DC fans rejoiced this weekend when Man of Steel director came out on stage at Comic-Con and announced…
“It’s official that we are going to make another Superman movie. I’ve poured through the DC universe for a way to tell this thing.”
Set for release in 2015, this sequel is to be directed by Zack Snyder and written by David S. Goyer featuring two of WB/DC’s most popular superheroes, which are in direct competition with Disney/Marvel’s Avengers characters.
Snyder added, “I’m so excited to begin working again with Henry Cavill in the world we created, and I can’t wait to expand the DC Universe in this next chapter. Let’s face it, it’s beyond mythological to have Superman and our new Batman facing off, since they are the greatest superheroes in the world.”
Man Of Steel which is currently still playing in theaters worldwide has made over $625 million while Christopher Nolan’s rebooted Batman trilogy has surpassed $4 billion globally. Christian Bale has already told the press that he won’t reprise his role as the Gotham Knight, so the search will begin for a new actor to play Batman in the hear future.
Warner Bros. is also planning a Flash feature in 2016 and a big Justice League movie in 2017. Watch out, Marvel. The race is on!
