With Henry Cavill’s Superman committed to sharing the big screen in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and the upcoming two-part “Justice League” saga, Superman fans who want to see another standalone film dedicated to their Kryptonian hero may have to wait a while.
Speaking with IGN about the possibility, director Zack Snyder, actor Henry Cavill and producer Charles Roven were asked about chances for that proper sequel to “Man of Steel” to be made before Cavill’s time in the role is up. Here’s their responses:
Snyder: “I think if we can get a good script, it would be great to get a standalone Superman movie. I think that would be fun to do… Part of the reason we didn’t announce a standalone superhero movie is to support some of the event of [Batman v Superman].”
Cavill: “I do believe it depends on the success of this movie. If this goes well then we can start to negotiate with Warner Bros. for a standalone Superman movie. But they’ve got their plans set out for other stuff and Justice Leagues and various other movies, so it’s about finding the time, really. It’s something that I would be very keen to do.”
Roven: “We’re in the process of looking at that, but we don’t have it on the schedule at the moment because we’re quite busy with the movies that we have scheduled.”
“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” is currently in cinemas.
