Trivia

Though the film closely follows the original comic book storyline re-introducing the Supergirl character, there are three scenes omitted from the film. The first depicts a battle between Batman and Artemis, which occurs in the park when the Amazons attempt to kidnap Kara from Superman. In the battle Artemis is close to winning a hand-to-hand fight with Batman. Before being defeated Batman resorts to using a dart gun on Artemis in order to gain the upper hand. The second scene that is skipped is the fight between SPOILER: Superman and Supergirl. In this fight instead of using a 'clap' sound wave attack Superman takes a Kryptonite ring out of his belt buckle and puts it on to harm Kara, although harming himself in the process. The third omitted scene depicts Wonder Woman as being involved in defending Kara from Darkseid on the Kent farm near the end of the film. Instead of Darksied being sent into space, in the original comic he is duped into believing his Omega Beams had destroyed Kara and Superman fights with him while dragging Darkseid through space in anger before trapping Darkseid in the source wall which is located at the end of the universe.

In the final battle, Darkseid Omega Beams Kara into unconsciousness. As he leaves her, she's lying face-up. But when Superman sees her, she's lying face-down. See more »

Quotes

Batman: Does any of this fill in your memory lapses?
Kara: Some. I know that's my Uncle Jor-El and my Aunt Lara.
Batman: Because Superman, Kal-El, told you.
Kara: No. Because I remember. Uncle Jor-El was like my father. They both believed the planet was doomed which is why my father also built a ship. He told me the navigation system was locked onto Earth and that he and my mother would soon follow. I was just about out when I saw them die, right before my eyes. And then there was that light, that awful, blistering light....

Wonderful, one of the best DC movies
1 September 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I love animation and greatly enjoy superhero movies. I found Superman/Batman: Apocalypse to be one of the best DC movies. There is very little that I found particularly wrong with it actually, though Andre Braugher for my tastes wasn't menacing enough as DarkSeid. Kevin Conroy, Tim Daly and Susan Eisenberg however are the embodiment of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman though, while Summer Glau is a nice surprise and Edward Asner is great fun as Granny Goodness. The characters are likable and are developed well, while the animation is full of lavish and atmospheric detail in background, character design and colour and the music is hauntingly rousing. The writing is razor sharp and intelligent and the story has exciting action, affecting drama and compelling storytelling in general, even if a tad rushed towards the end. All in all, has much to love about it. 9/10 Bethany Cox
