Kevin Smith Shares Thoughts About Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice


Kevin Smith, during his recent podcast, jumped on the subject of DC Cinematic Universe and commented about the upcoming film’s title:
“It’s a bit of a mouthful. And also, I don’t know why Batman V. Superman. Why not just throw the “s” in there? Or spell it or something like that. Or honestly, every comic book fan on the planet, who is a DC comic book fan, I think we all wanted to see Batman/Superman: World’s Finest.”

BVS also seems to be drifting away from ‘the direct sequel to Man Of Steel idea’ that fans were told when the film was initially announced. Smith sees this as a building block for one big Justice League movie – no kidding.
“But look, they’re obviously beginning something, and there’s a stretch of these flick. And so this is the beginning of the Justice League, as we all suspected as they were announcing that cast. We were like, ‘This is the beginning of a Justice League movie.’ From what I understand now, it’s no longer like, ‘This is Superman 2.’ They’re not doing these things. They’re doing like, ‘Here’s Man of Steel. Here’s Batman/Superman: Dawn of Justice.’ The next one is not like a sequel to one of the characters. They’re just going to keep building their universe for about five or six movies.. But all of them… it’s supposed to tell one massive story, which is all Justice League oriented.”

While none Smith’s comments can taken be as official, he was right on the money when it came to his description of the new Batsuit months before it was revealed to the general public. Obviously being pals with Ben Affleck doesn’t hurt his credibility either.
