Although it doesn't seem possible, sources close to WB Studios are claiming Man of Steel 2 will be released in 2014. Warner Bros green lighting a sequel isn't that shocking as the movie has made over $120 million opening weekend, but assuming the movie will come out some time next year seems absurd! Director Zack Snyder and writer/producer David S. Goyer have both been confirmed for the sequel, with shooting set to begin January of 2014.
WOW. This is starting to seem rushed, isn't it? Unless WB has been sitting on a completed script or secretly started production just as they'd done previously with Harry Potter, rushing Man of Steel 2 into production will not produce as great of a film as one that has the full 2+ years to be completed.
Warner Brother's decision to move up Man of Steel to 2014 places an even bigger question on the reality of a Justice League of America movie that would compete with Marvel’s The Avengers. The source close to the studio claims that Man of Steel 2's release date has been fast-tracked to keep JLA on track for a 2015 release. This would place JLA directly against Avengers 2.
But would Warner Bros be ready to release a Justice League of America movie? If I'm not mistaken, the only movie that is currently cannon for JLA is Man of Steel. Is JLA going to be just Cavil’s Superman against the world?
Who is the Batman? Joseph Gordon-Levitt?! Or is his Robin going to make an appearance in JLA? And how about Catwoman? I can't be the only fan that is dying to see Anne Hathaway get her own movie! And no Justice League movie can be complete without Wonder Woman!
If Warner Brothers wants to directly compete with Marvel they'd push Justice League of America back to 2017 and announce two or three untitled DC Superhero movies for 2015-2016. This allows Warner the ability introduce crucial members of the team before JLA. Marvel didn't attempt to push out Avengers two years after making its extremely successful Iron Man in 2007 that directly set-up the eventual team-up movie. They waited five years and made an additional three movies that introduced characters who would be center stage in Avengers.
Would a movie essentially rushed into production be as well received as Man of Steel?
