It has been revealed that plans are afoot for a new film which will see Superman and Batman facing off against each other for the first time.

In a move that is sure to surprise some, the caped crusaders will fight in a sequel to last month’s hit Superman film, “Man of Steel.”

“Let’s face it, it’s beyond mythological to have Superman and our new Batman facing off, since they are the greatest superheros in the world,” said Zack Snyder, who made the announcement and has been confirmed as director of the as-yet unnamed film.

British actor Henry Cavill is set to reprise the role of Superman in the sequel, but there has been no word on who will play Batman.

The film is slated for release in summer 2015.
