Batman VS Superman by CharlesLogan Batman VS Superman by CharlesLogan
The Dark Knight versus The Man Of Steel.

As you might have noticed they are in their respective live action Nolan / Snyder outfits. I thought it'd be a nice take to see.

This piece was pretty much inspired by Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns graphic novel and its animation adaption (which is done very beautifully, mind you). Hence why Batman's armor looks more metallic than rubbery.

The pose reference is from Jim Lee's Hush.

The Characters of Batman and Superman belong to DC Comics.

P.S. Also this marks my comeback after a hiatus, what's up guize!

What's funny is taht you made this two months before it was announced that these are finally going to be in the same movie together!
A fantastic illustration depicting the World's Finest... as they're up against one another. I liked how you referenced Hush, which I hope DC will make an adaptation of in the future (perhaps in two parts like they did with The Dark Knight Returns Parts 1 and 2). And like adamisajoker5 mentioned, I believe you forgot the spikes on Batman's gauntlet(s). Other than that, your picture is a great piece regardless.
You forgot the spikes on Batman's gauntlets.

I just want to say: This is an awesome picture I love all the detailing on it ('specially since I can't do backgrounds ^^; )
and to the onlookers, Bruce Wayne is just a little less rich than Tony Stark, I'm sure he could afford to get his hands on a bit of Kryptonite... just my thoughts
Great work and you have real talent!
But considering the fact that kryptonite is said to be an extremely rare element or whatever,a fight between Batman (a human with gadgets) and Superman (a muthafucka who can lift buildings) should last about 2 seconds. Just saying. I love both characters a ton but the idea that Batman would always have some sort of great fight with Superman is kinda silly. But just nit picking.

And here we see Superman performing some impromptu laser knee surgery for the ailing Nolan-Batman! :lol:

Nice. This may be the only you'll see the movie version of Batman and Superman together.
