Differences and Similarities between Civil War and Batman v Superman

For better or for worse, 2016 has already seen the release of its biggest superhero movies – Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War. X-Men: Apocalypse could have made the list, as well, but early word of mouth and reviews seem to suggest that it won’t be as big as the studio hopes – while not on par with The Last Stand, the X-Men franchise will surely lose some fans after Apocalypse arrives.

So returning to the two behemoths from Marvel/Disney and DC/Warner Bros., it can be said that there couldn’t be two comic book movies that were more different, from the reception of the final product to the outcome. However, there are quite a few similarities, as well.

So what differences can be found between these two? And, more importantly, what do they have in common?

I guess everybody saw both Batman v Superman and Civil War. However, just in case, here is the necessary spoiler warning – here be major spoilers, for both of these movies.
