By DCGuy - 7/29/2014
I must make it clear that before I start, these 5 questions cannot be answered BY the movie it self, they must all have the ability to be answered BEFORE the movie drops, so none of these questions are plot, story or script oriented, thank you for reading...



1. What type of Lex Luthor are we really going to see? : This question has been on my mind for a while, with reports that ranhge from Lex being in a gang, to being filled with tattoos, to having long silky beautiful sexual fantasy provoking hair, also we heard about Lex Corp being a different company in this encarnation, while we saw a new logo too that does not give away much. I have high hopes for Jesse Eisenberg on this role, his work on multiple movies in a short time have made me a fan of the young actor.

WHEN CAN THIS BE ANSWERED? :  Easily this could be answered by a production report but then again those have failed in the past so I lean here towards the first Trailer for the movie that reveals a little bit of Luthor OR maybe a viral marketing campaign by DC/WB about the daily planet reporter Lois Lane doing a story on Lex.

2. What role will Scoot (LOL SCOOT) McNiary play ?: Recently the actor (who's parents clearly have a sense of humor) revealed that he is indeed a part of the Zack Snyder helmed movie, of course speculation on his ham ran wild for months, personally I hope he plays Flash altho I do admit he has a Hal Jordan look to him but since I do not want Hal jordan to be part of this future encarnation of the Justice league I can't lean towards that.

WHEN CAN THIS BE ANSWERED? : Soon? really just like the release of Batman first look, The Batmobile, Batman's head shot, Superman new costume and other details about the movie they all came very randomly so I expect this to be dropped at any moment also.

3. Will we get a Video game along with the movie? : We all know that Rocksteady can give us a great game (Arkham Asylum & Arkham City) we also know that WB Canada did a good game with Arkham Origins, we know either of these studios could give us a game worthy of the movie, imagine a sandbox game with Superman, Batman & Wonder woman as playable characters and while Lex could also be a character in the game I do wonder if they would stick to the story of the movie or go with a little bit more freedom...

WHEN CAN THIS BE ANSWERED? : After Arkham Knight drops or maybe E3  2015 but then again Rocksteady is busy finishing AK, WB Canada is making a Arkham Origins Sequel  or so the rumors say...But I remain hopeful 

4. Will WB/DC embrace the fans ? : for more than a year now and even more recently is the past months the number of fan posters, theory, specutlation, ETC has been non stop online, now the big question is will DC/WB let the fans be part of the promotion/marketing of this movie? will we get a chance, a constest, a competition something that makes fans get involved? it's one thing to do a poster for fun but imagine the AMAZING art we could get by WB/DC announcing that the BEST fan made poster sent to them will be made official in some way or will be used on the promotion for the films? will it might remind a few of twilight I can assure you now that we will see TEAM BATMAN & TEAM SUPERMAN art soon enough, but in fairness WB/DC should make an online marketing strategy for fans to submitt art, it can get a little fixed by proffesionals and be made official into maybe the last poster for the film? I know would love that specially to see a CBM.com user win! (Hi Doopie!)

WHEN CAN THIS BE ANSWERED? : Late 2015 early 2016.

5. How will DC/WB make sure to make fans forever remember the most historic and anticipated super hero team up? : let's face it no matter if you are a Marvel, DC, casual or just not even a fan EVERYONE  knows Batman & Superman they are part of the worlds culture, they are beyond comics, they are not just characters anymore they are inspirations, they are models to which people take pride, they are part of our live every single day it can be something as small as going out for any reason and seeing a child or adult with a Supes or bats shirt/hat/shoes/belt/socks/ETC...even more if you spend your time online where anything and everything revolves back to DC VS MARVEL or Bats v Supes Vs [Insert Marvel hero/team here], this is historic, for the first time in over 75 years these 2 will be REAL and they will share not an universe but a world, a scene and a friendship (and a fight!), this has to be hyped as such because at the end of the day this movie no matter how much it takes in the box office, no matter the reviews, the acting, the script, the dialogue, the skinny or buff actors, the costumes or the inspirations, this movie is HISTORIC.

WHEN CAN THIS BE ANSWERED? : Comic Con 2015, DC/WB launches a website dedicated to this movie and hypes it as such, we get a trailer just for comic con '15 with a Supes/Bats interraction, we get Henry & Ben IN COSTUME at the event (BUT ONLY AT THE END and for 5 mins or less) any or all of these things are possible and should be done along with more to make sure this movie is given the historic value it is worth.

I am really interested to know whom Scoot McNiary il b playin..
I think he looks a bit old to play Flash or Gl.
DCGuy - 7/29/2014, 4:01 PM
@Darktower me too, but I think he's in his 30's so he's ok age wise maybe some make up but who knows
GliderMan - 7/29/2014, 4:02 PM
McNiary as Flash or GL? And I've heard Nightwing? Lmao, what the hell. I can't see that at all.
Darktower - 7/29/2014, 4:05 PM
@DCGuy
ya part from that, he is a gud actor.
I really wanted Mark Strong to Play Lex.
DCGuy - 7/29/2014, 4:07 PM
@GliderMan we have to wait & see
DCGuy - 7/29/2014, 4:08 PM
@Darktower I'm ok with Jesse honestly I did not want anyone just did NOT want Bryan Cranston.
Darktower - 7/29/2014, 4:17 PM
@DCGuy
i feel Bryan Cranston is too old for the part,
but i could see him as Jim Gordon..
DCGuy - 7/29/2014, 4:18 PM
true bro @Darktower
Brainiac13 - 7/29/2014, 4:26 PM
Wow!

