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

Gah, I'm really excited to see Ben Affleck's Batman suit. One of the great things before the delay was that an official photo was imminent. Now it looks like things have been pushed back in terms of revealing anything. Which is fine, but I'm impatient, dammit. Show us the damn suit.

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

Personally I'm hoping for a move away from the 'all black' look that has personified ALL of his movie appearances since 1989.

I can understand the movie producers are all probably wary about associating with the Silver Age look for reasons of not wanting to appear campy, but I'd love to see a Batsuit which incorporates his classic gray palette somehow. Maybe something like how he actually appeared in his very first comic book appearances, with gray armor and a black cowl:

I remember a pretty grey silver look from Batman & Robin.

Well, yeah. But the realization of it was tacky.

If I recall correctly, wasn't that B&R version predominantly bright blue with silver trimmings?

It isn't so much the color, more how they use it.

They could easily adapt the 'original' Batman color template to a Man Of Steel style costume.

I just hope they do something different to 'all black'. That look was kind of cool 25 years ago, but I am hoping to see a new visual interpretation of Batman for film.

The gray palette worked perfectly in Batman:TAS, and didn't do anything to detract from the serious nature of the character.

I liked the Young Justice take on Bats' look.

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

I think a design like what they use in the Arkham games could translate well to live action.

We may see something like that but without the trunks like in The New 52.

If this is anywhere close to the real plot then I think it sounds pretty promising. I was wondering how they'd fit Aquaman into the plot and this rumor would make sense.

I'll take it with a grain of salt for now, of course, but the rumors could have been worse.

Yeah, that stuff actually isn't as ridiculous sounding as a lot of these kinds of story rumors often are.

Lose Dick Grayson/Robin/Nightwing and I'd be sold on everything else. I'm sorry but there is no way to thread the needle of the Boy Wonder in a serious Superman/Batman/JLA film.

^ There's not only no need for it here but it sounds stupid; like something from Miller's deranged Dark Knight Strikes Again fever.

I really don't think there's any danger of the film drawing inspiration from DK2. Do you?

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

They always seem to walk a tightrope with these superhero things. Even when they get it right on the 'reboot', the studios have got a habit of getting it so very wrong on the sequels.

I still remember walking out of Spider-Man 3 wondering what happened to the spirit that gave us the superior 1 & 2. It's like Sam Raimi finally got sick of all the studio's stupid memos about things they wanted included, and just said "Ok you guys, let's make that crappy movie YOU want to make! You want three villains? We can do three villains. It'll be complete shit. But hey! It's your franchise!"

It's like, nobody in Hollywood ever learnt the lesson of where Batman Forever and Batman & Robin went wrong. Over egging the recipe is the problem. I hope they haven't done that with this idea of an Ultimate Crossover Of Ultimate Ultimateness here...
