Default Man of Steel 2

George Miller Reportedly Directing Man Of Steel 2





Superman may get a little furious for his next solo film.
That’s because Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller is rumored to helm Man of Steel 2. The rumor comes from another Superman director, of sorts-- Jon Schnepp, who just released the documentary The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? Appearing on the latest episode of PopCorn Talk, Schnepp said, with confidence, that Mad Max’s Miller would direct Superman's next sequel.



Schnepp didn’t say where he heard the rumor, or add any more to that nugget of information, but it’s an interesting theory nonetheless. Miller is clearly in Warner Bros. good graces with the critical and commercial success of Mad Max: Fury Road, and Man of Steel director Zack Snyder will likely be too busy shepperding the Justice League film franchise to return to Superman. Plus, there’s the tiny detail that Miller was supposed to direct DC’s first attempt at a Justice League movie back in 2008. Perhaps a Man of Steel sequel is Warner Bros.' recompense to Miller?

George Miller Might Direct A DC Movie; But MAN OF STEEL 2 Could Be "On Permanent Hold"

The other day we heard the rumor that Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller was in line to helm Warner Bros.' direct sequel to Man Of Steel, but a new report calls into question when - or even if - that movie will see the light of day. More past the jump...




By all accounts, George Miller is indeed chatting to Warner Bros. about directing one of their DC comic book movies - it just may not be Man Of Steel 2. According to Den Of Geek, Miller is looking at a future DC project but what he settles on will ultimately "depend on what story most interests him, his take on it and everyone's availability."

So while that doesn't rule a Man Of Steel sequel out, it seems more likely the studio would be trying to focus on finding someone to helm one of the movies already on their jam-packed slate. Plus, the site also reports that, from what they've heard, the sequel is actually on "permanent hold", anyway. Does that mean it's been abandoned completely, or it's just not a priority for WB at this moment in time?

From what we understand, the studio is very excited about Ben Affleck's turn as Batman and is already mapping out a trilogy of solo movies focusing on that character - so it's entirely possible ol' Supes has been placed on the back burner for the time being. Hey, maybe Miller will try his hand at the Dark Knight instead.

Zack Snyder Addresses The MAN OF STEEL 2 Rumor That George Miller Could Be Directing


Hit the jump and check out the latest from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder as he now weighs in on the rumors that Mad Max: Fury Road's George Miller could be directing one of the upcoming DC movies, or specifically the Man of Steel sequel.





The director of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the Justice League movies, Zack Snyder, has certainly been making the rounds to promote Doritos' last Super Bowl advertising campaign. During his latest interview with News.Com.Au, the filmmaker addressed rumors that the eventual sequel to his Man of Steel movie may be helmed by Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller.

"George doing one of the DC movies?" said Snyder when asked if he'd be keen on the possibility. "Oh my God, absolutely. George can do anything he wants, in my opinion. We haven’t talked about it, and to be frank I just didn't know what he was thinking of doing next. But yeah, if I was to think he had any interest in them of course I’m happy to talk to him." After praising Fury Road as a "f#cking great movie," he then reasssued the phone is "so open" to Miller if he is interested in directing any of the upcoming installments to the DC Extended Universe. What do you think?

'Brainiac' Rumored For MAN OF STEEL 2; George Miller Said To Be Undecided On Directing


Some juicy rumors relating to Warner Bros.' next solo Superman movie here. Word is George Miller simply hasn't made up his mind about directing the sequel, and has other DC options on the table. Plus, it's possible popular Supes baddie Brainiac is being lined up as the villain...




Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller has been given the pick of the litter at Warners if the following is accurate. According to Heroic Hollywood, the director's chair on the planned Man Of Steel sequel - which apparently hasn't been put on "permanent hold" at all and is on track for a 2019/2020 release - is his for the taking, but Miller simply hasn't made up his mind about what his next project will be.

What has him so unsure? Well, word is the studio also likes him for Justice League Dark/Dark Universe now that Guillermo del Toro is no longer helming.

