    I'm hoping it's firstly a Superman film, that just so happens to feature Bruce/Batman. That's what it sounds like. I mean Snyder said firstly at con it was MOS 2 and then announced a special someone would be in it and boom, cue Harry coming out, reading a quote from Miller's Returns, and cue the logo and fanboys ****ing themselves.

    Some people are freaking out..in a bad way,I understand certain concerns But it's reaching ultimate drama queen status,Some have been *****ing since the official news broke out and already are claiming this film will be crap and is the "worst decision ever"when we don't know much about the film or even how big of a role Batman will have yet some are acting like it's confirmed Superman will be misused in such a horrific way.

    F**k the past's history on Batman/Superman cross overs,That could easily change here,IF your one who hated MOS that's fine But doesn't mean this one will guarantee to suck either..Well I guess maybe to YOU since your convinced already.

    This could still be Superman's show and a solo sequel IF(a good chance of it)Bruce/Batman is just a supporting character in a smaller role,Even IF it's a full-on tag team film there may still be other solo sequels later on,You can't have it you way of a specific order of films

    WB could have added a cool 80mill to the domestic figure if they had simply added a bruce wayne stinger to the mos credits.

    It wouldn't of.
    MOS2:WF has a bigger shot at earning a billion +. I always said if you put Bat and Sup in a film together, boy oh boy would the box office results be interesting.

    Again....

    This is a Superman film, but Batman will have a major impact in it.

    I'm thinking like Catwoman in TDKR. This will be Batman in Superman's world, not the other way around.

    Good point, lots of people were simply expecting snyder to toss in more destruction, and with this you can go bigger in a different way. Bring on the robots and kryponite poisoned superman that batman saves and stuff.

    Well in case it hasn't been made painfully obvious yet, none of this was planned.

    WB clearly just didn't wanna wait any longer and couldn't risk a standalone MOS sequel given the mixed response to the first one. That's what I take from this anyway.

    Actually, I really enjoyed MOS, hence being the reason why I wanted to see MOS 2 so much, especially done right. And yeah, I'll admit that my first reaction to this was over-the-top; I'm definitely cooling down about it now, but it still troubles me a bit since I'm just jaded by past interpretations of this duo.

    I think needing more new info is a understatement at this point.

    Hell, it would be so ideal if this were treated more as a true MOS 2 sequel than a spin-off, ala WF

    Not long after MOS was released, maybe a few weeks afterwards on empire I think.

    So I guess we can expect to see Superman and Batman retired and in Florence together at the end of the film.lol

    Spending the rest of my days in peace sleeping with Anne Hathaway on a regular basis. Sounds good to me. Lex could work as a villain for both Clark and Bruce.

    Tbh I think he'd be better off as Barry Allen.

    The one thing I can't wait to see is how the folks over at "How it should have ended" Cafe reacts to this with their batman and Superman skits.lol

    Chris Pine would work for Wally West. How about Chris Pratt, he's a chameleon when it comes to altering his physical appearance.

    He's also a good choice for Hal Jordan. I think he could nail Bruce Wayne, but I'm not sure about Batman.

    He's already playing Star Lord though for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy.

    Sorry I quoted you,I meant people in general But I guess I quoted you since your the one who's been the most out spoken and indeed you seem much more cool down now.

    This film could go in so many bad OR good ways and so yeah just think we should wait for at least the first trailer and scoop of spoilers

    I do wish though on what they're labeling this film as. I mean is it a spin-off? A Direct Sequel but with the gimmick of having Batman in it as a supporting character like how Winter Soldier seems to be filled with some heroes in it, etc?

    Plus, where would this leave Clark's development in tackling third world issues or becoming established to the people of the world, being a journalist, etc?

    A World's Finest film seems to work better when Superman is already established. Now some could say that Superman might be established by the time the film opens up, then I'd counter with that by saying that we just lost some strong material that should have been tackled and presented in a sequel for superman.

    I hope it's true. I was really ecstatic about the news at first, and after reading this thread and your concerns I'm starting to panick lol, I want this to be a Man of Steel sequel with the introduction of Batman.

    But yeah, your comment makes sense, the universe has already been established around Superman.
