Possible New MAN OF STEEL 2 Tidbits

"Jett" over at Batman On Film has had some solid information on past Bat-flicks, and he's now posted his 2014 mailbag in which he answers fan's questions. Much is speculation, but there may well be a few interesting nuggets of insider info sprinkled around too.

"Jett" has had some solid Batman related scoops in the past, and he's also been mistaken on a couple of occasions - so take the following however you wish. He answers the majority of the fan questions with his own guesses and opinions, but there is also the occasional "I've heard" or "I've been told" in there too so that stuff might be worth paying attention to. Anyway, here are the highlights, with thanks to our friends over at CBT for sifting through bullet pointing the info.



- Jason Mamoa will not be Martian Manhunter or Aquaman. Neither character is in the film.

- Wonder Woman could have “cameo plus” type role in the film, on par with what Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow did in Iron Man 2

- Expects the first look at Ben Affleck in early 2014 right around the time they will start filming in February.

- Has been told that the film is truly a Superman sequel and not a secret Justice League film like everyone suspects.

- Thinks that Arrow being included in the DC Movie Universe is wishful thinking.

- Believes we will get another Superman sequel without any other DC characters.

- Character wise he expects Batman to be, “ a healthy amount of Dark Knight Returns, a bit of Kingdom Come, and just a dash of Batman Beyond.”

- No Batman villains will be included.

- Doesn’t expect any shade of blue or tights for the Batsuit. More armor with Beyond and or Kingdom Come capabilities.


So there you have it. Some we knew already (No Bat-villains), some we could have guessed anyway (Glorified cameo for Wonder Woman), but there are some interesting new tidbits there too. What do you guys make of all of this? Sound off in the usual place.

Well, I hope this is just a rumor because a dash of The Dark Knight Returns, Kingdom Come and Batman Beyond sounds absolutely dreadful!
Alphadog - 1/4/2014, 10:46 AM
If this guy is right that i going to be very suprised with Wonder Woman's role. I know that people are going to hate this but iwas thinking that it would be pretty cool for the suit to have wings that fold like the Batman Beyond.
Buu - 1/4/2014, 10:47 AM
As for this being a Superman centric, who are they trying to kid? I sincerely hope this is just a rumor.
Nick56 - 1/4/2014, 10:47 AM
Hopefully this will put at least some silly speculation to rest...but probably not
Alphadog - 1/4/2014, 10:48 AM
Also, Batman needs a lot more gadgets. It's totally unrealistic that a vigilante with so much money would have so few weapons. Iron Man 3 had more Gadgets than the entire Dark Knight Trilogy put together. It's incredible that the batarangs didn't even appear in any movie of The Dark Knight Trilogy except for Batman Begins.
Nick56 - 1/4/2014, 10:49 AM
@Batmaniac - why can't it be superman centric? We know that it takes place after the events of MOS, features the returning cast from MOS, has 2 superman villains, according to this has WW in only a BW like role and Batman in a larger supporting role.
Alphadog - 1/4/2014, 10:49 AM
And no comments on Superman's suit I see. Superman should have a lighter shade of blue. Other than else I don't have anything that i care for them to change.
Nick56 - 1/4/2014, 10:51 AM
But this is still all speculation so who knows? I'm hoping we get an official title sometime soon which says whether or not this film is MAN OF STEEL + SUBTITLE, BvS, or JUSTICE LEAGUE (imo unlikely)
Buu - 1/4/2014, 10:52 AM
@Nick56

If you are going to throw Batman & Wonder Woman in the movie, they are going to have to balance the characters. If they sell Batman & Wonder Woman short, they deserve all the criticism that is sure to come their way if they do so.

If they want to make a Superman centric, leave Batman & Wonder Woman out of the movie!
Jaspion - 1/4/2014, 10:52 AM
Well, no blue is great news. I hope grey and black, with more armor like Arkham Origins.
Kingdom Come outfit is awful.
ReeferInferno - 1/4/2014, 10:52 AM
So... when are they going to give the film an actual title?
Nick56 - 1/4/2014, 10:52 AM
I'm guessing bats will likely need to wear a more armoured suit at some point to fight superman but the main suit will be more Jim Lee inspired like Kevin Smith said
TelaVizion - 1/4/2014, 10:54 AM
I thought we all knew it would be "focused" on Supes. It is a sequel to Man of Steel featuring other DC super heroes.
Nick56 - 1/4/2014, 10:55 AM
@Batmaniac Good point, I certainly think Batman and Superman will be more balanced (with slight leaning towards superman given the timeline and rumoured villains) but I still think WW will have a smaller role - but we'll see.
Alphadog - 1/4/2014, 10:55 AM
@Nick56 Well this film has arguably a lot more to do. Explore the daily planet, the consequences of Superman going public, the relationship between Clark and Lois, Superman's role in the world, set up the other characters and other franchises, etc...
Interestein - 1/4/2014, 10:55 AM
Can it please be called MAN OF STEEL: DAWN OF THE DARK KNIGHT!?
TelaVizion - 1/4/2014, 10:56 AM
Looked up this "Kingdom Come" suit y'all talking bout.... ewwwww
Prime - 1/4/2014, 11:01 AM
'' Believes we will get another Superman sequel without any other DC characters.''

