RUMOR: George Miller to Direct "Man of Steel" Sequel [UPDATED]

UPDATE 8/21/2015 11:20 AM PT: Warner Bros. declined comment on this story when reached by CBR News, though an industry insider has shared information with CBR that casts doubt on the rumor.

During a video interview with Popcorn Talk Network, "Death of Superman Lives" director Jon Schnepp said that he knew who would direct the "Man of Steel" sequel: "Mad Max: Fury Road's" George Miller.

At the 55:22 mark in the video, the host prompts Schnepp, revealing that Schnepp had some idea who would helm the direct "Man of Steel" sequel. "Yeah, George Miller," Schnepp responded immediately. "He's doing 'Man of Steel 2.'"

"I don't feel weird about breaking it," he continued. "Obviously, ['Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' director] Zack Snyder is doing 'Justice League' one and two. We've already got James Wan doing 'Aquaman'... I think Miller is a perfect choice to do 'Man of Steel 2.' He's going to bring so much to it."
