Man of Steel vs Batman Comic Con reveal

I hadn't watched this until today, but if you're going to reveal to the world that Batman is going to be the, uh, villain? in the next Man of Steel movie, you couldn't do a better job than how Zach Snyder and Harry Lennix announced it at Comic Con 2013.

If you haven't read the Dark Knight Returns graphic novel (not to be confused with the Dark Knight Rises movie, which isn't related at all), you seriously need to get up, go down to Merlyn's, find a copy and READ IT. It's not only considered one of the greatest graphic novels ever, it's an even tossup between it and the Watchmen as *the* greatest. The art is great, the story is great, and the EPIC dual between Batman and Superchump is EPIC.

"I want you to remember, Clark…

in all the years to come…

in your most private moments…

I want you to remember…

my hand…

at your throat…

I want…

you to remember…

 

the one man who beat you."

The movie won't be the Dark Knight Returns, but if they can capture some of the essence of that classic, the next Man of Steel movie will be awesome. I loved the first one, so I'm really excited to see how they manage to do justice to the two duking it out.

In a side note, apparently Wonder Woman will be in the movie too, because Justice League.

EDIT:

Snap. I also forgot to mention that it's in the Dark Knight Returns that you get to see the conclusion to the lifelong feud between Batman v. Joker.

"No, Joker. You're playing the wrong game. The old game. Tonight you're taking no hostages. Tonight I'm taking no prisoners."
