Seeing as Man of Steel has already set a new record for the highest opening ever in June (take that, Toy Story 3), it's no surprise Warner Bros. is anxious to continue the franchise. And according to The Wall Street Journal, it looks like we could see the return of Kal-El sooner than you may expect. According to the website, the studio is "expected to fast track" Man of Steel 2 and we can expect to see it as soon as 2014. Keep in mind, that's not saying it's guaranteed to come out that soon, but they're saying it's certainly a possibility. Additionally, Justice League (featuring the likes of Flash, Wonder Woman, etc) could hit as soon as 2015.

What do you think, Viners? Are you stoked to hear you'll see more of DC on the big screen so soon, or would you rather have them take more time with the projects?

Yay a writer that isn't saying it "will" arrive in 2014. :D Not saying i wouldn't love to see a sequel next year.

As long as they don't rush the product...

#6 Posted by ultimatepunchrod (88 posts) - - Show Bio

Honestly, I hope it doesn't come that soon. I don't want a rushed product; I want something done with care even if that takes a few more years.

Seems like they would rush if it's due too soon.

#8 Posted by Rich711 (259 posts) - - Show Bio

They will have to fast track it because MoS 1 is completely forgettable.

Personally I found the film to be about a 7/10. But it definitely made me very excited for a sequel.

#10 Edited by DCVibe (38 posts) - - Show Bio

No need to rush, if it was a two-parter movie then I would say the second movie should be released early next year.

If they are going by box office numbers, we waited 3 years after Batman Begins for Dark Knight and 4 years after for Dark Knight Rises and each did well despite the long wait so, we, the audience can wait. Mostly because in the end those movies were great.

I would not recommend releasing another DC character movie due to the possibility of failing like Green Lantern which may prevent any JL film.

But still,the film was good...although I agree with these,but it only says it's a possibility...in which it won't happen..

I hope this is the case. I would love to see MoS2 by 2014, if possible.

MOS was supposed to be the start of DC Cinematic Universe. If then by that time there are already 2 MOS films and no other solo movies, how would they expect the audience to feel more invested in a Justice League?

Introduce Wonder Woman, then either Aquaman or Flash (Barry).

#15 Edited by Z3RO180 (6709 posts) - - Show Bio

Not happy. Man of Steel was a beat film and the need to take the time on the sequel to make that to great. If they fast track it so it comes out next year then it will be rushed and become a bad movie

Justice League serves as the perfect opportunity to get people interested in characters like the ones you've mentioned and, in turn, generate interest in solo films for the characters. In the meantime, they'll be lured in because it's more of Superman and Batman.

I'd love to see another Superman movie but now if it's rushed, Man of Steel took 3 years and it was awesome, i'd be fine if it was 2015 for the sequel

#18 Posted by RustyRoy (13900 posts) - - Show Bio

Too soon.

#19 Edited by War Killer (20292 posts) - - Show Bio

I really don't expect to see another DC film, of any character, until around 2015. Personally I feel DC should focus on Man of Steel 2, the Batman reboot film, and a Wonder Woman film. Using those three movies as the pillars upon which the Justice League movie is built, and then follow the JL movie with maybe a reboot of Green Lantern, along with other characters like Flash, Aquaman, etc.

#20 Posted by StMichalofWilson (4101 posts) - - Show Bio

I hope they take time to give the movie more depth. Like humanize Clark more and feature villains that really challenge his mortality, like (I may get hate for this but screw you guys) Lex Luthor or Brainiac. Mostly Brainiac

#21 Posted by TheHeat (455 posts) - - Show Bio

Will WB ever learn?

Also, Toy Story 3 > MOS

#22 Posted by johnny_spam (2020 posts) - - Show Bio

I liked the movie but still it had a few problems that could have been solved just by thinking a little longer about the story. I am worried that just because it made so much money that the filmmakers do not pay attention to the criticisms. Some faults were overblown but still I would hope they try and improve the sequel.

#23 Posted by Deranged Midget (17968 posts) - - Show Bio

I personally don't think Man of Steel 2 will come out until 2015 at the earliest. Why? Because WB and DC know that even though it received critically mixed reviews, it was still a box office success. How to improve on people's opinions for a sequel? Up the ante in terms of character development and plot. Action is a no brainer for Snyder.

I hope they give it more time,lesser margin for error,you did the first one well,now to do the next one better,Don't rush it WB,if this is the batman begins of superman movies the next ones gotta be the dark knight.

