Trivia

At the beginning of the movie, when young Bruce Wayne runs from his parents' graves, he and the camera pass a tombstone with the name Solomon Grundy, a villain in the comics. See more »

Goofs

Batman and Superman are not friends in this, therefore Batman leaving the "cowl gap" in his armor makes no sense. In the comic book source novel for the film, Superman would not have struck Batman in the head or face because he had no desire to seriously injure or kill him due to their perceived friendship. The film itself, however, gives no reason for believing that this would not occur. While Superman isn't necessarily a murderer it showed one instance where he killed another who was simply threatening someone. Batman had no reason to believe that he wouldn't do the same to him and as such no reason to expose any part of his head to attack. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Batman: There was a time above... a time before... there were perfect things... diamond absolutes. But things fall... things on earth. And what falls... is fallen. In the dream, it took me to the light. A beautiful lie.

Hate it as much as you want, the movie is a GEM by Zack Snyder
20 November 2017 | by theaxnSee all my reviews

Its shame to see what critics and marvel fans did to this movie and targeted Zack Snyder for it. I have seen this movie more than 25 times till date. And i enjoy this movie as much as i enjoyed the first time.

The fans who have read DC comics, wouldn't be disappointed in this movie.

Its dark movie, yes it is. Because the title shows the intense situation at hand. Two superheroes about to rip each other apart for whatever reasons that brought them to this stage. Yes it had to be dark and intense.

Only marvel can be stupid enough to show an alien invasion where humans are loosing the battle and the super heroes are cracking jokes while battles as if they are playing ping pong. a person playing Call of Duty game is more serious while playing than the marvel heroes fighting aliens.
