A sequel to last month's hit "Superman" film "Man of Steel" will feature two of the best-known superheros in the DC universe - Superman and Batman - facing off against each other, director Zack Snyder said on Saturday.

Warner Bros. confirmed that British actor Henry Cavill will reprise the role of Superman in the sequel. However, there has been no word on who will play Batman, as Bale has previously shot down rumors that he would play the role again.

Snyder said the two heroes would be fighting each other. "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."

According to entertainment business analysts Entgroup, "Man of Steel" grossed a total of $58.7 million (360.36 million yuan) in the Chinese mainland.

The film is slated for release in summer 2015.
