Batman & Superman: Justice [Fanedit]

Batman and Superman Justice

 

 

DC’s Rebirth was a near perfect example of what happens when a comic company, in this case DC, actually benefits from reconstruction rather than deconstruction. A lesson Marvel Comics have even learned lately, hence the spirited resurgence in their own comics.

Naturally, Rebrith didn’t last, the reconstruction didn’t last, and thus we’re left with more  dispiriting titles where pain, isolation, detatchment and lonliless appears to eat away at the heart of every hero. If all titles are the same, what little point is there investing in variety?

In this, the second of my two Batman v Superman edits (the other, Superman: Dawn of Justice, can be found here), I intend to honour Rebirth by going back into the movie and taking out any attempt at a fight between god and man. Here, Bruce is wary of Clark, but is willing to give him a chance, he is not easily fooled by Lex’s manipulations, not even when you think he’s about to. Thanks to a handy online voice distorter, I worked out a way for Bruce to become aware of Lex’s plan without having to drag Clark and Bruce into a fight.

Clark also doesn’t decree that Bruce might have to die. He’s Superman, he’s not going to consider the worst case scenario, he’s going to use his common sense and appeal to Bruce’s humanitarian side despite how he might personally feel about him.

No Doomsday, no fight, no arrest for Lex (because everyone who could connect to him is dead, all we have is justice dealt with by the world’s finest acting in tandem. Hopeful, and heroic.

As for what the other sequel hook is, well, I hate to be of those edits that leaves out the Knightmare sequence like every other edit does, so it’s used here as motivation for him to go all “Tower of Babel”

Running Time: 1 hr 44 mins

There’s been a lot of discussion over what the best course of action to take with this particular film. My idea, in addition to trying to get through it as quickly as possible, was to try and make it more about Clark and his journey, while finding time to give some breathing room for Bruce only when the plot requires him to be there to advance the duel.  Ideally, I wouldn’t have it in there at all, but it makes for a pretty short movie, if you can still call it a “movie”, it was almost “DeAssified” in length actually.
So far, my current draft clocks in at 1 hour, 49 minutes.
Here’s the cut-list so far
-Film opens with Clark speaking to his father in the Arctic
-Kryptonite discovery moved to after the hearings and before Lex’s introduction
-“Devils come from the sky” monolouge cut
-Media montage of Superman’s deeds cut
-Both of Bruce’s nightmares have been cut
-Outside of giving Bruce back the flash drive, Diana does not appear for the rest of the movie. Hers is just a guest role
-“Granny’s Peach tea” sequence cut
-“Marrthhhaaa” lines cut. Bruce now relents as he flashes back to his parents.
-Martha rescue cut entirely
-Superman’s death cut. Doomsday is defeated when nuked. Man of Steel footage is used to show Clark being replenished by the sun.
-Diana viewing the Metahumans repurposed to Bruce viewing the Metahumans in addition to Diana’s photograph
-Clark speaks to his mother and rescues flooded villagers at the end.

Spent the last day or so editing the Ultimate Edition of Batman v Superman in the hopes of reining in some of it, try to make it more Clark’s movie for at least the first half an hour, before focusing on Bruce. Also I’ve minimised Diana’s role in events considerably.

Here are just a few samples of what to expect when I’m done
