[Warning: This article contains Spoilers for 'Batman: Arkham Origins.']
We may have to wait until 2016 for Warner Bros.’ continuation of the interconnected Man of Steel universe with Batman vs. Superman, but we’ll still see a slew of DC adaptations: the CW’s Arrow is going strong, with spinoff series The Flash on deck. NBC will air a television adaptation of Constantine, and Fox has Gotham, based on the early years of longtime Batman ally James Gordon.
With a full two years to go before fans can see new Batman Ben Affleck in action alongside returning Superman Henry Cavill in Batman vs. Superman, the character’s enduring popularity translates into renderings across a variety of other media, in the form of DC’s ongoing straight-to-dvd animated adventures like Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox and Son of Batman, as well as the popular, highly ...

As he gears up to shoot the pic’s sequel, the still-untitled “Batman-Superman” movie, the director told Forbes that he’s merely depicting the “real world we live in.” Snyder said that fans are clinging to the more squeaky-clean Superman as depicted by Christopher Reeve in the iconic movies, instead of the comic book version of Superman, who wreaked massive damage.
“The thing I was surprised about in response to Superman was how everyone clings to the Christopher Reeve version of Superman,” he told Forbes. “How tightly they cling to those ideas, not really the comic book version, but more the movie version. … If you really analyze the comic book version of Superman, he’s killed, he’s done all the things. I guess the rules »

Bow down, mere mortals. Superheroes are among us once more. Captain America is already on screens battling the Winter Soldier. Spider-Man will soon be back to amaze us. Then two generations of X-Men unite in Days Of Future Past, while we'll be meeting the Guardians Of The Galaxy later this summer. And that's not to mention new outings in 2015 for the Avengers and Batman and Superman (together in the same movie!) in 2016.
It's astounding to think that, only two decades ago, all we had in terms of superhero blockbusters was a Batman franchise about to descend into Joel Schumacher-inspired camp. Today, the possibilities for Hollywood actors wanting to don cape and spandex are endless – but how best to approach the gig of playing a hero who is even more super than most A-listers already assume they are?
With a little input from those who have already saved the world, »
Earlier this month, a massive superhero showdown was set when Marvel Studios announced that Captain America 3 will open against Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated sequel Batman Vs. Superman on May 6, 2016. While a lot can happen in two years, neither Marvel nor Warner Bros. are budging from this date. During a recent interview with Forbes, Batman Vs. Superman director Zack Snyder dismissed any notion of a heated rivalry or feud between Marvel Studios and Warner Bros., revealing that he is a fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
"Look, I'm a fan of the Marvel movies... and the thing that's awesome is, we make a different movie. We have a different product than them, although they both exist in sort of the superhero world, which is great. I think that those are the opportunities. That's what you get at the movies, you get a chance to go to all these different worlds. And »
Director Snyder explained to Forbes that he "subtly" mentioned the idea of Batman facing off against Superman in the film to producers.
He said: "I gotta be honest, it definitely was a thing that… after Man of Steel finished and we started talking about what would be in the next movie, I started subtly mentioning that it would be cool if he faced Batman. In the first meeting, it was like, 'Maybe Batman?'
"Maybe at the end of the second movie, some Kryptonite gets delivered to Bruce Wayne's house or something. Like in a cryptic way, that's the first time we see him. But then, once you say it out loud, »
In a new interview with Forbes, Zack Snyder talks more about the upcoming Batman vs. Superman, addresses the kind of Batman we'll see in the movie and teases that first image of the new Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) standing alongside Superman (Henry Cavill), which he says exists and is currently hanging on his office wall. On when he decided to make the Man of Steel sequel a Batman vs. Superman movie: "I gotta be honest, it definitely was a thing that… after Man of Steel finished and we started talking about what would be in the next movie, I started subtly mentioning that it would be cool if he faced Batman.

