Since the release of DCEU’s debut Superman movie, DC fans have been yearning to know Warner Bro. plans for “Man of Steel” 2. However, it looks like the studio has been silently progressing with its schedule for it.
Earlier in July, an Insignia of brainiac was spotted in “Man of Steel.” Fans rejoiced, considering it to be a secret reference planted by Zack Snyder. Recently, a new source has confirmed that Warner Bros. is in active development with “Man of Steel” 2.
The report was initially confirmed by The Wrap. Now, a credible film critic has alleged that he knows more information on “Man of Steel” 2. According to a tweet by Forbes Contributor Mark Hughes, Warner Bros. has already chosen two directors as part of their shortlist names.
Hughes also stated either they “were/are” on the list. However, the journalist hasn’t revealed their names yet. Since then the post has gone viral and fans are eager waiting for Hughes to announce their names.
Last month, Warner Bros. also confirmed various untitled DC movies till 2020. It is possible that the studio plans on releasing the sequel for “Man of Steel” by 2019.
“Man of Steel” 2 will be releasing after Justice League movie. So, it’s evident that it would be set post the invasion from Apokolips. Furthermore, it makes it more likely for Brianiac to appear as the main supervillian in the sequel as well. For now, we have to wait for official reports from Warner Bros.
In other news, it was recently hinted by the main cast of Suicide Squad that “Task Force X” and “Justice League” members could crossover in the upcoming DC film. A fight between the worst supervillains vs. the best superheros, hopefully fans get to see it in an upcoming title.
