oooOOooOK! So being the movie snob that I am and going into this movie with reservation and preconceived notions have now been completely tossed out the window. There are very few times that I prove myself in error and this would have to be it. Batman versus Superman: Dawn of Justice blew away any online hatred that I may have had about Ben Affleck as "Batman" and Jeremy Irons as "Alfred"...HOWEVER, I must point out that all but ONE point in this movie got crossed off my reservation list...Jesse Eisenberg. Nothing against his acting prowess more so on the casting choice to play the all-to-serious and overtly intelligent human, Lex Luthor. His portrayal and look just did not do it for me.
Alright got that bad lemon out of the way. Regardless of THAT character the movie was phenomenal and carried me all the way through wanting more. I have to say and will point out that DISNEY and Marvel but mostly DISNEY are maleficent, jealous, and sinister. DC Comics is breaking into the movie business and from what the "reviews" state of this movie, I declare as all false. Perhaps Disney PAID...PAIIIIID writers and skeptics to put down this movie. Who knows? I for one am not buying the negative feedback.
All I can say...Wonder Woman...FUUUUUCK YEAH!!!!
The producers kept her natural speaking accent in which kept it interstellarly beautiful and unique. Wonder Woman is a magical creature from GREEK Mythology and by keeping her speaking accent unchanged was a worthy addition to the movie!
This movie is NOT a Marvel/Disney flick and if your expecting the humorous puns and over the top CG fight scenes, you are not appreciating cinema. Zack Snyder did a magnificent job with the story line and captured the essence of a TRUE DC Comic portrayal. Marvel has always been a more "playful" comic than DC. I am not sure if this is the best choice of words in describing and I am sure some would disagree. Subjectively, Marvel does too much liberal writing in their comics and always look to relate the average daily life of a human to a super hero. I don't give a shit about Spider Man not getting a date with Mary Jane because he is too pussy to ask her out! I WANT DARKNESS I WANT GODS AMONG MEN!!! For me Comic Book characters portrayed and written in DC are above our mode of thought and physical means. Bruce Wayne is one of us "normal" humans but he is disturbed. DEEPLY disturbed as a child and if you do not know his backstory then your stupid for not. Superman is also disturbed but in a different way. He wants to be human but his alien ability to be super makes him a God. Not saying that Marvel does not have character back drops, I personally feel that DC's characters go far deeper in emotion and thought.
In the end, I am not going to debate which franchise has the bigger dick over the other. The point is DC deserves to break into the Comic Book Movie world and I encourage ALL TO SEE and SUPPORT this type of comic book movie. I will end with this. DC Comics has always laid the foundation of super characters and story lines. If you READ comics you will understand and know that Marvel has always and I mean always copied/mirrored toons from DC...here are some examples of similarities who was created (DC) first/ (Marvel) second:
Atom/Antman -both can shrink
Batman/Ironman-Rich boys one with an iron suit but no parent issues
Superman/Captain American and Hulk-Super in every way basically Gods
Wonder Woman/Thor-Greek/Viking Mythology
The Flash/Quicksilver-both speedsters
