You guys, you guys, MORE BATMAN?! I'm like way to hype just thinking about another Batman movie coming out! If you haven't heard, Warner Brothers has just announced that there will be a sequel to the latest Superman movie, Man of Steel. And it will be either Batman vs. Superman or vice versa, unless they come up with a more clever title, you know, like The Dark Knight.
I am both UBER excited and yet MAJOR nervous. First of all, for this new movie Christian Bale will not be playing Batman. And I don't care what anyone says, he is and will forever be my favorite Batman. Well depending on who does end up playing the new version and how well they do. I'm upset that my beloved Bale will not be making a comeback... I will have more rooted feelings once I know who is going to be taking over the role. There are rumors that Tyler Hoechlin is in the running to take over the role. Can I just say NO. I am not okay with that in any regard. It is too early for him to even be close to getting the part, but I will die inside, not in a good way if he does. Let's be honest, he didn't even make the cut for freaking Edward Cullen, so he sure as hell better not be my favorite superhero! On the other hand I wouldn't be opposed to this...
Also, I strongly disliked Man of Steel... And considering it's a sequel to that and not just a complete stand-alone movie, is kind of upsetting. Yes, I do realize Henry Cavill is gorgeous, but that did not cut it for me in the latest film. If you did see it, you know that the last full hour was a fight. And I mean, I appreciate a good fight sequence, but it was too long and quite frankly, boring. This sequel is going to be primarily a huge fight between the two superheros, so I really hope they add some substance to it.
So, as you can see I'm torn... I am obviously gonna be first in line to catch this movie and find out as many details as I can about it, but it's still so early in the game. The movie is set to release in Summer 2015, so we have a bit of a wait. But that doesn't mean we can't geek out over it now! It was announced at this year's, 2013 Comic-Con in San Diego. What I wouldn't have given to be there.
Oh, and if you are aware of this comic, you know who ultimately wins the battle. Which is why I am uberly excited over this. They best do it justice! And then make Justice League... I know you like what I just did there. ;)
Are you geeking out over the news?
Who do you want to see play Batman?
