Zack Snyder On Man Of Steel Sequels
Should we cross our fingers...?

man of steel superman

The latest issue of Empire comes out this Thursday, April 25, and some Kryptonian folk are on the front cover(s), namely Henry Cavill's Superman and Michael Shannon's Zod, all in honour of Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel.

But with the trailer getting a lot of fans really excited for the film, you can't help but wonder whether a sequel is also on the cards, should Man Of Steel be a soaraway smash hit.

Talking to Snyder during post-production, he's keen to not say anything definitive - and certainly won't be drawn into anything to do with the Justice League - but there was one interesting titbit we thought we'd share with you online to whet your appetite.

"We didn't design the movie like Batman [i.e. as a trilogy] but I don't think anybody would say you design a Superman movie as a one-off."

Like we say, it's a titbit, but it's interesting to note that there isn't a broad arc in play here: there's a standalone movie, and if it works and Warner's $200 million investment pays off, then conversations will take place, but not in terms of a grand trilogy.

We'll be posting a few more Man Of Steel stories over the next few days, but for the real thing, be sure to pick up the magazine this Thursday and/or get your subscribe on here.

"I'm still not sold on this movie." "I'll give him a chance and see the movie." If being fully aware you're going to see the movie isn't being sold on the movie, I don't know what is. More

I'm still not sold on this movie. The casting of Superman is crucial and this new guy doesn't really do it for me. I'll give him a chance though and see the movie. More
