Re: Is anyone else not excited about Superman and Batman? I feel nothing but dread.
I think it's confusing to people because, even though the original cast of MOS is returning, it's not a traditional sequel. It's a sequel + a team-up/confrontation all in one. When you look at Nolan's Batman trilogy, there's a natural progression to those films as well as their titles. In several years, looking back on what could be a Superman trilogy, though, a middle film entitled Superman VS. Batman/World's Finest sort of goes against that aforementioned natural progression.

He is struggling against vagueness, against obscurity, against the lure of the decorative adjective, against the encroachment of Latin and Greek, and above all, against the worn-out phrases and dead metaphors with which the language is cluttered up.”
