The DCEU… Ok, so this movie series has been the attempt by DC to do with DC what Marvel did with the MCU, and the truth is, is this movie series, unlike Marvel’s MCU, has been in somewhat trouble… I mean the movies are good but are not great… If you are thinking that they are going to be like the movies that Tim Burton (Edward Scissorhands) did with, ‘Batman’, or what Richard Donner (Lethal Weapon) did with Superman… You are probably going to be disappointed…
But if you look at these movies for what they are in the modern sense… Then you will see some light at the end of the tunnel, and that is why I do actually feel quite comfortable recommending: Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice (2016)!
Written by: Chris Terrio (Argo) & David S. Goyer (Green Lantern Corps). Directed by: Zack Snyder (Man Of Steel). Starring: Ben Affleck (Good Will Hunting), Henry Cavill (The Tudors), Amy Adams (Nocturnal Animals), Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), Diane Lane (Unfaithful) & Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman).
“There was a time above… a time before… there were perfect things… diamond absolutes. But things fall… things on earth. And what falls… is fallen. In the dream, it took me to the light. A beautiful lie.” – A quote from Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice (2016).
This movie is the story of what happened during the prolific struggle between Superman and General Zod in Man Of Steel (2013)… And the harm that Batman saw from the man of steel and the war that he sees coming…
And so Batman, instead of focusing on his war of revenge against the same type of criminals that killed his parents… Batman/Bruce Wayne (Aflleck), has decided to go to war with the Man Of Steel/Clark Kent (Cavill)… But during his war with the Man Of Steel, Batman will discover that there is more then meets the eye, when he discovers Lex Luthor, and his involvement in the current events!
You see Lex Luthor (Eisenberg), has been manipulating the battle between the two heroes in his efforts to create his own masterplan to bring about a new Kryptonian/Human hybrid… And his own plans to show the dangers of the aliens among us!
In the end, this movie is not great… it is a modern over CGi’ed film… But the truth is, is it is worth watching… It does have some great moments, and some great talent… So check it out, I think you might like it!
