Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is a dark, serious superhero drama that pits the titular DC comics characters -- Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) -- against each other, though ultimately the message is one of teamwork. As the two grow distrustful of each other, supervillain Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) sets the stage for an even deadlier battle between the forces of good and a nearly unstoppable evil. The violence can be up close and personal: Characters' loved ones are captured at gun point, an entire room explodes, and people are shot execution style. There's some romance and passionate kisses between Clark and Lois (who live together) -- one that takes place in a tub while she's taking a bath (her bare shoulders/legs are seen, as is a woman's bare back in another scene, as well as men's bare chests). Language is limited to a couple of uses of "s--t" and "damn," and adults drink wine and cocktails.

Sexual Content

Clark and Lois, who live together, kiss several times. In one scene, she's taking a bath (her bare shoulders and legs are visible), and then he gets in the bath (dressed), and they start kissing passionately. Bruce is a player, as always; he wakes up next to a half-naked woman who's sleeping in his bed; her back is visible. He also flirts with Diana Prince. Both Bruce and Clark are shown shirtless.


A high body count, both from explosions and collateral damage from the superheroes' fights. Assassins shoot and kill many people. An intense car chase leads to lots of deaths. Buildings collapse, an entire room full of people is blown up, and characters/crowds are injured or die. Characters are abducted at gunpoint. Batman and Superman fight and hurt each other.


A couple of uses of "s--t," "damn."

Social Behavior

As in most movies about more than one superhero, the film has messages about the importance of working together to defeat a common threat -- and of knowing there are those who love and depend on you to make wise choices.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
