Thanks to the leak a few days ago, WB was forced to reveal their hand early before their big planned event in theaters. Everyone has opinions about this, and most of the Flixist staff here really didn’t like its overtly dark tone. Visually, it’s stunning. That shot of the statue is magnificent. I’m digging the new Batman suits. But for the most part, this whole thing is way too stylish for my taste.
It reminds me more of Sucker Punch (which was indeed a cinematic sucker punch to the gut) than a Superman movie. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice releases March 25th next year.
