It looks as though ‘Man of Steel’ is just the beginning…
According to ‘Batman V Superman’ director Zack Snyder, we could eventually see another Superman solo movie… despite DC’s pretty crammed slate.
“I think if we could get a good script it’d be great to have a standalone Superman movie,” he told IGN. “I think that would be fun to do.”
Henry Cavill’s Superman recently appeared in the DC superhero epic, ‘Batman V Superman’.
But is there really enough demand for another solo film?
“We’re in the process of looking at [another Superman film],” said producer Charles Roven. “But we don’t have it on the schedule at the moment because we’re quite busy with the movies that we have scheduled.”
Of course, Warner Bros. still has plenty to do when it comes to DC’s upcoming movies… and with a number of solo films on the cards (including ‘The Flash’, ‘Wonder Woman’ and ‘Aquaman’) as well as ‘Suicide Squad’ and ‘Justice League’, they do have their hands full.
But Henry Cavill remains as keen as ever.
“If [Batman V Superman] goes well, then we can start negotiating with Warner Bros. to develop a standalone Superman,” he said. “But they’ve got their plans set out for other stuff and Justice Leagues and various other movies, so it’s about finding the time really. It’s something I’d be very keen to do.”
But will Warner Bros. take a punt?
‘Batman V Superman’ may have performed rather well at the box office in its opening weekend, but a sharp decline in figures has left studio execs scratching their heads. And let’s face it – ‘Man of Steel’ wasn’t exactly warmly received, either.
Either way, there’s no denying – there’s still plenty of room for this Superman to grow.
But do audiences care enough to see it? For now, we’ll have to wait and see.
