In fact, Reddit’s coolerthanabagofice has taken to the website to reveal that Krypton’s most famous son only had a grand total of 43 lines of dialogue in ‘Batman V Superman’, which goes some way to explaining why fans have been unable to resonate with Cavill’s incarnation of the character.

It’s been a schoolyard staple for decades: Who would win, Batman or Superman? At first blush, the easy answer would be the god-like Kryptonian in a cakewalk over the all-too-human Caped Crusader.
