Huddle up gang because I have something all you crazies have been craving for past three years. Yes, guys its almost that time, BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE is about to hit theaters and we couldn't be more excited. Yeah... yeah, I know it's still a month or so till the movie comes out but I just cant help myself anymore. WB has teased us for almost a year and a half with unbelivably amazing trailers and this wait has been nothing but down right brutal on all fans. Now yes, Deadpool was brilliant, and Kudos to Marvel for redefining super hero movies for us. And yes, Captain America: Civil War will be great too and so will be X-Men and Suicide Squad and all. But none of these movies doesn't even come close to this giant of a movie. Its sheer gravity and calibre is so unwavering that none can escape. Fans have been going crazy ever since Warner Brothers green lit the movie and the excitement is even more because Zack Snyder is directing it.
But there has been a lot of rumors related to this flick, and that's understandable because there is SUPERMAN and BATMAN and WONDER WOMAN in just one movie!!!! People are bound to ponder over how Zack Snyder has fabricated this monster of a movie together. A lot of fan theroies and bizzare explanations have been on the net about, why batman holds a vendetta over superman? how does wonder woman fits into all this? and what the hell is Lex's problem? and what in god's name is he doing with General Zod's corpse? and wait, was that?-- yes Doomsday is also in this movie, but how? how I ask you!! Three trailers were no help either, each one of them indicated something different. So as of now, all we are doing is guessing.
While no one can argue that this is the most anticipated movie of the year and there is possibly only one way that this movie can not be a hit, that is if they dont release it at all, but still we have to wait for almost a month to be able to watch it! That's just cruel. But for the time being, here are few facts you need to know before you lot charge into the theaters.
The first thing you need to know about this movie is that it has been written using Frank Miller's comic 'The Dark Knight Returns' as a guideline. Now there will be similarities between the comic and this movie but what remains to be seen is how much closer to the comic is Zack and writer Chris Terrio are willing to go?
Where Marvel likes to place its stories in real world cities, DC has its own world creating habits. Gotham City, Metropolis, Starling City and so on. Now in comics and TV series as well, Gotham and Metropolis were far away from each other. But in this movie, Zack Snyder altered this fact and decided to place both these cities in each other's proximity. It was done to link the connection between Superman's heroic and still vastly destructive accomplishment of stopping General Zod and Bruce's problem with him. Evidently, when Zod and Clarke fought, they somehow entered into the Gotham and there they destructed one of Wayne's building, killing few more of his already thin family.
Unlike Nolan's Batman, Snyder and the makers have decided to age our fearless caped crusader. According to the net, Bruce is somewhere in his late forties in the movie. He has already faced joker and have had few significant setbacks when it comes to emotional scale and thus, he carries a lot of baggage.
As I have mentioned, Batman is old. And up to this time in his life, he already had few sidekicks,'Robin'. In comics, quite a few youngsters stepped into robin's boots and followed the knight on his crusade to free the city of Gotham from crime. But unfortunately, somehow they died. And blame almost all the time, fell on Bats. As you can see in this snapshot from the trailer, someone is mocking Batman, and that might act as a catalytic factor in pushing him on the war path against Superman. Even though there has been no confirmation that if there is going to be a Robin in the movie or not.r But sources confirm that 'Jena Malone' has been spotted on the sets quite a few times with red hair-do of that of 'Carrie Kelly', one of Bats female sidekick. Now who was behind all this, this little message; it remains to be seen, but as far as the rumors go, its Joker.
Aquaman was one of the founding members of Justice League, and since it has already been confirmed that Jason Momoa will be playing Aquaman and he will be seen in the movie alongside flash, but only in cameos. Yes till now only this has been confirmed by the makers. When the teaser was launched, at that time, makers made it very clear that this movie marks the beginning of Justice League, and then in 2014 , WB released its slate of DC universe movies till 2020, including two Justice League movies and a stand alone Aquaman movie. So it is only logical to believe that since Aquaman was one of the core members of Justice League, he will be playing an important role.
Okay before I ramble on, I just want to say, 'She Looks Super HAWWTT!!!!'. Okay now that I have got that out of my system, lets focus on Gal Gadot A.K.A. The Wonder Woman. Before the second trailer was released, there were rumors that she will be only doing a cameo, but now Snyder has made it clear that her role in this movie is PIVOTAL! That is she will be directing the movie in the direction of Justice League. But still, how she fits in this movie, it will be interesting to see, and more than that, it will be really interesting to see Gal play Diana Prince.
Now this was really unexpected. After watching the second trailer, we all were baffled for few seconds. This dude, DOOMSDAY! The only character who can go toe to toe with Superman, strength wise, and the character who actually killed Superman in comics! Now in comics, Doomsday was an ancient creature, made artificially by a mad scientist who wanted to create an unbeatable warrior and ended up with this ugly looking mug. Now the makers have decided to deviate from the comics and turn Zod into Doomsday, and that too by the hands of Lex Luthor. It is going to be a though one to win for the caped duo.
When Christian Bale rejected to revive his Batman character without Christopher Nolan in director's seat, WB decided to get a completely new team for Batman based characters. Thus, the role of the Knight's ever faithful and loyal butler went from Michael Cain to Jeremy Irons. Will Gary Oldman will step into Commissioner Gordon's boots that remain to be seen.
I guess by now you all have heard this already, but just want to make sure that there is no doubt in anybody's mind. This is not a sequel to Man Of Steel. We mistook it so before, but were told by Snyder that this movie is a completely different entity on its own. According to Zack, Batman and Superman both will be having stand alone movies in future. Even though that was not shown anywhere in the calender released by the studio.
Jesse Eisenberg will be seen as Lex Luthor. Now in trailers, we have seen him with and without hair. So I really don't know what to make out of it, but he clearly is the brains behind turning Zod into Doomsday.
