Sunday night, at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice had its star-studded US premiere. Those hoping to find out what their favorite film critics thought, will have to wait until the embargo is lifted on Tuesday (6PM EST).
However, we do have for you a compilation of reactions from those that attended the event as well as a spoiler-free review from The Sun.
"The intensity of the insanely long film is achieved with special effects, plot twists, geeky references and the volume being turned up to eleven from start to finish," wrote Emma Gritt of The Sun. "While die-hard DC Comic devotees might be punching the air as the Justice League are teasingly introduced, the average film fan may be left scratching their head. Overall Zac Snyder's Batman v Superman blockbuster is an emotionally charged punch-up — but it's newcomer Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman who really steals the show."

If #BatmanvSuperman is an example of what to expect from future DC movies then Marvel better watch out— Tom Nolan (@ThatsMrTomNolan) March 21, 2016
Batman v Superman was great. Jesse Eisenberg's performance in particular blew me away. #BatmanvSuperman— cR_WoundCowboy (@cR_WoundCowboy) March 21, 2016
Still not over the #BVSPremiere. Still so giddy. Im totaaaaallllyy going to be seeing this again— Mariam Chubinidzhe (@marchubz) March 21, 2016
I love Keaton more than anyone, but this is the best live action Batman ever. And it's not even remotely close. #BatmanvSuperman— Carl Cunningham (@carlcunningham) March 21, 2016
Also, naysayers... Zack Snyder + Chris Terrio = WIN. You want a race, well DC may have just caught up with one movie. #BatmanvSuperman— Carl Cunningham (@carlcunningham) March 21, 2016
Orders of magnitude better than MAN OF STEEL. #BatmanvSuperman— Carl Cunningham (@carlcunningham) March 21, 2016
Also, many aspects are not what people are expecting. The trailers were cleverly deceptive. #BatmanvsSuperman— Carl Cunningham (@carlcunningham) March 21, 2016
@BLynchBooks I am! It...it was an incredible movie. Totally lived up to my expectations, and still had lots of surprises— Ben Kahn (@BenTheKahn) March 21, 2016
Lots to process and think about, but overall BvS is an excellent movie #BVSPremiere— Ben Kahn (@BenTheKahn) March 21, 2016
@AMSismyname But Eisenberg's Luthor and Affleck's Batman were clear highlights of the movie— Ben Kahn (@BenTheKahn) March 21, 2016
@DgPedroperez I'd already liked Cavill in MoS, but he's clearly more comfortable and confident in the role this time around— Ben Kahn (@BenTheKahn) March 21, 2016
Overall, I left #BatmanvSuperman looking forward to seeing it again.— Patrick Guaschino (@Pat_JG) March 21, 2016
In Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice opens March 25, 2016.
