What Batman vs Superman should have been
10 August 2019 | by rjones-38816See all my reviews

This hit every mark. An epic movie that the Batman vs Superman movie just couldnt capture. The story was bindspelling, intense, & exciting. Part 1 lead perfectly into part 2. The actors played their parts perfectly. The complicated relationship with Superman & Batman was told perfectly but carefully. What a masterpiece. I wish they could have told a better story of the live action movie and did better casting. Ben Affleck was trying to play Bruce Wayne/Batman instead of becoming him. And Jesse Eisenberg was very underwhelming as Lex, it was hard to take him serious as a bad guy. Definitely see this movie part 1 & 2 if you get a chance, especially if you are a DC fan.
