Zack Snyder Says "We'll See What Happens" When It Comes To A MAN OF STEEL Sequel

Man of Steel director Zack Snyder was careful not to give too much away when quizzed about the possibility of continuing Superman's adventures past next June's reboot, but you can read his comments on that and more after the jump.

Talking to E! Online at the Arthritis Foundation gala in Beverly Hills yesterday, Man of Steel director Zack Snyder was finally quizzed on the question that's been on the mind of many a comic book fan for a while now. Is he interested in also helming a follow-up to the eagerly anticipated reboot? "We like to take it one step at a time and not curse anything," he teased. "It's that kind of thing so we'll see what happens." Fair enough. It's way too early for sequel talk at this point anyway (something which Green Lantern proved pretty quickly when it bombed both critically and financially at the box office last year). As for not giving away anything about the plot, he added, "It's super hard to keep it a secret" and said this about seeing Henry Cavill suit up for the first time. "It was awesome. You look at him and you're like, 'That was a good idea!'" Be sure to sound off with your thoughts on his comments in the usual place and click on the link at the bottom of the page to read more.






In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond his imagination. Transported years ago to Earth from Krypton, a highly advanced, distant planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question 'Why am I here?' Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), Clark discovers having extraordinary abilities means making difficult decisions. When the world is in dire need of stability, an even greater threat emerges. Clark must become a Man of Steel, to protect the people he loves and shine as the world’s beacon of hope – Superman.


STARRING:

Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman
Amy Adams as Lois Lane

RELEASE DATE: June 14th, 2013.

TheRationalOne - 10/29/2012, 12:51 PM
I can't fuggin wait for this movie.
LP4 - 10/29/2012, 12:52 PM
Well in any case, I hope this movie is great. This has been my #1 most anticipated CBM since it was first announced back in early 2010.

Tony93 - 10/29/2012, 12:52 PM
I want them to show the comic con footage trailer in December
Spideyguy94 - 10/29/2012, 12:52 PM
Superman batman and spider-man will make money no matter what. Even though superman returns didn't make as much money as they thought it would it still made its budget back despite the lack if action. If man of steel has some great action it will make at least 600 million worldwide

I remember Reynolds discussing potential story lines for a Green Lantern trilogy, now he couldn't seem more disinterested with the future of the franchise. However I can't see Man of Steel doing so bad its abandoned entirely.
Tony93 - 10/29/2012, 12:54 PM
@LP4 same here, most anticipated over anything else.. ever.
Ha1frican - 10/29/2012, 12:54 PM
Good that he isn't rushing it like so many other franchises
TheRationalOne - 10/29/2012, 12:55 PM
And I hope never to see a WW movie. As part of justice league, fine. Solo, no thanks.

INSTANTJUSTICE - 10/29/2012, 12:58 PM


Why do all these men involved in Superman all have so much latent homo-eroticism floating around them?

Singer = gay

Cavill = possibly gay?...considering the rumours

Snyder = 300 (total YMCA)

Not that there's anything wrong with it but why does supes foster so much 'gay'?
CaptainAmerica31 - 10/29/2012, 12:59 PM
Should Defiently be a trilogly
INSTANTJUSTICE - 10/29/2012, 1:01 PM

Have you got something against gays?
DHisHere - 10/29/2012, 1:02 PM
Green Lantern is Shit

Do it Flash!
Mrcool210 - 10/29/2012, 1:05 PM
oh man that doesnt sound good

Christopher Meloni was also at this event and had this to say about MOS:

"I just keep telling everyone it's a reimagining and something that you've never seen before in your life—how a superhero is portrayed, the journey he gave him and how it's filmed. You've never see anything like it."
jimpinto24 - 10/29/2012, 1:08 PM
I hope MOS does well at the box office, because I would love to see a MOS2.
DHisHere - 10/29/2012, 1:09 PM

Fall of Man
Steel Rises
Steel is Gone
Steel Please Come Back
Steel Returns

WB is probably playing it safe. They don't want this to end up like Green Lantern, where they gave the green-light to a sequel months before they found out the movie would bomb.
DrRockso - 10/29/2012, 1:14 PM
On that note, I think I'll smoke a joint and throw in the directors cut of Watchmen.
DrRockso - 10/29/2012, 1:16 PM
@MrSteiners that actually looks awesome.
HeadPool420 - 10/29/2012, 1:29 PM
Come on Zack don't let us down! Give us the epic Superman movie that we as fans deserve!!!! Please!
TheRaven20 - 10/29/2012, 1:31 PM

@InstantJustice...I find it Funny that a kid named blueFLAMER reported you...just sayin...just.....sayin
UltimaRex - 10/29/2012, 1:35 PM
Well lookie here, no mention of JL.

Hmm...
MisterMagurlypse - 10/29/2012, 1:35 PM
Yes, one step at a time.
@DrRockso....puff, puff, pass man!
MisterMagurlypse - 10/29/2012, 1:38 PM
I'll pass it to InstantJustice so he can CHILL on the gay references.
For real!
BruceLeroy - 10/29/2012, 1:40 PM
@xBlueFlameXKid

Man, really? MOS is probably going to do well but I highly doubt it ends up doing as well as Iron Man 3. MOS doing numbers similar to Batman Begins or the first Iron Man would be more of a realistic bet.
Happy11 - 10/29/2012, 1:50 PM
Can't wait, also I think Indus next few months we will get a trailer then from March April it will be marketed in a big way. Cavill looks awesome the teaser looks awesome.
Next year is looking good for cbms, just hope this and wolverine live up to the hype, as the 3 marvel studios movies im3, thor2 and ca2 should be good. Bring on 2013.
Fogs - 10/29/2012, 1:52 PM
If you mix his two phrases:

"It was awesome. You look at him and you're like, It's super hard!"
dezdigi - 10/29/2012, 1:54 PM
I think it's a good bet that we'll see the first full trailer in front of the Hobbit. I'm hoping for a Wolverine trailer around Jan/Feb. A second IM 3 trailer around Superbowl time? Thor trailer by the end of the summer.
dezdigi - 10/29/2012, 1:57 PM
Also, we could get the first Thor teaser with IM 3
Happy11 - 10/29/2012, 1:58 PM
Blueflame u just contradicted yourself by answering back
JULEZ13 - 10/29/2012, 2:01 PM
Zack Snyder was the perfect choice to direct MOS. Superman needs a visionary director, yes need! We need to see what all his powers can really do! Same with JL, Snyder is also the man for the job.

I like that WB isn't getting too ahead of themselves with talk of sequels going on almost a year before a film is released a la GL... God that bombed so bad.

MOS will be great and if it is great it will undoubtedly make more money than any other CBM out that year. I can guarantee that!

But Snyder better come back for the sequel! I don't know what's up with him and sequels but it seems as though he's afraid of them!
