Edit Storyline The general public is concerned over having Superman on their planet and letting the "Dark Knight" - Batman - pursue the streets of Gotham.
Edit Did You Know? Trivia During the S. Labs Cyborg footage, Dr. Stone calls the Mother Box "U. Gov, object ". Goofs When Lois and Jenet are inspecting the bullet, they are using a transmitted tight microscope.
This type of microscope would not produce the images seen on the monitor. They should have been using a stereo-microscope to produce those images.
After everyone leaves, the dirt atop Clark's coffin levitates. Robin Atkin Downes performed the motion capture and voice work for the creature at the film's climax.
The role was kept under such heavy secrecy that Downes did not know who he was playing until the second trailer was released. He doesn't just crawl out of the ground.
He has his own mythology, right? So that has to be explored. Additionally, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Lauren Cohan portray Thomas and Martha Wayne , Bruce Wayne's deceased parents,   Patrick Wilson portrays the President of the United States in a voice role, and Michael Cassidy portrays Jimmy Olsen , a CIA agent.
Senator Patrick Leahy makes a cameo appearance as Senator Purrington, whilst U. Senator Debbie Stabenow also makes a cameo as the Governor of New Jersey.
Jena Malone was cast as S. Labs scientist Jenet Klyburn, but her scenes were cut from the theatrical release, along with Man of Steel characters Coburn Goss as Father Leone, Joseph Cranford as Pete Ross and Emily Peterson as Lana Lang ; they were restored for the Ultimate Edition home media release.
Kofi Outlaw of ComicBook. Writing for Screen Rant , Andrew Dyce wrote "Bruce has, like so many political figures and nations, given up the moral high ground, rationalized his extreme methods as necessary, identified an enemy he does not seek to understand, and abandoned the spirit, if not the explicit values upon which his country - rather, upon which his mission was founded.
Writing for The New Yorker , Richard Brody analyzed the allegory differently: Batman, according to Brody, represents the Democratic Party , whereas Superman represents the Republican Party.
Brody feels this notion is supported by the fact that Batman's eyes glow blue when he is wearing the exoskeleton and Superman's glow red when he uses his heat vision.
Mark Hughes writing for Forbes notes that the film inverts the politics of The Dark Knight Returns by having Superman as the outsider character who is questioned by the government and media.
He writes "This is a reversal of sorts from the comic , where Superman represents the establishment perspective while Batman is the outcast under constant press, public, and government scrutiny.
Then suddenly Superman is vulnerable, he has a regular guy's name and a woman who loves him crying over him, and a mom -- his last words are basically "save my mother.
In June , Warner Bros. Goyer would return for a Man of Steel sequel,  with the studio considering the release for the film in Goyer and Snyder would co-write the story, with Goyer authoring the script   despite saying in that a 'Batman Vs.
Superman' film "is where you go when you admit to yourself that you've exhausted all possibilities In November , Snyder clarified his film would not be based upon the aforementioned graphic novel.
We're bringing Batman into the universe that now this Superman lives in. According to him, "In superhero stories, Batman is Pluto, god of the underworld, and Superman is Apollo, god of the sky.
That began to be really interesting to me — that their conflict is not just due to manipulation, but their very existence. The film's official title, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice , was revealed in May It's a separate entity altogether.
It's introducing the Batman character and expanding upon the universe, which was kicked off by Man of Steel. Henry Cavill , Amy Adams , Kevin Costner , Diane Lane , Laurence Fishburne , Harry Lennix and Christina Wren reprise their roles from Man of Steel.
Dawn of Justice is Affleck's second film as a comic book superhero; he played Daredevil in the film of the same name ,  and was initially reluctant to accept playing Batman, citing that he "felt [he] didn't fit the traditional mold.
But once Zack [Snyder] showed [him] the concept, and that it would be both different from the great movies that Chris[topher Nolan] and Christian [Bale] made, but still in keeping with tradition, [he] was excited.
Snyder cast an older Batman to be a layered juxtaposition against a younger Superman; while "bear[ing] the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain[ing] the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne.
On casting Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Snyder offered, "Having Jesse in the role allows us to explore that interesting dynamic, and also take the character in some new and unexpected directions".
This deviates from the character's original origins, where she was "a clay figure brought to life by the gods". The casting of Affleck, Gadot, and Eisenberg was criticized.
Affleck's casting caused significant backlash from comic book fans, with multiple online petitions demanding his removal from the role; unlike previous Batman actors, he was not considered intimidating enough for the role by the protesters.
I'll let that one speak for itself. Michael Wilkinson reprised his duties as costume designer. He updated the Superman suit from Man of Steel so that it "feels fresh and right for this installment of Zack Snyder's comic-book universe".
A second Batsuit was also unveiled at Comic-Con, and unlike the first, it is armored. Studios lot, the next generation Batmobile combined inspiration from both the sleek, streamlined design of classic Batmobiles and the high-suspension, military build from the more recent Tumbler from The Dark Knight Trilogy.
