Hello and welcome to episode 10 of DC Movies Podcast. It’s been a long time coming, but one of the most anticipated comic book movies of all time was finally released in North American theaters on March 25, 2016 – Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. On this episode, your hosts, Chris Doucher, Rose Moore and Tony Kim are joined by our friend and former co-host Gregg Katzman, to give you their review of this box-office smash hit – well, a hit as it relates to profits, that is. Long story short: many people disliked or even hated it, whereas others liked and even loved the film. It was nerd versus nerd at the intersection of Twitter St. and Facebook Ave. And we took a page from Zack Snyder’s book, and are happy to give you a special extended cut in our two-hour epic review. Enjoy it, and then come yell at us or praise us on Twitter.
Official Batman v Superman synopsis:
“Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
Directed by Zack Snyder, the film also stars Oscar nominees Amy Adams (“American Hustle,” “Man of Steel”) as Lois Lane, Jesse Eisenberg (“The Social Network”) as Lex Luthor, Diane Lane (“Unfaithful,” “Man of Steel”) as Martha Kent, and Laurence Fishburne (“What’s Love Got to Do with It,” “Man of Steel”) as Perry White; Oscar winners Jeremy Irons (“Reversal of Fortune”) as Alfred, and Holly Hunter (“The Piano”) as Senator Finch; and Gal Gadot (the “Fast and Furious” films) as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince.
Snyder directed from a screenplay written by Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer, based on characters from DC Comics, including Batman, created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger, and Superman, created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The film is produced by Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder, with Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and David S. Goyer serving as executive producers.
Snyder’s behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Larry Fong (“300,” “Watchmen”) and production designer Patrick Tatopoulos (“300: Rise of an Empire”), and from his “Man of Steel” team, editor David Brenner, costume designer Michael Wilkinson and visual effects supervisor John “DJ” DesJardin. The music is by Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer (“The Lion King,” “Man of Steel”) and Junkie XL (“Mad Max: Fury Road”). “
