TDKT and MOS just feel like more "adult" movies. But at the same time, kids can appreciate them. I think Marvel is underestimating their audience. Kids are going to see their movies regardless of whether there are dumb kid-aimed jokes or not.

Not really, they planned Batman to show up in MOS 2 long before MOS had its first review, so it wouldn't feel imposed at all.

Drew Magary clearly wasn't impressed with the film, interesting way to go about all of this though. He could have just joined a forum and made a post like the rest. The funniest part is how it all comes down to Snyder. Looks like the stars aligned and drew found his opportunity.
Wow, what an ignorant little prick. He should really get his facts checked out. Superman's hardly "happy-go-lucky" in the modern era, not since the 70s-80s especially with the new 52 taking him back to his Golden Age personality as well as that he should check out "Death & Return of Superman" or "Kingdom Come". Honestly, why is it that there's some consensus belief that Superman's personality is akin to Captain Marvel's/Shazam's?

I'd like to give him a piece of my mind, can I have an email please?

Did that Drew whatever just confuse Snyder with Ratner? How many reboots has Snyder been a part of?

I agree with everything. Again.

It always gets my goat when people complain about DC movies not being kid-friendly. There's nothing wrong with having some more adult CBMs. Older kids can still watch DC anyways.

I agree! To me the humor is more natural while Marvel does have the odd funny, but it's overdone where i feel it's too childish or unnatural.

Why cant there be CBM's for adults?? There's enough of them to go around for decades to come, for the kids. Some Marvel movies have a good balance for all ages and im sure that's what we'll get from the Batfleck era. Even Burton's had that balance but Shumacher was all about the kids. Nolan's movies were definitely made for adults and the humor reflects that.

Same here. Or the friends that enjoy comics but aren't so obsessed with reading them that they'd rather watch movies of them instead. I find they cant take how corny the old Supeman movies are or the current Marvel flicks but they enjoy TDKT and sometimes even MOS.

This is a good point, but I think the main concern is that the addition of these heroes doesn't overshadow Superman's sequel. The focus needs to be on him and stay on him. I don't mind the additions, but if their inclusion takes away from the main story then I think that will be problematic.
Which is all well and good. ASSUMING this is what will happen, though...that is what many are doing...and that I take issue with.

But when you have to wait years for a legit Superman movie (let alone a franchise) the second movie has rumors of not 1 but 4 other heroes in it…

Plus baddies, plus secondary characters of Superman plus rumors of other secondary characters for the 4 other heroes…

A Superman fan starts to feel some kinda way about that. And may start saying things like, "This isn't a Superman movie anymore".

I can empathize with that.
See, I don't. Because that's just such one-sided thinking. Instead of going, "Wow, my favorite character/Superman is going to have THE coolest superhero movie EVER" and being proud of that fact, people are whining about it.

Exactly. There's an awful lot of assumption based on nothing but rumor and guesswork. About the only "guest star" we know for a fact will be in the movie is Affleck as Batman. End of story.

I wonder if he gave Nolan the same **** for making his Batman movies gritty. If he praises him for that...he just opened up a can of worms.

Not necessarily. Some people are just sick of every franchise doing what Nolan did, so they pick on Man Of Steel, Amazing Spider-Man, James Bond, etc.

Unlike with batman, both MOS and ASM faced following up to beloved installments to a degree. Goes some way to explaining why both got similar "tired of nolan" detraction.

If only like batman, they had followed stuff that wasn't "amazing balls."

Holy crap.

Probably one of the stupidest and least influential OPINION pieces I have heard in 2013. The guy who wrote that sounds like a douche.

I'm a fan of Nolan, but I'm not impressed by other people trying (re: failing) to be Nolan.

Star Trek into Darkness is a good example of a failed Nolan imitation.

Unfortunately (or fortunately) I happen to be well versed in the comics, so that is going to influence what I like in CBMs. I don't begrudge anyone who wants the pairing.... I just think all of y'all suck!

But the comics support them having a relationship...even older comics have toyed with the idea.

I know this Guard, but Supes and Wondy are too boring as an item. There was a reason they have not been paired for the 50-some-odd years they have both been in existence.

I'm sure there are people trying to imitate Nolan, but sometimes I think people are too quick to accuse everyone of that. Nolan didn't invent the concept of serious or "gritty" movies and they shouldn't be off limits to others just because of his style.

Superman and Wonder Woman are more like brother and sister, in my eyes. Bruce and Diana is a much sexier relationship.

In all seriousness though, I too prefer the Diana & Bruce pairing. I was really disappointed with the issue that decided to put a stop to it as far as the comics go.