If any of this is true....this is the only point I care about.
Buu - 1/4/2014, 11:02 AM
Remember guys, this is coming from the same guy that said Ben Affleck WOULD NOT be Batman. So it wouldn't surprise me if Jett is talking out of his ass once again.
TheSonOfKrypton - 1/4/2014, 11:02 AM
So in short, Batman is old, this isn't Justice League, don't shit yourselves?
CharacterAssassin - 1/4/2014, 11:02 AM
Not sure if it was rumored before but was it said that there was going to be a slight modification to Supes suit in the upcoming film? Anyone know about this?
Buu - 1/4/2014, 11:03 AM
@Arrow

So in short, these are rumors being spread by the same guy that was sure Ben Affleck wouldn't be Batman.
Custer28 - 1/4/2014, 11:11 AM
It Looks Great Although It's Only Rumor.
TheSonOfKrypton - 1/4/2014, 11:12 AM
@Batmaniac

So in short, we're being sold short?

;)
TheSonOfKrypton - 1/4/2014, 11:14 AM
@GoldenOne33

I wouldn't get too hung up on the suits from TDKR, Kingdom Come and Batman Beyond. Although you could be right, I'm fairly sure it was solely referencing to Batman's actual character and personality, especially since there's another point about his costume.
luffycapri - 1/4/2014, 11:15 AM
No no no, this is justice league all the way lol
ForeverPowerful - 1/4/2014, 11:17 AM
Don't...hate...any of that. Wow. I was expecting to read something that was going to make me pissed. I figured Wonder Woman would get the same amount of screen time like Black Widow.

Relieved to hear Batman won't have blue on him, or tights (like anyone really expected him to wear that).

So basically this is what Iron Man 2 was. I'm alright with that as long as the focus is more on Superman. This is his film.
Buu - 1/4/2014, 11:18 AM
@Arrow

In short, this guy is more than likely trying to pass of his personal speculations as 'whispers'.

In other words, he is more than likely speaking out of his ass, haha!
Darthzilla - 1/4/2014, 11:21 AM
[frick] armor bats
TheSonOfKrypton - 1/4/2014, 11:23 AM
@ForeverPowerful

Holy brainfarts Batman...

THIS IS TOTALLY IRON MAN 2!

... Shit.
Buu - 1/4/2014, 11:23 AM
Black Widow didn't have a 'cameo-plus' type of role in Iron Man 2, she had a supporting role.

ALegendaryPanda - 1/4/2014, 11:26 AM
CAN WE JUST GET SOMETHING OFFICIAL FOR GOD'S SAKE?!

These rumors are driving me nuts. Lol
Super12 - 1/4/2014, 11:26 AM
Every single one of those things are exactly what I was hoping for. Thank you!!!
Zordan - 1/4/2014, 11:26 AM
good good
DraculaX - 1/4/2014, 11:30 AM
Interesting.

If Jason Mamoa is officially cast in this film, I think it'll be Metallo or Doomsday. Maybe Vandal Savage
Buu - 1/4/2014, 11:30 AM
"Afflect wont' be the new Batman, but I wish he would be just to piss off fanboys and have them freak out." - Jett from BatmanOnFilm

2 weeks later, Ben Affleck was announced as Batman. Credibility LOST!
McNyagano - 1/4/2014, 11:32 AM
"Wonder Woman could have “cameo plus” type role in the film, on par with what Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow did in Iron Man 2."

That doesn't make any sense, Black Widow was a supporting character in IM2.
Buu - 1/4/2014, 11:38 AM
@GoldenOne33

No, he passed it off as a scoop just like he is with this bullshit now.

This however sounds like his opinion, especially when he starts his sentence with "he believes" and "he expects".
SuperCat - 1/4/2014, 11:39 AM
Have a feeling Mamoa will be Lex's bodyguard.
airbeyonder18 - 1/4/2014, 11:39 AM
If it is all true I'm ok with this news..