We might also have some idea which villain Supes will be going up against in his next movie: Brainiac. You may remember Zack Snyder's revealing in an interview that before Man Of Steel 2 became Batman V Superman, the evil extraterrestrial android was being lined up as the antagonist - so he definitely seems like the most logical choice, but obviously without so much as a first script draft down it's all subject to change.

What do you guys make of all this? Would you rather see Miller direct the Man Of Steel sequel, or the mystical heroes of Justice League Dark? Sound off below.

George Miller Denies Man Of Steel 2 Rumors




After the runaway success of Mad Max: Fury Road, fans were excited about rumors that George Miller might come back to the DC Universe after a false start for Justice League. Rumors said Miller was moving, or being moved to, directing Man of Steel 2, a stand-alone Superman movie.
Well, too bad, DC fans (and not just because no such movie is currently on any public Warner Bros schedule).
"I hope the next film I make is a very, very small film without any special effects and not many stunts," he told Digital Spy in an interview supporting Fury Road's home release. "There's been some of that in the mix," Miller said of Man of Steel 2 conversations, "but [the rumors] are probably not true."

Default Superman "Man of Steel" 2

New Superman Standalone Movie Confirmed By Henry Cavill's Management


Earlier this summer, rumors began flying that Superman would be suiting up for another standalone film. Fans last saw the hero feature in a solo flick back in 2013 when Man of Steel hit theaters, leaving fans and critics with mixed feelings. But, now, it looks like those rumors have been proven true. Henry Cavill’s management has confirmed the actor is in development for the much-anticipated sequel.
Speaking with Newsweek, Dany Garcia spoke about her client and said Henry is poised to take Hollywood by storm in a year or two.
“Henry has a big appetite,” she said. “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.”
Of course, many fans are excited to get some official confirmation on the film. The Wrap was the first site to tease rumors about the sequel as a source told them, “Superman is a top priority for the studio and getting the character right for audiences is of tantamount importance.” Before that, Warner Bros. also hinted a Superman movie might be in the works when they debuted their future film slate for DC Entertainment and noted the schedule allowed for possible “standalone Batman and Superman films.”
Fans learned that Warner Bros. was eager to pursue those iconic superheroes earlier this year when Ben Affleck confirmed he was working on a solo Batman project with Geoff Johns. Recently, the film has teased some exciting updates as Ben confirmed Deathstroke would be joining the DC Extended Universe in his film courtesy of actor Joe Manganiello.
Following Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it makes sense that Warner Bros. would want to capitalize on the DC Comics all-star. Superman’s popularity surged after the film released, and the character’s inclusion in Justice League has only added to the hero’s hype.
While there is no release date attached to the Superman film as of yet, most assume the film will premiere after the standalone Batman film. Warner Bros. does have two untitled DC film spots on their calendar for 2018 and 2019. Perhaps one of those dates will house the Superman flick?
Sadly, for Zack Snyder, the film will not roll out before Justice League. The director has previously said he wanted Superman to get a sequel before the superhero team hit the big screen.

JURASSIC WORLD 2 Director Juan Antonia Bayona Hopes To Helm MAN OF STEEL Sequel

We still don't know what's happening with the Man of Steel sequel, but Jurassic World 2 director Juan Antonia Bayona has now thrown his name into the hat to take over Superman's solo adventures.


During a Reddit Q&A earlier today, A Monster Calls director Juan Antonia Bayona was asked about his dream film, and surprisingly (given how many acclaimed directors appear to scoff at the prospect of helming a superhero movie) he chose Superman. Will it happen? Well, with Jurassic World 2 in the pipeline, he's going to be busy for a while, but Warner Bros. might just want some fresh blood.

"The first movie I saw in my life was Superman. I was three years old. The first memory I had was Christopher Reeve flying in the suit. Directing a Superman film would be great," he revealed. "I always wanted to be Superman. That's the film that made me want to become a director." Later in the Q&A, the filmmaker added that the 1978 original was, "the first one I saw in my life and defines my whole career." Superman clearly means a lot to him then, so it would be great to see him get a chance with the hero. Ultimately, that will depend on whether Zack Snyder returns for Man of Steel 2!

