Oh Warner... so far you only managed to get ONE superhero done successfully, and that trilogy is over. All other recent attempts at DC heroes have failed. And now you want to pack all of them into one movie? Forget it.

They're not thinking about that. They're thinking about all of the money that The Avengers made and assuming that they can replicate that success, while forgetting what Marvel had to do first in order to create it.

I think they know what Marvel had to do and have found that they're not up to the task...so they're going for broke.

Can't wait for the announcement of yet another Batman, Superman and Whateverman reboot in two years. Getting the ever so exciting origin stories all over again.

It could be that they'll fit very well within the context of the story. I'm guessing that they'll be going for an angle of Superman's existence having let the genie out of the bottle, and it's an angle that they want to get out of the way in this film to pave the way for the big team film.
Not sure what Supes' emergence has to do with an alien ring latching on to a human (and why wouldn't it go for Kal-El, anyway?), but, okay...

Too lazy to link it but the Batman on Film site, generally reliable in the past, is dismissing the Denzil-for-GL rumour.

Perhaps the presence of a Kryptonian and other powerful superhumans on Earth causes he Corps to pay more attention to the planet. To that end, they replace Ryan Reynolds with someone more badass.

Because Hal Jordan is closest in proximity who has the will power and ability to overcome great fear! Ryan Reynolds was always wrong for Hal. Hal is a cocky pilot with attitude. After seeing The Way Way Back and Moon, I think Sam Rockwell would make a great Hal Jordan.

Dwayne Johnson isn't the first actor I'd think of for GL but at least he brings some charisma to the role. I wonder how large his part would be. It's a pretty crowded movie already.

Well, no more crowded than the average X-Men movie.

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

What about Dwayne as Kilowogg?

Just imagine he Rock screaming about what he's going to do to all the Poozers in his kitchen.

If Rocket Raccoon goes through the roof, that will trip the need for Ch'p or Bdg to be slotted in somehow.
