After the recent appearance of Henry Cavill in Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam, fans have been excited to see Cavill donning his red cape again for a sequel to 2013’s Man of Steel. The actor, too, has taken the opportunity to announce his return as mankind’s protector, Superman.

The fan’s excitement over Cavill’s impending return can be witnessed by the fact that the post received more than one million likes in the span of one hour.

Is Steven Spielberg directing Man Of Steel 2?

As established by the Heat Vision newsletter, the legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg was seen meeting Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav over lunch which in no time turned to include Christopher Nolan as well as the co-CEO of DC Studio’s Peter Safran. While nothing official has come out of what could’ve been a friendly lunch, enthusiastic fans over the internet have taken the liberty to assume the discussion about Spielberg helming Man of Steel 2 could be a subject of their conversations.

As a matter of fact, it would not be the first time that this legendary director has been tied to rumors related to superhero media. Marvel Studios was reported to approach Spielberg to shepherd their upcoming Fantastic Four film, but to their dismay, he refused when contacted.

As history states, the Jurassic Park director almost directed the 1978 Superman movie after his movie Jaws was in production. His growing reputation was found impressive by the producer of the Superman film series who contacted him but to no avail, as the director turned down the job because his representation and the studio couldn’t settle on an agreeable salary.

The fans have taken it to be their responsibility to hype the slight possibility of Steven Spielberg helming Man of Steel 2. The consensus among them readily welcomes the Oscar-winning filmmaker to be a part of the movie.


All in all, it would be really impressive to have Spielberg direct Man of Steel 2 with his breathtaking set of skills, resulting in a movie that could dominate the newly-minted DCU by a large margin.

Black Adam is now playing in theaters.
