I could see Nightwing/Dick Grayson working out, isn't Batman supposed to be older and worn down? Now he has someone to do the heavy lifting for him? There are 4 ladies being mentioned as the female role in this, and I believe olga kurylenko and Jamie ALexander are the 2 known. so far so good.
He is supposed to be older and worn down, which is something that has bothered me since it was said. You just finished a Batman series, why start your new Batman series with Batman in the exact same position as he was in the last Batman movie? Go with Batman in the early to middle part of his career. Give the character (and movie series) some life and longevity. Don't give me broken and beaten from the get-go. I still remember the confusion from Batman Begins not being a prequel to Batman, "didn't The Joker already die in the first one?", and "why isn't Jack Nicholson playing The Joker again?" A Batman that is almost a carbon copy of the last iteration of the character just creates confusion with the non-fanboy, non-internet rumor following segment of the paying public (which is the majority).

They havent even really introduced Clark Kent the diguise character fully yet. Still no lex Luther yet as well. If they are going to rush this like they seem that they are. They should just stamp Justice League on the title instead of a Man of Steel 2 or batman vs Superman sequel. JMO
Excellent point about Clark Kent. There is so much to explore in Superman's existence before we start throwing a half dozen new (major) characters into a Superman sequel. It gives me the impressions that WB continues to feel like Superman isn't going to be the tent pole, high profit franchise they want it to be, so they are scrambling to create a universe that can match The Avengers. Instead, they should take it slow. Build Superman and a new, in his prime, Batman. Work off of The World's Finest. Introduce new characters in their own movies and bring the universe together. Based off Disney/Marvel's high paced schedule, we're probably looking at The Avengers 3 in 2018, followed by a questionable future for the characters and the actors playing those characters. If WB would slow their roll, a JLA movie in 2019 or 2020 would fill that void perfectly. Instead, they want to go warp speed into a JL movie before the DC Universe is even established.
