Some potentially huge breaking news from inside Comic-Con today: according to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. is set to announce that Henry Cavill’s Man Of Steel Superman will be teaming up with Batman in 2015, followed by a stand-alone Flash film in 2016 and the long-gestating Justice League in 2017.
Zack Snyder is set to direct the Supes/Bats team-up, which will be scripted by Man Of Steel collaborator David S. Goyer.
With Cavill back in the super-suit, the big question remains as to who will play Bruce Wayne/Batman, since Christian Bale has ruled out a return.
There are even fewer details thus far on the Flash and Justice League announcements beyond the release years, but with the Warner Bros./Legendary panel happening as we write this, expect more news to hit fairly soon today.
We have one of our best embedded in Comic-Con’s Hall H, so expect Empire’s team to bring you all the details once we have them…
