Man I wish I was at Comic-Con right now to have see the combined logos (updated, image below) and hear the announcement that the follow up to Man of Steel will not be a solo Superman, nor will it be the Justice League. It will be Superman and Batman!!!
When you think about it, it kind of makes sense. They can use it as a test bed and a build towards the Juice League film. I was hoping for another solo Superman outing first as there is still lots of his story to tell, but I guess Warner doesn’t have much time to get meatier projects out there to stand against Avengers 2.
Zack Snyder will co-write the story with David S. Goyer, who was also involved with the Dark Knight films with Christopher Nolan. Nolan will also produce the next film. Which apparently is already is pre-production.
No name has been announced for the role of Batman, but it is unlikely that it will be Christian Bale. But Henry Cavill will be playing Superman, confirming that they will be looping in the current Man of Steel franchise into the Justice League rather than keeping them separate.
