A 'Man of Steel' Sequel is in the Works
The Wrap has confirmed that Henry Cavill's chances of another solo adventure as Superman have just sky-rocketed, with a sequel officially heading into 'active development.'
The 2013 film, which ended up launching the DCEU, received mixed reviews but appreciation for it seems to have grown somewhat in the time between (which seems to be a common theme in these latter DC films).
"Superman is a top priority for the studio and getting the character right for audiences is of tantamount importance," a familiar source told The Wrap. Warner Bros. are busy juggling many DCEU projects, so Superman is one of many "top priorities," we can gather.
With two untitled DC films set for 2018 and 2019, it may just be fitting if a Man of Steel sequel and the Batman solo film slot into those spots. The source did indicate that the Superman sequel would most likely arrive after the Batman film.
We'll keep an eye out for more on these developments.
