Will There Be a Batman-Superman Team-Up in Theaters Soon?

Now that Man of Steel has proven to be a success, fans are wondering if Time Warner's (NYSE: TWX  ) next step will be to pair its two biggest superheroes in a big-screen team-up, says Fool contributor Tim Beyers in the following video.

Fans' interest in a Batman-Superman film comes at an interesting time. Next week, Warner and DC Entertainment will be at San Diego Comic-Con to talk more about its big-screen plans, which presumably include a Justice League film by 2015.

Would such an accelerated schedule make sense? And if not, would a Batman-Superman film make more sense? Tim isn't sure, if only because the logistics of pulling off such an audacious project while also filming Man of Steel 2 might be too much for Warner to do well.

Therein lies the danger, Tim says. The last time Warner tried to do too much on screen, the result was a box office bomb called Green Lantern. And yet Warner may not have the necessary time to mimic Walt Disney's (NYSE: DIS  ) measured approach, which means betting on big names, and beloved characters may its best hope for boosting profits.

Now it's your turn to weigh in. Would you prefer Warner stay on track for Man of Steel 2 and then Justice League by 2015? Or would you rather see a Batman-Superman film soon? Please watch the video to get Tim's full take and then leave a comment to let us know what you think.
