Zack Snyder Producing Man of Steel 2 for a 2020 Release?

It has been confirmed that Man of Steel 2 is in early development and Henry Cavill would reprise his role as Superman. It was also been confirmed that Zack Snyder was working on a secret project with Geoff Johns, the co-runner of DC Films.

Now, according to a reliable source that secret project is in fact Man of Steel 2. Our source does say that the film has no script at the moment but the studio wants to release it in 2020. Production on the film should start in 2018, but only if a script is ready to be made. No word on a writer, but Geoff Johns is likely co-writing the script, as he has co-written the other films in development.

This could be the start of a “Phase 2” for the DC Extended Universe. Similar to how Iron Man started Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Zack Snyder will still be involved with Man of Steel 2, not as a director, but only as the producer. No word yet on if he is still directing Justice League 2.

Jesse Eisenberg is so far the only returning cast member as he is still contracted, but more than likely Amy Adams and Laurence Fishburne will be returning.

The last piece of information that the source was able to give us is that the dates for the 2019 and 2020 films are still set to be made, but it all depends on the success of Justice League.

Please take all of this with a grain of salt, the source is reliable and trustworthy, but none of this information has been confirmed by Warner Bros. or parties involved.

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

    I’m pretty sure that Man of Steel 2 will arrive on November 2019, Justice League Dark probably in 2020. I don’t think that the dates of 2019 and 2020 will be influenced by the success of Justice League, considering that the DCEU is already a success. The pre-production of the 2019 movies will begin before the release of Justice League. I don’t know about your source, but for me is just a rumor or consideration, there aren’t proof about that.

    The question is what will the DCEU look like in 2020. 2017 is going to be a rough year for the DCEU, much rougher than 2015. BvS under performed and got demolished by critics and was not received very well by the fans. Suicide Squad was a financial success but the poor reaction isn’t a good look. Justice League is DOA and is probably going to make less than BvS box office wise (there’s a Pixar movie opening 4 days after JL’s release, not to mention Thor 3 featuring the Hulk two weeks before and Star Wars 8 three weeks later). Not to mention the fact that Zack Snyder hasn’t had a flat out box office hit since 300 and has never been a critical darling.

    Wonder Woman is surrounded by tough competition with Kingsmen 2, The Mummy and Transformers 5 in consecutive. if WW has the same reaction as BvS and SS it’s going to fall off the face of the earth.

    The Flash will come out in 2018 but will anyone care after potentially four back to back to back to back critical bombs. Plus can Justice League repair Superman’s tarnished image from MOS and BvS? You always have Affleck’s Batman movie.

    YESSSS. I hope that some other “Super-Family” characters get teased or introduced altogether, like Superboy, Supergirl and Power Girl. Maybe have them as clones engineered by Cadmus as anti-Superman counter-measures who’ve been trained since “birth” to think Superman is the enemy.

  • 2020 is a long time to wait for Man of Steel 2, but I am over the moon that it’s coming.
    We’ve got plenty of great DCEU movies coming out in the meantime to hold us over.
