Logically this film is a MOS sequel with a guest appearance from Batman.
If this is a full out Versus film someone will be painted in a bad light. Someone will lose.
There needs to be a powerful villain or army of villains.
Goyer said Superman will be realized. The WB say that there will be a face off. Snyder put a Worlds Finest logo.
All those three scenarios conflict with each other.
Because, like I said before, they want to have their cake and eat it. Their intent, I think, is to stuff quite a bit into just one movie, which will be a pretty daunting task especially if this thing clocks under three hours.
"The first truth of Batman...
It had to be one I don't like to admit.
The gunshots left me alone.
For years I was alone in the echoing dark of that well.
But something else defined the exact moment Batman was born.
The first truth of Batman...
The saving grace.
I was never alone.
I had help."
