It’s something that just hit me the other day. Think about it…
*Two heroes who should be best friends were tricked into fighting by a background manipulator, the death of a mother being integral to the finale of both fights. Both were incredibly dark movies with the superheroes often intent on murdering the other and both had major characters in small roles (Batman and Wonder Woman) who appeared and stole the show as the best thing in said movie. Both movies also started with massive civilian casualties during a superhero event prompting the schism between the two guys in costumes. Both also had endings I genuinely can’t quite remember. Did Cap get arrested at the end of Civil War? Did somebody free them? Did Superman die? Did we see his chest moving? I need to see them again to be sure, but these movies are a lot more similar than people are noticing.
