MAN OF STEEL 2 – Announced for many years, the sequel project to Man of Steel, starring Henry Cavill in the role of Superman, seems to be off to a bad start. What we know.
Will we ever see Henry Cavill again wearing Superman’s clothes? While it’s been several years since Man of Steel 2 was announced, the project of a sequel to the adventures of Superman seems more compromised than ever. Indeed, the main actor is engaged on other projects, in particular the series The Witcher where he holds the title role. At the microphone of Empire, his on-screen partner, Amy Adams who plays Loïs Lane, confirmed that the project was certainly going to take a very different direction: “I understand that the studio was considering a different path” a-t she announced, remaining however open to the idea of again embodying the journalist and companion of Superman. Indeed, according to information that has been circulating for several years, Henry Cavill may not resume his Superman costume and the DC franchise could be completely rebooted.
According to the Cosmicbook site, a total reboot of Superman could be planned, under the direction of JJ Abrams (Star Wars 7 and 9). It would seem in particular that the filmmaker is looking for another interpreter of the man of steel, younger than Henry Cavill. The Batman played by Ben Affleck is already giving way to Robert Pattinson in Matt Reeves’ future film, while Gal Gadot seems ready to continue wearing Wonder Woman’s outfit in the next films of the saga. We will now have to wait a little longer before finding out if Superman will suffer the same fate as the batman. As a reminder, Man of Steel, the first part of the adventures of Superman in the new DC cinematic universe, was released in 2013.
