You don’t need us to tell you that Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was a very divisive film, but it’s fair to say that it was visually stunning (well, apart from whatever was going on with Doomsday). That sort of thing is something that Zack Snyder has never struggled with throughout his career, a fact which is evident from the impressive VFX reel above.
Of course, VFX work has become so impressive in recent years that it’s easy not to appreciate it, especially as it’s often so seamless. That’s probably why the director put together this look at everything from animation tests to massive digital destruction, as it should give you a newfound respect for just how much hard work is put into blockbusters like this one. No matter how polarizing they may be.

The whole thing is pretty fascinating, but chances are it won’t change anyone’s mind on Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. The movie was what it was and all eyes are now on Justice League and, to a lesser extent, Wonder Woman to “fix” the DC Extended Universe. Despite that, it’s clear Snyder put a lot of work in here, and it’s hard not to wonder why that ultimately wasn’t something many reviewers acknowledged.
Regardless of your stance on the movie, the video above really is well worth checking out, especially if you’re at all curious about the process which went into bringing the world shared by the Man of Steel and Caped Crusader to life in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
