Next year Nolan's Man of Steel will be released. Can't wait for that either, although some of the casting is odd:
Henry Cavill as Superman/Kent (a british Superman to match Bale's british Batman?)
Russell Crowe as Jor-El (really? Why?)
Amy Adams as Lois Lane (will wait and see)
Laurence Fishburne as Perry White (might work)
Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Clark Kent's adoptive parents (I adore Diane Lane and always will .. yum... but Kevin Costner makes me want to vomit in anything he does... most overrated actor of eternity)
If this comes anywhere close to the Dark Night series, then it will be special.
p.s. Michael Shannon as General Zod should be awesome. (He plays FBI agent Nelson Van Alden on Boardwalk Empire in one of the more compelling roles on that somewhat overrated HBO series)
I too am a huge Nolan fan (I don't believe I've come across someone who isn't to be honest though), but a word of precaution:
Man of Steel is not directed by, co-written by, nor casted by Chris Nolan. He is simply a producer.
Obviously for Nolan to put his money and reputation on the line, it's got to be good...but I'm not expecting anything that comes close to the Batman trilogy.
