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.
Whether you love the film, despise it, or were among those driven out of the middle or disappointed, all are invited to join hosts Stephen Colbert and Andrew Dyce as they examine Batman v Superman's characters, plot, themes, cinematography, stunt work, and the film's place in the larger history of superhero storytelling. With 41 minutes of the "Ultimate Cut" already down, fans can start from the very beginning on their podcast service of choice--or listen to the latest episode, Minute 42: "The Four Horsemen" below.
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 42: "The Four Horsemen" Senator June Finch meets with Lex Luthor in his sophisticated room of death and Biblical allegories. After sharing his father's wisdom on the healing powers of Kentucky bourbon(?) Finch gives Lex the bad news: she won't approve the import license for his Kryptonian-killing mineral. But why would the woman who fancies herself America's watchdog not be willing to bite? A question best answered with an in-depth discussion of the Four Horsemen of the Book of Revelations, and the BvS characters that fit them perfectly.
