The year 2016 is already shaping up to be a promising one for films. For kids, there is a Jungle Book remake coming out, a Harry Potter-related flick, and of course Finding Dory, which many expect will break a record or two. For the sci-fi enthusiast however, 2016 will be a thrill ride. Between Captain America: Civil War, X-Men: Apocalypse, Suicide Squad, Independence Day: Resurgence and of course Rogue One, how can it not be a good year?
The most highly anticipated comic book movie of the year however, is only a few weeks away, and the hype for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has reached a fever pitch. Batman will don his armored suit and equip himself with kryptonite to protect the world from the potential alien menace that is Superman. The movie will likely be massive, and there is a lot that comic book and movie fans have to be excited about when it comes to this gigantic blockbuster. Here’s a look at 15 reasons why Batman v Superman will be awesome.
15 The Trailers
All the promotional material for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been spot on. The first trailer got everyone excited and teased an epic showdown.
14 Cool Batman Gadgets and Vehicles
13 It Will Fix The Problems of Man of Steel
12 Batman’s Backstory
11 Henry Cavill
10 A Bad-A** Alfred
8 Wonder Woman
7 It Sets Up The Justice League
6 Zack Snyder
5 Expanded DC Cinematic Universe
4 The Fighting
This is the year of the superhero battle. Punisher will be facing off against Daredevil on Netflix. Cap and his crew will be fighting against Iron Man and his team of heroes. However, the showdown of the year, and perhaps decade, is Batman taking on Superman.
3 Lex Luthor
There has yet to be a bad on-screen version of Lex Luthor. Gene Hackman paved the way in Superman: The Movie, and Kevin Spacey was one of the only enjoyable things about the forgettable film Superman Returns. Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor is completely different from those incarnations.
2 Comic-Accurate Batman
Batman doesn’t kill. He doesn’t throw bombs at goons and gleefully smile as they explode in the sewer. He doesn’t allow Alfred to just let Vicky Vale in the Batcave. He doesn’t quit being Batman after five years and mope around his mansion because the Joker killed his on-and-off girlfriend.
1 Ben Affleck
Are there any Ben Affleck doubters out there still? If there are, what the heck are they smoking? Affleck has already proved he is one of the best actors working today, but still there was near unanimous hatred of him being cast as The Dark Knight.
Slowly but surely even the most nitpicky fanboys have come around, and now Affleck has proved that he will be perhaps the best Batman of all time merely from what we have seen in the trailers.
