‘Batman / Superman’ Live Action Movie Being Secretly Developed at Warner Bros.

Warner Bros. reportedly developing live-action Batman/Superman movie Warner Bros. currently has several DC Comics superhero movies in development such as The Flash and Justice League of America. The studio is reportedly developing a new, untitled adventure which would pair up Batman and Superman in a live-action big screen adventure.

The studio is reportedly trying to convince Christian Bale to return in one last performance as Bruce Wayne, while the new Man of Steel, Henry Cavill, will star as Superman. If Christian Bale declines to return, the studio will seek out a new actor to portray Batman.

It is said that two separate versions are being crafted, one where Batman mentors an up-and-coming Superman, and another where Superman mentors Batman. It isn't known if there are screenwriters attached at this time.

The project is in very early stages of development, and they still plan on moving forward with The Flash and Justice League of America before this untitled endeavor. Warner Bros. also plans on rebooting the Batman franchise after The Dark Knight Rises, which will be the last adventure with star Christian Bale and director Christopher Nolan.

    The JLA flick should come after this one imo. Bale should hang around for this.

                    Too bad they haven't managed to get a Wonder Woman project off the ground. A Trinity movie would be pretty rad. Who knows, maybe Nicholas Winding Refn will get that Christina Hendricks Wonder Woman movie he's been wanting and we'll get a proper DC film universe.

                      I just realized something here just now, which is that now that this article has mentioned about Warner Bros studios secretly making this Batman/Superman movie, well now it isn't so secret any more now is it ? Considering that this article has just revealed it !

                              Nolans series is too far off his own, but to reboot that soon is Ludicrous and i want WARNER BROS. to burn for that!

                                For the next decade or so, I have no interest in any Batman film or any kind of Batman reboot without the heavy involvement of Chris Nolan.

                                Pass.

                                    I'm sorry but this can happen if you don't believe it then just take a look at the trailer me and my friend made.

                                      Its because Nolan nor Bale intend to continue the franchise in their lead roles, and Nolan's Batman story was always intended as a beginning fall and rise story arc, and that's all it was ever intended to be.

                                        @Fry-3000 the green lantern was a way better film than i expected being a green lantern fan i was very pleased with the final product although there was a little cheesiness to it. it was still an overall great film and flash will probabaly be just as good.
