Default Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Comic-Con 2013 Live: Warner Bros' Extended Hall H Presentation
Quote:
1:23PM - Hardwick holds up a note that says "please introduce Zack Snyder to the stage." Last minute surprise.

1:24PM - "We're going to make another Superman movie. What is it about?" He doesn't want to tell us that. Maybe there's a single element that will be in the film that we could... help you out with.

1:25PM - He "poured through the DC universe for a way to tell this thing..." They're still writing it, and there is a thing that I found that could help us understand.

1:26PM - He brings out Harry Lennox, who was in Man of Steel, to read something. They're not adapting this, but he's reading something that will help us understand.

1:28PM - "I want you to remember Clark, in all the years to come, in all the private moments, I want you to remember my hand at your throat. I want you remember the one hand that beat you." Quote from The Dark Knight Returns.

1:30PM - It's official. After he speaks the quote, the stage goes dark and a Batman/Superman logo is revealed. It's official - Batman and Superman are teaming up for the next Superman movie. It's happening.

1:32PM - And that's it. The panel is over as soon as the quote and logo were revealed. But the DC news is official.

And so it begins. I'm extremely interested to see if the ousting of Jeff Robinov had anything to do with this direction they're going in.

And considering he's been responsible for WB's tentpole success for the past decade, I'm curious to see how they'll do without him.

Agreed. Kind of reminds me of the Brave and the Bold symbol...

It just looks really squashed.

I wonder if this will be a true 50/50 team up or if it'll just be Man of Steel 2 with Batman as one of the bigger supporting characters.

Don’t worry. Apparently they’re finding a new replacement.

Reminds me of when they keep saying they're doing a JL movie and Flash/Wonder Woman films, nothing happens. Good Luck DC/WB.

Warner Bros. announces Batman/Superman movie for 2015
Quote:
And here’s the official press release from Warner Bros.

BURBANK, Calif., Jul 20, 2013 — On the heels of the worldwide success of “Man of Steel,” director Zack Snyder is bringing together the two greatest Super Heroes of all time–Batman and Superman–for the first time on the big screen. The announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, and Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

The current hit, “Man of Steel,” has taken in more than $630 million at the worldwide box office to date, and climbing. Along with its star, Henry Cavill, the upcoming film brings back Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane. The new Batman has yet to be cast.

Snyder is co-writing the story with David S. Goyer, who will then pen the screenplay. Production is expected to begin in 2014, with an anticipated release date in Summer 2015.

Silverman stated, “Zack Snyder is an incredibly talented filmmaker, but beyond that, he’s a fan first and he utterly gets this genre. We could not think of anyone better suited to the task of bringing these iconic Super Heroes to the screen in his own way.” Kroll added, “We are thrilled to be back in business with Zack and his team on this next movie. The success of ‘Man of Steel’ is a wonderful testament to the love and support that both fans and new audiences, worldwide, have for these characters. We are very excited to see what Zack has in store for all of us.”

Diane Nelson, President, DC Entertainment, noted, “Superman and Batman together on the big screen is a dream come true for DC fans everywhere. All of us at DC Entertainment could not be more excited for Zack’s continuing vision for the DC Universe.”

Zack Snyder, who made a surprise appearance at Comic-Con today, breaking the news to audiences there, later said, “I’m so excited to begin working again with Henry Cavill in the world we created, and I can’t wait to expand the DC Universe in this next chapter. Let’s face it, it’s beyond mythological to have Superman and our new Batman facing off, since they are the greatest Super Heroes in the world.”

The new film brings back Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder as producers. This time, Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas are serving as executive producers, along with Benjamin Melniker and Michael E. Uslan.

Thomas offered, “Whilst our ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy is complete, we have every confidence that Zack’s fresh interpretation will take the character in a new and exciting direction. His vision for Superman opened the door to a whole new universe and we can’t wait to see what Zack does with these characters.”

The film is based on Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster, and Batman characters created by Bob Kane, published by DC Entertainment.

I believe a Justice League movie was announced on six different occasions. Each time it got cancelled.

David Goyer said at the panel today, the sequel will pick up where Man of Steel left off and address the controversial ending and General Zod's death. Zack Snyder said that Harry Lennix's quote from the comics is a hint, not a firm direction the movie will go in. Superman and Batman may not be best buds in the sequel (at least initially is my guess.) Production is planned to begin in 2014 with a Summer 2015 release date.
since a few ppl on here didnt like the ending.

Please, no. DC, don't do this. Or rather do this, but get other people to do it. This will not be good, will make a ton of money, and then we're gonna get a crappy Justice League movie by these same guys. Please don't do this.

This is my line of thinking. It's the right movie to be made, but not the right people working on it. Henry Cavill is great though. He should stay.

YES YES YES!


Finally, it's really happening!

I don't know whether they're going to go with a Nolanverse Batman or a new one. Personally, I hope JGL does become Bats. That'd be kewl.

Either way, yes yes yes!

But yeah, the bat logo sucks.

I think Snyder's a decent choice at director...but Goyer really needs a co-scripter.

Comic-Con: Superman 75th Anniversary Panel Recap
Quote:
David Goyer then noted that Superman and Batman would be coming to the screen together in the recently announced 2015 film. “We aren’t sure if the title will be Batman Vs Superman or Superman Vs Batman, but they will face off.” Jim Lee noted that Superman got a raw deal in The Dark Knight Returns comic series by Frank Miller so a rematch was in order.
