The Batman/Superman Affleck/Cavill movie is still two years away, but when it hits, summer 2015 will be something to behold. The film is said to be “inspired” at least in part by The Dark Knight Returns, a comic in which Superman and Batman do end up going head to head at some point.
I’m not sure if they’ll end up calling this movie “Superman vs. Batman,” but that would unfortunately probably be the reductive title that would sell the most tickets. The relationship is much, much more complicated than the two of them simply slugging it out, and I have a hunch the movie will probably skip over much of the character development that made TDKR great.
Anyway, this IS rather amazing theoretical poster art for the upcoming film by Matt Ferguson, which I’m sure will be better than the giant floating heads or interlocking logos of the actual poster once it arrives.
