This past weekend at Comic-Con, some major superhero news was announced.

At a Warner Bros. panel this Saturday, the studio announced that Henry Cavill, the star of this summer’s Man of Steel, will reprise the role of Superman in a sequel that will also feature Batman.

Man of Steel director Zack Snyder will act in the same capacity for the follow-up, expected in 2015.

No casting for Batman was mentioned but Snyder teased that the Gotham City hero’s relationship with Superman in Frank Miller’s seminal 1980s comic The Dark Knight Returns will inform aspects of Man of Steel 2.
