Batman VS. Superman Still Alive

Batman Vs. Superman is I believe what ever single self respecting comic fan wants to see (ok, I’m exaggerating, but I know an awful lot of people who want to see this movie get made). In the last year, there have been a lot of on again / off again rumors and rumblings about the projects chances…. mostly negative… but they just won’t seem to go away.

The good folks over at Cinematical give us the following:

(It is being suggested that) the desire for such a film (Batman vs. Superman) was part of the motivation behind Warner Brothers offering Bryan Singer another go-around with the Man of Steel despite their obvious dissatisfaction with his first performance. Warner has been angling hard at a versus movie for the two titans for a number of years now, and the recent successful relaunch of the Batman franchise with Begins certainly had to encourage them. When the Superman hype machine geared up and everyone expected it to be even bigger than Batman, Warner had to be simply salivating over the possibilities. Superman may not have blown the doors off the box office, but it certainly didn’t flop, and so Warner isn’t willing to give up yet.

I can’t even tell you how much I’d love to see this film. Ever since I read Dark Knight Returns, which was the first time I ever saw the two gods fight it out, I have dreamed of seeing it on screen (for those of you who don’t know, Batman made Superman his bitch and kicked the crap out of him).

So why do so many people want to see these two duke it out? It’s not just because they’re the two most popular characters ever created in the DC universe… but because they represent two totally opposite views of the world and how to engage it. Superman is all ethics, total pure morality… often called “The Boy Scout” for good reason. Batman is more shades of grey than black and white. Darker, more twisted in his thinking and pessimistic about human nature as a result of his past history.

The collision between the two on screen would be fantastic… not just because of the fight… but the opportunities for conflict, verbal barbs, and the colliding and expressing of those two different world views would be a hell of a lot of fun to see.

The reality is that this film probably won’t happen in the next 10 years. But man I hope I’m wrong. I’d love to see this.
