DCEU Has Plans For More Superman Solo Movies!

Producer and director confirm plans for Superman solo movies

The DC Extended Universe was born in 2013 with Man of Steel hitting the theaters. The Superman solo movie was the first installment and for a good while, the recently released Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was supposed to be a Man of Steel sequel. But later, it was clarified that though it follows the events, it isn't a sequel to the Son of Krypton's standalone flick.

Warner Bros has the DCEU timeline announced and even though there are NINE more movies scheduled to release until 2020, a Superman solo movie isn't one of them! And we've been hearing about their plans for releasing a Batman standalone movie, we have heard not a single thing about a Man of Steel sequel. Does that mean the studio has no plans for it?

While speaking to IGN, Charles Roven gives us hope that they do have plans about making more Superman solo movies. Here's what the producer says:

We are at the process of looking at that. But we don't have on the schedule at the moment because we're quite busy with the movies that we have scheduled.

Zack Snyder believes it'd be "great" and "fun" to do a Man of Steel sequel if they could get "a good script". The director adds:

Part of the reason we haven’t announced the standalone Superman movie at this time was to support some of the events of this film.

The Superman of DCEU, Henry Cavill, thinks whether they do a standalone movie for his character "depends upon the success" of the March 25, 2016 release. The British actor explains:

If this (Batman v Superman) goes well, then we can start negotiating with Warner Bros to develop a standalone Superman, 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.

However, he would love that to happen. He adds:

It’s something I’d be very keen to do.

Despite its record-breaking opening weekend, Batman v Superman is dealing with a number of problems - poor reviews from the critics and the record-breaking second week drop. And not many have appreciated Cavill's performance as the Kryptonian superhero"¦ Ben Affleck's Batman and Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman have been praised overwhelmingly.

So, maybe Warner Bros will wait until Justice League Part One hits the theaters to decide on whether to go for Supe’s solo outing. However, Cavill isn't older than 32, so he's got more than a decade probably to suit up as Supe if he wants.
