Since the conversation between Martha and Louis may be subject to disagreement. I will simply point that the Amazons call each other by name during their fight with the Parademons.

The conversation between Martha and Lois passes this site's definition of the Bechdel Test ("talk about" rather than "have a conversation about"). Martha and Lois talk about Martha losing her home, even though it is during a conversation about Clark.

It's disappointing that a 4-hour movie couldn't do better than a technicality, but that's a different discussion.

Not sure if the Martha and Lois scene counts, cause it was actually Martian Manhunter

I agree with the rating because of the Amazonians. However, Martha is actually J'onn so I would disagree with that point.

Quin disagreed with the rating and said:
The conversation between Lois and Martha doesn’t count because Martha is revealed to be Martian Manhuter pretending to be Martha.

I hadn't thought of how the Martian Manhunter reveal changes the Bechdel Test. Like the reverse of Jumanji.
