    This morning, the LA Times Hero Complex broke the news that Warner Bros. has plans for the Caped Crusader to join in for the 2015 sequel to MAN OF STEEL. The Hollywood Reporter chimed in to confirm, and it looks like we're likely to see the team-up, featuring Henry Cavill in a reprisal of his role as Superman, along with a yet-to-be-announced Batman. David Goyer and Zach Snyder are also expected to be attached to this project.

    Also rumored to be in development: a FLASH movie for 2016 and the much-awaited JUSTICE LEAGUE film in 2017.

    We'll find out more after the Warner Bros./Legendary panel (currently in session!).

    Update

    The Batman/Superman movie is officially happening!

    "Snyder is co-writing the story with David S. Goyer, who will then pen the screenplay. Production is expected to begin in 2014, with an anticipated release date in Summer 2015."

    If this is true, he only needs to make a cameo, not a team up.

    If is true PLEASE for the love of god pair David Goyer with someone who is actually talented. Someone who can take his story outlines and pulp sensibility and refine them into soemthing not totally stupid. the first half of Man of Steel is itneresting, not all that well executed, but from a overall pulled out view I can understand the appeal. But that clashes so utterly with the later half of the film. Maybe because mixing Batman and Superman together requires going a bit more hard action and a bit less contemplative stoicisim things will turn out better.

    I think this is a really good idea, with Batman and Superman already having met and worked together when the Justice League film rolls around it wont be bogged down by by the Bat/Sups first meet up

    The question is...who plays Batman?

    I wouldn't mind Joseph Gordon-Levitt for some continuity if Christian Bale refuses to don the cowl again.

    They're rebooting Batman from what I've heard

    And I would hate him as Batman. He is completely unqualified to play the role

    @alkusanagi: See now you sound stupid. I will say as a big Supes fan I had high hopes for it but really didn't enjoy the film. But there were a lot of people who did and couldn't stop talking about it. Where do you get your sources.

    Superman/Batman movie? & it's not animated? It's live-action? Excuse me for a second...

    YES, YES, YES, FINALLY A LIVE-ACTION SUPERMAN/BATMAN MOVIE!!!!!!! HELL YEAH, THIS IS AWESOME!!!

    *Clears throat* So yeah, Superman/Batman movie, should be great. Flash getting a movie too? Sweet. Justice League in 2017? Cool. To bad Wonder Woman no news for a live action. Be interesting to see. What are they going to with Green Lantern? Use The Green Lantern movie from 2011 or reboot that?

    @maccyd: I'm also kind of peeved by this. Honestly, I think they should just do a direct translation of Azzarello's New 52 run. I get there's a lot of people that are unhappy with his changes but I didn't care at all about Wondy preboot and now it's my favorite book of the lot and I know a lot of people who feel the same way.

    Well with the confirmation of World's Finest (or what ever they choose to call it), I do hope that this is the case.There needs to be a Man of Steel 2. And with the Bats and Supes in a movie, maybe we'll get to forgo the whole rehashing Bats origin and just get to straight to the core of the character.

    Same here, I hope and pray to God that they use nothing from Frank Miller piece of shit The Dark Knight Returns aka Look how much of a badass I am. Can we just do this right way and have them as the world's finest, you know beating the crap out of bad guys instead of each other, Frank Miller's "Superman" if you can even call him that was NOT Superman, I think any sane comic book reader can agree on that.
