Possible Hints about BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN from Today’s MAN OF STEEL Q&A with Zack Snyder [Updated with Video]

Earlier this afternoon, Yahoo! hosted a Q&A for the upcoming Man of Steel Blu-ray.  Kevin Smith moderated and possibly talked more than guests Zack Snyder, Henry Cavill, Michael Shannon, and Amy Adams combined.  But in between Smith’s yammering, there were some slight hints about Batman vs. Superman.  Smith made it clear that the movie still has no official title (it can be referred to in general as Man of Steel 2), but we’re going to stick with “Batman vs. Superman” for the sake of simplicity, consistency, and clarity as Snyder briefly commented on the superheroes’ relationship in the highly anticipated sequel.

Hit the jump for what Snyder had to say about Batman vs. Superman.  [Update: Warner Bros. released a clip with the highlights, now at the bottom of the article.]  The film opens July 17, 2015.  As a side note, they’re auctioning off art for charity.  The art isn’t from the movie; it’s just how the artists felt about the Batman and Superman fighting.

superman-vs-batman-the-dark-knight-returnsSnyder was very guarded about the sequel to the point where he wouldn’t even say if they were reusing Plano, Illinois for Kent Farm because his producer/wife, Deborah Snyder, “would kill him”.  However, the director reluctantly provided a few minor hints about Batman vs. Superman.

First, he said that Superman killing Zod will have ramifications in the sequel. If I had to guess (and that’s all I can really do), the ramification isn’t that Superman killed Zod, but that Superman was willing to kill at all.

Moving on, Snyder talked about his approach to Superman as the story of an alien, and said “Lex [Luthor] loves calling him an alien.”  It’s more than likely that Luthor will be in the sequel, but before everyone goes nuts, Snyder could have also been referring to Lex’s behavior in the comics.

Finally, despite being overwhelmingly vague, the most substantial (and I use that in the loosest sense of the word) aspect was Snyder talking about the “versus” part of the title.  He wouldn’t specify whether or not Bats and Supes start out as enemies and become friends or vice versa, but it’s likely the former.  Perhaps the aforementioned ramifications are Batman realizing that Superman is dangerous, trying to stop him, and then discovering this Kryptonian ain’t so bad after all.  Then they team up to stop a larger threat of some sort.  To put it another way: “vs.” as the beginning; “&” at the end.

    What was the point of doin a Q&A if they couldn’t even freaking say anything?

    • Anthony Michael

      The article says it was a “Q&A for the upcoming Man of Steel Blu-ray.” I’m guessing they were very open to answering questions about that film, and less-so for the sequel.

    • kevinvannatter

      It’s the same point of posting an article about it– to waste your time.

  • Blitz

    Matt come on man , u got to just post the news and keep these opinions to yourself. Just a thought.

    • kevinvannatter

      You didn’t enjoy reading one guy’s less than definitive interpretation of something everyone inferred about the project a long time ago?

    • Strong Enough

      you’re such an idiot. it was a good article. fuck off

    • Howie

      Why is matt goldberg speculating? Didn’t he sh!t on mayimbe the other day for doing the exact same thing he’s doing?
      Personally, just here for frosty, ignore the other donkeys round here. They’ve no relevance nor legitimacy.

  • T.E. Lawrence

    Matt,

    I’m a big fan of Collider and your movie reviews, and I know you’re stubborn as hell. So please, convince whoever who’s in charge of this website to cut down on the rabid automatic ads. They are taking over this website and it’s incredibly off-putting.

    Thanks dude, take care.

    • CKLOH

      Ad-Block takes literally three seconds to install.

      • axalon

        He wants to support the site

      • Brent Stires

        Blocking the ads from showing up doesn’t not support the site. They only get paid per click.

      • axalon

        But it registers impressions, which shows demand on the site which delivers higher paying ads

  • blakeavon

    “But in between Smith’s yammering” after a year or two of reading your ‘attempted’ reviews I would take Smith’s comic yammering (yes even one of his five hour shows) over any of your news articles, that cant just tell facts without some nasty unrelated dig.

    • scottish_punk

      Amen.

