We are sure you all heard the recent big news surrounding Man of Steel 2. Rumors started to spread about Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller taking over the Man of Steel franchise. This obviously had some fans jumping up and down.
But those fans might get tired of jumping before the next film is released. The movie isn’t officially on Warner Bros. Pictures’ schedule for their DC Comics cinematic universe. And this schedule stretches five years into the future! So what the heck is going on?
Den of Geek is reporting that while WB is still interested in bringing Miller on board to make a DC film, they are not so interested in developing Man of Steel 2. Sources claim the project is on “permanent hold.”
Sadly, the sources didn’t really explain what that means exactly. It could be something simple. Maybe they just have too much on their plate right now to give the project the attention it deserves. We are sure Superman will get his own adventure again soon, you know, if you consider 5-10 years to be soon.
Hopefully the rumors of Miller directing the project are true. That would get me excited to watch this film. If he’s not going to direct it, then I honestly don’t care how long it takes to get made.
