BATMAN WOULD WIN RELATIVELY EASILY. ITS JUST THAT SIMPLE.

WHEN YOU TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION THE EASE WITH WHICH CAP HAS DEALT WITH LOGAN IN THE PAST &IN TERMS OF COMBAT INTELLIGENCE BATS IS VERY SIMILAR IF NOT SLIGHTLY SUPERIOR TO ROGERS

ALSO THE DIVIDING DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THEM ARE AN ADDED FACTOR LOGAN IS "BADASS" BUT NOTORIOUSLY SLOPPY &CARELESS DUE TO HIS "TRUMP CARD" ..NOW IF BATS DOESNT KNOW LOGAN HAS A HEALING FACTOR ITLL DRAW OUT FOR A WHILE.. IF HE DOES.. ITS GAME OVER PRETTYMUCH INSTANTLY FOR WEAPON X.

SHE ISNT AS STRONG AS SUPERMAN. &IN ANY EVENT SHE SHOULDNT BE.. IT WOULDNT FIT THE DYNAMIC OR BASIC COMMON SENSE THAT SHE IS. BUT HER STRENGTH IS NO LESS THAN 80 TON CLASS &HER COMBAT INTELLIGENCE IS BATMAN LEVEL IF NOT HIGHER THIS EQUALS BETTER THAN SUPES IN OUT &OUT VERSUS..

THING IS THE ONLY WAY KAL WOULD BEAT HER IS TO "LET LOOSE" WHICH EVEN WITH THIS NEW MORALLY AMBIGUOUS CHARACTERISATION. IS UNLIKELY IN ALMOST ANY SCENARIO.

@Super_SoldierXII: THE INITIAL SINGER X MEN MOVIE IS CONSIDER A CLASSIC AMONGST SUPERHERO/COMICBOOK MOVIES &SET THE STANDARD FOR A WAVE OF NEW MAINLINE HOLLYWOOD INTEREST..

WITHOUT IT THERE WOULD ARGUABLY BE NO M.OS. OR EVEN A DARK KNIGHT AVENGERS ETC

@SmashBrawler: Lana being "more important" might be due to the fact "Clark Kent Journalist" doesnt really exist in this film (till the end?) &also Lana Lang is Clarks FIRST love.. seeing as this is an origin story one can assume she takes center stage &her loss will inspire Kal El to rip Zah'd limb from limb..? (im kiddin about the last part)

OK 1STLY. MY ONLY WORRIES ABOUT THIS PROJECT ARE HIS HEIGHT/STATURE (MINOR ISSUE) & NOLANS INVOLVEMENT (MAJOR ISSUE)

EVERYTHING ELSE IS COMPLETELY ON POINT &I HAVE COMPLETE FAITH IN SNYDERS ABILITY TO DELIVER A GOOD ENTRY TO A MODERN REALISTIC TAKE ON THE MAN OF STEEL ANYONE WHO SAW WATCHMEN &THE RUN UP TO THE RELEASE CAN AGREE.

THE 1ST HALF OF MY WORRIES ARE SELF EXPLANATORY THE SECONDARY ABIT MORE COMPLEX.. NOLANS INVOLVEMENT WHILE BOLSTERING THE CONFIDENCE OF FICKLE &SOMEWHAT PEDESTRIAN FANS IN THE PROJECT GIVES ME PAUSE FOR CONCERN.. BECAUSE THOUGH HIS GREAT TECHNICAL EXPERTISE IN SCRIPT REFINERY PACING &CINEMATOGRAPHY (THE LATTER SOMETHING SNYDERS ALREADY GOT DOWN) HIS WORRYING TENDENCY TO (INITIALLY) MAKE COMIC STORIES PLEASINGLY REALISTIC BUT GO PAST THE REALISM BARRIER &DESCEND INTO NAVEL GAZING MEDIOCRITY (DKR) IS SOMETHING I HOPE HE KEEPS IN CHECK.

