Captain America Civil War and Batman v Superman made many of the same storytelling mistakes, Brian Formo says that Civil War just made them less noticeable.
Well, Civil War did "borrow" a lot of things that BvS did.
- The destruction of [insert location here] being used to further the plot.
- Antagonist mad at one of the Hero characters so much that he orchestrated a plan to pit both of them against each other to destroy what they stand for.
- Both main characters fighting against each other because they have different conflicting ideals, morals, etc.
- One of the main characters seeing civilian fatalities as collateral damage due to their actions, and uses that as a form of justifications for them to oppose other main Hero character.
- The questioning of whether it's right or wrong for the world and government to accept Superheroes operating without keeping them in check/ controlled by the government.
-Death of a parent used to emotionally blind one of the main hero characters.
I'm sure there's more, but that's what I remember off the top of my head.
All the stuff you're pointing out was already present in Civil War's comic. So it's more like, BvS borrowed from the Civil War's comic which is the source material of the Civil War movie.
