Update 10/05/15 04:55 PM: Though all signs previously pointed to Michael Uslan's big NYCC announcement having something to do with his involvement in the Batman film franchise, it now seems as though it will have something to do with T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents.

Uslan is now listed as a member of a panel centered on T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents taking place at 1:45 PM Saturday in room 1A24 of the Javits Center. Also listed on the panel are several other film producers and screenwriters, leading to the possibility that the panel could come with an announcement of a T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents film entering production.

T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents tells the story of a team of government sponsored superheroes whose powers come with dire consequences. 

Original Story: Michael Uslan has been the executive producer of every Batman film since Tim Burton's groundbreaking 1989 blockbuster. Now, as he works on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the man behind the Bat has teased a "major announcement" coming at New York Comic Con next week.

"On Saturday October 10 we plan on making a major announcement. Stay tuned," Uslan told the Fan Theory podcast. "Join us at 1:45 p.m. in one of the large rooms. You won't want to miss what's going to take place there."

Exactly which panel he's referencing isn't clear - there aren't many options that would fit with an announcement from Uslan running at that time. Most likely, the panel he's referring to is "Batman: The Bat Universe," which takes place starting on Saturday, October 10, on the Empire Stage of the Javits Center.

Also in question is the exact nature of Uslan's announcement; he is involved with not only Batman v Superman, but also several other DC projects including, potentially, unnannounced movies. Maybe it'll tie back to those rumors about Geoff Johns and Ben Affleck collaborating on a Batman film from all the way back at Comic-Con International: San Diego.

New York Comic Con runs from October 8-11 2015 at the Javits Center in New York City. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters March 25, 2016.