The character's franchise wouldn't suffer from having some fresh blood behind the camera, and a superfan (no pun intended) like Bayona working on it would be no bad thing. Before that, Henry Cavill's Superman will return in Justice League, so we'll have to wait and see how that sets up his future.

Warner Bros. Is Looking at Matthew Vaughn to Direct a New Superman Movie





A sequel to Man of Steel has long been expected, but there hasn’t been much news about it thus far. Last we heard, the DC film was in “active development,” but that was eight months ago. Now we know that Warner Bros. has its eye on a certain comic book director to bring Superman back to the big screen.

His name is Matthew Vaughn. You know him as the director of Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class, and Kingsman: The Secret Service. He’s currently finishing Kingsman: The Golden Circle for a fall release—and Collider first reported he’s at the top of Warner Bros. list to direct Man of Steel 2. We’ve also heard this is true, and in addition that the film may not be a direct sequel to Zack Snyder’s 2013 film. It could potentially be more of a soft reboot or reimagining, though nothing has been decided. Either way, the wheels are spinning.
Collider also points out that while preliminary talks have happened, this is not a done deal by any means. Vaughn is just someone the studio would like to work with; he loves the character and he’s considering it. Plus, if he doesn’t do Superman, they’d be interested in him directing something else. Warner Bros. did not comment.






You may recall this isn’t the first time Vaughn has had a run-in with Superman. Back before Man of Steel came out, the director spoke to Warner Bros. executives about the character, but it didn’t pan out. Instead, they went with the David Goyer/Christopher Nolan/Zack Snyder vision. But Vaughn did say this about his take, which is very telling:
I think that’s the one thing not to do with Superman, trying to do the serious The Dark Knight version. Superman is about color and fun, or it should be, for me.
So if Vaughn still feels that way, maybe it suggests Warner Bros. is ready to start pushing that dark, Snyder vision out of the way as long rumored. Maybe they want Vaughn’s colorful, boisterous vision. And maybe, like we said, this will be less a Man of Steel sequel and more a reboot of the character as a whole. The opportunity is right there considering he’s, well, dead at the moment. A Justice League resurrection could surely put the character into a whole new headspace.
A new Superman movie is just one of at least 17 (yes, 17) DC movies that are in various stages of development. It’s near the bottom in terms of progress, but the search for a director suggests it could start jumping over the other films soon.

Hey DC, Give Patty Jenkins Man Of Steel 2








Back in 2013, Zack Snyder's Man of Steel marked the beginnings of the new cinematic adventures of Superman. Sure, it may not have been the movie everyone would have expected, but there were still some shades of the character we'd all grown up knowing and loving. But as time has passed in the DC Extended Universe, with films like Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad repping the brand, the franchise caught a mixed bag of criticisms. Luckily now, there's a new hero in the DCEU. You can feel it in the successful triumph of character over spectacle in Wonder Woman, as director Patty Jenkins reinvigorated the world of gods and humanity in her own special way. With this in mind, the path for the land of the Justice League is clear: Ms. Jenkins should be given that chance to clean up the streets of Metropolis in Man of Steel 2.


The big reason that Man of Steel 2 should be going into Jenkins' skilled hands is the fact that she's done what other directors in the new DCEU haven't: she valued the quiet moments, and played out action as well as she does exposition. While it's true that Wonder Woman itself has some narrative flaws, as well as some nitpick worthy quandaries in its finished product, the film overcomes those aspects with the fact that you really like the heroes, and want to spend more time with them. Of course, most of that could be attributed to the writers, and we'd be remiss if we didn't mention that Zack Snyder was one of the initial architects of the film's story.


Which leads us to the fact that while Patty Jenkins may not have written the story for Wonder Woman, she did breathe life into it. Everything from the actual color palette her film uses, to the lush, period-friendly costuming and even the framing of the action beats, shows that Jenkins has as fantastic of an eye for visuals as she does for story. And just because she didn't lift a pen doesn't mean she didn't have a hand in the actual shaping of the story, as she was still the person to select the director of photography, editor, and even the film's musical composer, ultimately shaping the intent of those words into what we saw before our very eyes.


