In an interview with SFX, the MAN OF STEEL star says he’d be all for a World’s Finest movie that teamed up Superman with the Dark Knight:
I think it would be really interesting with the age-old Batman/Superman conflict,” he tells SFX, “because they are two different sides of the same coin and their methods are entirely different. And I think it would actually make for an interesting story as to why, first of all, they were going head to head and how. I think that would make a great story.
So that instantly got my mind racing with thoughts of just who would be the Batman opposite Cavill’s Superman?

The gritty adventure begins as Superman learns about the ruthless force known as Brainiac, who has seized and miniaturized Krypton’s capital city of Kandor. (Source)
Now I know most people have a very low opinion of Aquaman based off of how useless he was made to be in the old SUPER-FRIENDS cartoon but that was a poor representation of what is really one of the coolest super-heroes around.
Green Lantern Optimus Prime! Batman Transformer Armor! Wonder Woman’s Invisible Plane as a Transformer! Megatron vs Superman! Drawn by the phenomenal Phil Jiminez!
All of that awesomeness could have been in my grubby little hands except one of the braintrust running DC decided not to do it. To that person or persons I wish all manner of bad juju upon.
Unless of course they change their mind and re-greenlight this project. then I’ll be their bestest friend forever.

Its a shame that Superman, Batman and Aquaman had to wait until their golden years to come out of the closet but at least they seem to be having a good time living together in Florida..
