Man of Steel was the first movie to kick off the DC Expanded Universe that would eventually include a new version of Batman, as well as the first big-screen iterations of Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg, all coming together to form the Justice League. The assembly of the DC Comics superhero team and the individual movies for each of the superheroes on the team has kept Warner Bros. Pictures kind of busy, but now they may be ready to bring their attention back to The Big Blue Boy Scout.
A new report indicates that Kingsman: The Secret Service and X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn is the studio’s top choice to direct Man of Steel 2 and they’ve already had “preliminary conversations” about working together on the sequel. Find out more below. Read More »

Update: Henry Cavill‘s manager Dany Garcia has confirmed that another Superman standalone movie is a top priority right now:
“Henry has a big appetite,” she told Newsweek about Cavill’s Hollywood ambitions. “We’ve been in a five-month period of time where he’s re-strategizing, acquiring property , 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.”
I wonder how the Superman world will be expanded.

Ever since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hit theaters, fans have been buzzing about the possibility of a standalone Batman movie starring Ben Affleck. And after Gal Gadot‘s truly epic debut as Wonder Woman, it’s no wonder people seem hyped for her upcoming standalone movie. But what about the third member of the DC trinity? Will Henry Cavill‘s Superman ever get to fly solo again?
While there’s no Man of Steel 2 on the Warner Bros. release schedule just yet, Cavill and director Zack Snyder aren’t ruling one out. It’s just that they need to find the right time. Or get the right script. Or they’re waiting to see how things shake out with Batman v Superman. Or something.

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.

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 »
