9 Things to Consider for the Superman/Batman Movie


Warner Bros. rocked the San Diego Comic-Con when they announced that they're finally bringing the two titans of DC comics together in a film. As a follow-up to Man of Steel, Batman and Superman will appear on screen together in just two years. This is certainly something to be excited about, it's the kind of movie that we've all dreamed about for years. Especially after Marvel debuted The Avengers it made everyone turn around and say to WB, “Okay, your turn.” We've heard rumors of Justice League films for such a long time and this movie is the closest thing we'll get to that, at least for the foreseeable future. Now don't think I'm not excited about the prospects of this film, because I am, but I think that it's shortsighted on WB's part to make this bold proclamation. I'm also not saying that WB isn't smart, clearly they are, but I have a few questions that we all should think about regarding this movie.

I just want good character development between them. The action could take a backseat to that for all I care. Their relationship needs to work and feel genuine for anything in this movie to work.

"Batman: The kryptonite is near your heart. I don't know if I'll get it before the wound closes.

Superman: Where's The Flash when you need him?

Batman: Do me a favor and lose the sense of humor.

Superman: Do us both a favor and buy one."

Epic line from Public enemies >.< I want it in one of the movies sooooooooo badly.

It will be directed by : Zack Snyder which means its going to be another VIDEO GAME grahpic movie without any story just like Man of Steel. It was so boring movie. 2hr was boring and then 20 final min it was transformer 3 movie.

I actually liked Man of Steel, but I agree, Zack Snyder needs to STOP making superhero movies, his movies have no storyline substance at all.

"going to be another VIDEO GAME grahpic movie"

Not a bad thing :D Some games look amazing. Also, you shouldn't try & troll games when FilmWatch's sister site N4G is right around the corner mkay?

"without any story just like Man of Steel."

>_> Not sure if you're serious. Oh i get it. You're one of the Donnerites i've heard so much about... Nice to meat ya ^_^ Anyways, the story centered around General Zod trying to terraform an inhabitable planet to save the last of his Kryptonian race. And for that he needs the Codex which was a part of Clark. Add that to Clark struggling to cope with his extraterrestrial origins and him letting his adoptive father (Jonathan Kent) die for something only Jonathan truly believed was the right choice and you've actually got alot of story going on. Not even sure if we saw the same movie but that seems like a pretty decent amount of story right there.

"then 20 final min it was transformer 3 movie."

Not sure what you mean by that but I along with many people thought the ending was great. Alot better than the cr@p-fest Superman returns at least, where the final battle was between Superman and an Island... Sounds to me like you went in with low expectations and did everything in your power to make sure they were met.

If to be real, Superman could kill Batman with less than second. I mean Superman is faster than a bullet. Batman can´t even turn his back when Superman could already kill Batman already.
But again, if krpytonite is near Batman and Superman a while and no fight, then Superman is weak but again Superman could fly away from kryptonite and blow house up :D

I swear if Batman fights Superman and wins, im going to flip.

Don't worry, the moment before that happens, Lex and the Joker will burst in reveal their ultimate plan for no reason whatsoever.

Kryptonite + Cash = nuff said...

I seriously think they should establish the Superman trilogy before jumping the shark and doing this.

Maybe because they want to catch up real quick on Marvel's The Avengers plus each of the characters' inter-connected film adventure stories.

Would be good to see DC come out first with the Wonder Woman film and then move onto a Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman trio with hints of the Flash where they now form the Justice League which I think honestly ties-up with the comics.

The chief concern for me is what kind of balance is there going to be in regards to fun/campy style that Superman handles to be family-friendly like he used to be. I still liked Man of Steel, even with its flaws, but that's one thing that became particularly annoying--though I respect the artistic license to do so.
