A trio of villains rumoured for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Batman v Superman: Dawn of JusticeEarlier today we got our first look at Henry Cavill suited up as the Man of Steel in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but preceding that a new rumour emerged via Latino-Review, who claim to have uncovered a trio of secondary villains set to join Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor in the DC ensemble.

According to the site, Ben Affleck’s Batman will tussle with the deranged serial killer Victor Zsasz early on in the film in Gotham, while Morgan Edge will feature as a PR exec at LexCorp and the assassin David Cain will be hired by Luthor’s bodyguard Mercy (rumored to be played by Tao Okamoto) to set up a hit. The report goes on to suggest that previous rumours about Metallo and The Joker are inaccurate, as well as suggesting that Amanda Waller will also feature in the cast. As always, don’t take this as gospel until we hear something official, especially with rumours of a fake script doing the rounds…

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set for release on May 6th 2016, with Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent) and Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) alongside Ben Affleck (Argo) as Batman, Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jesse Eisenberg (Now You See Me) as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons (The Borgias) as Alfred Pennyworth and Holly Hunter (The Piano), Callan Mulvey (300: Rise of an Empire), Tao Okamoto (The Wolverine) and Scoot McNairy (Argo) in as-yet-unrevealed roles.

    man of steel was so joyless and awful…

    • Chris Smith

      Then keep watching the light and fluffy Marvel movies. I myself found lots to enjoy in Man of Steel. I though, watched the movie. Unlike countless other Superman haters. He was the first, he is the best.

      • Carl Davis-Bey II

        No he’s the first and the dumbest. he’s the prime example of uncretivity in DC. The fact that he’s even relevant baffles me. he’s a shit super hero. Just because he was the first doesnt make him the best it makes him first.

        • Chris Smith

          Name me one hero, I mean real hero, in all of Marvel? I can’t think of one. Just because at times, and there have been many times, Superman has bad writers/writing doesn’t mean he is not important, good or relevant. Superman is hard to write. Try it. I bet you could come up with a Batman or Wolverine story without much problem. Write a good Superman story? That is not quite so easy. That is because he is a more complex and more conflicted character than any other in the Super Hero genre. It is not enough to have him smash robots or catch helicopters. Answer me this, why does Superman do what he does? And not to fight for truth, justice and the American way. That is just a handy tag line, a catch phrase. Superman is more relevant now than he has ever been. Take a look at the world around you, when our own governments are the least trust worthy body on the planet. When all is said and done, when the years have flown and the dust settled. When all of the more gritty “heroes” are left by the wayside, still standing, tall and proud and humble, will be SUPERMAN.

          • TigerMask

            Captain America?

          • Chris Smith

            OK! Point taken. But he is the closest thing to Superman that there is in comics. Well there is Shazam and Tom Strong.
            I love Superman, always have. I just hate when he gets unwarranted criticism. I assume the majority on these pages are Comic book fans? I am a comic book fan and welcome any entry of this genre into the movie world and support as many as I can. I am DC, through and through, but own all of the Marvel movies to date. Here in the UK I am still ridiculed and patronised for being a comic book fan (I am 55) but I do not care. I love this form of entertainment and will defend it till the day I die. And I will die before Superman does. Respect to all my fellow comic book and movie fans. Peace.

          • TigerMask

            I can totally appreciate where you are coming from. We all have our favorites. It never made much sense to me that people would be over critical of a movie just because they prefer DC or Marvel over the other. I’m a Marvel guy, but love Man of Steel, Batman and even Green Lantern films. You keep reading those comic books, as long as we can afford them, and screw what anybody says.

            Don’t ask me why but my favorite DC guy is Aquaman. Ha!

            i’m a fan of superman, and was very, very excited about the man of steel. the trailer gave me shivers from looking so damned good. but then i saw the film. it is not a good film. sorry.

          • Mitchell1660

            Man of Steel was a GREAT film.

          • Bruce

            Man of Steel was truly a horrible Superman movie…

          • cd

            Nothing wrong with Aquaman.

            you are awesome Chris

          • Shawn Patrick

            Nothin wrong with that! I was a bit harsh towards you in my previous posts, but admire your passion for the characters you love. Peace

          • Alexander Winston

            It isn’t unwarranted. Man of Steel was awful. He wasn’t even a hero. Earth would have never had problems with the bad guys if Superman wasn’t there. And isn’t he “faster than a speeding bullet”? Have you ever SEEN a speeding bullet? No right? Then he could have saved his father and no one would have seen him. Instead SUPERMAN watched his father die. And Routh was a better Superman, Cavill is milquetoast. The studio knows all this, it is why they added Superman and Wonder woman to the mix. Cavill can’t carry it on his own. And that outfit looked like something on a fetish website. I could go on and on and on….

          • Max X

            All you dipshits know how to do is criticize. Not once do you ever come up with any ideas on how to make it better. Very typical of you unimaginative cry babies. Just bash bash bash and then walk away.

