Still recovering from the end of San Diego Comic Con? Well, rest easy, friends. There are plenty of people on the Internet keeping the vibe alive. Following the release of the official trailer for Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the YouTube channel ComicsExplained created a very helpful video explaining (as they do) the history behind the various encounters between Batman and Superman in the DC comics.
For those not familiar with the comics, this video provides some insight as to why and how these two megastar superheroes meet and conflict. As stated in the video, their first encounters were actually friendly, with the two superheroes joining forces to help stop the bad guys. As the years went on, however, the need for darker stories grew, which led comic book writers to create conflicts between the two. With those comics being very successful, it’s no wonder that Warner Bros. wanted to make this new film with these two heroes pitted against each other. Because ultimately, Batman v Superman is a much more intriguing title than Batman and Superman.
