This was waaaaaaay better than I expected it to be. When Richard ask Bruce why, hasn't he stopped Shiva? I instantly laughed because I know he couldn't. Gold XD XD

I still believe this should have been 70s Wonder Woman Powerless story.

It's weird seeing Richard Dragon who's a Red haired Caucasian in the comics being not only Asian but looking similar to Bruce Lee but then I remember the novel where the character made his first appearance had a cover where he was drawn to look similar to Bruce Lee.

If that was the case, it would have been called soul of the dragon 🐉, minus the batman.

Maybe that's the reason why it earns 56% audience score on rotten tomato because they're story is off the rails.

Just a different excuse to throw the old Bruce Timm style Batman back out there. Their cartoon animation approach looks stiff and lifeless just like their mortal Kombat animated movie. They should go out side of their traditional animation style and move away from their traditional animators and go get the people who made Akira.

I agree, Batman is not necessary for the story, I was hopping to see a remake of the Terrible Trio. On the other hand, this is a cartoon rather than a 3D animation, which is a huge asset for me. I watched this movie without expecting much, and actually I enjoyed it.

Doomsday would have some of the DNA from orcs on well Krypton the power snatchers from marvel those pointy ear dudes or those guys called those are severely corrupted and twisted versions of what the elves on the Krypton supposed to be and some of the DNA from wood imps whatever that called part women part tree part Faye anyway that DNA made it to Earth and became a extremely recessive gene that was really watered down and guess who has it poison ivy the joker may have an extremely watered down barely hanging there thread of a thread of dark elf Gene that was twisted.

Some versions of the theory state that the book of Revelations have correspondence with what happened to Krypton brainiac IE the beast the dragon and the Kings attached to the beast I.e the guardians of the universe Green lantern guardians etc etc etc etc.
David Holbrook
David Holbrook Prije 6 dana
There's a fan theory that Batman the Wayne family is one of the 13 exiled kryptonians that had their DNA locked out the match whatever species that they were sent to and encrypted severely and that's the reason why Batman can push himself so long and why he can learn so much and why he can't seem to let go it's the tiny bit of Kryptonian that is shining through under layers and layers and layers and layers and layers of falsehuman now this happened a long time ago so his DNA got spliced on some mutants or something and then there's also the theory that Krypton what screwed over by brainiac originally fan theoryized rise that Krypton was originally more like the world of Warcraft and that the kryptonians had their own magic and their own houses and coat of arms and all sorts of other stuff and then brainiac introduced genetically Superior versions that of the people of Krypton that didn't believe in their gods and didn't believe in magic and was super science heavy and literally programmed into their DNA to be more manipulated by brainiac from the shadows The brainiac we know in the show is really a fusion between the AI that the kryptonians built and the AI from that is that is the real brainiac.

Honestly DC can't survive without Batman. AT&T might dissolve or sell them off if they keep fuckinf up like this especially if or once Batman sales in comics, movies, and merchandise start to slip. Cause seriously if I was looking at what sells and only see 1 and sometimes Superman sell yea ight that company is done.

This really wasn't a batman movie, it was a Richard Dragon movie, guest starring Batman. The 70s theme was cool, a lot of the action was cool. The concept was great. The execution lacked in parts, and frankly the wokeness injected into this pissed me off. Having Bronze Tiger belittle Bruce's trauma of his parents being killed somehow is he is still privileged and then of course having Tiger beat Bruce up. Cause that's what the public want a rich white man beat up my a black man and also being told his trauma doesn't matter, as being a child seeing your parents killed in front of you. Doesn't deserve sympathy cause your white.

Honestly if I was to write it on a scale 1 to 10 it would be a 5 1/2 Batman being the weakest link out of the four of them just didn’t make sense to me. since he has beaten every last one of them in the DC universe, not only that since when is Batman a killer? And not only that the whole Bruce Lee homage was kind of corny what was cool is it took place in the 70s.

Sounds like this movie could've used the "Batman: Assault on Arkham" movie treatment. There they focused more on the Suicide Squad characters with Batman more in the background. They would have his name in the marketing and give him minimal involvement, at least until the climax.

If we get a sequel please let don't put Batman in it.
