Warner Brothers has released the official title to the Man of Steel sequel, the film fans have been calling Batman vs Superman. The official title is Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This does confirm the that movie will be a Batman against Superman. Not sure how Wonder Woman is supposed to fit into this, but maybe she stops the fight.
This movie will serve as the prequel to Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Justice League which is anticipated to be released in 2018.
Well we all knew they were trying to lead up to a Justice League movie, but I am not sure this is the proper way to go. The title Dawn of Justice does give us some idea of where they might be going with the movie. With any luck it will emphasis the different approaches that Batman and Superman have when it comes to justice. The end of the movie should highlight the similarities that they have when it comes to justice which would explain the creation of the Justice League. Since the movie is only showcasing a Superman villain as far as we know, Bruce Wayne is probably going to have some business dealings with Lex Luthor. Since we all know Luthor is shady, it would not be surprising to see Batman investigate Luthor and thus run into Superman. Doing it that way would be a great way to highlight the differences between Batman and Superman. I guess we are just going to have to wait and see.
What are your speculations about the movie?
Three people have been cast in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel; Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey (300: Rise of the Empire), and Tao Okamoto (The Wolverine).
Snyder had this to say about these casting choices:
“Holly has always been one of my favorite actresses; she has immense talent and is always captivating on screen,” Snyder said via press release. “I had an opportunity to meet her a while back and knew instantly that I had to work with her, so as we began writing the script I made sure to create a role specifically for her. I just had the good fortune to work with Callan on ‘300: Rise of an Empire’ and was very impressed with his incredible talent. He’s a fantastic actor and I’m looking forward to having the chance to work with him again. And, quite simply, Tao is a striking presence whose beauty is aptly rivaled by her amazing abilities as an actress. I’m really excited to have her joining us on this adventure.”
No news about who they will be playing but they are supposed to be playing original characters. I guess well will not be seeing them play any iconic favorites.
Also do not expect to see Russell Crowe reprising his role in the Man of Steel sequel. Crowe had this to say, “I don’t think they’re going to use me again,…I think they’re jumping onto a different stream. … They’re going with the different superhero worlds colliding.”
I will not lie I am happy that we will not be seeing Jor-El again, because well there was too much of him in the first movie. I have always been a Pa Kent fan so I would have liked to have seen more of that character. Besides I don’t know about anyone else but Jor-El’s all-knowing thing was getting kind of annoying.
Are you happy that Snyder is creating some original characters or would you rather he use lore characters?