Now it's easy to say that Patty Jenkins should be focused on directing Wonder Woman 2, or even that she should be brought on to replace David Ayer in Gotham City Sirens. Hell, a very compelling case could be made for giving Jenkins the reins to the entire DCEU film series. But with both of those previously mentioned films not being an immediate going concern, and with Superman being one of DC's most valued trinity of heroes in this film universe, the fact remains that his "new" image severely needs some rehabbing. Much like Ben Affleck and Matt Reeves will shepherd in a new age of The Batman, Patty Jenkins should usher in the renaissance of Clark Kent and his heroic alter ego.


But perhaps the best part of handing Man of Steel 2 to Ms. Jenkins and her team is the fact that she can also rehab the image of a similarly important character in the DC Universe. With Amy Adams' Lois Lane being similarly mishandled in the previous films she's been involved in, you can be assured that Jenkins' skills would make an actual character out of the walking cliché that Lois has become after Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Also, to have Adams working alongside Jenkins gives us potential goosebumps, considering that she not only brought a pretty powerful performance out of Wonder Woman's Gal Gadot, but she also nabbed Charlize Theron an Academy Award with their collaboration on Monster. Patty Jenkins understands the importance of strong female leads, much like she understands the importance of storytelling, and could be a good fit with the portrayal of Lois Lane, as well.


Of course, should DC and Warner Bros. offer Jenkins the job, and should she accept, the potentially amazing Man of Steel 2 could be her ticket to helping rule the DCEU roost. Wonder Woman is a solid as hell audition that shows her directorial powers are more than comfortable in the world of large budget storytelling, so it's really not a matter of if she should be returning to the comic book parade, but when. Ideally, she'd be back very soon to bring to life another four panel epic in living, live action color, and if we're fortunate enough to see such a thing happen so soon, let's hope that Superman and Lois Lane get their chance to shine again under Patty Jenkins' watchful eye.

Patty Jenkins On Man of Steel 2?






We already know that Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins loves Superman, and now a bit of speculation hits the net that Patty Jenkins could possibly be directing Man of Steel 2.
It's pointed out by Redditors that in a recent interview, Amy Adams, who plays Lois Lane in the DCEU, says she looks forward to working with Patty Jenkins.
One [director] that I am really looking forward to working with is Patty Jenkins, who just director Wonder Woman. I'm lucky enough to know Gal Gadot, she's amazing and she speaks very highly of Patty.
While Patty Jenkins previously did state she is happy just doing Wonder Woman, Patty Jenkins also did say she would be open to anything in the DCEU.
After watching Wonder Woman myself, I couldn't help but think that I was watching a Superman movie, so I think Patty Jenkins would be a great choice to director Man of Steel 2.
Of course, it's entirely possible that if Amy Adams statement is to mean she is definitely working with Patty Jenkins, that we could see Lois Lane in Wonder Woman 2, which is expected to be announced Saturday at Comic-Con.
Another possibility is that Amy Adams and Patty Jenkins could always work together on a separate project outside of the DCEU.
I wouldn't mind having Patty Jenkins directing both Man of Steel 2 and Wonder Woman 2.

Matthew Vaughn Confirms 'Man of Steel' Sequel Talks



Man of Steel is getting a sequel at some point in the future, and it looks like DC and Warner Bros. have their sights set on an already-successful comic movie director to give Superman some new life.
After rumors that the studio was interested in Kingsman director Matthew Vaughn, the filmmaker has confirmed that the conversations are indeed taking place.
While speaking with Hey U Guys at the press junket for Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Vaughn was asked about his potential involvement with Man of Steel 2. Fortunately, Vaughn had the response we were all hoping for.
"I am planning another Kingsman, I've written the treatment and some of the scenes," Vaughn said of his upcoming slate. "I don't know what I'm going to do next, but I have had chats about Superman, I love Superman."
Vaughn has always had a more colorful and exciting tone to his comic films, which is what fans are hoping for in the Man of Steel sequel.
Hopefully, as the DCEU continues to move forward, a decision will be made about who will get placed in the Superman director's chair sooner rather than later. With the Kingsman sequel finally being released later this month, there's a possibility Vaughn could have had more than just conversations. It's not uncommon for big announcements like that to come after the previous project has already been released.

