Warner Bros. Announces "Superman/Batman"
CBR's coverage of Comic-Con International in San Diego continues with coverage of the massive panels in Hall H. Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures launched Saturday programming with a joint panel surveying their upcoming films, including "Godzilla" and "Seventh Son" from Legendary and "300: Rise of an Empire," "Gravity," and "The LEGO Movie" from Warner. A full panel report will follow soon, but the big news was Warner's announcement of "Superman/Batman," a live-action film directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill and a Batman to be named later.
With the panel already running over, Hardwick welcomed Zack Snyder and Henry Cavill to the stage.
"I know there's been a lot of speculation about what we're doing," Snyder said. "It is official that we're going to make another Superman movie." He teased that "there's one particular part of the film I might be able to help you out with."
Harry Lennox from "Man of Steel" joined the panel to read something. "We're not adapting this thing," Snyder said, "but it will help us tell you something."
"I want you to remember, Clark, in all the years to come, in all your most private moments, I want you to remember my hand at your throat," Lennox read, quoting Frank Miller's "Dark Knight Returns." "I want you to remember the one man who beat you."
Then, on the screen, a Superman shield within a Bat symbol. With nothing more to be said, the panel wrapped.
