So would I. Even if that were to happen, would general audiences ever buy someone other than Bruce Wayne as Batman? Which is why I don't think I'll ever see a live-action Batman Beyond film.
Although TDKR sets up a hypothetical Batman Beyond movie pretty well, with Blake in the McGinnis role...
Honestly, if we're finally getting a Superman/Batman movie, I think it needs to be Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne. That's what people are going to want to see.

There's a reason that STAR TREK: GENERATIONS didn't feature the long-awaited meeting between Captains Picard and Sulu!
Yeah, I'm not really seeing Blake as Batman in a Superman/Batman team-up.

I was just wishfully thinking of a hypothetical 4th Nolanverse film which will never happen.

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

Besides The Dark Knight Returns, there's another Batman/Superman crossover that Snyder and Goyer should pilfer from. And, interestingly enough, DC is reprinting it this fall. That would be 1989's Dark Knight Over Metropolis.

The story is a pretty trivial murder mystery that brings Batman to Metropolis. The important thing about the story is the conclusion, where Superman gives Batman Luthor's Kryptonite Ring because, and I'm quoting this from some very old memories, Superman wants the power to kill him "in the hands of the one man I can trust."

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

My guess is that Batman and Lex Luthor will be allied for a while in seeing Superman as a potential threat to mankind.

Anyway, I'd be a lot happier with this news if it weren't from Snyder and Goyer. Cavill as Superman, I love. But MoS got Superman horribly wrong in many ways, and the gratuitous and shallow excess of its final act turned me off of ever wanting to see a Snyder movie again. I'll be rather wary of this one as a result, which is a terrible shame, because I love the idea of a World's Finest movie.
Agreed. Covered all of my concerns about this team-up film.

They can always do a Nolanverse comic featuring Blake.

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

Some quotes from David Goyer:

"We don't know what we're going to call it yet — 'Superman vs. Batman,' 'Batman vs. Superman,' — but those two guys on screen, that's happening."

"To a certain extent, Superman, cinematically, hadn't been reinvented since the Donner films. We will be dealing with it in the coming film. He's not fully formed in [Man of Steel]. He will have to deal with the repercussions in the next film."

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

Like someone else said up thread, I have a feeling this will start off with them fighting, but in the end they'll come together to fight a bigger threat, possibly Lex?
I loved MOS, and I'm very intrigued by this. It will be interesting to see how they approach Batman.
I wonder if this be a regular thing, with new characters introduced in multiple MoS sequels before Clark brings them all together for a JL movie?

Superman versus Batman? Are they kidding? No. Not liking this idea at all.

Oh, please. It's a time-honored comic-book tradition for superheros to clash at first before teaming up against a common foe.

Remember Thor and Iron Man and Captain America knocking each other around in THE AVENGERS, and the Hulk taking on Thor and Black Widow later on? And Hawkeye fighting everyone for most of the movie?

This has been going on in comics since the Human Torch first fought the Sub-Mariner back in the Golden Age . . . .

But the title of the movie presented them as a team. This and the Miller quote about boots on necks doesn't give the right vibe.

Heck, why give a merged-symbol logo if they're supposed to be fighting? Shouldn't they be head-to-head or something?