            And if he shouldn’t come to earth then just where exactly do you expect him to go???? Your logic makes absolutely no sense what so ever.

          • Snow

            Because the humans would never have needed his help if Jor-El didn’t send him to Earth. The whole movie he tells him how he will save the earthlings, and it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy because Zod would never have attacked Earth if Superman wasn’t there.

          • Mitchell1660

            Oh my God, Jor-El sends his son to Earth to SAVE HIS LIFE! He had no idea that Zod was going to find him, let alone attack the Earth…

          • l24kers

            Don’t bother with these idiots. LOL

          • Mitchell1660

            Please don’t go on and on. Clark Kent didn’t save his father because he wasn’t “faster than a speeding bullet” then; he was just learning how to use his powers. And, although I liked “Superman Returns” and Brandon Routh, in retrospect Routh was doing a fairly good imitation of Christopher Reeve. He even looked like him! But the movie was almost a remake of the first Superman movie. Routh didn’t have a “Superman” body, unlike Henry Cavill; he had a swimmer’s body. Routh’s costume wasn’t nearly as great as Cavills'; the “S” was too small, the cape was too plastic. I could go on and on and on… but I think you got the point.

          • feenix219

            I kind of liked that about Reeves/Routh. He wasn’t chiseled. He was scrawny Clark Kent. But he has *super powers*.

          • feenix219

            I thought I was the only person that thought an action filled sequel with Routh could have been great. Returns was a bit lackluster but succeeded in resetting all the pieces and returning Superman, without resorting to the whole origin story again, and at least it was the *real* Superman, with the *real* anthem, not the wannabe in MOS. Honestly, I turned it off when Pa died. That wasn’t Superman. Can you explain your comment that the bad guys wouldn’t have been a problem without fake Superman?

          • L24kers

            Your rant became invalid when you said Routh was a better superman.

          • jem0013

            How dumb is that comment. “Earth would have never had problems with the bad guys if Superman wasn’t there.” Earth wouldn’t have had similar problems if the Avengers weren’t there either. And yes I have seen footage of a speeding bullet.

          • dan c

            My biggest issue with Superman is that he’s so overpowered. When you have a guy that can’t be hurt, can fly at any speed, even beyond the speed of light, has been known to travel forwards and backwards in time by SPINNING, has super hearing, super smelling, eye beam capabilities, breath weapon, well, as a writer, he gets boring.

            Lets face it, IF I was superman, I’d never lose a battle b/c I would use my super speed to incapacitate any foe I came up against. I laugh when people say that Batman and lesser beings like him could take him. It just isn’t feasible. Even with his Kryptonite weakness, Superman could be up in the sky miles high and just freeze everyone to death if he wanted to. So, they have to make up these crazy ways that he loses.

            Take Marvel and their heroes and they are just better made. I read a comic book where Firelord came to earth and the only hero at the time was Spiderman. I chuckled when I first saw that. On a scale of 1-100, Spiderman is a 40is, whereas Firelord is in the 80’s. However, the story was cleverly written and believable in how Spiderman won. You wouldn’t have that with Superman. He’s simply too powerful. And that gets boring real fast.

          • CaneDewey

            The Flash is faster then Superman, but Superman could crush him in so many ways.. I always liked the way Batman dealt with him.. The Bat always had Kryptonite on him at all times in his belt rendering him vulnerable.. Got to love Batman.. his cunning and detective skills are off the charts..

          • Firelord

            I’ve never heard anyone reference that Firelord story but it was always one of my most beloved issues, for precisely that reason: Spidey knows he’s totally outclassed, spends the whole day trying ways to stop firelord for long enough that Spidey can get the Avengers or the Fantastic Four — big league heroes — to come handle this cosmic-level bad guy. When he can’t find any of them, he eventually has to take responsibility for stopping Firelord himself, and goes on to try one plan after another after another. Fear, self-depreciation, desperation, a turn, determination, stubborn inventiveness — so many great character moments along that story. And great action — a streetwise hero using his urban geography and city smarts to trap/outwit a galactic adversary.
            If the roles were reversed — if Firelord was the protagonist — then none of that drama would be there. We would never fear for his life or even feel like he’s in danger. Spider-Man’s attacks (so thrilling and hopeful from Spidey’s POV) would just be a nuisance for Firelord, delaying him from his goals and posing a minor inconvenience that graduates into a real headache, until inevitably he uses his incomprehensibly vast power advantage to defeat Spider-Man and go on with his day.
            It would basically be like a Superman story.

          • Mitchell1660

            Your points are valid, and a lot of comic book writers have said those were the problems with writing for Superman; he’s so powerful, it was hard to write a lot of conflict. But… not impossible and it has been done.

          • feenix219

            the Spinning effect for time travel was a visual cue to the audience to show what happened, but it was more like super speed breaching the time barrier approaching the speed of light, or something like that, along the lines of a slingshot around the sun in Star Trek.

            Martian Manhunter has even more powers then superman… all of his, plus telepathy, shape shifting and invisibility.

