You top it by actually writing a good script this time around.

After getting a feel of each others personalities, there's a team-up action sequence. Superman does the heavy lifting and Batman does the ninja stealth stuff. Day saved, both shake hands and go their separate ways. Now that would be something.

Superman vs Faora was the highlight of the movie. The Zod one (besides the , you think you can threaten my mother ) not so much.

So , you have to start from there.

Anyone think that they had the Batman/Superman team up planned a long time ago and they utterly wrecked metropolis (and a satellite) so that Bruce Wayne would have an excuse to step in in the sequel? I guess they could've have just had Luthor in mind though.

This is exactly why a grappling gun swinging Batman can't really fit into a world of JL hyper-powered titans.

Jets. Nukes. Imaginary gadgets and guns. The only way to do this is to invent some crazy gadgets like the Sonar device in TDK.

Red kryptonite to turn Superman loco and then Batman steps in to take him down. It also means maybe Green Arrow will be in there like in the "Dark knight returns" cartoon movie.

I imagine there will be a bigger villain and Batman vs. Superman will only be temporary.

It would arguably be a good response to those who criticized supes for not "caring" in his fight with zod.
that fight is superior (supes vs zod) because is not the same good vs bad and leave people in it... it was a military guy without a mision and with no life purpose.....

Presumably, the big Superman-Batman fight wouldn't be the finale, the finale would presumably be the two of them joining forces to go after Lex (or whoever) or whatever villain Lex uses as his "dragon".

But as for the Superman/Batman fight... I think it'd be cool if it was more a battle of wits than a battle of strength. Batman could keep deploying various gadgets (a supersonic beacon thing to mess with Clark's superhearing, for example) or taking advantage of surroundings, but Superman would keep coming at him, until finally the two realize how they are both dolts being played and decide to put aside their differences.

It's true. Hopefully now that it's done, Peters will be a good boy. What did Smith think of MoS, anyway?

You watch the original Superman II and how the battle somehow had more effort without destroying 75% of the city and he dealt with 3 at the same time.

Basically, this is what I was gonna say. While I loved the epic brawls in MOS, I'm looking forward to a "battle of wits" between the two heroes as well as (presumedly) Lex Luthor's "defeat" somehow actually positioning him into the White House as a way of setting up the MOS sequel.

I dont think they can top the action in MoS, but they can have it be just as good, only on a smaller scale.

You could have Lex and joker team up. Lex has some muscle, Metallo, or parasite.
Supes goes to gotham as Clark, following up on a lead and investigates some going on's of Lex, and in the process steps on Bruce waynes toes.
They have words. Bruce is partners with Lex in rebuilding metropolis, and he doesnt yet know what Lex is up to.
Bruce says something to the effect about how Clark helped destroy Metropolis and that he should mind his own business.
Clarks mouth drops. in anger he responds in a whisper, at least I dont hide in the shadows at nite, like a coward. It's Bruce's turn to be the one thats surprised.

Then the fun starts when Lex and joker start their bit, forcing Supes and Bats to team up.

A 13-hour struggle of Superman attempting to win back the popularity that Batman stole decades ago.

Who says they have to? This idea that a sequel has to 'top' its predecessor is a bit of a fallacy and really isn't something that ought to be consciously strived-for, IMO, because it sets a ultimately impossible standard.
