Nearly two months after the first concrete indication that a sequel to "Man of Steel" is indeed in development, one of the film's stars has confirmed work has begun on the screenplay.
“I read about 'Man of Steel 2' when you guys did," Amy Adams told Hey U Guys while promoting "Arrival." "A lot of times I find out after the fact, which is fine, it’s completely normal, it’s not indicative of anything. But yeah, I know they’re working on a script and I know it’s in the works.”
Rumors have swirled for some time about the follow-up to Zack Snyder's divisive 2013 film, with many initially believing it had simply morphed into "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." Last year "Mad Max: Fury Road" director George Miller sort of shot down reports that he was helming the sequel, calling them "probably not true."
But then in August, another report emerged that Warner Bros. had put "Man of Steel 2" into active development, an assertion confirmed mere weeks later by Henry Cavill's agent Dany Garcia. Warner Bros. has staked out release dates in 2018, 2019 and 2020 for undisclosed "event" films, any one of which could belong to the sequel.
Adams, who reprised her role as Lois Lane in "Batman v Superman," will appear alongside Cavill next year in "Justice League." They're joined by Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Amber Heard as Mera and Ciaran Hinds as Steppenwolf. The film opens Nov. 17, 2017.