            Personally, characters like that are hard to write for, but so compelling when done right. Example: Season One Peter Petrelli on Heroes, before they forgot how to write the character.

          • Cale Hensley

            how the hell is captain america like superman? superman’s a douche.

          • Big D

            Cap is great. But not on the same level as Supes.

          • Ash Simp

            What I don’t get about your comment is saying Superman is a better character but he’s harder to write stories for. I get you feel he’s been let down by writers but maybe he’s difficult to write for because his basic characteristics aren’t very interesting. I like the orphan on a different planet angle, I like the last of his kind angle, but I don’t get why we should be supporting this guy who is better than ourselves in every way, someone so far superior none of us have a chance to achieve what he achieves. And it’s great that he wants to protect us no matter what the cost is, but it leaves us feeling inadequate that we have to rely on some perfect being from a different world to save humanity. So sometimes the writers try and show us the weaknesses of Superman, which I admire, but then what’s the point in him being Superman? I’ve just never got it the appeal of this guy, I prefer people that work for it.

          • Chris Smith

            You, yourself, mentioned some of the basic elements to Superman. And you agree they are interesting. The character is Clark Kent. Not Kal El. He knows where he came from, intellectually, he knows he is an alien ( him being alien is what is known as a literal metaphor ), he understands he is not the same as, most, everyone. One thing he does know, he is absolutely sure of, is he is Clark Kent, adoptive son of a farming couple, and Superman is who he chooses to be. Why? Read the early Action Comics and see where Grant Morrison got his new take on Superman. Read the Greatest Superman Stories Ever Told, For the Man Who Has Everything, Superman For All Seasons, Superman Birthright, All Star Superman, What’s So Funny About Truth, Justice And The American Way? Or Kingdom Come to name a few of the stories that get to the depth of who this marvellous character is. You can’t just dismiss 76 years so easily. If you do? Well tat is just wilful ignorance. I will say no more on this subject. You can all continue with your dark, gritty but, ultimately, meaningless character worship. End.

          • Ash Simp

            Thanks for the recommendations. Maybe after reading these I’ll have a different opinion.

          • Chris Smith

            I trust that you are being sincere. Peace, fellow comic book fan.

          • Ashbury137

            I’m so glad you mentioned Kingdom Come. That story alone made me a big fan of Superman. Before that I hadn’t really cared too much about him either. If Mark Waid’s writing isn’t enough to grab someone, Alex Ross’ art should be.

          • Big D

            You make a lot of good points bro. Nice to see another Supes fan that knows their shit ;)

          • Dan C

            My problem with Superman is how he’s created and his power levels. On a scale of 100, he’s like 110. He’s so overpowered. In my earlier post, I wrote about his physical abilities are enhanced a zillion fold. That isn’t exciting.

            Oh, and then he killed in the movie. He could have rendered him unconscious. Or blinded him. There were ways.

            I remember a TV episode where the justice league were fighting Darkseid. And Superman is talking and saying something to the effect of “I live in a world where everything around me is cardboard. I have to be so careful not to break them. But, you, big guy, you can take it.” And I wish they spent more time on that part, the cardboard.

            As a writer, if you can’t make him interesting in one way, you find another way. But they don’t. They have him fight darkseid and doomsday. And that is boring in the fact that for as powerful as each is, they don’t do any real damage to each other until billions of dollars of damage are done to the world around them.

            Superman is never scared of being hurt, much less being killed. That makes him some one that no one can relate to. Even Thor has been humbled. And the Hulk is flawed. He knows he can’t control his rage. Superman is too perfect and no one can relate to that. Add in that he’s too overpowered without any drawbacks and you have a superhero that is bland.

            Lets face it, the writers until the 80’s had no real understanding of super powers or how they worked. Today, you have plenty of writers who understand how they would work in the real world.

            Just one case in point, Flash. He can run almost at the speed of light, right? Why is it that when he hits a bug it doesn’t blow him to pieces? Does he create a forcefield like say Cannonball from Marvel? Does he have super durable skin like Superman? I don’t think I’ve ever read an explanation how he can run at those speeds and not get torn to shreds even from dust particles. It’s that kind of oversight that gets boring.

          • Firelord

            You touched on a key problem with his invulnerability.

            Despite all the technical wizardry and bombastic choreography of the fight scenes in Man Of Steel, I remained somewhat detached. There was no reason to follow it closely and keep up with who was dominating at any given time. It didn’t matter. Because you know that whether Zod lands the next punch, or Superman lands the next punch, neither of them will get hurt. Because they’re both invulnerable. The fight could have lasted one minute or thirty minutes; neither of them would be any worse for the wear afterwards.

            No wonder people’s attention drifted and they started wondering about the people inside the buildings.

          • feenix219

            There are tons of Flash stories that deal with that, and yes, its pretty much a force field; His speed is channeling energy from another dimension, basically. They call it the Speed Force.

