Where to start… Batman is probably one of my very top favorite superheroes, for real. Ever since the very first time I saw the classic Batman and Robin with Adam West and Burt Ward.
Anyhoo, Batman has undergone MANY changes throughout his evolution of existence. Personally, I did like the initial Tim Burton installments, for the time. He really accentuated the comic book-turned-film style that was new and exciting, and not straying too far away from the broody and moody Batman. The Dark Knight, was just that. Dark, not to mention gloomy. I actually thought that was well balanced, well acted, and spews the true feeling of Batman. Which in essence is justice beyond that of right and wrong.
So how do we introduce Mr. Super Doops and the Bats? As we have been shown in the brand spanky new trailer, it appears Lex Luthor is having a party. Perhaps he knew who they really are, or not. Either way, Tight Pants confront Gloomy Boy about Batman, and discovers that Bruce is not a fan. Having such a bullied past, it may be hard on Clark to realize that not everyone will like you. My therapist says this is something that is normal, and we can overcome this together. Superman needs to build a bridge, and try not to fight Batman on it.
So beyond what we know from the trailer and list of cast members, I can only think of one possible ending of this, mostly ending in “Sorry babe, let’s work this out”, maybe a quick bro hug. I’m sure Wonder Woman will throw in the usual, “Stop it you two…” Eye roll.
The only way we know this is going to end up working out is because the Justice League exists! If you end up skipping out on Batman Vs. Superman, I suggest just binging on The Justice League and Justice League Unlimited Animated Series. They are fantastic, more than any movie can try, CGI’s got nothing on 6 years of the best voice talent and storytelling ever animated. (Well maybe not EVER, but you feel me.)
In the end, this story has already been told. It has been in the comic books several times, in individual animated movies, and animated series. Batman and Superman are buddies, in a love/hate, “I have a basement full of kryptonite”, sort of way. They are just a couple of powerful dudes in it for the same reasons. They may have been led on their path in different ways, but have ended up together, fighting evil and saving the innocent for the better of all, and who could ask for a better
love story action movie?
