When considering the worst thing about BATMAN vs. SUPERMAN, the film gives viewers an embarrassment of riches to choose from. However, aside from the terribly unfortunate casting of Lex Luthor, the vast majority of the film’s ills could be mitigated or resolved by fixing one thing: the screenplay.

However, after seeing the hot mess Zach Snyder made of this film, I don’t think that fans are going to be eager for a JUSTICE LEAGUE outing that he is helming. I know that I am not. While DC has done itself proud with its small-screen offerings: ARROW, FLASH, CONSTANTINE, and LUCIFER (I guess one could count SUPERGIRL and LEGENDS OF TOMORROW, but I’ve not been watching them.), their big-screen adaptations have been more uneven. With Marvel and the MCU being the gold standard in terms of superhero films, DC has to step up its game to compete with the Marvel powerhouse, and BATMAN vs. SUPERMAN was NOT the film they wanted to be the launch pad for their own DC Universe film line.
