Could Snyder’s Man of Steel be the first film in Justice League movie universe? Snyder speaks

November 27th, 2012 by Marc Comments


We have all heard that the Justice League movie was coming. We have all heard that The Man Of Steel would tie into it. But we haven’t heard anything from anyone official until now. Sort of.

MoS director Zack Snyder, but according to the New York Post, he’s has answered a few questions about the role, if any, his take on Superman would paly in the lead up to a Justice League movie.

Snyder, talking about the movie, said: “I don’t know how ‘Justice League’ is going to be handled. Honestly, I don’t. But ‘The Man of Steel’ exists, and Superman is in it. I don’t know how you’d move forward without acknowledging that.”

Talking directly about a League movie and would he be involved: “How can I answer that? I can’t really say anything to that, because that’s a big spoiler. I will say, yeah, they trust me to keep them on course.”

Finally, on the chances of a Man of Steel sequel:  “We approach the film as a single endeavor. There are a lot of gears that have to turn in the world of commerce and the world of the mythology we create to facilitate more adventures for this character. We’ll see what happens.”

So is Man of Steel the first step in the path leading to the Justice League? Does this mean Nolan’s Batman and Reynolds’ Green Lantern are officially NOT tied in? We’ll all know when Man of Steel hits on June 14 2013…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
