    They r not 2 different universes, they where created as part of 1 DC universe and they hv been friends for years so this undoubtedly works, they belong on screen together as a team. ONE MORE TIME, BATMAN AND SUPERMAN ARE THE SAME UNIVERSE!!!!!! CAPTAIN AMERICA AND IRON MAN ARE SO DIFFERENT BUT ARE IN THE SAME UNIVERSE AND THEY WORK ON SCREEN AND SO WILL BATS AND SUPS

    @Roz: batman likes to work alone and doesn’t enjoy interefrence in the way he handles a situation so it will be fun watching batman giving a tough time to superman with all his ego

    Firstly, there have been comic books where both characters meet. The Batman/Superman comic series was a thing, alright? They’re from the same creators and they’re superheroes so the thing about different universes? Not that far fetched. Secondly, while Bruce Wayne should be played by someone older, Tyler could play the role of an older man easily. He’s a good actor, and I could see him as Batman. Plus, even if Henry is older than Hoechlin, it doesn’t necessarily look that way. I feel as though they’d have good chemistry, simply because of their acting styles and what I can see of their personalities in interviews. Even if Hoechlin doesn’t get the role, I feel as though it’ll be a good experience for him. If he does get it, it’s because he deserves it, and if the creators think so, then there you go, we have our new batman. We can respect Bale being done with the series, so as hard as it is to let go, we’re going to be moving in a good direction, I think.

    I think the poor lose out, play opposite Henry …. if that is going to be sponsors for the next, the guy does not say anything, just did not fail because it is supermann. In Brazil he lost his fame after medinho got to come at launch.
