Synopsis: Fearing that the actions of Superman are left unchecked, Batman takes on the Man of Steel, while the world wrestles with what kind of a hero it really needs.

Reaction: Not a bad movie but it really needs to allow itself to have more fun and not be dour and dire all the time.

Personal Rating: 7/10

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • After seeing his performance in Cloud Atlas, the studio wanted Tom Hanks to portray Lex Luthor.
  • Ben Affleck is seventeen months older than Christian Bale, marking the first time the actor taking on the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne is older than the actor who last played the role in a live action movie since the modern movie sequence started in 1989. In all other Batman roles since, the actor succeeding the role has been younger than the actor who previously played the character. Val Kilmer took the role from Michael Keaton and he is eight years younger. George Clooney, who is eighteen months younger, took the role from Kilmer. Bale is thirteen years younger than Clooney. The FIRST (and only OTHER) time this happened was in 1949, when Robert Lowery took over the role from [?] Lewis Wilson, who played Batman in 1943.
  • Superman's name was mentioned multiple times during the movie, Batman's only once by Perry White (most of the time he's only referred to as The Bat), and Wonder Woman's, despite her prominent role, not even once, only her undercover name is mentioned once as Ms. Prince.
  • A rough cut of the film was shown for the executives at Warner Bros. They were reportedly so impressed that they not only gave the film a standing ovation, but also began negotiating a deal with Ben Affleck to have him make three solo Batman movies, rather than the original plan to make only one.
  • In an interview with Jimmy Fallon, Ben Affleck said he was warned by Warner Bros. about the possible negative reaction to his casting, and was advised to remain off the Internet after the casting announcement. He also said to assuage his concerns, the studio showed him negative comments that fans had initially made to previous superhero castings. Affleck said in spite of the studio warnings, he still checked out an online message board. The first comment he read was, "Affleck as Batman? NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!" After seeing that, he immediately went offline. When Jimmy Fallon asked Ben Affleck what his daughters thought of him being Batman, he said, "They don't care. All they want to watch is Frozen."
  • When discussing the film, Henry Cavill said that it would address a major issue that fans and critics had with Man of Steel, involving the huge amount of collateral damage caused in the film's climax during Superman's battle with General Zod in Metropolis. Cavill said that future battle scenes in movies featuring Superman would involve him making sure to not harm civilians himself and to protect them from evil villains.
