Henry Cavill’s Manager Confirms ‘Man Of Steel 2’ Is In Development

superman man of steel 2

Reported first from Heroic Hollywood’s own founder Umberto Gonzalez, Man of Steel 2 is currently in development and now Henry Cavill’s manager has spoken up to confirm the scoop. His manager, Dany Garcia, confirmed this in a recent interview with Newsweek where she states that among Cavill’s current projects is his second stand alone Superman film.

Check out the quote below:

“Henry has a big appetite. We’ve been in a five-month period of time where he’s re-strategizing, acquiring property [for his production company Promethean], he’s filming [Justice League] now, he’s in development for the Superman standalone… he’s beginning to expand that world. It’s beautifully teed up. In a year from now, or two years from now, he’s going to be a force globally.”

Cavill has his hands full at the moment with Justice League, but it looks like the solo Superman sequel is just on the horizon.

Justice League: Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy.  Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat.  But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Well, there you have it, Superman fans: official confirmation that Man of Steel 2 is happening! Who’s ready? Make sure to sound off your excitement in the comments!

Jack of some trades, master of some others. That saying never really made a lot of sense to me.

  • Jason Scarpelli

    You mean Man of Steel 3???????????

    • SAMURAI36

      How is this MOS3??

      • Hinscher

        The same as Civil War was a Captain America movie. Sure Tony Stark was in it, but it a continuation of the Cap/Bucky storyline.
        BvS was a continuation of Superman’s story from Man of Steel. Even Batman’s story in this movie was centered completely around Superman.
        It is Man of Steel 2 in all but the name.

        • SAMURAI36

          Silly War was Avengers 2.5. That’s the worst example to use.

          That’s like saying the new Batman solo will be a sequel to BVS as well.

          Technically the idea of “sequels” kinda goes out the window with a shared universe. Any films that proceeds the last one, could be counted as a sequel, especially in the DCEU.

          • Hinscher

            Avengers 2.5 Please. Remove the pointless airport scene and the movie is 100% a captain movie and continuation of Winter Soldier.
            BvS’s entire plotline from teh government to Lex, to Batman, to civilians was 100% all about Superman and how he effects the world. Batman spent the entire movie going about trying to acquire Krytponite, and then killing Superman. Lex Luthor spent the entire movie trying to portray Superman in a bad light and to get him killed or show him as a Fraud. Lois Lane spent the entire movie trying to prove Superman’s innocence. The media spent the entire movie questioning if the world needs a superman. The government spent the whole movie trying to make Superman accountable. Civilians spent the whole movie either hating or loving superman.
            There were only two people in the entire movie that cared at all about Batman. One of them was Superman. The other was Lex using Batman in order to kill superman.
            I mean even Wonder Woman only cared about getting her picture away from Lex.
            I don’t understand how anyone ever thought after seeing the movie that it is a Batman movie, and especially a fter seeing the ultimate cut. The trailers made it seem like a batman movie, and made it seem like Superman was evil. The actual movie though was 100% about Superman and Batman was actually the villain for 90% of the movie.

            If this is double post, I did cause I said a word (he double hockey sticks) and guessing Heroic with their pg rules will block it.

            Really? And here I thought it was about the Sokovia Accords. Actually, that’s precisely what it was about. That was the central point of the story, hence “Civil War”. The WS stuff was a subplot.

            I don’t understand how anyone ever thought after seeing the movie that it is a Batman movie, and especially a fter seeing the ultimate cut. The trailers made it seem like a batman movie, and made it seem like Superman was evil. The actual movie though was 100% about Superman and Batman was actually the villain for 90% of the movie.

            Perhaps because Batman was far more prominent in the film that Superman (or anyone else, for that matter) was.

            As you even outlined, Superman was the subject of the film, but not necessarily the object of it. Most of the film was spent pondering Superman’s place in the world. He had the least lines in the film, as well as far less appearances in the film than the other main characters.

            Thus, it’s unfair to label this a “Superman film”, when he was hardly the main character in the film.

            Mind you, I don’t think this was a bad thing; I often view Superman as a force of nature or a deity, rather than as an actual character. He’s far more interesting to me in that light, which is likely why I enjoyed BVS so much.

            If this is double post, I did cause I said a word (he double hockey sticks) and guessing Heroic with their pg rules will block it.

            Yeah, that’s the worst. HH will even block it if you use the contracted form of “he will”. I spent the better part of an hour, trying to figure out what was wrong with a post the other day.

