Not Justice League 2 but Man of Steel 2 will be directed by Zack Snyder reportedly.
Zack Snyder has high chances to direct Man of Steel 2. DC hired Zack Snyder in the past after Christopher Nolan’s advice to direct Man of Steel in 2013. Snyder continues to stay on track through his HBO Max Justice League but he is no longer going to direct the sequel of the Justice League movie.
Man of Steel 2
Though there is no such official announcement whether the Man of Steel will hit the screen. But fans are reportedly wanting more from director Zack Snyder apart from Justice League.
There were certain changes that DC was removing Henry Cavill from the role of Superman. But due to the support of Zack Snyder to keep Henry, DC might reconsider its decision.
Twitter is currently buzzing with the #HenryCavillSuperman trend. And director Zack Snyder also supported this trend. He officially wants Henry Cavill to reprise his role as Superman. Zack and Henry’s collaboration did make magic in MAN of Steel 2013. The movie was hit and grossed $668 million worldwide.
Man of Steel 2 was on the board of DCEU for many years. Their priority was to continue Superman’s story forward. But due to Zack Snyder’s Justice League that priority was kept away. Fans got Justice League, Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman 1984, Shazam and many movies of DCEU, but no sign of Man of Steel 2.
Before the Man of Steel got released in 2013, DC was in talks of making Man of Steel 2. And they wanted to bring Zack Snyder as director and Davis S.Goyer as scriptwriter.
Fans don’t want what happened with the Justice League sequel. Zack Snyder left the movie at post-production, later he is all set to release his cut as web series in HBO Max. The #RestoreTheSnyderVerse worked here and fans are expecting Man of Steel will get some progression.
