There were several highlights at this year’s Comic Con in San Diego. For instance, “The Big Bang Theory’s” Johnny Galecki disguised himself as a, “Star Wars: Return of the Jedi” character and asked a question in front of, “The Big Bang Theory” panel on a main stage area. Once he removed his mask, the crowd erupted in cheers. Galecki then joined the panel on-stage.
However, there was one announcement that flew above the rest. With regard to superheroes, this paring absolutely takes the cake.
For those of us who have been following the subsequent moves of the super hit, “Man of Steel” and for those of us who love, “The Dark Knight” trilogy, Saturday morning was the day we had been waiting for…
We’ve all heard the news, but now it’s time to watch it:
What does this all mean exactly? While director Zack Snyder has said the sequel will not be an adaptation of, “The Dark Knight Returns” comic from which the quote was taken, it does offer an initial clue about the story. A few of the initial and prominent questions will nonetheless include the following:
Will we get the lighthearted jokes between Clark Kent and Lois Lane? How about some playful flirting between Superman (“that’s what they’re calling him”) and Lois Lane? Will we see more Superman rescues a la Christopher Reeve in 1978’s, “Superman?” Who will play the new Bruce Wayne/Batman? What will his personal story entail? What characters will surround Bruce Wayne/Batman? Will Superman and Batman have a common enemy/enemies? How will Metropolis and Gotham City merge?
We’ll all just have to wait and see. Unfortunately, the first teaser trailer won’t be released until well into the future. For now…
Have a Super Week!
