Now, while 2016's may not have been all that well received by fans or movie critics, it sure was an immediate high point in the eagerly awaited ' fighting ' cinematic sub-genre. After all, while both the cause of and eventual end to the pair's battling may have proven disappointing, the actual fight itself fulfilled many a fan's lifelong dream. With the pair ending the movie on the same side, though, it seemed likely that we wouldn't get a chance to see a rematch in 2017's .

Plus, she actually has helpful things like "actual leadership experience" and "a lifetime of public service: behind her, which surely makes her a shoe-in for the job.

Actually, wait... Does that make Batman the in this equation? He is a largely unqualified billionare whose success has largely been based on the wealth of his parents and his swelteringly overgrown ego, after all.

Someone probably ought to check the size of 's hands, stat...
