Superman/Batman Film Announced for 2015

You knew it had to happen someday, but it appears 2015 is when the inevitable Superman/Batman World’s Finest movie will be hitting the screen.

Announced at San Diego Comic Con on Saturday, Zack Snyder took to the stage to announce that the sequel to Man of Steel is currently being scripted by himself and David S. Goyer and that it will feature both Superman and Batman. To comic book fans, this is possibly the biggest news in the history of news.

Superman and Batman have a long history of teaming up – mainly in a comic book series called World’s Finest – and also of being untrusting of one another. Superman doesn’t agree with Batman’s methods, and Batman has always believed Superman is seconds away from turning against humanity. The two have fought many times over the years, with Batman almost always fighting Superman to a draw because he has brains where Superman only has strength.

To get everyone in the mood, one of the most famous speeches given by Batman to Superman in The Dark Knight Returns was recited on stage:

I want you to remember, Clark, in all the years to come. In all your private moments. I want you to remember my hand at your throat. I want you to remember, the one man who beat you.

Should we take this as a hint they will be adversaries in the film? Only time will tell.

Henry Cavill will reprise his role of Clark Kent/Superman with Amy Adams returning as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White and Diane Lane as Martha Kent. No word on who will don the cowl yet for Batman. Since it has been established that Nolan’s Batman films exist in a different universe, that means it will probably be someone other than Christian Bale.

The project is due in 2015, the same year as The Avengers 2… imagine that.
