Warner Brothers And DC Reportedly Have A 'Man of Steel' Sequel In Active Development

Although the reviews for Suicide Squad have been pretty harsh thus far, that doesn't seem to be stopping fans from seeing the movie as it has come on top of the box office. DC seems to have no plans of slowing down with their upcoming busy release schedule, including both Wonder Woman and Justice League hitting next year. Yet some of their projects have unfortunately taken a backseat amongst all the chaos of the growing DC Extended Universe, one of which is a legitimate sequel to 2013's Man of Steel. Well it looks like the studio does still in fact intend to release the sequel after all, and its apparently a top priority.

According to The Wrap's Umberto Gonzalez, it seems Warner Bros. is certainly prioritizing the Man of Steel sequel and want to make sure they get the character right for fans. Audiences for the most part warmed up to Cavill's version of the character in his introduction in Man of Steel, but many complained that he was portrayed as too dark or too violent. This was of course something that was expanded on in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, a film that many had at first believed would be the sequel to Man of Steel.
But that of course wasn't the case as Superman shared the screen with many other characters and heroes including Ben Affleck's Batman and Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman. So suffice to say, although the majority of the film took place in Metropolis and Superman's villains Lex Luthor and Doomsday were the primary antagonists of story, Dawn of Justice never felt like a straight up solo movie for the Man of Steel. With Superman set to make his return from the dead for Justice League, we can expect him to be a changed man who has been through a lot more experience when Man of Steel 2 rolls around.
There's still many things up in the are about the sequel, including when it would actually be released. DC has a busy schedule up until 2020, but many of this is susceptible to change. Especially with Ben Affleck's Batman film, the rumored Harley Quinn film, and possibly Suicide Squad 2 likely set to make their way onto said schedule. We also don't know if Zack Snyder would return to direct now that he has the responsibility of helming the Justice League films, so he may have to pass on to the duties to someone else. But the biggest question is of course who will be facing of against Superman in the sequel, with several possibilities including fan favorites such as Metallo and Brainiac having yet to make their big screen debut.
So what do you want to see in Man of Steel 2? Is there any particular villain you would like to see Superman face? Do you want Zack Snyder to return to the director's chair? Let us know below!
