Doh! Batman vs. Superman Shelved for Iliad Pic
  A blind poet from ancient Greece is Batman and Superman's newest enemy. The Hollywood Reporter says Wolfgang Petersen has put "Batman vs. Superman" on the back burner so he can direct "Troy," an adventure epic based on Homer's "Iliad."

The Reporter says Petersen will continue to develop the anticipated grudge match between Batman and Superman, but his primary efforts will be aimed at releasing "Troy" in 2004.

Batman vs. Superman: Let's Get It On
  Wolfgang Petersen ("The Perfect Storm") will direct "Batman vs. Superman," reports Variety. Slated for a 2004 release, the film will focus on the conflicting philosophies of goody-boy Superman and bad-ass Batman.

The film is outside the realm of both the "Batman" and "Superman" franchises and has nothing to do with other standalone projects like Darren Aronofsky's "Batman: Year One" or McG's "Superman."

Casting for "Batman vs. Superman" has yet to begin, but Petersen says Matt Damon is the type of actor he's looking for. Damon, Petersen says, is "an interesting action man and a hell of an actor."
