The release date for MOS2 will be July 17, 2015.

It's understandable this new casting news overwhelmed the news about the release day.

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

I would like to say I will not see this movie now, but I know I probably will. Although maybe not--I still have not seen Argo and watched about ten minutes of his recent SNL appearance. As an actor, he is vapid and has had more disasters than successes. His brother would have been a better choice (and that is not a compliment to his brother).

Interesting choice.

Too bad he couldn't direct instead of Snyder.

I don't understand why people can so easily accept Lex Luthor as a credible threat to Superman but then are so incredulous at the idea that Batman can play a useful role in a team-up film. They're both depicted as geniuses who use their intellect and the technological/logistical resources afforded by their wealth to excel in a world of superpowered beings, and Batman has the additional assets of personal drive and extensive training on top of that. If you can accept Luthor as a viable bad guy in Superman's universe, then you should be able to accept Batman as a viable good guy.
It's the bat suit that bothers me.

Superman being an alien wearing a cape doesn't bother me. Lex Luthor being a genius that finds a way to be an enemy to Superman doesn't bother me. Bruce Wayne using his resources to help Superman doesn't bother me. Bruce Wayne dressing up like a bat to help Superman save the world bothers me. Batman works all dressed up in Gotham, striking terror in the heart of his enemies and such. Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent work. Superman and Batman is strange.

I can hear General Zod say : "Why is that human dressed like a bat?"

Wait, WHAT??!?

I'm not an Affleck hater by any means, but... I'm having an awfully hard time seeing him as Batman at the moment...

I'm also surprised they went with a big name actor. They should have went more with an unknown like Cavill was for Superman, less likely to steal the spotlight from Superman.

It's not like you NEED a super big actor to play Batman. The characters sells itself.

But there are more than forty years of successful comic book stories that prove that Batman and Superman can be conceptually cool together.
