I was going to refer to this in a planned blog entry about fictional movies in other works of fiction, but the announcement over the weekend of Warner Bros.’ planned “Man of Steel” sequel featuring Batman – and the accompanying release of the logo at San Diego Comic Con – prompted me to go ahead and use this.
When the Will Smith movie “I Am Legend” came out in 2007, the big-screen adaptation of the Richard Matheson story was set in some unspecified point in the future.
As Smith’s character patrolled the deserted – of human life, anyway – streets of New York, glimpsed in the background is a huge marquee for a Superman/Batman movie.
That logo is seen in the photo above.
The Comic Con logo for the 2015 Superman/Batman team-up is this one.
So can we expect the end of the world in 2015?
As long as I get to see the “Avengers” sequel first …
