I’ve already mentioned a few times that I have little hope (although at the same time great interest) in the upcoming Justice League movie. I won’t yet again go into all the reasons why I have massive red flags going off about the movie, but still… it’s a comic book / sci fi / fantasy film, so I’ll certainly be there opening day.
Anyway, apparently Entertainment Weekly have gotten their hands on some key plot details for the JLA movie… including mention of Superman and Batman fighting it out. Our friends over at Slashfilm give us this:
The plot revolves around villainous businessman Maxwell Lord and involves cyborgs called OMACs (One-Man Army Corps), who can take over humans and turn them into killing machines. There are epic battles between Superman and Batman, as well as Superman and Wonder Woman.
Ok, now the “plot” itself sounds like pretty standard comic book fare. I feel neither positively nor negatively about it. But the part about that statement that REALLY made me sit up and take notice was that end part about epic battles between Superman and Batman.
It’s no secret around here that the one movie I really have been dying to is a Batman vs Superman film. I think that would be epic on so many levels that I can’t help getting excited even at the thought of it. So are the studio people listening and incorporating a Batman vs Superman sub-plot into the script? That would be beyond cool… although I have very little faith they’d pull it off correctly. Still… to see Batman and Superman fighting it out on the big screen (done well or not) would be damn sweet
