Man Of Steel Sequel Rumors: Director, Release Date, & Villain

Rumors have been swirling that George Miller, 70, will direct the Man of Steel sequel for Warner Bros., but El Mayimbe of Heroic Hollywood has chimed in by saying that the Mad Max: Fury Road director hasn't yet decided what his next project will be. Though, it is supposedly his for the taking if he wants it.

Besides the Man of Steel sequel, Miller has reportedly been offered Dark Universe (also known as Justice League Dark), too. The team-up film will feature DC Comics' supernatural heroes Constantine, Swamp Thing, Zatanna, and Deadman. It was being developed by Guillermo del Toro, but he departed the project to begin work on Pacific Rim 2.

When might we see the next Superman (Henry Cavill) solo film? El Mayimbe says it is looking like it will either get a 2019 or 2020 release. And when it happens, who will he battle? Brainiac! It would mark the supervillain's cinematic debut, though, he was supposed to appear in Tim Burton's defunct Superman Lives.

The super-intelligent alien from Colu, created by Otto Binder and Al Plastino, believes knowledge is power and will stop at nothing to obtain it. He is known as the "Collector of Worlds" as he seeks out new civilizations, shrinks down city-sized samples and bottles them. Once he has extract all of the knowledge and technology from the new world he destroys their world.

In Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice opens March 25, 2016.
