I don't know if anyone has pointed this out...but that scan of Kraven vs. Black Panther is Alyosha...Not Sergei.

Which one? The one Where BP wins? Or loses?

The only fight between T'Challa and Sergei was laced with factors and didn't have a winner. The fight where Kraven beats Black Panther in the kitchen, and then Black Panther stands over Kraven in front of the Avengers, are both Kraven's son, Alyosha.

On Earth-2 they actually had a great ending. But on the flip side, they have a ginormous asteroid heading their way, so I guess our negative isn't so bad.

The turned one of the most brutal and heartbreaking moments into a freaking mystery. Now everyone will tune in just to see who it was. Feels like such a cheap cliffhanger. Everything else was great, though.

Same thing here. I was expecting the Senate hearing to be the place, where he show the people, who he is via words, but I guess Snyder is reallyyyy hooked on making Superman go through hoops of making him lose hope in us, lol. But, I feel like they'll use the rebirth of Superman as a stepping stone on making him the generic Superman that many of us are looking for, as long as Snyder isn't involved in future projects as the headmaster aka director.

By the way, I agree with you on Clark not trying hard enough to explain to Bruce the predicament Lex placed him in. During those scenes, I was like just bear hug him and tell him already, lol.

Yes, the senate would've been a great time to get a good Superman speech in there. Or the balcony with Lois. Or when he visited his mom. Or during a conflict with Batman. I didn't mind Superman conveying a lot of his emotion physically in MoS, but they really missed out on big opportunities this time around.

Thanks.

I loved the film.

My only qualm was watching batman drag a car with people inside behind the Batmobile and mow people down with turrets from the Batplane.

Fucking terrible. Whoever made those creative decisions should be punched. Hard.

I really hope Superman's sacrifice makes Batman go non-lethal, even though those weapons have probably always been on his vehicles. He seemed to imply toning it down in his talk with Wonder Woman ("I failed him in life, I won't fail him in death") and choosing not to brand Lex... I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

I fall somewhere between "Well, its ok. Just glad I watched it" and "Met my expectations, great movie!"

@manofsteel11: Yeah, I understand how it all played out (I've seen the movie 4 times now), but, as I said above, I feel it was a missed opportunity to show a little more of Superman's good nature.

@k4tzm4n: He smiled twice in the movie, the child rescue and with Lois(Though, if I had a naked Amy Addams in front of me, I'd smile too) . I'm not asking for him to be all cheery, but all he was was sad or upset.

And I'm seeing the movie again today, but he had a "Well, this is too bad" look on his face from what I remember.

Yeah, I don't mind because of the direction they're taking with the character, but I really wanted more of his good spirit to shine through when it was needed. I mean, we know he's good through his actions, but I'd love to hear more from him; give an inspiring speech or two.

Superman not having enough benevolence is my flaw with the film. It's like Snyder told Cavill, "Okay, Superman is conflicted, so to convey that, don't smile... At all, or emote."

I mean, his passive face when that Senate blew up made me cringe, look surprised look horrified, SOMETHING!

I do like how he smiled as he handed over the child in the Day of the Dead rescue. As for the senate scene, I remember him looking pretty heartbroken there. It's not over the top, but I could have sworn his eyes were watery.

I don't get the "they spent too much time building the JL" complaints. To each their own, but I think they included the additional cameos in a very simple way that didn't convolute the plot and gave us the fan service we craved. As for Wonder Woman, it was always said she'd be a supporting character, and I think they did a fine job building her up before she literally leaps into action. I don't know why anyone would go in expecting more - or less - from her; it was to get the general audience more interested in her before her movie drops, and I think they succeeded there.
