One thing that always irritates me is the rant of a fan boy who isn’t happy with something. Whether they’ve changed a costume, a character’s hairstyle, I’ve constantly had to hear from one person how upset he is that Hank Pym isn’t creating Ultron in the lastest Avengers movie and honestly, does it really matter?
When the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer hit last week I was excited because we were finally getting the two iconic characters together in one movie AND they were going to fight…and for some reason that just wasn’t enough for anyone as the threads began to fly of how horrible the movie looks (it doesn’t) how terrible a Batman Ben Affleck is going to be (worse then Clooney?), I couldn’t believe how many people were pouncing on a movie that is just under a year away from being released, then nerd god himself, Joss Whedon, explained that can’t wait to watch the two DC icons duke it out.
“I found [the trailer for ‘Batman v Superman’] interesting,” Whedon told Yahoo Movies, “Because they’re bringing up a lot of issues that we bring up in ‘Age of Ultron’ and I think it’s inevitable. People with power, who are good, do not always agree and it makes perfect sense for me that [Batman and Superman] would fight,” Whedon told Yahoo Movies. ”And besides… Batman and Superman are gonna fight! I’m so excited! I’m so excited!”
It’s nice to see such a huge figure head in the Marvel world ecstatic about another comic book movie and show some enthusiasm for another film maker instead of tearing him down.
Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016.
The cancelled Batman V Superman film has been brought to life in animation form courtesy of Sean Willets in the first of a new series, BlockedBusters. So my day is pretty complete after seeing this.
