David Goyer Hints Man of Steel Leads To DC Shared Movie Universe


[[wysiwyg_imageupload:6808:]]We’ve all heard that the fate of the Justice League movie rests on the success of the Man of Steel, but with the recent news about the Charlie Hunnam Flash concept art, it sees more than likely that Warner Bros. is moving forward with a DC shared universe.

Cosmic Book News first told you way back last June about the Man of Steel spearheading a DC shared movie universe, and now we hear from writer David Goyer who hints that we’ll be getting just that with the new Superman movie.

“I would love to tell you yes or no, but I think it’s going to be more exciting for people to keep a beady eye out and find what they can find.” he told Entertainment Weekly.

Likewise, we hear from producer Charles Roven, who also worked on The Dark Knight Trilogy, that the Man of Steel is the first step toward something bigger.

“It’s setting the tone for what the movies are going to be like going forward. In that, Man of Steel is definitely a first step. Nolan’s Dark Knight series was deliberately and smartly positioned as a stand-alone. The world the films lived in was very isolated, without any knowledge of other superheroes. What Zack and Chris have done with this film is allow you to really introduce other characters into the same world,” Roven said.

Man of Steel opens June 14th in IMAX 3D directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman and Michael Shannon as Zod.
