While Marvel has been hitting homeruns with critics and fans, DC and Warner Bros. have been struggling to bring their superheroes to life, unless his name is Batman. However, on June 14th, that’s all going to change, as the studios are releasing director Zack Snyder’s MAN OF STEEL and I’m pretty sure it’s going to be the start of a new billion-dollar franchise.
In addition to making Superman cool again, the studios have other plans that require his help: their JUSTICE LEAGUE movie. While rumors have the movie being released in 2015, as of now, no director is officially attached, and no one is sure if the movie would work without introducing the other characters in their own movies first (like Marvel did before THE AVENGERS). So when Collider sat with Snyder a few hours ago at the Los Angeles MAN OF STEEL junket, they asked his thoughts the JUSTICE LEAGUE movie and if that would get his attention before a MAN OF STEEL sequel:
“I feel like you need to get Superman a little further down the road before you can do a Justice League movie.”
He also offered some tidbits about some hints about the MAN OF STEEL sequel and the shared DC Cinematic Universe:
BEWARE SOME SERIOUS SPOILERS, I’M NOT KIDDING:
When Omelete spoke to Zack Snyder today, he revealed an awesome Easter Egg. Snyder told them:
“The Wayne Enterprises logo is on a satellite that Zod destroys.”
Once Snyder revealed a Wayne logo is in Man of Steel, they asked him if he would like to pair Batman and Superman in Man of Steel 2. He said:
“I don’t know. Everything is interesting at this point. And don’t forget that Lex is out there, doing who knows what…”
How awesome is it that Snyder found a way to get the Wayne logo in the movie! This is definitely the next step in setting up a Justice League movie.
END OF SPOILERS…AND HOLY CRAP.
