There are a lot of problems with Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. A lot a lot. That doesn’t mean it’s completely without its merits, however: Ben Affleck’s new Batman – the Batfleck, if you will – is a far cry from Christian Bale’s wounded street fighter, and while this version of the character might hardly be faithful to the comics, the Batfleck is still one of the few aces that Batman V Superman has up its sleeve.
