DC All Access is taking “Versus” to a whole new level as we pit two of DC’s most iconic characters against each other and try to determine who would win in a fight…live! For this debut segment, we’re tackling the biggest, most enduring match-up of them all: Superman vs. Batman! DC writer and host Sam Humphries welcomes writer Jon Rivera (CAVE CARSON HAS AN INTERSTELLAR EYE) and Nerdist’s Dan Casey as they debate which of the two star superheroes would come out on top. Would Superman’s strength and strong array of powers send Batman limping back to his cave?
For those of you unfamiliar, the Earth One graphic novels are special out-of-continuity stories that reimagine some of the DC Universe's most familiar heroes in a totally unfamiliar light, whether it's stripping Green Lantern of his willpower or imagining Bruce Wayne getting kidnapped for ransom rather than orphaned in an alleyway.
You've probably heard the news by now. Legendary director Steven Spielberg—a name that probably made you say "whoa!"—has his eyes set on the DC Universe with a brand new live action movie all about Blackhawk—a name that may have made you say "...wait, who?"
Yeah, we figured that would be the case for many of you. But don’t worry! We’re here to bring you up to speed on what you need to know about Blackhawk and why the guy has a squadron of pilots named after him.
“It’s never as bad as it seems. You’re much stronger than you think you are. Trust me.”
Superman has always been my favorite character in fiction. When I was growing up I wanted to be him, and I thought that one day maybe I could be. People would always say the idea was ridiculous, “What?!? Superman?!? The all-powerful alien demi-god? Not a chance! How about Batman? If you worked really hard you could be Batman! He’s a human!”
With the possible exception of people who have been living on the moon these past 80 years (emphasis on possible), you’ve seen Superman before, whether it’s in a movie, a TV show like Lois and Clark or Smallville or on a t-shirt or poster. He’s part of our worldwide pop culture landscape.