    • kevinvannatter

      AMEN.

    • kps

      It’s reached the point where you can’t have a Golberg article without him being the center of attention. Half the comments are about him instead of the actual news article.The writer should never be bigger than the story. When a large majority of your readers are continuously asking you to dial it down a notch, maybe it’s time you make an effort to do so?

      It’s been going on for ages and it’s something I’m sure the folks at Collider are aware of. I’d love to hear their side of it. A simple acknowledgement or explanation from Matt/Steve would go a long way for me. Let us know you’re listening to your readers.

      • Steven Ray Morris

        I just started reading Collider less than a year ago but it seems like everyone complains about Mr. Goldberg so much and yet he seems to opine just as much as any other person on any other film site. I don’t know why everyone seems to have a problem with him.

      • Hit By Da Realness

        It’s pretty simple: Matt gives honest reviews about terrible films like The Dark Knight Rises, The Hobbit and Star Trek into Darkness and fanboys start frothing at the mouth, most of whom haven’t even seen the film in question yet. They get so bitter about it that they lash out at Matt for every news article he posts with even a shade of editorializing, despite the fact that they constantly read the articles in question and have the power to not read them at any time or to skip over the offending sentences and glean the information they want (it’s what I do most of the time).
        However, some of us, mainly myself, find this cycle to be hilarious and so come to Collider to revel in the butthurt of the fanboys mewling and gnashing their teeth in faux-outrage when the answer to their deep, psychological torment is this: don’t read the articles or reviews.
        My recommendation for real comic gold is to read the responses Matt received for his review of The Hobbit where he aptly stated Tolkien’s not that great of a writer. He even condescended to give examples from Tolkien’s text itself to back up his assertion in the comment section. The fanboy response: “Duurrr, I enjoyed reading it so it must be accomplished literature, DUUUURRR”. They don’t seem to understand that enjoying something doesn’t necessarily mean it’s art.
        It’s good times my friend, good times.

      • scottish_punk

        How’s life, Matt?

      • Nelson: Ha Ha

        and so it begins…. lulz ;)

      • Hit By Da Realness

        Also, does anybody know if there is a Trayvon Martin impersonator that i can hire to come to my house, gather my family in the living room, drop his pants and start pissing in my open mouth while yelling “ACTION”? I’d really like that, in fact, i’m pretty sure that it’ll be the best birthday ever! I’m willing to pay $300 cash. $350 if he can make it taste like CORN. ;-) Lulz!

      • scottish_punk

        Oh, so you’re THAT guy….

      • Hit by all kinds of realness

        What guy? There’s two. One who makes legitimate comments and one who’s just my groupie.

      • scottish_punk

        Nice one, Matt.

      • Mattz Goldbeard

        Haha. Using the same joke in the same thread is comedy gold! oh wait…

      • scottish_punk

        What made you assume that I was attempting to be a comedian, or even trying to be funny?

        Silly troll.

      • blakeavon

        The tone of his Hobbit review was beyond stupid. It wasn’t criticizing the film but the idea of the film. His comment about Tolkien was ridiculous, he is a only bad writer in terms of how we read literature TODAY. Thats like reading Charles Dickens and saying he has crap sentence structure, which he does, but only in context of how we structure our sentences NOW. The problem with most reviewers these days, like forum posters in general, they want to hate everything (yes and I realising i am proving that myself), every week each Walking Dead is apparently the worse than the one before.

        but in terms of how Matt writes his reviews (and he isnt alone, see some gaming things on Destrutoid, like new 3.5/10 Batman game review there by another equally negative person) he seems to never come at a film from a place of enjoyment. Its like he dislikes something until it proves itself and its worth. Where as I am huge movie fan I enjoy any crap thing until it proves itself bad. But even when i criticize its badness, i dont forget the positives it had to that point.

        Surely someone who writes movie reviews for living should actually sound like he, you know, enjoys films in general. I dont get that from his writing at all.

      • Jack Powers

        Why do you read his reviews then?

