Superman Batman movie 2015
This summer movie audiences met a new Superman. And in 2015, that Superman will meet Batman
In the final moments of Saturday morning's Warner Bros/Legendary panel at Comic-Con, moderator Chris Hardwick had Man of Steel director Zack Snyder and star Henry Cavill on stage. Snyder announced, “It’s official that we are going to make another Superman movie. I’ve poured through the DC universe for a way to tell this thing.”
With that, Man of Steel actor Harry Lennix joined the stage to read what turned out to be the big reveal.
"I want you to remember, Clark, in all the years to come, in all your most private moments, I want you to remember my hand at your throat. I want you to remember the one man who beat you."
Following that passage from Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns, the screen behind the stage changed to illuminate a graphic showing the Superman symbol positioned with the Batman logo.
Snyder was careful to say that they weren't adapting Miller's 1986 miniseries, but said the Dark Knight Returns passage will help "tell you something" about the upcoming film.
Quickly following the panel, Warner Bros. sent out a press release that solidified details but also left some mysteries for this Man of Steel follow-up. As far as casting goes, Cavill will be joined by returning castmates Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane; although Lennix appeared at this panel, nothing has been said about his continuing role in the franchise.
Also coming back from the first Man of Steel is the screenwriter David S. Goyer with Snyder co-writing. Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas will be in as executive producers, but also adding Benjamin Melniker and Michael E. Uslan from The Dark Knight trilogy.
“I’m so excited to begin working again with Henry Cavill in the world we created, and I can’t wait to expand the DC Universe in this next chapter, " Snyder said in a press release. "Let’s face it, it’s beyond mythological to have Superman and our new Batman facing off, since they are the greatest Super Heroes in the world."
"Superman and Batman together on the big screen is a dream come true for DC fans everywhere. All of us at DC Entertainment could not be more excited for Zack’s continuing vision for the DC Universe, " added Diane Nelson, president, DC Entertainment, also in the press release.
Warner Bros. Pictures official twitter account also added this:
