This IS MoS2. And Snyder said right in that same sentence that they wouldn't be adapted TDKR, it would just help inform the film. Batman and Superman are never on good terms when they first meet.

Honestly I think this is a good way to introduce a new Bruce Wayne/Batman. People are taking it at face value waaaaayyyy too much. This will be a SUPERMAN FILM, first and foremost. I honestly don't see Snyder or WB jumping the shark by overloading and turning MOS 2 into a World's Finest movie. Bruce Wayne will be a primary player who, many forget, will introduce the GA to the new CEO Lex Luthor. Only at the end of the film will Bruce's true motivations be revealed, as well as the Batman identity.

Now, to the more important question that (shockingly) no one has brought up: Will he have a lead-lined cowl?

Priorities, people.

It wont take inspiration from Returns in terms of how theyre written or plot. The quote at comic con was only for that event to be dramatic.

True, but in the same time, can anyone tell me just how many times Superman has been portrayed right whenever he's shared the same screen with Batman?

I mean really, how many times has Superman been made to look like crap whenever Batman was on the scene in order to make the dark knight look like a badass simply because he was "human" and needed to show people that he could still take care of himself?

Not to mention, Superman will no longer be portrayed as the main protagonist of the film anymore and we won't get a story showing on how Superman became established as....well Superman since he was just on his way to doing so at the very end of MOS.

For anyone insisting it's MOS2:

From Superman's panel:

Quote:
Goyer recaps the major announcement from earlier today at the Warner Bros. panel: "We don't know what we're going to call it yet — 'Superman vs. Batman,' 'Batman vs. Superman,' — but those two guys on screen, that's happening."
It's not a ''MOS sequel".

I wouldn't worry about that. I think there will be element taken from TDKReturns but not the entire comic. If you think Snyder would be so stupid as to portray Superman as the hapless, douchebag, idiot that Frank Miller bastardized the character with in TDKReturns then I don't think you have much confidence in Snyder.

Snyder gave us the Superman film we've waited a generation for, he obviously loves the character. He's not going to butcher him by just Frank Millitarization him (see what I did there).

If that's what happens then I too would be beyond pissed. Eff Frank Miller, that PoS.

Well that's their relationship. You're right, Superman is going to look like Batman's ***** for a lot of the movie...but the main characters in these movies USUALLY look like *****es to the villains or other characters until the end when they go through their development and come out stronger characters.

And Superman WILL be the main protagonist. This is a MoS follow up, with all the cast from MoS. It will probably be set in Metropolis with Superman villains. Batman will just be involved. Watch the World's Finest episode from Superman TAS.

^ If they're smart, they'll have Batman near the 3rd act of the film as a human attempting to take Superman down using Kryptonite, believing he's a threat of some kind. When Batman realizes that Supes is being framed, he teams up with Superman to take the implicator down.

Wow, all this sounds a little to Iron Man 2ish for me to be comfortable :/

It's called denial.

The movie can be called "Batman vs Superman" and they still insist it's a sequel to MOS.

And I responded to you in the other thread. This does NOT mean it's not a MoS sequel, especially since Snyder ****ing called it a MoS sequel, and this is the second film in the trilogy Goyer was contracted write, which he's already said is a MoS sequel. Goyer is just saying there they haven't come up with a name for it yet. The movie does not have to be called MoS2 or whatever to be a sequel to MoS.

I guess maybe on the Batman boards they're calling it a new Batman movie with a cameo by some guy in blue tights.

Goyer is at the Superman 75 thingy at comic con. Says no title for the movie is set yet. And that Superman killing will be adressed in the film. That Clark will truly become Superman in the the film.

Snyder didn't call it a MOS sequel. he said "we're making another Superman movie!" meaning a movie that has Superman in it. This new Goyer quote confirms that this is a Batman vs Superman movie even more so than a team-up between the two. Even Snyder said in the official press release that the two are facing off.

Probably from the fact that Snyder said we will be making another superman movie. Then he said there is a single element that is in the film that he could help us out with. Cue the reading of the line from the animated movie and the photo of the shields.

That's not really inspiring.lol, considering that in the Animated WF's episode, Lois was Batman's love interest, Batman rescued Superman more times than I can remember, and Superman was more of an sidekick to Batman than anything else.

Yeah, that's a superman film that I want to see. I appreciate what Snyder did for the character, but whenever Batman is involved, I have yet to see one portrayal where superman is portrayed as his equal and where he doesn't lose Lois to Batman.

Snyder specifically said they're not adapting The Dark Knight Returns. They just used that quote because it was a cool way to introduce the fact that Batman is going to be in a Superman movie.

I can see why you'd be confused, but that was just his way of dropping the news. He said himself he was thinking of how to break the news because everyone already thought they were in process on the Man of Steel sequel.
