Batman Vs Superman was one of the most anticipated movies of 2016 even though some people don’t like it, but that’s not why we’re here.

We saw the movie and many scenes reminded us of our dear Nollywood, here are some of them:

1. When Batman’s parents died in the beginning…

You know how someone’s parents have to die at the beginning of almost every Nollywood movie and they get maltreated by their step mothers.

2. When Batman kept having these nightmares about beasts and flying demons.

Just like the ‘birds’ in Nollywood that only fly at night or appear in people’s dreams.

3. Although Lois Lane was annoying for most of the movie…

She reminded us of the oversabi girlfriend that always finds a way to get in the middle whenever wahala happens.

4. Batman changed his mind on killing Superman when he found out their mothers bore the same name, Martha.

We can imagine him seeing Ngozi Ezeonu’s face flashing before his eyes when he heard “take care of Martha”.

5. At the end of the movie, Superman was ‘killed’ and Batman ended the scene with this line that made us sigh, “I failed him when he was alive, I won’t fail him in death”.

This is perfectly Mike Ezuruonye, with tears streaming down his eyes, resolving to not fail his step brother in death.

The end

We are really excited to watch Captain America: Civil War and hope it will be a different experience.
