Trivia

Goofs

The prison guard instructs Lex to turn and face the wall, then place his forehead against the wall, "so I can come in and restrain you". A guard would never enter the cell of an unrestrained prisoner in this fashion. The prisoner would be required to place their hands through the aperture in the cell door to be handcuffed before the door was opened. It is possible that this instruction is a setup for Batman's arrival, but Lex would have almost certainly been suspicious of the breach in protocol by the guard. See more »

Quotes

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.

I'm sad.
25 March 2016 | by mlucky-34269See all my reviews

Being a huge DC fan, I was hoping for a movie that would bring us a Universe that was equal or better than the MCU. I guess not. Poor storytelling just killed this movie. We deserve better. I hope this doesn't stall things..Only time will tell.

The cameos were cool, Affleck killed it as Batman, and Wonder Woman was solid.

Overall though, the movie was one big advertisement for things to come, which did not work with Marvel's Age of Ultron, and you would think that with an extra year that Synder would have taken a look at that and made some changes.