#26 Posted by Shallbecomeabattoo (368 posts) - - Show Bio

Finally! I don't want them to rush, BUT they kinda have to, since the general audiences hunger for superhero movies won't be like this for another ten years. I kinda hope they gat a new Batman out befor JL as well, since I don't want the new take on my favorite character to be introduced outside of a Batman movie. If they choose to continue from Nolans version (which I would be fine with, especially with Bale) they could do a JL movie first.

as long as they do a good job and pick a good lex luthor im fine

That is what I was initially thinking after reading the New 52 Justice League 1-6. What Johns did there introducing the characters, the way they interact with each other (OMG that Aquaman page) was really fluid and fun. And I can not think of any better way of their first encounter than that. So I thought solo movies first 'coz I dont think WB will adapt Johns' Justice League (I hope made sense lol)

Ofc WB is going to milk superman for all its worth. That's all they know how to do. Superman, Batman,Superman,Batman,Superman,Batman. Apparently these are the ONLY 2 super heroes they feel can do well in the Box office. I'm really surprised they are going as far as to do a Justice League movie. Considering they are only doing it because they seen Avengers made some serious bank its still cool. I really hope they stop messing around and start pushing out movies like Marvel because if they are only going to do Superman and Batman animated and live action movies then I guess Marvel are going to keep Blowing DC out the water. ( For all the super literal people GL live action was a movie. I know this but that movie didn't do well and was straight garbage. Also i know there has been a few other animated DC movies out but 90% of them have been batman superman. )

Please don't rush this. If it gets rushed, then it will end up like batman and robin...

I'd much rather they took the time to iron out the problems with MOS before making a sequel.

I'd prefer a Wonder Woman or Flash film.

#33 Posted by Sifighter (94 posts) - - Show Bio

I actually get why they would rush this up. Marvel already has a huge movie universe which will grow even larger with the next couple of years with a huge fanbase while DC has had trouble with making any superhero movie besides Nolan's Batman good, I mean look at green lantern. So yeah they are going to rush it so that they can compete with Marvel, that's basically what it is.

#34 Posted by fartvader (47 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm having a hard time thinking who among Flash's rouge gallery will be good for a grounded Flash movie.

#35 Posted by Sifighter (94 posts) - - Show Bio

@fartvader:

I would think The Rouges or Gorilla Grodd

#36 Posted by batmannflash (6226 posts) - - Show Bio

don't rush the sequel, and it's okay. I would rather see them start to make solo films for other DC characters.

Why does it have to be grounded? Make Thawne the villain and have them zipping through time.

This rush makes me nervous. Hold on DC, you're just starting to get some traction here. Please don't blow it

#39 Edited by Extremis (3363 posts) - - Show Bio

Wish I could say I was psyched to hear this. Them fast tracking any of this, considering what we've seen thus far with Nolan out of the director's chair, has me worried. They really need to make sure they're getting talented writers and directors for these projects. David S. Goyer has done a fine job mostly, but DC/Warner can't always rely on Goyer and Nolan to guide these projects. Because right now, without them, they'd be nothing.

It'll be interesting to see the names being attached to projects as we go forward. Because I can't say Im pumped for MoS2 seeing what Snyder sharted out with such a great story by Nolan and Goyer.

#41 Posted by drphilter (104 posts) - - Show Bio

@ultimatepunchrod: If they got started now, aimed for a late Summer release, it may not be so bad. Perhaps adopt Nolan's third weekend of July as the official DC release date, kinda like Marvel has first weekend in May locked up usually.

I'd love to see a sequel so soon, but I really hope it doesn't come out feeling to rushed like Iron Man 2.

That movie was basically: "Okay let's see if we can squeeze another movie in before May 2012!"

It was pretty much a two hour preview for Avengers.

#45 Posted by Nova`Prime` (4165 posts) - - Show Bio

Just from some of the reviews I've seen and its mixed on the movie, it did outstanding in the box office, but if they rush a sequel I think they run the risk of ruining what they are trying to build. The rewards don't measure up to the risk.

#46 Posted by G_Money_Christmas (884 posts) - - Show Bio

Why the rush?

Money. I'm excited though. I still haven't seen Man of Steel, though. I was supposed to go yesterday but plans changed so I'm going on Saturday. I already know I'm going to love it and I'm glad for a new one. And supposedly, Justice League's future stemmed from how good this did and looks like it's a go.

NO....calm down WB calm down.
No need to rush things....take your time we can wait a couple more years :-).

#48 Posted by Lurkero (237 posts) - - Show Bio

Quality first please. DC and Warner don't have Disney money so they shouldn't even be trying to compete at that level.

#49 Posted by GodDamnIronMan (1553 posts) - - Show Bio

It's just stupid how we are more worry about these comic books movie than the studio. Seriously, guys, those people invest heavily on the movies, if the movie failed, they bleed money...don't you think they have already thought of that? and what do we have to lost? expectations? give it couples of years, we'll recover from it (see Batman & Robin & Spiderman 3).

If they don't have the confident and resources, they won't rush it, they already have full plan! (Marvel produces 5 Avengers films in 5 years! and it works!).....So, calm down guys...I think they had learned from previous mistakes. As long as the scripts come out, cast is ready, then it is good to go. Studio's stuff are all ready 24/7.

#50 Posted by The Stegman (25989 posts) - - Show Bio

Eh, I have mixed feelings. While I'm anxious to see a Man of Steel sequel and Justice League, if they do this too quickly, many things can slip by unnoticed, making the movie bad. Guess time will tell.
