Comic-Con 2013: Batman / Superman Film for 2015?

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…

Jesus guys are you seriously telling me that Man Of Steel wasn't far superior in any way to the previous Superman films? The 1st 4 were slapstick, camp and cheesy, that's not to say the first 2 weren't a lot of fun but could you take them seriously? Superman Returns is one of the most boring superhero movies of the last decade! At least X-Men Origins: Wolverine had more than 2 action set-pieces. Plus it's not called Batman and Superman it's Man of Steel 2, which is his sequel, the logo doesn't r More

Too early!!!!
I think Superman should have another stand alone movie before a team up. More