            The cardboard thing made me think of a Brave and the Bold episode where Batman gets superpowers from an element in the atmosphere on an alien world, and doesn’t realize it…. and makes a joke about their poor building code standards. :D

          • Jade Sharp

            I’m a Batman fan and I believe that, besides the Joker, Superman is Batman’s greatest nemesis. Other than that, I find him kind of boring unless he’s in a talented writer’s hands.

          • Big D

            ANY character is boring in a shit writers hands…. DUHHHH….. lol

          • L24kers

            LOL i love how youre putting these haters in this whole thread.. keep it going!

          • Big D

            LOL, simply being powerful does not mean Supes does not have to work for anything. That’s ridiculous. He sacrifices ALL. Pain, suffering, being killed by Doomsday, all for MAN KIND. And the whole point is that he is a beacon of hope for us to aspire to. We don’t ACTUALLY have to reach his level. That is impossible. So instead, we try to achieve the greatest status we can, in an effort to be the best person WE can be, not because we should try and be Supes. Some of you guys just don’t get it. Its cool but I just don’t see why it is so difficult to understand the character. Not trying to be a dick but shit, its not that hard to get.

          • Big D

            Sorry if I came off like a prick….. Just that seeing the same ol’ I cant identify with Supes etc shit gets old to me. I like Bats AND Supes and both DC AND Marvel. I just enjoy seeing the books and my childhood heroes coming to life. Peace.

          • Big asshole D

            I liked man of steel. You’re still an angry nerd on the Internet who clearly doesn’t understand what an opinion is.

            And being an asshole doesn’t make you right, it makes you an asshole, asshole.

          • Dan C

            It wasn’t until the 90’s that he died. My issue is that he doesn’t feel pain. He’s never killed a lover because he had sex with her. He never felt anything. He isn’t like Rogue from the Xmen who can’t ever touch someone.

            He’s a god with no drawbacks. That’s boring. He is simply so overpowered that no one can relate to that. I don’t blame Cadmus for being terrified of him. Add in that he has no answer for mind control or magic and that’s just too easy.

            I still believe that if the Krptonians knew they could be gods here, more would have come here. I mean, if you know you could be a god on a different planet, wouldn’t you go? So, lots of “eh” stuff is tied to Superman.

            Here is the truth, superman could maul 99% of his opponents and beat them into submission just by using his super speed and strength. He can move his hands at the speed of light. As a writer, that’s boring. When you have to come up with oddball ways to win and lose, to me, as a fan, it’s a loss.

            If you ever get the chance, read an issue of Spiderman where he fights Firelord, who is way out of his power class. That ending made sense.

            Superman is too overpowered in almost ever way, with no drawback, with no real threats to make him feel any real lasting pain, and he doesn’t live with regret or any other negative human emotion.

          • L24kers

            Real lasting pain always come in the form of losing a loved one. Lois lane is usually the case. Being emotionally hurt can take a toll even more than the physical.

          • Mitchell1660

            You just described every single religion in the world, especially Christianity. Christians support a God that is perceived by them to be better and superior than them in every possible way. Do they feel inadequate? I guess so, since Christians sometimes refer to themselves a lowly sinners…

            That’s the f’n point!! Marvel heroes aren’t supposed to be ‘heroes’ per se. They are people like everyone around us, having the same defects as people do.
            Look at Tony Stark. He’s been alcoholic, depressed and what not. Spiderman has to decide on a daily basis, if he still wants to be a hero. They face the same difficulties as other people in the world, but still decide to do good for the world.
            That’s a HERO.
            And yeah, Man of Steel was a boring piece of shit with no heart in it.

          • Isaac

            I’ll bet you are just ignoring superman and just refuse to read any of his comics because you decided a long time ago you’d go with your angle on Superman that he sucks in your mind. Ignorance is bliss isn’t it?

          • Someguy

            More complex?? Really?? In my opinion, there is very little complexity to Supes compared to Batman and Wolverine like you just mentioned. There is far more depth involved in those two characters. Not saying that it’s hard to write for Superman, I agree with that, but I totally disagree with what you said about him being the more complex character. He’s not more complex imo, just has far fewer stories that can be told for multiple reasons (Less relatable, very few recognizable villains, overpowered, therefore suspense is harder to create, less way fights can go down due to his superpowers, etc…)

          • L24kers

            LOL HALF BAKED :

          • Shawn Patrick

            Look, I love Superman, but you’re actually making the other guy’s case for him. The fact that Superman is hard to write for does not make him better, it makes him a poorly conceived character to begin with. He’s too powerful and required a MacGuffin in the form of kryptonite just to have some real danger to himself in the stories.

          • Big D

            You were obviously watching a totally dif movie than the MOS movie I saw. Fuck me, people are stupid. They did NOT make Superman gritty. They took the character and put him in a DARK circumstance. But the character was not dark. He was just trying to figure shit out. Just because the world is at war (aliens vs earth) does not mean that the character is dark. And every imbecile that shit talks the movie seems to forget that this is an ORIGIN story. He just BARLEY became Superman. Give him a fucking break. and let him develop/blossom. What casualties did Supes cause in MOS? Damage, yes but I did not see ONE person get killed due to their fight. Yes, you may assume if you like but I gues we wont know until Bats V Supes will we? And LMAO…. you say Superman caused casualties?? Uh, earth, to imbecile…..ZOD was the villain that forced superman to PROTECT earth. Would you rather a portion of a city get destroyed or the whole fucking world? Do you not get that?? Let me say it again. Zod was going to destroy all human life and the earth as we know it. I can do a play by play if your tiny brain cannot compute. But the bottom line is that Clark JUST BECAME SUPES. He is still learning. It is a Origin story. Christian Bale did not start out as a bad ass in his Bats movies. Bruce Wayne had to train and become a bad ass with bad ass abilities. Supes is JUST starting in MOS. Just learning. Give him and the movie a break you pompous asshole. Shit I love tearing you dip shits apart. LMFAO….

          • jem0013

            Jeez! All you guys are talking absolute rot! When did the Hulk give a crap about destroying everything around him? Plus Clark didn’t LET his Pa die, Pa Kent wanted him to learn that he shouldn’t and can’t always use his powers to to save everything he loves. Sometimes you have to let nature take it’s course and that in a way, due to ethics, neutralised his powers.

          • Derp

            You make no sense. Writers are responsible for giving characters their complexity. If the writer does a bad job, the character lacks complexity. You simply can’t have character development in absence of good writing. That said, I enjoyed Man of Steel well enough. Batman was the first comic that interested me, but mostly because of Cat Woman. I generally enjoy movies based on Marvel characters as done by Marvel more (not so much the films by other studios) because their characters feel more substantial and less like arch types. Man of Steel did the best job of bringing those qualities to Superman (with the possible exception of Smallville.) It was just a little dry and humorless for my taste, but definitely undeserving of the degree of criticism it received.

          • Justin Kangas

            Fanboy crap is pathetic. And as far as super man specifically he is the definition of unimaginative. He is immune to everything but a rock found on a far away planet. If you are gonna be an annoying fanboy at least pick a more interesting hero. The newest movie was very entertaining though IMO. I thought it was well done.

          • Big D

            You sound like an idiot troll when you just bash the character for no reason at all accept to say he is an unimaginative hero. Well who the fuck made you cap of deciding this? Since when did being a powerful bad ass stop being cool?? Oh shit, yeah, since Nolans Bats trilogy started….. HaHa….. fucking people……

            He’s right Bid D. Superman is unimaginative. He is overpowered. Does he feel love? Does he feel lust? I read that he’s never been with a woman (up to the 2000’s when I stopped reading comics). He’s a cardboard character.

            You take Marvel’s big guns. Thor has been humbled as a human and suffered other humbling experiences. Hulk knows he can’t control himself. He also fears Banner b/c he’s weak. He wants to be good, but, he loses himself far too often.

            Superman has none of this. He can’t be hurt, or killed. Why do you think Doomsday was created? Just to show that he can be killed. Then we find out that he can’t really stay dead b/c the Superman force will draw itself back to him. So, yay, he’s immortal now.

            There is no fear. No regret. Just the desire to do good, which he got from his parents on Earth. His powers make no sense. Here’s why. There is only so much room for the energy in his cells to hold the yellow sun. And when does he lose that energy exactly? There are so many questions about how his powers work that no one has ever attempted to answer them, ever, because there is no answer.

            As a writer, I find superman to be dull. IF I was superman, I’d never lose a fight b/c I’d do the same thing over and over. Why change it up? The readers are the only reason why. I’d use super speed and strength to subdue most, if a foe had something that could hurt me, I’d freeze them with my breath or take them down with my eye powers. Anything else would be foolish from a common sense perspective. And yes, common sense has a place in comics.

            At least with Marvel’s characters, you understand why they do and don’t do certain things.

          • Max X

            You’re over-analyzing it way too much. Also,you need to learn how to properly use the word(s), overpowered.

            “he is overpowered” – means that whoever he is fighting has gotten the upper hand and has gotten control of him. What you should’ve said was, he has unlimited powers. Now THAT makes sense.

          • drerasmusdoorjammer

            who made you the cap of deciding anything…Superman is boring and I have read comics from the age of 6 ….till 61……..when I was a kid …Sup was cool , he was indestructable except for the various forms of Krytonite…….then I met Silver Surfer …there was a character with depth, honor, and bravery ……there will be no other in my mind……besides DC didn’t get better untill they brought more depth into their stories ….Besides the death of Superman was the worse idea they ever had and it hurt…Marvel is the king of all comics …..DC has a long way to go…a long way to go …..Marvel gives you even some humour ..while DC takes itself all too serious….to ask “Why so Serious”?

