With a spectacular score by Hans Zimmer, the spectacular visuals, and quite a bit of fun, what more could you ask for?
If you’ve got a hunch that Batman v Superman will be the best superhero movie yet, you might be right. While this year’s box office results may deny that theory, we’d definitely like to think that you’d at least agree that it was a highly entertaining film. If you’ve been waiting for an opportunity to dive into the world of superheroes, this is the movie for you.
