No, in fact, Man of Steel is more of a prequel to Justice League, as five or six films will help set up and tell the story of this epic DC Comics ensemble. He helps explain the way the series is going to work from here on out.
"They're obviously beginning something, and there's a stretch of these flicks, and so this is the beginning of the Justice League, as we all suspected as they were announcing that cast. We were like, 'This is the beginning of a Justice League movie.' From what I understand now, it's no longer like, 'This is Superman 2.' They're not doing these things. They're doing like, 'Here's Man of Steel. Here's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.' The next one is not like a sequel to one of the characters. They're just going to keep building their universe for about five or six movies. But all of them...it's supposed to tell one massive story, which is all Justice League oriented".
He then goes onto share his own thoughts on the title, which he doesn't necessarily like, but stands behind none the less.
" It's a bit of a mouthful. And also, I don't know why Batman v Superman. Why not just throw the "s" in there? Or spell it or something like that. Or honestly, every comic book fan on the planet, who is a DC comic book fan, I think we all wanted to see Batman/Superman: World's Finest."
Does a six film series that tells the story of Justice League excite you? Or did you want a straight up sequel to Man of Steel? Will we even get a sequel to Man of Steel?
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice comes to theaters May 6th, 2016 and stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons. The film is directed by Zack Snyder.
