Okay, so. Warner Bros. released the official title and logo for the new Superman sequel yesterday, and to be honest, I am horribly disappointed.
First off, lets start off with how incredibly fan-made this image is. Its something I could have done, and I’m not that great. The Bat logo is also super ugly.
Secondly, this is a Superman sequel featuring Batman. Not a Batman movie featuring Superman. The movie should be titled Superman v Batman, not the other way around… And speaking of the title…
Why is it Batman versus Superman and not Batman and Superman? These two are friends, not enemies.
And now for the subtitle. Its pretty meh for me, but I was one of the ones hoping for “World’s Finest”. It actually makes sense, since Wonder Woman and Cyborg (and possibly more) are in the movie, and is possibly the beginning of the Justice League.
Anyways, I rate this image/logo/title/ a 4 out of 10. Its just not good.

"Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon’s story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker?
Gotham is an origin story of the great DC Comics super villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”), Gotham follows one cop’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time.
Growing up in Gotham City’s surrounding suburbs, James Gordon (Ben McKenzie, “Southland,” “The O.C.”) romanticized the city as a glamorous and exciting metropolis where his late father once served as a successful district attorney. Now, two weeks into his new job as a Gotham City detective and engaged to his beloved fiancée, Barbara Kean (Erin Richards, “Open Grave,” “Breaking In”), Gordon is living his dream – even as he hopes to restore the city back to the pure version he remembers it was as a kid.
Brave, honest and ready to prove himself, the newly-minted detective is partnered with the brash, but shrewd police legend Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue, “Sons of Anarchy,” “Terriers,” “Vikings,” “Copper”), as the two stumble upon the city’s highest-profile case ever: the murder of local billionaires Thomas and Martha Wayne. At the scene of the crime, Gordon meets the sole survivor: the Waynes’ hauntingly intense 12-year-old son, Bruce (David Mazouz, “Touch”), toward whom the young detective feels an inexplicable kinship. Moved by the boy’s profound loss, Gordon vows to catch the killer.
As he navigates the often-underhanded politics of Gotham’s criminal justice system, Gordon will confront imposing gang boss Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith, “The Matrix” films, “HawthoRNe,” “Collateral”), and many of the characters who will become some of fiction’s most renowned, enduring villains, including a teenaged Selina Kyle/the future Catwoman (acting newcomer Camren Bicondova) and Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor, “The Walking Dead,” “Another Earth”).
Although the crime drama will follow Gordon’s turbulent and singular rise through the Gotham City police department, led by Police Captain Sarah Essen (Zabryna Guevara, “Burn Notice”), it also will focus on the unlikely friendship Gordon forms with the young heir to the Wayne fortune, who is being raised by his unflappable butler, Alfred (Sean Pertwee, “Camelot,” “Elementary”). It is a friendship that will last them all of their lives, playing a crucial role in helping the young boy eventually become the crusader he’s destined to be.
Gotham is based upon characters published by DC Comics and is produced by Warner Bros. Television. Executive producer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist”) wrote the pilot, which will be directed and executive-produced by Emmy Award nominee Danny Cannon (the “CSI” series, “Nikita”).
Gotham Cast Young Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle!
From E! News:
Gotham has finally found its Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle, aka the future Batman and Catwoman, E! News has confirmed.
Touch actor David Mazouzwill take on the role of a preteen Bruce Wayne (ahem, not Batman) in Fox’s highly anticipated Commissioner Gordon origin series, while acting newcomer Camren Bicondova has been cast as the teenage Selina Kyle. Their casting completes Gotham’s series regular roles.
The two young actors join a cast that includes Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue and Jada Pinkett Smith, among others.
Gotham’s Bruce Wayne isn’t a playboy-by-day, vigilante-by-night, but a preteen who has been sentenced to a solitary life after his parents’ tragic murders. The serious and soulful Bruce will rely on the guidance and protection of the loyal Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee) and James Gordon (McKenzie).
Kyle, meanwhile, is a teen orphan who is suspicious and wholly unpredictable. A skilled pickpocket and street thief, Selina is pretty dangerous when cornered. Some viewers may recognize Bicondova from her stint on MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew as a member of the dance group 8 Flavahz, who came in second place in the seventh season.

I would like to apologize for basically abandoning this blog.
Im sad to say that DC Comics is losing me. I still love it and all the characters to death, but the comics just arent good anymore and Barnes and Nobles (Only bookstore that carries comics) skip issues and drop titles all the time, so I don’t even get to finish a story half the time. Plus, Mattel canceled their DC Comics 6 inch line, so there is nothing left to collect on the action figure side, so that takes a lot of life out of it as well.
To be honest, the only thing still keeping me are the media side of DC Comics. Movies, TV, Video Games.
I will be posting less than I normally have in the past, but I will still be posting, so don’t give up on me! My posts will probably be a little different, as I will more than likely be covering DC Entertainment more than anything else, with the occasional comic post here and there.
Thank you all so much for following me and staying with me this long, it makes my heart so happy; you all really are so great :) Peace!
