In this clip, Lex Luthor says, "Bruce Wayne meets Clark Kent."
Could he have said instead, "Bruce Wayne is meeting Clark Kent." in the same context?
What's the reason for going with the present simple tense in the actual dialogue?
Maybe I should have laid out some backdrop against which this question is posed, in order to solicit a better, more fitting answer.
As far as I know, there's this general rule of the English grammar that is nicely presented as follows:
In particular, we often use the simple present ("I walk to the store") to refer to habitual actions, and the simple progressive ("I am walking to the store") to refer to currently ongoing actions.
Which was quoted from the most upvoted answer to this question.
Doesn't BW meeting CK refer to a "currently ongoing action", as opposed to a "habitual action"? Then, why the present simple?
