The big news from Comic-Con on Saturday was that Batman would be a part of the next Superman movie. The whole gang responsible for Man of Steel — notably director Zack Snyder and screenwriter David Goyer — will be back for this sequel.
Tip the cap to DC Comics and Warner Bros., because that announcement completely overshadowed what Marvel Studios presented for the next Thor and Captain America flicks, Guardians of the Galaxy and even the Avengers sequel.
Two of the biggest superheroes on the planet in the same movie? It's a geek wet dream. DC and WB had to come up with something bigger than The Avengers, and this might do it. Of course, Superman and Batman teaming up is a precursor to a Justice League movie, which could just blow everyone's mind.
Yet I don't necessarily have the feelings about this that you might expect.
I'm a Superman fan. I'm a Batman fan. I love comic books and superhero movies. However, I just don't think this is a very good idea. I won't go so far as to say I hate it, because that sounds like internet fanboy. But I really don't like this.
