As a huge Superman fan, I'm torn on this. In one way I really think it would serve them better to give Superman one more stand alone movie. Let them flesh out that world a bit more before adding new characters. And I can't help but feel a little slighted that Superman is only getting one stand alone movie. I know they could give him another down the road but whatever. And WB has been throwing Batman into everything. He just finished his own movie trilogy and now only a few years after that they are putting him into a Superman movie. I don't know, I just feel its a little too quick.
On the other hand, its freaking Superman and Batman together in a movie for the first time ever. The two biggest Superheroes ever. This is what everyone has wanted for so long and I can't help but get pumped to see both of them together.
There are still so many questions. Will this be truly a Man of Steel sequel where the story focuses on him where Batman is introduced and plays a big side role? Or will this be a movie equally about both of them? I prefer the former but we'll probably get the latter. Either way, they CANNOT do a Batman origin in this one. I doubt they will but they just can't do that. No need.
The rumored title is Batman vs Superman or vice versa. I don't like that title. Obviously the whole movie isn't going to be them fighting each other but I don't know, I just don't like it. It implies they are going to be enemies the entire movie. I prefer Man of Steel 2 or World's Finest but I understand WB will probably want to have both Superman and Batman in the title for marketing reasons.
Lex Luthor will most likely play the main baddie. Could be possible Bruce Wayne and Lex Luthor use their vast wealth to come together to rebuild Metropolis after Man of Steel. Lex will probably be on a huge anti Superman campaign while Bruce will be looking into Superman to see if he can be truly trusted. Probably won't like him at first. They'll duke it out with Superman barely coming out on top, and they'll come to realize at some point that Lex is a madman and come together to save the day.
