The Batsuit, the mythology and following on from Man Of Steel: Zack Snyder has been chatting about Batman Vs Superman...

We still suspect director Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel sequel won't be called Batman Vs Superman, but it remains the best title we've got for the project at the moment, so we're going to go with it.

Chatting with the Los Angeles Times, Snyder has given an update on the project, confirming that "we're getting ready to start shooting in a month or so". So what's he up to at the moment on the film? "We were just testing the suits", he said. "The new Batsuit and the Superman suit. It wasn't even with the actors, right? It was just to see them standing there, and they were standing next to each other and I was like 'guys, someone take a picture! This has never happened before"".

Teasing that the new film "literally takes the Man Of Steel and Batman universes and explodes them", Snyder addressed the issue of some of the criticisms that have been aimed at the project. "We know the material", he said. "Unfortunately, the fans don't know the material. So we're casting according to what's happening in the script, and we're hoping that leads to enough orginality, enough perspective on what we're doing that you get something fresh and exciting".

"I understand the canon", he asserted. "I'm not crazy, I know what these characters need from a mythological standpoint".

Currently scheduled for release on May 6th 2016,  we'll have more on Batman Vs Superman as we hear it. We'd imagine the first picture of the Batsuit can't be too far away...
