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.
