Warner Bros. announces Batman and Superman Movie
After months of rumors and speculation Warner Bros. is about to make a huge official announcement at the San Diego Comic-Con — a Batman/Superman movie is coming in 2015! The movie will serve as a follow-up to Man of Steel and is being directed by Zack Snyder. Snyder is also co-writing the story with David Goyer, the man responsible for writing the Dark Knight trilogy with Christopher Nolan. Speaking of Nolan, he’ll be back as an executive producer for Batman/Superman.
Based on the press release below it sounds like Batman is being “rebooted” here, and will not be played by Christian Bale.
The upcoming film will be helmed by Man of Steel director Zack Snyder and will see the return of Henry Cavill as Superman in the upcoming installment. The film will also bring back screenwriter David S. Goyer for what is sure to be a project that will garner unprecedented levels of hype from fans. A team-up film between Batman and Superman has never been attempted by Warner Bros.
There’s no word yet on who may take up the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman as ‘The Dark Knight’ star Christian Bale has made it abundantly clear that he no longer wishes to return to the role.
