While promoting the post-apocalyptic movie The Colony, Laurence Fishburne, who plays Perry White in Man of Steel, was asked by Canoe.ca if he had signed on for a Man of Steel sequel yet. Fishburne said, "No, not yet, not yet, not yet. I mean, we have to see how the film’s gonna do, right?"
Fishburne also added, "It’s a much bigger canvas than that. My particular colour on the canvas is minimal. It’s really an origin story, Man of Steel … the focus is his origins."
Man of Steel is scheduled to be released in movie theaters in the United States on June 14, 2013.