      • blakeavon

        I dont much any more since the Hobbit one, disappointing really, given how brilliant this site is for movie and tv stuff in general

      • kps

        This isn’t about his reviews for me, that’s the one place he can go all out. It’s the simple news articles where he feels to need to constantly slip in negative/snarky comments on the subject matter he is reporting on. I came here to read Batman vs Superman news; I don’t care whether Matt likes Kevin Smith or not.

      • Grayden

        ^This^

        EVERY piece Matt writes has an injection of his personal opinion in it, regardless of whether it’s an opinion piece or not. Finding information, fact checking, and presenting it in an unbiased way to your readers, (i.e. being objective) is what journalism is about. Matt adds his subjectivity to whatever he writes, NOT just his reviews, thus discrediting the objectivity that is required. To be contrarian is one thing, but to sneak in a comment about your personal opinion in an article where it isn’t necessary, or even looked for, is tiresome. Especially having done it for so long.

        Thing is, Collider is already one of the best sites to get news about the film industry. I don’t see the necessity of driving traffic and site hits through contrarian views or controversial opinions. Just do what the rest of the contributing staff does and Collider will do just fine.

      • mbmarquis69

        I tend to agree on your point about news being objective, but do you feel the same way about other writers such as Drew McWeeny or Devin Faraci? Why are they being held to a different standard? Not claiming you personally are doing that. I’m just observing that their comments sections are not peppered with the amount of backlash I find here.

        How do you feel when Devin Faraci does it? Or do you simply not visit that site? I have no dog in this fight. Just curious.

      • CKLOH

        Tolkien was a Merton Professor, you imbecile.

        Goldberg thinks that J.R.R. Tolkien and Cormac McCarthy are poor writers. The former created multiple languages, ffs. I mean, is there anything left to do as a writer?

        The fact that you agree with Goldberg/created a pseudonym, Goldberg, to lend even a modicum of credence to that tripe is both hilarious and disconcerting.

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merton_Professors

      • Real Talk

        Cormac is a genius prose stylist who has written profound works. Tolkien was a genius world builder and a highly intelligent man but his ability to translate his world into compelling prose was lacking. The battle of Helm’s deep is glossed over in like a page, which is a major climax in the story. Nobody isn’t saying he wasn’t creative but any one who considers him a literary genius hasn’t studied literature.

      • CKLOH

        Oxford considered him to be a literary genius… Who are you to reduce literature to recipe? Regardless…

        “Nobody isn’t saying he wasn’t…”

        … you have no right to opine on matters of literary skill.

      • Brenno

        As CKLOH mentioned above, Tolkien is a literary genius. Anyone that says otherwise is tripping on some kind of mind altering substance.

        As for Goldberg critiquing Tolkien’s work… one is a hack movie reviewer for an internet movie news website, the other was a Merton Professor of English and Literature. When I’m looking for academic studies on Beowulf, I don’t look up Goldberg, I look up Tolkien. You fucking morons!
        This is exactly what is wrong with the world, when the opinion of someone, who effectively amounts to an internet shock jock, is taken over the opinion of an actual expert…yay for the media age

      • Lulz @ u

        hahaha. You’re like a 17 year old nerd judging from your picture. Of course you haven’t read classical literature. You probably consider Harry Potter a great literary achievement. Wait till your testicles drop then come to the big boy table and debate.

      • CKLOH

        Since McCarthy, Kafka, Shakespeare, Le Carré, and Tolkien are my favourite authors (and some of my favourite stories include Don Quixote & Homer’s Odyssey) I’d say you’re both wrong and quite possibly challenged.

        Do they cut your food into small squares you cannot choke on at the big boy table? Is that why you like it?

      • Hit to hard by the realness

        So you like actual literature but cite Tolkien as one of your favourite authors? He’s not in the same league as Kafka or Shakespeare or McCarthy. And you read the Odyssey? [Slow clap] Have you read the Aeneid? Probably not because they don’t teach that in grade 11 English like they do the Odyssey. LOL! If you have you would know what true epic literature is and be red-faced for even mentioning Tolkien in the same breath as Kafka and Shakespeare.

