Most stories require adversity. High-minded literature folks even have it down to a science. Broadly speaking, all plot conflicts boil down to Man vs. Man, Man vs. Nature, Man vs. Society, and Man vs. Self. Well, that’s figured out. Everyone can go home now!
Thanks to Batman Vee Superman: Dawn of Justice’s upcoming release (not to mention Civil War, which is just around the corner), this month has us thinking specifically about the Man vs. Man conflict, in which one person (maybe a pissed off alien with superpowers) has a big brawl with another person (perhaps a rich crime fighter who dresses like a bat-guy). Few things are as fun as watching two fictional characters knock each other around for a while, and we plan to highlight some of cinema’s best matches.
But that’s not all. We also want to highlight behind-the-scenes conflicts as well as situations in which two movies about the same thing come out at around the same time. We just like the fights. It doesn’t really matter who or what is punching who or what.
So join us all throughout the month of March. Some really great articles are on the way. And feel free to chime in on your favorite VS movies in the comments.
