SDCC 2013: WB reveals plans for Batman/Superman film

As the Warner Bros. panel was coming to a close in Hall H this year at the San Diego Comic-Con, Zack Snyder took to the podium in order to thank fans for making “Man of Steel” a Summer blockbuster. He followed it up with the revelation that the studio would be making a followup to the Superman film.

Without going into detail, he invited actor Harry Lennix up to the stage to read a passage. As the lights dimmed, Lennix began to read:

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. I want you to remember the one man who beat you.

To many, those words didn’t mean much. But to the hardcore Batman and Superman fans, they know this as a quote from one of the most popular graphic novels in DC history, “The Dark Knight Returns”.

For those who weren’t already screaming in excitement by the passage alone, the screen lit up with a combined Batman and Superman logo and the rest of the 6,500 people went wild with the though of the 2 biggest superheroes being put together for one giant film.

With past talks of a Justice League film, we can only guess that this will bridge the gap to something bigger, but for now, with little known about the project, we can only geek out at speculation as to who will play The Dark Knight (as Christian Bale said he would not reprise his role as Batman in another film).

What are your guesses?
