There’s been a lot of talk about a potential Justice League movie, and how its status will depend largely on the performance of Man of Steel at the box office. However, it seems that not only is a Justice League movie already in the works, Warner Bros has actually greenlighted a sequel to Man of Steel, one that will feature the return of Zack Snyder and David S Goyer.
The news means that Warner has been convinced of Goyer and Snyder’s ability to the point that they no longer needed to wait for Man of Steel’s box office numbers:
“Do the DC characters exist in the universe I created?” asks Snyder, in an interview with Hero Complex. “The answer is yes. In my mind, we have this fantastic character of Superman. It’s not madness that there would be others.”
“Now, that being said, does a Justice League movie exist now? No. Whether or not I ever get to make that movie, I don’t know… What is real is that there’s a crack — a foot — in the door. That’s promising. The door is definitely open.”