ADDRESSING THE PA "BIZZARO" KENT SCENARIO HES OBVIOUSLY MIDSPEECH &IS TRYING TO TEACH CLARK HE NEEDS TO BE MORE CAREFUL ALSO &THAT HE WONT BE ABLE TO SAVE EVERYONE.. WHICH IS SOMETHING SOMEONE WITH POWERS SUCH AS HIS NEEDS TO LEARN EARLY OR HE'LL GO MAD BEFORE HIS TEENS

ALSO, IT SEEMS PPL HAVE VERY SHORT MEMORIES.. OR HAS EVERYONE ALREADY FORGOTTEN THE INITIAL TRAILERS GIVING TWO DIFFERING PORTRAYALS OF THE TWO FATHERS &THEYRE INFLUENCES ON KAL-EL/CLARK?

PA KENT : "YOURE NOT JUST ANYONE.. ONE DAY YOUR GONNA HAVE TO MAKE A CHOICE.. YOU HAVE TO DECIDE WHAT KIND OF MAN YOU WANA GROWUP TO BE.. WHOEVER THAT MAN IS.. GOOD OR BAD.. HES GOING TO CHANGE THE WORLD..."

JOR EL: "YOU WILL GIVE THE PPL AN IDEAL TO STRIVE TOWARDS... THEYLL RACE BEHIND YOU ..THEY WILL STUMBLE.. THEY WILL FALL.. BUT IN TIME.. THEY WILL JOIN YOU IN THE SUN. IN TIME.. YOU WILL HELP THEM ACCOMPLISH WONDERS..."

EXAMINE THE DYNAMICS OF THOSE TWO STATEMENTS THE SIMILARITIES THEY SHARE ARE THAT THEY BOTH COME FROM A PLACE OF FATHERLY LOVE &FOREBODING OF GREATNESS.. THIS IS WHERE ALL SIMILARITIES END

PA KENT CAUTIOUS SEEMINGLY WORLD WEARY.. THESE ARE THE WORDS OF AN HONEST ORDINARY MAN DOING HIS BEST TO GUIDE A CHILD HE'S SLOWLY REALISING WILL GROW UP TO BE THE WORLDS MOST POWERFUL BEING.. HE'S TORN BETWEEN WORRY OF WHAT THE GOVT WILL DO TO IF THEY FIND HIM &POSSIBLY WHAT CLARK'LL BECOME IF HE LOSES HIS WAY OR BECOMES SHUNNED AS AN OUTCAST/FREAK BLINDED BY POWER ETC..BUT EVEN WITH ALL THAT HE GIVES CLARK THE LESSON OF "CHOICE" HOWEVER IMPORTANT WHATEVER HE BECOMES IS UP TO HIM.. HE CONTROLS HIS DESTINY...THERES NOTHING MORE GROUNDED &HUMAN THAN THAT UNIQUE UNCERTAINTY OF WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS BUT FEELING AS THOUGH WERE STILL IN CONTROL.

JOR EL IN STARK CONTRAST ALMOST ALREADY KNOWS HIS SON WILL ATTAIN GREATNESS &RELAYS A SORT OF DESTINY UPON HIS LOST HEIR MAYBE IN TRADITION AS HE WAS EXPECTED TO BE AND HIS FATHER BEFORE HIM ETC. OR MAYBE AS A MAN OF SCIENCE &WISDOM WITH PRIOR KNOWLEDGE OF EARTH &OUR SITUATION.. HIS WORDS ARE FILLED WITH GREAT PRIDE &A SENSE OF LEGACY &DUTY HE FEELS IS HIS SONS BIRTHRIGHT TO CARRY OUT ON EARTH TO HELP HUMANS ASCEND BY LEADING THE WAY/SETTING EXAMPLE THEY CAN ALL FOLLOW.

THE EFFECTS THESE WORDS WILL HAVE ON KAL EL CANT BE UNDERESTIMATED AS HE'LL PROBLY BE AT A POINT OF SOUL SEARCHING BY THE TIME HE HEARS THEM. THIS IS WHAT WILL COMPLETE HIS JOURNEY OF SELF DISCOVERY &SET HIM ON HIS WAY TO BECOMING... YEH

ANYWAY MINOR RESERVATIONS ASIDE.. FROM THAT ANALYSIS ALONE I HAVE A FEELING IF THEYRE DOING WHAT I THINK THEYRE DOING.. THIS COULD NOT ONLY BE UP THERE WITH AVENGERS... BUT POSSIBLY BE THE DEFINING &QUINTISSENTIAL SUPERHERO MOVIE OF OUR GENERATION &THE BEST PORTRAYAL OF SUPES TO DATE. LETS HOPE.