Matthew Vaughn Wants to Bring Back Classic Superman in 'Man of Steel 2'




Director Matthew Vaughn is about to launch Kingsman: The Golden Circle (his first sequel ever) in theaters; however fans are already buzzing about the rumor that Vaughn could be a candidate to direct Warner Bros. Superman sequel, Man of Steel 2.
In a recent interview with Collider, Vaughn opened up to tease his vision of a Superman movie, which you can read below:




“Weirdly if I did do Superman—and I made the mistake of telling someone yesterday I have spoken about it and then wallop (laughs)—I think my main take would be, it’s really boring but make a Superman film. I just don’t feel a proper Superman—I think Donner did it to perfection for that time. Just doing the modern—I wanna do a modern version of the Donner [version]. Go back to the source material… For me Superman is color, feel-good, heroic. He’s a beacon of light in darkness. And that’s what I think Superman should be.”
That's a description that's likely to start a wave of fan campaigning and petitioning for Vaughn to get the job. For every fan who is sick of the violent and somber Superman of the current DC Extended Universe run, this will sound like the much-needed cure.


Nicolas Cage and Tim Burton failed to bring a 'beacon of hope' Superman story to the screen in failed Superman Lives project, while director Bryan Singer couldn't quite transport the Donner-era Superman into modern times with Superman Returns. Zack Snyder tried to reinvent the character with gritty outsider angst for Man of Steel - but no one has really cracked the code of conveying what the Superman ideal looks and feels like in the darker and more complicated modern age.
While it's easy for Vaughn to speak of that ideal, it's harder to actually pull it off - especially with the prior stumbles of DC Extended Universe films like Man of Steel and Batman v Superman already on the scorecard. However, as we've already pointed out, there's room for Justice League to present Superman in a traditional light of hope and optimism - a figurative second life to go along with his literal resurrection.

If Matthew Vaughn Does Direct MAN OF STEEL 2, Will Writer Jane Goldman Join Him?

Director Matthew Vaughn has collaborated with writer Jane Goldman on a number of projects but if he does take on the Man of Steel sequel will she join him? Hit the jump to find out what she has to say...



Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman have worked together on everything from X-Men: First Class to Kick-Ass and Kingsman: The Golden Circle but would she join the director if he ends up taking the helm of Man of Steel 2? In a new interview, the writer revealed that while she's talked to Vaughn about Kingsman 3, she probably won't end up helping him with whatever his take on Superman might be.

"It’s brewing…we’ve been chatting about [Kingsman 3] a lot," Goldman confirms in the video below while chatting to HeyUGuys. "I feel like I’m not personally in a superhero phase right now but I think Matthew would be a brilliant director for it but I think there might already be a script for Superman so I guess he would be getting involved as director but I don’t know, if he is at all – I have no idea."

While that's not confirmation that a script has been written, it sounds like Warner Bros. may have at least a rough draft to work off as Vaughn must have at least discussed the possibility with her!

These two do make quite the team but based on some of the backlash Vaughn's movies have faced in the past, he might be better off concentrating on the directing side of things. However, based on his recent remarks about what he'd like to do with Superman, it's likely he'll take at least one pass at the script...if he winds up directing it, of course! What do you think? Share your thoughts down below.

