Zack Snyder seemed to confirm that “Man of Steel” would set up “Justice League” and Henry Cavill to play Clark Kent/Super Man in both films. Now, HitFlix is reporting that WB is staying with Christopher Nolan’s Batman universe, going with Joseph Gordon-Levitt to play the hero in the JL film. It makes sense, so that they wouldn’t have to introduce a new Batman in the JL film. More interesting is the fact that the trade reports at least one other actor from the Nolan films will do something. Of course this will all change. But, could we be seeing cameos from Lucious Fox, perhaps even Gordon? Also, if this is true, it does make one think, perhaps JGL’s reveal as Robin and the new Batman was the first JL easter egg. Bat cameo in “Man of Steel” anyone?
