Man of Steel 2 Is Being Developed by DC, Superman Actor's Manager Confirms
"Henry has a big appetite."
Last month it was rumoured that Warner were looking to make a sequel to its 2013's Superman hit Man of Steel. The manager of star Henry Cavill has now confirmed the news, revealing that the DC film is in active development at the studio.
In a new interview with Newsweek, Cavill's manager, Dany Garcia, stated that Man of Steel 2 was one of the projects that the actor was currently working on. "Henry has a big appetite," she said. "We've been in a five-month period of time where he's re-strategizing, acquiring property [for his production company], he's filming [Justice League] now, he's in development for the Superman standalone.
"He's beginning to expand that world. It's beautifully teed up. In a year from now, or two years from now, he's going to be a force globally."
Cavill played Superman for the first time in Man of Steel and reprised the role in this year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. He'll next be seen in Justice League--in August, the actor teased a potential new-look for the character.
Man of Steel made $668 million at the global box office and represented the first entry in the DC Cinematic Universe. In August, a source for The Wrap told the site that a new Superman movie is a "top priority" for Warner.
Earlier this year, Man of Steel actor Russell Crowe said the studio originally planned to make more standalone Superman movies but later elected to pursue a DC film that featured both Superman and Batman.
