At the Warner Brothers panel at Comic Con, it was announced that the next Superman Movie, will feature a team up with Batman, the Dark Knight. The image below was seen at the panel. Will this be the logo for the new film? 

Official Press Release from Warner Brothers:

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.

 Well...this will either be really good or really bad

 Wow reading a live blog from the panel this seemed to be very last minute....almost rushed and not thought out. All they did was have Snyder read a quote from The Dark Knight Returns and show the logo by contrast read how Whedon teased A2 Age of Ultron.

Well they have 2 years to get what matters right but WB still seems scared of committing to more than 1 film at a time.

Sounds  alright 2 years for "the Super Meet or Team up . Interesting about  casting a new Batman , , just hope it isn't Justin Timberlake .

I'm sorry but I'm not a fan of a supes vs batman.  This feels more like a cash grab and a lead into a justice league though I agree with Wise, they are scared of committing to more than one film at a time.  Man of steel was enjoyable film but it's tough to top the fight scene in that movie.  Even if you brought in doomsday it would basically be more of the same so I guess bats was the only way to go?

Fuck ya!

 Not excited about this at all. Something must be wrong with me or I am getting saturated. Mmm....

 Fanboy haters unite!  I can't wait!

I was excited about this until I saw it was Snyder. The guy can't do characters for squat. Action? Yes. Characters? Nope.

 I would've liked to have seen another Solo MoS before they did this but MoS vs Bats?  Yeah buddy!

DC committing more than one film.  They got MoS/Bats, Flash and JL.  They just ain't doing 2 a year.
