A “Man of Steel” sequel as early as next year?

June 17, 2013

In a piece on the recent box office success of Man of Steel, The Wall Street Journal has seemingly revealed that the sequel is being planned for release as early as next year! 

“Warner is already in development on a sequel to “Man of Steel” and is expected to fast track that for release as soon as 2014, said knowledgeable people close to the studio. In addition, it has long been developing a “Justice League” team-up movie featuring characters such as the Flash and Wonder Woman that could come out as soon as 2015.” 

While this may seem unlikely, it’s not exactly unheard of. Fast & Furious 6 came out this year and the seventh instalment of that franchise will be released in a little over a year from now. With The Hobbit: There and Back Again filling Warner Bros. summer slot, there’s nothing to say that a Man of Steel sequel couldn’t fill the vacant December position that both The Hobbit and Harry Potter have found great success in.

However, they would need to start work on the movie almost immediately to make this a reality, and Henry Cavill’s next project is supposed to be The Man From U.N.C.L.E.. Whether this is a mistake or just a sign that the studio is anxious remains to be seen.

We’ll have to wait for this year’s San Diego Comic Con.
