Default Re: Do you think Batman will hamper MOS2?

For me, it all comes down to marketing. They need to play this right or they'll piss off a lot of people. If this is a World's Finest movie, go all the way and do it. Give them equal screen time and show them at their best. Show what makes them the two most awesome superheroes on earth and why they are so different at the same time.
And let the fans know what this is. If they play it as a Superman sequel and batman shows up making Superman look like an idiot, Supes fans will be pissed off. If they play it like a team up movie and batman doesn't have enough screen time, the batman fans will freak out. They just really need to figure out what they're doing, and sell it that way. It's when expectations are not met that franchises crumble.
Having said that, I'm really excited for this movie. It will get my money. But being a life long Superman fan above all others, I'm a little bummed we won't be getting Superman's "Dark Knight" from the looks of it.
