In celebration of our HET v. DC: DAWN OF RECS month, pop down into the comments of this post to discuss, flail, and otherwise react to the megamovie that is Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, as well as any other DC universes (TV, comics, other movies, etc.) that are giving you the feels lately.

A few, well, let's not call them rules. Let's call them Guidelines for Harmonious Living:

  1. The comments on this post are not spoiler-free, which is to say: if you haven't seen the movie and don't want to know about the scene where [redacted] or whether [redacted] [redacted], don't look down—just pop back after you've seen it. If you have seen the movie, feel free to talk about whatever scenes and plot twists you like!

  2. Discussion topics not related to het ships are welcome, as are discussion topics related to het ships. If you have thoughts about the upcoming Wonder Woman movie, how many more spinoff shows the CW can handle, or the Netflix of it all, comment away! Comic-book canon topics are also welcome, if anyone's feeling pumped about this summer's relaunch or just wants to dig further into the origins of the onscreen characters.

  3. Play nice. Whether this movie was the best or worst thing you've ever seen, not everyone's going to agree; one fan's favorite ship is another fan's NOTP. And that's fine. But keep the tone and the language respectful—if you join this discussion, it means you're recognizing everyone else's right to their own opinions and feels. We mean it.

  4. HAVE FUN—and remember to post your DC recs!

YES! Talk to me all about Arrow. Are you okay with Laurel's death? Do you think BTS things led to it? When will my OTP get back together? Will Dig go dark? When is Thea getting back to wearing crop tops? TALK TO ME!

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice
I'd love a discussion about how people saw the shipping in Batman vs Superman. I loved Clark/Lois in Man of Steel and that, 18 months on, they were together and yet I have mixed feelings about how that relationship was depicted, partly due to the space given to it and to Clark and Lois as characters.

I also got the impression that they might try to develop Bruce/Diana in the Justice League films, although my personal preference is that they wouldn't.

Re: Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice
Clark/Lois in BvS seemed to me almost as an afterthought. As if they just put it there for the sake of having some kind of an established romance in the movie and nothing more.

As for Bruce/Diana, I guess it would depend on how they would go about it. Although I am Bruce/Selina shipper first and foremost, I did like the Bruce/Diana in Justice League Unlimited (in the few episodes I saw).

I'm actually kind of glad they didn't go with Clark/Diana as in the animated movies. I can handle Bruce/Diana, Clark/Diana not so much. I'm just hoping there won't be any love triangle. If anything can put me off, it's a love triangle.

Re: Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice
Clark/Lois in BvS seemed to me almost as an afterthought. I thought it was underdeveloped. They could have done more with the realisation that people had made the connection between Lois in danger and Superman turning up, for instance. I mean, post MOS, it was an established relationship and so Clark/Diana was unlikely.

I am Bruce/Selina shipper first and foremost, Me too! But there's no Selina as yet, and has there been talk of one in this reboot for the movie franchise? I'm waiting to see the Wonder Woman standalone. If they're going to do solo movies mixed with Justice League movies, hopefully we'll be spared love triangles.

Re: Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice
I felt like the movie had too much going on to really focus on Clark/Lois and their relationship kinda felt short-sighted and shallow. They had a nice beginning in MoS but in BvS, Lois was so in the background and unfortunately came off as a damsel-in-distress in most of their scenes together (aside from where she defended Clark against Bruce by stepping before the kyroptonite spear). Were they living together or did Clark had keys to her house? There were too many gaps left.

And I can be all in for Wonderbat because their scenes were sizzling with sexual tension.

Re: Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice
I agree that Lois/Clark were short-changed and some more questions could have been answered about their relationship. I think that the ship and Lois in particular would have benifited from there being an MoS2 before being caught up in trying to jump-start the Justice League franchise.

I didn't feel the UST myself, but I don't have any history with Wonderbat and end up shipping BatCat in most versions of Batman I come across.
