Well, with Superman taking over the global box-office following his arrival in Zack Snyder’s acclaimed reboot MAN OF STEEL (in a haul of $200 million-plus), most fans are already wanting more adventures from super-powered hunk Henry Cavill’s Kal-El. Having caught the film at the European premiere on Wednesday (you can read my report here), it’s easy to see why, although I myself was hoping for a 5 star affair I’d have to agree with our very own supreme leader Paul Heath in his solid 4-star review.
While we knew Warner Bros. had tapped Snyder and screenwriter David S. Goyer to re-team to bring us more high-flying Metropolis mayhem involving the last son of Krypton, we expected it will be a couple of years before they’d get the project off the ground. However, faster than a speeding bullet (okay, maybe not that fast), the studio are fast-tracking the follow-up to shoot early next year and possibly have it completed and ready for release late 2014.
That’s right, Warner Bros. will attempt to bring us a MAN OF STEEL sequel next year! We’ll keep you informed as an official announcement is expected at next months San Diego Comic-Con, which THN will be right in the mix and covering stateside!
