Zack Snyder Meeting With Frank Miller To Discuss BATMAN/SUPERMAN Movie

Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns is said to be "informing" the storyline for the planned Batman/Superman movie, and now the comic book writer/artist is said to be meeting with director Zack Snyder soon to discuss the highly anticipated follow-up to Man Of Steel.

Fans were through the roof with excitement when it was revealed a couple weeks ago at San Diego Comic-Con that the Man Of Steel sequel/follow-up will in fact be a Batman/Superman film (rumored to be titled Batman Vs. Superman). Included in the announcement was a quote from Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns (which director Zack Snyder said will "inform" the movie's storyline) read by actor Harry Lennix. It turns out that the acclaimed comic book writer and artist wasn't aware of the announcement beforehand, and was surprised to hear it. Independent reports that Miller will be meeting with Snyder soon to discuss the project, and a source of the author tells the site, "Frank had no idea the announcement in San Diego was going to happen so it did come as a surprise. He’s going to be meeting up with Zack in the next few days to go over the plans for the Superman film so things should be clearer after that." What do you think of this news?

Set to begin filming early next year (reportedly in Toronto) for a Summer 2015 release, Warner Bros.' untitled Batman/Superman movie currently stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane. The new cinematic take on Batman has yet to be cast. Zack Snyder is directing from a script by David S. Goyer.

God damn it! [frick] that shit! Following TDKR storyline will be horrible. Have it be original.

And Batman better NOT BEAT SUPERMAN ASS.

Wish we were getting this team-up film instead with a different director, screenplay writer, and producer.



Oh well...........

Keep Frank Miller the fvck away from movies. He coked his mind away years ago.
RexDartEskimoSpy - 7/31/2013, 12:04 PM
They'll get better advice from that guy who's always muttering to himself about the mushroom people while he roots through the dumpster for day-old bagels.

Unless that IS Frank. I try to avoid looking him in the face.

I used to like Miller and his writing the man is a legend, but since he started writing sin city it seems he has been stuck in that sin city mind set. I mean just look at The Dark Knight Strikes Again it is a completely different story from The Dark Knight Returns. He is the wrong person to be getting any advice on for this movie because even though he was the writer of one of greatest comic books of all times his recent work shows just how much his skills have dwindled over the past few years. So like Levitikus I say go to the people responsible for the DCAU series because not only do they know their stuff but they have never failed in telling a good story for the characters of DC.

Oh no...

Wasn't Man of Steel dark enough? I loved The Dark Knight Returns, but there is no way, Kryptonite or no Kryptonite, that Batman would beat Superman in a fight.

I was hoping Man of Steel 2 would have more classic Superman elements. But with Miller involved, that hope is pretty much lost.

Ohhhhh crap.

The flashbacks to All-Star Batman & Robin are beginning... guess WB has decided to completely throw Supes under the bus...
Greengo - 7/31/2013, 12:11 PM
I think the prospect of getting a Batman with some Iron Man-esque armor is pretty cool.
Greengo - 7/31/2013, 12:12 PM
Maybe even fold in some Batman Beyond-esque tech.
MartianSupermanhunter22 - 7/31/2013, 12:13 PM
great, frank is an asshole that dislikes supes. He's the perfect guy.
Nubase - 7/31/2013, 12:13 PM
You will be all in awe soon, just wait till the first official pics come out and we will be all drooling

The Dark Knight Trilogy was already pretty much built on the tone set in Batman: Year One.

And with the realism Nolan/Goyer/Snyder were going for with MOS, it looks like Batman will be tonally the same as in TDK trilogy.
superman7 - 7/31/2013, 12:16 PM
Jesus [frick]ing god NO! Please god NO! He'll turn Superman into the biggest pussy imaginable! Has anyone forgotten the line "Im the goddamned batman!"?
RexDartEskimoSpy - 7/31/2013, 12:17 PM
Yeah, Firg, Batman Vs Bin Laden was brilliant. It was crazy of DC not to let him do it.
Supes17 - 7/31/2013, 12:17 PM
Goyer writing the script, Snyder going to Miller for creative input instead of the Nolans and Bruce Trimm...

Well, we're [frick]ed
alexi52 - 7/31/2013, 12:17 PM
so batman wins
MrEko - 7/31/2013, 12:17 PM
What the [frick] Snyder? What the actual [frick]!!! How are you gonna consult the one writer that writes hilarious [frick]ed up versions of Superman. Millar hates Superman, you idiot!!!
gmoney0505 - 7/31/2013, 12:19 PM
How so ya'll know he is giving advoce about what to do with Superman. HE could just be giving advice on the Batman aspect.
Elbarto63 - 7/31/2013, 12:20 PM
Miller!!??
Please God, no. A fascist Superman? A government lap dog??
FFFFVVVCCKK NOOOOO!!!
Snyder, please stay away from that guy. Miller has no idea how to write Superman. He's a really overrated writer.
jimdotbeep - 7/31/2013, 12:20 PM
Frank Miller can kiss my ass he hasn't written anything but SHIT for about a decade and he's a HUGE Asshole.
Vengeance - 7/31/2013, 12:20 PM
I would love to see elements of Scott Snyder's Batman.. also want the grey suit.
RexDartEskimoSpy - 7/31/2013, 12:21 PM
What, are you dense? Are you retarded? Who the hell do you THINK I am? I'm the goddamn BATMAN.

@FIRG: it's better than this

CaptainObvious - 7/31/2013, 12:21 PM
Aside from the fact that Miller is a racist and a misogynist, he can't write any other DC character except Batman, and even he has done a terrible job at writing him recently. We all know he hates Superman, which was evident in TDKR. It's one of the reasons I think that story is overrated. An unfair treatment of Superman.
GuardianAngel - 7/31/2013, 12:22 PM
@Levi I really disagree with letting Bruce Timm head the DCCU. The guy is great with animated films, but those only mostly appeal to fans. I think these films need to be more than what the animated films are.
Reasonnnn - 7/31/2013, 12:23 PM
LOL THE APOCALYPSE IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING. [frick]
Greengo - 7/31/2013, 12:23 PM
TheFox - 7/31/2013, 12:23 PM
Oh for the love of sweet merciful Jesus, NO!!!!!

Miller's a hack! He'll insist that they feature Batman kicking the sh*t out of Superman, and turn Superman into a fascist tool of a right-wing dictatorship!

HAVEN'T YOU SEEN THE SPIRIT, SNYDER?!? STAY AWAY!!!

Man of Steel 2: Krypto Begins
Nubase - 7/31/2013, 12:24 PM
Remember this report may not even be true..l'm just glad chris nolan is still invovled cos before the movie starts filming he will read the script and if any changes needs to be made he will make them.

Zack and goyer want inspiration, cos after all the movie is the dark knight returns comic, its the the speech that will inspire the movie thats all.

As long as nolan is there l'm not worried at all.
