THE SUPERMAN AND LOIS TAPES EPISODE 8: BATMAN V SUPERMAN OR WE WANT A LOIS AND ALFRED MOVIE

Episode 8: Batman v Superman or We Want A Lois and Alfred Movie

This time out The BAM Crew (Bethany, Alison, and Michael) continue their hiatus episodes by continuing their look at the Superman and Lois of the Synderverse.  Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (Ultimate Edition) came out in 2016 and people are still arguing about it.  It has its fans and its detractors and it can be guaranteed that right now, as you are reading this, people are having an all out street fight on Twitter about the pros and cons of the film.  The Crew has a rather spirited conversation about it and their opinions may surprise you.  Alison defended the Batman seen in the movie, Bethany has serious issues with how Superman is portrayed, and Michael is conflicted depending on the character and the scene.

They all left the episode as friends, though.

After the movie discussion Michael delivers another Professor Bailey’s Superman 101 lesson (this time about Lex Luthor), Bethany reveal the people that don’t have a The Most Punchable Face (it was a shorter list), and The Crew  goes through the emails and the comments they have received in the past week.

The Superman and Lois Tapes can be found on both Apple Podcasts and Spotify. The show can be reached by email at [email protected].  You can also leave comments here or over at the Facebook page for the show, which you can get to by clicking this link.

The main theme for the show is “Heroes” by the awesome Mike Schmidt.  You can find his work over at Speed Force Music.

Next Time: The BAM Crew continue their trip through the Snyderverse with (possibly the first part of) Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

One thought on “THE SUPERMAN AND LOIS TAPES EPISODE 8: BATMAN V SUPERMAN OR WE WANT A LOIS AND ALFRED MOVIE”

  1. This was a fun and strange episode for me. I really enjoyed the discussion among you about what you liked, what you didn’t like so much, what worked, what didn’t, etc., but some of the discussion was more or less mysterious to me, because I haven’t seen the movie. It’s not because I hate Zack Snyder, but because I came to realize, in the lead-up to the release of the film in 2016, that I was not part of the audience for it. I’d had some problems with Man of Steel, but was planning to see this one, then the marketing campaign came along. I was not thrilled with the clunky and over-long title, but that was not insurmountable, but when I watched interviews, read articles, and saw trailers, I realized that, to go a bit “Marie Kondo”, none of those things “sparked joy”. I’ve been a fan of Superman and Batman since I was about 4 years old, and I should have been eager to see a movie with DC’s two biggest heroes, but everything I was seeing left me uninterested or bored, and if the promotions for the movie weren’t driving me in any way to see it, I had to stop and think. I came to understand that this didn’t seem to be a movie made with people like me in mind, and that if I saw it, I’d likely be disappointed or annoyed, so I just didn’t go to see it. From all that I’ve seen and heard since the movie came out, I still don’t feel as though I’ve missed anything I’d have wanted to see.
    Please know that this is no slam on your coverage. It was fun listening to the three of you and realizing that there were things you each liked, but it just doesn’t seem to be a movie for me. As I wrote in a comment on the previous episode, “The fountain of Superman is deep, and may all drink their fill.” I’m glad there are those who like this one (some quite passionately), but I just took a pass on it.
