@the_stegman: As are you but we share differences of opinion on this when it seems you're willing to set your standards a lot lower for Superman in movies currently even though you like classic Superman in the comics.

The thing is BvS defenders paint everyone as haters for all the same reasons. What irks me is that BvS has some real, true problems that I feel like won't be addressed because everyone keeps doting on the same idiot complaints.

I don't think BvS is too dark, or too confusing.

My issue is that its just not a smart story, and doesn't feature any smart characters.

The World's Greatest Detective doesn't question a single thing... doesn't pick up on a single clue. Let's himself get played. Adam West's cheeseball 60's Batman shows way more intelligence in his puns alone. "Hmm, Luthor getting all this kryptonite. Weird lady took the data I stole off Luthor. Dude that worked for me blew himself up and the only person not there is the guy who was paying him off, Lex Luthor. Hmm... Luthor. Lex Luthor. Name keeps coming. Guess I better KILL SUPERMAN".

Then an oblivious Superman who is equally as dumb:

"Hey, I don't like you Batman... I know you only beat up bad guys, which must mean the guys you're chasing in that truck are bad, but I don't care that they have machine guns and a rocket launcher, I'm going to interrupt you to get in your face and tell you... 'Don't do that' ".

WTF was even the point of that? In that scene, both of them should have ended their sentences with 'Bro'. Just dumb as all get out.

I LIKE a Superman that had to kill Zod to protect the innocent. I don't like a Superman who wouldn't bust criminals first before getting in Batman's face. It made no sense. Ditto for Luthor holding a certain someone hostage. Now, I read that a deleted scene shows Superman making at attempt to find that kidnapped person first before confronting Batman... which would have made a world of difference to the overall plot and characterization.

A lot of the other bad stuff is just devil in the details.

Can the United States seriously get approval, prep, launch, and blow up a nuclear missile in less than 5 minutes? It takes Superman about the same amount of time to recover from it?

Speaking of which, is a nuclear missile faster or slower than a speeding bullet?

If I were to fly you into space above New York City, then dropped you and you fell back to Earth... would you actually land somewhere on the same block from whence we came? Or did Doomsday just have a thing for smashing empty buildings on a very specific block and bee-lined it back to that spot?

A certain milestone moment in comics is pretty much the last 10 minutes of the film? Its the equivalent of Gwen Stacy's death at the end of ASM2. Rushed and not handled well.

Friend said to me, "Well, he had to die so that the people would love him again". Really? Isn't the mere fact that Luthor gets exposed for being behind every single evil plot not enough to accomplish the same end result?

I wanted an epic film ala Dark Knight or Avengers and what I got was the DC version of Transformers or Amazing Spider-man. Good eye candy, but just not smart. Man of Steel, which I actually like, had a lot more going on than BvS did.

I will give it another chance and watch the extended cut... maybe with my expectations busted, I can be more accepting of it the 2nd time around.

the most universally-despised movie of all time, now with never-before-seen footage

Nah, that's the FF Reboot, at least in terms of superhero movies.

@amazing_webhead: Its not even the most despised Batman movie as Forever and Robin take that place.

Nah, just Batman and Robin. Forever has a good balance of badass Batman stuff and goofy sh*t imo.

- Gosh. Barbara looks awfull. I tought it was an original character at first.

- By the way Wonder woman Gets more extra content than actual screen time in this movie.

I enjoyed the movie and didn't hear anyone complain on the way out of the theater, so seeing something with a bit more substance won't be much different.

An open mind is led to sway.

I really hope that the extra 30 minutes helps flesh out the movie a bit more and potentially redeem it all together.

I will look at it to so if there are better feats on it (like Superman ramming a missile).

@knightofthechronicle: You're really not. I consider the source, in any case. A guy above us made an entire spiel about how Dawn of Justice wasn't as epic as the Dark Knight or the Avengers.

Malone isn't Barbara...IIRC she's still playing an unidentified character. But, from the looks of it, she's probably Cat Grant. It would be cool if she was Barbara though.

@buttersdaman000:

I hope it is a new character. She looks bad as Barbara (Unless she is undecover...?) and Cat Would be compared to the one from Supergirl who is one of the best characters in that show, here she will have few minutes to make an impresison and we already have Lois and Perry in the Daily Planet, she would end like Olsen.

@redmanta said:

so Jena Malone is cat grant

Exactly what I also think. That doesn't really seem like Barbara Gordon, more like Cat Grant. And it makes more sense for Cat to speak with Lois about journalism than Barbara Gordon.

So...this is the ultimate cut, but will we get the pg 13 cinema version in this or will it be available seperately(If at all)...??

I just want 2 compare both of them...

I hope that we get to see more from Superman's arc and his point of view of his situation. Btw, I knew that the Batman vs LexCorp security guards would come to this! Can't wait to see another awesome fight scene (unless it's stealth) from Batman, because the action of this movie was really underwhelming.

@captain_batman_ftw: Would be a(nother) missed opportunity if she's not Barbara Gordon. In that brief tease definitely seems like Cat Grant =/

Trailer seems good. Glad that it has that scene with Batman at Lexcorp. All we need in it is some character development. It was a flawed movie but I did like it because of Batman, Alfred and Diana. Hope the ultimate cut ends up better.

No super edition will change Batman being a murderer.

Or the terrible editing.

Or sad excuse for a pre Justice League film

Or the most butchered Death of Superman adaptation

@apokos7: You can see Barbara Gordon in the trailer.

No Caption Provided

There's also a Bruce-in-the-shower scene.

waitwaitwait....was it confirmed that Jena Malone is playing Barbara Gordon? Or is it just a rumor/fan speculation...because based on those 2 seconds from the trailer I don't think she is...hope I'm wrong

I'm pretty sure there's a high chance at least the editing will be fixed, considering that, in my opinion, the scenes were so badly edited in the movie because they had to remove scenes, and so, since this edition adds said scenes, the movie will probably flow better with smoother editing. Here' s hoping at least.

As for the other stuff...weeeellll if you didn't like it in the theatrical release then nothing will change for you here unless they have like a completely alternate ending (like..Superman not dying) which I highly doubt.
