This pic looks fine, but I’m officially worried about this movie after that trailer. Superman and Batman are my all-time fave characters and I should be chomping at the bit to see this, but it seems to… mis-timed. It feels like one of those dark, noughties movies where comic flicks needed to be legitimised instead of the pure joy of Superman and Batman being together, which I think is what audiences are responding to now. We should feel fantastic when we see these guys and love seeing them back to back against Luthor and The Joker or whomever. As is…
My sister and her family were just totally confused. When they saw it they said they had no idea what they were supposed to think. Was Superman now a bad guy? Was Batman now a bad guy? DC taking a huge risk building their entire cinematic universe on this tone started in MOS. I wish I loved these, but I just can’t engage with them at all.
