It’s become tradition now, to ask the previous incumbent of a role currently being portrayed, just what they thought. Everybody wants to know what Timothy Dalton, or Pierce Brosnan makes of the latest Daniel Craig movie, just like everybody wants to know what Brandon Routh, or Dean Cain think about Henry Cavill.
Well, Dain Cain has given his review of Batman V Superman:Dawn of justice. It contains spoilers.
“My son hated it because Superman died. It made me very happy that he took it so personally and that he has such a strong connection to the character (laughs). The movie obviously was so well made; the effects were incredible. It was too long, though, and I admit, I dozed off a tiny bit, but maybe that’s because I was tired after a lot of traveling. Ben was great as Batman and Henry is a very good Superman. This incarnation is so dark compared to the lightness of the Superman I’ve grown to know and love, as seen in the two versions that I grew up with — Christopher Reeve and myself. That’s the only difference to me. [This movie] inhabits a dark world and Superman is such an alien in that world. Wonder Woman is really easy on the eyes, and I love that they introduced the other guys, the Justice League, because those stories are very cool. I loved how they did that. But I don’t see how you have a Justice League without Superman.”
