MOVIEPILOT.com have posted an article claiming to know intimate details about the Batman/Bruce Wayne that we will be seeing in the highly anticipated Man of Steel sequel coming in May 2016. As reliable as the editor, The Anonymous Man, sounds, I recommend you take these claims with the usual grain of salt

Many fans of the upcoming production may have mixed feelings about the list found below, as some of the claims range from shocking to very exciting.

Please remember that any rumor, however outlandish it may sound, is a potential SPOILER so, you've been warned.


• BatFleck will be 40 years old, retired.

• The Batsuit and Batmobile are A...MA...ZING!!!!

• Except for several details, the events that took place in the NolanVerse are going to be Canon. Thalia's involvement in the events of TDKR will not be canon, the supposed death of Bane is also not canon. Other small details are made non-canon. 

• After the events of TDKR, BatFleck retired to rebuild Gotham as Bruce Wayne. Robin (in the TDKR but not played by JGL) becomes his first protege as NightWing. There is a 7-year time period between the event in the TDKR and MoS. So, BatFleck has been retired for 7 years. 

• During this time, knowing that crime needs to be dealt with, BatFleck constituted the BatFamily: NightWing, BatWing, BatGirl, RedRobin and Robin. The latter died at the hand of The Joker who escaped during the TDKR's event but then reappeared. As a way of getting BatFleck's attention, the Joker devised a plan to attack one of his proteges. He targeted the youngest and less experienced one - Robin. He killed him and BatFleck has been blaming himself day and night for it, this sets up a Batman: Under The Red Hood solo movie. 

• In addition to his [Bat Family], BatFleck has launched a bunch of BatDrones & BatAndroids ("[Bat Army]") Bruce Wayne is one of the most influential man on the planet due to his rebuilding agenda in Gotham, and the rise of Wayne Enterprises. 

• Gotham City is basically led by [Bruce Wayne & Wayne Enterprises] by day and the [Bat Family] & [Bat Army] by night. Bruce Wayne has to find time to manage both sides. And, he does. There have been speculation that Bruce Wayne is an ally of the Batman. Bruce admits that he's been "financing" the Batman. But, he says he's never actually met the Batman. He argues that the Batman is making Gotham City a safer place. He argues that without the Batman, Gotham would have been destroyed. This is, of course, the general consensus in the populace. Hence, the fact that he's siding with Batman does not really raise any concerns. 

• After the TDKR's event and before MoS, Gotham city is internationally known as the Batman's City. The Batman became an international Legend, the Bat symbol is now viewed as a symbol of Justice, Defiance, and Courage. People are increasingly believing that BatFleck's still alive and kicking...watching over Gotham as a guardian angel. The authorities don't like this, they don't like how the mythos of this vigilante is making them look like a bunch of P****. They would like to put a stop to the [Bat Family] and the [Bat Army]. In other words, the Batman is an embarrassment to them, he's a problem. 

• BatFleck is concerned by the events of MoS. Bane's terror in Gotham is still fresh in his memory; the reconstruction of Gotham is not completely done. Everyone saw what this alien is capable of. BatFleck is the world's greatest Detective and Prep. Expert; he decides to research every single details there is to know about Kal-El. 

• Bruce Wayne wants to get involved with the reconstruction of Metropolis. This means that Wayne Enterprises and LexCorp have to work together. He's not thrilled about it but it's for the greater good.


Well, there you have it. Let us know what you like, love, and/or, hate? Does this scoop read more like shot-in-the-dark predictions, a fanboy's wishlist, or, the real deal to you? Make your decisions known in the usual place, and, thanks for reading.


The tentatively titled Batman vs. Superman stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams, with Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, and Jeremy Irons. The film is set for release on May 6, 2016.

First, first, and first.

"the events that took place in the NolanVerse are going to be Canon."




If that's the case, the where the [frick] was Batman when Zod and Superman were tearing up Metropolis? -_-
Pasto - 3/18/2014, 8:31 AM
This sounds to good to be true. But IF it's true, then this ought to shut the haters up to a great extent.

He died remember? I din't think Bruce would make and appearance as batman unless it involved Gotham.
McNyagano - 3/18/2014, 8:32 AM
Great find Enph;)

Remember that episode of Brave and The Bold, where Batman said he'd do anything to protect Gotham, even if it meant letting another city fall be the wayside? Thats sums up Batman pretty well. So IF Nolanverse is canon, then i completely understand why he would have helped Supes. Now, if Zod attacked Gotham, then bats would've made an appearance.
DaVinci31 - 3/18/2014, 8:34 AM
No. I stopped reading after the Nolan-verse bullsh*t.
JordanKing - 3/18/2014, 8:35 AM
Retired at 40? What a pussy.
Thevenominside - 3/18/2014, 8:35 AM
wow. sounds almost like the batman/superman worlds finest movie...........
Pasto - 3/18/2014, 8:35 AM
Jack
And he has the Batfamily.
McNyagano - 3/18/2014, 8:36 AM
@Pasto

