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

Yeah, as much as I love the harder edge of MOS, I do think it's a shame that it probably also makes the movie too intense for younger kids to watch. And I imagine BvS won't be much different in that regard.

Although as you say, I probably wouldn't want my 6 year old watching the Nolan Batman films either.

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

Well, there is a fair amount of Superman material available for the younger set. It's not a bad thing to keep some of it for when they're older.

Maybe the Chitauri from the Avengers have made it to the MOS verse. You know they only cared about blowing up cars.

Heh. No one claims Whedon is in the same class as Michael Bay when it comes to blowing up stuff.

Well, in the tv show Angel, Whedon did sentence all of Los Angeles to be overrun by demons with no way for civilians to escape. At the same time, he basically killed off the few people that could save them, without any real way for the remaining heroes to survive. According to wikipedia's numbers on the population of Los Angeles, that's about 4 million people dead. Sure, the later tie in comics BS'd their way out of that idiotic ending, but based strictly on what's shown on screen, he killed everyone in Los Angeles, which beats MoS's death count. It may not have been explosions, but I'm pretty sure Whedon killed off more civilians than people like Bay or Snyder have, so...he wins, I guess.

That's mainly fan-fantasy which was later 'confirmed' (and then promptly retconned) by the comics continuation. The episode itself doesn't show LA destroyed at all. It shows 1 mass of demons attacking the heroes in an alleyway, and it ends before the fight even begins (so, technically, you can't even say he killed the people who could stop it). The only serious civilian casualties I can think of on Buffy or Angel was the fight in Graduation Day where a few dozen people died, at most. Maybe the chaos following the unmasking of Jasmine, but that was mostly people running around in confusion, not attacking each other.

Of course, Dollhouse eventually turned into an apocalyptic world war.

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

One hand-waving explanation for kryptonite is that it occurs in small amounts in the Kryptonian atmosphere and Bats is able to extract it.

In the comics, is Wayne generally treated these days as roughly the same age as Clark or older? Seems that in the last thirty years Clark's lost most of a decade but Wayne's career and life suggests a more mature guy.

The Comic generally treat them as peers but year they seem to have put a gap between them.

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

Of the 'Then and now' pics posted by All Star Enterprise, the 1989 Batman outfit has (IMHO) aged the best and seems to have proven most influential on other big screen comic adaptations.

I'm sure they now use lighter and more flexible materials etc. and in some ways it's dated. However, by-and-large, it's proven to be something of a template for superhero costumes in films. It's a decade younger than Reeve's or Carter's costumes but it seems to have more in common with the modern day Superman/Batman/Wonder Woman costumes from 25 years later than it has with the two alongside it.

I'm not a fan of the direction that DC is taking their cinematic universe, but they are damn fine at designing costumes. I can't fault them for that.

If they're not going to go with the original origin of Green K, I think a simpler explanation would be just to say it was a byproduct of the attempted terraforming, and can be extracted from the geology surrounding the busted up World Engine.
