Red Son Superman vs. Batman

superman-vs-batman-the-dark-knight-returnsThe Dark Knight vs. The Man of Tomorrow. The Caped Crusader vs. the Last Son of Krypton. Bruce Wayne vs. Clark Kent. However it’s framed, Warner Brothers is releasing the sequel to the financially successful in the form of Batman vs. Superman on July 17, 2015. With the recent casting of Ben Affleck as Batman, it’s difficult to not speculate how the clash of these titans will take place.

Luckily, there is ample evidence to examine how these two heroes will come to blows. Hit the jump for Batman and Superman’s greatest brawls for a look into what scenes Zack Snyder may decide to use for his much anticipated sequel.

“I want you to remember, Clark, in all the years to come, in your most private moments, I want you to remember my hand at your throat.”

superman-vs-batman - superman-red-sonConsidered by many to be the pinnacle Batman/Superman fight, The Dark Knight Returns takes place in the distant future as an elderly Bruce Wayne returns to the cape and cowl, protecting Gotham City with a much harsher brand of justice. After a final fight with the Joker, the U.S. Government sends their number one weapon after the Dark Knight: Superman. During their city-flattening fight, with Clark seconds from defeat, Bruce self-induces a non-lethal heart attack to preserve both their lives, allowing him to return to fight crime in Gotham in secrecy.

Dark Knight Returns shows Batman as the vigilante he is, fighting outside of the law, shrouded in darkness. Conversely, Superman fights in the light as a government lackey who follows orders rather than thinks independently. While this battle does not portray Clark positively, it shows his unbreakable loyalty and his willingness to do what he believes to be the right thing, including coming to blows with his best friend.

Considering The Dark Knight Returns creator Frank Miller has been brought in as a consultant for the upcoming Man of Steel sequel, expect many aspects of TDKR’s story to seep into the movie’s screenplay.

Though the Superman and Batman of Red Son are worlds different from their current manifestations, there are some constants. Superman remains a powerhouse and a force to be reckoned with, his power illustrating how truly terrifying he can actually be. As was illustrated in this summer’s , Clark is “more powerful than a locomotive” and these powers will be put to the test when matched against Batman’s strategy. In this iteration of Batman, Bruce’s ruthlessness and strategies as a tactician are his notable attributes. Though he may not be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, give Bruce time to come up with a plan and he will find a way to do so. All of these abilities will hopefully come into play in 2015’s summer blockbuster.