Currently at work on the still untitled Man Of Steel follow-up that will see Henry Cavill’s Superman sharing screen time with Ben Affleck as the latest incarnation of Batman, Zack Snyder took some time out to talk to Forbes about his ideas for the film and his excitement at uniting the two veteran superheroes on the live-action big screen for the first time.Naturally, since the movie is more than two years away and Warner Bros. has been very secretive about anything to do with the look of Bats or Supes, Snyder wasn’t able to share too much, lest he himself fall victim to a swiftly thrown Batarang. But he did talk up his initial reasons for deciding to add Batman into the mix. “After Man Of Steel finished and we started talking about what would be in the next movie, I started subtly mentioning that it would »
With production underway on Batman vs. Superman, we should expect to hear plenty about Warner Bros. Man of Steel sequel over the coming weeks and months (which will no doubt be music to DC fans’ ears), and to start things off director Zack Snyder has taken part in a lengthy interview with Forbes, during which he spoke in depth about the hotly-anticipated film:
On the decision to include Batman (Ben Affleck) alongside Henry Cavill’s Superman in the Man of Steel seuqel: “It definitely was a thing that… after Man of Steel finished and we started talking about what would be in the next movie, I started subtly mentioning that it would be cool if he faced Batman.

Man of Steel director Zack Snyder is getting ready to start production on what may be the biggest film of his career, Batman Vs. Superman, which brings together these comic book icons on the big screen for the first time. During a new interview with Forbes, the filmmaker revealed when and why they first started discussing bringing these two superheroes together, and what it was like seeing the holy trinity of Batman, Superman and Wonderman together on set as the stand-ins first climbed into their costumes.
"After Man of Steel finished and we started talking about what would be in the next movie, I started subtly mentioning that it would be cool if he faced Batman. In the first meeting, it was like, "Maybe Batman?" Maybe at the end of the second movie, some Kryptonite gets delivered to Bruce Wayne's house or something. Like in a cryptic way, that's the first time we see him. »
Even though Zack Snyder currently can't really say anything incredibly substantial about Batman vs. Superman (unofficial title), he can talk around it, and that's close enough for most fanboys. In a recent interview with Forbes, Snyder gave his thoughts on both characters and seeing them together on screen. Personally, the most disconcerting part of the interview is when the interviewer says, "Superman is kind of the ideal of what we’d like to be, and Batman is kind of rooted in what we are. He reflects what we are, so to speak," and Snyder replies, "Oh, 100%. And I think that’s at the heart of that, you know." I could not disagree more with that response. I think an "idealist versus pragmatist" approach is understandable, but please don't lump me in with a billionaire who treats a crime-ridden city like a playground so he can constantly work though his childhood trauma. »

While we all anxiously wait for the first image of Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot all suited up as Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, Forbes got the chance to catch up with director Zack Snyder to quiz him on the Man of Steel follow-up. When asked what led to him deciding to include the Caped Crusader, he replied: "I gotta be honest, it definitely was a thing that… after Man of Steel finished and we started talking about what would be in the next movie, I started subtly mentioning that it would be cool if he faced Batman. In the first meeting, it was like, “Maybe Batman?” Maybe at the end of the second movie, some Kryptonite gets delivered to Bruce Wayne’s house or something. Like in a cryptic way, that’s the first time we see him. But then, once you say it out loud, right? »
With Warner Bros.’ kicking off production on Batman vs. Superman in Detroit, cinematographer Larry Fong has tweeted what may just be the first behind-the-scenes image from the Man of Steel sequel. No, it’s not Batman or Wonder Woman in full costume, but rather a Panavision camera pointed towards a blurry figure in a suit. Bruce Wayne, perhaps?
So, nothing too exciting, but surely it’s only a matter of time before things start to pick up…
Batman vs. Superman is directed by Zack Snyder and sees returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent) and Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) joined by Ben Affleck (Argo) as Batman, Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) as Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg (Now You See Me) as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons (The Borgias) as Alfred Pennyworth and Holly Hunter (The Piano), Callan Mulvey (300: Rise of an »

