Henry Cavill's Most Constipated Facial Expressions from the 'Batman v Superman' Extended Cut

The extended edition of Batman v Superman comes out on DVD/Blu-ray today. With it, you get 30 extra minutes of the incessant, self-important grimness that makes BvS one of the worst films of 2016 so far. (Winnow BvS down to a slim 90 minutes, on the other hand, and I’m convinced you’d have a quite excellent, albeit unintentional, comedy. A gravelly-voiced Ben Affleck intoning “Do you bleed?… You will” is funnier by far than anything Adam Sandler’s done since The Wedding Singer.)

One of the effects of director Zack Snyder’s misguided attempt to pull a Single White Female on Broodmaster Flash Christopher Nolan is that Henry Cavill, playing Superman, gets to display none of the natural charisma he exhibited in The Man from U.N.C.L.E.. Instead, his Superman is a grimacing, downbeat bore who spends way too much of the Extended Edition’s 183 minute running time looking like he’s trying to squeeze out a particularly obstinate shit.

To wit:

OK, this one’s maybe a little unfair.
