Snyder and Goyer Returning for MAN OF STEEL Sequel

Yes, Zack Snyder's Superman film Man of Steel doesn't come out until Friday and plans are already underway for the sequel.

Deadline announced yesterday that the highly-anticipated movie has so much positive buzz that Warner Bros. Pictures is fast-tracking a sequel with the same central creative team.  Snyder will return as director with David S. Goyer once again providing the script.

Goyer apparently signed a three-picture deal at Warner Bros. for Man of Steel, the Man of Steel sequel and the Justice League movie adaptation, which seems more likely than ever to include Henry Cavill as Superman.  "How Hollywood works with these kind of things," said Cavill in a recent interview to the Huffington Post, "is that when you are doing a screen test, you will sign a contract saying, 'Okay, yes, I'll do the movie if you guys want me.'  And in that, it's standard procedure to do two options beyond the movie."

It seems Justice League will probably be held off until after Man of Steel 2.  "I feel like you need to get Superman a little further down the road before you can do a Justice League movie," said Snyder in a Collider interview.

It's not known if Christopher Nolan will return as producer, but Deadline claims that "next time Nolan's producer role won't be as 'full-blown.'"
