@captain13: Barry Allen would be better off playing Barry Allen then Bruce Wayne. The things we can count on for Superman vs Batman is Lex Luthor (CEO of LexCorp with aspirations of becoming President), actual kryptonite, Amanda Waller may appear but they should save Steve Trevor until Wonder Woman is introduced and hopefully bring the Joker into play. Bruce will use the kryptonite to keep Superman in check while Lex hires Joker to take out Batman and Superman with kryptonite that way Lex's hands stay clean of any involvement. Bruce and Lex will probably enter some hostile takeover plot which causes the Batman to crack down on Lex's illicit business deals. I sure hope they bring Director Bones into this movie. Maybe he could be Waller's boss.
Its about time if u ask anyone including myself plus this will serve as a great precursor to the Justice League film. Its Superman's stamina to influence and motivate that brings the team together and its Batman's resources that makes the Justice League a force that no villain will want to reckon with. I just hope Lex Luthor who is already confirmed for the movie will be teaming up with the Joker.
The only question is who will step up to the plate for three title roles. In my opinion, I think its time to resurrect Billy Zane's career and cast him as Lex Luthor. He could pull it off without breaking a sweat plus he plays suave and evil pretty well. As for Batman, some suggested Armie Hammer to play the Dark Knight and after watching the Lone Ranger (which wasn't that bad despite what critics or movie goers have said), I think he might be able to pull it off without having to use the whole deep voice thing like Bale.
Sorry to say, Bale said he wouldn't return as Batman unless Nolan was directing Superman vs Batman. All the same that's fine by me. Nolan can go his way and DC can its own way. Now the Joker, everyone keeps saying no one can match Ledger's performance. I'm sorry but if u watch the Dark Knight or the 1989 Batman long enough, anyone can play Joker and make it look genuine. As for who could play Joker, I think Tom Hiddleston aka Loki or Robert Downey Jr. could pull it off. They just need to master a convincing laugh. Nicholson's and Mark Hamill's Joker laugh were by far the greatest. What do u think?
As a side note, I really hope they ditch the Enchanted chick as Lois Lane and get somebody else. U need someone sexy and tenacious to play Lois. There are plenty of choices.
The only thing I don't get is why they are not introducing Ant-Man or Wasp in Avengers 2. Pym created Ultron and is the only one who knows how to take him down. Most likely what they are going to do is mention Pym's involvement with Ultron's origin. As for Vin Diesel, he has a Dom-Letty relationship in Avengers 2 so its obvious he is going to be the Vision (Ultron's creation) and Scarlet Witch's love will convince the Vision to change sides.
Thank you Wolverine for expressing my displeasure.
I thought Bay's first script with a militaristic Foot Clan was thrown out when it leaked out on to the internet. Now I hear Finchter is playing Shredder or Col. Shraeder. I feel like Kenan from Kenan & Kel:
If u r a true believer of TMNT and love the original mythology of the Turtles as I do then it is ur responsibility to bash this film when it comes out. It must stomped until it's a bloody smear on the floor. Transformers is one thing but this alteration can not be tolerated. Please do not be swayed by Michael Bay's talent for...
Only we true believers of the Turtles (who were conveaniently born in the 80's) can save the day and preserve their legacy.
I'm stoked that Downey is going to be Iron Man but I want to see more Iron Man villains like Blizzard, Beetle or MODOK. Iron Man 3 was alright. I really don't see how this movie is making more money then the last two but for some odd reason it is. I just didn't like the Mandarin facade with Ben Kingsley. They already pulled that trick in Batman Begins and it kinda worked. The Sensei pretending to be Ra's al Ghul and Henri Ducard actually being Ra's al Ghul. U can't just use a fantastic actor like Ben Kingsley and give him such a meaningless role. Its just not done.
@pikahyper: Can't the site just re-open that option so we don't have to bother u with alias requests? In any case I have a number of villains and heroes who need to be updated. Hook (Deadman's killer) for one thing needs to be changed.
This Superman is definitely a big improvement from the originals or Singer's Superman Returns. As for being the movie that everyone was hoping for like G-Man suggested. I mean come on. Every superhero at one time or another is pushed into a corner and is forced to kill their arch nemesis. Wonder Woman killed Ares in her comic book series to prevent another war. Nolan's Batman allowed Ra's al Ghul to die on the runaway subway train. U can't expect our superheroes to uphold their morals every time.
Haven't u noticed that our superheroes show sympathy to conflicted villains even though these rogues may have brought so much destruction on others. In the Spider-Man films, the villains always seem to kill themselves after Spidey tries to bond or reason with them. Zod on the other hand, was a monster who believed "the ends justify the means." He never regretted a single thing he had done for the preservation of Krypton. Plus Superman stopping Zod's heat vision with his hand wasn't much of an option since Clark used his heat vision to get Faora's foot off of his face.
