Get Doomsday out of the film and give Batman and Superman a much longer series of battles that can even stop and start in new places and environments and relies on Bruce's so called detective skills. There was hardly any fighting between them. They also need a more compelling reason to fight. I just didn't buy the mother as hostage thing.
Let's Fix It: Batman v. Superman(2016)
Have Superman act like Superman. The central problem is that the premise is built on the differences in ideals, when both Superman and Batman aren't very different in this movie. It should be hope and idealism vs gritty cynicism but it's just gritty cynicism vs other gritty cynicism.
Also, completely overhaul the character of Lex. You don't even have to recast him. Just make him an actual, credible threat and not an annoying, twitchy goofball. I get that they were trying to make a modern take on the character more in line with Millenial rich dudes like Zuckerberg, but it just didn't work.
1. Work on the directing(Movie was all over the place no sense of direction, made no sense
2. Work on the writing/story telling. A decent plot not a setup movie for another movie. And if they're going to setup another movie than at least do it so the main film is still it's own stand alone film.
3. DONT RUSH ANYTHING
4. Character development.
5. Lex luthor Acts more like joker than lex luthor.
6. Making everything all dark and gloom, yeah it worked for the dark knight trilogy because batman is a dark character but superman is supposed to be a beacon of hope, and justice. Same with Wonder Woman im not saying go full out Silly, just remove some of the gloomy negative vibes bring positive exciting scenes, a thrill almost.
7.Get rid of Momoa
Take off doomsday, cast Bryan Cranston as Lex Luthor, don't have batman kill anybody, take off dream sequences and have a longer fight between batman and superman. Take Batman's age to 37 instead of 42-44.
Rename the movie "Superman/Batman: World's Finest"
Plot: Superman is loved and hated by many but is happily living with Lois Lane. Clark visits Gotham and sees the Batman in action as he stops a bank robbery. Superman confronts Batman because he does not like Batman's methods. Batman obviously does not care. Meanwhile Lex Luthor is looking to kill Superman because his family was killed during the battle of metropolis. He has found kryptonite and has found a way to control superman via mind control. He decides to go after Batman since he is messing up his plans in Gotham. The mind controlled Superman goes after Batman while he is fighting mercenaries hired by Lex. Batman tells Alfred to Call in his "good friend". Wonder Woman shows up and bruce takes out a piece of kryptonite and knocks superman out. Wonder Woman is severely injured after the battle with superman but will live. Bruce is infuriated when he finds out this is Lex Luthor's fault. He assaults LexCorp single handedly but runs into an Amazo. Just as Batman is about to be killed, Superman and Wonder Woman show up and help him out. Now they have to fight multiple Amazos through out the city. Once they they're done they capture Luthor and send him off to prison but not before Luthor calls 3 people called Slade Wilson, Vandal Savage and Ares to initiate the "Phase 1".
P.S. Sorry for the super long answer
