The Granny's Peach Tea scene. How does the Senator respond to the reveal that Luthor had left her a glass of urine? ''By behaving like someone was pointing a gun at her with from behind that very instant.'' The absurdity of the scene and hilariously convenient timing far outweighed the dramatic reveal and the fact that Luthor is now operating overtly.
** [[spoiler: After Lex blows up the Capitol with Superman in it, the camera zooms in on Superman's face in what is clearly meant to be him showing sadness over what happened. Instead Henry Cavill [[DullSurprise makes Superman look mildly bothered]],]] which brings the scene from "quiet tragedy" to "situation comedy."

* That drop of snot on Luthor's upper lip that is present in his final scene.
* Batman's first appearance in costume looks less chilling and more like he's awkwardly hiding in the corner because there was nothing in the room for him to duck behind, considering he had plenty of time to just leave.
* The "Believe me, I'll do it" line made a lot more sense from its original source (a teenage gang member), but when coming from the mouth of a hardened international criminal, and the counterpart of a super villain that has actually beaten Batman in the past, it makes him seem like an overly insecure idiot, and so it just comes off as ridiculous.
* The fight during the Knightmare sequence could have been badass, but Batman looks so hilariously stiff and stilted thanks to the trench coat and cargo pants. More than one fan has admitted to pretending that he has [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons a sandwich in his hand]] the whole time with how stiff his fighting looks.
