Yes, if you have not heard it yet, during San Diego’s Comic Con, Zack Snyder, director of Man of Steel, announced that in the sequel to the movie, the superhero will be facing off against The Dark Knight himself.
It sounds really exciting and based on the picture above, it’s not something that was an original idea. In the comics, Batman and Superman did go against each other. I have no idea what (I’m not a big DC fan, admittedly), but sources on the Internet (Internet is always right, right?) said that Batman tricked Superman and faked his death. Interesting…
But Zack Snyder mentioned that he will not follow the comics but the sequel will be inspired by it.
How does Siti feel about this news?
Let me begin by saying that if I were to choose a favourite DC superhero, it would be the caped crusader. I mean, if I were to choose between the two, of course. But truthfully, I personally feel that Catwoman is a badass. And if I can work the catsuit, honeybuns, I will cosplay as Catwoman but I have big thighs and ass so I shall not be an eyesore to everyone, including myself.
As exciting as it is, and I am intrigued to find out how this epic battle fares out, Man of Steel was really boring for me. And thinking about having to watch the sequel of it just made me sigh in front of my computer. I cannot imagine how it would be.
Also, even though Henry Cavill is perfect as the man of steel and he will be back in the role for this sequel, Christian Bale mentioned that he is not coming back to reprise the role as Batman and he was one of the most perfect Batman other than George Clooney, in my opinion. If Christian Bale comes back, I seriously would watch it because of one word: epic. He’s a great actor for the role.
I just feel so bummed out right now. Who else will take the Batman role? I can’t think, at the moment, someone new (or not) who would be perfect as Batman because Christian just killed it in The Dark Knight trilogy and whoever who’s going to take over that role is going to have that hanging over his head. Good luck, whoever you are.
Love it or hate it? I don’t know. I think I will reserve my judgement when the teaser trailer comes up. Until then…
Note: There are a number of exciting news coming out from Comic Con. As such, for the next few days, I will be blogging about my thoughts on the news from San Diego.
