SUPERMAN VS BATMAN - What’s The Goddamn Story?

Despite certain Superman/Batman scenes being filmed this weekend there’s still quite a lot about the movie we don’t yet know (including the official title). Here we speculate on where the story may be headed plus the reason for the two iconic characters going head to head. Check it out after the jump!

Its going to be about the same shit, just rehashed and modified. The writers have been the same the past decades with this.
Copy and Paste. I mean, its not like they have tonnes of material to pull from...right?
...another Lex Luthor entry with the same villains from the latest movies from the same entries.
I mean, its so hard for them to just for ONCE, just ONCE, to use someone or something new...Hollywood, so predictable.

Love these podcast Mr. Sunday! Keep'em coming!... And good luck on finding that new theme song!

The movie is a lead in to the Justice league. Whatever the story is will not be a VS for long. It will be a story that's needs the skill and power of both ( plus surprises. Yes there will be )to deal with. Also the ideal that VS instead of AND or meets is still open.

I'm actually afraid that Goyer and Snyder are going to go the route with "they fight each other and lex shows up and boom kryptonite". A majority of you are suggesting this and I'm sorry fans but it's way too generic and I've seen this story in the comics a bunch of times. That's my problem with fans they are uncreative and they just go with the norm. One of the reasons I love MOS was because it was DIFFERENT and unpredictable. I hope they completely turn the table here and do something different. Do something never done before! Don't listen to fans, listen to the feedback of other writers! I hope they chat with either Morrison, Dini, or Timm like they did with Batman Begins. Hell I want them to change kryptonite, I've been a reader for 22+ years and a fan of the animated stuff but please do something different. That is all.

They will need one great story to counteract the feeling everyone will have when watching it:

Ben Affleck as Batman? UGH!

Movie better be great!!

MAC go die and burn your ideas if you are never going to present them. You go on here everyday unhappy and you boast of your ideas, well do it bitch! What are you accomplishing by going on an online site and speaking to random people, where you could actually go to WB and present your ideas. Do something or shut the [frick] up. Got problems, fix them and be a doer.
Humby - 10/18/2013, 4:03 PM
People can call this Superman VS Batman all they want, but in the end, that isn't what this movie will turn out to be. AT MOST, they will be enemies for the first half of the film, before joining forces.
Mrsinister - 10/18/2013, 4:04 PM
I'm so excited for this movie. I have no idea why some of you hate so quickly.
Rokyn - 10/18/2013, 4:06 PM
I don't know about you [frick]tards but I have waited for this movie since 1989. Fans like me have always wanted this team up. You guys are just never satisfied with shit and you are all cynical brats. Some are just some Marvel fans who I don't know if they have lives. I still can't believe Avengers even happened. I'm excited let's go!
JoeMomma29 - 10/18/2013, 4:14 PM
LOL! Come one people they have barely started production on this movie and it is being crucified for not having a title yet. When does the movie come out? Oh yeah summer of 2015!!!!!!!!!

Arrowhead77 - 10/18/2013, 4:14 PM
unlike most people on this site, I will actually wait to see the movie before I Judge it
JoeMomma29 - 10/18/2013, 4:16 PM
@ OmegaDaGod

I disagree the site itself does not promote hate towards DC infact if you look at most polls regarding DC they are always positive. It is the few handful of Marvelite trolls that love to troll on every article. I crack up how they feel threatened by poor horrible DC!
SuperCat - 10/18/2013, 4:21 PM
Batman is gonna help Supes with losing his virginity.
SuperCat - 10/18/2013, 4:24 PM
Lol @ B&Y

I've been using that word all day at work!

I rode a horse once but it gave me the Clop.
marvel72 - 10/18/2013, 4:31 PM
what's the story? the mayor has kicked superman out of metropolis because of all the damage he has caused,so he now operates in gotham city. however batman isn't happy that superman has come to gotham. so he wants him out,he doesn't want gotham to look like metropolis did after that fight with zod.

