Before anyone goes into rage mode, please note the thread title is a quote by Geoff Johns that I want to discuss.
This is pretty old but I only just came across this, when watching the Celebrity opinions on the injustice battles. At around the 7:36 mark, Geoff Johns says that quote "It's year of the Superman, but it's the lifetime of the Batman" , while picking Batman as his victor. Year of the Superman is obviously referring to his 75th anniversary year
This is probably old news, but I've just seen it and I was a little bit shocked to be honest.
1. I actually thought it was quite disrespectful to Superman, even though the guy isn't even real haha! I'm a huge Batman fan and don't really care for Supes that much, but still for the Chief Creative Officer of DC to say that, during the 75th year celebration of Superman no less, I was like woaah!! I mean come on, no matter what I or anyone thinks, Superman is the original superhero and why we have others today.
2. The fact Geoff Johns said it surprised me also. I, as do many other Batfans I'm sure, get the feeling he doesn't care for Bats that much and endlessly tries to make him the butt of his jokes. I guess he can't get away from the fact that Batman is their top dog right now though and so was just pandering to Bat's enormous fan base in this instance, well that's what I think he was doing with this comment.
So what do you guys think about this comment? Do you think it was a bit disrespectful to Superman or not, and are you as surprised as I am that Geoff Johns would be the one to say it?
And also, would be interesting to see if anyone agrees with his statement or disagrees and why?
