Have You Had Enough of Man of Steel? Then Don't Click on This Post

Well apparently the movers and shakers behind Man of Steel took the news that Google can predict box office totals of films with 94% accuracy, because they're totally moving forward with the sequel already, in addition to flooding all the tubes on the Internet with a variety of promotional materials.

First up, David Goyer (the guy who wrote Man of Steel) has already been announced as the writer for Man of Steel 2. Zack Snyder has also been tapped to direct, and Christopher Nolan will once again produce. Warner Brothers has officially fasttracked the project on the principle that if they squeeze harder the golden goose will obviously pop out twice as many eggs.

In addition, Man of Steel 2 will be released before the rumored Justice League movie, because Zack Snyder says that Superman needs moved a bit further along his personal story before the ensemble event can happen.

Oh, and Justice League? David Goyer has been announced as the writer for that also. (source: SlashFilm and yes, SlashFilm)

Are your ears sick of listening to the Rains of Castamere on repeat after haunting repeat? Well, here you go, a live stream of the entire Hans Zimmer soundtrack of Man of Steel:

Finally, here's yet another clip from the film, which I think brings us to a grand total of 40% of the film released in clips up to this point. In it Jor-El "makes a heartbreaking decision" and not just about what cell phone provider to go with:

Man of Steel comes out this Friday, and presumably the sequel will be out by August given how furiously Warner Brothers is hammering down on the pedal.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    Huh. Track 7 is titled "Krypton's Last". That suggests that they aren't actually completely changing Kal-El's backstory.

    I'll be severely disappointed if Krypton survives through the end of this movie.

  • Scully

    I was not aware that Hans Zimmer is involved in this. Now I might have to see this just for the music alone.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Well, I know for certain that I don't want to get between THAT Jor-El and his phone.

    I really hope they don't just call it Man of Steel 2. Man of Tomorrow would work pretty well for a sequel. Especially if the villain winds up being Brainiac.

  • Fredo

    I'd hope they'd go with Man of Tomorrow for the sequel where he fights Luthor and Last Son of Krypton for whenever he finally faces off against Brainiac.

  • Bert_McGurt

    That'd work too! And it plays well into the Nolan formula where the arch-nemesis shows up in the second film. Maybe Luthor creates Bizarro or Cyborg Superman to fill the "Two-Face slot", so to speak?

    Actually, the only reason I didn't suggest Luthor is because I think they could easily save him for a Justice League villain. Course they can do that with Brainiac too.

  • MikeRoorda

    I know someone who went to an early sneak peek and hated it. However, he was born after Full House concluded its run, so clearly his decision maker isn't fully formed yet.

    I said this before. I'm super nervous about going to see this in the theater. Snyder and I have a complicated relationship where he keeps building up my expectations for his films, only to body slam all my hopes and dreams in front of me and counting my money while I watch.

    it's getting good reviews on Rotten Tomatoes so far.
