The latest rumor concerning “Man of Steel 2” comes from Revenge of the Fans Editor-in-Chief Mario-Francisco Robles who states that Warner Bros. is supposedly targeting a 2020 release for the highly anticipated film.
Even though there is currently no director or script attached to the project, Robles revealed the latest update via the latest episode of El Fanboy Podcast suggesting that the studio is in the process of moving full-speed ahead on the direct sequel to the 2013 film.
As with all prior rumors concerning the film, this latest news should be taken with a grain of salt as it is not being reported direct from the studio or an official source and Robles himself has even stressed that, for now, it is strictly a rumor.
That being said, reports have stated that Matthew Vaughn has previously been in talks to direct “Man of Steel 2” and Superman himself, Henry Cavill has been teasing a return to the role in quite a few recent interviews. However, this still doesn’t guarantee a theatrical return of the Man of Steel in 2020.
Currently, Warner Bros. has three films lined up for release in the new future; James Wan’s “Aquaman” on December 21st, David Sandberg’s “Shazam!” in 2019, and Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman 2” on November 1st, 2019.
Superman is the brainchild of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster who first envisioned the character in 1932 and later had his first appearance in Action Comics #1 in June 1938. What Jerry and Joe did not know at the time was that they had created a character that would become the signature icon of DC Comics and the most universally recognized hero in human history.
Since 1938, the character of Superman/Clark Kent has appeared in every imaginable media form including television, film, novelizations, and even a Broadway show.
Being Superman is the childhood fantasy of every little boy and girl (they of course want to be Supergirl). He is an enduring emblem of the American dream, the young immigrant who comes to the United States, embraces the culture and makes something of himself and enriches his adopted nation. He is a classical hero in the modern age who fights criminals, rescues the helpless and has a sense of morals and justice as strong and unshakeable as he is.
