Dawn of the Dead - 75 %

Im gonna guess it will land in the 70s then drop into the 60s for BvS.
Yeah, I agree. I'd be shocked if it ended up higher than the 60s.

45 is up there for athletes, but I think there's room to stretch things a bit in this movie. I imagine batman being batman into his 50s at least, so this is mid-career.

If it follows the tone of MoS then World's Finest would be the best title.

If it lightens up a bit and acknowledges that it's a movie about two superheroes teaming up or fighting then Batman/Superman would be the best title I think.

VS should never be used in a movie title unless it's.

A) ironic (Scott Pilgrim vs the World, Joe vs The Volcano)
B) A civil courtroom drama (Kramer vs Kramer)
C) A cheap marketing stunt (Freddie vs Jasopn, Alien vs Predator)

Out of those three which one do you think Batman vs Superman falls into?

I'm with you as I like the WF title, but the problem with that is the general population won't understand that reference. For that reason, I have a feeling that they are going to keep it simple. Like Batman Vs. Superman or something along those lines. I REALLY hope they don't go with "Vs" though. That just implies that they are going to be against each other the whole movie. Who knows though. Hopefully we will know for sure pretty soon.

I dunno. If he falls into a Lazarus pit then maybe I'd accept a 50 year old Batman.

I just don't like the idea of filmmakers taking inspiration from Dark Knight Returns as a serious material. It's not serious at all. It's bombastic, silly and over the top and that's why it's awesome fun.

I can accept a Frank Miller 50 year old Batman. If Snyder was going to make a full on adaptation of DKR with a 50 year old actor then I'd be all for it. I'd love to see that movie.

I just hate the idea of an old Batman in a serious DC film.

I think batman will be in his 40s in this movie. I think that batman's career should extend into his 50s, but it's more likely that he'll be in his 40s in BvsS.

I just think it's just the best title period.

It doesn't take a genius to make the connection.

As long as Batman and Superman are on the poster the audience will know what the film is about.

Exactly. I think it's funny that WB might be afraid that people won't know it's also a Batman movie unless they put "Batman" in the title somewhere, considering that the most successful Batman movie to date... didn't have "Batman" in the title.

I actually loved that episode and that interpretation. It was in keeping with their portrayal of the character. There was emphasis on Freeze's virtual immortality, and he was basically a robot in the show already.

I thought the spider legs were new and creepy.
Maybe i'm biased though. This was one of the first action figures I had as a kid:


Btw did anyone see this? Theres going to be a new line of Batman the Animated Series action figures!! I haven't bought an action figure in years, but I might have to get The New Batman Adventures Batman and Robin

For me as a kid, it was like "how the **** are you still alive if you're just a head?" I think it would have been better to have him have robotic legs and arms maybe to show how he's losing his body instead of having him be a head.

Also yea I heard about the Batman the Animated Series figures. I'm so getting the Batman figure. Love it. I hope they do a Dick Grayson Robin figure. I know they are doing New Batman Adventures Mr Freeze (might get) and Two-Face (prefer BTAS design). BTAS design Catwoman figure is coming out too.

I love it when they do things from my childhood.

Really? I thought the TNBA Two-Face design was far superior. I liked the sharper lines and better proportions.

Uh. I thought for some reason TNBA Two-Face had a green half face for some reason. I guess not.

Yea I guess I can't complain about TNBA Two-Face design.

Just looked it up, it was the Brave and the Bold Two-Face that had the green half face. Got confused.
