I can't see them casting someone in their mid to late forties - surely going to be early thirties like Superman.
I was going to say the same thing, but then I remembered Robert Downey, Jr. was already in his 40s when he first played Iron Man. And contrasting the young, learning Superman with a more seasoned Batman has potential. So I agree it's more likely they'll go for early 30s, but I'm not completely ruling out the alternative.
Stark has always been middle aged though. Plus the character doesn't need to be in perfect physical shape, since he drives a high tech armor.

Batman needs to be relatively young, unless they want to go more Batman Beyond old mentor role. But I doubt the WB will want that since it is in their best interests to get another younger actor to start another solo Batman franchise.

What would be the point in Bale? WB must want this movie to set up the new Batman franchise and the Justice League movie so re-cast because Bale is not going to be part of any of that.
As I said earlier, if Bale would agree to appear in Superman vs. Batman and a couple of Justice League films I think they'd delay a rebooted Batman solo series until some years down the line. But Bale likely won't agree to it, so it'll be a rebooted Batman.

It's not about the money, it's about whether Bale even wants to do another Batman movie or not.
I agree. I don't think he's interested at all....and he would cost too much.

See? WB has already done a masterful job of setting expectations low.

And RDJ costs too much as well.

Olyphant as Batman? Nooo. I mean, I love the guy on Justified, but he's no Batman.

Snyder didn't actually refer to Batman by name at all. The press release said they have yet to cast the new Batman. There's no information beyond that so far.
I wasn't there, but this is what I read:

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.”

What they're trying to set up is a DC Universe franchise, and there's no way they'd do that without Batman being an ongoing part of it.

The quote from Snyder about a new Batman is from the press release. Here's the video of the announcement at the Comic-Con panel:

I'd dare say that if they seriously planned to start a new Batman franchise, introducing their new Batman in a Superman film would be problematic at best...but it works just fine if they only plan to use Batman in team movies for the time being.
At the start of the year, I read that WB were planning to use the JLA movie to introduce their new Batman. If that story did reflect their thinking at that time, it looks to me like they've just readjusted their plan so as to use the Supes/Bats film to do so instead.

RDJ was paid 50 million for the first Avengers, and will like get more for the sequels. But Marvel Studios apparently thinks he is worth the investment since they just signed him for two sequels.

Since Marvel Studios has the massive Disney empire backing them, money shouldn't be an issue for them.

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

I'm sure Marvel and Disney alike grit their teeth at giving RDJ deals as rich as that - RDJ has said as much - but he's too important to their continued box office success not to do so.

Man of Steel was one of the worst movies I have ever seen. I have a hard time believing even Batman could make this good.

So they are going to be enemy's? I still don't get how that works, but I understand there is a precedent for it from the older comics, correct? Could someone who knows that story shed a little light on the dynamics of their embattled interactions together?


Can we talk about the new logo for a minute, please. Anyone else notice anything strange about the the bat logo...

Here it is as unveiled at comic con. http://oyster.ignimgs.com/wordpress/...-logo-SDCC.jpg

This new bat logo most closely resembles the following version.

http://imjustcreative.com/wp-content...tim-burton.jpg

That is NOT a Burton/Schmacher era logo. Could they be 'retro-booting' this Batman back to a comic version, prior to the Burton era?

Too bad for you. This movie will have the same writers as MoS.
