Possible First SPOILER Filled Reaction To BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE
Obviously you should be taking the following with that ever-ready grain of salt, but a Reddit user claims to have been invited to a test screening of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice last night and has wasted no time in posting the details. Possible huge SPOILERS ahead...
Here's the thing about Reddit: anyone can use it and claim to be someone else, and basically lie through their teeth of they're so inclined. For that reason you probably shouldn't put too much stock in what people post there - though in this instance, at least, Mr. ViolatingNDA has provided proof that he was indeed invited to a secret screening of a Warner Bros. movie.
Still far from irrefutable evidence of course, but it does allow us to take his claims a tad more seriously. So, if you want to know some of the things that go down in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice (maybe), read on with another MAJOR SPOILER warning.
“Hey DC_Cinematic, i’m using a throwaway account for obvious reasons, but I saw the movie last night! I use a website for advance screenings and I got tickets for a mystery film and it turned out to be BvS. The movie was very long, as long as TFA if I were to make a comparison. It didn’t drag though; every minute of the film was used effectively.
Performances were all great. Jesse Eisenberg as Lex is way more complex than what the trailers show. By the end of the film, you will HATE him, but at the same time, you can’t help admire how capable this guy is. Ben Affleck as Bruce/Batman is definitely the standout performance. I was surprised/scared how different he became when he put the mask on. This Batman will come across as a villain to some viewers; he enjoys inflicting pain on criminals. There was a scene where he was branding a criminal, and he had the biggest smile on his face. I don’t know how fans will react to that, but I felt it worked with this version of the character.
Everyone else was great too, even the new supporting characters played by Jena Malone and Scoot McNairy. Jena Malone plays a crippled Barbara Gordon. She doesn’t have much screentime, but she does make a Killing Joke reference about an amusement park incident involving her now retired father. Scoot is playing Jimmy Olsen who was injured during the events of Man of Steel. He does not blame Superman like the others, but supports him and views him as a hero. He has a popular blog about Superman.
The third act was mindblowing. The Doomsday reveal in the trailer is just the tip of the iceberg. There is a lot of action, and I loved every moment of it. The first and second acts are the “Batman v Superman” parts of the movie, while the third act is entirely “Dawn of Justice.” You will see a fully assembled Justice League by the end of the film.
All in all, BvS is the greatest comic book movie since The Dark Knight, and I can’t wait to see it again come March. If anyone has questions, i’ll be glad to answer.”
The biggest (potential) reveals here are the full assembly of the Justice League, and the identity of Jena Malone's character - but again, this could all be completely made up so let's wait and see before getting too excited/disappointed. Assuming for a second that it is on the level though, what do you think?
