'Batman V. Superman' Officially Gets The 'Rifftrax' Treatment

A year and a half after its release, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice has now come to Rifftrax.

The movie commentary company recently debuted their Batman v. Superman track, which is available to purchase on their website. To give fans an idea of what to expect with the track, Rifftrax released a preview video, which you can check out above.

The preview video adds a humorous layer to quite a few things at the film, from the girl Bruce Wayne/Batman (Ben Affleck) saves remarking that she wishes she was in a Marvel movie, to Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) clarifying that Clark Kent/Superman (Henry Cavill) shouldn't bite Batman's head off "Ozzy style."

The Batman v. Superman Rifftrax enlists the Mystery Science Theater 3000 team of Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett, alongside an array of special guests. As the description for the track exclaims, "Join the team, call your mom Martha, no matter what her real name might be, and let’s take on Batman v. Superman together!"

Rifftrax is no stranger to comic book movies, previously doing delightful commentaries on 300, Batman and Robin, and more. But Batman v. Superman provides the group something else altogether, considering how heavily the movie has been picked apart by some.

And while the film definitely still has its supporters - almost more so, as the years go on - even the film's cast acknowledges the diluge of backlash.

“I can understand people saying [Batman v Superman] was too dark, or this was outside the tone of what I’m used to seeing with a Batman story." Affleck revealed in an interview earlier this year. "And I think that’s a fair criticism.”

If you want to purchase Rifftrax's Batman v. Superman track, you can purchase it for $3.99 here.
