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

The sequels both had a lot of good ideas I thought, and I actually consider the third film to be a worthy follow up to the first.

As a kid I really loved Robocop 2, I think the final fight between both robots is still pretty fun to watch, but the movie as it is is a huge mess, too many plotlines vying for time while the main character almost turns into a secondary character in his own movie.

Anyways, as to the thread title:

I finally saw 'Man of Steel' on Monday, while I won't pull this thread off course with a huge review, I will say I enjoyed it, but had a few issues with the pacing.

Now having seen it, I am a little disappointed we can't get a true sequel to the film, and by that I mean another solo outing for Supes, I think Henry Cavill made a great Superman/Clark Kent and would love to see him be able to expand in the role. I have no doubt a great story can be made with Superman meeting Batman, but part of me will always be wishing it could have been a solo outing.

The thing I'm looking forward to is how Trey Parker and Matt Stone deal with Afleck's casting. I hope the towns people of South Park go nuts.

They did an episode that was very complimentary of him after Argo. I could be wrong but I think they've said all they plan to say about him.

There's been a new episode since Argo came out? It feels like it hasn't been on in a year... and I know they're producing fewer episodes a year now, too. I think it's ten in one shot rather than seven and seven?

Sequel? I'm sorry, I think you're mistaken. There was only ever one RoboCop movie made.
Well, one movie and one TV series. That's all that counts for me. Although...

The second film had a pretty decent first act, but then it degenerated into mindlessness. As for the third, it had its moments, and was certainly better than the second, but it certainly had its weaknesses.

It does deserve credit for that from a technical standpoint. The battle between RoboCop and RoboCop 2 is probably the last great stop-motion animation set piece in cinematic history, or certainly one of the last. It was only 3 years later that Jurassic Park came along and rendered stop-motion obsolete (thanks, ironically, to Phil Tippett, the same person who animated the RC2 stop-motion scenes).

And then later came the dark age when movie dinosaurs started to look like crap for some reason.

I felt that way at first. But the more I thought about it, the first "Man of Steel" had Superman teaming up with a number of characters to stop the bad guys. They just weren't wearing any capes. I'm sure Batman will feature more into the story and command more presence on screen than Superman's human allies in the first film, but I imagine (and hope) that the next movie will be along the same lines.

Agreed. I'm fairly excited at the idea of a Batman teamup, but Superman's story was just barely getting started in the first movie, and it feels like a shame we that we won't get to see it continued in a more natural way, with a story focused solely on him.

Of course... I felt the exact same way about SR back in the day, so I guess I should be happy we're getting any followup movie at ALL this time. Lol

Yeah, I don't remember an episode about Ben Afleck since Argo and I watch South Park religiously. This being the big news it is, I doubt they will stay silent, but I could be wrong.

Just adding my voice to the chorus, I too wanted at least one more solo Superman movie before they teamed him up with Bataman or another character.

I guess the studio is nervous. Casting a controversial actor to play Batman will also help pull people into the theater to see how Affleck does in the role.

Going Native:
  • "Going Native" is the eleventh episode of the sixteenth season of the American animated sitcom South Park, and the 234th episode of the series overall. It premiered on Comedy Central in the United States on October 17, 2012.

    Butters begins acting out at school, beating up a fellow student seemingly without provocation, and then later excoriating his male classmates for being stuck-up and disingenuous, save for Kenny, who he says is the only one with any dignity….

    When asked if his anger has subsided, Butters admits that he is still jealous of Ben Affleck, who, in addition to being very handsome and married to Jennifer Lopez, is a good film director. When informed that Affleck is "just" married to Jennifer Garner, Butters' anger is assuaged, and he walks off into the sunset with Kenny, content.

I'd say we haven't even had a solo Superman movie yet. We've had the adventures of Jor-El, Last Father of Krypton, and his intrepid allies Lois Lane, the US military, and Jor-El's occasionally helpful son.

Jor-El and his AI "ghost" did steal the movie, didn't they?

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

Any bets on how long Bruce Wayne takes to figure out exactly who Clarke Kent really is? And vice versa?

Probably depends on who meets who first, right?

Bruce would recognize Clark as Superman.

Superman would recognize Batman as Bruce.

Superman and Bruce would be pretty neutral unless Bruce has seen pictures of Clark before.

And of course Clark and Batman would recognize each other.

Hoe does it usually go in the comics?
