Zack Snyder and David S Goyer will return for Man Of Steel sequel

Justice League movie also in development

Much of the talk surrounding a potential Justice League movie has suggested that the likelihood of such a project is dependent on how well Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel performs at the box office.

However, according to a report from Deadline, not only is a Justice League movie in the works, but Warner has already given the green light for Snyder and David S. Goyer to return for Man Of Steel 2.

It sounds as though the studio has seen enough to be convinced of Snyder's capabilities with the property, with no need to wait and examine the box office performance of the first film.

The report also claims that Goyer will also be writing a Superman-centric Justice League movie, following comments from Snyder that such a project was very much a possibility.

“Do the DC characters exist in the universe I created?" asks Snyder, in an interview with Hero Complex. "The answer is yes. In my mind, we have this fantastic character of Superman. It’s not madness that there would be others."

“Now, that being said, does a Justice League movie exist now? No. Whether or not I ever get to make that movie, I don’t know… What is real is that there’s a crack — a foot — in the door. That’s promising. The door is definitely open.”

Finally, Deadline's report also claims that producer and story co-writer Christopher Nolan's role won't be as 'full blown' for the sequel, which isn't surprising, given that he's working on a brand new sci-fi epic, Interstellar.

Directed by Snyder and co-starring Henry Cavill, Michael Shannon and Amy Adams, Man Of Steel opens in the UK on 14 June 2013.

      Surely they could use the emergence of Superman as a reason that Bruce Wayne would come back once he has seen the level of powerful enemies that could be out there (still hate what they did at teh end of TDKR though!).

      Agreed with @endofdays. A random new Batman introduced in a Justice League movie would be hard to swallow at this point.

      But will a new Batman still be hard to swallow in four or five years from now??

      Chances are, they go for the 'Marvel' play and put in a Bats cameo in the credits of MoS2, just to 'show face'. I doubt they'll reboot just to fit JL.

      Just shelve the JLA idea and allow DC characters to appear in the other movies.
