Trivia

The film was originally scheduled for release in 2015, but it was moved to 2016 to "allow the filmmakers time to realize fully their vision, given the complex visual nature of the story." See more »

Goofs

When Bruce is frantically trying to drive from the shoreline helipad to Wayne Enterprises, he is forced to turn right when three cars pile up in front of him at an intersection that has a Jimmy John's restaurant on one corner. Bruce goes half a block before a fireball from an explosion forces him to turn left into an alley. He then turns left through a parking lot and then right on the street he was originally on before the three-car pileup cut him off. He then continues driving straight (with maybe one right turn) for at least ten blocks, but when he stops and gets out of the car and runs only one block over, he is back at the intersection with the Jimmy John's. Also, the three cars that crashed together a moment earlier are not there and there is no smoke or charred buildings from the fireball that just rolled through. Then Bruce looks up the street (past the exit from the parking lot he recently cut through) to watch the Wayne Enterprises building get cut up by the Kryptonian beams. This scene reveals that the Wayne Enterprises building was only two blocks from the Jimmy John's, so the extra ten blocks or so of driving makes no sense at all. See more »

Quotes

Batman: There was a time above... a time before... there were perfect things... diamond absolutes. But things fall... things on earth. And what falls... is fallen. In the dream, it took me to the light. A beautiful lie.

the best CBM ever
16 May 2018 | by poopopiSee all my reviews

Best comicbook movie ever, plus great picture, soundtrack, have watched over 70+ times and still not boring. Really love that we have this kind of movie in nerd culture. Seems like director and actors really love comic, I can feel the chemistry between them. Wishing we have this kind of CBM in the future
