Batman is strongminded, serious, paranoid, always planning ahead, practical, violent, angry and dramatic. He is best when he is descending into tragedy, becoming more antisocial and more controlling. Rule #1 for Batman: given time, he can plan and react to almost anything, although he's only human. A human who has the money to buy plenty of kryptonite and brilliant enough to use magic or science to block Superman. The Batman would, opon hearing the news reports of the existence of a Superman, spend every waking hour to devise multiple plans and scenarios to deal with this "Alien" just in case the day comes when he proves a danger. Superman is unchecked power and one of the largest threats in the world, yet he seems to be a force for good.....for now.
The well made Superman Vs. Batman movie will incorporate these extremes and in the end find the cohesion of the most powerful teamup possible in all comics and movies. Supes hits them high and Batman sneaks around the back and hits them low. Batman learns to almost trust this god and through this trust, use his friend's potential to pass his own limitations. Clark is his friend and in a strange way much more of a functional human being, than Bruce is. Superman learns to respect this mortal and to rely on him more than any god or super being. Bruce is his equal and getting there with no powers, makes him almost his better.
Below, surprise! The Moviehole.net tells us that this idea is not dead. But will it be the death of the one character superhero movie? If successful, will the genre be filled with teamups, guest stars and compromise? You better bet your lunch money!! Although I'm hoping Watchmen makes it to the screen first and explodes the "teamup" gimmick before it starts.
You remember the one? In it, Batman and Superman have a bit of a skirmish. Capes fly, as they say. Everyone from Jude Law to John Travolta (priceless!) to Colin Farrell was apparently in talks to take part in the production. At the end of the day, Warner decided to ditch the idea – for the meantime anyway – and relaunch the solo adventures of Clark and Brucie, respectively.
There are rumblings that the Superhero teaming will happen at one stage, but not until after a couple of solo efforts for the new "Batman" and "Superman", which would make sense. Having said that, it's a shoe-in that both Brandon 'Superman' Routh and Christian 'Batman' Bale will reprise their roles for the two-hander.
IESB caught up with Peterson and asked him whether he was still interested in bringing "Batman Vs.Superman" to the big screen still – even if it is in twenty years time – and though he reminds that it's "on the shelf right now", he did confirm that "at one point" he might do it.
The script for "Batman Vs.Superman", by "Se7en" writer Andrew Kevin Walker, sees an aged Bruce Wayne - who lost Robin, the boy wonder, some five years before - retired from Batman duties and retiring with new fiancee Elizabeth. Unfortunately, Batman's old foes return just after their wedding - namely, The Joker - and Elizabeth is murdered. Hell-bent on getting revenge, Bruce dons the cape again in a mission to destroy the clown prince of crime. Superman, fearing Batman is about to cross the line and become a murderer like the criminals he chases, ends up clashing with the Caped Crusader over his motives - and the heroes are set on a violent collission against each other. Unbeknownst to the heroes, their actions are falling in line with a villainous plot by Lex Luthor, who is responsible for the resurrection of the Joker.