Henry Cavill Is Under Contract To Play Superman Again




X



While there continues to be some debate over whether Ben Affleck will don Batman’s cape and cowl again after Justice League, it seems that the DC Extended Universe’s Man of Steel is locked in for at least one more movie.
In an interview with the LA Times, Henry Cavill confirmed that he is under contract for to appear as Superman in at least one more DC Extended Universe movie. Cavill says he looks forward to whatever film comes next, be it a solo Superman sequel to Man of Steel or a Justice League sequel, as an opportunity to improve upon his depiction of Superman in previous films.
“There’s a wonderful opportunity to tell the Superman story,” he says. “Now there is a fantastic chance to show Superman in his full colors and tell a very complex, character-driven movie that is based on story and have that wonderful sensation of hope and happiness. A feel-good movie with lessons laced in there as well.”
Cavill is describing a movie that would see a more confident version Cavill’s Superman than has been seen in the DC Extended Universe so far. Man of Steel was an origin story in which Superman was trying to figure out what role he should play in the world of humans. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice saw Superman sharing the spotlight with the Dark Knight and cast in the shadow of the Battle of Metropolis that concluded Man of Steel.
Now having died in Batman v Superman and been resurrected in Justice League, Superman’s creation myth is complete. He is now free to be the fully-formed paragon that exists in collective pop culture consciousness.
During a Justice League press event, Cavill explained how Superman has already changed his former foe and now founder of the Justice League, Batman.
"Superman to the League is a, he has a sense of what is missing," Cavill said. "He has completely changed Batman's perspective of these characters with special abilities and powers."

Here's An Update On Where Things Currently Stand With Warner Bros.' MAN OF STEEL Sequel

With rumours swirling about the status of Man of Steel 2, a new report claims to shed some light on where things stand and it sounds like an announcement may finally be on the horizon. Check it out...




Superman may have looked awful in Justice League after Warner Bros. gave Henry Cavill a CGI mouth to hide his Mission: Impossible moustache but an argument could be made that we still got the best big screen take on the hero for quite some time. Despite that, there's still no sign of the Man of Steel sequel and a new report claims that Warner Bros.' original plan was to announce that this month.

That's because the response to the character at test screenings was overwhelmingly positive and the studio was hoping to ride a similar amount of positivity from Justice League into its announcement.

Unfortunately, Justice League bombed and the majority of moviegoers became fixated on how terrible his CGI mouth looked. As a result, Warner Bros. has reportedly decided to hold off on the announcement but the plan is still to unveil the movie - which won't be titled Man of Steel 2 - with a release date and director "pretty soon." When exactly that will be obviously remains to be seen.

Still, this is a somewhat positive update and it's good to know that the movie is still in the works. With any luck, Matthew Vaughn will ultimately decide to direct but we'll just have to wait and see...

Man of Steel 2

Chris McQuarrie also revealed to Comic Book that he and Henry Cavill had discussions about Man of Steel 2 on the set of Mission: Impossible - Fallout.
We had a lot of time hanging out on set, and Henry’s a huge fan of Superman. I can’t help but talk story to people, so he told me his take on Superman and I thought it was really great, and I gave him my two cents. The tweet you’re referring to is somebody asked ‘Would you do it?’ and I said ‘Hey, they know where to find me.’ Nobody’s asked, but you know…’

MAN OF STEEL 2 Rumored To Be Taking Aim At A 2020 Release

There have been rumblings about a Man of Steel sequel for quite some time and according to one new report, Warner Bros. may be looking at bringing Superman back to the big screen two years from now...




There's still no official word on Man of Steel 2 but over the past year or so, we've heard that directors like Matthew Vaughn (Kingsman: The Golden Circle) and Christopher McQuarrie (Mission: Impossible - Fallout) may be considering taking the helm and Henry Cavill has repeatedly teased that there could be big news on the way for Superman fans. Could a new rumour reveal what that's going to be, though?

Well, take this with a pinch of salt for now but Mario-Francisco Robles claims that sources at Warner Bros.has told him that the current plan is for the Man of Steel sequel to hit theaters in 2020. If true, that would mean the movie will need to start production late this year/early 2019 so we could end up getting some news at Comic-Con in July, especially as Warner Bros. can steal the show from Marvel.

Kevin Feige has already confirmed that they're giving the event a miss this year in order to let Avengers: Infinity War settle in so announcing a new Superman movie would definitely people talking. What do you guys think? As always, be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments section.

