Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

September 4, 2016

"It's okay, I'm a friend of your son's. --I figured. The cape." --Batman & Martha Kent This week on THE SCRIPT David Negrin and Alec Pollak analyze the sequel to Man of Steel, the prequel to Justice League: Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. How is the "Two Marthas" backstory written as ingenious character development? Is there an inherent plot weakness in the beef between Batman and Superman? While Wonder Woman's 7 minutes on screen is pretty kick-ass, does it pass the Bechdel Test? And our comic book expert Alec BLOWS my mind by decoding the relevance of the "Dark Knight Returns" & "Superman Injustice" graphic novel references. [SPOILER WARNING]
