The Early 'Batman v Superman' Reviews Are Discouraging, and Unfair?

23 March 2016 6:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Why so serious? That seems to be a major complaint from critics who just saw "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" before its March 25 wide release. But, hey, at least they liked Wonder Woman!

The long-awaited showdown between Ben Affleck's Batman and Henry Cavill's Superman has not been embraced by many critics, so far. As of Wednesday morning (March 23) it has only a 40 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. However, only 62 reviews have been posted at this point, so there's time for a comeback.

Most of the reviews are mixed, whether labeled fresh or rotten. The length and somber tone were singled out in several critiques, as if every superhero movie now needs to be a non-stop one-liner comedy showcase like "Avengers," "Guardians of the Galaxy," and "Deadpool." You can find comparisons to Marvel movies in a few critiques, which seems a bit unfair -- we don't need DC to copy Marvel's formula, »
