With less than 2 weeks until it’s official release no one can say that Man of Steel isn’t still gaining momentum. Not only is the Superman reboot the most anticipated summer movie to many comic book fans and casual moviegoers alike. But the enthusiasm for director Zack Snyder’s work is extending far beyond the big blue Boy Scout’s solo film.
People are talking a World’s Finest movie with Batman, rumors of a Justice League movie persist, will David S. Goyer write it? Will Zack Snyder direct it? Is it still being released in 2015? Even though as of now it has no officially attached director, and no cast to speak of save for Cavill’s Superman and maybe Reynold’s Green Lantern? How can the movie work without introducing the other characters in their own movies first like Marvel did before The Avengers?
So Collider made it pretty simple when they spoke with Snyder at the Los Angeles Man of Steel junket recently, they asked about the Justice League movie and if that would get his attention before a Man of Steel sequel. Snyder responded:
“I feel like you need to get Superman a little further down the road before you can do a Justice League movie.”
Probably not the answer many fan boys wanted to hear, but it makes the most sense. It’s already known Superman is taking on more than one Zod in Man of Steel, it actually looks like a troop if not an army. I’m also assuming he survives (of course). So then in the next movie all of a sudden he needs a team? No, that needs to be developed, the groundwork for that sort of threat need to be laid down first. Don’t take it from me, listen to Zack Snyder in the video below:
