Superman Vs. Batman: 10 Reasons It Isn't A Good Idea Yet

Superman_vs_Batman_38672 Comic-Con has come and gone but with it came one of the most enticing bombshells to ever come out of the convention. A movie decidedly titled either Superman Vs Batman or Batman Vs Superman came to light and is scheduled for 2015. On the surface it admittedly sounds freaking awesome and a project to eagerly await. I am certain that Zack Snyder and David S. Goyer will deliver an entertaining action spectacle but after weighing pros and cons in my mind I have come to a realization that at this point in time... there are not many pros. It is never enjoyable being the only skeptical and cynical person around but if you bear with me I think you will find my reasons insightful and eye opening. I will see the movie regardless and most likely enjoy it but there is quite a lot of off putting aspects to the project even without heading into production yet. On with the list but first a fair warning: SPOILERS are present for both Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy and Snyder's Man of Steel.

10: Undercooked Characters

amy-dams Man of Steel served as an insightful introduction to Superman but do you remember how it ended? Clark Kent just received a job writing for The Daily Planet alongside equally iconic love interest Lois Lane. I do not believe Snyder€™s superhero universe will follow through with a cheesy subplot where Lois is oblivious to the fact that Clark is actually the man of steel but some broad relationship expansion between the two characters couldn€™t hurt. Don€™t also forget an already crowded supporting cast including Diane Lane, Russell Crowe, and Laurence Fishburne. You just know the inclusion of Batman will steal time away from expanding on Snyder€™s other characters. Snyder€™s characters still need developing before clashing universes. Seriously, name one interesting scene in Man of Steel with Laurence Fishburne. These are areas a sequel should be sharpening.
