Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Yep. That’s what they’re naming the Man of Steel sequel. Oh, did you forget this was going to be a sequel to last year’s Superman movie? You’re not alone apparently.
It’s seeming more and more like Warner Bros. is looking to reshape the Man Of Steel follow-up into a sort of Justice League prologue. If it’s not already obvious to you that they’re scrambling to catch up to Marvel with an “Avengers” of their own, let me remind you that Wonder Woman has been said to have a “prominent role” in the movie. -and because introducing Wonder Man in a Superman sequel that will also introduce Batman isn’t enough, the movie will also feature Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and quite possibly Aquaman (rumored to be Game of Throne’s allum Jason Momoa) as well.
A recent script rewrite from Chris Terrio (Argo) and the title of the movie being Dawn of Justice only further cement my belief that we’re no longer looking at a Superman sequel but a massive set-up for the recently announced Justice League movie.
While it’s exciting to know that Warner is serious about making the Justice League movie happen, I worry that Superman and Batman’s fascinating relationship will be pushed to the wayside and overcrowded by these other characters.
Also, why is it Batman v Superman?
Was “vs.” one character two many?
