Dawgonnit! That's what I want. A MOS movie that HAPPENS to have Batman in the plot.

A true World's Finest would be great, but that should occur AFTER Metropolis/the life of Clark is fleshed out. And I would actually want Snyder to direct that one.

Tbh I totally understand why any true fan of MoS would feel that way.

But us hardcore Bat-fans can't help but want what's best for "our guy" too. It really is something of a conflict of interests, but I hope to hell they can pull it off and not alienate either side.

THIS is how Batman vs. Superman would go down, haha (harsh language) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-TbFzXdNwM

Dude. I LOVE Batman. I feel like the Nolan trilogy were generally good films that HAPPENED to have Batman in them, and not so good BATMAN films.

I am planning on reading more, but I can't get enough of what I've read from the pages. Batman is such a nuanced character. He's like hero meets anti-hero meets detective meets ninja..etc etc.

And I want him to be a relatively minor character. Doing so prevents OVEREXPOSING the character and giving audience a sense of "been there, done that." It allows for Superman to have his own movie, and for the franchise to work on its own.

But it also serves as a testament to how effective Batman can be as a stand-alone figure, even without having a narrative built around him.

In the film adaptation of DC:The New Frontier, Batman has a really minor role from what I can remember. But that moment when he warns the Manhunter of his ability to exploit the weaknesses of his opponent portrays the duality of the character very well.

Splitting up the narrative compromises the franchise, and takes the focus away from developing Clark Kent and the emotional themes established in the first film.

And it also risks the audience attaching to Batman more.

That's a disservice to both Batman and Superman. It means another hero is stealing the spotlight from Supes in his own movie, but also that said hero is not getting the attention he'd be due in a team-up film.

The pattern should be Batman / Superman, then MOS 2 is a solo film, kinda like how IM 3 followed the Avengers.

what if its kinda broke down into two films before they meet. each side would then be satisfied I would think..you cant have it all.
Maybe spend 40/45 mins or so on batman and superman, each would have their own mini movie. each would be in their own city. Maybe joker and lex are the villains and they team up, causing supes and bats to meet up about halfway through.
the spotlight is then shared.
I truly think this film will need to be at least 2.45 mins long..the disservice would be to shorten this down.

Side note. I hope the ''shaky cam'' is thrown away for this...far away.

Are Superman and Batman going to spend the entire movie fighting each other in the MOS sequel?

How will this lead into the Justice League when they're on the same team?

Sometimes writers forget that Batman is human and Superman is an alien.

I also like Mike Carlin's statement about writers needing to keep their egos in check because Superman matters.
