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.
