"Justice League": Exploring How Superman Returns (Again)
Film, Comic Books
Pete Holmes is on a superhero streak this week: After giving Logan his walking papers as Professor X in “Ex-Men: Wolverine,” the comedian returns to his periodic College Humor role as a dimwitted, foul-mouthed, Bale-voiced Badman in “Batman vs. Superman.”
This time, he’s approached by the Man of Steel to put their differences aside and work together, a proposition that perplexes the Dark Knight.
“Why?” Badman responds. “I have no special powers. […] My main nemesis is Bane, basically just a ‘roided-out jock with a gas mask, and he straight-up broke my back. You coulda taken him down with one hand, and with the other hand you could’ve just jerked him.”
However, it’s not all humor at Batman’s expense; Superman takes a few hits, too, particularly once Commissioner Gordon arrives. Needless to say, the video probably isn’t exactly safe for work.
