Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)
Warning! Contains spoilers!

Don’t get me wrong, I went into Batman V Superman blindly with low expectations and I think it was super. I thought “Man of Steel” was satisfactory, but it wasn’t anything that was epic or memorable, other than the fact it was the biggest and most interesting interpretation of the Superman lore to date. Given time, even these darker more realistic phases will pass, and descendants of comic book movie fans will see it as a sign of the times. But that doesn’t mean it’s not a thrilling piece of entertainment for now. (more…)
From here on out, I will be referring to “Batman Vs Superman” as “Superman Vs Batman”, which I’m confident is the official title. Before, it was just important that “Batman” was mentioned in the title, and obviously that’s going to draw in a huge market. But there is a logic to having Superman billed first in the title because it is his franchise after all. And Affleck is going to get his own Batman franchise anyway.
I have it within good authority that the official timetable release date of the new “Batman vs Superman” costume designs will be released in May. If you’ve applied to be an extra through RealTalent Casting in Michigan, then you’ve probably received email updates from them looking for people to film from May 2014 to Dec 2014. And there’s only one major film project in Michigan right now and it’s the Batman vs Superman film.
So there you have it. Ben Affleck is filming his Bruce Wayne shots in Michigan as we speak. But the actual costumed fight scenes can be filmed last minute (or let’s get real, be all computer generated) so they can design the costumes for maximum “epicness”. I highly doubt there is a “final” suit like Zack Snyder has been throwing out there. It would have just been the same Christian Bale suit but with a yellow bat ensignia. Hollywood is cheap like that, no creativity. Kevin Smith and Zack Snyder are in the business of selling bullshit after all.
So I’m sure the official new designs for all three characters Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman will be in May 2014. Guaranteed.
