Yep. Sure did upstage the guy who saved, oh, 7 BILLION people from annihilation. Yessiree.
Did he save those people? I'm sure it was a nice bonus that came with snapping Zod's neck.

And the latest story rumor is that WW has actually been operating quietly in the real world for a while (presumably only as Diana), and that the reason no one ever mentioned Batman in MOS is because he's still only regarded as an urban legend, and had never even been photographed. Which is the explanation I was kind of expecting them to go with.
I saw that story but it suggested that Batman had been operating for 30 years and would be in his 50s in this film. Subsequent stories confirmed that he's in his 40s. So those reports may not be entirely reliable.

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

Yeah it's hard enough to buy Affleck being in his 40s, let alone his 50s.

I do really like the idea of many of these new characters already being established on Earth though (but just operating much more quietly and in secret). It feels a bit more plausible than if all these people just suddenly started getting superpowers after Superman showed up. Plus it avoids having to sit through a bunch of origin stories.

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

Well, since Clark is a reporter, maybe the movie starts with him looking into rumors of other heroes operating in the world.

Yes, I've always liked the idea of Batman being sort of an urban myth that nobody is really sure about.

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

I saw Haywire and In the Blood over the last two nights and I couldn't help but wish that Gina Carano had been Wonder Woman. Someone even made a jab at her and called her "Wonder Woman" in Haywire.





Looks like they're trying to set her up as one of the next big action stars but it hasn't taken. Being cast as Wonder Woman migh thave given her that boost.

Just a shoutout for Carano. I'm still looking forward to seeing Gal Gadot in the role.

I do too, but could someone like that operate for a decade or more and possibly fight off a rogues gallery and never be seen, especially in a world where Superman can barely keep a secret identity?

Yeah, I know. I must admit, I blow hot and cold on how well-known Batman is - I also like the idea of the Batsignal, Batmobile and other things which pretty much put him four-square in public knowledge.

I think the idea of Batman being seen as an urban myth probably works better in an origin story or one set early in his career (like the 1989 film) than one where he's been around for years.

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

Well I suppose even with a Batmobile, people might think the idea of a guy fighting crime in a bat costume is still just too ludicrous to take seriously, which is why he's mostly gone ignored all these years. Plus the fact Gotham is a dark and scary hell hole that most people do their best to avoid thinking about to begin with.

Yeah, but like most big-time Hollywood actors, he doesn't exactly look his age. (possibly thanks to HGH, Botox, etc.)

Or in his case, probably just really good genes.

So what do you know? The Dark Knight and Man of Steel blinked before Steve Rogers did!