          • Hinscher

            I though agree with the stop tossing around “sequels”
            But in the regards to story situations, I think it applies. As has been said before BvS was even released. BvS is the second of a trilogy, culminating with Justice League.
            The trilogy to me seems to be a Superman story. You have his introduction in MoS, his internal conflict and the world hating him in BvS. Finally in Justice League, you will have his return and the world loving him.
            Then after Justice League, will this universe finally start. Everything else was sort of a prequel to the shared universe.
            I also think that Captain America Winter Soldier and Civil War are two movies that should be taken as a whole. If I were to want to watch a storyline, I woudl watch those two movies back to back. Wouldn’t care about any other’s inbetween.
            But they better not call MoS2, MoS2. I didn’t mind Iron Man 2 being called as it was seeing as it was directly after Iron Man. (still hate numebring) but MoS2 will have a min of two other movies with superman staring in them before it. No matter what the storyline is of MoS2, it is not a sequel. To much other stuff happened to Superman inbetween them to even consider it a MoS2.

          So by that logic, the next MOS film is a sequel to JL? See how convoluted that gets?

          The trilogy to me seems to be a Superman story. You have his introduction in MoS, his internal conflict and the world hating him in BvS. Finally in Justice League, you will have his return and the world loving him.

          “The world” was already loving him, immediately after his death. Remember, at the end of BVS, and the beginning of SS, the world realized how great and important Superman was?

          Then after Justice League, will this universe finally start. Everything else was sort of a prequel to the shared universe.

          Not sure how you’re arriving at that. The universe started when other characters got introduced. That means BVS was the “dawn” of the DCEU.

          That’s like saying the MCU didn’t begin till after Avengers. That would be a false statement.

          I also think that Captain America Winter Soldier and Civil War are two movies that should be taken as a whole. If I were to want to watch a storyline, I would watch those two movies back to back. Woul dn’t care about any other’s inbetween.

          Even though I don’t really have a dog in the Marvel fight, I couldn’t disagree more. This film was barely about Cap. It was more about Tony than it was about Cap, much in the same way that BVS was more about Batman than it was about Superman, on a personal level.

          The true personal struggle was more for Tony. Cap’s only real struggle, was chasing after his boyfriend for the entire film.

          But they better not call MoS2, MoS2. I didn’t mind Iron Man 2 being called as it was seeing as it was directly after Iron Man.

          IM2 was not directly after IM, in terms of movie chronology. But if that’s indeed the logic you want to go by, then how is JL a sequel to anything Superman-related, when you’ll have at least 3 (probably more) films in between BVS (which you say is the legit sequel to MOS) and whenever another legit MOS sequel comes?

          Besides, if we continue to go by whatever logic is being attempted to be established here, then AOU is a direct sequel to TWS, and Silly War is a direct sequel to AOU.

          (still hate numebring) but MoS2 will have a min of two other movies with superman staring in them before it. No matter what the storyline is of MoS2, it is not a sequel. To much other stuff happened to Superman inbetween them to even consider it a MoS2.

          All the more reason why I’m questioning the logic between this whole “sequel” business to begin with. None of these stories are told in the most linear of fashions.

        • Jason Scarpelli

          This.

          • SAMURAI36

            I already refuted his statement, as per the discussion below.

      • Jason Scarpelli

        Bvs was a direct sequel to Man of Steel

        • SAMURAI36

          So by that logic, WW is a direct sequel to BVS to? And SS was a direct sequel to BVS?

          Furthermore, all these films are sequels to each other.

          • Jason Scarpelli

            “all these films are sequels to each other”…yes they are.

          • SAMURAI36

            Then I don’t get why you are calling it MOS3, then.

          • Jason Scarpelli

            Because it’s a ‘sequel’

          • SAMURAI36

            Correction: I don’t know why you’re calling it “MOS3”, instead of MOS7/8/9.

          • Jason Scarpelli

            Because Superman (cavill) only appeared in 2 films not 7 8 or 0. I never implied future DCEU films with Superman as MOS 3, 4, 5 and so on. Just BvS was a sequel to MOS 1. Future DCEU films aren’t direct sequels just built upon the DCEU main storyline. The DCEU films are a built upon saga, but they aren’t most likely a direct continuation as BvS was of MOS 1. But you never know.

          • SAMURAI36

            Superman will have appeared in 3 films, including JL. So by that logic, wouldn’t that make it MOS4?

            And that’s just the films we know about. We don’t know when/where on the DCEU film slate the next Superman solo film will appear. He could very well appear in a couple more films, before then. Again, I’m just going by the logic that you are laying out here. I’m more than content with a “MOS2” moniker.

            Not to mention, his story was rather furthered (albeit, indirectly so) at the beginning of SS as well.

          • Jason Scarpelli

            Henry Cavill appeared as Superman in 2 films. Being mentioned doesn’t count as an appearance.

          • SAMURAI36

            I’m having trouble following your logic, then. If it’s about Superman’s specific story, then this would be MOS4/5, depending on when the next Superman solo film happens.

            But also by that logic, then the solo Batman film is Batman2/3/whenever the Batman solo film starts, since BVS was his first film, and his story will continue in JL as well.

