2016: The year Gregg Katzman spent way too much time thinking about BvS

2016: The year Gregg Katzman spent way too much time thinking about BvS

Movies play a huge role in my life. I remember being afraid as I watched the first ant scene in Honey, I Shrunk The Kids when I was just four years old, and I remember the excitement of watching the Ninja Turtles take on the Foot Clan when I was six. Whether a film turns out to be a personal favorite or a disappointment, it has the potential to stick with you for the rest of your life. After all, you’re dedicating around an hour and a half to two hours or so of your time to focus solely on a single story. It has your complete attention and you’re investing time in it – not only the time you spend watching the movie, but often the countless hours you’ll spend thinking about it afterwards. One of the worst things a movie can be is forgettable. Love or hate it, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is by no means forgettable. Now that we’re in 2017, I want to share just how much my thoughts have evolved on one of 2016’s biggest comic book movies.

WB and DC are still in the early stages of crafting their own cinematic universe. At the time of this writing, there are only two films in the shared universe (Man of SteelBatman v Superman) and the third film, David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, is just months away. Beyond that, several movies have been announced all the way through 2020, but obviously, plans can change. Now, it’s looking like one of the stars of Suicide Squad could get her very own movie… and she could be sharing the spotlight with some friends!

Batman v Superman

Review by Gregg Katzman

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The plot is pretty much in the title, isn’t it? We all know the Dark Knight (Ben Affleck) and the Man of Steel (Henry Cavill) will be at odds, but at least two Justice League movies have been announced, so we’re also pretty sure they’ll end up on the same side – it’s all in one of the trailers, after all. Anyone who has read a comic has seen the “heroes battle until they join forces” scenario countless times before. Does knowing that really matter, though? To some, it will. But to me, that isn’t what’s important. I don’t really care about “who will win?” I’m not on “team Batman” or “team Superman”. I’m here to see Warner Bros. and DC Comics give fans what they’ve craved for so long: a cinematic universe that’s full of familiar faces, both good and bad.  Seeing how everything actually plays out and how these characters are handled is far more important than strongly suspecting that they’ll end up as friends, or at least allies. Is their conflict forced or does it feel justified? Does the eventual team-up feel like a natural development, or is it there just to blatantly get us ready for Justice League movies? I’d say those are a few of the things that really matter. Besides, we’re all on team Wonder Woman, right?
