Default LA Times is reporting that WB will announce World's Finest movie for 2015 - Part 1

Are you serious? That's the way the Batman-Superman logo has looked for years. Come on now.

I won't disagree there. Though that was before the prospect of a shared DC Cinematic Universe existed. So if such a thing did exist back then, who knows what they would've thought.

It could be, though that logo obviously isn't official. It could've just been a way to say Batman going to be in the next Superman film. Though honestly with this occurring, why wouldn't you use that logo?

Was that pertaining to a World's Finest team up or Justice League?

MOS 2 could make a billion. Either way, this feels like we've been cheated.

And in regards to dynamics, I'm no fan of how Batman is portrayed as the better hero. I prefer that they be portrayed as equals and not rivals..and I certainly don't want them to be stuck in a love triangle together with Lois.

Not to mention, I still don't see why Superman couldn't be given at least ONE solo sequel first before going down this route.

Batman and Superman are portrayed as equals in a lot of stories. I see no reason to why that can't be the case here.

I guess that Dark Knight Returns monologue really frightened people.

There are a lot of World's Finest comic books where the pair are equals. If they can focus on that, they'll be much better off.

If they focus on Timm's cartoon movie...oh boy.

If their relationship is portrayed similar to how they did so in Public Enemies, minus Batman being the one to save the day (as usual), then I'd be happy about it. Honestly.

I want to see a film where they end on good terms with each other, respecting the other person, and without a love triangle ever having been involved in the equation.

And yeah, Timm's Cartoon of the World's Finest, along with "The Dark Knight Returns", if this film ends up being anything like those films, then it's safe to say that Superman is screwed and I'd have no problem giving up on the franchise personally.

I wonder who the villains will be. Maybe Lex Luthor hires the Joker to take out Bruce Wayne while also creating Metallo to kill Supes...

Batman is paranoid by nature and will be suspicious of Superman at first. He's been preparing for such a confrontation since Zod appeared, so he will have a plan. Batman will be the antagonist at first, then they will team up against a common foe (I'm thinking Lex). WW cameo at the end to set up a Trinity movie.

I can't really even fathom how they'd castrate the Superman we just saw in Man of Steel. This guy's a complete badass. They won't actually go head to head, because as Snyder has pointed out in interviews it's laughable to suggest it. Superman would have to give in willingly like with the U.S. military.

If anything, this will show how uneven the characters are.

WB made a Jonah Hex and Steel movie before WW or Flash. Think about that for a moment.

Batman's a genius, he fights with his mind (and his cool toys).

I don't.

Superman was outsmarted by the Joker, needed to be saved by Batman a few times I think, Bruce was made into the love of Lois's life, etc.

And Batman got into trouble and needed to be saved by Superman a few times as well.

Sounds good to me. Lana is bound to be hotter than Amy Adams anyway. Batman can have Lois.

lol; true.

I guess what makes it even more irritating for me is that Batman was Lois's main love interest in that entire arc.

Oh, how I pray that this will not be the case for this film. Above all else, since I'm a strong advocate of the Lois and Clark/Superman relationship, please don't let me go down the SR route (minus the kid of course) where Lois is shown being happier with another person other than Superman.

Ugh! Knowing these people they will cast Keira Knightley of Charlize Theron as Lana. If Lois looks like Amy Adams then no to Lana and Diana.

As for the announcement, I'm just happy there is going to be a sequel, Batman can jump in all he wants as long as it is still Superman's story. Seeing as how they are calling it a Superman film, they have the same cast and same writers, and they said issues in MOS will be addressed, I'm content that this is still Superman's story.

I'm a massive Superman fan and that's never bothered me but okay, to each their own.
I, for one would love if this new movie followed the tone of that animated film. Serious, but fun and entertaining.

That had more to do with Superman underestimating the Joker than anything. And Superman saved Batman a few times in the movie as well.

I'll give you Bruce and Lois. That was kinda wack but what's wrong with Superman being outsmarted by the Joker?

Especially since Batman got outsmarted by him also and nearly got killed.

Okay, maybe it's just that Lois and Bruce thing that's clouding my judgment in the film's adaptation from Bruce Timm.haha

Well this has been therapeutic.lol

But Batman did the better of superman during their first encounter. Even though Superman threw Batman down, Batman threw him down first and ended it with using kryptonite on him.

They do this with tact. How can they have a World's finest when Superman is not introduced to the World yet? No one knows that his name is Superman. I am really not sure what the story will be like.

I loved that first encounter. I wish they could use the "I knew you were crazy. I didn't think you were stupid." line but that's probably impossible if they use an early in his career Batman whom everyone thinks is an urban myth. One can dream though
