Toldja #3: Warner Bros. To Reboot Batman; Possibly Connect To Justice League Movie and Man of Steel

Cosmic Book News was the first to tell you about a planned DC shared movie universe back in early June.

We told you the Man of Steel would spearhead it all, about a Batman in his second year of being a hero, the Justice League movie and more.

Now in an article that first appeared in The Hollywood Reporter Magazine, and has since been made available on its website, we get a confirmation that everything will be connected.

Or at least that is the plan.

In THR's update for the Warner Bros. films, they note how Christopher Nolan's Batman film trilogy came to a close with The Dark Knight Rises, and mention the direction Warner Bros. may take with Batman.

Warners will try to resuscitate Batman as a stand-alone franchise and/or as part of a planned Justice League ensemble that could connect to next summer's Man of Steel.

While nothing specific was mentioned by THR, regarding Batman we were told by a DC Entertainment insider that a new Batman movie is slated for some time around 2016 following the Justice League movie; that it will not be an origin story, but will feature a Batman who is entering his second year as a hero, with the title tentatively named "The Batman."

And the new Batman movie will be set within the same universe as the Justice League movie and the Man of Steel, with new Superman Henry Cavill to star in both.

In addition to the mention of a connected universe with the Justice League, Batman and Superman, it's been rumored that Wonder Woman may cameo in the new Man of Steel movie as well.
