I Am Legend (Easter Egg) had it right all along: Noch bevor ein Justice League Film in die Kinos kommt (Gerüchten zufolge 2017), werden Bruce Wayne und Clark Kent in einem Crossover-Film aufeinander treffen. Auf der Comic-Con in San Diego wurde jetzt bekannt gegeben, dass Zack Snyder bei diesem Film Regie führen wird. Man will sich an Frank Millers Comic The Dark Knight Returns orientieren, diesen aber nicht umsetzen – was auch immer das zu bedeuten hat, es wird wohl schwierig nach den immensen Ausmaßen der Zerstörung und Zurschaustellung von Kraft einen Platz für irgendeine Version von Batman zu finden, die plausibel klingt. Wofür wird dieser Übermensch aus Man of Steel die Hilfe eines reichen Vigilanten ohne Superkräfte brauchen? 2015 werden wir es erfahren. Ich habe The Dark Knight Returns hier rumliegen, vielleicht sollte ich den jetzt endlich mal lesen.

Hier die offizielle Pressemitteilung von Warner Bros.
