Man Of Steel sequel still in the works

Henry Cavill in Man Of Steel

Spoiler Alert! Looks like Superman is alive! Shocking, we know. But though his story seemed to be sidelined in service to building the Justice League, it appears Warner Bros. is still very much committed to giving Henry Cavill's Supes another stand-alone film.

The Wrap's sources are telling the site that despite a relative silence over plans to create a Superman-focused sequel to Man Of Steel (Batman V Superman was originally in development as such, but evolved into the super-slugfest instead), the wheels are very much still in motion. Superman is, apparently, still a high priority for the studio, with talk of getting the character "right", which seems a little late given he's already been in two big movies.

Nothing has been said of what this film might entail, or when it might arrive, though amidst all the confirmed titles, there are a couple of unnamed movies lurking on Warners and DC's schedule for October 2018 and November 2019, so perhaps Superman's new adventure could find a home in that second spot, once Batman (assuming the Ben Affleck co-written/directed/starring film is ready in time) has had his stand-alone fun.

With Suicide Squad now out, the DC universe next welcomes Wonder Woman's first solo adventure, featuring Gal Gadot and the origin of her Amazonian warrior in June 2017, with Superman back alongside Bats and joined by the other heroes in the first Justice League, which lands November the same year. You can watch the Wonder Woman trailer here. And head here for the Justice League footage screened at the San Diego Comic-Con this year.
