Very much a business decision. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

What they should do is go all New Frontier by having Superman and Batman about to fight and just have Wonder Woman come out of nowhere to stop it. So, not only would people be getting the beginning of the World's Finest, but also the Trinity. Minds would be blown.

Okay, maybe it's just that Lois and Bruce thing that's clouding my judgment in the film's adaptation from Bruce Timm.haha

Well this has been therapeutic.lol

But Batman did the better of superman during their first encounter. Even though Superman threw Batman down, Batman threw him down first and ended it with using kryptonite on him.

I'm also excited that they will most likely start shooting early next year. Which means that set photos will be leaked. Which means that we will/might get our first look at the new Batman suit!

Is this supposed to be a sign of WB not being confident in Superman doing a sequel alone or showing the world a new Batman soon after the Nolan version?

What's interesting is that Goyer said, when talking about a sequel, that Lois and Clark will be in a "real relationship" after MOS.

Yet, I wonder, was he talking about it with Batman/Superman in mind or did things change?

I hope things didn't change since I really hope that Clark and Lois are in that committed relationship that he promised without Batman being an issue.

The last thing that I want is to see a repeat of the X-Men franchise where Batman ends up being Wolverine, Lois is Jean, and Superman is Cyclops since we all know on how that turned up.
I think the film will probably jump a year or more ahead given how much rebuilding there is to do and so I can see Lois and Clark being in a relationship at this point, I mean she knows everything about him so there is really no reason to go over old ground with their dynamic, lets go forward.

My guess is that Bruce will enter the story in a business situation with Lex who has funded the rebuilding of Metropolis and things will move from there with Lois perhaps interviewing him and having a per-concieved notion that he's an arrogant playboy but instead simply finds him a better guy than she'd imagined, nothing more. A love triangle would be redundant as everyone knows Clark and Lois are where it's at, Bruce will always be alone due to his demons.

My biggest fear is that the general public won't cling to and accept the new Batman.

Or just release a pic of what the suit would look like on film before anyone else does. Isn't that what they did with MOS?

Right now, I am not happy with it.

I feel like they should have let Superman have at least his second movie on his own without forcing their golden boy down the throat of MoS fans (yes, I am bitter right now, LOL)!

I was really looking forward to deepening the whole mythos and storylines and relationships that were started in MoS. Putting Batman/Bruce Wayne in there feels like a distraction. Batman was allowed his multitude of movies without Superman being shoved in there. How come not Superman?

Right now, I'm just bitter over it. They shouldn't call it a MoS sequel then. Because it's really not.

Ugh! Knowing these people they will cast Keira Knightley of Charlize Theron as Lana. If Lois looks like Amy Adams then no to Lana and Diana.

As for the announcement, I'm just happy there is going to be a sequel, Batman can jump in all he wants as long as it is still Superman's story. Seeing as how they are calling it a Superman film, they have the same cast and same writers, and they said issues in MOS will be addressed, I'm content that this is still Superman's story.

I have mixed thoughts on how they're going to pull this off but until i hear more from the filmmakers, I'll just be cautiously optimistic.
I can understand how people who didn't like MOS might not like this news, I've seen some Batman fans nervous at Snyder being the helm of the new incarnation of the character.
Yeah this pretty much sums up my feelings about all this. The only thing I would add is that I hope that Batman being in the movie doesn't turn it from a Man of Steel movie into a World's Finest movie. I'd rather have a Man of Steel sequel followed by a World's Finest movie either in the same year or the year after. I really feel Man of Steel deserves it's own standalone sequel.

I distinctly remember Superman's own voice actor saying in an interview about the World's Finest movie that Superman "wasn't the smartest". Why shouldn't he be smart? I think he should at least be smarter than average. I just think they need someone really smart to write these 2 characters without insulting their and our intelligence. I don't get intelligence from Goyer or Snyder.

They do this with tact. How can they have a World's finest when Superman is not introduced to the World yet? No one knows that his name is Superman. I am really not sure what the story will be like.

The Joker may be insane, but he is also a genius. His greatest weapon is his unpredictability. Batman/Superman/and Lex all got outsmarted by Joker. In fact, Joker could probably pose a serious threat to almost EVERY DCU hero.

Please no Batman cuckolding of Superman when it comes to Lois. That's one in a long line of sins Timmverse Supes/Bats that is just not smart to bring to a wider audience.

Agreed; that's another major issue that I had.

Even Snyder said it himself that Superman needed another film to be better established (and yet he goes about doing this.lol)

MOS 2 was supposed to further establish Superman to the world, not send him teaming up with Batman right away.

Really, I liked Timm's take on the Bruce/Clark relationship. They were very different and disagreed frequently, but they were also friends who respected each other greatly.

And yet Bruce always kept a piece of kryptonite in his cave and his pocket for.."insurance" as he worded it to Hawkgirl.lol, along with dating the girl that he knew Clark liked. With friends like that, who needs the Joker?lol

That was the most forced relationship I have ever seen in a CBM. One moment he loves Thalia the next it's all about Selina.

Lol, That's Nolan's Batman world though, much like Miller's it has it's own beginning, middle and end...plus you don't know that Bruce is eyeing up Poison Ivy in that pic.

I loved that first encounter. I wish they could use the "I knew you were crazy. I didn't think you were stupid." line but that's probably impossible if they use an early in his career Batman whom everyone thinks is an urban myth. One can dream though

Maybe Snyder realizes that for something like a franchise character film as opposed to personal projects like SUCKER PUNCH () he has to defer to the wishes of WB in the end? Maybe?

Agreed; these types of icons should never be placed in that type of situation. Which is why i hope there isn't a love triangle here...or between Steve/Black Widow/Bucky in the Winter Soldier as well.haha
