Batman v Superman Rewatch: Minute 39, 'His Brother's Misfortune'

Batman v Superman By The Minute Podcast

As the most controversial comic book movie in history, the debates over Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice rage on even years later. The online discussion divided audiences into either loving or hating Zack Snyder's take on DC's heroes, instead of discussing it as fans--a problem the Batman v Superman: By The Minute Podcast hopes to change.

The questions posed by the movie itself--What does "the American Way" mean today? When does a hero become a villain? How would Earth react to the events of Man of Steel?--went unexplored. Even if the film's detractors despise the answers Snyder offers to these questions, shouldn't superhero fans decide for themselves if they're worth asking? Two Screen Rant Editors have set out to discover the truth, rewatching the movie one minute at a time.

Batman v Superman Rewatch Podcast 39

Welcome to Batman v Superman: By The Minute, a podcast devoted to rewatching, discussing, and deconstructing Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, one minute at a time.

In Minute 39: "His Brother's Misfortune" Bruce Wayne takes in an underground boxing match, like any Gotham billionaire. After giving his fighter the tip needed to take down his opponent, Bruce makes his move on Anatoli Knyazaev--completely unaware that his prey is the one who has sprung the trap. But not before reciting a Russian proverb encapsulating the grey area at the heart of Batman v Superman: that "good luck for one is always his brother's misfortune... but all accounts are balanced in the end."
