Man Of Steel Sequel Announced, With The Addition Of Batman

Superman is coming back and he’ll have a caped co-star.

“Man of Steel” director Zack Snyder announced Saturday at San Diego’s Comic-Con that he was making another Superman film and that it will include Batman — the first time the two superheroes will be united on the big screen.

He declined to reveal many details, saying the script is just being written. He then invited an actor onstage to read a passage to hint at the story line.

“I am the man who beat you,” read Harry Lennox, before an image of the Superman logo, backed by the Batman symbol, flashed on the screen.

Warner Bros. then confirmed the first-ever pairing in a statement.

Snyder reimagined Superman in his June blockbuster “Man of Steel,” starring Henry Cavill and Amy Adams, which has grossed more than $630 million worldwide.
