Man of Steel Sequel Announced: Batman Will Appear in World's Finest!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Man of Steel is getting a sequel, and that is not even the biggest news: Batman will appear in the Zack Snyder-directed follow-up to his smash. Using a speech from The Dark Knight Returns, actor Harry Lennix (who's in Man of Steel) joined Snyder on stage at Comic-Con and made a statement that will be felt throughout the DC cinematic world.

Superman Batman Logo

"I want you to remember, Clark, in all the years to come, in all your private moments, in all the years to come, my hand at your throat,” Lennix said. “I want you to remember, the one man who beat you.”

During the Warner Bros. panel, no other huge information was released, although Snyder did reveal the logo and announced that Man of Steel veterans Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne will return. Well, and Superman himself: Henry Cavill. 

Given that Batman will be appearing in a movie before Justice League, take our poll and let us know: Who should play Batman?

Jensen Ackles all the way. Supernatural isn't especially popular but those who watch it know exactly what I'm talking about. He can pull off the humble hero act effortlessly and he has the charm to round out the role. I can't imagine a better batman than Jensen


Jensen Ackles would be perfect as Batman!


Jensen Ackles from Supernatural, although not a household name, is a fantastic actor embodies what a hero is. Humble selfless loyal. He would be an excellent Batman and we could definitely use a new fresh face on the big screen.


WTH is JGL the top choice? he shouldn't has anything to do with the new DCU....audience will misthink it takes place in Nolanverse, which Batman hung his cape already....and it's weird to have people call him John Blake instead of Bruce Wayne.!!!
