WB Fast-Tracking MAN OF STEEL 2 With Zack Snyder And David Goyer Returning, Goyer Also Confirmed To Be Writing JUSTICE LEAGUE
Deadline reports that Warner Bros. is very eager to start production on the next Man of Steel film. The studio is officially moving forward with the sequel. Director Zack Snyder and screenwriter David S. Goyer are confirmed for the sequel. Goyer seemingly is undertaking the DCU as he was apart of Nolan's Batman trilogy, a possible Man of Steel trilogy and was finally confirmed for writing the Justice League script for WB. After Will Beall's JL draft was scrapped. It's sounding like the studio is investing some serious cash in locking up Goyer and Snyder for their Superman franchise. Snyder has already hinted to that a Man of Steel sequel would happen before Justice League. Giving a little more weight to the recent talk that MOS 2 would be coming out in 2014 with JL in 2015.
Look … completely hypothetically, I feel like you need to get Superman a little further down the road, I think, before you can do a Justice League movie.
David was recently quoted via CosmicBookNews on the Man of Steel red carpet giving the impression he's involved and the film could rival The Avengers.
They’ve got a little kryptonite pellet embedded in my heart and if I say anything it will explode, but I would be a very rich man for all the times I was asked that question. It all depends on how the [Man of Steel] does. I would love to see a Justice League film, absolutely. Put the Avengers on notice.
