Marvel’s Comic-Con panel isn’t until tonight, but Warner Bros. may have just won Comic-Con with their HUGE announcement today.
Their two greatest heroes, Batman and Superman, will be heading to the big screen together in the summer of 2015. Zack Snyder will return to direct with a script by Man of Steel writer David S. Goyer. Christopher Nolan will serve as executive producer and presumably head up the entire project. Henry Cavill will return as Superman and a search will begin for a new Batman.
Snyder surprised everyone by showing up at the Comic-Con panel and had an excerpt from The Dark Knight Returns read and the Superman logo was shown on screen then a new Batman logo appeared behind it.
On the heels of this big event, it is also being rumored that Warner is prepping a Flash movie for 2016 which will lead into a 2017 Justice League film.
