Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Recommended Posts

BURBANK, CA, July 20, 2013 – On the heels of the worldwide success of “Man of Steel,” director Zack Snyder is bringing together the two most boring Super Heroes of all time—Batman and Superman—for the first time on the big screen. The announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, and Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution,Warner Bros. Pictures.


The I have no idea why it's a current hit, “Man of Steel,” has taken in more than $630 million at the worldwide box office to date, and climbing. Along with its star, Henry Cavill, the upcomingfilm brings back Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane. The new Batman has yet to be cast.


Snyder is co-writing the story with David S. Goyer, who will then pen the screenplay. Production is expected to begin in 2014, with an anticipated release date in Summer 2015.


Silverman stated, “Zack Snyder is an incredibly talented filmmaker, but beyond that, he’s a fan first and he utterly gets this genre. We could not think of anyone better suited to the task of bringing these iconic Super Heroes to the screen in his own way.” Kroll added, “We are thrilled to be back in business with Zack and his team on this next movie. The I have no idea why it's a success of ‘Man of Steel’ is a wonderful testament to the love and support that both fans and new audiences, worldwide, have for these characters. We are very excited to see what Zack has in store for all of us.”


Snyder continued:


It’s official that we are going to make another Superman movie about a guy who's not really Superman. And you say, Zack, what is the movie about? But you don’t want me to tell you that. You want to go and see the movie. But I can say that maybe there’s a single element that will be in the film that I could… help you out with. I was thinking about how to do that. I pored through the DC Universe to look for a way to tell this thing. We’re writing the thing now, but I came across a thing I found that’ll help you understand it.


And then Harry Lennix read this line, from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns: “I want you to remember, Clark, in all the years to come, in all your most private moments, I want you to remember your hand at your throat. I want you to remember the one man who beat you.” That’s Batman speaking to Superman from the end of Miller’s story, and that quote blew the roof off Hall H.


Snyder said “we’re not adapting this thing, but it is the thing that will help us tell that story.” So while the logo he showed on screen, pictured above, uses the bat logo design from Miller’s work, this won’t quite be a direct adaptation.

I think it's inspired casting if it's true. Also, what's the "tentpole" for the WB next summer supposed to be?




Nevermind. It's apparently another remake of Godzilla.

Wh..what? Why? Don't get me wrong, I loved Bale, he is definitely the best live action Batman.

But, he retired. Blake is now Batman, you'd have to disregard the end of the last movie.

Just let the Nolan trilogy be what it intended to be, standalone. Casting a new Batman is the only sensible move.

Man, WB's desperation is palpable. Just goes to show they have absolutely no idea of what they are doing. The only savings grace is that Bale is probably one of the few actor's out there principled enough, and more over crazy enough to turn down $50 million.


Next they are going to try and have an animated Batman voiced by Kevin Conroy up against the reanimated corpse of Christopher Reeves.
