Batman vs Superman
Look, I’m cool enough to admit that I have a life-size Batman statue in my Nerd Room of Doom. It’s pretty awesome, and everyone who sees it, becomes instantly jealous. That being said, Hot Toys is about to do something this weekend that will make my Batman statue look like a cheap knock-off action figure.
You probably saw it on Twitter last night, but as the doors opened on Preview Night at the San Diego Comic Con, and fans made their way to the Warner Bros. booth, the world got a really good first look at Ben Affleck’s costume from the upcoming Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice movie.
Marvel takes a shot square at the heart of Warner Bros. and announces that the movie they will be releasing the same day as Batman vs. Superman will be Captain America 3! Let the battle for the box office begin!
Last summer, when it was announced Warner Bros. was moving ahead with Batman vs. Superman, everyone (and you know who they are) said production would move ahead based on the screenplay by David Goyer. Those who have listened to the Major Spoilers Podcast over the last couple of weeks know we’re a little hesitant on Goyer’s hit and miss successes, and it looks like Warner Bros. is concerned too, as a new writer has been brought on board.
Call me crazy, but the news popping up left and right about the Man of Steel sequel, Batman vs. Superman, has me wondering if we are getting that smack down battle between the big two as seen in the pages of The Dark Knight Returns, or if the movie is really a disguise for the Justice League.
Late last week it came out that Zack Synder and company would be filming a few of their first scenes from the upcoming Man of Steel: Batman Boogaloo during the halftime of a football game. Both a description of what took place and a video have been uploaded to the Internet for us all to scrutinize over.
