Actually MOS is getting a sequel, it jsut won't come out for a while but it is on the list of Warner's upcoming comic book based movies along with a solo Batman movie.
The thinking though is that it would have gotten a direct sequel right away instead of a Batman team-up if it had been more successful.
It was in the works not long after they finished MOS according the Wiki page for Supeman V Batman.

"... after Man of Steel finished and we started talking about what would be in the next movie, I started subtly mentioning that it would be cool if he faced Batman... You're in a story meeting talking about, like, who should [Superman] fight if he fought this giant alien threat Zod who was basically his equal physically, from his planet, fighting on our turf... You know, who to fight next?... But I'm not gonna say at all that when I took the job to do Man of Steel that I did it in a subversive way to get to Batman. I really believe that only after contemplating who could face [Superman] did Batman come into the picture."

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

Here's more from that interview...

I started subtly mentioning that it would be cool if he faced Batman. In the first meeting, it was like, “Maybe Batman?” Maybe at the end of the second movie, some Kryptonite gets delivered to Bruce Wayne’s house or something. Like in a cryptic way, that’s the first time we see him.
Maybe they did think of this early on but the answer he gave about what was next is all over the place and noncommittal.

Yeah probably. Although it's also very clear that WB is desperate to get started on Justice League and their own team-up movies, so it's very possible that they would have pushed to include Batman even if MOS made a zillion dollars at the box office (the only difference would be that Batman's name probably wouldn't have been in the title).

I mean, whether it was called MOS2 or BvS, they were obviously going to start pushing forward their DC shared universe in the next movie.
Well WB has wanted a Batman Superman film for awhile. They canned the original Batman/Superman film back in 08 when they decided not to make a sequel to Superman Returns. The decision coming after TDK and Iron Man 1 hit at the box office. The plan was:
Batman Begins in 05
Superman Returns in 06
The Dark Knight in 08
The Man of Steel in 09 (Christmas)
Batman/Superman in 2012


Now that WB has MOS and were satisfied with the BO and feedback. They probably have no issue streamrolling a Batman v Superman film at us next. Since there are no plans to do ANOTHER Batman reboot so soon.

It's clear I think that they had Batman in mind, but Warner Brothers was obviously spurred by the success of the Avengers movie andd needed to introduce as many heroes as possible in one movie before they made the JLA movie.

Interesting. Were they going to do a movie with Routh and Bale?

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

I'm sure they would have liked to, but I seriously doubt Bale would have been up for it.

And the Nolan Batman movies are even less compatible with SR than they would have been with MOS, so I have to wonder just how likely any of that really was.

Yes, that was the plan. Idk how it would've worked though. You can read what Bryan Singer's MOS plan was here.

Although earlier this year, Singer told Empire Magazine Darkseid was his planned villain.

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

^ I read the outline in that first link a while back. It sounds great as a Superman movie but I agree that it would have been hard to reconcile with the first two Nolan films. What they're doing now is shaping up better.

I could see Man of Steel fitting in with Nolan's movies though. The trilogy happens, then an alien threat shows up? It works, though it does undermine the ending of Rises.

Another image of Tao Okamoto


Rumor is she is playing Mercy Graves; Lex Luthor's bodyguard. But it would be SO MUCH BETTER if she was cast as Kimiyo Hoshi/Doctor Light II.




I mean Batman v Superman is already building toward Justice League. Might as well throw in Dr Light too. It's great for female representation and diversity (since Kimiyo is Japanese in the comics as well).

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

Of course Snyder is going to say including Batman in the sequel was the plan all along. Do you really think he'd say, "Uhh, we just included him because WB wanted to make more money"?

I'm fine with adding in another female superhero, but I think there are probably much better choices out there.

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

Filling the JL roster with female superheroes, off the top of my head:

Vixen
Zatanna
Dr. Light II
Element Woman
Stargirl
Black Canary
Hawkgirl

Dr. Light and Zatanna would be the biggest 2 I'd want to see in a JLA movie.

They could save Supergirl for the actual sequel.
