So we only just posted that the DC Cinematic Universe may have found its Shazam! (here) and last night we confirmed the Harley Quinn movie (here) and now it looks like the much-rumoured Man of Steel 2 (here) has just been confirmed too.
Now Henry Cavill’s new manager, Dany Garcia, has been talking about the actor’s upcoming slate and, it seems, his bid for fortune and fame, kid, fortune and fame… look, she’s The Rock’s agent, so she can say these things, ok?
Anyway, Garcia said of Cavill’s work commitments: “Henry has a big appetite. We’ve been in a five-month period of time where he’s re-strategizing, acquiring property [for his production company Promethean], he’s filming [Justice League] now, he’s in development for the Superman standalone… he’s beginning to expand that world. It’s beautifully teed up. In a year from now, or two years from now, he’s going to be a force globally.”
Yup, “he’s in development for the Superman standalone”.
Well, it seems that with Geoff Johns at the helm of the DCCU (here) things are moving along nicely, despite luke-warm receptions to the DC Movies by critics – but hey, as fans, we love them.
We’re excited for this and we can’t help feeling that, while everyone is tied up in how dark Superman is these days, we could be set for a lighter, more hopeful version in MoS 2…
