The success of Man of Steel at the weekend has made it even more likely that we will soon get a number of new movies featuring famous DC characters.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Warner Bros. is already in development on a sequel to Zack Snyder’s new film and is expected to fast track that for release as soon as 2014, said a source.
“It’s more than just a franchise for us, it really opens up the door to do combinations of the DC Comics characters,” said Dan Fellman, Warner’s president of domestic distribution.
“We can build them up like Marvel did and benefit from the history of DC.”
In addition, the studio has long been developing a Justice League team-up movie featuring characters such as the Flash, Martian Manhunter and Wonder Woman that could come out as soon as 2015.
