Batman & Superman

Comic Con 2013 : Panel Warner/DC : Batman & Superman, Justice League, The Flash...


Alors que Marvel avance doucement mais surement ses gros pions de sa face 2, la Warner et DC savaient qu'ils va falloir frapper un grand coup pour déstabiliser la grosse machine Avengers en 2015.

Et plus que de frapper un gros coup, le studio a littéralement casser la baraque en capitalisant sur le fier succès de leur excellent reboot Man of Steel de juin dernier, en annonçant qu'à l'été 2015, ce n'est pas sur un simple Man of Steel 2 sur lequel il va falloir compter, mais bel et bien sur un Batman & Superman (qui pourrait cependant bien s'appeler Man of Steel 2), ou les deux plus populaires membres de la Ligue des Justiciers vont se tirer la bourre pour notre plus grand plaisir.

Toujours derrière la caméra, Snyder a invité l’acteur Harry Lennix (interprète du Général Swanwick dans Man of Steel) sur scène et celui-ci a lu un court passage de The Dark Knight Returns de Frank Miller – dans lequel Batman faisait face à Superman : « Je veux que tu te souviennes de ma main sur ta gorge. Je veux que tu te souviennes de celui qui t’a battu ».

Si le scénario, actuellement en plein écriture sur la plume de Snyder et David S.Goyer, ne s'inspirera pas intégralement du comic book culte signé par Miller, force est d'admettre que l'aventure salement l'eau à la bouche, joli prémices d'une Justice League annoncé pour 2017, un an tout pile après l'aventure solo du Flash, prévue pour 2016. 

Plus qu'à trouver un Batman/Bruce Wayne maintenant donc ...
Par ailleurs, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane - et vraissemblablement Russel Crowe -, seront de retour dans ce nouvel opus.
