Batman Vs. Superman:
The follow contains neither official information nor photos. Only fan made photos and my thought on the rumors.
Okay now onto those rumors.
- Batman will be 40 years old and retired
Nope this better not be true. First anyone who is a Batman fan, hell anyone who knows about Batman knows, HE WOULD NEVER GIVE UP! My biggest issue with The Dark Knight Rises is Batman would never stop, not an injury and defiantly not over his girlfriend. Batman will always be there, fighting. It’s Bruce Wayne that will only stop when Bruce Wayne is dead. Batman will always continue, Cough-cough Terry McGinnis cough. The idea that he would retire at 40 kills me. He made the commitment on his parent’s graves; he isn’t going to stop until he dies. If this happens, then I’m going to have some issues.
- Batman’s suit and the Batmobile will be amazing
Yes please! I really enjoy Superman’s suit in Man of Steel, never liked Sups but this one I did, so bring on the amazing suit and car. As far as I have heard the car will be somewhat of a nod to the class comic one with a Bat-shield on the front. Im hoping more along the line of what we have seen with the Arkham game, Arkham Knight. Just please again, let that cowl have long ears…please.
- Bruce Wayne gets involved with the rebuilding of Metropolis with LexCorp
Okay I don’t mind this. Bruce and Lex worked together before. Never turned out to work, usually Lex had another plan and Batman had to stop him. Kind of would think this would happen anyways, if it doesn’t might be a missed opportunity. Honestly right after I left the theater I thought Bruce Wayne would be apart of the rebuilding of Metropolis. It just seemed to be something so big that if couldn’t be left alone. But that being the case I don’t believe Batman should be in a Superman film, latter just not yet. If Batman had his own then had a small role in a Sups film, okay that I can see. But not Affleck’s first outing as Batman.
- Events of The Dark Knight Rises are part of this new series
Wait what the…? You’re kidding me right? I hope not, plus I don’t see that working out. So the rumor is this is why Batman comes back, because of what happened in MoS. And Robin then becomes Nightwing. Another rumor says that Batman’s family grows with, Nightwing, Batgirl, Robin and Red Robin. Wait! So in the 7 years all that happens? Ugh not liking that. The rumor goes on saying Joker will kill Robin…Wait now the Joker is in this film? I find a lot of this TDKR continuing a bit hard to believe, plus didn’t Snyder say it wont? Seems a lot to fit into one film, So I’m saying this isnt true, and lets hope so.
- Batman has an army
Ugh…well this I can see. But again like the retiring and the Batfamily growing, the timeline doesn’t work for me. Awhile back I wrote my take on a Batman Beyond feature film. I used this idea of Batman Androids, but it wasn’t Bruce Wayne using a bunch of BatDrones and BatAndroid. I had someone else, well lets just say it makes sense. I don’t think this would be a Batman thing to do. But he kinda has in the comics, so I could give this a pass even though it kills me. That really makes no since, again Batman being retired kills it for me just right away. Rumor has it he just sits in a cave fighting crime with BatDrones. It’s really such a non-Batman type of thing to do. Why they feel this makes sense to do then just Batman being Batman is beyond me.
In conclusion from what I know and hear, right now as it stands I don’t like what I’m hearing. Yes Ben Affleck might be the best part of what I’ve heard so far, but as far as the story is shaping up I’m getting very concerned. Again most of this is just probably rumor so we might have something completely different.
Well lets hope so.