Man of Steel 2 Rumor: Announcement Coming Soon (But Maybe Not at SDCC)




DC and Warner Bros. could be announcing Man of Steel 2 sooner rather than later, though confirmation of the sequel may not arrive until after San Diego Comic-Con next month. Superman (Henry Cavill) was last seen in Justice League. Newly resurrected, and CGI-assisted, he was gearing up to race The Flash (Ezra Miller) to determine the fate of brunch.
Since then, confirmed details have been scarce as to when - if at all - Cavill would don the cape again. It's no secret that both Man of Steel and Batman V Superman received mixed reviews and proved divisive amongst audiences. Still, that hasn't stopped the actor from receiving a legion of fans who are eager to see him return - especially with Justice League establishing the character as more akin to his comic book persona.

Cavill himself can next be seen antagonizing Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible - Fallout. Adding another franchise under his belt, his star continues to rise in Hollywood. Despite that, his schedule over the next few years remains pretty clear. According to Revenge of the Fans EIC Mario-Francisco Robles on the El Fanboy Podcast, that could be due to production on a Man of Steel sequel looming on the horizon. As explained by Robles, Warner Bros. wants Cavill to be part of their panel at San Diego Comic-Con next month. While that could mean they announce Man of Steel 2, Cavill might instead by used to introduce a Shazam! trailer. Further, Robles says Warner Bros. might be waiting until Mission: Impossible - Fallout debuts, to see whether it helps Cavill's star rise, before giving the Man of Steel sequel the green light.




The actor recently added fuel to the idea of a Man of Steel sequel with a post on Instagram. Hitting the gym with a vengeance, Cavill stated that he is "working on the Super Buns!" and hinted that fans may see him squeeze them into the famous blue outfit in the near future. The search for a director wouldn't even take long, with Chris McQuarrie on standby if required.

Of course, as indicated by Robles, this could just be Cavill working up to an appearance at San Diego Comic-Con, where news and trailers of DCEU films are sure to be released. An Aquaman trailer is already confirmed to debut. If Cavill does introduce the Shazam! trailer, despite director David F. Sandberg teasing his own appearance at SDCC, it certainly makes sense. There have been rumors of Superman showing up in Shazam!, after all. Should Billy Batson need assistance learning the superhero ropes in his Shazam persona, you couldn't get a better role model that Superman.

This could be why Cavill seems intent on taking comical jabs at Dwayne Johnson on social media. Set to play the villainous Black Adam in the DCEU, rumors have always been rife that Johnson will appear in Shazam! in one capacity or another, pitting he and Cavill on opposite ends of the heroic spectrum. Still, if indeed Warner Bros. really wants Man of Steel 2 to hit theaters in 2020, we should know one way or another before too long, whether it's announced at SDCC or a little later this year.

Henry Cavill On When His Superman Sequel Will Drop





It’s been years since Henry Cavill first stepped into his super suit, but Superman is no stranger to theaters. The actor has brought Clark Kent to life in a number of films, and the actor just teased fans on the icon’s next solo outing.
Recently, Erik Davis sat down with Cavill during the star’s press tour for Mission: Impossible. It was there the Fandango liaison got a scoop out of Cavill about his long-awaited Superman sequel.


When asked when the next Superman movie will go live, Cavill had this to say: ““I can say this... it is highly likely we will see another Superman movie somewhere between 2019 and 2045.”

Walked into my interview with Henry Cavill for #MissionImpossibleFallout and for the first time ever a star asked to take a selfie with me. Curious to see where that pops up. And yes, I did ask for an oral history of the arm-loading shot pic.twitter.com/6Si1dbP8h3

I asked Henry Cavill when we’ll see another Superman movie: “I can say this... it is highly likely we will see another Superman movie somewhere between 2019 and 2045.”

So, there you go. Cavill is confident the project will go live. However, it doesn’t seem the actor knows exactly when such a sequel will drop.

