An article from The Washington Times suggests that Man of Steel 2 may be very, very far from becoming a reality.
In their recent story, focusing on DC’s Justice League and beyond, producer Charles Roven told The Washington Post that there’s no script for Man of Steel 2, though “various story ideas” have been tossed around.
Roven’s quote actually sounds far more optimistic than The Washington Times‘ own assessment of the sequel, printing:
“The Superman sequel Man of Steel 2 also isn’t coming anytime soon, if at all.”
If at all? It is true that a sequel to 2013’s Man of Steel has not been a priority for DC, who has announced nearly every other conceivable DC property from a solo Black Adam movie to Justice League Dark (both of which we may also never see).
Yet, one would think, even in the era of Batman and Wonder Woman being DC’s current “big two,” that a Superman movie would be some sort of priority for the studio, especially with so many players already in place including Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Diane Lane as Martha ‘MARTHA!’ Kent, and Laurence Fishburne as Perry White.
What DC does officially have on the books is Aquaman coming out in December 2018, Shazam, which will shoot next, Wonder Woman 2 at its new home in November 2019, and Matt Reeve’s The Batman, which has no start date or release date, but is obviously a priority for DC.
