    important as the male characters because of the camera angles that are used when she is seen. The context of the movie, specifically the storyline of the movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, reveals a lot about how women are viewed in action movies. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the story is based on a debate of whether or not Superman should be seen as a hero because of the destruction that was done to their city of Metropolis. Batman knows that Superman should not stay and attempts several times to take down Superman. Meanwhile, when this is going on, the evil villain Lex Luthor has his own plan with kryptonite to destroy the world and mankind. Eventually, both Superman and Batman have to band together to prevent Lex Luthor from destroying the world with his kryptonite (Synopsis). Most of the movie is focused on all the male characters such as Superman, Batman, and Lex Luthor. It isn’t until the end of the movie where Wonder Woman is finally on screen for an important part of the movie: the final battle. Wonder Woman being included in the final battle does show that she is important enough to be in a big scene, but if she was truly important in the movie, she would have showed up much earlier in the movie, and not just at the end. Wonder Woman may seem important and independent because she is not a sidekick, but the main scene where she is present and independent still makes women look as if they are all alone in life or death situations. Wonder…

    — well, you can put that on the back burner, because once he/they saves the day everyone again forgets about all those thousands of people he killed when his laser vision wrecked a few city blocks. Luckily, the cinematographers seemed to acknowledge the extent of the protagonists’ might, panning over swathes of Smallville or tracts of urbania during fights, rerouting viewers’ attention from the monotonous dialogue. And to the effect that everyone was begging for after those gloomy trailers,…

    A hero can be classified by many things. A hero can be superman, a police officer, and even your mom, but what makes a hero? Is it someone who can fly or shoot laser beams from their eyes or someone who saves a baby from a burning building? I’ll admit some of these characteristics are far-fetched since I don’t know anyone who can fly or randomly saves babies on a normal day. All heroes, including super ones, all have something in common, they're admired for their courage or an outstanding thing…

    It's the age-old tale of good versus evil. The endless battle between these two sides is at the center of every story. It's the glue that holds the whole thing together. I mean, would you read a story that didn't have a villain in it? Or a hero? One side wins all the time? No, thank you. I like heroes jumping through hurdles, I like it when the bad guy wins sometimes, I like the enmity. But most importantly, I love its symbiotic relationship. A hero cannot exist without his villain. Likewise,…

    Superman: Intentionally Made a Hero When you hear the word criminal, what is your prototype, or the best-fitting mental picture of a criminal? What comes to mind is due to the coding in a culture, or a rule-governed system of signs which are shared and used to generate and circulate meanings in and for that culture. Codes are used in order to convey meanings that constitute our cultural world, many of which are seen through television, films and other forms of media. In Season 1, Episode 7 of…

    This Superman era has moved up and touched the older generations too by producing new movies throughout the years. Many people watch these movies or read the comics carelessly, probably not thinking that this could have anything to do with philosophers theories. I was one of those people until now. The way Clone Superman is willing to do anything he is told by a high power, his being Lex Luthor, is a perfect example of Kierkegaard’s “Knight of Faith.” Kant’s hypothetical and categorical…
