The Long-Awaited Sequel

The need for Man of Steel 2, the sole solo Superman film starring Henry Cavill, has always existed. Just not from everyone in the DC Extended Universe’s top positions of authority. However, as said, “the hierarchy of power in the DC universe” has altered, and the next DC films will reflect this transition.

The controversial Superman film Man of Steel, directed by Zack Snyder, marked Henry Cavill’s Superman debut over ten years ago. Before making an appearance in Justice League with a terrifyingly blurred face, he made a comeback in Batman v Superman. With his version of Justice League, Snyder made amends for wrongs in the theatrical release by dressing Cavill in the black suit and giving him the resurrection he truly deserved. It seemed like Cavill had returned after Black Adam and Batgirl were cancelled. And now, it appears that Dwayne Johnson’s marketing tagline will really come to pass, with the Black Adam actor reportedly exerting more control over DC Extended Universe films. And this is all taking place despite Henry Cavill’s formed shoulders being attributed for the box office failure of recent DC films.

Is There a Man of Steel 2 Release Date?

Man of Steel 2 will unfortunately not be coming anytime soon. It seems like Cavill’s intent on returning to the role in October 2022 following his cameo appearance in Black Adam was short-lived since James Gunn and Peter Safan, the new DCU directors, have a different vision for the character that excludes Cavill. Cavill was left out of the upcoming Superman film by Gunn and Safran because he would have been too old for their version of Clark Kent and would instead play the hero as a young reporter just starting out in his superhero career. Man of Steel took around 5 years from conception to release Man of Steel 2 might not be released until 2027 as a result.

Man of Steel 2 Cast: Who’s in It?

Henry Cavill as Superman would have been introduced if Man of Steel 2 had been made. Naturally, Amy Adams would have returned as Lois Lane, and other characters from Snyder’s DCEU films would have done the same, including Harry Lennix as Martian Manhunter, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, and Diane Lane as Martha Kent. According to earlier rumours, the film would have been produced by Charles Roven, and Warner Bros. was looking for writers, with Christopher McQuarrie of Mission: Impossible being the top choice after working with Cavill on Fallout.
However, the actors and characters listed below are also involved based on the most recent DCEU films (inclduing Zack Snyder’s Justice League):

• Amy Adams as Lois Lane
• Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor
• Harry Lennix as Martian Manhunter
• Diane Lane as Martha Kent
• Laurence Fishburne as Perry White

Do We Know Anything About Man of Steel 2’s Plot?

Man of Steel 2 currently does not have an established plot. Cavill commented in a 2017 interview with Collider: “I thought Man of Steel was a wonderful beginning story, an origin story to Superman. He had a lot of potential to expand from there and develop into the hero that we know and love. It was a Batman viewpoint story, so it didn’t really portray the qualities of Superman that I was eager to highlight in Batman v Superman, which took a hard turn in a darker direction. That was clearly emphasised further in the Justice League Snyder Cut. After the tragic events of the previous movie, if Man of Steel 2 ever happened, It will be a relatively straightforward Superman film and would undoubtedly focus on Superman’s kinder, more sympathetic side.
