While hitting the press rounds for MAN OF STEEL, director Zack Snyder revealed an amazingly awesome spoiler for the Superman reboot. According to the head honcho himself…
“The Wayne Enterprises logo is on a satellite that Zod destroys.”
Which means Bruce Wayne, aka Batman, is a member of this universe. Though, we can’t be certain if this Easter Egg is evidence of a greater Nolan verse, which would include both The Dark Knight Saga and the new franchise spawned by Man of Steel, or if the Wayne Enterprises logo belongs to a rebooted version of the Caped Crusader.
As a fan of the gritty, Nolan realism, I’d really hope that Warner Bros. found a way to reunite Christian Bale with his cowl, but that doesn’t seem very likely. What do you think?
In my mind, this is how a possible team-up movie (of only Superman and Batsy) will play out…
An extra-terrestrial ship breaks through one of Superman’s early detection systems he’s placed around our solar system. The Big Blue Boyscout flies into outer space, confronts the menace, but is quickly defeated by the long, veiny, mechanical bitch slap of the worst scourge of Krypton, Brainiac!!! After crash landing on Earth, Superman discovers that he’s been severely weakened by a radioactive element that courses through the big Baddie’s circuitry, and so reverting to his Clark Kent persona, he goes to Gotham in search of a hero to aide him in this great battle!
So… long story short… Batman and Supes team-up, kick some alien ass, and then take a holiday weekend in Las Vegas to celebrate their victory (as well as tenderly consummating their bromance).
