Superman Vs. Batman Buzz

A lot of buzz has been generated by the alleged tie up between the two DC Comics franchises Batman and Superman. Superman director Brian Singer seems to have his eye set on the project since Wolfgang Peterson (Troy, Poseidon) dropped the idea a few years ago.

Today, Singer tells MTV that he’s considering the “Batman Vs. Superman” film – but not before The Man of Steel has a couple more singly adventures.

"I've thought about it for a long time — even a longer time ago, actually," the director revealed. "But I don't know who would be the villain. I guess Batman would be the villain, but then he can't be too bad, because he is Batman”.

Once this is confirmed, it will officially become the most anticipated superhero movie-ever. Forget that Superman Returns was less than great. Forget that Batman might become the villain. This will rock!! It also has the potential to become the riskiest superhero movie yet. The amount of baggage this team-up already has, couypled with the scrutinizing eyes of critics and fanboys alike. It will become a tightrope walk from pre-production to premiere.

Too bad the Spiderman/Daredevil tie up never happened. The two being owned by different studios. That would have been cool too.

Actually sa mga comics, Its Batman who wins everytime. Superman may be ore powerful, but he's kinda dumb. Batman uses his wits. All Batman needs is Kryptonite lined gloves and he can kill Superman with his bare hands.

be this a piece of crap or not. It will be highly, HIGHLY anticipated.

Most likely it will be a piece of crap. But fans all over the world ...including myself will always cling to hope that it wont.
