There’s been plenty of talk where the DC Expanded Universe in concerned, especially when we’ll actually see ‘Man of Steel 2′ come to fruition.
Warner Bros. and DC may be struggling to secure positive reviews for their movies (notably recent release ‘Suicide Squad’), but it hasn’t deterred them from starting work on a ‘Man of Steel’ sequel. 2013 saw Henry Cavill don the red and blue suit for the first time but any news on a follow-up has been pretty quiet until now. Instead, the focus was on ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’, which was a long and gruelling process alongside new Batman Ben Affleck.
Between 1987 and 1992, Kevin Costner had a quite staggering run. From the brilliant Al Capone movie ‘The Untouchables’ and vastly underrated thriller ‘No Way Out’, he starred in one quality hit after another, including ‘Field of Dreams’, ‘Bull Durham’, ‘Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves’ and ‘JFK’. In 1992, he appeared opposite Whitney Houston in ‘The Bodyguard’, the soundtrack to which remains the best-selling of all time, having shifted more than 47 million copies.
One of the main grievances that audiences had with ‘Man Of Steel’ was the amount of destruction and death that took place in its final act when Superman and General Zod turned Metropolis into their own personal wrestling ring. ‘Man Of Steel’ director Zack Snyder has heard those complaints, and believes that they are unfounded. Especially when it’s compared to the amount of people that perished in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’.
On 'Late Night with Seth Meyers,' Superman Henry Cavill dropped by and shared an embarrassing story of when he was left exposed in a hotel hallway in desperate need of a pair of shorts and a bathroom.
A lot of people are very, very excited about ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice’. Speaking to Cineplex, the English actor remarked, “The reception of my first Superman movie, from what I’ve read, was fairly mixed. Cavill added, “There’s no intentional move, I don’t think, in ‘Batman v Superman’ to address any issues that people had with ‘Man Of Steel’.
Writing for Games Rader, Millar made sure to admit that he both adores everyone who was involved in ‘Man Of Steel’ and recognises that the death of Michael Shannon’s General Zod does work within the context of the movie.
