Trivia

Michael Shannon never actually shot any scenes for this film and the production used a rubber dummy for Zod's corpse, he stated, "In the movie there's a large rubber version of my naked body that Lex Luthor is playing with. I was not, the only thing I did for that is I did some ADR of some lines that Zack [Snyder] thought he might use in the movie of my disembodied spirit talking to Lex Luthor." See more »

Goofs

When Superman and Batman are fighting, Batman releases a smoke bomb. Superman could use his X-ray vision to follow Batman's movements, but he looks surprised when he goes through the smoke and Batman is gone. In fact, these bombs contain lead which disrupts Superman's vision. When Batman is preparing his bombs in the Batcave, a chemical formula is written on each bomb, the letters "Pb" are present (symbol of lead). 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.

Good but could have been Great
25 March 2016 | by hjrock-03001See all my reviews

There aren't any flaws in the movie it's just there was no time and they have to squeeze all of these many stories together .If the movie had been divided into two parts then it would have been better . Batman had less action scenes then expected (or the action was so great the we wanted more of it),hopefully we would see more of it in the director's cut of the movie.I see the the negative reviews and I get it why critics don't like the movie(too dark,no humor.bad writing,etc)but its a good frickin movie,i just hope they do a better job in the coming movies. I am happy because this was not like any marvel movie ,it was completely different and as the fan of both the universes I will get to see totally different types of live action movie of these universes
