Batman/Superman movie announced!

Warner Brothers announced Batman/Superman at a panel which featured Man of Steel director, Zack Snyder.

No news on the story or the actor playing Batman, but it does appear Zack Snyder will direct it and co-write The Dark Knight writer, David Goyer. Christopher Nolan will also be producing the movie, like he did Man of Steel.

Our friends at Batman-news.com also found that official logo above, via Twitter.

I was thinking that as well, perhaps the Superman-Batman relationship will receive it's main inspiration from that book?

http://uk.ign.com/articles/2013/07/20/r ... ie-planned

The article mentions that 'MOS actor Harry Lennix read the passage from The Dark Knight Returns as a way to formally announce that the next Superman movie will include Batman' meaning that at least some part of the movie would be inspired by the book.

I was hoping they wouldn't waste a lot of time with them being at odds and fighting each other since I hate the whole "heroes fighting when they first meet" trope being overdone and the corny "who would win in a fight?" discussions that plague the genre, but they're going there. Although I did like the Thor and Iron Man battle in Avengers and that was at least over quickly.

And I while I wanted a Superman focused MOS sequel first, I feel good about this one. And I think introducing the new Batman in a movie with superpowered characters is the best way to do it after Nolan's trilogy to avoid the burden that comes with doing a solo Batman film following those films. People will be hyped for the team up and not dwelling on comparing the movie to Nolan's movies.

Man of Steel 2 IS World's Finest!

Well, it's official. Batman WILL appear in MOS2. And it seems like they won't get along.

Director Zack Snyder officially announced that Batman will indeed appear in his follow-up to "Man of Steel." He revealed a logo for the movie that combines Superman's "S" shield (yes, we know it's not an "S") with the Bat-symbol, which notably looked different than the one in Christopher Nolan's trilogy. They also used a quote from Frank Miller's groundbreaking graphic novel "The Dark Knight Returns" where Batman and Superman engage in a fight to the finish. Batman says, "I want you to remember my hand at your throat. I want you to remember the one man who beat you." So we can assume that the two icons won't be getting along in the new movie. Henry Cavill is definitely returning, as are Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane, but Batman has yet to be cast.

"I want you to remember Clark. In all the years to come. In all your private moments. In all the years to come, my hand at your throat. I want you to remember, the one man who beat you."
- Batman.

It was. According to all the sites, and the picture looks like it's from Comic Con. The links have the full articles detailing everything.

Honestly, I'm not a great fan of this movie idea, I was expecting to see a MOS 2 before The World's Finest movie, but well, I prefer to see Batman being introduced in this way than in the JL movie. Let's see where this will go.
BTW I didn't like the Batman symbol in that image.

I like it for that reason. Rather than having your typical mos - superman faces off against zod then having a sequel where he faces off against Luthor or whoever, we're getting a major franchise teaming up with another major franchise. It's something different and I'm really looking forward to it.

I listened to the footage on the batman news website and it sounded amazinggggg. People sounded really excited. Regarding the logo/emblem. Is that the actual one? I know its the one they used at comic con but It does look like they've just put the dark knight returns one behind the mos one. Plus with it not even finished writing yet I doubt they've designed the new bat logo. I would of hoped they would make their own instead of copying tdkr one.

This is great. I wonder who will play Batman. I'm happy as long as it isn't Bale or Levitt.

At least that's what I'm hoping for. I want to see a new and original Batsymbol and a little similar to the Arkhamverse one. I never liked that symbol from TDKR.
