Greetings! El Presidente here, reporting live from A-Rod's medicine cabinet.
My friends, fanboy hearts have been all a-flutter since Zach Snyder announced at San Diego Comic Con that the sequel to Man of Steel would star both Superman and Batman. Well, fanboys, prepare to have another nerdgasm, because Snyder will be consulting Frank Miller, writer of the greatest Batman comic of all time, for the movie. Of course, I'm talking about All Star Batman and Robin The Boy Wonder, Miller's seminal Batman epic that featured such notable moments as Batman banging Black Canary while narrating, "We keep our masks on. It's better that way," and Wonder Woman calling a guy a "sperm bank." Oh yeah, and Miller wrote The Dark Knight Returns too, but it pales in comparison.
From The Independent:
A source close to Miller, who also has Sin City and 300 sequels in the pipeline, told the Independent: “Frank had no idea the announcement in San Diego was going to happen so it did come as a surprise. He’s going to be meeting up with Zach in the next few days to go over the plans for the Superman film so things should be clearer after that.”
But don't get your hopes up too much, comrades. Miller's work isn't being adapted for the movie. He's just going to offer his advice to Snyder ("they're all whores").
While The Independent has the scoop on Miller's involvement, I would like to point out that they also speculate on Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing Batman in the movie, which is, of course, a point for my scoop tally, as I preemptively predict that Joseph Gordon-Levitt will star in every movie, just to get the jump on everyone.

About the Author - El Presidente
El Presidente gave up his position as President and Prime Minister of Cuba, as well as First Secretary of Cuba's Communist Party, in 2008 in order to concentrate on his true love: Hollywood gossip reporting. Forming the rumor website Cubano Review, El Presidente built a name for himself based on over THREE DOZEN industry credited trade scoops. Unfortunately, capitalist American trade embargoes have rendered CubanoReview.com unreachable from within the United States, forcing El Presidente to syndicate his articles to The Outhouse, which flies under the radar of the American oligarchy thanks to most leaders assuming it is a scat porn site, which, to be fair, is basically true.
