DC Adaptations To Be "Basis" For Warner Bros.; BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN Title Confirmed?

While Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara talked this past weekend about Ben Affleck's "seasoned" Batman, we now have some more quotes from his speech to shareholders which promise a larger focus on DC's comic book stable moving forward and possible confirmation of the Batman Vs. Superman title.

By Josh Wilding - 9/16/2013

When the Harry Potter franchise ended, many fans thought it would mean that Warner Bros. would focus their efforts on bringing more DC comic book characters to life on the big screen. However, the commercial failure of Green Lantern and a trilogy of movies based on The Hobbit seems to have slowed those plans down, and you can't blame anyone for being worried about the likes of Wonder Woman and The Flash when there are more films based on J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter characters are on the way. However, we now have a quote from Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara in which he seems to make it clear that the DC superheroes do factor somewhere into their plans of releasing between 12 - 14 movies a year. "I think the basis, foundation of those 12 to 14 pictures are going to be coming from DC Entertainment." While he would later add that further announcements are on the way, the CEO may have inadvertently let slip the title of Zack Snyder's Batman/Superman movie when talking about the highly anticipated team-up. "We have Batman Vs. Superman coming out in 2015, but there are going to be in the coming months a lot of announcements regarding the future movie, television, games and consumer product pieces that are going to be coming from DC." This is the same title spotted recently on Watchmen cinematographer Larry Fong's resume at Worldwide Production Agency.

Awesome, finally getting serious about the DCCU now.
LEVITIKUZ - 9/16/2013, 11:34 AM
[frick] Batman VS Superman. Batman can't beat Superman and this is coming from a die hard Batman fan. My grandma could beat Superman with Kryptonite.

And yea I bet 12-14 DC films are coming. That's a lot of Batman and Superman films you're making.

Talk is cheap.
Reasonnnn - 9/16/2013, 11:37 AM
12-14 Batman/Superman movies.*
MexicanSuperman - 9/16/2013, 11:37 AM
Cool, can't wait. Please don't make it a versus film.
Emjeed - 9/16/2013, 11:40 AM
I think he's saying that the majority of the next 12-14 movies WB is gonna release are gonna be DC films. Not 12 DC films. Like how Disney is releasing some stuff but Marvel Studios movies are the bulk of those releases. So maybe 4 or 5 DC films, those three Harry Potter spinoff films, a few bad comedies .. You know the usual.
LEVITIKUZ - 9/16/2013, 11:41 AM
Who really wants to watch Batman VS Superman? Why would you have them fight. There is no way Batman can win. The only one idea I see if its like Hush. Bats fighting Supers and to get Superman to snap out of it, he has Selina drop Lois from a building.
Emjeed - 9/16/2013, 11:43 AM
"The foundation of those 14 pictures (films)" not "The next 14 films"
ATrueHero1987 - 9/16/2013, 11:44 AM
So was Variety or THR right when they said The Flash was coming out in 2016? Because I haven't heard WB talk about that yet.
Emjeed - 9/16/2013, 11:45 AM
@LEVI I share your pain.. They always have to make batman more appealing at the expense of Superman.. Smh
lapress - 9/16/2013, 11:47 AM
Beiber was RIGHT!
knocturnalzen10 - 9/16/2013, 11:47 AM
batman's name shouldn't be in the title i dislike his antics most of the time with troling super man articles but sage is correct on the batman cash cow
smh it needs to be MOS2 or sup's quits killing something like that
COME ON WB !

Brainiac13 - 9/16/2013, 11:47 AM

Hell in TDKR Batman fought a Superman that was in the middle of a nuclear bomb blast & he had Robin and Green Arrow on his side.
StarkAnthony - 9/16/2013, 11:50 AM
Warner Bros Studios will be making 12 to 14 movies a year including the DC offerings, not 12 to 14 DC offerings. so I'm thinking like 2 or 3 DC movies a year tops.
JoeMomma29 - 9/16/2013, 11:50 AM
It sounds like great news, but I will believe when I see it. WB has always dangled this carrot in front of us but all we get is Batz and Supes.

I will get excited when I hear officially that a Flash, WW, or Aquaman movie is announced. Heck just anyone of those and I will be excited.
Amazing512 - 9/16/2013, 11:52 AM
Meh. Im honestly not psyched for this movie at all at the moment
GoILL - 9/16/2013, 11:52 AM
Really not feeling Batman's name appearing before Superman's in a film that is supposed to a sequel to Man of Steel.
LEVITIKUZ - 9/16/2013, 11:52 AM
Batmaniac

but seeing Batman, a mere human beat the man of steel creates a spectacle to be remembered.

