That was also a poor choice of title.

Sounds like an obvious and unimaginative prequel title to the Justice League.

This. Way too blatant.
How is this any worse than Captain America: The First Avenger?

When did I say that was a good title? :P

I can't wait for this dark, gritty, wangsty, broody mcbroodwalking three and a half hour long film.  My bet is that the climax will last an hour, involve a genocide of some sort, and we'll all walk out of the theater wanting to kill ourselves.

Knowing what's to come, we'll probably walk in with such a notion in our heads too.

I wonder if it'll be a "I'm Superman and you, batman, are evil!" until "Oh I'm sorry batman.  I thought you were evil but now I see you're better than me because you haven't killed anyone.... unlike me... "

Or maybe batman will come to metropolis (what's left of it) to kill superman because he's a menace to the world.  And rightfully so!  A fist fight can level a damn city.

I think it's going to be the other way around. Batman is going to try to bring Superman in for being a dangerous menace who wreaks destruction around him.

Only kryptonian vs kryptonian fist fights do that drama queen. Sheesh, you level one major metropolis and everyone is on your back.

Superman is working for the united states government and they have beef with Batman. Superman will then come face to face with batman and fight, a few times. During the fourth encounter they will realize how similar they are and team up to fight the real Big Bad, Lex Luthor.

Or some slight variation of this.

WB and DC should hire Snupes to make their movies.  She doesn't hate comic books!

Yeah, I saw that. Apparently he said some very sexist things about She-Hulk in the same podcast. I'm not even crazy about comic books but this guy seems like he shouldn't be anywhere near comic book movies.

How does Kevin Smith know all this stuff?  Is he somehow involved in making this movie?
Probably not, but it's very likely that he knows some of the people who are.
Abandon hope all ye who press enter here.

Science is what happens when preconception meets verification.

If you can't demonstrate it, then you shouldn't believe it.

This will brutalize Batman lore even more than the Burton-Schumacher tag team did.

I think Superman would just instantly kill Batman. Batman is just a guy in a suit who can do karate and stuff.

Superman doesn't kill. You are out of your depth.

This Superman apparently does.

But only when a small family will die.  When thousands will die?  Totally OK to fight to KO.

Apparently they plan to include The Joker. Since he was the Red Hood until he fought Batman it will be interesting to see how it pans out. I just prefer to think of it as an alternative universe Batman.

Also, Sean Pertwee, son of third Doctor Who Jon Pertwee is going to play Alfred. It's going to be awesome.