      • Brenno

        lol, Theogony, Aeneid, Illiad, they’re famous for the rare insight they give into ancient rome and/or ancient greek culture. Not to mention that they were written a few thousands years ago! How about we keep the topic a little more contemporary to Tolkien’s time.
        Give up on them CKLOH, they’re either trolling or mentally handicapped (fairly certain it’s one person using different names). Anyone that has actually studied literature at university level would know that Tolkien is justifiably well recognised as a literary academic and author. There can be no doubt as to the lasting impact he has had on the fantasy genre, or his significant contributions to the study of old english literature, in particular texts such as Beowulf.

      • CKLOH

        Thanks, Brenno.

        It’s just sad that this dunce (probably Goldberg using a pseudonym) is so disrespectful of Tolkien that he would belittle his accomplishments in an attempt to bolster his self-esteem.

      • King of Collider

        So because he’s a great literary critic he’s also a literary genius? All you dipshits can do to mount a defence of Tolkien’s writing ability is to defer to his academic, not literary, accomplishments. It’s like saying Roger Ebert is a great screenwriter because he won the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism and wrote Beyond the Valley of the Dolls. Fuck, if CKLOH is really some free lance Master Thesis editor like he claims (ha ha) then I’m extremely crestfallen about the state of modern academia.
        “DURRR Tolkien’s a great writer, DURRR. Want proof? He critiqued Beowulf better than anybody! Durrr.” I’ve seen parlour tricks before, no slight of hand is going to distract me from the fact you tards are doing everything in your power to not cite the text Tolkien wrote to prove his literary prowess. You can be the greatest literary critic or Merton Professor in the history of universe and neither accomplishment makes you a genius writer. Fuck sakes you people really can’t be this stupid can you?

      • CKLOH

        It seems as though others’ abilities render you perpetually “crestfallen”. I anticipate – with breath abated – your letting us know you’ve published something worthy of being used as tissue!

        Don’t worry, I’ll illuminate them with respect to the lament of an internet troll regarding academia’s modernity. They could use a good laugh during research.

      • Played like a fiddle

        Wait…so you’ve published a literary masterwork? Going by your criteria, unless you’ve published a masterpiece you have no right to critique anyone elses’ work. I weep for the people you swindle by editing their masters thesis (LOL!). ;)

      • King of Collider

        so you anticipate with “abated breath”? Lulz! You sure you don’t me with “bated breath”. The University of Phoenix must pay you well for all the Master Thesis editing you do.

      • CKLOH

        HaHaHaHaHaHa

        Oh my god, you really are stupid.

      • Brenno

        …….we’ve said the whole time that he is a great writer, AS WELL as an accomplished academic. I called it earlier, but mentally handicapped is hitting the mark it seems lol Btw, trolling is supposed to be when you bait someone that doesn’t realise it. Not when they know it all along and are calling your stupidity out mate.
        As for Tolkien, the bloke wrote a novel that is known the world over. I don’t care how you put it, the book is known globally as a masterpiece. World of Warcraft, Dungeons & Dragons, a whole heap of modern fantasy books, they all draw on elements of tolkiens books.
        Where is your argument to the contrary…some flippant remark that “he just sucks, because I said so”. Your qualifications being sweet fuck all. You couldn’t come close to writing anything remotely approaching the quality of his books, nor could anyone else that writes comments on this website…or reviews for that matter ;) Doesn’t matter how much you waffle on, the proof is in his universal recognition and your absolute obscurity lol

      • LOL

        What a buffoon! Haha. This shit is too easy.

      • King of Collider

        hahahahaa. The old “well you couldn’t do it so you have no right to critique it” bullshit argument. If you EVER complained about a restaurant giving you a bad meal, and you are incapable of cooking said meal, then you’re a fucking hypocrite. Or, if anybody fucks up contract work on your house like, say, putting in shitty wiring, you have NO RIGHT to complain unless you are a master electrician. Thank you for conceding defeat.

        Yes, I’ve read Virgil’s Aeneid. I read The Lord of the Rings when I was ten. I read The Metamorphosis, The Trial, Hamlet, Othello, Blood Meridian, and The Road when I was thirteen.

