2014 Fox Preview!

Optimistic about this one.

Really hope it's a complete film without any of that "dark middle chapter of a trilogy/let's save all the big stuff for the next one" stuff...

A Ridley Scott Biblical epic is more than welcome, and this would be the second time a Batman plays Moses (after Val Kilmer in Prince of Egypt)

Loved the first one, looking forward to this sequel. Yeah, the "meet the in-laws" plot is an old trope, but I'm looking forward to it and am glad pretty much the entire cast from the first one is back.
