Interesting. Will they be using the Nolan Batman continuity, with a new actor, or set up something else? Seems strange to jump in with a new continuity for Batman without setting it up in its own story, but at the same time the Nolanverse really doesn't have room for a magic flying alien.

Really? The Tim Burton Batman movie did just fine jumping in to the Batman story.

I'm kinda tired of the dependency on origin stories for superheroes in Hollywood. The Amazing Spider-Man was a waste of time, I don't want a Batman version of that. Give us a new continuity and just skip to when he's Batman.

No mention of Nolan there. Is he finally moving on from the superhero genre?

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

Whatever they do, I'm sure it'll all fit together. I know folks are worried how they'll reconcile Superman and Batman in the same universe but considering that they've been doing that in comics since the 1940s, I'm not too concerned about that. All I want is a rip-roaring adventure that requires the Man of Steel and the World's Greatest Detective to join forces, defeat evil, and save the day.

You know that's not what I meant. Burton established his version of Batman in a Batman movie. This is a new version of Batman, showing up inside an already established Superman continuity and sharing the screen with already-established Superman actors. It's not something they've done before.

I don't see why he should be involved anymore. It's not his batman franchise anymore.

He only pushed forward ideas for "Man of Steel" and then stepped aside.

I don't get why they'd need to build it up. Everybody who would ever go see this movie, already knows that Batman is a millionaire who's parents died, that fights crime. I genuinely don't get what you mean. The audience don't need 2 hours of a solo-Batman movie reboot showing his training for the first time.. again, him meeting Gordon for the first time.. again, etc.

True, and to be perfectly honest, I'd be happy to see him move onto other pastures. I'm fine with him sticking to blockbusters (as much as I enjoy his early thrillers), but I think he's said what he has to say on the subject of superheroes and could better apply his talents elsewhere. Interstellar should be a good place to start.

Not a big fan of the Snyder movie but this seems preferable to another Batman reboot and a good way to move towards a possible JLA film.

I hope the movie is more imaginative than the logo.

^"Help?" Jor-El, Lois, Col. Hardy, and Professor Hamilton were the true heroes of MoS. Superman was their sidekick and errand boy. He went through the whole movie doing what other people instructed him to do -- Jonathan, Jor-El, some random priest, even Zod. He didn't exactly demonstrate a lot of skill at independent decision-making. If he can't outgrow that, then he's definitely going to need Batman to do his thinking for him.
Right...Superman didn't single-handedly destroy the world engine over the Indian Ocean...he didn't stop Zod...he didn't provide the ship that the military used to take care of Zod's ship...nor did he provide the key with the AI of Jor-El, who's been dead for 33 years.

Why not? The whole premise of MOS was that this was a gritty, realistic world before Superman showed up. There was no room for Superman in the Batman stories that Nolan told, but now that they've been told, the alien has arrived and the world has changed.

You could just as easily say that there was no room for Thor and an alien invasion in Iron Man's universe...but it happened.

According to io9 Harry Lennix joined Snyder onstage for the annoucement and read the following dialogue:

I want you to remember, Clark… in all the years to come… in your most private moments… I want you to remember… my hand… at your throat… I want… you to remember… the one man who beat you.
It's from The Dark Knight Returns. Snyder said the movie won't be an adaptation of it, but it'll be inspired by it.
That bit does not encourage me.