Your Articles are getting better......

I want more info on LL as well as the 2nd villain.......I guess we'll see them in a trailer hopefully.

CommanderShepard - 7/29/2014, 4:56 PM
I thought Scoot was playing Morgan Edge and working for Lex?
CommanderShepard - 7/29/2014, 4:59 PM
#1 for me is I want to see how Aquaman is going to look in this film? After Supes, Bats, and WW set the internet on fire with their awesome costumes, I am fricking excited to see the Aquaman Costume.

Diggle says its badass....
KingNTheKong - 7/29/2014, 5:44 PM
@CommanderSheperd

So you BELIEVE the fake script!

-----------------------------------

Anyway I agree with it all, and I'd love for them to do the contest. I wouldn't enter (even though I meddle on the fan poster arts) but would love to see someone awesome like SkinnyGlasses to get recognition. He's dope foreal!!!! Also does @Doopie even do fan posters? I know he does drawings, but I don't think that counts. I'd love to see some of his comic strips featuring Batman and Superman becoming short animated marketing skits or something though.
BlackIceJoe - 7/29/2014, 9:45 PM
I personally think Scoot is going to play Maxwell Lord. The reason why WB likes reusing past ideas. In the past WB was working on a Batman/Superman film. Then it got canceled. Now today WB is back making a Batman/Superman movie. In the past the George Miller Justice League movie had Maxwell Lord as the villain and I see that happening again. I just don't think you will see his true intentions until the Justice League movie comes out.
DCGuy - 7/29/2014, 10:03 PM
I very much doubt that WB will cast Scoot as a bad guy specially with Affleck backing him he will get a lengthy role that could possibly get his own movie,but if he does play a villain I see him going for at least 3 movies even if it is not the main villain.
DaVinci31 - 7/29/2014, 11:09 PM
I really hope this guy turns out to be The Riddler, or possibly even Scarecrow.

DCGuy - 7/30/2014, 12:37 AM
@DaVinci31 Scoot can easily with a few make up or simple effects play almost any Bad/good character anyone from the joker,Flash, GL, The Riddler, 2 face, Grayson, ManHunter, Aquaman & others!
Doopie - 7/30/2014, 2:08 AM
I think Scoot will only have a small (and non-JL member) role. It's be nice if he was a Batman villain but I don't know if they're gonna go down that path.

Would love a game based around this, and there probably will be one, but whereas Batman games can get away with having loads of thugs to fight, Superman would go through them in a second. Hard to find cannon-fodder for supes and WW unless it's robots or aliens

@DCGuy - I don't really do posters but I have touched on Batman V Superman
Klone - 7/30/2014, 3:23 AM
So because his pal his Affleck he won't be a villain? That's not how it works. An actor, if the writing is good and the film will be big, won't get scared of being a villain. It's a role to add to their resume, it's money and they are in the spotlight.
Darktower - 7/30/2014, 3:25 AM
MightyZeus - 7/30/2014, 4:18 AM
All questions will be answered or perhaps revealed soon.
MexicanSuperman - 7/30/2014, 5:43 AM
@ DCguy, Scoot is just a nickname for that guy.
DrunkenNukem - 7/30/2014, 7:28 AM
"How will DC/WB make sure to make fans forever remember the most historic and anticipated super hero team up?"

They are already doing it....this would be epic
DrunkenNukem - 7/30/2014, 7:30 AM
yeah what @Klone said...and doesn´t matter if its Bruce´s pal...i mean Affleck´s pal...this is a Snyder movie..he calls the shots here
DCGuy - 7/30/2014, 9:08 AM
@Doopie don't make me look bad do some posters pls LOL

it's really wait & see with Mr.Scoot, also for the game I can see them doing a side plot just for the inclusion of worthy opponents
DCGuy - 7/30/2014, 9:11 AM
@Klone it's my theory man, look at Nolan with his films he got half of the Inception cast on TDK trilogy it could work the same way because we don't know how strong that affleck pull is backstage, he could be already a director for a future movie for WB or DC so I doubt very much that if he says hey Zack give this guy this role because I wanna use him in 3 more movie that they would be like nah he's a one movie bad guy, but again just my theory/opinion
DCGuy - 7/30/2014, 9:12 AM
@Darktower, nice find bro hahaha
DCGuy - 7/30/2014, 9:12 AM
@MightyZeus I hope so!
DCGuy - 7/30/2014, 9:13 AM
@TheMexicanSuperman no it's his name.
DCGuy - 7/30/2014, 9:15 AM
@DrunkenNukem yeah but we need more hype everyone needs to know that this is not just a [frick]ing movie this is history on film and that it will change this forever for fans & comics lovers

also look at the Klone response comment to see why I think Scoot won't be a baddie