Yeah then he mysteriously comes out of nowhere . Wouldn't that be a retcon of some sought? What about John Blake who found the Bat cave at the end of TDKR? Why would he want to help rebuild Metropolis now? I call bullshit on this.
Enphlieuwince - 3/18/2014, 8:36 AM
Thanks McNya!
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 3/18/2014, 8:36 AM
That would be very pointless to tie in the Nolanverse
THEBAMF - 3/18/2014, 8:37 AM
This "Batman is retired" thing is bullshit.
Pasto - 3/18/2014, 8:37 AM
McNya
I honestly hope this is true. But I highly doubt it. And maybe John was busy handling stuff in either Gotham or Bludhaven.
DaVinci31 - 3/18/2014, 8:38 AM
This sounds worse than Batman and Robin.

If this is true, then it is so friggin dope.

Way to blow your cover Wayne

LordMushu - 3/18/2014, 8:41 AM
I dont think so.
JoJo1982 - 3/18/2014, 8:42 AM
Hard time believing this!!!!





FAKE
MexicanSuperman - 3/18/2014, 8:42 AM
I believe this with a mountain of salt.

We already knew this. They said he would be like Kingdom Come.
TheWorldsFinest - 3/18/2014, 8:42 AM
When I read that bat family part, I thought I was gonna have a heart attack. Nightwing, red robin, batgirl, batwing, and now possibly red hood. HOLY SHIT!
charlie2094 - 3/18/2014, 8:43 AM
I don't believe this, but who knows. Don't think they can just pick and choose what to make canon, either it all happened or none of it happened, otherwise it's just too messy..

@McNyagano

Well the actual Zod/Superman fight didn't last that long so, by the time Batman got there (if at all, considering he was retired and maybe didn't have a suit) it would have likely been over...the destruction done could be what brings him out retirement. Could maybe work? Calling BS though :P
typicalfanboy - 3/18/2014, 8:43 AM
I no understand
Pasto - 3/18/2014, 8:43 AM
taran6
I know right? That would be so awesome. And with the supposed appearance of Red hood on Arrow....you never know what DC/WB has up their sleeve...
Nubase - 3/18/2014, 8:44 AM
there is some truth in this, zack did say that they are not recreating the batman from scratch but using the dark knight rises as the jump off point, meaning that this batman is semi retired as he has been fighing crime for 8 years so the scenes at the beginning of dark knight rises where you see bruce wayne as a recluse at wayne mansion will perhaps be recreated again but only this time his battles were before he retirement not after as in dark knight rises
BlacktinAmerica - 3/18/2014, 8:44 AM
MFW reading this article.
ALegendaryPanda - 3/18/2014, 8:45 AM
Oh my god will people just LET THE DAMN NOLAN UNIVERSE GO?? That series is done, finished, complete, and never coming back! Ever!
Starfox - 3/18/2014, 8:46 AM
Pretty Cool If true but I believe Nolan said that his Trilogy is a thing of its own.
MrReese - 3/18/2014, 8:46 AM
Yea I call boooshit! This will not tie in to the Nolanverse. & here I thought this article would have made my day. :(
McNyagano - 3/18/2014, 8:46 AM
@Charlie2094

I thought Robin Blake took on the mantle though at the end of TDKR?
ProfessorX - 3/18/2014, 8:46 AM
Batman is always retired. 'The Dark Knight' was the only film were he was Batman all the time, but even in that he wasn't the main character (Joker was).
ALmazing - 3/18/2014, 8:46 AM
"Except for several details, the events that took place in the NolanVerse are going to be Canon. Thalia's involvement in the events of TDKR will not be canon, the supposed death of Bane is also not canon. Other small details are made non-canon."

So its canon but not really.

wtf

Why can't they just leave Nolan's batman alone?
kinghulk - 3/18/2014, 8:47 AM
i think this is fake
DefcoN - 3/18/2014, 8:48 AM
It sounds interesting, but I don't buy it.
OpticBlastWins - 3/18/2014, 8:49 AM
I wish i was blind enough to believe this...
BANEofExistence - 3/18/2014, 8:49 AM
I CLAIM bullsit. That would mean we wouldn't be getting Ras Al Gul, Two-Face, The Joker (Unless they find a recast as good as Heath in acting and appearance) wouldn't even be appearing... I think the onlyway its "Canon" is he had an origin a bunch of villains exist and are in Arkham (Crane, Joker, Zsasz) and we wont get there origins in solo bat films... Id like to see Riddler, Clayface, Harley, Mr.Freeze, Ras (again) and Killer Croc in this new series
