Will A MAN OF STEEL Sequel Hit As Early As...Next Year?!
Man of Steel has only just opened in theatres, but "knowledgeable people close to the studio" have apparently told a reliable source that the sequel may be released as soon as 2014, with Justice League following soon after in 2015. News that's too good to be true, surely? Read on for details.
In a piece on the recent box office success of Man of Steel, The Wall Street Journal has seemingly revealed that the sequel is being planned for release as early as NEXT YEAR. "Warner is already in development on a sequel to "Man of Steel" and is expected to fast track that for release as soon as 2014, said knowledgeable people close to the studio. In addition, it has long been developing a "Justice League" team-up movie featuring characters such as the Flash and Wonder Woman that could come out as soon as 2015." While this may seem unlikely, it's not exactly unheard of. Fast & Furious 6 came out this year and the seventh instalment of that franchise will be released in a little over a year from now. However, they would need to start work on the movie almost immediately to make this a reality, and Henry Cavill's next project is supposed to be The Man From U.N.C.L.E.. Whether this is a mistake or just a sign that the studio are anxious to establish a new franchise as quickly as possible remains to be seen. We should however find out one way or the other at this year's San Diego Comic Con.
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.
