    Maybe the issue isn't that Snyder doesn't dislike Superman, but fans who hate his work think that Snyder (and WB) just didn't have a good plan for Superman. And since we've made DCAU parallels, the...

    Superman II (any version) was pretty sloppy with the details, but you could distill its conclusion to Superman couldn't fight and beat three super-powered Kryptonians, so he had to outsmart them. In...

    Okay, so my physics are really rusty, but...

    If Superman weighed 200 lbs and jumped 50 ft into the air, he'd need about 13,362 J of kinetic energy. That's about the same as a one metric ton (1000...

    I think comics rely on this trope too often.

    I mean, I get the need for knowing basic combat skills. At the very least, you never know when you'll get into fisticuffs with someone who's your...

    You can't go extreme one way or the other. A lot of bad sequel come from standalone movies that did really well that the studios demanded a second, but the story didn't really have anywhere to go but...

    And then when you look at the previous movie, the argument was that there wasn't enough action.

    I know, I know, happy mediums and sweet spots, but Superman's seems to be a pretty small target to...

    Fascinating analysis. One would think that Superman has a better chance to survive because it's a true reboot whereas the Terminator movies were a weird bunch of sequels, and Superman has a lot of...

    I think apathy is a bigger problem than antipathy. I could imagine a really good writer who didn't like Superman but wanted to be a consummate pro doing better than a guy who viewed it as just a...

    All the talk about Rey from Star Wars and how she figured out the force way too quickly (:mad:) made me think what if WB did the opposite with Superman and made it hard for him to develop his powers...

    What if it were heavily foreshadowed? I mean, I don't like Smallville at all, but I don't ding them for the no-flight rule because you knew it was going to happen to Clark sometime.
  11. If you commit to a planned out series (i.e. not...

    If you commit to a planned out series (i.e. not what WB did with Cavill), you can make it happen. The imaginary screenplay I've been fake-writing for the next Superman movie starts out this way....
  12. Robin? He's bald, so maybe he can be Luthor.

    Robin? He's bald, so maybe he can be Luthor.
  13. Yeah, I read that about Snyder's vision. I would...

    Yeah, I read that about Snyder's vision. I would guess, though, that Affleck helped push the movie in that direction, and if he were in charge it would've been even more extreme. From my...

    I often wonder if part of the reason the movie is so Batman centric, and why the theatrical cut features so little Superman, is because Affleck was not going to accept a minor role. I remember...
  15. I may be veering too far off-topic here, but...

    I may be veering too far off-topic here, but Batman creators and fans use realism when it suits them. Batman is often considered the best superhero (and I don't disagree with this) because he's...

    A cynical guy is welcome so long as he can write a character who falls outside his own world view.
  17. Batman stories can get away with the no-kill rule...

    Batman stories can get away with the no-kill rule because nobody in comics dies of blunt force trauma, except (ironically) Superman. Batman utterly beats the s**t out of people that it's almost like...

    Were they combat-based flight, or free-roaming flight? I played Bayonetta a long time ago, but I don't remember flying much. Maybe it was more like ground fighting, but the move would animate so that...

    Batman has had good games on various platforms since NES, but Superman games have been demonstrably worse, not to mention fewer and farther between. Superman has largely been a continuing example of...

    Yeah, I read the reasoning that they made the pairing based on fan reaction, but I find it hard to believe that it was some sort of happy accident. It's like they're blaming (or crediting) the fans...

    The episode "Paradise Lost" had some solid ideas for sure. I mean, WW saving the entire island but getting banished for breaking Themyscira's cardinal rule? That's some powerful stuff there. It's...

    JLU Giganta had no real connection to Wonder Woman other than maybe some prior off-screen run-ins. She was once an ordinary ape that Grodd turned into a human who could grow into a giant, so in a way...

    I'm going to try not to drown this thread in Haterade, so I'll just say I believe a large chunk of fans see the DCAU from the lens of Batman, so they see that as the most pertinent "character...

    Seems consistent with his Occupy Wall Street comments from eight years ago (almost to the day), like he's injecting his thoughts at the time to Batman. Though apparently Miller claims he wasn't...
