Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

I would love it if the film featured the John Blake Batman and was thus a sequel to both The Dark Knight Rises and Man of Steel.
So would I. Even if that were to happen, would general audiences ever buy someone other than Bruce Wayne as Batman? Which is why I don't think I'll ever see a live-action Batman Beyond film.
I'd like to think audiences could accept a non-Bruce Wayne Batman. Heck, the most recent film showed Bruce Wayne handing off the mask to someone else.

On the other hand, Warners almost certainly wants Bruce Wayne in a Superman/Batman film because 1) this is the first time such a film has happened and 2) Bruce Wayne is who everyone on the street knows.

I'll be very curious if Warners tries to get Bale back (and for how much), even if it's just for a one-off film.
