[adsense]DC Comics revealed more big news about upcoming film Man of Steel 2. Producers leaked today that the titular character Man of Steel, known more commonly as Superman, is slated to make a cameo appearance in the film.
Zack Snyder revealed Henry Cavill will return to the silver screen and reprise his role as Kal-El of Krypton. “Cavill has the chops to play a very strong, powerful Superman, and that is exactly the type of Superman we need for Batman to have his big movie moment by beating the ever loving sh*t out of Superman for all the world to see!”
One writer speaking on the condition of anonymity reports Man of Steel 2 borrows heavily from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. In the source material, a seasoned and weary Bruce Wayne suits up one final time just so he can beat Superman to a pulp, with his bared hands.
“Frank Miller’s leadership and vision are perfect for this film, because he really hates Superman and all the character stands for. Fans are going to get to see this play out on screen, which will put even more focus on Batman and other characters we’re squeezing into this film,” Snyder reports.
Man of Steel 2 is slated to be released in the summer of 2016. To date the following main characters have been confirmed for the movie:
Batman (Ben Affleck)
Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot)
The Cyborg (Ray Fisher)
Alfred, The Butler (Jeremy Irons)
Superman/Clark Kent (Henry Cavill)
