During its San Diego Comic Con panel, Warner Bros. confirmed the rumors that Man of Steel will get a sequel featuring the Dark Knight. The Hollywood Reporter broke a story on the potential DC line up, detailing a plan that only days prior hadn’t looked too solid. Read on for further details.
Zack Snyder came on stage at the end of the Warner Brothers panel to give the announcement, and enjoyed keeping the crowd on pins and needles for as long as he could. Here is what he had to say:
Man of Steel will get a sequel featuring Superman and Batman together, though it looks like they may be enemies this time around; the quote given at the panel by Harry Lennix was, “I want you to remember, Clark, in all the years to come. In all your private moments. In all the years to come, my hand at your throat. I want you to remember, the one man who beat you.” A combination Superman/Batman logo flashed at the end of the panel.
It has not been announced who will portray Batman in the new film or who will be directing.
