Snyder unveiled the film’s logo during the presentation:
“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,” Snyder said. “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.”
Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are set to produce, and Christopher Nolan, Benjamin Melniker, Emma Thomas and Michael E. Uslan are serving as executive producers, per Variety.
The project looks like a move on the part of WB and DC Comics to bring more of their titans in the same frames — as Marvel did with The Avengers — ultimately, perhaps, for a potentialJustice League movie in 2017. Snyder said that Batman and Superman’s relationship from Frank Miller’s 1980s comic The Dark Knight Returns will inform aspects of the new duo.
The Los Angeles Times first reported the announcement early Saturday morning.
