Great news and rumors, everyone!

In an article yesterday published by the New York Post, they interviewed Henry Cavill and Zack Snyder on Man of Steel. In it, it was confirmed that:

  • Cavill is signed on to be Superman in at least 3 more films.
  • Snyder says that “I don’t know how ‘Justice League’ is going to be handled. Honestly, I don’t,” “But ‘The Man of Steel’ exists, and Superman is in it. I don’t know how you’d move forward without acknowledging that.”
  • And when asked if he had some meetings at WB about hinting to a bigger universe (the DCCU), he says: “Um, how can I answer that?” “I can’t really say anything to that, because that’s a big spoiler. I will say, yeah, they trust me to keep them on course.”

So there we have it. Cavill's gonna be Superman for a while, Man of Steel may be the first film of the DCCU, and, if all looks right, Cavill will be in your eventual JL film.

Here's the article if you guys wanna check it out:

If they are going to do a JL movie, what are they going to do with Batman?

Welp, from what I gather, Batman's next solo film is slated for 2016. JL is supposedly due for 2015, so my best guess is that they'll re-introduce him in JL, then give him his spin-off. I expect they'll do the same for Flash and WW. GL is the one I'm curious about, though.

Replacing Hulk didn't kill avengers, replacing Hal and Bruce won't kill JLA. Bale looks busy on his schedule, he could have stand-in for all his Bat scenes and only do Bruce.
I think he pretty much hinted Henry is Superman as they cant pretend MOS does not exist.
