…Look, I want to see Batman v. Superman, too.

But I have to ask: why the shocked cheers?

…They’re showing you Batman. Everybody knows that Batman v. Superman is coming. So it is not exactly a surprise to see Superman on the screen, there. Just saying, that’s all.

PS: Batman would win, of course.

“Superman.”

Main Title from Superman (Instrumental)John Williams

Why can’t they just give me this in a Superman movie?  I do not understand why I have been denied this in every modern Superman movie. It has to be deliberate, but I do not understand why.

This is a pretty cool Superman fan video.

I assume that they used a drone for the shots.

Via Do-Gooder Press.

PS: Or did they actually use a GoPro somehow?

Is one of those light enough to be put on a drone?

@JVLast speaks for me in this matter.

When it comes to WHAT MUST BE the essential nature and conflict in the upcoming Batman/Superman movie, take Jon’s words as if they had come from my throat, with my voice. I mean no disrespect to Nolan, mind, but Jon’s point is well-taken:

In Miller’s world, Superman and Batman embody two polar views of the human condition. Superman believes in the perfectibility of man and the eventual triumph of the City of God over the City of Man. Batman does not. In fact, he views even the City of Man as a tenuous achievement, and one which must be constantly defended against the depredations of human nature. He believes in the Enlightenment, but not in its inevitability. And because of this, he believes that an übermensch such as Superman is at least as much a threat to civilization as he is its savior.

This is satisfying in a way that using the Nolan Batman could not be. Christopher Nolan’s Batman exists in a very different universe that Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. A movie that sought to bring them together would struggle for coherence, because Nolan’s Batman would ultimately welcome a Superman. But a Superman-Batman movie must have tension between the two characters if it’s going to have anything interesting to say.

Although I will add this: Nolan’s Batman likewise labors under the burden of being, at the end, alone. There can only be one Dark Knight in Nolan’s universe at a time. Heck, the entire plot of The Dark Knight Rises would be nonsensical in the DCU.  But Miller’s Batman can live, easily enough, in a wider super-heroic milieu.

Somewhere, there’s at least three people muttering about how *their* moms…

…threw out their copies:

Rare Superman comic sells for $317,200

NEW YORK – A rare copy of the first comic book featuring Superman has sold for $317,200 in an Internet auction. The previous owner of Action Comics No. 1 bought it for less than a buck.

It’s one of the highest prices ever paid for a comic book, a likely testament to the volume’s rarity and its excellent condition, said Stephen Fishler, co-owner of the auction site ComicConnect.com and its sister dealership, Metropolis Collectibles.

Heck, even the 50th Anniversary Reprint Edition has a decent street value. But look on the bright side – and, for that matter, all around you: somewhere in that pile of stuff that we call a ‘house’ is an item that a descendant will be able to hock for a small fortune.

The trick is figuring out which one.
