The Dark Knight Vs. The Man Of Steel: The Score

Posted by Grey Saturday, February 27, 2010

POW!!! Take that, Superman.

The never-ending battle royale between two of the greatest comic characters-turned-pop culture icons continues.

Just last Monday (February 22nd), Action Comics #1, first published in 1938 and featuring the debut of Superman, were sold at the price of $1 million, more than tripling the previous comic book sales record set last year.

Not one to be outdone, Batman struck back with Detective Comics #27, which went under the hammer for a record $1.075 million, at Heritage Auction Galleries in New York. The comic were first published in 1939 for ten cents and featuring the Dark Knight's first appearance.

Meanwhile over at the comic-to-movie scene, David Goyer, the writer of The Dark Knight, was commissioned to take over the writing chore of the long-rumored next installment of the Superman franchise, along with Christopher Nolan (who have already been asked to be the guardian angel to the Superman project)'s brother, Jonathan Nolan, who also happened to be the co-writer of The Dark Knight. What's even more outrageous, would be the rumor that Jonathan have been asked to helm the project.

Regardless of the credibility of the rumors, it is obvious that Warner Bros and DC would want to emulate the success of the rejuvenated Batman franchise on the Superman franchise.

So score two for Batman.
