    By the third act should be plenty of time to prepare.

    OK, somebody had to....

    That's the sort of creative bravery I don't expect from Synder.

    After the non fight with Doomsday on Smallville, I wouldn't mind seeing a proper slugfest in Dawn Of Justice. And with the possibility of Thanos in the thrid Avegners movie it's likely DC would put Darkseid in the JLA movie.

    Only if they think they can get the JLA movie out first.

    I'd imagine the exact opposite, as they wouldn't want to be seen "copying" them with the same general plot idea.

    Except for the fact that so far they seem to be doing their damn best to rip off the concept of the avengers without bothering to build the world the way marvel did

    The JLA movie is scheduled for 2017 and the third Avengers movie probably won't be out til 2018.

    So, they're ripping them off by not ripping them off?

    There was no fight against Doomsday in MOS was there? No, I was talking about the non-fight that Clark had against Doomsday on Smallville. :sigh:

    Ha, no kidding. If DC slowly built up the world over multiple movies the way Marvel did, people would just accuse them of ripping off Marvel even more.

    There's just no winning for them, apparently.

    Of course DC originated the team-up idea in the comics, and grouped together Superman, Batman and WW before Marvel did the same thing with their characters. So who's really ripping off who here? ;)

    Now there you go, pointing out things like historical facts again...flying in the face of carefully managed popular perception...

    Because most of the movie-going public, particularly the critics, are familiar with the history of such things and will know better?

    Except Marvel comics were always intended to be a shared universe. The superheroes in DC were in there own individual universes till they were all merged together.

    I get that, but, my point is that a slug fight is pretty much the same as any other slug flight. What would be the big difference? MORE buildings coming down? Metropolis becoming MORE of a wasteland?

    I guess... I just don't CARE. It'll be two CGI creations hitting each other. I'm not so taken with Doomsday that I need to see him exchange blows with Superman.

    I don't know this "Smallville" that you speak of.... ;)

    They were merged early on though. The first issue of All-Star Comics to star the JSA came out in 1940.

    IIRC, Hulk was shown to a comic book character in an issue of Fantastic Four, so the shared Universe idea was a bit spotty at first.

    I wasn't much of a fan of the Superman:Returns suit. Mostly in the area of the tiny little boy-panties they put Routh in. Sheesh, those things must've been cutting off circulation and causing his sperm-count to crash and to lose blood circulation in his ass.
