Zack Snyder Says ‘Batman V. Superman’ Is ‘Man Of Steel 2’


In an interview with Canoe, Zack Snyder ended up talking about more than the Dorito’s Super Bowl contest. He started talking about the rumors that were flying around a possible Man of Steel 2 by saying,

I think in a way Batman V Superman is Man of Steel 2…Justice League is kind of the transcendent, knights-of-the-round-table of the story. It’d be interesting to think about what a standalone Superman movie might be.

With Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice picking up where Man of Steel ended makes it seem like a sequel in the regard that it picks up where the other movie ended. However, outside of that there doesn’t really seem to be any strong sequel vibe going on. The fact that DC has more on its plate makes it seem like they are more focused on getting things set up for the Justice League movie set to come out in 2017. As well as the other amazing movies like Wonder Woman being released that same year and Suicide Squad in 2016. So as far as the caped crusader goes it looks like fans of Superman will have to wait on another solo movie. But don’t get too discouraged as it doesn’t seem that Zack isn’t opposed to another Superman solo film. If you could direct the Man of Steel 2, who or what would you put in it and why? Comment and let us know.

Hey everyone, my name is Brandon and it has always been a dream to work in comic books. And to do this is amazing and a lot of fun for me because not only do I get to read and write about what DC Comics is doing but it gives me more insight into who the characters are.

    Zack Snider should cut the B.S. , we all know by now that this will be another Batman movie. The moment they said they wanted to give Batman more leading role on this movie, I figure it out. I’m very disappointed.

      I do feel that Batman is getting a lot of the spot light and as a Batman fan I am a 100% okay with all the new stuff that is coming up/out. But I do feel that there is more to the DC Universe than Batman, Harley Quinn, and Joker. Personally, I do feel that Superman should get at least one or two more movies to not portray him as a whiny little boy. However, Superman’s backstory can’t really be altered that much before he no longer is Superman and gets lost in Hollywood’s glamour.