          • Justin Kangas

            Actually I have felt that way for 20 plus years. It isn’t simply that he is powerful. Most super heroes are. He is literally UNKILLABLE by anything but a stone on a faraway planet. That is the definition of unimaginable. Spiderman, batman, hell even wolverine have more imagination because there is more counterplay. They have obvious upsides but a slew of crafty ways to take them down. Not just, how do I trick you into being near this stone. Didn’t say you cannot like him. Which you obviously do to a point where you get unreasonable angry about people who don’t.

          • Reiji01

            Actually, I kind of agree with you that Superman is a character that is hard to write. But is not exactly because he is a complex man, all the opposite, he is a regular man with great values that loves his family that happens to have Super powers. Why is he difficult to write? because they made him too powerful, I mean, appart from kriptonite he is invincible. That’s why Batman has more fans than Supes (I like both, but of course, more Love to Bats) because Batman is a man that could die anytime on his vigilante escapades, either from a fall, a bullet, etc… and that’s freaking exciting, that’s what makes him interesting and badass. Superman is a brave man too, but he’s not really in danger, because he is Superman, invincible. And in the long run, that makes him boring, because what is a superhero withouth a little (or a lot like bats) risk in his/her life.

          • Big D

            Supes is NOT invincible. He gets his ass kicked back and forth all the time by the likes of Doomsday, Darkseid, Brainiac and even Lex at times. Those are just a few. But don’t buy into that Supes cant be beaten bullshit man.

          • Dan c

            Not true. Don’t confuse getting tossed around with getting beat up. Superman has tough skin which can absorb a lot of damage, and he has a healing/regenerative factor, so, whatever damage he’s feeling gets fixed very quickly. Lets play with numbers.

            Lets say that Darkseid hits superman for 4000 points of damage, he crashes into a building for another 3000 from the impact from the blow. Superman’s skin blocks 5000 per strike. So, he’s taken 2000. His regenerative abilities are substantial so, in the end that blow might only have a lasting effect of say 200 until the next blow. If Superman has 1 million points of life, he’s not in any real danger.

            He might get his ass kicked from a comic book point of view and getting thrown into buildings and what not, but, they don’t do any real lasting damage. It’s no different then a human getting hit. Some would be knocked out, but, a guy used to fighting would bounce back quicker.

            So, yes, he’s invulnerable. Only the strongest of the strongest can even dent him, if they can dent him. Yes, doomsday killed him. But, he didn’t really. The power left Superman’s body, but, then came back. So, what did Doomsday really accomplish? Nothing. Tell me, if Superman kills Doomsday, do you think the power would leave his body and come back? I don’t see that happening. He’d stay dead till he was brought back.

            Superman is so overpowered in any universe. It’s unchecked. And it makes no sense. If he absorbs power from the yellow sun, then why doesn’t he overload and explode? Full is full.

          • http://mschellman.blogspot.com mschellman

            No. It’s not becasue he’s more complex. It’s because he’s too simple. Too good, and too powerful. All good stories require suspense and conflict – Superman makes many posible scenarios impossible out of the gate. Because they just wouldn’t work with him. Flawed super heroes (like those of Marvel) share our same weaknesses, they are just more powerful than we are. Superman is supposed to be better than us – so he is very challenging to write a good story for. DC primarily buys into the whole “Heroes come from more noble stock than we do” myth. Billionaires (Bruce Wayne), Nobility (Wonder Woman, Aquaman). They inspire us to look for heroes. Most of Marvel’s Heroes (Tony Stark excepted) are like you and I. They inspire us to BE heroes.

        • Isaac

          Carl Davis-Bey II, if you had actually read Superman comics, you would see that Dc had to get really creative with him to make him endure so long. You see, back in the day, Readers really were starting to get turned off from the character as he was literally invincible, so there really was no challenge to or threat for him to make an interesting story because they always knew he would win and there was never any real danger. The writers had to take him down a notch and give him weaknesses and other handicaps to give back that sense of danger, thus they literally had to create awesome story lines involving more threats to him to make him interesting again, which they did in spades. If the Superman comic is so dumb, why has he endured as long as he has? because he was first doesn’t make him the best, I don’t know who you are quoting with that statement. He is the best because he is the best. Nothing to do with him being the grand father of superhero comics.

          • Derp

            “Best” is subjective. Different people are going to prefer different characters. Also, who knows what will be popular a hundred years from now, or even just 10 or 20. Non-comic book readers were only familiar with a few superheros for the longest time. It wasn’t until recently that others became known to the mainstream. The Iron Man movie almost wasn’t green lit. Now he’s one of the most famous, and a favorite of many. New comic book superheroes could be introduced and become even more popular now that comic book reading in general is more mainstream.

          • CC

            The worst part about MOS is that he has so much trouble adapting to Earth and the enhancements he gets from the yellow sun throughout his adolescence. They explain that he gets stronger as he adjusts to it over the course of his life on Earth. Then ZOD comes and has like 5 minutes of trouble then all of a sudden he is as powerful as Superman. It makes no sense. They completely undermined their explanation of his abilities. If Superman has had more time around the yellow sun, he should have been able to crush ZOD…but for some reason it’s ridiculously hard.
            That movie was terribly thought out and developed. I like Superman, but that movie was ass.

