RUMOR: Which Other DC Superhero Will Be Referenced In MAN OF STEEL?

We already know that if Zack Snyder's Superman reboot is a hit, it will most likely lay the groundwork for a proper DC movie universe. We've also heard it hinted that other characters would even get a mention in the movie -- and now we may know who one of 'em will be..

This one comes courtesy of our old pal Jake Lester, who has had the inside track on the goings on with Man Of Steel for quite a while now. In the third trailer for the movie, the LexCorp building is glimpsed in Metropolis, but Jake reckons that won't be the only big business that's featured. This shouldn't come as too big a surprise, as if any other character was going to get a mention it was always more than likely going to be this one, but according to Jake Wayne Enterprises will be mentioned "in some fashion", and not only that -- Batman himself will be directly referenced. In what way? He doesn't know, but he says it will definitely NOT be the same character from Christopher Nolan's Bat-flicks, but a brand new incarnation to be used in WB's future Batman movies. There's more at the link below, be sure to head on over to CBT to check it out.

knocturnalzen10 - 5/6/2013, 11:24 AM

DioFoRio - 5/6/2013, 11:24 AM

ATrueHero1987 - 5/6/2013, 11:25 AM
Cool if this is true!!
ElBicho - 5/6/2013, 11:25 AM
It's got to be true. El Mayimbe confirmed it on the twitter.
CavEl - 5/6/2013, 11:26 AM
Doubtful...but not impossible.

Superman is the first superpowered being/alien in this universe, but I guess Batman doesn't count as a superpowered being.
ForeverPowerful - 5/6/2013, 11:28 AM
We'll see.

If they do reboot Batman, keep Armie Hammer far far away from it.

MrReese - 5/6/2013, 11:29 AM
I knew it would be Bruce/Batman or even Gotham.
AlSimmons - 5/6/2013, 11:30 AM
I call Kord.
SpectacularJoShFest - 5/6/2013, 11:30 AM
If anything this sounds a lot better than having Nolan's Batman make an appearance.THAT BATMAN DOESN'T BELONG IN THE SAME UNIVERSE,PEOPLE!!!!!
Batman reboot!!!! BRING IT!!!!

darkknightmare2012 - 5/6/2013, 11:30 AM
i dont think they refrence too much as it seemed very unclear while they were filming man of steel what exactly wb wanted to do with these properties so i dont think there will be many easter eggs at all ..
JoeMomma29 - 5/6/2013, 11:30 AM
I cannot wait!!!!
HellsHammer - 5/6/2013, 11:33 AM
Hope so!
SpectacularJoShFest - 5/6/2013, 11:34 AM
Make this happen!!!!!!!!





Brainiac13 - 5/6/2013, 11:35 AM
Worlds Finest after MOS?
JoeMomma29 - 5/6/2013, 11:35 AM
There will be some easter eggs not to many but enough. Who knows maybe they will insert an after credit scene that will blow us away (I can only hope)..
Moohika - 5/6/2013, 11:37 AM
I will literally faint in the theater if this is true!
Vaportrail - 5/6/2013, 11:38 AM
Seriously.
New 52 Batman design.


Let's get the grey suit into the movies.
Fogs - 5/6/2013, 11:41 AM
Please, a Bats closer to the Arkham series one.
UltimaRex - 5/6/2013, 11:41 AM
As much as I wanted Armie Hammer for Superman, even I don't want him for Batman.
Danbojohnj - 5/6/2013, 11:43 AM
Jon Hamm for Brucey/Bats.
DCMultiverse - 5/6/2013, 11:43 AM
WORLD'S FINEST FTW!!
THIS - 5/6/2013, 11:44 AM
Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Tim Blake), who is now in his first year as Batman.
JoeMomma29 - 5/6/2013, 11:44 AM
Yup I hate when Gusto dresses up for Easter!!!!




JoeMomma29 - 5/6/2013, 11:46 AM
Oh Yeah here is Gusto's favorite outfit!!!!


Nubase - 5/6/2013, 11:46 AM
gotham city will get a mention, perhaps on a news broadcast, the internet or something, they will let everyone watching the movie know that gotham is in man of steel universe but that will be it.

They will make the focus on man of steel totally first, WB/DC will not do what marvel are doing with their easter eggs.
TheBaroness89 - 5/6/2013, 11:46 AM
My wishful thinking mid credits scene:

Superman/Clark is at his apartment in Metropolis. He can't sleep...he gets up to go to the kitchen. Maybe warm milk...maybe a glass of water...maybe he wants some crunch berries... :)
A Batarang flies into frame direct hit on wall next to Clark... there is a note :"we need to talk" CUT TO BLACK
JoeMomma29 - 5/6/2013, 11:47 AM
I would love a scene after the credits with someone's back to the camera talking to Supes about how he is not alone there are others like him etc.. And that there is a big threat coming and he needs someone to lead them!!!!
CavEl - 5/6/2013, 11:51 AM
Ugh, no Batman vs. Superman.

Batman is so beneath Superman that Superman doesn't even give it his all when they clash.
113 - 5/6/2013, 11:51 AM
YEEEAAAHHH

A direct reference to The Bats? Awesome!
CavEl - 5/6/2013, 11:53 AM
And Batman can't sneak up on Superman...superhearing.

No cheesy Marvel cameos.
DCMultiverse - 5/6/2013, 11:54 AM
Dang! What about Gina Carrano as WW? My greatest hope! :-)
ForeverPowerful - 5/6/2013, 11:57 AM
No Armie Hammer, no Hamm, no Gosling.

Sam Witwer for Bats if you want a younger version, Jeffrey Donovan for an older Bats.
DCfan89 - 5/6/2013, 11:57 AM