        I edit Masters Theses from around the world as a secondary source of income and am understandably appreciative rather than outrageously jealous of Tolkien’s resonant ability. I’m sorry that you were forced to endure a dreadful educational circus, reduced to being a faceless troll on a Collider forum. Anything else you need to be cleared up, champ?

      • King of Collider

        lulz, so how much does it hurt that all of your alleged academic accomplishments couldn’t keep you from being played like a fiddle by a troll on a website whose raison d’etre is reporting on movies’ related to children’s comic book stories? It must sting bad cause to me it’s fucking delicious.
        Yet another vanquished hater. Next challenger please.

      • CKLOH

        Normally, when one acknowledges the existence of a troll the former is aware of the latter’s pitiful agenda.

        I’ll indulge trolling if it means exposing the acridly pompous Dunce of Collider who has to create a multiplicity of supportive accounts to fill an obvious void of loneliness he experiences in reality.

        If you need anything edited, let me know, champ!

      • King of Collider

        Yeah, give me your address. Only you won’t because you’re not nearly as beast as me judging from your picture. You’re scared I’d whip dat piddly ass! LOLOLOL! Scared coward.

        This is laughable. So if you have a professorship you’re automatically a literary genius? By your logical every Ivy League University is teeming with literary geniuses. If that were true we’d have dozens of literary genius producing dozens of literary masterworks each semester. What a clown.

      • CKLOH

        There is a difference between a professorship and a Merton Professorship, you illiterate stooge.

        Have also gives movie summaries that he calls “reviews” and feels the need to write articles explaining things that don’t need explaining, such as his recent article on the credits scene in Thor 2. Its very apparent that if you don’t understand the scene, you’ll know what it means when the next marvel film comes out.

      • bfg666

        Conversely, NOT enjoying something doesn’t necessarily mean it’s NOT art. The fact is that Bilbo the Hobbit is only a short child’s book filled with naivety and excessive syrupy marshmallow sentimentality BUT The Lord of the Rings is by far the best book I’ve ever read, so much that I re-read it at least a whole dozen times throughout my 40 years of existence. Who’s to say Matt’s opinion is worthier than mine?

      • mbmarquis69

        Has it occurred to anyone that when it comes to these kinds of web sites, opinion is encouraged in news posts? I don’t recall it being any different at Badass Digest, Hitfix, or AICN. Besides, a strongly stated opinion tends to get people talking and posting comments and that is always a good thing for a web site.

        I’m not advocating it, just making an observation.

    • sense11

      I dont always agree with Matt but seriously fuck Kevin Smith and his overrated self

    This movie was doomed when they announced Ben A. as Batman…

  • TurnerTC

    Most likely, the ramifications of the Superman/Zod fight is it scared the holy hell out of the general population. Metropolis’s introduction to Superman was him practically leveling the city. Batman sees how two aliens almost destroyed not only the city but the planet and decides to take out the remaining one – Superman.

  • junierizzle

    I have absolutely no faith in this movie. Man of Steel sucked big time. I am optimistic. There is nowhere to go but up.

    • Howie

      Well don’t, reasons being: The transformer designers are designing the batmobile and stuff, so think morphing armor amongst other bs. And the director of the third(worst) underworld movie, also designer of the (cardboard-looking)houses in the total recall reboot, is creating gotham -the batcave! Talk about toxic. Then you got an old-weary batman being a creeper with a younger love interest, and nightwing being a dick having an estranged relationship w/ ol’ bats. Cause that’s something everyone loves when batman & robin aren’t working well together.
      Don’t even talk about goyer. Don’t even bring up the problems with amyadams, and now they’ve got these four actresses who can’t even string together a paragraph w/o needing subtitles to understand a word they’re saying.

      My take on Snyder is he’s meticulous, and w/ the cornball of goyer; i’m thinking the football game they filmed is a summation of the goings on within the film. So, they filmed gotham making a goal w/ everyone cheering; and the second setup’s metropolis making a goal, people cheer, but then gotham throws blows w/ the whole bench charging the field. Allegory being bat’s saves the day, and then supes saves the day; but bats ain’t havin that, and the fight is on. Not relative or definitive just something to think on.

