Dear Mr. and Mrs. Snyder, Ms. Nelson, Mr. Goyer and Mr. Meyer,

Hello, I am writing to you in response to your attempts at making a Superman/Batman movie. I am a longtime fan and enthusiast of these two characters, dating back to early childhood. My earliest memories involve seeing Adam West and George Reeves on television as Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent, respectively, as well as their alter egos, thanks to the magic of television syndication. I am the floor manager of the Times Square location of the largest comics retail entity in the world, Midtown Comics, and that’s in no small part thanks to the actors that have portrayed Superman and Batman. I have taken great interest in your project, but have some reservations. By no means do I want you to discontinue your project, but I would like to bring up some points for you to consider.
