Batman v. Superman is all that is wrong with the DCEU. It cobbles together multiple comic plots to create a jumbled mess. Superman is resorted to being a broody protagonist, who actually is not featured much in the film. Lex Luthor is horribly mischaracterized. The one shining highlight of the film is Ben Affleck as Batman. He creates an interesting interpretation of Batman that is older and weathered by the world of crime. Batman v. Superman overall is a disappointing feat that is more interested in setting up the DCEU to catch up with Marvel, than to create a good Batman v Superman film.
