I feel like the whole “Superman and Batman in the same movie” idea has been in development hell for years.
It appears that Batman and Superman will finally be teaming up on the big screen. Warner Bros is expected to make the announcement today or tomorrow at Comic-Con in San Diego. The movie would be a follow-up to Man of Steel, and Zack Snyder would return as director.
Henry Cavill will reprise his role as Superman, but it is unclear who will play Batman in the new film. Christian Bale has said he will not return as Batman, after starring in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy.
This potential Batman & Superman film could mean that DC is building toward a Justice League movie, as well as finally giving some of their other superheroes (Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, etc.) their own solo movies.
