They should film this scene




What is this taken from? I'd be curious to read the rest of the story.
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.
Thanks. Found it in digital format. A fun issue.

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

At the end of the story, we see a reproduction of the cover art for the Silver Age story.

Y'know, the more I think about it, the more I realize I would have preferred Josh Brolin (especially over Ben Affleck). I am willing to give Affleck a shot, though.

I don't think Brolin can be blamed for Jonah Hex.

^Affleck can't be blamed for Daredevil either, but that hasn't stopped the fan rage.

That was indeed my point . . . .

As I saw someone else put it online, Affleck gets tarred with Daredevil, but Brolin gets a free pass for Jonah Hex?

That's because nobody's seen Jonah Hex.

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

I think the difference for me is that Brolin did a good job as Jonah Hex; it was the movie surrounding him that was the problem. I don't feel the same way about Affleck as Daredevil. When watching the director's cut, I actually see something of a reverse situation - a better movie surrounding Affleck.

I'm not an Affleck-hater, but I do think there's a bit more of a case to be made there. Daredevil was a bigger movie, and it was a similarly dark and edgy character like Batman-- which Affleck was not exactly the most believable at playing.

Although I realize that was 10 years ago, and he could probably pull it off a bit better now.

I didn't like Affleck in Daredevil, I didn't mind Brolin in Hex.

I am willing to Affleck a chance, but he has been the weak link in anything I have seen him in up until now--but I haven't seen him for a while.

While I can see Brolin as Batman, I cannot see him as Bruce Wayne, he just doesn't have those pretty boy looks.

They should have hired Brolin to play Batman and Affleck to play Wayne.
