'Man Of Steel' Soars To The Top Of The Box Office Worldwide

Man of Steel is officially a hit around the world. Final numbers are not in, but you can read the breakdown so far at The Hollywood Reporter.  The Wrap got reaction from several sources, including Warner Brothers:

“We already know a Superman sequel is in the works, but what fans truly crave is a Justice League of America movie,” Exhibitor Relations vice president and senior analyst Jeff Bock told TheWrap. “Well, thanks to Superman successfully rebooting, it's much closer to a reality now than ever before. Watch out, Avengers, the battle for spandex domination has just begun!”

The studio wasn’t talking specifics Sunday, but the potential was clear.

“The DC Comics brand is just great, and we have some options now,” Warner Bros.' head of distribution Dan Fellman told TheWrap Sunday. "We'll see how we can build on this, but we're in a good spot."

Warner Bros. stacked the deck for “Man of Steel.” It tapped "Dark Knight" director Christopher Nolan to produce the film and "300" director Zack Snyder to handle the behind-the-camera work. It also assembled an impressive cast, with "The Tudors'" Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Russell Crowe as Superman's biological father and Michael Shannon as the illainous General Zod.