Zimmer told Digital Spy that he will begin working on Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” follow-up once he completes the score for Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” (Nolan evidently kept the sci-fi film’s plot a secret from his longtime composer).
“We’ve already had a couple of chats, and once I finish the movie that I shall not talk about, I will probably head over to where Zack is shooting his movie and just hang out a bit and see if we can come up with any ideas,” said Zimmer, who most recently scored Oscar winner “12 Years a Slave” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”
Zimmer is no stranger to the Batman universe, having penned the music to Nolan’s “Dark Knight” trilogy. However, he »

Larry Fong, the skilled cinematographer on the 2016 release Batman Vs. Superman and other such films like 300 and Watchmen, two other Zach Snyder helmed projects, has tweeted our very first set pic from the Man Of Steel sequel, revealing a blurry figure in a business suit. There’s a lot of gossip around the net that this could be our very first look at Bruce Wayne, but frankly, it could be anyone. Still, we’re intrigued.

Having previously refused to commit one way or another, composer Hans Zimmer has now confirmed that he’s set to take a second stab at scoring the Caped Crusader after Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, revealing to Digital Spy that Zack Snyder has invited him to compose the music for the upcoming Man of Steel sequel Batman vs. Superman.
We’ve already had a couple of chats, and once I finish the movie that I shall not talk about [Christopher Nolan's Interstellar] I will probably head over to where Zack is shooting his movie and just hang out a bit and see if we can come up with any ideas,” said Zimmer, who also composed the score to Man of Steel, as well as The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Zimmer then went on to admit that he’s anxious about finding a new take on the Dark Knight for Ben Affleck’s Batman, »

After months of speculation, Man of Steel composer Hans Zimmer has confirmed that he will return to provide the score for its sequel, Batman Vs. Superman. Here's what he had to say in a recent interview with Digital Spy, where he revealed that he will start crafting music for the DC Comics superhero follow-up once he finishes work on Christopher Nolan's Interstellar.
"We've already had a couple of chats, and once I finish the movie that I shall not talk about I will probably head over to where Zack (Snyder) is shooting his movie and just hang out a bit and see if we can come up with any ideas."
Back in September, the composer revealed that he was undecided about taking on this sequel, since he will have to come up with a new Batman theme, after working on Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy. He explained »
Hans Zimmer recently told Digital Spy that he has been asked to write the score for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel follow-up, Batman vs. Superman. The Oscar-winning-composer has been Warner Brothers’ go-to guy for scoring superhero films over the last several years, having worked on the soundtracks for Snyder’s Superman reboot and Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy.
“We’ve already had a couple of chats, and once I finish the movie that I shall not talk about I will probably head over to where Zack is shooting his movie and just hang out a bit and see if we can come up with any ideas,” Zimmer said.
The composer also clarified that he hopes to come up with a new score that will stand apart from his work on Nolan’s Batman films.
“That’s my problem, that’s my dilemma. I don’t want to betray, »

With Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment holding firm on their Batman vs. Superman release date of May 6th, 2016 to open against Disney and Marvel's Captain America 3, all we can do is wait and see what each of the superhero films do as they move through development and closer to production. Zack Snyder's Man of Steel sequel already has a pretty full cast with Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck as Superman and Batman, not to mention Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, but now we have another name added to the behind-the-scenes roster with Hans Zimmer confirmed to compose the score. Zimmer was previously unsure if he should return to score the film that will see the first big screen combination of Batman and Superman, mostly because of his work on Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight franchise. Zimmer told Vulture: "Honestly, I’m just »

It looks like Hans Zimmer will return to work with Zack Snyder on scoring Batman Vs. Superman. You would think it would be a no brainier that he would back to score the sequel to Man of Steel, but he previously talked about his hesitation on doing it saying:
“Honestly, I’m just sort of grappling with that right now. Quite seriously, the thought right now is that no, I don’t want to go and take what I did with Chris and just plonk it into another movie. There isn’t one good reason to do it, and there are so many good reasons not to do it.”
I guess the composer ended up coming up with lots of good reasons to do it, because he recently confirmed with Digital Spy that he will be scoring the film after he's done with Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. Here's what he »
