Despite rumors of Justice League and even a Batman reboot being scheduled for 2015, it appears that Warner Bros. is going another route for that year. According to Hero Complex, the Man Of Steel follow-up will be a Batman/Superman team-up movie. WB is expected to announce this at its San Diego Comic-Con panel today. Man Of Steel director Zack Snyder and screenwriter David S. Goyer are returning, as well as (of course) star Henry Cavill. Christopher Nolan (producer of Man Of Steel and director of The Dark Knight Trilogy) may produce, but his exact involvement is unknown. However, as previously confirmed, don't expect Christian Bale to return as Batman. 2015 is already packed with blockbusters, with The Avengers 2, Star Wars: Episode VII, Jurassic Park 4, Ant-Man, a Terminator reboot and more expected to be released that year. However, Batman/Superman will hopefully stand out as it continues to finally create a DC Cinematic Universe.

What do you think of this news? Stay tuned to CBM for more updates and WB's official announcement(s).

Finally! Some thought is going into this movie universe!
ndwwrestler2 - 7/20/2013, 9:54 AM
I need proof. I want this to happen...but I would like hear it confirmed by a director, producer, or actor.
DarkGrifter - 7/20/2013, 9:54 AM
Not exactly what I wanted, but glad they're gonna announce something other than MoS 2 :D
LucasMend - 7/20/2013, 9:54 AM
I would LOVE this to happen. But like Cavill and Snyder said, superman is not ready to either lead a team or meet someone else, I believe we need MOS2 first and then WORLD'S FINEST, but damn, hope this is true.

After Rises, good, rather not see Bale in it, though it would've been cool, just ignore the last 10 minutes of Rises if it did ever happen.

YES!
Scorn - 7/20/2013, 9:54 AM

BigDamnHero - 7/20/2013, 9:57 AM
I wonder if they'll reveal the new Batman at the panel too. Either way, this is gonna be dope!
TheAbaryMan369 - 7/20/2013, 9:58 AM
The day has come... but I have no idea what to say.
ForeverPowerful - 7/20/2013, 9:59 AM
There we go. That's how you do it.

Everyone start posting their bullshit and pointless fancasts now.
LEEE777 - 7/20/2013, 9:59 AM

What LEVI said

At least list this as RUMOR
TheManFromMars - 7/20/2013, 10:00 AM
Cool







if true
ekrolo2 - 7/20/2013, 10:00 AM
They don't need to give Batman his own movie, just introduce him in this one then partner him with Superman, we already know his origin and his rogues so why bother setting him up in his own movie?
LEEE777 - 7/20/2013, 10:00 AM
Hey @ ForeverPowerful.

A LOT of peeps put a lot of effort in them, can't beat a good fan cast!
DarkGrifter - 7/20/2013, 10:02 AM
If this announcement is going to happen this morning then I reckon it will happen at the 'Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Preview Their Upcoming Lineups' hall, which begins at 10:45...which is in 45 minutes :O
soda9 - 7/20/2013, 10:03 AM
Yes!!!!! A wonder if they'll announce a new actor for Batman.
LEEE777 - 7/20/2013, 10:03 AM
TheLogan @ The Wolverine should of been the first Wolvie movie and not that horrible Borigins, I'm glad FOX is waking up a bit :p
ForeverPowerful - 7/20/2013, 10:03 AM
Im not bashing anyone, there are some really good ideas on here. Im just saying it takes up a lot of space that could be applied to actually talking about the news.
LEEE777 - 7/20/2013, 10:05 AM
What NOMIS said ^^^

and exactly @ ekrolo2
ForeverPowerful - 7/20/2013, 10:05 AM
And no to the grey suit, we've been over that.

When have you ever seen a ninja wear a grey suit or a navy seal wear a grey suit? Exactly. Its because they try to stay hidden and in the shadows, and black is kind of looks like darkness. Bright grey isn't going to help Bats blend in.
whoa123 - 7/20/2013, 10:05 AM
MOS 2 + Batman reboot= World's Finest
ForeverPowerful - 7/20/2013, 10:06 AM
Wow, my phone butchered my last comment. I apologize.
Ocelot - 7/20/2013, 10:06 AM
World's finest, Superman and Batman vs Lex, Metallo and Brainiac. Followed by a Justice League movie where the league assembles to take on the Intergang who are being funded by Darkseid and his New Gods.
ForeverPowerful - 7/20/2013, 10:07 AM
@Levi

Im with you on Bale. They can make it work, I'm not trusting a single thing Bale or Goyer or any of these higher up guys say. They've lied plenty in the past.
LEEE777 - 7/20/2013, 10:07 AM
NOMIS @ Its cool!

That'll build up to the JLA movie for us and Joe Public and it wont look like DC is copying Marvel so much the way they do it, cool!
TTT0809 - 7/20/2013, 10:07 AM
YES YES YES YES YES!
I think JGL should play Bat's and have a Batman Beyond type suit.

ForeverPowerful - 7/20/2013, 10:08 AM
@Levi

You talking about the comics or the movie with Ben Affleck?

The comics works because its a comic. I think everyone knows what works in the comics doesn't necessarily works on film.

And if you mean the movie, well...the movie kind of speaks for itself on how that went down. Plus the red in that film was dark, almost wine red.

LEEE777 - 7/20/2013, 10:09 AM
Hellz yeah, Darkseid a must for the JLA film!
