Ever since the release of 2013’s “Man of Steel”, fans have been clamoring for Superman to star in his own solo film again. After Big Blue shared the screen with Batman in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and the rest of his super friends in “Justice League”, the talk turned to ideas of a new Superman film, with a brighter Man of Steel ready to launch in to another movie on his own. But no Superman film has been listed on Warner Bros.’ slate.
Revenge of the Fans EIC Mario-Francisco Robles dropped a rumor about a possible “Man of Steel 2” a new episode of “El Fanboy” Podcast. According to his source at Warner Bros., they want the sequel to hit theaters in 2020.
