‘Man Of Steel’ Sequel In Development

image

Even though the next time we see The Man of Steel will be in 2017’s Justice League, new reports have surfaced stating that Superhero Team-Up won’t be the last time we see Superman. The Wrap has revealed that Man of Steel will finally get a legitimate sequel.

There is no word on who is involved or when it’s expected to hit theaters, but I’d expect it sometime before 2020. The last time Superman had a standalone film, it was the center of controversy and mixed reviews. We can only hope that we get an amazing production team on this one. With Geoff Johns steering the DC Films ship this could be something special.

Are you all excited to get a Man of Steel sequel? Sound off in the comments section!

You can catch Henry Cavill’s latest performance as Superman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice currently on DVD and Blu-Ray and in Justice League when it hits theaters November 17th, 2017!

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.

    YESSSSSS!!! I hopehopehope the movie will be inspired by John Byrne’s Man of Steel/Action Comics/Superman run in the mid-80s. That’s still my favorite rendition of Superman, ever, right beside Alex Ross/Mark Waid’s version in Kingdom Come.

  • Oklems

    Sweet!! can’t wait.

    • KelVintage

      Please make this happen WB!

  • Carl

    I’m not surprised. As long as Snyder isn’t involved then there is hope for this movie.

    • Splinter76

      Agreed. Keep Snyder far, faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar away from this sequel. We may actually, finally have a great cinematic Superman that – I believe – Cavill can deliver if he’s given the right story and the right direction.

  • Nick Farina

    About freaking time!! Hopefully they land a top notch writer & director.

    • Boogie

      lol

      • Nick Farina

        Good point.

        • SAMURAI36

          It was? I failed to miss what his “point” was.

          • xxjinzaxx

            It’s not an LOL.

            It’s the topview of a stick figure man running with open arms towards the news of a new Superman movie.

          • SAMURAI36

            LMAO.

        • Boogie

          lol

    • flavortang

      Of course WB will. They have no drought of talent over there.

      • Nick Farina

        Having Geoff Johns heavily involved in story-boarding certainly won’t hurt!

  • JNAZ

    Yesss! Maybe George Miller will be all rested up and ready to direct another big movie by then!

  • Darthmanwe

    Is there any chance this is just a rumor perpetrated by Warner execs to shut fans up who have been screaming because they didn’t do a Mos2 before doing BvS?

    It feels like a PR move, than a legitimate production.

    • SAMURAI36

      Umm, no. A MOS sequel has been in the works for at least a year now. Scott Snyder was rumored to have turned in a script for it, & George Miller has been attached to it for awhile now.

      • xxjinzaxx

        Damn. That’s exciting news. Umberto should recap all of that info (and more if he’s got it), then summarize it for us.

      • Axxell

        A MOS sequel has been in the works for at least a year now. Scott Snyder was rumored to have turned in a script for it, & George Miller has been attached to it for awhile now.

        Explains why all these movies are half-baked – guess they couldn’t concentrate on the movie they had in front of them enough that they had to start working on a script for a movie that isn’t even on the schedule…

        • Joey Wabi-Sabi

          Ohhhh so an entire movie studio is only supposed to work on ONE movie at a time? They’re not allowed to work on multiple scripts at the same time? Is that how you properly build an interconnected shared movie universe? By working on ONE movie at a time every few years? Is that how the fast-paced world of Hollywood works? So just because ZACK Snyder is working on a movie, that means SCOTT Snyder shouldn’t be working on any movie scripts of his own?

          Man that’s gotta be one of the dumbest opinions I’ve EVER read (and that includes all of the made-up nonsense that comes out of Sega Saturn Carl and Marquis de Troll).

          • Axxell

            My mistake…I mixed up Scott Snyder with Zack Snyder.

          • Joey Wabi-Sabi

            Lol even still….one Director can still multitask. I’m sure Zack Snyder was thinking about Justice League and working on it in some way even while he was still filming BvS. Completely normal since they’re building a connected universe and need to plan things ahead.

          • Axxell

            That may be so… But I doubt he can put out a quality product working on more than one movie at a time, much less 3 (which is what I thought he was implying)

  • Plays With Squirrels

    Does Umberto not run this site anymore?

    • SAMURAI36

      I could be wrong, but the word is, he defected to The Wrap.

      • Shawn Micheal Madden

        Umberto is still here. Just because Wolverine was one of the X-Men, doesn’t mean he can’t be part of X-Force too. ?

        • SAMURAI36

          Fair enough. It’s just that his presence is felt less & less these days.

        • SAMURAI36

          So wait, which site is X-Men, & which is X-Force?

        • Marquis de Sade

          When is he bringing back his Heroic Hollywood You Tube channel?

          • Shawn Micheal Madden

            All I can say on that one is: stay tuned.

      • Plays With Squirrels

        I wondered as he wrote the exclusive for The Wrap but according to the ‘About Us’ he is still the EiC on here.

