I can't wait for the casting announcement for Batman so we can put the Levitt/Blake rumors to rest.

I believe that WB will go with Armie Hammer for the role, but I'm hoping for someone more.......... Bruce Wayne.

I'm just gonna say my pick and this is just me, is Liam McIntyre. Like Cavill he first appeared on t.v before landing his lead role on Spartacus which he made his own. He will next appear in one of the Hercules films out next year in a supporting role. He's the type of guy who could make Batman his own for this next generation if you will, of batman films. He's proven in Spartacus he can handle being the leading man as well as all the physicality that will come with being batman. Plus dudes handsome :P and has that jaw the new batman needs aha yes slight man crush I know!

And yeah Bruno I agree with hoping they have a new emblem :)

YES. About time! I wish it was coming sooner than 2015, but a movie of this magnitude shouldn't be rushed I suppose. The big question is: can Batman and Superman alone stand up to the Avengers sequel at the box office?

Hell yes! I think before The Avengers was out, The Dark Knight was the highest grossing superhero movie. If this movie doesn't come close to The Avengers, Justice League will. Arguably the two most iconic heroes teaming up in a live action movie? It'll make tons of cash.

I see this as Warner Bros. way of pushing for the Justice League movie by introducing Batman as part of the Man of Steel sequel. I'm still ridiculously excited for it, but I'm hoping that the focus will be on Superman and seeing Batman from Superman's point of view.

I heard rumours about Flash being released in 2016 and Justice League being released in 2017. Was this confirmed during the panel or was somebody talking out of their ass?

Personally I don't think a Flash solo film is necessary until after Justice League. Justice League seems to be Warner Bros. focus and I can understand that they're wanting to compete with the success of The Avengers. So naturally Snyder and Goyer are gonna be their go-to guys for this project.

But that to me is the only thing I can sort of imagine being disappointing about this Superman/Batman film. I really want the focus to be on Superman. To treat it like a Man of Steel sequel that just happens to feature Batman. Mostly because it's WB's way of pushing for the JL. And because of that it's like you won't get a proper Man of Steel sequel, where it's just Superman by himself, until long after the Justice League.

i'm excited, but also cautious as to how it will play out because I really do want the focus to be on Superman. Then of course, aside from Batman who would the villain be? My best guess would be Lex Luthor and Metallo. That seems the most likely route. And honestly, if they can nail the balance between the two characters right in this movie then Justice League shouldn't be a problem.

CRAZY NEWS!!! I JUST got in from my first viewing of Man Of Steel (which I absolutely loved by the way) only to immediately read this glorious announcement as soon as I get home! This may just be some of the best news I've heard/read in quite a while.
