A lot of fans enjoyed Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice for its spectacle, but it lacked in story and character development. The movie looks cool, but there's more to making a film than just stunning visuals. On the Ralph Garman's Hollywood Babble-On podcast, filmmaker Kevin Smith shared his thoughts on the movie, saying that the film didn't have a heart and calling it "humorless". He explains:

"Remember before when we were talking about Flash, and that it has heart, humor, and spectacle. The movie I felt like didn't really have a heart. It was certainly fucking humorless, there was nothing funny going on in that world whatsoever, but it had lots of spectacle. Like you can't take that away from Snyder. Boy, he knows how to like compose a frame and how to setup a shot. Beautiful visual stylist but you need more than just the pictures, you need like characterization and these characters seemed off character, particularly Superman."

I have to agree with Kevin Smith about the movie. It brings a lot of characters together, but didn't spend enough time to develop them and bring morality into the story. You can read our review here. You can read what critics are saying about the movie here.
