Man of Steel 2 Landing in 2014?

Faster than a speeding bullet, indeed.

Man of Steel debuted in theaters this weekend with a box-office take of approximately $125.1 million. Given the success, it’s no wonder Warner Bros. is fast-tracking a sequel — one that could land as early as 2014, if one report is to be believed.

The Wall Street Journal states that a Man of Steel sequel could hit theaters “as soon as 2014,” according to “knowledgeable people close to the studio.” Furthermore, the newspaper contends the long-developing Justice League movie could assemble “as soon as 2015,” as has been previously rumored.

Getting Henry Cavill back in the air as Superman in time for a 2014 release feels … well, “rushed” would be one way of putting it. But considering that Warner Bros. already has Cavill locked for The Man From U.N.C.L.E., how tough would it be to shift him away from that franchise and lock him back in for another turn as the Last Son of Krypton? Further, Zack Snyder and David Goyer have both openly admitted they discussed sequel possibilities while shooting the first Man of Steel. Perhaps a second flight with Cavill’s Superman is a bit further along than we realize.

All that said, 2014 feels very soon for another Man of Steel. 2015, on the other hand? That could work.

    Post-production on MOS took 2 years. Even with a script in place right now, I don’t believe they would have a sequel out in the next years and a half. 2015 seems reasonable, but not next year…

    i wonder how many more people will die…

    I doubt this very much. But y’know, maybe they were doing more than just post-production work during all that time. Unlikely, though. Everybody these days seems to have a “source close to the studio” regardless of which studio you’re talking about. And rarely do these things turn out to be right.

    MOS was a solid movie. Not great. It had holes but was entertaining. Having the next one out in 2014 would compromise the ‘quality’.

    Secretly shot part two during their seven months of filming. No leaks about it because it’s just Lois and Clark working late at night. The rest is CGI.

    That’s right rush the second movie out, maybe it can be worse than the first. WB- clueless.

    You’re making it sound as though MOS was bad when in fact it was actually quite good.

  • MaskedManAICN

    MOS was no Green Lantern for sure, but it was no better than the Incredible Hulk.

  • coalminds

    Rushing a sequel out to meet a deadline for a group movie is exactly what made Iron Man 2 so mediocre..

    Reeks of desperation.
