* CounterpartComparison:
** Lex Luthor in this movie actually shares a lot of similarities with Varrick from ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra''. Both of them are eccentric businessmen who make deals with a major female character for what seems like an important reason, but is only for personal gain, both of them blow up an important building at some point, both of them have an Asian female assistant that is always cooperative and wears glasses, and [[spoiler: both are imprisoned at the end of their respective first appearances, though Varrick escaped]]. On the other hand, Varrick never killed anybody or acted like he was intellectually superior to those that he faced, and he also [[spoiler: ended up being redeemed by the end of the series.]]
** Batman and Superman have been frequently compared to [[ComicBook/{{Watchmen}} Rorschach and Dr. Manhattan]], with Batman and Rorschach killing criminals, and Superman and Dr. Manhattan acting brooding and depressed.


* ScapegoatCreator: Zack Snyder received the brunt of negativity once the film came out. While the Ultimate Edition did partially redirect the blame from him towards Warner Bros., who cut out several key scenes, many of the film's detractors still blame him for the major creative choices like the [[ContinuityLockout confusing]] Knightmare sequence and the killing of [[spoiler: ComicBook/JimmyOlsen]].

* CriticProof: Zig-Zagged. ''[=BvS=]'' opened with an expected, although below ''Avengers''-level, blockbuster box office of $166m despite the critical thrashing (27% approval rating compiled by Rotten Tomatoes), leading to WB execs boasting in press releases how the audiences embraced the film. However, the poor word-of-mouth seemingly echoed the critical sentiments, as the film dropped off alarmingly by 69% in its second weekend despite a relative lack of new releases; even international grosses were not spared as the burgeoning China market saw a second-weekend dip over 80% for the film. Although still very profitable, there is no question that the film ultimately fell short of Warner Brothers' expectations, as the profit margin for ''[=BvS=]'' reportedly wound up smaller than it was for ''Man of Steel'' and the $1 billion benchmark that seemed like a formality going in was never reached, as it made a total of $872 million.

** A Batman who kills is nothing new. [[Film/{{Batman}} Michael]] [[Film/BatmanReturns Keaton's]] Bat almost gleefully offed criminals, and other alternate versions have no problem with also doing so, such as the Batman of Earth-51 and Crazy Steve (the fan nickname for the Batman in ''All-Star Batman and Robin''). Even when he makes it clear that he considers killing beneath him he'll still resort to it (''Film/BatmanForever'' and ''Film/TheDarkKnight''). The mainstream Bats ''himself'' was perfectly willing to use lethal force in his very first year.
