So the Batman we're getting is one where putting the Penguin in jail or banging some chick he don't even really like is more important than mankind being wiped out by aliens
Plus the alien stuff escalated quickly. It's not like Bats had a 30 day warning.
I aint really asking this question or wondering but these excuses are weak. An experienced Batman doesn't have a contingency plan for an alien invasion? He needs 30 days?
I'm not really making excuses, I am creating my own reasons why, I am sure you can make one yourself if you really think about it, no matter how absurd it is (how absurd could it be for a comic book film?).
And yeah, if dude doesn't know there are aliens out there, why would he have a contingency plan? How would he know a Kryptonian that can withstand missiles exist? As you said dudes been dealing with drug dealers and purse snatchers, not Darkseid or Doomsday. We don't know what Batman we are getting. Is it so far fetch that his first exposure to actual aliens is seeing Zod on screen for the first time?
I mean obviously banging Talia was a joke, the same with the 30 days with the running joke is that Batman will beat anyone when prepared. But ya'll were doubting Bruce Waynes ability to get back to Gotham within a few day in TDKR, what if he was in that same situation when MoS happened? What if he was in a worst situation? What if he wasn't really prepared for an alien invasion? What if dude was on a secret get away with Robin?
Again we don't know so you just got to let your imagination run with why you would think he isn't there, to me that it more fun than just being negative and trying to discredit everything the movie has done.
I mean seriously, all of you thinks you can do better than Goyer or Fox, come up with your own situation on why Bats wouldn't be there to help and go with that until they actually f' up and say "dude was just too lazy in his batcave and watches the whole thing unfold."
