Comic book movies and hopeless speculation go together like Pb & J; like World of Warcraft and low personal hygiene; like Christian Bale and upsetting camera crews.

The point is; it wouldn’t be a true comic book season without us here at WhatCulture towers approaching a comic book movie not like a visual experience there to be enjoyed; but a challenge of how good we are at predicting the future.

This could come back to hit me in the face; Batman could not appear in Man of Steel at all, however if Warner Bros and DC want to build a money making universe on a par with Marvel’s Avengers then they have to start interlinking their films. Furthermore this cannot be conceived as a harder task than Marvel’s as DC have the two biggest superhero characters in the world in Batman and Superman; a combined screen presence which could overawe the Marvel Universe. »
