August 14, 2011: Is Warner Bros. Pushing for a World's Finest Movie?

Superman vs Batman ThinkMcflyThink claims to have received word that Warner Bros. is very keen to produce a World's Finest film starring Batman and Superman.

    Similar to Justice League, the Brothers Warner has wanted to get their two biggest superheroes on the same screen together for years. The closest it came to fruition was Batman vs. Superman with Wolfgang Peterson-directing from a script by Andrew Kevin Walker. That fell apart as we all know, but executives loved that script.

    In a classic case of covering your ass, what we're hearing is two separate incarnations are being tooled. One version where the World's Greatest Detective is firmly established and helps mentor an up-and-coming, fresh-faced Supes and vice versa. Essentially, they're hoping they can woo Christian Bale back into the cape-and-cowl for a fourth time and in case the Oscar-winner tells them, "No thanks, I'm done!", they'll go for a new actor altogether. Both versions would feature Henry Cavill's Last Son of Krypton.

Whether this happens or not is up for speculation. Obviously Warner Bros. are hoping that "Man of Steel" is successful before anything else.
