Awesome: Batman vs Superman Is Happening

In his packed San Diego Comic Con panel, Man Of Steel director Zack Snider brought the house down this afternoon by announcing that the MOS sequel will feature Batman. Here’s the symbol that got the crowds going:

BatsSupes As if that were not enough, he then brought out actor Harry Lennix to read out the following lines:

I want you to remember, Clark…in all the years to come…in your most private moments…I want you to remember…my hand…at your throat…I want…you to remember…the one man who beat you.

In Frank Miller’s amazing graphic novel Dark Knight Returns, Batman has an epic fight against Superman and the above speech is from the final moments. It’s considered one of the standout stories in both franchises, so this could be very exciting indeed.

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmm I don’t know how I feel about this. If anything, this says to me that DC has a lack of confidence in Superman (Man of Steel made money, but nowhere near what they wanted) and since Batman is the only character of theirs that functions as a reliable printing press for money they are dragging him out when he, to be honest, needs a rest.

    Don’t get me wrong, it could be amazing, I just think they should maybe focus on getting Superman right rather than saying “HEY LOOK BATMAN IS HERE TOO!”
