Superman may get a little furious for his next solo film.
That’s because Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller is rumored to helm Man of Steel 2. The rumor comes from another Superman director, of sorts– Jon Schnepp, who just released the documentary The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? Appearing on the latest episode of PopCorn Talk, Schnepp said, with confidence, that Mad Max’s Miller would direct Superman’s next sequel.
Schnepp didn’t say where he heard the rumor, or add any more to that nugget of information, but it’s an interesting theory nonetheless. Miller is clearly in Warner Bros. good graces with the critical and commercial success of Mad Max: Fury Road, and Man of Steel director Zack Snyder will likely be too busy shepperding the Justice League film franchise to return to Superman. Plus, there’s the tiny detail that Miller was supposed to direct DC’s first attempt at a Justice League movie back in 2008. Perhaps a Man of Steel sequel is Warner Bros.’ recompense to Miller?
You can watch Schnepp briefly discuss Miller’s involvement below.
