The newest Zack Snyder Superman movie now has a title! Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice bum buM BUM!!! Okay, so the title is a little cheesy, but maybe it will be good. Maybe…
What do you think about this movie? Why are Batman and Superman fighting? Does Batman have a chance in a fight with Superman? Most people I talk to seem to think he doesn’t.
The following is my evidence that it might not be as easy for Superman to defeat Batman as you think.
- Animated Movie & Comic: The Dark Night Returns Pt. 1 & 2
- Animated Movie: Justice League DOOM
- Animated Movie: World’s Finest
- Comic: Superman Red Son
I’ve heard some people ask “Why is Batman fighting Superman?” I have a theory, here goes. You heard it here first.
Bruce Wayne (Affleck) is in Metropolis working with Lex Luther (Eisenberg), perhaps rebuilding Metropolis after Zod and Superman (Cavill) came to blows in Man of Steel. Meanwhile Batman, who is not known for being trusting, does not trust this new alien in Metropolis. This causes issues and is the stem of their initial fights. At some point they team up against the real bad guy Lex Luther. End of Movie. That’s my guess, what’s yours?
Are you excited for the comic faceoff of the century? Are you worried Affleck won’t have the chops to play Bruce Wayne? Leave a comment, let us know!
