| expectations not met
Superman/Batman-Public Enemies is definitely hard to exceed, but this movie had all the basic essentials to do just that: solid story, wonderwoman, the return of darkseid. The fatal mistake in this endeavour is the artwork: the characters were not convincing(excluding diana). The new Darkseid simply doesn't project the fear and darkness, superman is too pretty(way too young) and bats is not coldblooded enough. Tops for the story, flops for the conception and artwork. I understand that maybe the producers felt the need to reinvent the main characters, but after they blew us away with the Justice League final episode(Destroyer), Batman(Red Hood) and Public Enemies, this was like a return to kindergarten. Great story that totally missed the mark in intensity thanks to the misguided exhuberance of the Artists trying to distinguish themselves, and the producers who totally failed in their professional duties. For the high standard of Batman/Superman, this was really bad artwork, and a great disservice to Darkseid(or whatever the hell that was).

Trivia

Though the film closely follows the original comic book storyline re-introducing the Supergirl character, there are three scenes omitted from the film. The first depicts a battle between Batman and Artemis, which occurs in the park when the Amazons attempt to kidnap Kara from Superman. In the battle Artemis is close to winning a hand-to-hand fight with Batman. Before being defeated Batman resorts to using a dart gun on Artemis in order to gain the upper hand. The second scene that is skipped is the fight between SPOILER: Superman and Supergirl. In this fight instead of using a 'clap' sound wave attack Superman takes a Kryptonite ring out of his belt buckle and puts it on to harm Kara, although harming himself in the process. The third omitted scene depicts Wonder Woman as being involved in defending Kara from Darkseid on the Kent farm near the end of the film. Instead of Darksied being sent into space, in the original comic he is duped into believing his Omega Beams had destroyed Kara and Superman fights with him while dragging Darkseid through space in anger before trapping Darkseid in the source wall which is located at the end of the universe.

Goofs