That will only create more people to love Batman and make Superman look like a pussy.

Why does anyone want to see Batman beat Superman? Does any Marvel fans want to see Wolverine & Spider-Man fight in a movie?
McNyagano - 9/16/2013, 11:53 AM
WB you serious?? TALK IS CHEAP!!


Emjeed - 9/16/2013, 11:53 AM
It's just ridiculous. How the [frick] can Batman go against the Superman we saw in MOS? this mother[frick]er took several minutes of straight hit from a [frick]ing world engine, destroyed like half the city with his fight and didn't burn during reentry. Took on three of his own kind and.. He Survived Faora. Idk... This is a bit hard to swallow. I get it in the comics but man..
Zarog - 9/16/2013, 11:53 AM
Vs. huh? You're morons WB. There should be no versus. Why can't you just call it Superman/Batman: World's Finest?
Timerider84 - 9/16/2013, 11:54 AM
ATrueHero1987@, its coming, The Flash and Wonder Woman are on their way to the big screen.
Reasonnnn - 9/16/2013, 11:54 AM
@LEVI I want Wolverine & Spider-Man fighting...side by side...with quips!
LEVITIKUZ - 9/16/2013, 11:56 AM
There is a difference in writing a character smart and all knowing. You can write Batman smart and him not know or figure out Superman's weakness. Batman knows he can't stand a chance to Superman because of how powerful he is. That doesn't make Batman dumb he can't figure out how to beat him. No one could or can.

But Lex should though.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 9/16/2013, 11:57 AM
Once again Warner [frick]s up. WTF title is that shit?
ForeverPowerful - 9/16/2013, 11:57 AM
Good.

Get your thumbs out of your asses and make some [frick]ing DC movies WB.

WonderWoman, Green Lantern 2, Flash...just more than just Superman and Batman.
3DWitchHunt - 9/16/2013, 11:57 AM
Goddamn it WB
Just announce a DC film line up
Create some big screen hype in other characters besides Batman and Superman
TheYoungMan - 9/16/2013, 11:57 AM
Title should be 'Man of Steel 2: Age of Affleck'
JoeMomma29 - 9/16/2013, 11:57 AM
And how the hello is Batz supposed to fight Supes in this movie. Come one they have not introduced Kryptonite yet......What are they going to have Bruce just some how discover the stuff?????? I am so pissed off at WB right now.
erth2drew - 9/16/2013, 11:58 AM
your all idiots wb themselves are release 12-14 movies a year, IN GENERAL!!!!! and he's probably just referring to it as that bc its kind of a stupid title to a man of steel sequel
KamenRiderJ - 9/16/2013, 11:58 AM


Bring this shit!
Kaedus - 9/16/2013, 11:59 AM
"Batman vs Superman" probably isn't the actual title.

He probably just said that in reference to them both being in the next film, of which some part will be antagonist (much like the Avengers fighting before teaming up). Then it's been taken as a direct quote and written up as a movie title.
LEVITIKUZ - 9/16/2013, 12:00 PM
It should have Bruce Wayne/Superman hunted by Lex.

Maybe even Batman/Clark Kent hunted by Black Mask or Penguin.
Dmon - 9/16/2013, 12:00 PM
Batman VS Superman is just a working title not the actual one. It is just easy to call it that when speaking of it.
CharlesLord - 9/16/2013, 12:01 PM
hahahahaha if thats the real title....
JoeMomma29 - 9/16/2013, 12:02 PM
I am so the title of the movie will change that is a given. And yes I understood that the 12 to 14 movies each year there will be a mix of DC movies released but exactly how many my guess is ONE if we are lucky.

Man the share holders need to press them and keep reminding them of Marvle/Disney.
naterator - 9/16/2013, 12:02 PM
Just because he said that ...,,doesnt mean thats the working title.... i mean for crying out loud.... what was man of steels working title??... Autumn Frost... thats right. Im sure it will be something like WORLDS FINEST.
Boyle360 - 9/16/2013, 12:03 PM
Nope. There's no way.
1. Batman vs Superman is an AWFUL title. Besides, he's probably not allowed to say the real name yet, so for the moment he's calling it that. Either that or they haven't decided a name yet.
2. 12-14 movies a year is total bullshit. That will never happen. Never.
LEVITIKUZ - 9/16/2013, 12:05 PM
Batmaniac

So MOS established Superman as not a pussy yet we need SvB to establish Batman as dangerous.

HE'S BATMAN!!! WE ALL KNOW HE'S DANGEROUS!!! WE DON'T NEED HIM BEATING SUPERMAN TO ESTABLISH THAT AFTER A BADASS BATMAN TRILOGY!!!
