Get ready Batman and Superman fans; it looks like both DC Comic’s two most recognised heroes will finally team up together at last in 2015 and Man of Steel director Zack Snyder will be on the helm on directing. It was revealed today at Comic-Con in San Diego by Snyder himself and even revealed Batman/Superman logo to entice the audiences.
This isn’t anything new on the idea of Batman and Superman teaming up together. It all started in 1954 called World’s Finest and then Frank Miller changed all that by having them fight against each other in 1986 with The Dark Knight Returns.
This comes with a sigh of relief as a Batman/Superman team-up movie has been in development since early 2000s, though starting out having Batman and Superman fighting against each other titled Batman vs. Superman. Wolfgang Petersen (Das Boot and The NeverEnding Story) was set to direct with a script written by Andrew Kevin Walker (Se7en and Sleepy Hollow). Until Warner Bros. and DC Comics decided to scrap the project and reboot Batman with Batman Begins in 2005 and make Superman Returns a sequel to Superman II.
The movie will be the follow-up to Man of Steel with Henry Cavill reprising his role as Superman but there’s no word who will be cast as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Then it will eventually lead to the long-delayed Justice League movie, in the same style on Marvel leading their solo movies to The Avengers and also reports The Flash movie is in the works.
