Director Christopher McQuarrie Talks Man Of Steel 2

Like most DC properties over at Warner Bros. Pictures, there are a lot of questions about the possibility of a Man of Steel 2. Other than questioning if the film will ever be made, is Henry Cavill even Clark Kent aka Superman anymore? The topic of a Superman sequel came up in an interview that Collider had with director of Mission: Impossible-Fallout, Christopher McQuarrie, due to the fact that he cast Henry Cavill in the film.

During the Q&A after an IMAX screening of Mission: Impossible-Fallout, McQuarrie was asked if he had any interest in making Man of Steel 2 with Cavill. He responded by saying:
“Many, many people have asked, many, many, many times. I had an awesome conversation with Henry Cavill about an awesome version of Superman while we were on set. You’re sitting around of hours, waiting for stuff to be built so I can put Henry in it, and throw him off a cliff, or freeze him to death. And we talked about a really awesome version of Superman.”

It’s very interesting that both him and Cavill have seemed to have had this conversation more than once and it sounds like he would be open to making a Superman film where he is heroic and optimistic, but that at the end of the day the decisions are made by corporations with a lot of moving parts.

“[That’s] the movie Henry wants. There’s a really, really beautiful version of that, and I honestly can’t speak for the people who are responsible for making those decisions, except to say it’s part of a giant corporate mechanism. I’m one guy. I can stand up and turn around, turn my back to you instantly, a giant corporation that’s in the middle of a merger with another giant corporation is an aircraft carrier in a broom closet being asked to turn around. Part of my job, and what’s made my being a director so much more easy in this business, was ultimately coming to terms with the fact that the people that I’m sitting across from have much bigger problems than I do. They just do. And I sympathize with those problems, ’cause before I used to just view them as incredibly obtuse, and they don’t know what movies are about. Of course they do. They all love movies…”

McQuarrie finished talking about the idea of directing a Superman sequel by saying that, “well, they know where to find me. They know where to call me, but I don’t expect the phone to ring. I don’t expect that to happen.” He has done a great job with the last two Mission: Impossible films and with a good relationship with Cavill, it would be a great idea to have McQuarrie direct a Superman film, because so far it hasn’t worked out very well for Warner Bros. and their DC films. Also it’s important to note that he has been brought in many times to punch up, rework and overhaul screenplays, maybe he can help out the DCEU?