Designed by production designer Patrick Tatopoulos , the Batmobile is about 20 feet long and 12 feet wide. In September , Larry Fong joined the crew as cinematographer , having previously worked with Zack Snyder on , Watchmen , and Sucker Punch.
Additional filming began in Chicago, Illinois in November Hans Zimmer composed the film score,  emphasizing a challenge not to reuse the themes he established with the Batman character from Christopher Nolan 's trilogy.
Songs featured in the film include: "Kang Ling An Instrument Made From A Human Thigh Bone ", a traditional song performed by the monks of the Dip Tse Chok Ling Monastery, Dharamshala ; " Night and Day " and " Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye " written by Cole Porter and performed by Richard Cheese ; " Shostakovich: Waltz II Jazz Suite No.
The trailer was, unlike the teaser, which received mixed response, positively received by attendees, who gave the trailer a standing ovation.
Warner Bros. Consumer Products partnered-up with "a powerhouse slate of global licensees for a broad, multi-category licensing and merchandising program", including Mattel , Lego , Rubies, Funko , Thinkway Toys, Hot Toys , Junkfood, Bioworld, Pez , Seiko , Converse and among many other licensees to sell merchandise related to the film.
Also, there are a series of four minicomics found in Batman v Superman -branded General Mills cereals. The third trailer debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
It received positive responses,    with Scott Mendelson of Forbes calling the trailer a "Saturday morning cartoon nerd's wildest dreams.
While that ended with a showdown between three heroes, this trailer moves beyond that to show three heroes standing united.
It's a far cry from the somewhat cartoonish villain we've seen in the clips from the film. The final trailer was released to the public on February 11, , which was described as "intense" by Kwame Opam of The Verge.
So now we have this fourth and final sell, and at least they are going out on a high note. In February , Warner Bros. International Enterprises.
In November , Warner Bros. In January , however, the studio announced that it was delayed from its original release date of July 17, , and moved to May 6, , in order to give the filmmakers "time to realize fully their vision, given the complex visual nature of the story.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice premiered at Auditorio Nacional in Mexico City on March 19, ,  followed by a New York City premiere on March 20 at Radio City Music Hall.
In its second weekend , Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice experienced a "historic" box-office drop,   with an In the weeks leading up to the film's release, advance ticket sales outpaced The Dark Knight Rises , The Avengers , and Furious 7.
A survey carried out showed that the introduction of Wonder Woman is a primary draw for moviegoers. It earned just 1. In Mexico, it had the biggest opening day for Warner Bros.
In Japan, it opened in third place, behind two local films, Assassination Classroom: Graduation and Doraemon: Nobita and the Birth of Japan It became the Warner Bros.
The website's critical consensus reads: " Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice smothers a potentially powerful story — and some of America's most iconic superheroes — in a grim whirlwind of effects-driven action.
Lindy West in The Guardian described the film as " minutes of a grown man whacking two dolls together", asking "[h]as the definition of 'movie' changed from 'motion picture story that a human wrote on purpose' to ' only tangentially related second grey and red vignettes'?
Scott of The New York Times wrote: "The point of Batman v Superman isn't fun, and it isn't thinking, either. It's obedience. The theology is invoked And in that way the film serves as a metaphor for its own aspirations.
The corporations that produce movies like this one, and the ambitious hacks who sign up to make them, have no evident motive beyond their own aggrandizement.
The movie is bat-shit crazy. A dour, disdainful demeanor, plus a gluttony of complex plot twists, dissipates most of the contact high. It's almost like Zack Snyder didn't read a bunch of comics, he read one comic once, and it was Dark Knight Returns , and his favorite part was the last part where Batman and Superman fight.
Taking a softer tone, David Betancourt of The Washington Post and Scott Mendelson of Forbes praised the film's visual spectacle and performances from Affleck and Gadot, though Mendelson also called the film "an utter mess of thinly sketched characters, haphazard plotting, surprisingly jumbled action".
Batman V Superman ably blows the hinges off the multiplex doors. Multiple commentators criticized Eisenberg on the grounds that his interpretation of Lex Luthor hewed too close to character traits associated with another DC Comics villain, the Joker.
Sonny Bunch of The Washington Post lamented that "As the film progresses, Lex degenerates into a gibbering mad man, some strange mix of the Riddler and the Joker with a little bit of Mark Zuckerberg added for flair.
Watching the trailers, I had thought Eisenberg's loopy acting might be this movie's saving grace — but a concentrated dose of his faux mania actually turns out to be the worst thing.
An extended cut of the film dubbed the Ultimate Edition was released on home media platforms, alongside the theatrical cut.
This version received an R rating from the Motion Picture Association of America , for more violence than the PG rated theatrical cut,   and is longer by 31 minutes.
In the process, it only makes the original cut even more inexplicable and terrible. The film debuted in first place on the home video sales chart for the week ending July 24, Despite being shot partially on IMAX film and released to theaters in 1.
However, on December 12, , Snyder revealed that he is working to restore the IMAX ratio to the film for an upcoming release, in From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
