Russell Crowe Discusses Man of Steel Sequel That was Suppose to Happen

Before Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the rest of the DC Extended Universe was announced, that there was originally going to be a Man of Steel 2 that was said to feature the DC Comics character Metallo as the villain. In fact, one of the reasons for David S. Goyer’s exit from the film universe was that he had written a Man of Steel sequel, but once the agreement was to introduce Batman and set up Justice League, he decided to stay with DC through television.

Now Russell Crowe, who played Jor-El in Man of Steel recently spoke with Digital Spy while promoting his latest film The Nice Guys, where he shed more light on the behind the scenes changes that occurred between Man of Steel’s completion and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
