For the most part, this is about the level of praise that the film is receiving on Twitter. While we can expect that the event of the premiere itself can unintentionally sway some people, the fact is that even if people viewed the film as better than it was because of their surroundings, it still looks like the movie is good.
I haven't felt this giddy after watching a movie since The Avengers. Goosebumps. Everywhere. Need to talk about it ASAP. #BVSPremiere— Rodrigo Mariano (@Dragonsfoe) March 21, 2016
As the launch of DC’s cinematic universe, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice had a lot of work to do. It introduces a number of new characters. Most important among them are that of Batman and Wonder Woman. From all channels, it appears they have had success in that regard. The biggest female superhero ever was cheered by the audience in attendance.
I would just like to say that the only time the entire audience cheered was for WONDER WOMAN. ???????????????????????? #BVSPremiere— Tracy (@TKacz11) March 21, 2016
Ben Affleck, for his part, had to fill a pair of boots that have been filled many times before. It’s possible he did it better than anybody before and has made the role his own.
So Ben Affleck is my favorite Batman now.. #BVSPremiere— Kendell B. (@kburton23) March 21, 2016
Maybe the best test of any film is, after seeing it once, for free, would you then be willing to pay money to see it again? More than one person has already said yes.
Still not over the #BVSPremiere. Still so giddy. Im totaaaaallllyy going to be seeing this again— Mariam Chubinidzhe (@marchubz) March 21, 2016
For those of us who weren’t lucky enough to make it to the New York City premiere, we’re all very excited that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice may be as good as we want it to be. We’ll take as many great comic book movies as we can get, and hopefully we’re now in store for an entire additional series of them.
