Superman Vs Batman

Batman Vs Superman Movie will be Coming in 2015 In July

 Man of Steel has already made $630 million worldwide, there was very little chance that director Zack Snyder and screenwriter David Goyer wouldn’t be returning for the sequel, and last week that news was made official when the Superman Vs Batman movie was announced at Comic-Con. While the movie doesn’t have an official start or release date yet, Warner Bros. has confirmed that production will start next year and that the finished product will be hitting theaters on July 17, 2015. Snyder is developing the story alongside Goyer and while we don’t know how far along in the process they are, presumably they have at the very least started working on the first draft. 

When Warner Bros. announced at Comic-Con that they would be moving forward with a Superman/Batman movie, they didn’t include a plot synopsis telling us what the movie is about but titles for the film mentioned by Goyer suggest that the film will have the two heroes at each other’s throats. During the panel celebrating the 75th Anniversary of Superman, the screenwriter told the audience, “We’re actually not sure whether the title is Superman vs. Batman or Batman vs. Superman but yes, it’s that rematch, that combination, the two guys onscreen and that’s happening.” Combined with Harry Lennix’s aggressive “Dark Knight Returns” quote at Comic Con and the fact that Warner Bros. has registered both and and there appears to be a good amount of evidence suggesting that Superman and Batman will be enemies before they become friends. 

We've also heard that director Zack Snyder is meeting with Frank Miller to discuss the project. Specifically they're meeting to "go over the plans for the Superman film." Miller, for his part, had no idea a Batman vs. Superman movie was happening even though it was announced at Comic Con using a quote from "The Dark Knight Returns", a comic he wrote. We don't know what level of involvement Miller will really have yet, whether he's collaborating on the script or just going over a few ideas.