        • Tresix

          What is “uncretivity”? For that matter, what is “cretivity”? I think that “Man of Steel”, along with the Nolan Batman movies, could have used a little bit of humor in them. The solemnity in them threatens to crush them. Zsasz is one of my favorite villains, but I hate what they did with him in “Batman Begins” and now in the comic books. At first, he looked like an ordinary man. The type you wouldn’t suspect of being a serial killer. “Batman Begins” made him look like a biker, someone of whom you WOULD be suspicious. I think the three villains should be Luthor, Joker (can we PLEASE stop swinging from Heath Ledger’s jock now?), and Cheetah.

        Super man was made by A Canadian(Wich is cool) but he was made almost like the guy had ADD I mean come on He can breathe in space,dodge bullets,bullet proof,shoot lasers from his eyes, super strength, etc. Yet some one pulls out a green Crystal or hides behind lead and he’s fucked? WTF kind of BS is that. Wolverine could kick Supermans ass blind folded.

        • Hero

          Lead and kryptonite are challenges that Superman can eventually overcome. I honestly don’t understand why the concept of Superman being suseptible to a certain kind of radiation is so hard for people like you to grasp. You act like it’s silly to be “afraid of a rock” as people like you tend to say. I don’t see what’s so funny about deadly radiation. If you don’t think it’s any big thing, would you go strolling through Chernobyl on a sunny day or maybe pay a visit to Nagasaki after the atomic bombings? Remember, it’s not just that he has a silly fear of a rock, he has fear of dying a painful death from radiation exposure, but that doesn’t mean Superman becomes 100% useless and loses just because that little green rock makes an appearance.

          • Big D

            Good to someone here that is NOT an imbecile when it comes to Supes knowledge.

      • Shawn Patrick

        I love Superman, but unfortunately Man of Steel was made by a bunch of people who don’t. What you call light and fluffy, most people call fun, entertaining, and true to the comic books. Man of Steel tried really hard to do serious and real-world like the Batman films, but failed on every level as a movie. It was utter shit and that has nothing to do with being a Superman hater. I think you have to be clueless about Superman to actually like it, or you’re the world’s biggest DC-fanboy, D-bag who viewed it with rose-colored glasses and an erection as soon as you saw the WB logo. Clearly, you’re weirdly angry that Marvel can take C-level characters and do better than DC can with an icon like Superman, but no reason to get mad at them for it. It’s not their fault, it’s WB and DC.

        • Big D

          Nah, MOS was very well done. It just went way over some peoples heads. Seems you are one of these people, lmao….

        Your right about Superman being the first and the best.
        But Man of Steel didn’t have anything to do with superman.

        • Big D

          I think it did a little. I could almost swear MOS was about Superman?

          • Twisted Gear

            You’d think so, but for the hero who symbolises Hope for humanity the character spent a lot more time crushing hope than inspiring it. Let’s the fact that Superman is one of the few heros in the DC universe who actually trys PREVENT colateral damage, and the MOS Character allowed his Fight with Zod to completely destroy metropolis despite the masive amounts of alternatives. Oh and he killed Someone, something that Supermans only done in realities where he turned evil, or realities where the person writing him has no idea how Superman works. Clearly this is the latter.

          • Baynality

            Didn’t he kill Zod and two other phantom zone criminals in a DC Universe reboot? In the late 80’s ‘Superman’.
            He ventures into a pocket universe, encounters them, kills them with gold kryptonite, comes back and then sinks into depression for a good 2 years and creates a Hispanic gang fighting split personality called Gangbuster to help him cope.
            And then the real Gangbuster hears about him, recognizes him and straightens him up.

          • Twisted Gear

            I’m not familiar with the story, but the comics are alot longer running so it allows for more complex character development arc. I’m unsure if thats what was done because I don’t follow superman that closley. But reguardless of how the comics did it, “Man of Steel” made all the wrong choices, it made the Kents complete morons, used jesus symbolism despite no one making a selfless sacrifice (heck we actually had Selfish sacrafice with pa Kent.) and tried to darken up a superhero that has no buisness being dark.

          • drerasmusdoorjam

            Well..no. Gold kryptonite strips kryptonians of their powers forever, and negates their healing factor from the yellow sun.
            Sooo, dropping them into an ice crevice produces the same results as throwing a normal human into an ice crevice. Death.

        Also, notice how everyone hated the idea of Heath Ledger as the Joker before the movie, but to this day he has won an academy award for his performance, and is still praised by fans everywhere.

        • chuckles9932

          I think that Ledger was awesome, but and here is the big “but” thanks to that movie and his death(not meant to be disrespectful) we will not see another batman movie with the joker in it for at least 10 to 15 years, until there is a director and actor that are willing to put their careers on the line thanks to that brilliant performance by Ledger because that is the performance that everyone will judge from, the same goes for Bale and Affleck. I know alot of people hope that Affleck fails but I like him, I think that Daredevil was a fluke and subject to a shitty script not Afflecks fault and he has matured as an actor and a person, watch Hollywoodland, superb acting.

