Superman is set to return in his own solo outing according to new reports this evening!
According to TheWrap, a source close to the project has confirmed to the outlet that a sequel to Man of Steel is in active development at Warner Bros. This, if true, means Superman will return in a solo film and not just as part of an ensemble in the Justice League movies – something that we were never really sure would happen.
Given how the DC Expanded Universe is still on critical tenterhooks after Suicide Squad (we liked it!) & Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Warner Bros. will be looking for what they feel is a sure thing and perhaps they feel a new Superman movie is the key to winning back confidence in the DC brand.
Thus far, Warner Bros. have declined to comment on this rumour but we’d be inclined to keep an eye on how things progress. It would be crazy to see WB/DC sustain a shared universe without utilising Henry Cavill in a solo film. Of course, before we see any Superman/Man of Steel sequel, we still have Wonder Woman, Justice League, Aquaman & The Flash along with a Batman movie!
