To Those Excited For Superman/Batman Film

Where is the hate for batman? I mean, I specifically remember the hate and vitriol the Amazing Spiderman got for being announced 3 years after Spiderman 3 ended. It was so intense. Yet here we have a new batman announcement only one year, I think I need to say it again , one year, after he just finished having 3 films. Yet no one is up in arms? Why? Some hate wolverine for his role in the xmen when he has had only 2 solo films in the character's history. People seem to dislike iron man for having a trilogy and being in Avengers (yes I don't see the logic in that either), and some seem to dislike loki for being in thor 1, 2, and Avengers. But in reality, Iron Man wasn't in hulk, or Captain america, or thor. Other characters got to shine. And The Amazing Spiderman got announced 3 years after Spiderman 3, and came out 5 years after 3. Yet Stark, wolverine and spidey got flack for being popular.

When in reality, batman has been in (including MoS2) 4 of the last 5 DC films!!! Just think about that for a second. Is this not shocking/worrying to some? And not a single person seems to care. Lol why is that? I never really hated the spiderman announcement, or stark's place in the MCU, or wolverine's place within the Xmen. But I would just like to know why they get criticisms, but Batman doesn't...

The people who complain about Batman, Wolverine, Iron Man, Spider-Man, etc. for being in too many movies are CLOWNS. Those guys are basically the top dogs in the comic book world, and it's only natural that they would get more movies than other no name comic characters. If you don't like that they are in "too many movies", don't watch.

As Wolverine is the most popular xmen character and Spiderman is the most popular Marvel character. But they still got hate. Lol I just want to know the reasoning behind this.

Yeah. Lets hate on something instead of be excited for something just because. That sounds fun.

Batman is a lot easier to portray on screen because he's been successful at it before. It only makes sense they would go back to him. He's also arguably the most iconic Superhero of all time (tied with Superman) so its not just the comic crowd he attracts either.

We need a live action Justice League. In order to do that we need more characters. If they have to redo Batman first because he's the easiest, then so be it.

Lol ok. Spiderman is essentially marvel. And wolverine embodies the xmen. And they got hate instead of being excited about something just because. I still have not seen a legitimate answer as to why batman isn't getting this same treatment

They could instead make a wonder woman or flash or aquaman film first. It is the Justice League after all. Not the Batman, Superman, and e.veryone else league. I still think they should've done everyone else first, finishing off with batman right before the justice league film. Would've given batman a breather, and given others a chance to shine.

@novi_homines: I don't disagree. I would love to see the rest of the JLA get their own movies. I just don't think thats the easiest thing to do either.

Plus I mean...EVERYONE is going to want to go see Batman/Superman. Even if you are sick of Batman. There's no better way to generate momentum, as long as the movie is good.

@novi_homines: because it's the only way to have a justice league movie. And nobodies going to complain because we're getting more bang for our buck. Other than just re-creating the same thing. If the new spiderman or wolverine movies were being created to fit into the avengers universe than I'm sure there would be les hate. Now a days it's all about the shared universe kind've thing..and anything other than that just isn't as exciting anymore.

He's gotten a lot of hate for it. Practically every Supes/Bats dupe thread has at least one person who bashes him for UNJUSTLY HORNING IN ON SUPERMAN'S DESERVED TRILOGY.

^The caps up there aren't serious, to be clear.

@novi_homines: Every one knows that Howard the duck is the most popular marvel.

How is it the only way to have a JL movie? They could easily take this time ,since batman just finished a trilogy, to make a wonderwoman, flash, MM, or aquaman film, then have batman be the very last film before the JL. I understand batman must be redone before a JL film must be made. but there are other justice league members within the justice league. Lol

@novi_homines: They're the founding members, it only makes perfect since. Plus this movie is long over due. Plus they just kind've have to. You start with your most accomplished characters first so that you have a better chance at breaking ground. Makes it easier for the storyline and shared universe to tie in.
