Batman v Superman’s critical failure might save the DC movie universe

Batman v Superman’s critical failure might save the DC movie universe

Despite raking in more than $800 million dollars over the past month and a half, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice still has to be considered a failure on some level for Warner Bros. and DC.

It dipped below 30% on Rotten Tomatoes just days after release and never recovered. It spawned more arguments between DC and Marvel fans than it did thoughtful or entertaining discussion about the future of the DC Extended Universe. In general, it just left a bad taste in the mouth of the general public.

So how could any of this possibly be a good thing?

This is what ‘Batman v Superman’ looked like before they added special effects

Batman v Superman Review Kevin Smith

Even Kevin Smith has trouble finding anything positive to say about Batman v Superman

Even Kevin Smith has trouble finding anything positive to say about Batman v Superman

Kevin Smith has long been one of the most outspoken champions of the comic book industry. He reads comics, he writes comics and he spends hours every week talking about comics on his various podcasts. He’s also an almost overwhelmingly positive force, finding something to love about any comic book movie he sees.

At least, that was the case, until he saw Batman v Superman. More →

Are critics completely useless? ‘Batman v Superman’ just had one of the biggest openings in history

Are critics completely useless? ‘Batman v Superman’ just had one of the biggest openings in history

Did the world lose the last film critic who actually mattered when Roger Ebert passed away almost exactly three years ago in April 2013? I can recall reading Ebert’s reviews ahead of movie debuts a number of times and basing my decision of whether or not to see a new movie in part on his assessment. Now, I can’t speak for everyone, but there isn’t a single film critic out there today whose opinion I value enough to make the same claim about. Or perhaps I can speak for everyone… if this weekend’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice premiere is any indication. More →

Explore Bruce Wayne’s house and the Batcave with this awesome Google Maps Easter egg

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hasn’t exactly been on the receiving end of glowing reviews. It’s seemingly been panned by critics and currently sports a 30% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. In stark contrast, the whimsical and action-packed Deadpool sports a healthy 84% rating.

Nonetheless, it’s a safe bet that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will do reasonably well at the box office, thanks in no small part to a concerted marketing push from Warner Bros. On that note, Google decided to get in on the cross promotion action via a nice easter egg on Google Maps which lets users take a 360 degree tour of Bruce Wayne’s swanky condo and even the hallowed Batcave.

Critics hate ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’

Critics hate ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’

“Lukewarm” would be a charitable way to describe the reaction to Man of Steel. Comic book fans and general audiences alike were turned off by Zack Snyder’s dark, gritty take on Superman in 2013, so you might not be surprised to learn that it looks like they feel the same way about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

No one is altogether confident about how the movie will turn out, but that hasn’t stopped Warner Bros. from pumping out a new trailer or TV spot every week or so.

Watch: Latest ‘Batman v. Superman’ TV ads include exciting new footage

In case you missed it, there are two new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice TV ads floating around that should get fans of the upcoming film even more pumped up ahead of its March 25 release.

The first ad begins with Batman (played by Ben Affleck) driving the Batmobile into Superman (played by Henry Cavill). Of course, even the armored Batmobile is no match for the Man of Steel as the vehicle quickly careens off of him.