Of course, Cavill wants the film to happen as much as fans do. Man of Steel dates all the way back to 2013, so it has been about 5 years since the DCEU welcomed a solo Superman flick. So, when the hero returns, Cavill had said he’d like to do a direct sequel to Man of Steel.
“It is very much in my desire to do a Man of Steel 2, a direct sequel to Man of Steel, and there is a whole bunch of Superman story that I want to tell. There is a whole style of Superman’s character that I’m very keen to tell and I’m looking forward to the opportunity,” the actor told Collider not long ago.


“I’m having a lot of conversations, behind-the-scenes, with certain people and we will hopefully be having conversations with other people who are also behind-the-scenes to make things start happening.”

So far, there is no set release date for the DCEU’s next Superman outing, and it does not have a director yet either. In the past, talent like George Miller have been reportedly attached to the Man of Steel sequel, but they have since been shot down. Most recently, Matthew Vaughn confirmed he’d been talking with Warner Bros. about the project, but the studio has yet to announce an official director for the Superman venture.

Henry Cavill Reveals Which Superman Story He Wants To Adapt


The Mission: Impossible - Fallout press tour is bringing some Man of Steel chatter out of Henry Cavill, including which Superman story he would like to adapt next.
Cavill opened up recently, revealing which story he hopes to see should a sequel to his 2013 Man of Steel movie come along and it is 2004's Superman: For Tomorrow. Cavill says the story is “one of my favourite comic books. I would definitely like to tell a story like that."

Written by Brian Azzarello and pencilled by Jim Lee, the For Tomorrow story begins after one million people are mysteriously wiped away from existence. It becomes Superman's duty to find out what happened to them, while also dealing with losing his wife Lois Lane to the event. At the same time, he is forced to deal with his own guilt of failing to prevent the disaster from happening, in the first place.

"There's an opportunity to keep on telling Superman stories, and getting them exactly right," Cavill told Square Mile. "Showing the things like hope and joy and that wonderful power of his to make people believe in themselves.”

If Man of Steel doesn't come to life any time soon, the idea of producing it under his own Prometheus Productions (a company Cavill formed with his brother Charlie and close friend Ben Blankenship) is an interesting notion.

“We wanted to create a company which was obviously great at telling stories but was very much running on the lines of integrity and honour and fairness," Cavill said, echoing sentiments of the DC Comics super hero he has now portrayed on the big screen three times in five years.

Cavill may or may not appear in Shazam!, which is slated for release in early 2019 and will offer up a first look at San Diego Comic Con later this month. His director on Mission: Impossible - Fallout, Christopher McQuarrie, has ideas of his own for a potential Man of Steel sequel, which he has discussed with Cavill.

"Henry Cavill knows what it would be like. We had a a lot of time hanging out on set, and Henry's a huge fan of Superman," McQuarrie told ComicBook.com. "I can't help but talk story to people, so he told me his take on Superman and I thought it was really great, and I gave him my two cents. The tweet you're referring to is somebody asked 'Would you do it?' and I said 'Hey, they know where to find me.' Nobody's asked, but you know..."

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE Star Henry Cavill Reveals Which Villain He Wants To See In MAN OF STEEL 2

Justice League star Henry Cavill is currently doing the rounds to promote Mission: Impossible - Fallout and the actor has now revealed which comic book villain he wants Superman to square off with next...


There has to be at least a slim chance that Henry Cavill will appear at Comic-Con this weekend to make Man of Steel 2 official, especially as comic book fans have made it clear to Warner Bros. that they're anxious to see more of Superman on the big screen. We've been waiting since the first movie was released in 2013 for another instalment and Henry Cavill has a lot of big ideas about the sequel.

As if right now, it has neither a writer nor director but who knows what's happening behind the scenes at Warner Bros. Regardless, the Mission: Impossible - Fallout star knows he wants as the lead villain!

"I think a great villain would be Brainiac, that'd be a good villain to play against," he revealed before elaborating on why he thinks he would be a good pick for Man of Steel 2. "Brainiac's a big threat. There's a lot of fun. There's a lot of storylines to him." There's no denying that and it's fair to say that the big screen potential of the character is huge. What do you guys think? Share your thoughts below.
