    Batman v Superman

    Batman v Superman starts tomorrow night, what are people thinking?

    151 minutes duration ... better get a comfortable seat and skip the large Coke.

    Personally, wasn't a big fan of the most recent Superman movie. Like many, I will be comparing this to the Nolan trilogy which, imho, was very good.

    Predictions?

    I expect it will be approximately 1/3 Batman and Superman fighting, 1/3 of them getting to know each other and 1/3 fighting the other villains - all ending on an appropriate cliff hanger introducing some other DC comic based movie

    Interesting tidbit from the wiki page:

    An Ultimate Edition of the film featuring extended content will be released on home media. The version received an R-rating from the Motion Picture Association of America, for more violence than the PG-13 rated theatrical cut,[36][132] and will be 30 minutes longer than the theatrical version

    Really not fussed about it, the trailer gave away most of the likely plot and Man of Steel was just dull.

    Probably wait for the plane for this one.

    I don't get it. Is it something like Predator vs Alien?

    Well you got the alien part right

    Basically it's two superheroes fighting each other until they realise they have to work together to defeat the evil villain. Classic comic book stuff.

    "Superhero-ed Out" is what I'm thinking.

    Just way too many superhero movies recently. Captain America: Civil War, AKA "Captain America v Iron Man" is also coming out soon. Then Suicide Squad with another new Joker. Then another Spiderman reboot next year.

    And it's all the same standard three-act plot. Hollywood is regurgitating this stuff out faster than Samsung can pump out their S-line phones.

    Needless to say, I won't be watching this.

    I'm confused too, I thought they were both American good guys saving the world? Sounds shite to be honest.

    In a nutshell

    Superman destroys one of Bruce Wayne's towers when fighting General Zod in the last superman movie.

    So understandably Wayne is mighty peeved at the loss of lives etc and wants superman to be held accountable

    No insurance eh? typical batman.

    As GeoTommy said above, Superhero'ed out... That's how I feel

    Thing is, I've always been a Batman fan, so this film is pulling at me from that string...
    But then, $230pp for IMAX isn't to be sneezed at either... decisions .. decisions ...!
