Default Re: Is anyone else not excited about Superman and Batman? I feel nothing but dread.

The concept is fine, it's the execution that has me concerned. Goyer needs to write a more heroic Superman and write a different Batman (more World's Greatest Detective than World's Biggest Sulker).

If done right, the film can be stellar, but I don't want to see outright confrontation between them for the whole movie, more something like the dynamic in a cop buddy movie where the young urban hotshot and old rural veteran detective are forced to team up despite their differences but have mutual respect by the end of the film. Lethal Weapon with superheroes.

Bruce Wayne: [while on a boat surrounded by beautiful Russian ballerinas] You going to be all right Alfred?
Alfred Pennyworth: [beat] You can tell them the Russian for "apply your own bloody suntan lotion."
