It turns out that that sequel for Man Of Steel could very well be greenlit.
It is reported (The Wrap) that Warner Bros. is now in active developing on a sequel to 2013’s Man of Steel, making the movie a major priority.
But with Superman ‘dead’ in Batman V Superman, will the talks of Man Of Steel 2 ultimately reveal his resurrection come Justice league? Most likely. And with the expanding DC filmic universe, will MOS 2 be a Justice League 1.5 like Captain America 3 was and Avengers 2.5. Lots of questions. Lots of potentially-worrying outcomes.
As Man Of Steel is the DCU rosetta stone all branching DCU films branch from, Man Of Steel 2 could look to set the tone right, or rather in a different direction if desired. But it all boils down to DC’s plans.
Warner Bros. has two untitled DC comics movies to be released on Oct. 5, 2018 and Nov. 1, 2019. So our money is one will be the Ben Affleck directed Batman movie, and the other Man of Steel 2.
