As fans of Henry Cavill’s Superman continue to wonder whether they’ll see Superman on the big screen again any time soon, Jay Oliva (who worked as a storyboard artist on “Man of Steel”) has revealed via Twitter that “Man of Steel” was originally intended to be the first of a five film story.
Man of Steel was never meant to have a sequel because it was supposed to be chapter 1 of a 5 chapter story. Notice how BvS follows exactly after MoS? It’s like book two of Harry Potter.

With “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” following on directly from “Man of Steel”, and then “Justice League” following on directly after that, there’s plenty of speculation amongst fans that a “Man of Steel 2” film and a second “Justice League” movie were originally part of the plans formulated by director Zack Snyder that would have made up those five chapters.
Whether or not we’ll get to see Henry Cavill in another Superman film is unknown at this point in time. He is rumored to have a cameo appearance in 2019’s “SHAZAM!” movie, but whether he’ll ever fly solo as the Man of Steel in another film is anyone’s guess at this point in time.