          • Jason Scarpelli

            Again, Cavill and his interpretation of Superman appeared in TWO films. Making the second solo film (and THIRD appearance in Superman’s DCEU story line). And Suicide Squad just had a brief appearance by Batman so that doesn’t count as Ben Affleck/Batman film. Justice League didn’t come out yet so that doesn’t count neither. The Batman comes out in 2018, and since he didn’t film it yet that doesn’t even count. Therefore 3 for Superman (MOS, BVS and untitled MOS film) and 1 for Batman which is BvS. My 4 year old nephew would even understand.

          • SAMURAI36

            Wait, you’re not serious are you?

            How are you counting the next Superman film when it hasn’t come out yet, but not counting the next Batman film, even though it has not come out yet?

            We’re talking about FUTURE sequels here.

            By the time the Batman solo comes out, his story would have manifested 3 times. (BVS, JL and Batman)

            Does that make the Batman solo = Batman3, yes or no?

          • Jason Scarpelli

            Made a mistake including the second MOS solo film. In a rush getting ready to eat. Meant only MOS and BvS. The Batman in 2018 won’t be a ‘direct’ sequel or whatever to anything. Just a continuation of the DCEU films background in general. Batman 3 would be if BvS picked up from a Batman solo film prior and its story dealt with the entire climatic event from that Batman solo film. Making BvS a sort of sequel to that instead of MOS being the basis. So the answer is no to the last part. These DCEU films are like you said, “All sequels to another” but not in the same way. A film like BvS has a main story that specifically continues from the main events of MOS. JL and future films conjoin equally but aren’t considered sequels. Though BvS’s form of continuation of MOS may or may not happen again.
            I can repeat myself over and over but I won’t, so don’t bother replying for i won’t respond back. I said all I needed to say about this.

          • SAMURAI36

            I don’t think you’re getting what I’m asking, since you keep skipping around the various points I’m making, while not really addressing them.

            For Batman: BVS + JL + Batman Solo = 3 direct Batman stories (we KNOW this, because A) Ben Affleck himself said that the story from JL directly feeds into his Solo Batman film, and B) Batman’s path of redemption continues in JL, and into his solo film).

            For Superman: MOS + BVS + JL + Superman Solo = 4 Superman stories (we KNOW JL is important for Superman, because A) it’s the story where he comes back to life, i.e. directly connected to BVS, and B) the creators involved have said they want to use JL as the springboard of instilling “hope” into the character).

            JL conjoining means little, because if we (begrugdingly) use the MCU as an example, then story-wise, IM3 sprang directly from Avengers. But clearly it’s called IM3, rather than IM4.

            The point I’m making here, is that BVS is a unique circumstance. It neither belongs exclusively to Batman, nor to Superman as solo films. When Batman gets his Trilogy, it won’t include BVS. It will be Batman 1, 2, & 3.

            Same with Superman.

            Feel free to not respond if you wish, but that doesn’t negate the incorrectness of your POV.

      • Jason Scarpelli

        The third film Superman appeared in following a continuous story line. Batman was fighting Superman due to the events in MOS 1. The stories are connected in the DCEU as the MCU films have been since 2008. MOS 1 began the DCEU, continued in BvS and all the solo DCEU films are connected to the Justice League 1 and 2. Without MOS 1 there would be no BvS, no WW, Flash, Aquaman etc…

        • SAMURAI36

          Then by your own admission, when the next Superman solo film does come out, it should be MOS7/8/9/whenever it happens to fall on the revised DCEU film slate.

          I’m sure you see the folly of this line of thinking as well.

    • Ya, this is most definitely not MoS3. Batman v Superman was its own thing. Why would Batman’s name come first in a Superman sequel?

      • SAMURAI36

        Why would Batman’s name come first in a Superman sequel?

        Drop the mic, Josh.

  • Nick Farina

    Been waiting for news on this. Hope they announce a writer/director soon!

  • Radar Technician Matt

    Can’t wait for the title announcement.

  • Captain Cook

    FINALLY !!!

    Love Cavil in Superman……exciting.

  • ClownPrinceOfTroll

    Dc/wb is the only franchise to put out a trioligy of films connected that avg a rotten ratting lmao.. ww and jl are pretty much gurarnteed rotten rating since they are avg 36% score over the last 3 films. How sad is it that the dceu cant even compete with marvels tv verse.. heck they cant even conpete with fox marvel..

    Once dr strange comes out. A total of 3 different conpanies have released a total of 6cbms in 2016. With the two worst rated cbms via metacritic imdb and rt belonging to dc/wb :FACT

    ???

  • Darthmanwe

    Everyone is so hyped up for MoS and Dc movies and such…

    And what drew my attention was: “acquiring property [for his production company Promethean],”

    That means Cavill has his eyes on some good script for a low budget movie, or a medium budget film. Considering his relatively nice range of acting, I’d really like to see him do something different. The “man from UNCLE” left me wanting for more different Cavill performances.

    Psyched to hear this!
