What moments in this film just made you think "WTF?" Considering this film is getting primarily negative viewers, its almost certain that everyone experienced at least one.

Also, please don't just say the entire film.

I literally said "WTF" when Batman started killing people.

When the bats lifted lil Wayne out of the cave.

^^ And of course, when Batman almost killed Superman. I think they should let Supes hold his own and maybe be even with Batman in the fight, yet let the Bat still win. The WTF moment for me was also the explosion of the capital. I knew about this [I'm dumb af so I've read the complete spoiler review... :D], but I still was like "WHAT?". I really like the movie and I'm so looking forward to the Ultimate Edition.

I literally was like "this movie is ruined". But then I saw it was a dream and me and my gf were like "phew ok the movie is saved"

When Batman was fighting those goons at the docks to get to the Kryponite, but he doesn't get it. Two scenes later, it is revealed that Batman stole the Kryptonite off-screen in a different location. Like what was the point of the fight?

Anyone remember that scene where Batman was like, in the top corner of the room in plain sight and no Cop was capable of seeing him? Like wtf he's big and can you not see him?

I was laughing my ass off. The Doomsday scene where Batman said "Oh sh!t" isn't a WTF moment, but it's funny as well.

"WTF, are they really doing a Death of Superman story after TWO movies?"

"WTF is Batman seriously about to kill Superman via kryptonite spear???"

People upset Batman was killing people but he killed people in the Nolan trilogy too. Just not as intentionally....heh

Bruce flying thanks to bats..only dream that did further the plot for future movies.

Batman marks sex offenders..that's why it's a death sentence in jail

Batman killed KGBeast. Nod to DK...guy going back for the bomb and car dragging probably did kill people

Batman is crazy about his parents hearing someone who he was going to kill say his mother name should pause him. In this moment Lois explain it's his mother name. Bats been calling Superman an alien this entire time. Having a mother humanize anyone.

Lex was an abused child. As one of the smartest and richest men in the world he only feels like his once abused child self in the presence of the all powerful Superman. I guess he could have played it straight face and only showed his crazy side when his plans are failing.

Mutant Bugs are cleary a Darkseid nod to a possible future. Casual movie goers probably wouldn't have got it. But it sets up other movies without an end credit scene. Instead throughout the movie..I give you that might be too much to digest

Flash is setting up Infinite Crisis.

Idk if WW can fly..hopefully no invisible plane. But yea she never showed she can fly.

Bats straight up killing people, the Flash message, and Jimmy dying within five minutes of screen time.

Lex's point if he wanted Batman to kill Superman and if Batman did kill him, there would be no reason to create Doomsday yet he would of been released anyways.

When young Bruce was flying i was WTFed. And thinking about it later, simply showing him standing and looking at the bats that fly around him then go higher would be enough. Maybe Zack did it to show how Superman effected Batman's mind though.

Lois throwing away a spear was strange, girl what the **** are you doing O_o Why not just wrap it up in some piece of cloth and take the only thing that can surely kill your loved one somewhere private? They could simply make Batman throwing spear there, sure they needed to move Superman in the spot closer so that it would look natural but its not like it was a must place for Batman to throw away spinning Superman.

One for me is when Bruce is walking through the ruins of the Wayne Industries tower and a horse walks by. If that was metaphorical or symbolic of something then it flew right over my head.

There were some scenes that did not make too much sense to me, but again, I'm not very knowledgeable of that universe so I might be missing the point somewhere. But here are mine:

  • The "was that guy Jimmy Olsen" moment
  • The crazed Lex
  • The Bat branding
  • Superman's ghost dad chat on the mountains
  • Far too many dreams
  • The message in the letters as a call to action
  • The search for the spear

Definitely Pa Kent being an unexplainable hallucination/dream thing.

He was stacking rocks and all I could think was "wtf are yoy doing?"

Flash time travel and dream sequence.

Cyborg.

Batman and his brutal way of doing things.

The way the killer killed Bruce's mom in the FACE.

Batman saying he was a friend of Clark and then telling WW that they have to find the JL members for whatever reason. That didn't make sense to me.

The bomb going off at the hearing. Seeing the buildings fall from MOS and Bruce in the aftermath.

Superman in Space dead from the nuclear bomb and then him actually dying.

The dream sequence the first time I watch, along with the vision/flashback memory nightmare, along with the Flash.

Also ugly doomsday.
