London: Warner Bros studio has revealed plans for a Superman and Batman face-off in the upcoming `Man of Steel` sequel which will hit the theatres in 2015.

The follow up to `Man of Steel` starring Henry Cavill is being written by director Zack Snyder and will feature Batman, reported Contactmusic.

"I`m so excited to begin working again with Henry Cavill in the world we created, and I can`t wait to expand the DC Universe in this next chapter. Let`s face it, it`s beyond mythological to have Superman and our new Batman facing off, since they are the greatest Super Heroes in the world," he said.

Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production said, "Zack Snyder is an incredibly talented filmmaker, but beyond that, he`s a fan first and he utterly gets this genre. We could not think of anyone better suited to the task of bringing these iconic Super Heroes to the screen in his own way."

The movie is set to begin production in 2014 with a 2015 release date.

Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder will serve as producers while Christopher Nolan, who directed the most recent Batman trilogy, and Emma Thomas are set to executive produce, along with Benjamin Mel-ker and Michael E Uslan.