      If it makes you feel better, Affleck got his first roles through Kevin Smith. While Smith isn’t the most serious writer, he does in fact write Batman comics for a living. Kevin things he’ll do great as Batman. I’d trust him.

      Some of it maybe, but Superman should be more sympathetic than he was in TDKR.

Moving on to the 3 other casting choices you listed as horrible…you have no idea until you watch it. Some of the best roles have been by people who were considered miscast (case in point, Heath Ledger as the Joker – one of the greatest portrayals of all time)

    I think the inherent problem in coming up with interesting scenarios for Superman is just that–he’s Superman! You can only go the krypton route so many times, otherwise he’s apparently invincible. Best super hero of all time: The Sub-Mariner. Hey look, when I was a kid reading Marvel comics during their golden age, even we kids knew “Iron Man” was not exactly a “top priority” in their lineup. He always had the lesser writers and artists helming the comic (no special offense meant to Don Heck, as I don’t think he often got paired with one of their better inkers either) and now he’s a hot ticket item at the movies. So yeah, Sub-Mariner, most definitely (another second tier comic, but they should try a movie with him, what the Don heck!).

    Who will they get to play Yosemite Sam?

    They can never do joker again..they pretty much retired the character forever when heath ledger died. He nailed the role so well no one will ever top his performance.

      Nicholson did better …Ledger did the worse thing an actor can do ….he let the character take over his life and it killed him…..how do I know this have been working as a hollywood actor for over 30 years ….

        I can see that from all the dramatic pauses in your writing ( “….” )

    • Jamie Huff

      Not buying it. Yes Ledger did a great job but who’s to say there is not another actor out there who can do an even better job. The character of Joker evolved over the years in the comics so anything is possible.

  • Anthony Ayala

    Am I the only one who clicked on this article because they saw the dude from “The Piano” dressed as the Joker for an article titled “A trio of villains rumoured for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and thought WTF???
    And what did that pic have to do with the article?

  • Gajonka

    Joker caN Only be delayed for So Long! ahahahaha hahaha ha ha!!!

  • Joe Schmo

    Adrien Brody is one of the few actors I could actually see pulling off a new Joker. He has the right look for it, and he is infamous for his immense preparation for movies, even some of the crappy ones he has been in lately.

    If they do decide to put in Amanda Waller… I hope they stay with Angela Basset, I think she did a great job as Waller.

  • Guest

    man of steel was awesome

  • Thomas Rakewell

    Why stop there? Why not have at least TEN villains and TWENTY heroes and a massive fight that lasts for A WHOLE HOUR where everyone punches everyone else but no one gets hurt! And make some of it SLOW MOTION!! MORE is BETTER!!

    This will be the best movie EVER.

    GO SNYDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Sean

    Jason Momoa as Aquaman ….. that ….. that actually sounds really good. Hope went up reading that one.

    Jeremy Irons as Alfred…… errm, maybe?

    The only problem I had with Man of Steel was the final battle was just too long. They could have cut that in half, and then you would have had a great Superman movie.

  • Tdot

    Captain Marvel tho! that nig knows whats up! SHAZAM!

  • PHatCAt_82

    I would like to see Adrien Brody portray the Joker.

  • Ian Morrison

    We need Jim Parsons as the Riddler!

    Great Conversation here. I am happy about every comic that make it to the movies.
    People who are talking bad about a comic universe like DC vs Marvel is in my point of view not a real comic book fan. For me as a fan there can never be enough stuff.
    As a kid I prefered Marvel because Spiderman was my untouched No 1. Nowadays I really love the DC Universe and I think that the stories are made for grown ups. The Marvel Universe have too many heroes and villains who are replaceable. Beside that too many Heroes/Villians of Marvel change their mental attitude too often.
    On the other hand are some of the DC Heroes too overpowered. Superman for example could win every fight without fighting if he wanted too. He could detect his enemy miles away and shoot with his eyes like a sniper. Game over. It wouldn´t matter if Batman wears some Kryptonite in his belt. Thankfully as a good guy Superman never would do something like that and so the battles are exciting.

    I think that Man of Steel was a really good one and it makes me sad that there are too many cameos in Superman vs Batman. I hope that the focus is still at Superman at least.

    looks like they got mad how well captain America winter soldier alone did lol
    Batman, Superman, Cyborg, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, They better have flash if they doing all those and have him to the round the world super punch that would be awesome…
    they should know how well the dark knight did mostly because of an awesome joker who is def a top villain and lots of people’s favorite villain.. they better put joker in this movie otherwise they might fail badly!!!! the new superman movies they come out with are horrible, I cant stay awake for either of them, hopefully this movie will be better, I really cant wait to see ben Affleck as batman
