Trivia

Batman is only called "Batman" once out loud in this movie, by Perry White ("nobody cares about Clark Kent taking on the Batman). Most of the time he is referred to as "the Bat". However, the writing on the Robin suit in the Batcave also calls him Batman. See more »

Goofs

Pearl necklaces of even moderate quality have a knot placed after each pearl, holding them in place on the strand. When Martha Wayne's pearl necklace is ripped, only one pearl should have come loose. 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.

Amazed, Favourite superhero film of this year.
20 March 2016 | by grahamrobbie49See all my reviews

Once a movie that i was extremely nervous about stepping into, just happened to turn out to be my favorite superhero movie, and probably will for years to come, very interesting aspect of the movie was using the flaws of the first installment of the comic book universe and building upon those mishaps to create a much better - more compelling story, Another aspect that really stood out was the dialogue, which you, the viewer can really tell has been improved, Thanks to Chris Terrio.

Though these aspects of the film were really well done what really pulled me in to the movie was the performances by the the actors, mainly Jesse Eisenberg and Ben Affleck's Performances, they really grabbed your attention through a large amount of the scene's showing really great character development from both, also to add i wasn't expecting much from Gal Gadot, shocking to think, as her performance was fantastic -shocking- also to add she really had some great fight scenes that really hooked me, there wasn't a dull moment through out the hole movie, and also fast paste

The cinematography used in the movie is fantastic, and i believe some of these moment within the film will be with us for some time, Overall can't say anymore great things about this movie, it's left me speechless.
