Many fans in Comic-Con’s Hall H were stunned at Saturday’s big announcement that Batman and Superman will be appearing together in the sequel to Man of Steel. Now, there are more details surfacing about the possible title of the film, which may be called Batman vs Superman.
At a Superman anniversary panel, writer David S. Goyer, said:
“So over in Hall H at the Warner Bros., I guess most people know now, at the end of the Warner Bros. panel Zack came out and he brought Harry Lennix, who plays General Swanwick in Man of Steel and we –- actually, Harry read a bit from [The Dark Knight Returns] and so the next film we’re making, we’re already in pre-production, comes out in summer of 2015. We’re actually not sure whether the title is Superman vs. Batman or Batman vs. Superman but yes, it’s –- that rematch, that combination, the two guys onscreen and that’s happening.”
Batman appearing before Superman? As it turns out, Warner Bros owns the domain names SupermanVsBatman.com and BatmanVsSuperman.com, and BatmanVsSupermanMovie.com. We will have to wait and see how the actual title of the film plays out.
Whatever the title, the sequel will be directed by Zack Snyder, with Snyder and Goyer penning the script. Batman has not yet been cast, but Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane and Henry Cavill will be returning to reprise their Man of Steel roles.
Look for the movie in theaters sometime in 2015. In case you missed it, you can check out the video of the epic Comic-Con announcement below.
