The Man of Steel will hit theatres this Friday and already there is a sequel in the works.
Deadline’s Editor-in-Chief Nikki Fine reported that the Man of Steel’s director Zach Snyder and screenwriter David S. Goyer have signed on for the untitled Superman sequel.
The Tudors’ Henry Cavill is also expected to jump back in the Superman uniform for the second go-around.
“How Hollywood works with these kind of things is that when you are doing a screen test, you will sign a contract saying, ‘OK, yes, I’ll do the movie if you guys want me,’” said Cavill in an exclusive interview with The Huffington Post. "And, in that, it’s standard procedure to do two options beyond the movie."
If Man of Steel soars in the Box Office this weekend, Warner Bros will focus on finding a way to connecting Superman with a certain Caped Crusader and the Justice League.
“I think, ultimately, a Justice League movie could be fun, but to get to that stage, you have to do other movies in between.” Cavill said in an IGN interview. “You can’t just suddenly have a world full of gods when one god has just arrived. So how do you get to that stage? I think a ‘Batman/Superman’ movie would be great because it brings that world together. Whether they’re going to let that happen, I don’t know.”
