Goku VS Superman UPDATE
Hey guys, we wanted to give you an update on Goku VS Superman. we've seen a lot of comments and questions, and we hate to keep you guys in the dark.
For those that don't know, ever since Zelda VS Peach we hired Jordan Lange, a talented animator, to build the fight animations we write. He does not work in our office, in fact he doesn't even live in the same state as us. While we'd love to have an animator in house, Lange was without a doubt our best option. He's an incredibly skilled animator whose skills and experience fit DEATH BATTLE like a glove. In addition, this fight is being built in 3D, so Lange has had a giant task of building cities, landscapes, character models and animating moves and effects.
Why was it delayed?
One reason: the fight sequence. Every other part has been 100% complete since before the 21st. However, we wrote an incredibly epic fight, which Lange has been working on since October. In pre-production, we were assured that a December 21st release date would be plenty of time to get the animation done. While Lange's original deadline 2 weeks prior was missed, up until a few days before release Lange assured us that we would absolutely have the fight on time. We all agreed that we needed to make this episode perfect for you guys, and cutting corners was not an option, so we were happy to give whatever time he needed before the 21st. Lange didn't want to let the fans down with a delay and was busting his ass to make it as awesome as it needs to be. However, there were some issues which caused unforeseen problems. So when the time came, the animation was not complete. NO ONE wanted this to be up on the 21st more than the three of us, but again, we refused to cut corners. You guys deserve better than that. In the end, we all decided the second half of the fight needed to be reanimated, which is what Lange has been working on day and night.
So when is it coming out?
It's almost complete. Unfortunately, Lange's animation methods make it hard for him to give us an exact completion date, only a vague estimate. So, before we give you a release date, we want to be sure beyond any shadow of a doubt that you will absolutely 100% get the episode on that date. The next update from us will be THE release date for Goku VS Superman (and it will be very soon). When you see the episode, you'll see just how much work has been put into this fight.
Thank you all SO MUCH for your patience and support.

here is an idea for a battle ganondorf v.s. shau khan
The ultimate rivalry..... Shadow The Hedgehog VS Sonic The Hedgehog!!!!!!!!! This battle has hundreds if not thousands of epic youtube pokemon online game videos of this battle. Now... we need to find out who would actually win. And don't just use their superforms... go dark Sonic/Shadow.
I don't even remember what I said but I believe this battle could have been done with sprites. It just would not have been as detailed as the 3d animation was. And I still standby my opinion that the 3D animation should not ever be done again unless they hire a team of animators and not just one guy. Also, I am not ungrateful, I just wasn't a huge fan of the animation they used.
Ungrateful aren't we. There was a reason 2D wasn't even an option. It's because the animation they wanted could not have been pulled off with sprites.
well said. people have bitched me out for making the same point only less intelligently and more furiously. facts are facts, when you charge for content then you as a company are obligated to deliver on whatever product your supposed to be producing. if there was no advantage program then i as well would just wait and hope. but i have payed for three months specificly because goku vs superman waiting so fuck you free members cause i payed 12 bucks and still haven't Sean the battle i wanted yet, that i was promised about a month ago.
I hope so, but i do understand the issues. If i where them, i would post it till nxt yr with all the backlash. Its only ONE animator not pixar and they dont have a million dollar production buget to dig into.
shweet. I hope its today, not because I'm impatient but I have today off and it would be cool.
Who cares if they're making money. Does it come out of your pocket? Look, there are 3 guys who make these videos and 1 who does ALL THE ANIMATIONS! This is going to be the best fight they've ever animated and they want it perfect and it's in 3d like the link/cloud battle. And who really cares about the sneak preview? Really? If you care so much then maybe it is worth $3.95 a month. This is a free business that has pumped out more good episodes than most television networks and hasn't asked for anything in return. Stop whining.
The preview fight has been up on YouTube several places for a while.
Actually to be technical they make money by companies paying the owners of screwattack.com to advertise certain products on the website. The more popular the website, the more of an audience these companies think they can reach. With that knowledge they are willing to pay more money to put their advertisements on screwattack.com. They don't make a certain amount of money for every post. Actually them not releasing Goku vs. Superman is hurting them because they know people are getting pissed and not coming back to the website. Me personally I only watch deathbattle. Im patient but others are not. If you are going to argue the private incentive than know what your talking about. Your coming off as a corporate conspiracy theorist. I understand your frustrated. We all are to a certain extent. But believe me this isn't a corporate conspiracy theory.
I've gotta say it. Sorry, I just can't let your ignorance go unchecked. You do realize that in all of your condescending "holier then thou" speak about how just visiting this site makes them revenue...that in you being here and posting the drivel you did...you're giving them money as well right? Here's a novel idea for you. How about...you sit in your lil' chair...have you a nice, frosty glass of SHUT THE FUCK UP...and wait for the episode like everyone else. Cuz guess what? You're gonna keep checking back to the site like everyone else to see what's going on. That's generally how it works. When you want information on something, you go to the SOURCE of the info to find out what's going on.
Unless you've got an inside track on the goings on behind the scenes at ScrewAttack.com, your whole above statement is in a word, stupud. And yes...I spelled the word incorrectly because at your level of ignorance you don't deserve the "i". On behalf of the members here who're growing tired of people like you finding every excuse to say anything and everything negative about this scenario...shut the fuck up you FUCKING moron. Kthanxbye.
Everyone saying "just be patient, give these guys time to work, no need to bite their heads off, the finished product is gonna be worth the wait, etc" need to remember that Death Battle and ScrewAttack make money off of your traffic. Every day that passes and this isn't released, everyone that visits this site adds dollars to this website's total revenue. Do you feel right knowing that you're making a company richer for not turning out a product?
Nevermind the fact that the sneak preview for this particular work still hasn't been released outside of Advantage to help quell the cries of fanboys wanting SOMETHING - wouldn't be a far cry to claim that it's staying in Advantage to get the antsy Goku vs Superman audience to shell out $3.95 per month for that sliver of extra content. This is sketchy business to say the least!
-_- I have no words.
The Spirit Bomb is Ki, NOT white sunlight. Furthermore, if Supes could get energy from something colored yellow, blue, or white, he could charge himself up with a lightbulb. This is clearly not the case.
Okay, I lied, I DO have words.
Wizard got it from a completely inaccurate source and apparently retracted it later. Even if I'm wrong about the above, it's clearly completely inaccurate, as shown here: http://teamfourstar.com/forums/showthread.php?8223-Superman-Vs-goku&s=ed...
He should be dead, but isn't. I would be perfectly happy to see his plot protection stripped away and see how many times Ash SHOULD have died. LOL
So maybe hatin on the death battle crew and so many people hatin on the haters. We should all just chill. Time spent not seeing this battle is time the team are taking to make this battle fricken awesome.
Ahh well said :)
It will be put up. Then the site crashes ... Lol
