‘It’s about an insane billionaire who hates illegal aliens’
Which of the film’s billionaires is first coming to your mind? There are two! Certainly one is more ‘insane’ than the other, yet both seem from the trailers to take issue with Kal-El.
It’s a fascinating thought, one that ties in very well with my dissertation from 7 years ago in which I proved that live action adaptations of Superman have appeared and changed at times and in ways that highlight global concerns and situations in the U.S.A.
The idea that the plot of ‘BvS’ mirrors key campaign policies of the current presidential race is a thought that I’m sure I won’t be able to shake from my mind when I get to see the film on Friday morning at 00.01am. Will it spoil or add to my appreciation of the film?
Hopefully I’ll enjoy this instalment far more than ‘Man of Steel‘ which I had serious issues with, early indications are that I may find more to like and less to be annoyed with this time round. I really hope so!
