Not sure what to make of this one. I have to post this news with a caveat since I'm not too familiar with Think McFly but The Film Stage is always on the up and up, so we'll call this a rumor for now.

Apparently the WB Execs are really happy with early footage and the fan reaction to the Man of Steel thus far, so a gaggle of writers are on the list for potentially penning the sequel. It should be noted that David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight Rises) is not on said list but that's not too surprising since director Zack Snyder felt the need to rewrite the final draft from Goyer. Hopefully, this early head start will mean that we'll be able to get a Superman sequel sooner rather than later. Of course this all depends on how successful Man of Steel turns out to be.

Man of Steel won't wrap shooting until next year and we won’t see the film until 2013 but Warner Bros. is already looking at the following writers for a Superman sequel:

-Steve Kloves (Akira, The Amazing Spider-Man, Harry Potter franchise)
-Travis Beacham (Clash of the Titans, Pacific Rim)
-Lawrence Kasdan (Paradise Lost, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Empire Strikes Back)

That's a very interesting and talented trio Warner Bros. is reportedly looking at. I'm almost inclined to say that Warner Bros. can't miss although I'd have to say that Beacham is probably the weakest out of the three. That's not a knock on Beacham by any means, it's just that he's going against some steep competition (watch, he'll end up being the writer selected). Sound off below in the comments section with who gets your vote to direct the Man of Steel sequel!

Man of Steel is an upcoming American superhero film under the development of Zack Snyder, Christopher Nolan, and David S. Goyer. Based on the DC Comics character Superman, the film will be a reboot of the Superman film series. Using Chicago as a backdrop, and with production to be based in west suburban Plano, the film entered principal photography in August 2011, for a planned theatrical release on June 14, 2013 by Warner Bros., which also includes IMAX venues.
