Princess Diana/Wonder Woman (Susan Eisenberg), Superman, and Kara

Watching this movie for the first time, I had trouble following the story. For example, I had no prior knowledge of Darkseid and the movie didn't explain enough. In particular, the film explained he wanted to find a new captain, but I didn't understand why.

On a positive note, I liked the artwork.

My favorite full scene was Wonder Woman and Big Barda fighting the Female Furies. My favorite snippet was when Kara grabs Darkseid by the head and flips him over.

take a fighting stance against the Female Furies.

Speaking of Kara, the movie was actually more about Supergirl than either Superman or Batman. It should also be noted that Superman got more onscreen time than Batman. With that being said, Batman played an important role throughout the movie.

As a final remark, I was a little confused about the Doomsday clones. In the end, I concluded the following: the more clones that were made, the weaker they were, and so Darkseid only made enough to buy himself time.

Overall, this was a good movie, but it wasn't as good as Batman: Under the Red Hood (2010).
