    Not sure if the trailer is real or not. Looks potentially cool but how would batman stand a chance and why would superman be a bad guy?

    'cause batman is always prepared for everything (i'm guessing he packs kryptonite) and the theme from that trailer seems to be all about how we as humans would really react to this essentially god-like figure flying around doing what he thinks is "good".

    looks intriguing if overly gloomy, i hope it doesn't suck.

    how dare you?

    :)

    i read an interesting piece somewhere comparing the two characters, concluding that batman was actually the more unrealistic and unbelievable of the two!

    with superman, if you start with the "alien" premise, then his powers and all are just that, alien, and we can accept them as long as they're logically consistent.

    with batman, we have to believe that a normal human can have all of these different martial arts skills, and knowledge of so many different technical and scientific things, all at top levels, most of which would each require long, rigorous daily training just to maintain the abilities he's supposed to have.

    he'd have to be 200 years old or living in a universe with 40-hour days and no sleep to be that good at all of it.

    Awesome! All superhero movies, all the time! I want no others for the foreseeable future. They are what big cinema was meant for.
    This year has lots of fun stuff on the way.

    Every time superman goes bad, batman stops him. It's how it must be at this point. Superman sucks anyway.

    it takes place in an alternate marvel universe.

    superman just messes him up. throws batman into the sun or something just as bad.

    my buddy knows way too much about this stuff.

    like planet hulk and stuff.

    yeah, planet hulk. lol!

    hulk gets married.

    probably my x-wife.

    Superman is not part of the Marvel universe.

    This is based on Frank Miller's graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns. Comic geeks more or less already know the story. For us it's just a matter of "Don't screw this up, Snyder."

    Well it's kinda complicated....you see, he's still a good guy, so is Batman..... just that instead of them being Superfriends with the Wonder Twins and Gleek the monkey and all, in the modern era they have different conflicting philosophies about do-gooding. In other words, Superman is a humbucker kind of guy while Batman is a single coil.
