    Batman & Superman sequels on - Variety February 23, 2006

    WB Planning Batman & Superman Sequels
    Source: Variety
    February 23, 2006


    Warner Bros. Pictures is already planning the next installments to Batman Begins and Superman Returns, with respective helmers Christopher Nolan and Bryan Singer in line to return, reports Variety.

    While neither director's deal is closed, the studio has hired Jonathan Nolan -- Christopher's brother -- to write the screenplay for the untitled "Batman" project. The studio has options on "Begins" star Christian Bale and "Returns" star Brandon Routh.

    Next installment in the Caped Crusader franchise is further along in the process since "Begins" was released last summer; Singer's "Returns," now in post-production, doesn't get released until June 30. "Batman" and "Superman" sequels could make their debut in 2008 and 2009, respectively.

    If Christian Bale and Michael Caine return, as well as other cast like Morgan Freeman, I'm definitely looking forward to Batman.

    I don't know about the Superman movie though. The premise sounds strange - taking place after the first or second movie that starred Christopher Reeve? They should've just followed the same formula as with Batman, rebooting the series, and called it Superman Begins.

    Of the Reeve series 2 was best, one was great. Then like Batman did later, 3 & 4 were absolute pathetic Jokes.

    I look forward to Superman. I am a "Batman" person myself, but enjoy most all the Super hero flicks...

    Yeah, this announcement comes as a shock to absolutely noone. It also doesn't really provide any new info other than the fact that Nolan's brother has officially been given the task of scripting the Bats sequel.
