'Man Of Steel 2' Announced: Superman Will Take Flight Once Again

Yesterday, The Wrap announced that Warner Bros., after their recent success with the opening of Suicide Squad this past weekend, is now planning to move forward with a sequel to Man Of Steel and that it is going into active development.

Released in 2013, produced by Christopher Nolan and directed by Zack Snyder, “Man Of Steel” earned $668 million at the global box office and launched the ambitious DC Cinematic Universe. This summer’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” which picked up where that film left off, has pulled in $872 million.

Despite Superman’s battle with Batman, DC has been silent on a sequel to “Man of Steel” featuring Superman solo, leading many frustrated fanboys to believe that another film wasn’t going to happen. But a person close to the project told The Wrap that Superman is a top priority for the studio and getting the character right for audiences is of tantamount importance.

For everyone who liked and enjoyed Man Of Steel, because of Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Amy Adams kicking plenty of ass as Lois Lane while squaring off against Toby Ziegler, Elliot Stabler, and Lip Sync Battle Heavyweight Champion Michael Shannon (even though he had no business winning that belt after going up against Rachel Bloom), and not just because you were able to enjoy watching scenes like this …

… you’re in luck because the sequel is on its way.

For everyone who didn’t like Man Of Steel and is looking forward to/dreading the possibility of having even more reasons to complain about Superman not saving enough lives, even though he does so here…

And also here …

…Superman not smiling enough when doing anything (even though he is seen doing so here, here, here, and here), the overabundance of product placement and destruction porn (none of which was considered a problem during this fight scene from Superman II)…

…or the fact that Clark didn’t save his so-paranoid-about-the-goodness-of-humans-he-almost-makes-Fox Mulder-look-normal father from an incoming tornado (I would’ve preferred it if both of Clark’s parents stayed alive, but that’s just me), you will have another opportunity to do so because the sequel is on its way.

No release date for Man Of Steel 2 has been announced yet, especially as Warner Bros./DC still has the upcoming Wonder Woman and Justice League on the horizon to hopefully not start another critics vs. fans vs. Rotten Tomatoes war that will take over the entire Internet.
