Batman/Superman Movie Announced

Today, Zack Snyder took to the Warner Bros. ComicCon  panel to announce a forthcoming DC Comics project, with a slight twist. Not only did he announce that there was a new Superman movie in the works, but he also announced that the film would star The Caped Crusader- Batman. This superhero duo should please fans if it is executed correctly, and the audience at the ComicCon panel went wild, with a reaction unlike any other. 

The plot of the Snyder's latest epic shall be lightly based upon the story of The Dark Knight Returns, a graphic novel which features the two characters. Although Snyder did appear to stress that this was not a direct adaption. Henry Cavill is almost certain to return to the shoes of Superman, however there was no mention whatsoever of Joseph Gordon-Levitt or Christian Bale stepping into the role of Batman. Bale previously ruled out a return to the character whilst speaking to, he told them, "We were incredibly fortunate to get to make three (films). That's enough. Let's not get greedy." This suggests that Bale didn't want a future series of films, only inspired by the capital which they produce to ruin the image of the Batman trilogy which Christopher Nolan had created. Instead Bale wishes to see other actors take the place of Batman and represent the character in their own way, after saying to, "It's a torch that should be handed from one actor to another".

This lightly comic-book inspired movie is set to reach cinemas in 2015, however over the next year, the DC Universe will stay quiet, except for the release of a second series of Arrow, which was recently renewed for a second series by CW.
