Warner Bros. and Man of Steel director Zack Snyder dropped a bombshell at Comic-Con Saturday when they announced iconic superheroes Batman and Superman would share the spotlight in the sequel to the aforementioned film.
But according to Entertainment Weekly, a line from The Dark Knight Returns spoken by Henry Lennix (who played Nick Fury in Man of Steel) suggests Superman and Batman wouldn’t fight alongside one another.
“I want to remember, Clark. In all the years to come. In all your most private moments. I want you to remember my hand at your throat. I want you to remember the one man who beat you,” Lennix reads.
Batman speaks the line above, and of course, the “Clark” he’s speaking to is indeed Superman. Apparently, the quote comes after a grueling battle fought between the two DC superheroes.
No further information about the film was given, but the announcement was enough to hype Comic-Con attendees, not to mention incite discussion as to which DC superhero is the strongest.
Comic-Con International 2013 took place at the San Diego Convention Center from July 18-21. More information regarding next year’s event can be viewed here.
