Call me crazy, but I'd actually be open to something like that. As long as it's not encumbered by cliche, a little lightheartedness might actually do the franchise (or even the genre) some good.

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

I have said this before I think the first Iron Man movie struck the right tone. Humor and drama along with action and adventure. These are comic book movies after all. I found those elements missing in the Nolan Batman trilogy and sure wish the next Batman/Superman movie would lighten up just a bit.

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

Comic book movies don't have to all be the same. There's room for different approaches. Superhero movies have been lighthearted since their inception so I'm happy to see what a more serious/naturalistic approach looks like.

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

Since they've moved forward with casting Affleck, I'm anxious to see some production pics. In my opinion, it could be either a mind-blower, or another typical WB/DC trashcan flick that just doesn't work.

We'll see.

Maybe Clark wouldn't feel as awkward if he took his glasses off before going to bed....

Then how would we be able to distinguish him from Bruce Wayne?

Silly Christopher, that'd be fun.

Superman/Batman Annual#1. It shows how the two heroes met and started working together after they were forced to share a suite together on a cruise ship due to some mix-up. In the middle of the night the ship is attacked and the two spring to action in their way and eventually start working together to stop the crisis, before that their "alter egos" clash pretty good on the ship between Clark's midwest charm and manners and Bruce's "persona" of the self-involved billionaire. Pretty bizarre but decent issue.

It's a call back to an earlier story from the Silver Age.

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

I wouldn't mind some more of that screwball-flirting Kidder & Reeves had. As others said, Downey found a pretty good tone/voice for IM and I think Affleck could do similar. Nor sure about Cavill/Adams though.

Actually, one of the best things about MOS was the chemistry between Cavill and Adams, IMHO. Perhaps not quite Reeve/Kidder or even Cain/Hatcher but way better than Routh/Bosworth. On the basis of other performances I've seen Amy give, I think she could handle that sort of banter quite effortlessly.

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

Zack Snyder was asked at ComicCon, last year I believe, who would win in a fight.

http://youtu.be/2L8q7dY2MnU

I think this is a good sign. It means we wont have a protracted fight between the two heroes that eats up twenty minutes of the film.
