It’s really, really tough to watch something and understand what it’s about then see people say it means something different or, worse yet, the complete opposite. Such is the case with the major event in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Superman’s death. Because people are so used to him being an altruist, they call his death a self-sacrifice. But it isn’t. Just as Zack Snyder subverted the Jesus myth version of Superman in Man of Steel, he subverted the altruist Superman in the sequel. I explain how in this video.
