But yeah, if they'd just leave Superman dead and buried, comics, TV and movies, I'd be a happy person because this one was a stinker in a long line of invulnerable mediocrity.
NONE OF IT MADE ANY SENSE.
- It was edited with a blender, stretched out to breaking point, then blended again.
- Inconsistencies. Superman keeps saving Lois in a split second but his mum gets left hanging? "I thought she was with you" You emailed her those DC trailers, you dummy.
- Hypocrisy. Our two "heroes" stop killing people just long enough to work on killing the other guy for being a killer.
- Motivations. What the fuck were Lex's motive and plan? Nobody has a problem with Batman's 1% chance bullshit?
- The utter pointlessness of key points. Superman was clumsily framed TWICE (Lexcorp-unique bullets? Really?) then absolved of any wrongdoing moments later. In fact the whole court scene has no reason to exist.
- That dream within a dream. Dumb idea all by itself but it gets even worse in context. Flash can run so fast he can go back in time INTO A DREAM?
- The massive leaps. Alien goo + alien corpse + human blood = alien supertroll. Mutual hatred + lame coincidence = BFFs.
- I have lost count of the number of times Lois has been a convenient plot device over the course of only two movies.
- SO. FUCKING. DOUR.
And note that I didn't even mention characterisations (hint: they were bad), or how they blew their wad too early, leaving major elements feeling wasted or unearned.
I think the most egregious thing BvS did was having Superman climb into the tub boot-first. It still bugs me to this day.
