Poll: Thoughts on the Superman/Batman movie? (Comic Book Question of the Week VOTING) (328 votes)

I'm very excited. 40%
It's way too early to tell. 23%
I'm not looking forward to it. 6%
I'll probably like it... but only if Batman humiliates Superman. 5%
I'll probably like it... but only if Superman isn't downplayed to make Batman look better. 16%
So... where's Wonder Woman? 10%

It's finally happening, Viners. Superman and Batman will be in the same movie. The project will be directed by Zack Snyder and Snyder will also co-write the script with David S. Goyer. It's scheduled to come out in Summer 2015. With just these basic details, how do you feel about the upcoming project?

I love how these 2 characters coming together in one film has made me at least 10x more excited then when it was announced all the Avengers were coming together.

All I got to say is Batman better win.... None of this "Superman Wins" crap because Batman has won (hmm lets see here) 99% of the time against Superman.

I was gonna put The "as long as they dont downplay Superman to make Batman look better" vote but either way im really excited for it. I will be HIGHLY disappointed if that happens though.

I expect to see Batman get some moves in that Superman isnt expecting and maybe catch Superman by surprise with how intelligent Batman is and how thorough but in the end Superman should break through anything thrown at him (besides Kryptonite, which i could see Batman being the one that figures the whole Kryptonite thing out)

I am very excited... about everything but the writer/director. Man o' Steel was not my cuppa tea, so the idea of the same folks heading up this Movie Of All Movies has me more than a little concerned...

But at the end of the day, it's waaaaay too soon to tell. I shall remain cautiously optimistic.

Also, just so we're clear:

Batman wins with 1 hour or more of prep.

Superman wins otherwise.

I'm very excited about the film, mostly because I have faith in the creators behind it. They have a very difficult task. Otherwise, I'd be skeptical.

Honestly i hope he is the one that figures it out (then Lex steals that knowledge from Wayne Enterprises). Bruce is actually not the smartest man on earth in the DC Comics and even less smart in the DCCU. I wont deny in the comics he is probably one of the top 3 or 5 (couple years ago i would say top 2) Im not a Batman hater. I think he is a good character but i think he get away with way to much for being only human.

I see the two having a scuffle that doesn't go anywhere before the real threat reveals itself, either Faora and co get out of the Phantom Zone or Luthor shows up in power armor, or perhaps both?

Hush - You mean when Superman was mind controlled by Poison Ivy and the only way for Batman to win was with the help of Cat Woman and throwing Lois off a building?

Tower of Babel - You mean the one where Batman wasnt the one attacking everyone else? I give points that it was his plan so he most likely could have done it as well.

Superman/Batman Series - Looking Deeper into now

Superman Red Son - non-canon

Dark Knight Strikes Again - non-canon

So what about the Superman issues where Batman loses? Of course Batman is going to win in his own Comic

@nigravirum1: You're the problem with Batman fans. I like both characters but lets get real. Batman only holds off or distracts Supes, he can't physically match him. The only time Batman actually beat Supes was in the Dark Knight Returns which involved PIS and he had help.

Hush - No I meant when Batman beat Superman senseless with his KRYPTONITE ring that he carries with him at all times

Tower of Babel - It was proof that Batman could of beaten them all by himself at any time

Superman Red Son/Dark Knight Strikes Again - its an alternate future, not non-canon.... non-canon means it never happened.... alternate future means that it DID happen and is possible in any reality.

And I'm not saying that Batman has always won.... thats why I said 99% .... Batman has been beaten before I will admit. I aint completely unreasonable lol

@nigravirum1:

TDKR he doesn't win. He prays a weakened superman goes easy on him. And needs green arrows help to fight dirty.

Hush. That's not a fight, that's batman running for his life.

Smallville. Batman had lots of prep. He had the checkmate files on superman. He built a special suit that had a red sun batman logo on his chest. Red son gloves and kryptonite batarangs. He gets 2 or 3 punches in on supes. Superman gets serious and flicks him away. Batman later says his whole body has hairline factures on every bone.

Dude honestly I'm just messing with some of the Superman fans lol.... I secretly love Superman sometimes more than Batman.... I just like to talk about "the joke" how Batman has the ability to never lose.... I have said multiple times before "Superman is the greatest hero that ever lived". Its just fun sometimes to mess with Superman fans.

Superman from Man of Steel is insanely powerful compared to the Batman, we have seen in other movies. They will hopefully make it more even, by showing a Batman that is smarter than the ones we have seen before.

I'm very excited for this. However I don't want them to make Batman look better then Superman. During their fight scene (If they have one) it should show that both of them are equal in their own ways.

TDKR = lets not also forget that Batman was also incredibly old and weak as well

Hush = A win is a win.... I dont care if Batman was running away in the middle.... he still won

And it probaly took him like 1 week to recover from that hairline fracture thing seems how it took him just a few months to recover from a broken back that was suppose to paralyze him for the rest of his life lol

I voted too early too tell.

It all depends on the type of Batman they bring to the screen this time.

Nolan's Batman wasn't Batman to me, and if they try to do a similar Batman I won't really care about the film.

If they get it right though.....my oh my how incredible it could be.

Despite Superman and Batman being my two all time favourite characters, I'm not looking forward to this film that much. There should have been a sequel to Man of Steel first and then an expansion into the rest of the DC Universe. The fact Warner Bros are playing their two trick pony line again is becoming wearing. By jumping into a World's Finest movie, Warner Bros are rushing to catch up with Marvel's Cinematic Universe and it's going to backfire on them badly. Not to mention that Nolan, Snyder and Goyer all brought their share of problems to Man of Steel and might not get the chance to correct their mistakes in this film.

@mr__messy_face: I agree completely. It's not a versus movie, I don't think we'll see even a single punch thrown between them.

I actually think this is just a stop gap movie to introduce a new Batman before doing a Justice League movie.

I'd rather just have Superman be in movies alone until after Justice League (after that would be a much better time to have a Batman-Superman team up), but I understand that they want to introduce the new Batman before the Justice League movie, so I really hope they don't make Batman overshadow Superman in Superman's sequel. I'll see the movie for sure, but I'll probably be iffy about it until I actually see the movie.