Personally, I would like it if movies would follow the story lines set by the comics but then certain things would be predictable or anticipated. I think the deaths of villains or heroes should be the only thing followed according to the comics. Zod's death in this movie is an exception to this statement that should be acknowledged. Zod would have been like the Joker is to Batman, he will just keep coming back if he is allowed to live. However, Batman won't kill Joker because it would be too damn easy and he would sink to Joker's level or maybe he won't kill the Joker because he feels pity. Batman knows Joker's former life and he was the one who unintentionally created the crazed clown. For Superman, he was raised to be good man by the Kents but even a good man must make hard decisions. Even though Superman killed Zod, Superman still showed remorse, a characteristic that Zod lacks.
As for Superman tending to the helpless or protecting the innocent in Smallville, he did tell the people to take cover. If I were smart, I would just evacuate. I wouldn't need some guy in tights to tell me to go for safety. Plus this proves the point that Superman can't be everywhere to protect everyone at the same time. Its a harsh truth that every superhero must contend with when battling a villain. Batman deals with this truth by playing "big brother" and establishing Batman Inc but of course, Batman has this rooted need to rescue which often strays into an obsession. Superman on the other hand, takes these long vacations to be alone with his thoughts then he comes charging in when he is conveniently needed again.
Man of Steel was fast paced. It never got boring. The dialogue was moving as well as charismatic. One potential flaw though Superman's secret identity as Clark Kent is spoiled too soon because Lois Lane does some digging around. The metaphor for Clark Kent is best described by David Carradine in Kill Bill Vol 2:
Other than that, everything was top notch despite Nolan's involvement. Still didn't like Amy Adams version of Lois Lane. Hopefully she only had a contract for one movie.When you see the movie, Emil Hamilton's fate is undetermined. He could have died when the Phantom Zone reopened and closed or he is now trapped in the zone. We shall see if he returns as Superman's foe Ruin or if he will become a little wiser about Kryptonian tech. Plus Superman's fortress of solitude wasn't established in the film. It should have been created when he found the vessel that carried him to Earth or by the scout ship in the Arctic.
Jax-Ur makes an appearance as Zod's medical officer and torturer of Superman. Lex Luthor's influence is briefly mentioned when Zod crashes into a oil tanker with LexCorp printed on the truck. Now with Metropolis in ruin, Luthor can step in and rebuild Metropolis. Kryptonite is mentioned but only in an atmospheric environment on Zod's ship. We shall see what Snyder comes up with next. We can only hope that Luthor will create Metallo and Parasite or join forces with Brainiac in the next film.
@comradecold: I think u are on to something with a few exceptions. The designers mentioned in the side missions that u can play as villains. The villains mentioned were Firefly and Electrocutioner. I think the game designers will lean away from other assassins and stick to the primary ones. Deathstroke is probably the only exception because he is primarily a Nigthwing rogue as well as the Teen Titans arch nemesis. People just really want to see Deathstroke and Batman cut loose.
The crime lords like Penguin, Black Mask, Carmine Falcone and Sal Maroni must be working together to hire these assassins. Hopefully, they will bring in the Ventriloquist, Great White Shark and Maxie Zeus into the mix of mob bosses. With the Falcones bringing brought into this game, I would be willing to bet that Calendar Man, Harvey Dent (before becoming Two-Face) and Catwoman will return for this game.
Ra's al Ghul will probably appear as the facilitator of the League of Assassins along with the Sensei, Nyssa Raatko, Talia al Ghul, White Ghost and Ubu. I bring up Ra's al Ghul because for one thing it makes sense to introduce him in this particular story plus his corpse was seen at Arkham Asylum before it vanished. Its possible that Nyssa Raatko kills Ra's at the end of this Origins game.
Five out of the 8 assassins/ hitmen have been confirmed for the game: Deathstroke, Deadshot, Firefly, Electrocutioner & Alberto Falcone. The remaining three may be filled by the following: Lady Shiva, David Cain, Sofia Falcone-Gigante, KGBeast, NVKDemon, or the Silver Monkey. There is the possibility that Bane maybe one of the eight assassins but I understand that would throw off the chronological order of things. Then again video games are never really that good at following a timeline. If Bane does come back, I hope they will give him a more conservative look.
If this is Batman's younger years, Henri Ducard might also make an appearance. I'm really looking forward to this game. I don't think it will disappoint at all. The only thing I wish they would change is the setting. I mean X-Mas with assassins? The snowy atmosphere was already done with Arkham City.
