Discussion in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice World' started by Young Superman, May 8, 2014.
Whether it be from movies, comics, cartoons, etc.
New 52 Morrison Superman/Year One Batman
All Star Superman/All Star Batman
Reeve / Keaton would have been interesting to see, but in all honesty, I think Affleck and Cavill are going to bring it so well together.
Taking a step back for a moment, I honestly feel they are the best match up, I admit I would have loved a Bale / Cavill combo but I for one was saying right after Nolan's films, (I admit it was never going to happen) but I was saying never for another Batman film after Nolan's three, simply because I loved them so much, but now, I can see a future in which this universe is going to be all consuming in a positive way. DC / WB can and will shape a universe that will exceed all other studios have produced IMO.
I love MOS and the groundwork from which this new universe can build from is one that I have full confidence in, and that is partly down to knowing that BA and HC will bring an awesome Bruce and Clark relationship and create around them a world we have always cared in to a fully rounded existence.
Tom Welling (Smallville) for younger Clark
Dean Cain (Lois & Clark) when he becomes Superman
I should have added West for Batman.
This was my TV show pairing.
So far, I feel like...you're the only person who gets the point of this thread.
EDIT: ....And then you ruined it by pairing Welling/Cain, lol.
Top choice: Cavill/Keaton (Would LOVE to see this one, imo it would be a great pairing)
Cain/Kilmer (These two just fit naturally together IMO, would be a lot of goofy fun)
and on the other end of the spectrum:
Routh/Clooney (For sh**s and giggles)
Edit to add:
Kilmer or Clooney/Cain
Superman for All Seasons/Batman: The Long Halloween
Welling/Smallville's version of Batman
It's a nice topic. I'd like to see what others pairings would be.
Keaton/Reeve . They actually did do a film together where they played rivals but it was a romcom in the 90s.
George Reeves/Adam West
My dream BvS film would be
Man i've always wanted to see a Trinity film with Reeve, Keaton and Carter... they're all around the same age, it would've worked.
Everyone probably said what I would have said.
I'm gonna say something a little different. The pre-Superman Morrison young Superman in New 52 (the one with the shirt and cape instead of suit) and the Zero Year Batman.
That would have been amazing...
Sometimes I wish Justice League: Mortal would've been made as originally planned. It was originally going to involve Christian Bale and Brandon Routh, but Nolan didn't want that. it would've continued the Al Ghul storyline and would've built off of Superman Returns and Batman Begins. I would've loved the **** outta that.
the original intended cast was:
Brandon Routh as Superman
Christian Bale as Batman
Jessica Biel as Wonder Woman
Colombus Short as Green Lantern
Ryan Reynolds as The Flash
Leonardo DiCaprio as Aquaman
Laurence Fishburne as Martian Manhunter
Mel Gibson as Maxwell Lord
Scarlett Johannsson as Talia Al Ghul
then budget concerns came about, and they realized they wouldn't be able to use Bale or Routh so they got a younger, cheaper cast.
i know! and they could've even gotten John Wesley Shipp as The Flash , he was around the same age too.
I didn't mind Common as Green Lantern in that Justice League Mortal. I thought that was a good pick.
^ How are those Superman/Batman pairings?
My bad. Was going for random mash-ups.
(don't kill me)
I'm not going to kill you...I want you to do me a favor...I want you to tell all your friends about me.
^ Who... are you?
The Reeve/Keaton pairing sounds really nice though. Reeve, being all boy scout-ey and upfront, and then you have sneaky, sneaky Keaton Batman. Fun to imagine.
Keaton/Reeve in the early nineties would've been AWESOME!
