WORLD'S FINEST: Warners Officially Announce Superman/Batman Movie

Move over 'Dynamic Duo', the world is about to be completely re-schooled in 'Hollywood cool' as Warner Bros have announced today a live action Superman/Batman film, directed by Zack Snyder.

Set for 2015, Henry Cavill will reprise his stunning efforts as the Man of Steel, with Batman to be named later (holding out hope there is still time for me to get my audition tape in).

While Warner's admitted they are not adapting Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns, they did quote one of its most memorable moments; "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."

That's got to prove they are on the right track already. Rumours are flying in Superman/Batman is the next step on Warners road to a Justice League movie set for 2017. Between here and there, The Flash will reportedly race into theatres in 2016, showing all new-generations that 'faster than a speeding bullet' is still too slow for some.

 What do you think? 


  1. I told my kids about the Superman/Batman movie, and the first thing they said was "Awesome...wait. That guy that makes Batman sound weird isn't going to play him again, right? You told us he was done."
    I really had no idea they didn't like Christian Bale. So I asked them about that. Apparently they liked the movies fine, but every time Bale talked as "Batman" they had to stifle the urge to giggle. My middle daughter told me they should just get the guy who does Batman in the cartoon.
    It's kind of the same problem they have every time there's a new Joker. They just never actually believe it's the Joker. He might be "fine" but never "good enough".
    I think I've doomed them to a life of disappointment.
    Also, they are way harsher than I am. I told them that. They said I just lowered my standards.
    Why do we teach kids to talk?

  2. Ha why indeed Random! I always thought Kevin Conroy would play a great real life Two-Face for some reason.. imagine the voice of Batman on Dent. Talk about split personalities!

    Your kids are right though, as voices go non-vompare. I bet even telemarketers that ring Kevin's house can testify to that!

  3. Despite being a splendid voice actor, Ive never took Conroy seriously since his character kissed Steven Carrington on 'Dynasty' all those years ago!

  4. That's going back a bit Karl! I remember the theme tune to that show but not much else. That's my memory for ya though! Thanks for the comments!
