Zack Snyder On MAN OF STEEL 2 Progress
While in Sydney for the Australian premiere of Man of Steel, Moviehole caught up with director Zack Snyder and were able to garner a few kernels of new information regarding the inevitable Man of Steel sequel. Snyder didn't extrapolate on many of his responses but one of the new revelations is that he hasn't spoken to Warner Bros. officially about a Man of Steel sequel.
In an exclusive interview with Moviehole at Man of Steel's Australian premiere, director Zack Snyder addressed some familiar questions surrounding his film. In one of the first post-release interviews, have Snyder's answers changed?
On the sequel – which we hear the studio has not only greenlit, but that Snyder has already got the setting and villain mapped out!
Snyder: "I’m going to be a hundred percent honest with you, I haven’t yet gotten to speak to the studio about all these awesome details (because I’ve been overseas on the junket). So my hope is, when I get home I can sit down with everyone and it’ll be like ‘Okay, so what are we going to do?.. we need to do something…”’
One of the questions they have to immediately address in a sequel:
Snyder: “We almost destroyed the world last time, now what!?’
Does ”Man of Steel” lead to ”Justice League”?
I really wanted to expand the DC Universe and I really wanted to make sure, in Superman’s world, that all that is a possibility.
Addressing a couple of fan complaints…
People have been like ‘there’s no kryptonite in the movie!’ and ‘there’s no Lex Luthor in the movie!’, and by no means am I saying those things don’t exist, I’m just saying he didn’t run into them here [this time].
On the film’s ”Smallville” references (look closely for homages to the characters of Chloe and Whitney)
Ya know, [TVs Smallville is] in the Superman mythology now. I was interested in that kind of homage to the mythology. I feel it’s not so much about paying more homage to the series, it’s just in the vernacular of Superman now.
So what do you think CBMers? Any theories on how the destruction of Metropolis could play into the sequel? I think we all figured the obvious route would be for Lex Luthor to help rebuild Metropolis. But where would the sequel go from there? And could it possibly lead to Justice League? Post your thoughts below.
