We’ve known for some time that the upcoming Wonder Woman movie would take place in two time periods: modern day and World War I. But, what if that modern day time period, wasn’t exactly modern day. As it turns out, the Wonder Woman movie will actually serve as a prequel to Batman vs. Superman, taking place before the events of that movie.

Watch a ‘Batman vs. Superman’ Trailer, Old-Timey Style

by Charles Bramesco October 19, 2015 @ 12:18 PM
The video title clocks the date of imaginary-release at 1949, but janky capes-and-tights pictures in the style emulated above filled cineplexes through the ‘50s, thrilling audiences with their tales of derring-do. If you’re so inclined, feel free to interpret the rudimentary writing on display in the video, sampled from the crude superhero films of the era, as a comment on Zack Snyder’s capabilities as a stylist of dialogue. If not, simply sit back and enjoy the skill with which bits and pieces of old-timey Batman and Superman flicks have been stitched together to create something new.

The Batman movies have always been on the darker and grittier side, Bat-nipples not withstanding. A few minor edits and any of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight films could have gone from a PG-13 to an R-rating. The Joker did slam a guy’s head down onto the point of a pencil, after all. But, while they’ve previously only flirted with a level of intensity only seen in R-rated films, Warner Bros. has reportedly given approval for an upcoming Batman movie to actually be rated R.

Whatever your feelings on FOX’s Gotham, few would argue that Robin Taylor’s Penguin proved an early highlight of the show, accented by screen legend Carol Kane as his eccentric mother. Now, the Penguin family lineage grows even odder, as Pee-wee Herman himself, Paul Reubens signs on to play Penguin’s father (again) in Gotham Season 2.

FOX's 'Gotham' Season 2' tries to narrow its focus with a "Rise of the Villains," but proves just as mean-spirited and messy as before. Our early spoiler-free review, before the Bat-prequel returns for another round in Monday's premiere!

Fandom among TV superheroes has ups and downs across both Marvel and DC; the former sharing continuity, but never screentime with its cinematic brethren, while DC’s lot keep explicitly separate from the Batman v. Superman world, and its Justice League.

So, you can’t blame Matt Damon for getting into the fun when asked if his Jason Bourne, who he calls “my superhero”, could take his pal Ben Affleck’s Batman. As you might expect, Damon’s not stepping down from the challenge.
