[[wysiwyg_imageupload:8921:]]Back in June, Cosmic Book News first told you that Zack Snyder was considering Mark Strong for the role of Lex Luthor in the Man of Steel sequel.
Now we hear from the actor who hints at the possibility.
Asked by Digital Spy about playing Lex Luthor in the Superman/Batman Man of Steel 2 movie, Mark Strong replied, “All I can say is… watch this space.”
Our DC Entertainment Source also told us the rumor about Bryan Cranston being up for Lex Luthor doesn’t look to be true as Lex is going to be a charming businessman, and Zack Snyder wants Strong for the role.
Our source said Zack Snyder envisioned Henry Cavill as Superman, and this looks to be a similar situation.
We are also told David Goyer is currently writing up a rough first draft of the script with the movie set a year after Man of Steel.
Regarding Batman in the movie being an older character, we are told that isn’t the case; that any casting rumors about actors nearing 50 are “definitely false.”
Our DC Entertainment source said it’s more than likely Batman will be in his 30s.
We are also told by a second source that the casting rumors of an older Batman are just that.
Some other information our DC Entertainment source has managed to dig up includes mention that both Metropolis and Gotham City will be featured in the movie as well as it looking like Alfred and Gordon will be supporting characters.
Previous to Comic-Con there was a rumor of a Flash movie being announced, with our source telling us Berlanti, Guggenheim and Green turned in a treatment in 2011 for a film, with the studio happy with the potential it posed. Cosmic Book News is also told The Flash movie could be based on that version with Geoff Johns on Creative Consultant duty on the script.
Superman/Batman, the sequel to Man of Steel, goes into production next year for a 2015 release starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.
For more news on the Man of Steel and related movies head on over to the Cosmic Book News Superman movie hub.
[[wysiwyg_imageupload:8921:]]With Man of Steel tipping the scales domestically at over $200 million it seems a sequel is more than likely, with lots of talk surrounding that.
Both director Zack Snyder and Henry Cavill have stated they want more Superman before the Justice League movie, as well as mention of Big Blue taking the lead in the JL film as well.
There has also been a rather large development at Warner Bros. in regards to WB Movie president Jeff Robinov apparently leaving; just how that affects the DC movies remains to be seen.
Chatting with our DC Entertainment source, we were told the following.
Robinov was a big DC supporter; depends what the new guy at the top thinks, but the source is pretty sure all of WB will get behind the DCCU after Man of Steel.
We were told a tidbit regarding General Swanwick in the Man of Steel as the character was originally General Lane, and that is how Lois got access to Superman when he surrendered. They changed it around and replaced General Lane with General Swanwick played by Harry Lennix.
The source says it’s been said that filming for the Man of Steel sequel will be begin next year, and Mark Strong is wanted for Lex Luthor by Zack Snyder. Expect pre-production to start coming together by October-December.
David Goyer is hard at work on a first draft of the screenplay for Man of Steel 2. The source says Chris Nolan is sort of overseeing the script/story, but may not have as much input as before as he is focusing on his new film project, Interstellar.
The source noted he would personally like Jonathan Nolan to help Goyer with the screenplay.
Also, David Goyer has a short treatment for Justice League, but there is no story or script so far.
Our DC Entertainment source previously provided us information on the Man of Steel including the bus crash scene that was featured in the movie and more.
[[wysiwyg_imageupload:5783:]]Will there be a “Green Lantern 2?”
Sinestro Mark Strong isn’t so sure.
By all accounts, we will find out the fate of the DC movie universe this June with Zack Snyder and Henry Cavill’s new Superman movie, Man of Steel.
It’s been stated that the Justice League movie depends on the success of the Man of Steel; of course, which would mean the fate of DC’s other movie characters (except Batman most likely) would be dependent on the new Superman as well.
Warner Bros. previous attempts at a successful comic book movie franchise outside The Dark Knight Trilogy failed with Superman Returns and the Green Lantern movie.
Speaking of the latter, while it really didn’t bomb per se at the box office, Green Lantern just wasn’t a hit amongst most fans and critics. Green Lantern actually came out in the black, albeit only around $20 million.
Speaking with MTV, Mark Strong let it be known that the post-credit scene which featured Sinestro donning the yellow ring was intended more as a set up for what’s to come in “Green Lantern 2” and the trilogy, and not directly related to anything in the movie.
“A lot of people seemed to be confused by him putting on the ring at the end of the movie,” Strong said about Sinestro. “They felt that it came out of nowhere. All it was, during the credits, there was a sequence which was a nod to where the trilogy was intending to head to. It wasn’t ever meant to be part of the story of the first film.”
Regarding the status of “Green Lantern 2” and the trilogy, Mark Strong doesn’t offer any hope in that he hasn’t heard anything in quite a while, but does state that it would have been fun, which suggests the actor would return.
“I would be surprised if they made a second one because I’ve heard nothing about it in quite a while now,” Strong explains to MTV. “What that standalone moment was intended to relate to was where the movies were headed and that, for me, would have been very exciting because the putting on of the ring and the whole suit turning yellow would have been great fun.”
Regarding what is known about “Green Lantern 2,” recently a batch of storyboards surfaced that revealed a Green Lantern Corps space battle, which may have been a part of the first or further into the trilogy.
While we wait for June to get here, should Ryan Reynolds be given a second shot at Green Lantern or should Warner Bros. give it a reboot?
