Default Re: "...a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent": Does this not worry anyone els

Why can't a Batman the same age as Superman have the smarts to take him on?
I don't think it has to do with his smarts. I think it's going to have more to do with his worldview and what experience has taught him. I.E, strategic cynic VS hopeful reactionary.

Why does Batman need to be older and have a headstart to be on the same level as him? Batman and Superman have always been equals in the DC universe.
And who says they won't be here?

This is what bugs me the most. It makes Batman look really bad to suggest that the only reason he is the smartest man in the JL is because he got a head-start of about a decade.
Where is anyone suggesting that?

That means this Batman was as weak as Nolan's Batman was in BB/TDK when they were about the same age and started their careers. Maybe not as weak, but it means that we are again getting a watered down Batman - just that it won't be as noticeable this time due to him having more experience. Personally, I'm tired of watered down versions of Batman on the big screen.
Where's the logic in this? Where has anything suggested that this version of Batman will be "watered down"?
