Additionally, I think Affleck is a solid choice as a grizzled Batman, I think Cavill was fine (although a bit monotone) as Superman, and I think Gadot looks stunning as Wonder Woman. I just hope Snyder can mesh the dynamic between the two characters together....

Maybe they don't fight, and they shouldn't. But based on what is hinted and the armor, and the damn title, you think they might face off a bit.
When I say realistic, I mean gritty, non-comic book feeling. When your story is about an alien then you are inherently going to get some sci-fi element...

Read what I wrote. In TDKR Superman is hurt by a nuke, he has trouble deflecting a nuke, Batman stands toe to toe with him before kryptonite. He is way underpowered compared to Snyder's version of Superman in MOS.
Superman in MOS, would have punted the nuke out of the galaxy, and would rip Batm...

The problem, Scruffy, is that Snyder made a a non-comic book world. It was more grounded ala the Nolan Batman films (aside from Matrix tentacles at the end).
Also, 90% of your audience is non-comic book readers. So they have the Burton films, the Schumacher films, and the Nolan films. Burton...

That is what I tried to point out yesterday. In MOS they move and fight so fast, it reminds you of the The Matrix at the end, when Neo is basically having a beer while fighting Agent Smith. Humans stand absolutely no chance against any Kryptonian the way they set it up in MOS. A metal suit isn't ...

I don't get how they co-exist in screen. In MOS he moves so fast that Batman would look ridiculous next to him. What value physically does he add, zero right? The costume in those stills he look like the hulk buster from IM3.

I am hoping that trailers are Wolverine-centric as a marketing ploy to get butts in seats, and that the movie will focus more on the First Class cast.
