Comic book geeks throughout the world let out a shout of triumph at Comic-Con yesterday as information was revealed as it pertains to a couple of anticipated sequels. It was revealed by Warner Bros. yesterday that DC Comics intends to use the next Superman film to begin establishing it's own connected, cinematic universe the way Marvel has done with Captain America, Thor, Iron Man & The Incredible Hulk, which ultimately led to the massively successful Avengers film. The announcement is that the sequel to Man of Steel is going to be a crossover between Superman and Batman. There was talk several years back of making "Superman vs. Batman" film, which could be where they're going with this one, though I suspect it all comes down to the two iconic characters eventually putting whatever philosophical differences they have aside in order to team up. I don't follow DC all that much but If I'm not mistaken, there was a regular monthly series several years back that featured that very theme. One reason I'm thinking this will be the case here has to do with the logo for the film that was debuted last night: http://www.superherohype.com/news/a...an-of-steel-sequel-announced-batman-to-appear The logo is almost identical to that used on the cover of said comic book series, which feature a large Batman "Bat" symbol with Superman's "S" across its center. Marvel Comics also officially announced that the title of the Avengers sequel will be "Avengers: Age of Ultron". The Age of Ultron title has been taken from a current Marvel Universe spanning crossover in which a future version of Ultron winds up conquering Earth in the future and does so by ultimately sending back advanced Sentinel type versions of itself, with vastly greater technology, back into modern times. In order to stop Ultron, mistakes are made that wind up causing tears in reality itself, causing various aspects of alternate worlds to merge with the mainstream Marvel continuity. If it sounds complicated, it kinda is. That's par for the course when it comes to stuff involving time travel & alternate universes. I'm sure changes will be made in the film that will cause it to be significantly different. For instance, whereas the comic crossover featured pretty much every major Marvel character, the movie will be heavily toned down in that respect as it'll only be about the Avengers characters, so it'll also probably considerably less complicated. At least, that's what I'm hoping because films that focus heavily around tampering with reality or changing the past or future and all that turn into one massively complicated clusterfuck that leaves viewers lost as to what's going on.
