DC said to be actively developing a Man of Steel sequel

08.08.2016

As the story goes, MAN OF STEEL 2 eventually morphed into BATMAN V SUPERMAN, thus bringing about this whole DC universe we're dealing with now. The third film in the DCEU, SUICIDE SQUAD, is now in theaters. ON the horizon we have WONDER WOMAN hitting on June 2, 2017, with JUSTICE LEAGUE landing on Nov. 17, 2017. Following that would be AQUAMAN on July 27, 2018. We also know that a standalone Batman flick is coming our way eventually, but if the following information is to be believed, we have one more to add to the list.

According to The Wrap, DC is now actively developing a sequel to MAN OF STEEL, or rather, a standalone Superman flick. There's been no official word, of course, but given the eventual return of Kal-El in JUSTICE LEAGUE, it would make sense to give him his own adventure.

You may note that I have not included what was originally called Justice League: Part 2 on this list. There's no telling if a second Justice League flick will be hitting before a solo Supes movie, but something tells me DC and Warner Bros. might want to build up their characters separately before bringing them back for another big adventure. Zack Snyder has been the go-to guy for almost everything DC so far, but given the recent criticism, Warner Bros. may be looking for someone else to bring the Man of Steel to life. One can hope, anyway.

I like Man of Steel. Love BvS. Just watched Watchmen for the first time in years. Zack Snyder is a fine director. He needs better scripts

thank you. people this days just need somebody to hate. Maybe he is not the best actors director, but he is a great Comic Book fan/Director. Come On.... The Lazzo, The Nuke Superman, The "lets do it Arkam game Style"

One problem with MoS, BvS and Suicide Squad was the exposition. That presumably won't be a problem from here on out. Imagine if Civil War were Marvel's first movie and they had 30 minutes of exposition explaining who every character was. People would have walked out.

It'll be like Captain America: Civil War (Avengers 2.5) I'll call Man of Steel 2 "Justice League 1.5." You all know other JLA's will be in it.

Hey, how about getting George Miller to take a stab at it? Have Superman battle Brainiac or Metallo. Make it a more fun and less depressing movie. Keep Cavill as Superman, he's perfect if only Snyder would let him smile more than two seconds in his blue jammies.

Yes please. The only issue I had with MOS was Pa Kent's death. I actually thought it had the best action I've ever seen in a superhero movie as well as one of the best soundtracks.

Wake me up when they reboot. No way am I going to wish for a good sequel when their past three films have been nothing but awful Twilight for boys BS.

There were parts of "Man of Steel" that I really dug. I like how he was treated as an alien threat by some, Lois Lane was actually a person, and I really didn't get bothered by the Pa Kent death. Unfortunately, all that was lost in "BvS", especially Lois Lane. She was turned into a whiny and useless character. I didn't mind the darker approach they brought to the character either.

I count myself among those who loved MoS and BvS, so I'm down for this. I'd really like to see Reign of the Supermen, just to get Eradicator and the leather jacket Superboy in the DCU.

DC = DOA

Man Of Steel was so bad, that I turned it off half way through. With the backlash of the other two movies, I think I'll wait until all of this DCU stuff is available on Netflix.

Man of Steel is right next to The Dark Knight and Avengers as my favorite comic book movies. Im pumped for a sequel. BvS and Squad were entertaining but MoS was a damn good movie imo. Cavill is great as supes.

Oh God WB

Make it stop.
I want a good Superman movie as much as anyone. Hell I want a good DCCU as much as anyone. But this desperate rush to be relevant, trying to play catch up with the Marvel cinematic model, whilst choosing directors who utterly misjudge and don't seem to understand the source material and are for some reason attempting (and failing) to replicate the aesthetic of your one successful comic book franchise in the past decade or so, clearly isn't working.
Stop. Take your time.

Stop. Take your time. Re-evaluate. Come back to us all when you have a working game-plan with people who genuinely understand your source material

Man Of Steel was good. Pick the right story, villain and director and the sequel could be excellent. Glad they're keeping a proper sequel to MoS in mind.

"One can hope"....come on!

Just couldn't report the news without that little dig at Snyder huh? You're like that passive aggressive girlfriend that just has to say something about any pretty girl that crosses her path. Let people enjoy things for crying out loud.

Seriously? You sound like you are the one with issues.
That is just Sean's opinion, and it is a valid one as well.
Joblo's news articles have always had a bit of personal insight from the writer, usually at the end of the piece, and this is just an example of that.
This is not the case like when Billy Donelly starts a piece by spreading hate with his personal views before even starting to write about the subject (like on those Ghostbusters' ones where he started by attacking those who didn't

This is just a personal opinion and no one is being attacked.
If you want to be Snyder's girlfriend, good for you. You have the Strikeback section to defend him, but don't attack someone that has not attacked you.
On top of this, I can assure you that Sean is not alone on that point of view, many of us think Snyder is not doing a great job.

Even though I didn't enjoy Man of Steel, I think it is possible to get a good Superman movie with Cavill in the role. Now that the origin stuff is out of the way, I'd like to see what they do with the character.

Yes, Cavill can be so damn charming when he wants to be. I loved BvS but MoS not as much. I don't mind seeing supes get super pissed off but lighten up his mood a little bit so we see the charming smile and montage of him doing good deeds around the world like Donner's superman did. Cavill definitely has the look.

New director

I'd love to see Mel Gibson helm a Man of Steel sequel.

Wasn't too into the first one first time out but what works well on repeat viewings

With any luck, they won't bring back Snyder. I know he's contractually obligated to do Justice League at this point. But if WB has any sense of salvaging the DCEU franchise, they'll cut him loose after Justice League. Hand the reins over to someone better able to tell a Superman story on the big screen.

About time!

Honestly I love Man of Steel. It was a great, interesting journey for the character and in the end I had the feeling Superman has arrived (Love the "welcome to the planet" part). After that I expected we would see an optimistic sequel featuring the hero we know. Sadly BvS came in between and further deconstructed Superman instead of builing him up first. So I hope he'll get the movie he deserve...

Say what you want about MOS, but I feel that it had some of the best superhero action ever put on film. Cavill is a great Clark Kent / Superman...looking forward to this.

It's about damn time they announced a sequel to Man of Steel. I've enjoyed all three DCEU films so far immensely, but Man of Steel is still my favorite. If Snyder doesn't return (which I hope he does), then I would love to see those rumors of George Miller directing a DC film come to life.

And as for the villain, I would love to see Superman go up against Braniac this time around. And instead of calling it Man of Steel 2, perhaps Last Son of Krypton? And to close out the trilogy, maybe call
