5 Reasons Warner Bros. Needs To Fast-Track The ‘Man Of Steel’ Sequel

Previous1 of 6

Henry Cavill Superman Man of SteelSuperman is a pop culture icon. The character was introduced to the masses in 1938. Eventually after radio shows, serials and animated adaptations, Superman became a movie icon following the release 1978’s Superman: The Movie. The seminal superhero film, directed by Richard Donner and starring Christopher Reeve, was followed by three sequels and one spin-off. In 2006, Bryan Singer brought Superman back to the silver screen with Superman Returns. The movie was divisive so it was back to the drawing board for Warner Bros. and DC Comics. Eventually, Zack Snyder was brought on board for the next iteration of Superman: Man of Steel.

Man of Steel was released in 2013 to decent reviews. The movie was a financial hit, but instead of doing a direct sequel, Warner Bros. went with Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. That movie has come and gone and Justice League is on the horizon. Last year, it was also announced that a sequel to Man of Steel was coming along. There has been no word on that movie other than a few rumors here and there. This may be due to the situation that Superman was left in at the end of Batman v Superman, which will be resolved in Justice League.

There are many reasons why Man of Steel deserves a sequel. Here are a few reasons Warner Bros. needs to fast-track the project. Click Next to get started!

    Hopefully they’re well into pre-production and are keeping their cards close to their chest and an announcement will ride on the heals of Supes’ return in JL.

    If not, Geoff Johns needs to get his sh*t together and take better care of the core DC players. Enough with C-List Batman character solo flicks. Give Big Blue the film he and fans deserve.

      Damn right. Who cares about 327283 Joker-verse movies starring Harley Quinn? I want to watch Green Lantern, Batman, Flash, Cyborg and Man of Steel!!!

        DC has this bizarre track record of doubling down on their mistakes. Hence, BvS doubling down on the criticisms in MOS (which I loved), and 9,000 Harley Quinn movies based soley on the financial success of Suicide Squad, a universally panned film and a bloody mess of a narrative. Instead of making sure everything’s done to keep Ben in the Batsuit and getting MOS2 made, it seems all their energies are being focused on these C-List Bat-universe films. Dumb and dumb.

          Superman is…. kinda dead at the time. WB announcing his sequel, while his currently dead, doesn’t make much sense. After his return in JL, watch them announce the release date a week after.
