From the pages of IMDB --
"Fearing 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. With Batman and Superman fighting each other, a new threat, Doomsday, is created by Lex Luthor. It's up to Superman and Batman to set aside their differences along with Wonder Woman to stop Lex Luthor and Doomsday from destroying Metropolis."
To me, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice felt like a dream come true. Ever since I saw The Dark Knight and The Man of Steel in cartoon form back in 1997's "World's Finest", I've longed to see their world up on the silver screen, with potential for a Justice League universe, etc. Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have always entertained the idea, but never fully went through with it. Marvel Entertainment has certainly allowed other studios to double down on their comic book properties, so the idea of Warner Bros. finally green lighting their own universe was on the horizon, but I still couldn't believe it to be true. Once I sat in the movie theater on Monday the 21st, at 10:00pm for a 2D IMAX showing, it all happened.
Now, I'm a DC Comics fan, period. There are a few comics from Marvel that I read and a good portion of their movies are great. However, when it comes to DC Comics, I'm all over it. In my opinion, they have the best heroes and the best villains. With Batman v Superman, I got the Batman I always wanted, the Superman I always wanted and the Wonder Woman I always wanted. But instead of writing about it, below you will find a link to my discussion, joined by a group of people who generally felt the same way. Spoilers ahead. Enjoy!
