I recently saw the movie Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Being a comic book fan, particularly of DC comics, this movie was clearly a must see for me. When it comes to superhero movies, I believe the plot of the movie should accurately represent the stories told in the comics as best as they can. The same goes for the characters.

While this is exactly what happens in the comic, the movie took an iconic comic book moment and packed it into a ten minute scene. Apparently a two hour and thirty minute movie only had time to show the most popular Superman fight that led to his death for just a few minutes.
