According to reports from The Hollywood Reporter, a Superman/Batman team-up movie is slated for 2015, followed by The Flash in 2016 and Justice League in 2017.
Man of Steel director Zack Snyder is said to direct Superman/Batman, with a script from The Dark Knight Trilogy screenwriter David S. Goyer. The film will act as a sequel to Man of Steel and springboard for WB’s DCU world-building.
This is the first indication of a game plan on Warner Bros.’ part to build a cinematic universe like Marvel’s, save for the announcement of the Justice League movie last year.Anthony Couto is a Comics Editor for Analog Addiction where he reviews weekly releases and writes columns.
