Default Is anyone else hoping they don't fight?

Now I'm not saying they need to be best chums and agree on everthing, in fact they don't have to like each other. But why do they HAVE to fight? If we really need to demonstrate Batman's importance, have him save Superman from Kryptonite or something. Avengers did the Superhero vs superhero fight, this could help differentiate this film from the marvel brand. Hell, even Ironman and War Machine fought when the latter showed up. I hope they go the other way and have them begrudgingly agree to work together.

^ I'm hoping it's a skirmish, like Hawkeye vs Black Widow

Something long enough to be fun, but short enough to be self-aware of the absurdity of it all.

I'm not against them fighting, as long as it's not done in some dumb way. Unfortunately, there are a million ways it could seem dumb and a million ways it could be awesome.

All right. A pinch of dumb is fine.

I believe he did. But it could happen in so many different ways.

I am hoping they will avoid a physical battle, and instead focus on strong verbal exchanges.

I agree, of course.

I must also point out that I giggled with joy when I realized that a boy scout would prefer to have them use teamwork (and I also thought of Supes' nickname at that point).

I would certainly like Batman to threaten Superman at some point and Superman just shake his head in disbelief. Hey, maybe we could get an ending like Rocky III

I hope they don't honestly.

Batman is my favorite hero,but I've never really cared for the idea that he's in any way capable of standing a chance against somebody as powerful as superman.

I DID however like the fight between them in TDKR,but only because of the history that they had together as friends and the fact that neither one of them really wanted to hurt the other.
It gives the fight more meaning than just pitting two heroes against each other for the hell of it.
There's not enough time in the space of a single movie to build that kind of relationship between them.

I am hoping that Supes will roll with the punches, giving Batman the illusion that they are actually landing. Then he stands still while Batman gives him a quick jab to knock him off focus (which hurts his own hand a bit).

Fight they must. It's like yin n yang... they fight each other n at the same time they need each other.

It's funny even though I think Woody acts more like Batman in personality, I think that thematically, Buzz reflects Batman.

Buzz is the self-absorbed hero who needs to be taken down a notch, and Woody is the one with internal insecurity who needs to be validated.

Seriously-Chris and Goyer should watch Toy Story for an influence on tone.

Normally, I wouldn't think a cartoon would be a good influence on what I hope is a dramatic movie, but Toy Story was deeper than the average cartoon, while still being fun. It nails the dynamic between two generally good individuals who do some questionable stuff in reaction to the other. And it doesn't favor either one. It's a tale of a difficult friendship and I think it would serve them well to watch it.

It develops both characters while not letting the plot go to waste.

I think it would take some type of grand threat to help unite the two. Or not

Indeed. The character development helps move the plot along nicely. Really great film making. I remember my mom even commenting on how superb it was back in the day and I didn't know what she was on about because I was a kid.

I think it would take something big as well. Especially if there is some sort of betrayal involved.

I really hope it doesn't happen. I like Bat Zeus more than anyone but on film? No, thanks.

Superman would obliterate Batman. I don't care what convoluted explanation they come up with but I sincerely hope they avoid doing that because no ridiculous reasoning will get me to accept that fight.

I don't envy these producers. They can't do anything bold without first considering all the butthurt they have to accommodate for. I didn't appreciate it till this year. More than any other of these cbms.
Snyder would have so much more fun on thor.

It's ok if Lex or the various other non powered or lesser powered villains superman encounters get him on the ropes but Batman of all people.
No Beuno.

They have to have some kind of physical confrontation.

You know they have fought multiple times. Batman, certainly did not get obliterated. Just slap a kryptonite ring on him and then we'll see who gets obliterated.

No, they don't. They can be antagonistic towards each other, which eventually evolves into a mutual respect, but a physical confrontation is not needed, and is rather cliché.

Yes, this exactly. Batman and Superman are both reasonable adults-physical violence is rarely their first choice, and while they might not agree on everthing and can have arguments, it doesn't need to come to blows

The context of this is 'the early days'. Both characters don't know each other, they will only know of each other. What they hear or summise themselves. They both have the best interests of their particular area at heart, so it's reasonable for each of them to be cautious and view the other suspiciously. Superman is clearly someone to watch out for given his powers and invincibility, and Batman's effectively the most dangerous man on the planet. So I definitely want to see a physical throwdown, and I'm sure we'll get one. After they 'get' each other, the conflict doesn't have to be physical.
