Superman/Batman movie coming in 2016
 
Not official yet... but it sounds like it will be soon. Justice League to come in 2017.

After decades of fighting evil solo, Batman and Superman will finally be teaming up on the big screen, sources confirm to The Hollywood Reporter.

Man of Steel director Zack Snyder will direct the tentpole with Henry Cavill returning as Superman. It is unclear who will play Batman in the new film. A release date of 2015 has been set, with a Flash movie appearing in 2016 and a Justice League movie in 2017.

Snyder's Man of Steel, which rebooted the Superman franchise, has grossed north of $600 million worldwide since it hit theaters this June.

Warner Bros. is about to bring together two of its most iconic heroes: Superman and Batman will unite in a new film, the follow-up to “Man of Steel,” set for release in 2015.

According to two sources with knowledge of the movie, Warner Bros. intends to announce the news at its Comic-Con International panel Saturday morning. Said a Warner Bros. spokesperson, “We don’t comment on rumors regarding these properties.”

“Man of Steel” director Zack Snyder is expected to reunite with screenwriter David S. Goyer and star Henry Cavill for the new film. It’s unlikely Christian Bale will step back into the bat suit, as the actor has indicated publicly that he has moved on from his days as Bruce Wayne.

“Man of Steel” producer and “Dark Knight” trilogy director Christopher Nolan is expected by some to produce the project, but the exact nature of his involvement is unclear.

The move marks the culmination of years of effort on the part of Warner Bros. and DC Comics to bring their superheroes together in a similar fashion to their primary competitor Marvel, which successfully combined its superheroes into a $1.5-billion box-office hit with “The Avengers.”

In the comic world, the two heroes are teaming up in a new series, “Batman/Superman,” by writer Greg Pak and artist Jae Lee.

Not a surprise, but neat nonetheless.

Makes sense, Supes and Batman are the only two DC superheroes with box office clout.

Stupid question,

Why would Superman even need Batman?

The biggest question for me is whether or not it's the traditional Batman or The Dark Knight?

To break a billion at the box office.

Good question. Since Bale won't be involved, will this be a Batman reboot, or continue the continuity of the Nolan films? I suspect it will be a reboot. But if Nolan is still involved.......hmm...

If Nolan is still involved, it would surprise me to see JGL as The Dark Knight, with a "prequel" some point down the road.

Ok yea....I can roll with that. JGL was great in the last movie.

Well, it was implied that he was "The Dark Knight Rising" at the end of the film, so it makes sense continuity wise.

Yep.

I really would've liked a sequel to Man of Steel with just Supes.

I would watch an Aquaman movie before I spend money on anything Superman related. I have very low expectations for this movie as well as the proposed Justice League movie.

Looks like a new bat symbol. Strikes me as a disconnect from the previous franchise.
