George Miller directing Justice League Dark

There have been a lot of rumors swirling about the future of the Man of Steel lately. The sequel to his 2013 revival from Zack Snyder has been rumored to be one of the projects that Mad Max: Fury Road helmer George Miller could direct, but the film has also been said to be on “permanent hold” until Warner Bros. Pictures really figures out what they want to do with the Big Blue Boy Scout.

In addition, there have been rumblings that Warner Bros. wants more Batman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and less of the Man of Steel (though Snyder may have had a reasonable explanation for that). Still things have been somewhat uncertain for the future of Superman in the DC Comics universe.

However, fans probably shouldn’t worry because Superman will always be an integral part of this comic book world, especially with Justice League on the way. And a new rumor actually debunks the “permanent hold” status of the sequel, revealing a potential Man of Steel 2 release date window as well as another potential DC Comics project for George Miller.

Man of Steel 2 on hold

A new rumor recently popped up saying that Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller was in talks to take over the Man of Steel franchise from Zack Snyder. But considering the movie isn’t officially on Warner Bros. Pictures’ schedule for their DC Comics cinematic universe, it didn’t sound like it was an immediate concern for the studio.

Now another rumor seems to confirm a lack of urgency to get Man of Steel 2 off the ground as the project is reportedly on “permanent hold.” But what does that even mean? Read More »

George Miller directing Man of Steel 2

As we wait to see whether or not Warner Bros. Pictures will move forward with a sequel to Mad Max: Fury Road, it sounds like director George Miller could end up getting behind the camera for another sequel at the studio.

Man of Steel Henry Cavill

2013’s Man of Steel did well enough that a Man of Steel 2 seemed like a sure bet. Instead, Warner Bros. zagged by announcing that Superman’s next outing wouldn’t be a Superman sequel, but the superhero team-up Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Which is all well and good, but does that Superman is done flying solo?

Star Henry Cavill doesn’t think so. “There’s plenty of time for individual Superman sequels,” he said. However, there’s still the matter of when. More on the Superman solo sequel possibilities after the jump.  Read More »


The Warner Bros. DC Movie slate is set. From Batman v Superman in 2016 through Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman, The Flash, a two part Justice League movie, Aquaman, Shazam, Cyborg and Green Lantern in 2020, that’s a whole lot of spandex on the big screen for the rest of this decade.

However, the press release also says this. “Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema will release a slate of at least 10 movies—as well as stand-alone Batman and Superman films—from 2016 through 2020 that expands this prized universe of characters.”

So in that time frame, if things go according to plan, not only are we getting the ten movies mentioned above, but new Batman and Superman solo movies too. Read More »
