If a discussion about the upcoming Batman v. Superman battle has turned into who is better, then you may have some solid evidence if you’re a Batman fan. No matter what anyone has to say, if the studio putting out the movie decides that Batman is more popular, then all Superman arguments are now invalid.
If you believe what Heroic Hollywood is reporting, then the reason for the halt of any future Man of Steel movies is because they want to put all their time and effort towards Batman movies. If you look at all that has come from Batman, then you’ll see that the dollar signs are bigger in a bat symbol. Batman movies have consistantly come out, where as Superman movies have been quite sporatic and when they do some out they get nothing but negative comments. Granted Batman movies also don’t get all the high marks, but they still make Batman movies, because it sells. The Arkham games have helped Batman stay in people’s mouths and it wasn’t until Arkham Knight that any mention of Superman happened.
Batman even has a part in the Suicide Squad movie, no matter how big or small there’s still a cameo of him in there. It seams that even though the big three of the Justice League may soon be appearing on the big screen, it’s Batman who is the true glue holding them all together.
