Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is arguably the most divisive superhero film to ever be released, fueling the ongoing debate between fans over the quality of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and DC Extended Universe films. One of the most frequently discussed moments in Batman v. Superman occurred when the two titular heroes ceased their feud upon realizing that their respective mothers shared the same name. It was moment that detractors often cite as an example of the film’s poor quality and now the actress portraying Martha Kent has made a statement that may not reassure fans who have concerns for Zack Snyder’s Justice League. In an interview on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Diane Lane stated that she believes Justice League will not be a better film that Marvel’s The Avengers.
When asked if she could offer any Justice League spoilers and if the film would be better than Marvel’s The Avengers, Lane gave a blunt response.
“No, and no. Short, but honest. I hate to disappoint, but…“
