MAN OF STEEL 2 in 2014 and JUSTICE LEAGUE Aiming for a 2015 Release?

The highly anticipated "Man of Steel" opened in AMC Theatres everywhere this past weekend. The Zack Snyder-helmed production grossed an impressive $200 million worldwide. This number apparently pleased Warner Bros. so much, that a "Man of Steel 2" is being fast-tracked to release in 2014.

That seems like quite an ambitious goal, being that pre-production and principal of photography on the first film took a combined total of nearly three years. It definitely makes sense for WB to capitalize on the momentum, but hopefully substance is not lost in result.

This was not the only D.C. news to surface with the impressive box office numbers. The hot and cold concept of "Justice League" has been a hard one to follow, and it was believed that it would only really have a shot of coming to fruition if "Man of Steel" performed well. With the success of its release, it's being reported that we may actually see a "Justice League" film in 2015.

On the landscape for the "JL" film, Warner Bros. President of domestic distribution said the following, "It’s more than just a franchise for us, it really opens up the door to do combinations of the DC Comics characters. We can build them up like Marvel did and benefit from the history of DC."

It would be a dream come true for D.C. fans to see Wonder Woman, The Flash, Batman and so on, sharing the same-screen, just as Marvel has so successfully done. But I think we all rather them take their time to perfect the Universe and get it right, than rush it.

What do you make of this D.C. news? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
