Superman Vs Batman

Its been over 40 years since I read comic books. I alwasy thought Superman & Batman were friends and on the same team. Why are they making a movie about them fighting each other?

 

You would think it would be over quick, since Superman has Superpowers and Batman may be strong, but he is mortal.

Batman and Superman have been 'frenemies' for some time ... ever since Batman was 're-invented' as the Dark Knight. I don't think Superman likes the 'darker' side of his crime-fighting buddy ...

 

Not that this is a valid excuse for making a film based on the flimsiest of story ideas (but, hey, since when has THAT stopped anyone?)

After seeing "Man of Steel" recently (another "dark & gritty" version of a beloved hero) and not digging it much, I don't have high hopes for the "team up" movie either.

 

Right now Marvel is kicking DC's ass with movie adaptations of their properties. At least the films in the so called "Marvel Cinematic Universe" look like they're being made by people who may have actually read the comic books from time to time.

 

It bugs me that the DC films have become so unrelentingly grim. Yeah, it makes sense for Batman, but I really hope that the current Superman comics don't portray him the same as he was in "Man of Steel." Superman works best when they play him as a slightly square, Red White and Blue Boy Scout. The first Superman film w/Reeve captured that perfectly. Bryan Singer tried to build a bridge between that era and the new "grim & gritty" mindset in "Superman Returns," and when that didn't work I guess they must have said "F*ck it, let's go full on Dark Knight with him too, the kids LOVE that hyper violent Christopher Nolan sh*t!"

DC is scrambling to catch up to Marvel. Marvel put in work to set the foundations for their characters, and are now set for these kinds of collaborations. DC is hoping they can jump straight into it. Also, Marvel took a risk with Guardians of the Galaxy, which paid off better than anyone could have imagined, so expect them to do more films of lesser-known characters.

Its unfortunate that this type of film is what the "general public" wants. Long gone are the days of artful, factual good films now are the days of the formulaic drivel for big $$$$ mindset or lack thereof of minds that is.

That's why you gotta get into the indie scene, and foreign. It's pretty much just Hollywood pumping out this shit.

I still haven't forgiven Helloweird for what they did to John Constantine/Hellblazer ...

    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.

    • New video for 'Dance'.

    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave 
    • Gonna post this as just recently discovered them, and loving what they do. I know most here wont care due to not being their style or not singing in English, but as a Band Maid fan, this shit is right up my street. They are a South Korean band. Posting two songs. One original and one a cover (Maneskin, a band I dont really care about) which is kinda impressive seeing as the song is in Italian, a language they don't speak ha ha
