Warner Bros. upcoming Superman reboot “Man of Steel”, Directed by Zack Snyder, is due in cinemas in June 2013, with Production being “godfathered” by Christopher Nolan, who has just completed his own highly successful series of Batman films with Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and the The Dark Knight Rises. The film stars British actor Henry Cavill as Superman and also stars Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, Michael Shannon as the villainous General Zod and Laurence Fishburne as Daily Planet editor Perry White.
There is also speculation of that “Man of Steel” could also Tie-In with a forthcoming Justice League of America film. When quizzed by the the New York Post about links to the 2015 Avengers-style film director Zack Snyder hinted that Man of Steel could be used to set up a proposed Justice League movie. featuring Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman uniting in a single cause. Snyder’s comments have been widely interpreted as a clear sign that Warner will use Man of Steel as a launchpad for a series of linked movies set in the DC Comics universe, just as Disney’s Marvel Studios did with its selection of films (beginning with 2008’s Iron Man) in order to set up The Avengers Assemble. There is also speculation that Batman could show up in Man of Steel, possibly in a post credits sequence.
During The Dark Knight Rises (Which is out on DVD soon) John Gordon-Levitt’s Gotham police officer John Blake played an important role, and there has been speculation that Blake could step into Batman’s role in the Justice League of America film, after Christian Bale had his rather interesting encounter with Bane (Tom Hardy) (Of course he could also be playing Robin or Nightwing). There is also speculation that one other actor from the Nolan films will do “something” in the JLA film and there are is also the prospect of many other forthcoming films to look forward to, with Iron Man 3, Thor 2: The Dark World , Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy being released in 2014, and Antman, the Avengers 2 and Justice League of America being released in 2015.
