Batman v Superman, Dawn of Justice   dvd

...Batman v Superman kicks off DC's expanded universe with a bang and it certainly delivers on the premise that DC does NOT want to imitate Marvel in any fashion. They're going to "do their own thing" which is exactly what any comic book lover could of hoped for as I feared we would get repeats of the same exact films Marvel had already released years ago (and are still releasing)....  -- amazon--
