If they want to go with an older Batman then Jeffrey Dean Morgan would be great.

I agree. It works better if Batman comes more from the antagonistic point of view. Of course they won't get a long at first because these are two totally different men. Especially given the events of MOS, with what Superman caused, would invoke a response from someone like Batman. But I don't want this to be bogged down by cynicism where Batman is always owning Superman. Or cynical in terms of how much TDKR was. If MOS needed something more, it was a less somber tone. This is a story about two men with two ideologies coming together. Use that.

This hopefully should be a Superman movie but with Batman in it. There is no reason why they still can't continue what they otherwise could have done had this been a solo film. You can still make Clark have his journey and still put Batman in it. Since Goyer said they will be dealing with the repercussions from MOS, who better to make Superman own up to what he did than Batman? Killing Zod namely.

Once someone like Bruce takes notice of that, whether he saved the city or not, the fact he killed, showed what he is capable of if pushed to a point. Which is consistent as to what Snyder said last month in regards to killing Zod.

They probably will.

And people are free to voice their own ideas and concerns, but keep in mind this movie was announced yesterday. This movie might still be outlined or at the very beginnings of the first draft. Things change. Though it's easier to theorize about TDKR because of Snyder's self announced love of it.

But we just don't know yet. But just think, this time next year, we will know a lot more.

Superman's appearance creates concerns and skeptics, Batman being one of them. Superman has to adjust to his role as Earth's protector, deal with the world's reaction, and a vigilante who questions his role. It could all tie together, and do the job of introducing Batman for this new film universe.
Common freaking sense right here, people.

Would be cool to see Superman struggle to get anywhere near Batman and the lump of Kryptonite and then have Superman fly away and then a few seconds later Batman narrowly escaping being hit by a truck.

Truth is I think Batman would want to keep the fight in an enclosed space just so something like that couldn't happen.

Batman could also weaponize hypersonics on Superman. Plus some heavy armor. The Kryptonians were definitely effected by the gunfire. Not hurt perhaps but knocked around. Faora was knocked out by the missile in Smallville.

Foara was exposed to the atmosphere and fell unconscious, and she still didnt have a scratch on her. hell none of them had any scratches on them, no heavy Armour on earth can match krytponan one.

That sounds like Superman vs Batman: Total War than a World's Finest. But I suspect that's the kind of spectacle we might get.

Batman could weaponise the Kryptonite into a gas, paste or dart.

Depends how the effectiveness of Kryptonite is written. i.e. if it slow down Superman or completely incapacitates him.

I'm not keen on titling it Batman vs. Superman (or a variation thereof) either. They can convey that in the marketing campaign, rather than using the title alone as a hook.

Now I'm wondering what kind of threat would need both these guys, how big it will be, and how it will tie both their stories together. They won't just be fighting each other, I would hope. And is Lex big enough.

I think it will be less of a major threat, and more of batman wanting to see whats up with this superman guy at first. maybe helping him figure out somethings

I think they are going to have Batman and Superman in the title. It's a short hand to effectively marketing the movie. World's Finest means next to nothing to the general audience.

Man of Steel (some people make be lukewarm to the sequel): World's Finest (what's that?).

I would like to think Batman is in Metropolis to investigate Superman, Clark is investigating Batman in Metropolis, Superman is being set up by Luthor and they both come to realise this. Batman helps in a minor but critical way and Superman defeats Luther (by being accepted by the public) and defeats his henchman by being flamingly awesome.

So you don't think there will be a major villain? Besides Lex, such as Parasite, Doomsday, Metallo, Brainiac, Mxyzptlk? That it will just be about Superman vs. Batman?