        You’re kidding with the Amy Adams thing, right? She was by far the only good thing in the movie. By far. Man of Steel sucked big time and the only times it felt real was when Adams entered the scene.

      • Howie

        She’s a CW actress. When Adams entered the scene(s) you can see it in her eyes, her thinking, “don’t look at the camera, don’t look at the camera. now turn and pear out, now look down, nod”, or, “look tough, be stern. I’m so serious right now. he said his line now I say my line.” “ah, I’m startled, now say my line.” “hold my mark, now move towards camera, saying my line.” There’s even one part in zod’s ship where she’s wearing the mask and Jor-el removes the shield, adams’ so over acting they cut it, like, “whoa too much, let’s cut that short,” it’s hilarious.
        No, the best thing of the film unfortunately(read about connelly) is Russel Crowe & a fat-Fishburne. Amy Adams is not Lois Lane.

        Totally agree with you about Amy Adams. She has zero charisma on screen in already dull movie. Not to mention her average looks,deadpan delivery of dialogue and red hair! She couldn’t have the decency to dye her hair black!? Lois lane she is not..

    Ben Fuckflick as Batman is pure Hollywood schmaltz all the way.And God help us if they cast that bitch Beiber as Robin. Can you imagine that shit. And it is possible.
    I have concluded that Hollywood is counting on them pussies called the millennials to
    support this crap.

    The ramifications of Zod’s death will be a total systematic government/private sector effort to study and clone his genes in order to create an army of supermen. Lex Luthor will surely be behind this plot and a young government scientist working for the program will have an unexpected encounter with a lightning bolt while working with the synthesized genes… hmmmm

    Let’s get totally real here! There is absolutely NO WAY Batman would EVER stand not even a 2 second chance up against Superman. Batman is a mere mortal with no superhuman abilities whatsoever. Just a bunch of cool little trinkets to use on Superman. Which would just shatter if used on Superman anyway. Superman would hit him once and crush Batman PERIOD! The ONLY way batman would have the slightest bit of a chance would be if he totally cheated and got his hands on some kryptonite and THEN and ONLY THEN would he stand the slightest chance against the great Man of Steel.

      Uh, yeah, that’s how it happened in the comics.

    • Andy

      YOU DON’T DESERVE THE NAME “BRUCE”!!! (Haha) Seriously, though, you’re apparently unaware that Batman has several times bested Supe in the comics–by using kryptonite.

  • bfg666

    “the ramification isn’t that Superman killed Zod, but that Superman was willing to kill at all.”

    Have you even watched Man of Steel? It’s pretty damn clear that Superman was NOT willing to kill. He only did it in last resort because Zod gave him no other choice, and he was visibly extremely distraught afterwards.

    Ben Affleck as Batman? What the hell america is up to, Obamacare glitch?

    Well here the news flash Snyder you have already destroyed the project by casting Ben Affleck in the part of Batman. I want to make a public suggestion to all going to comic con please stand up against the panel and show your total discuss over Snyder’s choice. They will try to say wait to you see it…the same thing they said with Daredevil…Affleck is the wrong look, build, ability and presence to pull it off. What ever they tell ya Chris Nolan walked off the project who lets face was the brain Syder couldn’t have pulled the first movie without him. So all those attending openly or in a group show your total disagreement with Warner brother and mostly Ben affleck if the man has any dignity he will bail.

    ben doesnt even look like a tired and weary middle aged guy who has been in fights his whole life. this is what is needed to be the bat in this movie and ben just plain doesn’t have it.having ben play batman is as useless as rubber lips on a woodpecker, doesn’t matter what you do to the costume, make up, etc. you cant fix stupid, and having ben affleck play batman is about as stupid as you can get

    It was hinted in the movie I AM LEGEND “Easter egg” batman/super man movie.

    “…and then discovering this Kryptonian ain’t so bad after all.”

    I want to say that the Batman would NEVER come to such a conclusion, especially after it’s revealed that this godlike alien is fully capable of taking a life, but the way everybody else at the end of the film seems pretty much OK with it means that Snyder’s Batman will also probably wind up letting it slide
