Warner Bros. Puts 'Man of Steel' Sequel Into Active Development (Exclusive) https://t.co/eOyAPAtXso pic.twitter.com/GNANVYTxpB— TheWrap (@TheWrap) August 8, 2016
"(..) a person close to the project told The Wrap that Superman is a top priority for the studio and getting the character right for audiences is of tantamount importance (..)
The “Man of Steel” sequel is a long way from getting a release date. ‘”Wonder Woman” is slated for June 2, 2017, followed by “Justice League” on Nov. 17, 2017. “Aquaman” is currently slated for July 27, 2018. A standalone “Batman” film does not yet have a date, but will likely come before the Superman sequel, the person familiar with the project said.
Warner Bros. has two untitled DC films to be released on Oct. 5, 2018 and Nov. 1, 2019, but hasn’t said what they will be."
More to come.. (if we can stop our tears of joy for a minute).