  • Nothing about any of the current crop of DC movies gives me any hope that this is a good thing.

    • SAMURAI36

      Too bad for you. Run along now.

      • Too bad for all of us, since it would be nice to have watchable movies of characters that we all love. I guess I’m sorry that you seem to like terrible adaptations of them?

        • SAMURAI36

          Oh yeah, insulting my taste; that’ll win the argument for ya.

          Too bad people can’t seem to accept that most people like the DCEU as it is. You’re in the minority, & there is no “we all” in this. It’s just you.

          • What argument? You rolled in acting all condescending when I expressed a simple matter of (correct) taste. I even apologized that you have bad taste in movies. I don’t know how I’m the jerk here.

          • SAMURAI36

            LOL. You’ve got humor. I like that. Mind you, I didn’t say I liked YOU, just that.

            Run along now.

          • JMMagwood

            I’m staying out of the quarrels from now on, but that was funny.

          • SAMURAI36

            No worries, I’m a one many army. Just keep sending the upvotes my way, and I’ll keep bringing the pain.

          • Avery Carter

            Most people like it as it is? Then why doesn’t the box office for MOS and BvS reflect that? They both underperformed. And BvS had a ridiculous drop in its second week. It then went on to not reach a billion dollars which should’ve been like the minimum for the movie. Its not just critics. These movies are getting toxic word of mouth which is keeping people away from it and making it so there are much less repeat viewings.

          • SAMURAI36

            Ah yes, the “box office” argument. Because almost $900M is an unabashed failure. And making close to $300M in video sales is an unabashed failure. And close to 70% audience ratings across the board, is an unabashed failure.
            DC’s output is persevering, despite the loudmouthed majority. Ty are still making decent money despite the “toxic word of mouth” from the haters, which apparently wasn’t toxic enough.
            AND, the reality is, BVS grossed more than 90% of Marvel’s output (both Disney & non-Disney). Pretty huge accomplishment for such an unabashed failure.
            So feel free to run along now, & peddle that tired, debunked narrative elsewhere, where the rest of the group-think sheeple buy it.

          • Axxell

            Yes, it’s a failure…and DC agrees. That’s why they’re panicking and funding multiple cuts and changing the movie in the middle of filming because they’re not getting the result they expect.

          • Marquis de Sade

            Yeah, I’m so lookin’ forward to Sammy-rai’s fanciful spin next weekend when s.s. b.o. drops a predicted 65 to 75%.

          • Axxell

            Don’t hold your breath; he likely will disappear until it’s time to proclaim Wonder Woman as the film that’s gonna save the DCCU…

    • xxjinzaxx

      I will second what the Samurai says “Run along, now.”

      • SAMURAI36

        Ya know what makes me happy? It’s that a new day is dawning: more & more DC fans are speaking out, whereas before, we were just enduring in silence. It’s a great time to be a DC fan.

        • xxjinzaxx

          Hopefully, they don’t listen to goofy things like *bright* red underwear and Looney Tunes x-overs.

  • Splinter76

    So freaking excited!

    • Neal Caffey

      No Supergirl. They should get Superman’s character right first

  • JMMagwood

    So, what villain would be perfect for a “MoS” sequel post “Justice League”? How about a true attempt at Vandal Savage? Gog?? Atomic Skull???

    • SAMURAI36

      Wow, all great choices. But why not the obvious? Also, while we are getting Darkseid in the JL films, we’ve heard no word about HighFather, and the other New Gods. In the comics, HF chose Supes as his “champion” of sorts. I’d love to see that relationship played out as well in one of these films.

      • JMMagwood

        I’m hoping the New Gods show up during “JL” at some point, so I’d like someone fresh and different for a solo Superman movie. Braniac is pretty irresistible, and knowing Johns, it wouldn’t surprise me to see him.

    • Joey Wabi-Sabi

      I would love Braniac, even though he’s the obvious choice. He’s such a great Superman villain, and I’m glad he wasn’t used for Justice League. I feel Braniac was always an important part of Krypton’s history, so it makes more sense to have him be a part of Superman’s solo story. Especially if they go the route of Braniac being involved with the destruction of Krypton – that would make for a great foe for Superman to battle one-on-one. Whatever villain they go with, I’m just excited we’re getting another Man of Steel movie!

      • JMMagwood

        I’d probably like to get away from Kryptonian linkages at this point, and just let Superman be Superman, if that makes sense. I know Krypton is an important part of who he is, but sometimes it’s okay to let that part of his mythos rest. Where he is simply the hero who carries the movie against a truly awful threat that only he can handle, without a connected backstory. If we get Braniac, and it leads perhaps to the LSH, that would cool beyond words.

  • Neal Caffey

    So much hype, I hope this is the movie Superman needs and deserves. If the rumors of Scott Snyder turning in a script are true that would be great, I loved his Superman: Unchained comic.

    Hopefully they can convince George Miller to come on board to direct and that Geoff Johns has decent involvement in it, he understands the Superman character really well
