Batman v Superman: Batman Is Judge, Jury & Executioner


In Batman v Superman, Batman doesn’t necessarily leave criminals to face the justice system

Batman has never been soft on crime, but it appears that in Batman v Superman, years of fighting the world’s worst criminals and the perceived alien threat of Superman may have pushed him over the edge.

In the latest issue of Empire, producer Charles Roven explained how far Batman is willing to go in Batman v Superman:

"Batman is not giving people a chance… He is more than a vigilante. He has become not only the cop, if you will, he has also become the jury and executioner."

Roven also explained that being Batman so many years, he has seen the worst of what man can do and has lost a lot of people close to him, and not necessarily from old age or illness (i.e. it’s been rumored that both James Gordon and at least one if not multiple Robins are dead in the movie).

I really hope Mr. Roven is exaggerating that executioner part. We joke around about Batman killing guys left and right, but the truth of the matter is doesn’t straight up murder guys. Certainly not run of the mill criminals. If the Batman in Batman v Superman is actually out there murdering guys this film is a bigger fail than anyone ever could have thought possible. If Batman is murdering everyday criminals, he is absolutely a villain and Superman has every right and duty to stop him. He’s basically become the Punisher with money, and I really hate the Punisher. We’ll hopefully find out that this is not true when Batman v Superman opens in theaters March 25th.
