It’s been long-rumored that a sequel to 2013’s Man Of Steel was in the works at Warner Bros. and it was actaully even more or less announced in an official press release back in 2014. However, three years managed to pass, and fans of the Last Son of Krypton were only treated to a semi-sequel in the form of Zack Snyder‘s critically maligned Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, which saw DC’s most iconic hero ever sacrifice himself for the greater good, albeit in a fairly anticlimactic manner, especially considering Henry Cavill was confirmed for an appearance in the currently filming Justice League shortly after the film’s release.
In the time since the Time Warner Investor Day announcement from CEO Kevin Tsujihara, the studio seemed to shift their priorities, confirming and/or launching production on solo films for other DC heroes, including Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash, Cyborg, Green Lantern Corps, and even The Batman, but no word on a new Superman project… until today that is.
The Wrap is reporting that Warner Bros. has actively started developing the long-rumored Man Of Steel sequel. The untitled project is still in its infant stages, so no further details were provided, but their source adds that: “Superman is a top priority for the studio and getting the character right for audiences is of tantamount importance.” Now, that should be music to the ears of many comic book movie fans worldwide. Also, while not explicity stated, it can probably be assumed that both Henry Cavill and Amy Adams will reprise their roles as Clark Kent and Lois Lane, respectively.
As for a release date, WB already has two Untitled DC Films slated for October 5, 2018 and November 1, 2019, so if the Ben Affleck-directed Batman solo feature lands the October date, as expected, then there’s probably a decent chance the Superman sequel will arrive in theaters November 2019.
