Two Bits from San Diego Comic-Con

Like every year, cool story after cool story is revealed at San Diego Comic Con. This post isn’t going to summarize all of them.

got time for that

But what I will do is post two bits that I found exciting and interesting. First, Zack Snyder announced a Batman/Superman movie. Not only did he flash an image of a Superman logo over a stylized Batman logo, but he also incorporated this quote with the announcement:

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.

That’s a quote from Frank Miller’s Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. I’m obviously excited about a Batman/Superman movie, but I can’t imagine that it would be a movie version of that comic. If DC wants to do Justice League, this storyline would throw off the time line, and it would create some very awkward team dynamics. I think the movie might be real, but I think the quote might be a distraction. We’ll see.

The second thing that caught my eye was the trailer for season 4 of AMC’s The Walking Dead:

I like the jump forward in time, and I like that the group has managed to train the townspeople to some degree. Of course, this being The Walking Dead, things are not looking good for the prison. I have ideas about who might be behind it (based on the comics), but then again, the tv show has never hesitated to deviate from the comics. At nothing else, at least it looks like there are a lot of zombies, which is always a good thing.

  1. Just FYI, Harry Lennix who read the Miller quote immediately followed with, “we’re not adapting that story.” I think it’s just meant to indicate that the two wont necessarily be friends for the whole movie. WB tried to launch a Batman vs Superman movie for years, getting pretty close at one point with Wolfgang Peterson at the helm.

    • Ah, good to know. Thanks for that. I don’t mind them having an uneasy friendship (in fact, I would be suspicious of anything else), but out and out fighting in their first movie together (particularly along the Miller lines) would be a bad way to go.
