MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: FALLOUT Director Christopher McQuarrie Would Helm MAN OF STEEL 2 If Henry Cavill Asked

With conversations about Man of Steel 2 re-emerging, Henry Cavill’s Mission Impossible: Fallout director has revealed that he’d happily helm the film if the star wanted him to. More past the jump...

It's been half a decade now since Henry Cavill's Superman debuted in 2013's Man of Steel and though we've seen the character since in both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and last year's Justice League, we've yet to have a direct solo follow-up for the Last Son of Krypton.

Movement on that front seems to be happening, however, with Warner Bros apparently wanting to make Superman the connecive lynchpin of their universe and with Cavill reportedly renewing his contract revealing that "there is a whole style of Superman's character that I'm very keen to tell and I'm looking forward to the opportunity."

It was also revealed that while on the set of the upcoming Mission Impossible: Fallout the actor spoke frequently with writer / director Chris McQuarrie about the character. Interestingly enough McQuarrie was at one time rumored to be in talks to helm a Green Lantern Corps film for the studio.

Both this and the recent comments from Cavill about "having lots of conversations, behind-the-scenes with certain people" about a Man of Steel 2 led many to speculate that these involved McQuarrie potentially helming the project.

Now in a new interview with CinePop, when asked whether he'd be interested in directing a superhero film, McQuarrie revealed "I've never really thought about it. I feel like if the story was right and the character was right - I love working with Henry, Henry's great."

This last point led the interview to press on the possibility of him directing a Man of Steel 2 with McQuarrie stating "If Henry asked me to, sure, why not?"
