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

Johnson as John Stewart? No. That role must be filled by Idris Elba.

He has long been my pick to play Black Adam, though. I would love to see a Shazam movie get off the ground.

Well, no more crowded than the average X-Men movie.
But X-Men is an ensemble piece. This is theoretically the sequel to Man of Steel. Though its looking more like a Justice League movie if these rumours are true.

Ensemble?

In the first one, Professor X hugged home base, and Wolverine and Rogue were new acquisitions... A minute before the movie started the entire combat ready X-Men roster was Storm, Cyclops and Marvel Girl.

Thank you! For the longest time I was trying to recall what Jean used to go by in the old days but I just could not remember. True I could have googled it but it wasn't exactly a pressing issue for me

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

I've been hearing rumblings of The Rock talking with WB about a part in Superman/Batman. Most like for Doomsday, Martian Manhunter or Lobo. Wouldn't it be interesting if he was Lex Luthor though?

Edit:
I just read the previous page. Whoa, in talks to play Green Lantern???? And yeah I agree, he should be Black Adam.

Batman on Film says that Lex will be in this movie along with another Superman villain that they won't name. Claiming also that its very much a Superman film and that Bats and WW will be supporting roles. Little to back this up but it's been a reliable source in the past.

I really hope it's not Doomsday. Still waiting for Brainiac to appear in a Superman film too.

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

I would say the villains are going to be Luthor and Metallo.

John Corben/Metallo was a Sergeant in the US Army before becoming a super villain. I can picture the US and other world militaries being wary of Superman. Luthor and the US military can form a joint project in order to counter the "Superman Threat". John Corben can be the volunteer for the project. Similar to what we saw in "The Incredible Hulk" with Blonsky getting the super soldier serum to fight the Hulk.


As always I have scans! These are from the 2009 comic series "Superman: Secret Origin".





Luthor has had a hand in creating a number of Superman villains across many different continuities. Most notably Metallo, Parasite, and Bizarro. I can see the creative team of MOS 2 going this route.



With Metallo being powered by kryptonite, he'll have a good chance at beating Supes. I wonder if WW will be the one to beat Metallo in MOS 2. WW who is physically on par with Superman and has no vulnerabilities to kryptonite. Maybe we can see this happen.

Is it just me or does the Corben of those scans look like Kevin Bacon?

Well, rumor has it Wonder Woman is actually Kryptonian now (and weaker than Superman): http://badassdigest.com/2014/01/06/w...n-vs-superman/

That was just speculation on the part of Jett at Batman on Film. Most of what he said was just speculation, but it got picked up by other outlets as if he was passing along inside information.

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

That is true about Jett speculating, but remember the empty stasis chamber in the Kryptonian ship? Wasn't there a comic spin-off which had Supergirl as the former occupant of it (or maybe it was her ancestors?)?

Could it be that the film version will instead reveal that the person who left that chamber instead was the founder of Amazonian society?

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

Good thing that movies are not beholden to tie-in comics. Looking at YOU Star Trek 09 and ID.

If they do choose to make WW a descendant of I'd be ok with it. The warrior culture of the Amazon's and the all women society can remain untocuhed. All that would change would be where their powers come from. Classic WW and the amazon's receiving their powers through Divine Empowerment (rom Athena, Hestia, Demeter, Artemis, and Aphrodite. New52 WW be is the natural born daughter of Zeus and Hippolyta. Making her a demigod like Perseus, Achilles, and Hercules. A new adaptation of WW being kryptonian descendant isn't the worst thing in the world.