hence batman vs superman.
Rokyn - 10/18/2013, 4:32 PM
I know what I said sounded completely naive and unrealistic but really dude you go on here everyday and complain, guess what, WE GET IT. If you think bitching and complaining on shit will do anything, it won't. I respect your opinion and I actually like your input but when you sit here like a Buddha and complain, it doesn't accomplish. Sometimes I wonder if this is a medium to release your anger or just troll. I tell people all the time, if you're unhappy with something, do something about it. Complaining at a site is not going to accomplish nothing. But if you don't give a shit then why do you continue to complain? Paradox? I'm actually trying to encourage to do something. Look at Geoff Johns he started as an intern with Donner and look at other people. Push your idea any way possible. Use the internet as you please!
Rokyn - 10/18/2013, 4:35 PM
And I actually love your ideas MAC but dude really do something about it if you really feel confident. If you truly believe in your ideas, you will push them regardless the circumstance. A little naive but I don't care, have faith.
Mike89 - 10/18/2013, 4:37 PM
Whats the story? I have no clue. We dont even know who the villain is, or if there will even be one.
spideymania26 - 10/18/2013, 4:37 PM
hey b/y, shout out to the steelers beating the ravens ass this weekend
Rokyn - 10/18/2013, 4:40 PM
You wrote an idea about MM a while back right? I loved that. You commented on a few articles with some ideas but it was very subtle. You and Levi threw some ideas around a while back. From what I saw, I really thought it was great. Your animated shit is brilliant and should happen!

GerMan - 10/18/2013, 4:42 PM
did nolan steal the idea for joker´s scars?



andy serkis in stormbreaker 2006




heath leadger in the dark knight 2008
pointman - 10/18/2013, 4:46 PM
@GerMan
Nolan ripped off several idea's for the dark night. The beginning was Michael Mann's heat almost note for note.
Rokyn - 10/18/2013, 4:46 PM
Yes and there was an idea you had for a MM movie. Levi actually spoke highly of MM after you explained to him your ideas and stuff. Regardless I dug all that stuff man.
spideymania26 - 10/18/2013, 4:47 PM
does anybody really want to see an older batman,shouldnt he and superman be the same age
spideymania26 - 10/18/2013, 4:49 PM
appreciate it b/y, never too late to turn the season around especially in our division lol
SauraLilvera - 10/18/2013, 4:49 PM
If Affleck looks like anybody, I'd pick Injustice Superman long before I thought of Bruce Wayne.
Demongod20 - 10/18/2013, 4:50 PM
@ BlackJack10

This site leans DC but Marvel gets love for being a Comic Book company that produces there own movies. People are only hard on WB and Fox because they are movie studios that don't appreciate and/or understand there comicbook properties.
Mike89 - 10/18/2013, 4:51 PM
Batmaniac

"I don't see the obsession with needing to know everything about this movie 2 years before its released. You need to remember that they don't need to give you weekly updates on their plans, and they most likely want to keep as much as they can a secret for as long as possible."

Agreed. I remember a few months ago, so called "spoilers" on the possibility of brainiac appearing in MOS, that would set up MOS 2. It ended up as BS. As it turns out WB had been planning a Superman vs Batman movie beforehand.
DioFoRio - 10/18/2013, 4:52 PM
I just hope they don't take Gusto's "concept" for the new Batman costume... Detroit Batman..


Rokyn - 10/18/2013, 4:53 PM
@MAC I expect the movie to have a really great plot with good dialog but with moments of bad dialog and some random action. That's just me judging from MOS. But if we see Batman Begins Goyer and Watchmen Snyder, this will be AMAZING.
Ghjklbnm - 10/18/2013, 4:54 PM
Seriously, if it isn't titled The World's Finest, then I think everyone will be sorely disappointed.
spideymania26 - 10/18/2013, 4:54 PM
bottom line in my opinion, marvel makes better movies and dc makes better comics especially with this marvel now crap, ockspidey, a.vs.x, infinity. the only ones i even like right now are hulk and thor,awesome stories
Mike89 - 10/18/2013, 4:54 PM
"I predict this film with have a cool plot but Goyer will struggle with handling the Batman/Superman chemistry."

I think that will depend more on Affleck and Cavill's chemistry.
superbigguy32 - 10/18/2013, 4:56 PM
The fight between Zod & Superman that destroyed Metropolis could be the cause of Lex Luthors bald head. He could've got injured in some way and that could be one of the issues Lex has with Superman. And I still think Cole Hauser (School Ties, 2 Fast 2 Furious, & Higher Learning) would be an excellent choice for Lex.
darkerphoenix - 10/18/2013, 5:01 PM
i'm so excited for this!!!!! hope for lots of JL cameos :D
