Is BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN Actually JUSTICE LEAGUE? Not So Fast...

A couple of days ago, WB producer Daniel Alter sent out a tweet that led many to believe that the untitled Man of Steel sequel is not a Batman vs Superman (as we were told) but actually a Justice League movie. But that's not the full story, hit the jump to find out more.

Warner Brothers' next DC project, tentatively named Batman vs Superman, has had many fans speculating recently that it is not a Batman vs Superman movie but in fact is actually a cover up for a Justice League movie. With the addition of Wonder Woman, rumors of Doomsday (a villain that one would assume would be used for a Superman or Justice League film), The Flash, and Nightwing, along with Green Lantern surfacing as well. You can't blame anyone for at least thinking that it could be a possibility. But the important thing to remember is that those are rumors, and most will likely turn out to be false. But, what added much more speculation to that was when Daniel Alter, a Warner Brothers' producer, sent out this tweet a couple of days ago:


Alter has also claimed multiple things regarding his film, including saying Batman would be "tired", along with no longer speaking to Robin, Wonder Woman will be a part of the film, and Doomsday will appear. Now, what he said about Batman was already confirmed, and let's not forget he has said he is not affiliated with this project in the least, but is just tweeting his speculations or things he may have heard. Now, if this is not enough, our very own nailbiter111 approached Mr. Alter on Twitter, and this is how things played out:


So there you have it; this appears to just be his "wishful thinking" and it seems best to wait for an official announcements from Warner Brothers. This DOES NOT confirm Batman vs Superman is Justice League. Now, that doesn't completely rule out the theory that this is Justice League, as anything could happen, but that may be "wishful thinking". With filming set to commence next month, some announcements will come soon enough! What are your thoughts on this intense speculation? Sound off below!

I'm sorry you put so much effort into this, but the original article was deleted for a reason. However, because of the effort you put into this, I can change it to an editorial instead of deleting. Your call.
McNyagano - 1/10/2014, 1:26 PM
So this is why my original article was deleted?

It would be a bit suprising if he is working on Batman vs Superman, since we all know that he loves to work in the dark and this producer reveals a bit to much to what is known of Warners way to handle things.

McNyagano - It got deleted cause it's NOT A STORY. I talked to Dan, and he said it wasn't inside info. Trying to make a story out of that tweet was ridiculous.

whatever they call it, it'll be the best cbm of all time

@McNyagano what Nailbiter said.

Considering we've had to delete at least 7 articles about this, I'm willing to leave this one up, but make it an editorial.
nailbiter111 - 1/10/2014, 1:34 PM
I understand everyone is excited about Batman Vs. Superman, but we can't leap at every comment like it's a story.
nailbiter111 - 1/10/2014, 1:36 PM
MrBlackJackAce - it's a well put together article. i just don't want to see something like this get out of hand. people seem to ignore my exchange with Dan, but I'm glad you gave the whole story and didn't mislead people.

So once more this is not much of a story then? Just some insight into a Twitter user, with some wishful thinking?

People should stop believing what this dude says, he's worked *with* WB a few times, so what? If he were leaking legitimate information about the movie WB/DC would have his head.

I wanna be a big guy like nailbiter and DCMarvelFreshman.
McNyagano - 1/10/2014, 3:38 PM
@nailbiter111

I understand but didn't Josh Wilding make an article about Wonder Woman and Doomsday using this guy as a source?

McNyagano
Josh can do whatever the hell he wants. Whether that's a good or bad thing depends.
McNyagano - 1/10/2014, 3:53 PM
@staypuffed

I see. Hey I have no problem with my article taken down, I just found it a bit odd that's all.
Klone - 1/10/2014, 4:58 PM
Doomsday for JL origin? Okay. They can either play this card really, really safe or really, really stupid.

@Jollem

Lol, whatever. I forget you were the foreseer of the future and Fact Bringer of the Could've Been and Should've Been Realm Lord.
yonny616 - 1/10/2014, 5:15 PM
@McN Because you have no power. They are romans, and we are their Gladiators. lol

I find it really irratating when Josh or other editors take articles down. Some of them are inappropriate, or have been reported before - or in the case of the leaked Amazing Spider-Man relaunch cover, companies have asked to take them down - which is valid, but sometimes they do it for no apparent reason and then don't explain anything.

I once posted an article featuring a new Alex Ross variant for a Fantastic Four issue and a few hours later my article was deleted. I gave a source, and it wasn't much of an article, just showing off the cover. No explanation was given as to why it was taken down. It's really frustrating.
Spidey5194 - 1/10/2014, 8:47 PM
@SotoJuiceMan I didn't see his tweets concerning Wonder Woman so I can't comment on that. But the tired and weary Batman thing has been pretty much a given since Comic-Con, so I don't think that really lends credibility to anything he says. I think people have the misconception that he's actually a producer on the movie, whereas he's really just a producer who's worked with WB a few times. He probably knows a few people in the business and is told things a few days before they're announced, simple as that.
BenjiWest - 1/10/2014, 9:04 PM
@Spidey5194 - that's right. Odds are, he could of just been stating the characters description of The Dark Knight Returns, since they used a quote from that graphic novel to announce Batman's involvement.

@staypuffed - I got my article recently deleted as well without reason, until I had to inquire as to why. It was a Stan Lee cameos list, but they deleted because I didn't embed the scenes, and they gave me that please read the guidelines to posting an article. However nowhere in that does it state, you must embed videos or it will be deleted. Rather there is much talk of copyright stuff that makes me slightly leery to even do that. Plus I didn't know how.
MightyZeus - 1/11/2014, 9:23 AM
No i dont think it'll be titled Justice League. It's too soon. Wonder Woman is the only confirmed character to appear and she'll be a cameo. The Flash is rumored and Green Lantern is rumored. Not forgetting the banner is the Superman logo over the Batman logo.

I think the title should just be "Superman/Batman World's Finest".
NovaCorpsFan - 1/11/2014, 10:29 AM
We should all tweet stuff and see if the other comic book news sites grope at it as news.
Spidey5194 - 1/11/2014, 12:30 PM
I just refuse to believe that Doomsday is going to be in this movie. It's way too early, and I doubt WB wants to blow their load this early on in the cinematic universe. That's like if they had Thanos appear in Iron Man 2...
BenjiWest - 1/11/2014, 11:03 PM
Not really, doomsday is more of a superman villain than anything. They should go for it anyways, who knows how many opportunities they'll have.
