so i just heard about the man of steel sequel with it being "superman vs batman"...am i the only one who thinks this is a terrible idea??
No one knows what it's going to be based on yet, and the "Superman vs. Batman" title is only a rumor at this point. All we know is that it's a Man of Steel sequel, that will have Batman in it.
The World's Finest is a comic arc with Batman and Superman teaming up, much like Justice League but only with those two. That could be the basis of the next movie, although it probably won't be. My guess is that Superman will have some reason to go to Gotham (Lex Luthor rebuilds Metropolis and blames Superman for it's destruction, starts a PR campaign to publicly shame Superman, Superman takes time to work elsewhere). While in Gotham, he meets a very green/amateurish Batman, who figures out that Superman is Clark Kent. They start working together, and team up to fight Brainiac, who Lex Luthor has been working with and who is trying to destroy the world. Batman would be the brains and Superman would be the brawn.
But that could be totally wrong, it could be more like the scene from The Dark Knight Rises, although I highly doubt it. That was based on a much older Batman, and why WB/DC would reboot Batman to be in his 60s/70s is beyond me. And to defeat Superman, he needed not only Robin, but also an out-for-vengeance Green Arrow, who lost his arm because of Supes. That's a lot of backstory to introduce into an origin story for Batman, and a lot of characters. Granted, they could change the story up, but I don't see why. People don't want to see heroes fighting each other, they want to see heroes fighting together. They could have some minor squabbles, like The Avengers had, but anything more would be a bad idea.

They need to do a Green Arrow flick - the billionaire that loses his fortune and protects the city with his bow and arrow would make a good movie
Other than his being a bed wetting,pinko lib, Green Arrow was always one of my favorites
They won't do a Green Arrow movie for a long time. But, Arrow on CW is actually surprisingly entertaining. The first half of the season isn't as good as the second half, where they definitely get the formula worked out. Season 2 starts airing in October I believe.
