Had the biggest opening weekend gross of any DC Comics film ($166 million), but also had the biggest second weekend drop of any DC Comics film (69.1%). See more »

Goofs

When Bruce Wayne watches the video footage of meta humans, the one with Diana takes place in Paris, France. The footage shows a date in the upper left corner. The date says "22 juin 2015, 10:13AM". If "22 juin 2015" is french, "10:13AM" is pure english. In french, the hour would simply be "10:13" (as the evening time would be "22:13"). See more »

User Reviews

 
Watch the extended version! It's awesome!
6 May 2020 | by jared-25331See all my reviews

This film was amazing. Ben Affleck was easily the best part of this movie, he brought his a-game as Batman. The chemistry between Affleck & Irons was outstanding. Gal Gadot did a great job as Wonder Woman. The fight between Batman & Superman was awesome. The final fight with Doomsday was outstanding in every way possible. However, there is only one problem with this film and that's Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. He was sadly missed cast in this role, but then again it's really the fault of Warner Bros. Studios. Overall, this film deliver on almost every level. I highly recommend that you watch the extended version of this film.
