Seven Shades of Batman
Batman vs. Superman Dawn of Justice (2016, USA) recognizes reality: superhero ‘good guys’ do have conflicts, even though they are on the same side of good and right.
There is still something troubling about Batman versus Superman. To me, Batman and Superman’s duel in Batman vs. Superman Dawn of Justice seems unwarranted as they are both on the ‘good side’.
For movie audiences, Batman and Superman are still etched on their minds as on the ‘same side’ (read: on the side of good and right).
Apparently, the new movie takes that into consideration.
Though in Batman vs. Superman we are curious to see which of these superheroes will win.
Their separate identities have been defined for a generation of moviegoers.There have been seven Batman feature films. The former three movies were the more complex and interesting, but a Batman feature film ‘circuit’ began in 1989.
