Okay here we go, thank you to superherohype for providing me with some comic book information to blog about. Today it’s on the future of the next Superman film, Man of Steel and I think that the article that follows is pretty interesting:
“It’s no secret that everyone involved in the production of next summer’s Man of Steel is not saying much about the movie. We’ve gotten a handful of quotes about the movie, but nothing that goes into extensive detail. Another thing we don’t know is whether star Henry Cavill will be portraying the character in the proposed Justice League film, but are there already plans for a Man of Steelsequel?
In an interview with E!, director Zack Snyder danced around the question: “We like to take it one step at a time and not curse anything. It’s that kind of thing so we’ll see what happens.”
Time will tell, but with a tentpole film like this, there’s no doubt that WB is mulling over its future prospects.
Henry Cavill plays Superman in the June 14, 2013 release. Amy Adams stars as Daily Planet journalist Lois Lane, and Laurence Fishburne as her editor-in-chief, Perry White. Starring as Clark Kent’s adoptive parents, Martha and Jonathan Kent, are Diane Lane and Kevin Costner.
Squaring off against the superhero are two other surviving Kryptonians, the villainous General Zod, played by Michael Shannon, and Faora, Zod’s evil partner, played by Antje Traue. Also from Superman’s native Krypton are Lara Lor-Van, Superman’s mother, played by Ayelet Zurer, and Superman’s father, Jor-El, portrayed by Russell Crowe. Rounding out the cast are Harry Lennix as U.S. military man General Swanwick, as well as Christopher Meloni as Colonel Hardy.”
I think that it’s good that Snyder is keeping quiet on the progress of Man of Steel and not revealing any addition information about it. Too many people in the film industry give away too much information about their plans for sequels and it ruins the surprise, and while I would like to see some more media coverage on Man of Steel, ‘m sure when the time comes there will be tons of info heading our way.
