    Wonder Woman herself stated that this is a fight to the death, why is she offering Regime the opportunity to surrender, break the rules, and place her mother's life in further jeopardy? Inconsistencies like this weigh down what could be a good match-up. Unfortunately, this is going the way of the circuitous superhero fight, where one hero gets the upper hand, then the other comes back. Now, if that doesn't happen, then everything that's been displayed in this universe is called into question. I don't believe that Regime Superman, who survived Mogo, and pushed the planet into the sun, would cringe on his knees like a punk from a broken arm. Neither do I believe Wonder Woman could withstand his heat vision, particularly when the image of someone being blasted away right next to her shows its apparent force. This fight has done absolutely nothing to push the story further. In fact, it's a reminder of how much has been lost since Year Two.

Cover: Yildiray Cinar with Rex Lokus

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    If you've read enough comics, then you're familiar with the tropes involved in a 'hero vs hero' fight. There's always some contrived situation demanding that the heroes battle each other, and the fight is usually lackluster, with rare exception. This will go down in the annals of yet another boring fight, part I. The abilities possessed by Wonder Woman and Regime Superman, especially with their absent moral code, should produce a striking battle. Instead, it's a rote, two-step, pablum match... with exposition no less. No super-speed, no combat strategy, and worst of all, this is a battle to the death. Why is Regime Superman holding back? This is Regime Superman, killer extraordinaire, and he wants to play light with Wonder Woman of all people? Wonder Woman, who's blood-thirst is exceeded by no man, hence why she's "Wonder Woman". She's going to go berserk and break something.

July 6, 2015: Cavill on More Stand-Alone Superman MoviesPrint

Man of Steel In another EW.com report, Henry Cavill is quoted as reiterating that "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" isn't exactly a sequel to "Man of Steel".

    "As far as the individual character is concerned, this is not a Superman sequel," says Cavill. "It's more of an introduction to Batman, an opening to Justice League, and an expansion of the world that was created in Man of Steel."

But will we ever see him in another stand-alone Superman film?

    "There's plenty of time for individual Superman sequels," the actor says. "He's a tough character to tell. People like the darker vigilante. I think it speaks to the human psyche more easily rather than the god-like being that we can't really understand. Once we have a more expansive universe we can delve more into the character of Superman and hopefully tell more stories."
