He goes from almost directing MoS to starring opposite of the MoS in the sequel. Nice.

People who are mad need to remember how bad Fantastic Four was and how incredible Chris Evans is as Captain America. Also The Town and Argo. Maybe even some levity and humor to Batman which the franchise could use as a refresher after Nolan lost passion after Ledger.

Someone throw a Flash costume full of weed at Matthew McConaughey.

It's pretty morbid that people so badly hunger to see Batman beat Superman. A really weird indulgence/narcissistic impulse is at work here. It is usually formulated as a "grimdark human angst beats real ultimate power" thing, but the desire is way darker than that. Superman is someone we should aspire to be more like, not beat or lower to our level. When he's written best, he is good. By that I'm not referring to when he is like a role model in a cheap PSA but rather when he shows that although it is difficult if not ultimately impossible to be good we must still strive for it regardless of the personal cost. He's the strongest there is, but all his might doesn't do him any favors when it's time to do what's right.

But we don't want to be told that. We have this narcissistic desire to bring down this man who is good incarnate, this avatar for everything we used to wish we could be. We want to see him dragged through the mud. We want to be able to say "oh, looks like Mr. Perfect isn't so great after all!" We are at least unconsciously aware of our own inadequacies and rather than going through the mental work of fixing them, we try to bring Literally Jesus down with us. Our own moral shortfall surely could not have come from us, so it must have come from Him--after all, it is only by contrast to Him that our failings are exposed to the omnipotent gaze of our own superego.

But the source material in this is Dark Knight Returns, in which they were both quasi fascists. And Snyder seems to want to make a movie about how awesome Batman is at beating Superman. Yawn. I get that we want our postmodern paranoiac fantasies to beat this guy, but the "regular" human could only do it because he can buy victory. "Batman trumps every" isn't a fantasy of humanity triumphing over all adversity. It's a fantasy of money solving everything. Batman can be read as the story of a billionaire who puts on a costume and lurks the streets at night to beat up the poor. So it's guy who inherited his wealth vs. poor country boy who learned to be a good person even though he had the capacity and justification for steamrolling humankind.

Miller both glorified and exposed a lot of the insanity and single-minded violence core to Batman as a character, but we weren't supposed to do what we did, and what we did was identify with it. We love the Nolan movies because they focus on all of the dark and none of the knight, which is to say that we identify with Batman insofar as motive/drive and rationalization (i.e. not actually a good reason) for sociopathic behavior but we don't have to really come to terms with the implications because it all works out in the end.
