Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice was released almost five years ago, and that’s a lot of time to forget about the pros and cons of a movie that is quite complicated and leads straight to the release of this week Zack Snyder’s Justice League. True, the details of the plot turned out not to be very important for the events of the original 2017 Justice League – – Batman V. SupermanSequel – They’re probably worth refreshing your mind before the “Snyder Cut” as the movie will pick up exactly where the previous movie left off.
So here is everything you need to remember that you might have forgotten Dawn of Justice.
As the title suggests, most of them are from Snyder man of Steel Continuation leads to a fight between Batman and Superman. Superman encroaches on a nameless alien land to save Lois Lane, causing great concern that one day he will use his powers for evil. The US government and Bruce Wayne begin to see Superman as a threat to the world, and Wayne decides to take matters into his own hands and defeat the man of steel.
Thanks to Batman’s various devices, he manages to almost kill Superman with a kryptonite spear before the two disregard the fact that their mothers are both Martha. After a very brief conversation, the two discover that Lex Luthor was the real villain the whole time and that he wakes up Doomsday on board Zod’s crashed Kryptonian ship man of Steel – a ship that plays an important role in the expanded version of Justice League.
The two team up with Wonder Woman to stop Doomsday. During the fight, the President of the United States launches an atomic bomb on Judgment Day, which Superman catches and carries into space. He takes the full power of the bomb, but the sun revives him and he returns to battle. Superman takes Batman’s kryptonite spear and stabs Doomsday with it. Doomsday stabs him too, and Superman is weak enough from all the various stings and explosions that Doomsday’s stab proves deadly.
Everyone is in mourning for Superman, there’s a big funeral going on, and in a short post-credits sequence, the dirt begins to rise on his coffin. Maybe he’s not dead?
Batman has Knightmares
While Batman versus SupermanBruce Wayne is plagued by visions of an apocalyptic future. The world seems to be in ruins, Superman is evil and Batman is part of the resistance trying to save the world from an unknown terror.
These so-called “knight mares” never graduate or receive an explanation in Batman versus Supermanand they have been completely removed from the original theatrical release of Justice League. However, they are back and very important in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. While they still don’t get a full explanation in the new movie, they’re very important to Snyder’s plans for the sequels – even if those likely won’t happen.
But Bruce Wayne isn’t the only one with a vision for the future. After resurrecting Doomsday, Lex Luthor, who is still aboard the Kyrpton ship, receives a vision of Steppenwolf who will soon come to earth to claim the three mother crates. This is essentially a preview of the plot of Justice Leagueand a good reminder that Lex knew what was coming all along.
In a scene that happens in Bruce Wayne’s makeshift bat cave, lightning travels through time to give Bruce a message from the future, asking him to find “the others.” Bruce realizes that he has data on several other meta-humans – The Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman – among the files he stole from Lex Luthor. We get a glimpse of each of these characters when Wayne sends the files to Diana Prince just before he leaves to fight Superman. We don’t get a long look at any of the characters, but it suggests Diana and Bruce are already thinking about teaming up.
