Batman vs Superman was a disappointment. The best part of the movie was the trailer for Captain America: Civil War. The movie was dull, retelling again the Batman origin story. It took forever to get anywhere. The character motivations were unclear. Why was Batman so angry, and Superman such a sad sack? Even worse than that, was the fact that the entire movie took place in the dark and the action scenes were so close-up that you couldn’t even follow it. I’m not even sure what the bat mobile looked like.
By contrast, I just rewatched Captain America: The Winter Soldier. That movie was cool, fun, humorous, and took place in daylight. The audience could actually see the action. There’s definitely a huge difference in tone between the Marvel movies, that took seemingly dull characters like Cap and Thor and made good movies, and the joyless Dawn of Justice. If they can’t make Batman and Superman interesting, I’m not sure there’s much hope for Aquaman.
