Well, given that there are two different sports called football, it helps to have an easy way to distinguish them, for clarity's sake.
*Facepalm*

Is it in any way germane to the story or something which could not be gleaned from the link I posted? Seriously, this OCD-level need you have to show the extent of your knowledge to all and sundry is totally embarrassing. Do you think anyone reading the post really thought this might be a soccer match?

Anyway, if one must be pedantic there are 4 types of football I can think of. Haven't you heard of rugby or Gaelic football?
There's also Australian Football.

^ True, and the mixed rules thing that the Gaelic Athletic Association and Australian Footballers play every few years.

All I'm saying is that if someone said to me "Hey, did you see the football match in the new Superman / Batman movie?" my mind would not immediately go to soccer, it would go to North American Football.

You mean either NFL or NCAA-rules football.

Says the Saskatchewan Roughriders fan living in Ottawa... ;-)

For you maybe. I'm a bit of an Anglophile and a soccer fan, so my first thought when someone says football is "which one?".

Here is a four minute clip of the game between Metropolis State University and Gotham City University.

http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=110452



Looks like there is going to be alot of subtle hints of rivalry

Football teams clashing

Batman and Superman clashing

Clark and Superman will probably fight over Lois.

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

Details on Batmobile and Batsuit:

http://www.darkhorizons.com/news/294...tume-batmobile

One edict - it will "definitely NOT have a military look like The Tumbler from Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy". More likely it'll be some kind of streamlined concept car. Production designer Nathan Crowley, and engineers Chris Culvert and Andy Smith have reportedly been consulting on the designs - not surprising as they were apparently involved in the creation of the Tumbler nearly a decade ago.

As of four weeks ago, the car was still just 'pictures on the wall' so nothing had actually been built yet. It's also said an "old Cadillac" will feature prominently in the film.

As for Ben Affleck's Batman costume? Comic Book Movie reports that the character's look is rumored to resemble that seen in the 2011 graphic novel "Batman: Noel" (pictured below). Other concepts were said to be explored, including a "Injustice: Gods Among Us"-style look, but many were rejected for being too similar to the Nolan-verse look.
