Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa, waitaminute. Please tell me this is real and not some sick joke from the producers over at Syncopy, can you? Please?
Apparently this is real and this is happening: Zack Snyder, director of 300 and the recently-released Man Of Steel movie, has confirmed recently at San Diego Comic-Con that the Man Of Steel sequel will feature a DC crossover between Superman and the dark knight himself, Batman. Full announcement by Snyder is below:
“I’m so excited to begin working again with Henry Cavill in the world we created, and I can’t wait to expand the DC Universe in this next chapter. Let’s face it, it’s beyond mythological to have Superman and our new Batman facing off, since they are the greatest Super Heroes in the world.”
I don’t know how to feel about this. On one hand, Zack Snyder made a great superman picture with Man Of Steel, and with Christopher Nolan returning to produce and David Goyer returning to write the screenplay, its looking like we’ll be in solid hands.
At the same time though, Snyder is facing pressing issues with this concept if he indeed chooses to go forward. For one thing, there’s the issue of trying to replace Batman from the Christopher Nolan trilogy (David Goyer already confirmed that this new Batman has nothing to do with Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy), but the biggest issue at stake here is how on earth are they going to make this work? What will be the plot? Who would be the villain? How would you make the team-up convincing enough to replace The Dark Knight? And don’t even get me started on casting.
What’re your thoughts, though? Ecstatic? Furious? I know plenty of DC die-hards will be happy to hear this news, but what are the rest of you guy’s thoughts? Comment below, let me know.
