Batman v Superman is one of the most anticipated movies for us here at the Film Rave in 2016. We’ve always been fans of DC comics and what they’re doing movie-wise through Warner Bros., studios, although that doesn’t mean we don’t like what Marvel is doing – Ant-Man remains our most favourite of Marvel’s superhero movies, and we really love the moves Marvel has made into TV with Daredevil and Jessica Jones.
The inclusion of Wonder Woman makes it no secret that Batman v Superman is setting up the forthcoming Justice League movie, due to hit cinemas in 2017, and of course the Wonder Woman standalone venture, which is also due to hit cinemas in 2017, yet the downer for us was the big reveal in this trailer of The Death of Superman villain, Doomsday.
Although the inclusion of Doomsday kind of kills the anticipation, it does give Snyder and writers Chris Terrio (Argo) and David S. Goyer great versatility to supply Lex Luther (Jesse Eisenberg) a means to kill both Batman and Superman. Still, would have been nice for some of the creatives working on the production to try and come up with a way to destroy Superman that hasn’t been seen before.
Batman v Superman opens nationwide in the UK on 25th March 2016.
