Ye Gods, DC. We were worried that maybe you wouldn’t be able to follow in the footsteps of what Marvel has done, that maybe this was going to be a giant mess that would still be pretty to look at, but this? This looks fantastic:
Even Batffleck looks great.
No, better than that – most actors have pulled off either Bruce Wayne or Batman, but not both. The best of the lot was Bale, but the infamous voice was kind of a detraction; this, however, even sounds good. It looks like Ben was serious about making up for Daredevil, so good on him. I was worried about a lot of things going into this, but the trailer has sold me on his Batman, and I’m intrigued to see how this plays out.
Superman, of course, looks great and appears to have been doing good works around the world since the original Man of Steel. The good works in question even look like they might be worldwide, which is a great thing; the entire point of Superman is that he is a god living to the best of humanity, regardless of nation. That’s awesome.
Lex looks great, Zod becoming Doomsday was a nice surprise, and Wonder Woman looks god-like – that shot of the three of them getting ready to wreck Doomsday? That would’ve sold me the ticket right there. That’s the most impressive the DC Comics Trinity has looked in a very long time.
There’s less to say about Dawn of Justice than there is about Civil War because there’s less to draw on, but this looks like a hell of a good gateway into a larger DC Cinematic Universe.
If there was any doubt before, consider is squashed. This looks awesome and we’ll be going to check it out, too.
