Looks like Steve Rogers really is giving the orders now.

After about a month of rumored speculation, Marvel has officially confirmed that Captain America and his trusty vibranium shield will leap back onto the big screen on May 6, 2016 — meaning everyone’s favorite red, white, and blue super soldier will be facing off against another pair of costumed heroes in Warner Bros.’ Batman vs. Superman.

Warner Bros. reveals plans for a Batman/Superman film at Comic-Con -- UPDATED

At the conclusion of the Warner Bros/Legendary panel at Comic-Con, Man of Steel director Zack Snyder walked onstage. He thanked everyone for supporting Man of Steel and announced, rather nonchalantly: “It’s official: We’re making another Superman movie.” He insisted that he couldn’t say anything about the film, but explained that he had “pored through the DC Universe to look for a way to tell this thing.” He said there was a single element of the film he could share.

At that point, he called Harry Lennix — who you’ll recall basically played the Nick Fury character in Man of Steel — for a charismatic dramatic reading. (How charismatic? Lennix was wearing an ascot.) He read a key line from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns:

I want you 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.

That line is, of course, spoken by Batman — and that “Clark” he’s referencing is, of course, Superman. (The quote comes after a lengthy battle between the two heroes.) As Lennix finished speaking, a giant Superman logo appeared on the Hall H screen … and it was superimposed on the Batman logo. So there you go: There is another Superman movie coming, and it will co-star Batman.

No other information about the project was given at the panel, but the announcement is already sending ripples through the geekosphere. Warner Bros. has made it clear that they hope to build a whole connected cinematic universe of films on the foundation of Man of Steel, with loose plans for a Justice League film in the distance. Beginning that process with a Batman/Superman movie — let’s call it World’s Finest for now, shall we? Or maybe Men of Steel? — allows them to unite their two most recognizable character brands into one megamovie. It’s unclear at this point whether Man of Steel producer/Dark Knight director/Superhero-Whisperer Christopher Nolan will be involved, although the film will probably definitively break from the Dark Knight trilogy, with a rebooted Batman origin and a new actor. Who knows? All we have to go on is a logo on top of another logo. Stay tuned for more rumors about The Untitled Batman/Superman Project, appearing several times an hour on the internet for the next two years.

'Man of Steel' Comic-Con panel: Superman makes grand debut, Zack Snyder makes controversial claim

The Project: Man of Steel

The Panel: Henry Cavill, director Zack Snyder. Moderated by Chris Hardwick.

Footage Screened: Before the footage began, Snyder noted that a teaser trailer will be playing in front of The Dark Knight Rises next weekend, but he would be screening a longer version just for Comic-Con. His operating thesis: Making people feel like they could put themselves in Superman’s shoes, instead of seeing him as “this kind of big blue boy scout up on a throne.”  READ FULL STORY

Comic-Con: Up close and personal with every single Batmobile ever -- VIDEO

There are very few things in life better than getting to strap into the impossibly cool Batmobile from the Michael Keaton-era Batman movies and enjoy a quick spin in the sun-dappled dusk of San Diego Comic-Con.

To commemorate the end of Christopher Nolan’s Bat-trilogy next Friday with The Dark Knight Rises, Warner Bros. trotted out six iterations of the Caped Crusader’s sweet wheels: The cartoony car from Adam West-era TV series; the sleek Keaton-era car from both Batman and Batman Returns; the outlandish cars from the Joel Schumacher-era Batman Forever and Batman & Robin; and the Nolan-era tank-like “Tumbler” vehicles from Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.

We got an up-close look at all of them, including that aforementioned ride in the Keaton-era Batmobile — and you’re likely not going to believe who was driving it. Check out my full video report below:  READ FULL STORY

EW's Comic-Con 2012 movie preview: 'Iron Man 3,' 'Django Unchained,' 'Pacific Rim,' and 'Man of Steel'

COMICON-PREVIEW

Let’s face it — Comic-Con has become Movie-Con.

Though it originated decades ago as an annual haven for comic book fans, this week’s festival of all things geek-chic has become the ultimate place for Hollywood to show off its biggest, loudest, and most expensive tentpole motion pictures.

There are still comic books at the convention, and a lot of TV, and pretty much everyone involved in any type of genre storytelling will be trying to make an impact in and around San Diego this coming weekend.

But the biggest tent in this sci-fi/fantasy circus is the 6,000-plus-seat auditorium known as Hall H — and that’s where all those fans dressed as superheroes, stormtroopers, and Slave Leias will be fighting for a front row seat to the main event — movies.

Here’s a preview of what’s expected to shock and awe:

'The Hobbit,' 'Django Unchained,' 'Iron Man 3,' 'Man of Steel' scheduled for Comic-Con

Comic-Con devotees know well that Saturday is usually the peak day at the convention, when the density of attendees hits its maximum and the air grows thick with excitement (and body odor). It’s no surprise then that, in the convention’s newly unveiled Saturday schedule, some of the most highly anticipated upcoming fanboy-friendly movies have slated their presentations for that day.

Quentin Tarantino will be on hand at the Hall H panel for Django Unchained, along with as-yet-unannounced cast members, and will offer a sneak peek at footage from his gonzo western about a slave turned bounty hunter (Jamie Foxx) who sets out to rescue his wife from a cold-blooded plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio.)

Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures will pack a major combination punch at their Hall H presentation, rolling out three big tentpoles sure to soak up a lot of buzz at the convention: Guillermo del Toro’s sci-fi epic Pacific Rim, which pits giant monsters versus giant robots; Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot Man of Steel; and the first installment of director Peter Jackson’s two-part adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy classic The Hobbit, subtitled An Unexpected Journey.

Marvel will also be on hand to unveil a glimpse at Iron Man 3 at a panel featuring producer Kevin Feige and as-yet-unrevealed “special guests.” Will Feige also pull back the curtain on plans for Avengers 2? Stay tuned.

There’s plenty for TV fans in Saturday’s schedule as well, including a True Blood panel and Q&A (moderated by EW’s own Tim Stack) along with panels for The Simpsons, Once Upon a Time, Family Guy, Shameless, Grimm, and Glee.

Comic-Con 2011: 'Superman' Henry Cavill stumps for 'Immortals' and raves about 'Man of Steel' script

Hollywood’s new Superman flew into Comic-Con on Saturday, but said very little about director Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, which begins shooting in Chicago next week. Instead, Henry Cavill landed in Hall H to talk up Immortals (opening November 11), an epic fantasy inspired by Greek mythology directed with ferocious flair by surreal stylist Tarsem Singh (The Cell) and co-starring Mickey Rourke, Luke Evans, and Kellan Lutz. The real stars of the show were two pieces of footage: a 3D trailer overstuffed with awesome images of extraordinary scope (monolithic statues; a tidal wave; an imploding mountain); and a battle scene showcasing Evans’ Zeus. Tarsem told attendees that his R-rated movie was “a little darker” and “a little more hardcore” than previous teases may have suggested, and the elaborately choreographed fight sequence between Zeus (supported by other warriors in gold plated armor) and hellacious, subterranean creatures – filled with bloodshed and beheadings and man-beasts getting split in half with a swing of the sword – proved it.
