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

For the vast majority of film viewers, the ONLY criterion that is of any importance is: Did this movie entertain me? If the answer is YES, then, for them, it's a good movie. It's really just that simple. So, movies that "divide the critics/fans", like Abrams' Trek films, or MoS or (fill in the blank with your personal pet peeve that still sold oodles of tickets) are generally not divisive among the general population. They are either good (I was entertained), bad (boring is usually the worst problem there, or unfunny if a comedy) or meh (it was ok). And box office usually reflects those three categories.

Film critics, film students and fans of a franchise, director, genre--they don't necessarily fit one of those three broad categories--but they also rarely represent anything but a small fraction of the general audience. And the studio cares A LOT more about the general audience than any of the subsets listed in the previous sentence.

LOL $600,000 total would basically cripple any Superman movies for the forseeable future

It would need to be an extremely limited release to make this little money, though. Like, 8 theaters total.

They do in the comics. Very much so. And they have done so in animation, too. This will be the first time they're on screen together in a live action movie.
In fact, Superman and Batman first crossed over on the Superman radio series in 1945, years before they first crossed over in the comics. The radio show often brought in Batman as a guest hero when Superman's portrayer Bud Collyer was on vacation.

Superman and Batman have been part of the DC Universe in the comics for as long as it's existed as a continuous universe. Of course they were founding members of the Justice League of America in the early '60s and have usually been part of its roster ever since. They also appeared as core JLA members in Super Friends throughout the '70s and early '80s, and in multiple different Justice League animated series and movies from the '90s through the present.

Of course, the different adaptations in which superheroes appear are all different "universes" retelling the story in different ways, so yes, there have presumably been filmic universes in which one hero existed but the other didn't. It's a safe bet that the version of Batman from the Christopher Nolan films exists in a universe without a Superman. On the other hand, the George Clooney Batman did mention Superman in Batman and Robin, and I think the previous film alluded to Metropolis. And there's a passing reference to Gotham City in Superman Returns.

Sure, but that's the established version I'd have loved to see react to the introduction of a Superman now.

Guess putting out the building fire wasn't too important. People will love the continuing idea that Superman doesn't care about property damage as in Man of Steel.

Anyway, this is still pretty cool.

Why can't a developer make a first person open world video game like this? I think it would make a great Superman game.

I kinda hope it isn't. I'd like for them to be done with the rubber suits and the armor stuff.

Really, I'd rather that they went back to basics and did somthing like this (but Affleck probably isn't quite big enough to pull it off).



I hope the new suit is something closer to the comics.

They used a helicopter drone (gasp!) with an HD camera and green screened in Superman. You can see the green tint on his hands in some shots. Doesn't take away from the fun!

Get Uwe Boll to direct. That's about what his movies gross these days.

I really like the new 52 Batman --combat gear-- suit. It would make a great realistic movie costume. The armor is underneath the fabric and segmented so he can move around. I am not sure how the cowl would transfer to the real world though.
