Within about ten minutes, however, that disorganized excitement was replaced by a sea of wild speculation with one question getting way more play than any other: who the hell is going to play Batman?
Frank Miller And Zack Snyder Meeting About Batman-Superman Movie
Frank Miller and Zack Snyder go way back.

Zack Snyder Explains Man Of Steel's Controversial Ending
We can't stop talking about the ending of Man of Steel, and we're not alone. Everyone on the Internet it seems, including people who are bona fide Superman experts, are obsessed with the way that Zack Snyder wraps up his taken on the blue Boy Scout, either criticizing the needless destruction, defending Snyder's action skills, or doing both at the same time. It's a very confusing time to be a superhero fan
