IGN recently interviewed Zack Snyder and Henry Cavill during the press junket for Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” where the director and actor were asked about the possibility of a standalone “Man of Steel” sequel. “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” is technically not a full-blooded Superman sequel with the inclusion of Batman and Wonder Woman along with members of the Justice League making brief appearances in the film. On the chances for a possible “Man of Steel” sequel, Snyder said, “I think if we can get a good script, it would be great to get a standalone Superman movie. I think that would be fun to do…Part of the reason we didn’t announce a standalone superhero movie is to support some of the event of [Batman v Superman].”

Actor Henry Cavill gave his own opinion saying, “I do believe it depends on the success of this movie. If this goes well then we can start to negotiate with Warner Bros. for a standalone Superman movie. But they’ve got their plans set out for other stuff and Justice Leagues and various other movies, so it’s about finding the time, really. It’s something that I would be very keen to do.” Producer Charles Roven stated that ‘discussions’ are ongoing for a “Man of Steel” sequel saying, “We’re in the process of looking at that, but we don’t have it on the schedule at the moment because we’re quite busy with the movies that we have scheduled.”
