Default The Key Themes Of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

I see a lot of threads about the characters involved in the movie, and all the other componets into this highly anticipated superhero movie.

What about the key themes and story elements in the movie, there are a lot of key themes heading into this movie.

E.g. Redemption for Superman and Batman, Love between Lois and Clark, Jealousy for Lex Luthor and Empowerment for Wonder Woman.

What do you think?

The idea of Lexcorp being a Google/Apple/Facebook type of company, to be updated, since the DCCU is set in today's world.

I get the vibe that the movie will be about questioning the benefits of a Superman - should they trust him? Is he good? Batman would ask that, Luthor would ask that, Lois would write about it - with the movie eventually vindicating and validating him... maybe via a death/sacrifice. Batman's arc would be about learning to have faith in others (Supes), Superman's would be about proving himself, earning that faith, etc. Just my theory, it's an easy one to have at this point.

I guess theme of 'Gods among us' or 'giants that walk the earth' will be one of the main.

I feel like this is going to have a more mythological presence in the movie.

My hunch is there's going to be themes about public/media perception.

My thought will be of an existing theme of jealousy and madness, when it comes to Lex Luthor's obsession and envy of Superman.

I'm getting the idea there may be a new vs old theme going on. Batman's being outclassed both as Batman and Bruce Wayne by the newer younger kids on the block, Superman and Lex Luthor.

There might be some parental love between Clark and Martha, also with Alfred and Bruce.

The different ideologies of Batman and Superman will be one of the main themes.

I think Bruce could approach Clark at first seeing how much in common he actually has with the Kryptonian of being an outcast. I think Bruce is smart enough to see how trusthworthy Superman is and understands the situation as being alienated from the world himself by doing good and that's what attracts Bruce to Clark.

I think that Superman wants to be accepted so bad by the people that he could turn to Lex as his main mentor with the people since Lex is Metrpolis's golden boy. Afterall, this Superman doesn't know better at this point to what's right and wrong and is focused squarely on being one with the people. How convenient would it be to align himself with Luthor first? Lex is ego hungry enough to the point where he'd gladly do everything it took to build Superman up only to make himself look better in the process and damage Supes even more in his manipulating process, Bruce being one of them.

I think the driving force behind this movie could be an identity crisis. Nobody will simply know who is trustworthy and who is the one with the agenda with all parties involved and it could cause for some huge drama being unfolded.

I'll say a theme to the movie would be Identity Crisis.

I think the theme should be in the keys of D and C.

I'm glad that WB/DC are exploring the philisophical, social, political and religious themes in this movie.

I kind of expected WB/DC to make their movies more up to date with the real world, alongside those social themes.

I like the whole "FALSE GOD" element because it impliments the theme of fear and paranoia among the public, who fear Superman for his powers.

It's pointing towards a redemption story for Superman, which is the way forward.

Not sure I'd use 'redemption' (as assuming he's done something wrong.

I'd say more a story about trust, and how easily the common man's opinion is controlled by The Powers That Be.

Exploring the themes of fear, media propoganda and paranoia of the common man, due to manipulations of those in power.

It seems the movie is going to deal with the issue of what would happen if a being such as Superman really showed up here on Earth – brave move and something nobody has done so far!
Can you imagine it - Superman turning up in the US – the Russians, N. Koreans, Iran... and more... can you imagine their reaction. Then there's the religious aspect – people would question their faiths – the man has god like powers.
