David Goyer Addresses Controversial Man Of Steel Ending

Warner Bros. has put another Superman film on the back burner. The film has struggled to get even a sequel announcement and now that Henry Cavill will no longer play Superman, it seems very unlikely we will ever get a Man of Steel 2. The only possible person who could have prevented this all from happening was Mission: Impossible – Fallout director Christopher McQuarrie. The filmmaker had worked with Cavill on the latest Mission: Impossible film, and even talked to the actor about a possible sequel. However, nothing came of it.

But this wouldn’t be the first time that he has been approached to direct a DCEU film. A new interview also reveals that he was also in the mix to direct Green Lantern. More on the report below.

Black Panther Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger

The fallout of Henry Cavill‘s exit from the role of Superman as a part of Warner Brothers’ DC Extended Universe continues. Of course, the next step for the studio is to find Cavill’s replacement, and it didn’t take them too long to come up with a brilliant name. New reports say that the studio is considering Creed star Michael B. Jordan to play the new Man of Steel.

This obviously would be a huge departure for the hero who has normally been portrayed as Caucasian. However, the studio is also putting a higher priority on Supergirl. So before we start cheering, we’ve got to wait for more than just a consideration. Much more on the reports below.

David Goyer Addresses Controversial Man Of Steel Ending

Warner Brothers’ DCEU, or the DC Extended Universe, has had its share of problems. One of its major issues is that most of the films that have been released could never match the critical or commercial success of Marvel Studios releases.

The other is having an actor commit to playing their respective superheroes. In the latest shocking development, Henry Cavill will no longer play Superman. The move could give way to change how WB moves forward with its DC films. More on the story below.

SXSW 2018: How Syfy’s Superman-Less ‘Krypton’ Will Still Embody The Man Of Steel

Syfy's Krypton

Creators of the upcoming Syfy series Krypton were on hand at DC’s pop-up SXSW store this weekend to share what fans can expect from a Superman TV show, which doesn’t actually include Superman himself.

For those living under a rock, Krypton is a prequel series set about 200 years before the explosion of the planet Krypton, which comic geeks will know is the event that led to baby Kal-El to be sent off in a rocket headed for Earth. As such, the show will focus on Superman’s grandfather Seg-El, father Jor-El, and a smattering of characters from the greater DC universe. And since the planet Krypton orbits a red sun, Kryptonians won’t exactly have the sort of powers we’re used to seeing in Metropolis, so to speak. Still, Krypton’s show creators explained that this makes for fertile ground when it comes to storytelling.

While past reboots of Superman have put a greater focus on the Man of Steel’s life as reporter Clark Kent, newly hired DC Comics writer Brian Michael Bendis’ take on the character will be closely tied to the ideals of good journalism, the scribe explained during a panel at this year’s SXSW.

“I actually spent the day shadowing an Oregonian [journalist], just to show you how important the daily planet is to the stories we’ll be telling,” Bendis told Geeks Of Doom in response to a question about how the current climate of “fake news” and misinformation currently plaguing society might impact the storytelling. “On top of that, Journalism [is] under siege in my lifetime like it’s never been before.”

Superman Donut wall

One huge benefit of reuniting Superman with his iconic red trunks is the amount of attention it creates, which is very useful for DC Comics as it embarks on a brand new era for the Man of Steel. Case in point, the promotion pairs red underwear featuring #thetrunksareback hashtag on the back as well as a wall of Voodoo Doughnuts in the shape of Superman’s shield at this year’s SXSW (see photos above and below).

Superman Lives! ‘Man Of Steel’ Sequel Reportedly In Development At Warner Bros.

Man of Steel

Three years after it launched DC Comics’ cinematic universe with a $668 million global box office gross, the Zack Snyder-directed Superman reboot Man of Steel is finally getting a standalone sequel, as an unnamed source familiar with the developing film at Warner Bros. told Umberto Gonzalez at The Wrap.

Plans for a sequel were changed not long after Man of Steel was released in the summer of 2013 when Snyder announced at that year’s San Diego Comic-Con that the follow-up would pit Superman against Batman. The end result, released this past March, was Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which also featured the first appearance of Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash, and Cyborg.

Time for a family picture! The CW has released a first image of Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and her cousin Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) in their full red and blues. Clark Kent had been mentioned on the show in Season 1, by… pretty much everybody. Plus, BFF James Olsen (Mechad Brooks) left one Kryptonian for a prettier one. And Kara has been chatting with him online. He made a brief shadow of an appearance in the “Myriad” episode… saving Kara from Reactron then whooshing away.
