Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

I'm really surprised the internet hasn't blown up yet, they keep pushing and pushing.

I'm wondering what Kevin Smith has to say about this?
The Batsuit and the Batmobile are very crucial to get right. A grown man in a Batsuit can look silly if not done right. I am sure they will select a suit that goes with Superman's suit.

Batman Fans Beg Obama To Remove Ben Affleck From 'Superman' Sequel
  • There's only one person tough enough to save the country, nay the world, from the sight of Ben Affleck dressed as Batman: President Barack Obama.

    Or so some Batman fans thought when they signed a petition at "We the People" to request Affleck's removal from playing the Caped Crusader in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel. "We the People" is part of the White House's official web site where common folk can push change they can believe in.

    Sadly, the petition has been taken down from the site.

Didn't one of the recent animated movies have a really cool Batmobile? In the new 52, doesn't he have a shit load of Batmobiles? I hope the Suit is not overly detailed and I hope it's grey this time and not black. Maybe some kind of armor similar to Captain America in the first movie.

I can totally envision it. The Soviets want to clone Bigfoot and make a Bigfoot Army and Indy happens to be in the Himalaya's or something, tracking the cultures who have claimed Bigfoot stories, he's trying to find a cultural connection, when he's captured by the Soviets and Mutt has to rescue him.

Edit: In the end, Indy finds a family of Bigfoots that look eerily similar to Wookies. They all laugh and communicate in some way and Indy turn to the camera and say's some corny line and winks, thus tying the Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises together, roll credits.

Of course Maul could still be alive at that point!

In The New 52 he does have a cache of batmobiles which seems to be each one he's had in every incarnation of the character. (A visual in-joke) the one he primarily uses has Tumbler-like features.

I don't want another tank. I want a cool car, not over the top cartoonish, but cool. I think a balance between TDK, TAS. and the Arkham games would be nice. The realistic approach with cool gadgets and a badass Batcave and an Arkham style suite would be perfect, I think.

Okay, I'm biased since I wrote the novelization, but I never had a problem with Affleck as Matt Murdock. And he's been good in films as diverse as CHASING AMY, ARGO, and SHAKESPEARE
And seeing as you also wrote the novelisation of the last Batman movie, I'm inclined to trust your judgement. (Though I also liked DD and was also in the pro-Affleck camp anyway)

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Yeah if they DO go for the black armor again, I hope they at least make it more along the lines of the Batman Returns armor-- something that was slick and cool and had some actual style to it.

Unlike the Nolan suits, which were either overly thick and rubbery, or so segmented and overly utilitarian that it didn't even look like a superhero costume anymore.

Is Affleck going to be Nolan-verse Bruce Wayne who somehow came out of retirement because JGL messed up?
No, its not the same 'verse. This was discussed at length when the film was announced.

Okay, so I'm gonna go ahead and be that guy: where was he during the Metropolis battle, then? He couldn't hop in a Bat-Plane and help out? And when Clark showed up at the military base, are we really supposed to believe no one mentioned that other cape-and-costume-wearing guy, or did those mentions just oh-so-conveniently happen off-screen?
He was busy. Major shit was going down in Gotham. (Same excuse they've used in comics for decades)

A bunch of people mentioned it, as you surmised, off camera.

One thing that Affleck does have going for him is that he knows the character from the comic books. He's actually read them and not just says he has.

Affleck wouldn't be my first choice (personally, I was a fan of Josh Brolin or Jon Hamm), but I think he's a good actor who can probably be a pretty good Batman.
