Man Of Steel 2 Directors and Henry Cavill Quits Wichter

Riding off the back of Black Adam even Rising higher in interest is Henry Cavill as Superman it looks like we’re getting closer to the reveal of the early developments of the Man of Steel sequel [Music]

So people who went to watch the Black Adam movie or even looked at the leaked end credit scene of Harry Cavill showing up as Superman was quite taken aback that he is definitely back.

Harry Cavill is Back As Superman In Man OF Steel 2

Because that served as a little announcement of his return Henry Cavill did say that he chose the Man of Steel suit but apparently he also chose the theme, as well as you, know in the end credits scene you do hear the iconic.

John Williams score Henry Cavill had to say this to Cinema Blend John Williams theme song is obviously incredibly important to the character it’s something which resonates with the character and everything time I think anyone in the world hears that I think in large portion of the world who hears that will recognize it immediately as Superman and feel a certain way about it I do think it’s wonderful

But the same breath he also mentioned the Hans Zimmer score but at the same time equally so I think Hans Zimmer’s Man of Steel score was just as wonderful I have incredible powerful feelings about that because I remember watching the trailer the first teasers comes out and I was sitting there with my friend and we were both so excited about it and the way the score plays both are incredibly powerful in their own way and both are just as iconic for the character it was such a pleasure to be back in the suit whether it be John Williams or whether it be Hans Zimmer they’re both extraordinary extraordinary artists

So in my mind, I just felt like he wanted to show the Man of Steel suit but with the John Williams score saying that he is the Superman in this generation in a way that General audiences recognize the symbol and recognize the song.

But I do think that when the time comes and the Superman sequel does come out I believe he won’t just be the John Williams score I’m pretty sure that it’ll probably be more of the Man of Steel score or maybe even something new who knows.

But it looks like Henry Cavill’s focus is really on Superman as he went on Live with Kelly and Ryan to talk about how much Superman means to him.

“I definitely feel a kinship towards Superman I’ve lived in his shoes for a lot longer than sure and it’s been a formative part of my life and career so I feel a closeness to him I also feel a closeness to Sherlock but not to the same degree”

Cavill Said

Now with that respect, it does feel like he’s freeing up his schedule to become Superman.

Henry Cavill Quits Witcher For Superman Sequel

As it was breaking news that Liam Hemsworth is replacing Henry Cavill for The Witcher season four because originally The Witcher was supposed to shoot back-to-back seasons three and season four but looks like Henry Cavill is giving up season four.

Some news to share from the continent…..

My journey as Geralt of Rivia has been filled with both monsters and Adventures alas I will be laying down my Medallion and my swords for season four in my stead The Fantastic Mr. Liam Hemsworth will be taking up the mantle of the white wolf as with the greatest of literary characters I passed the torch with reverence for the time spent embodying Gerald and enthusiasm to see Liam’s take on this Most Fascinating and nuanced of men.

Liam goods this character is such a wonderful depth to him enjoy diving in and seeing what you can find.

Henry Cavill

And so a lot of people are saying this is because he wants to go all in on Superman and it could be that Warner Brothers Discovery tossed a lot of coin to Henry Cavill.

Because they want to Fast Track that Superman movie and as you know James God who is going to be the co-head of DC Studios for the creative side has already name-dropped Superman first meaning that it will be DC Studios’ goal to get Superman first.

Who Will Be Director Of Man Of Steel 2

A recent conversation online talked about a few directors and some scoopers even said they already know who’s going to direct Man of Steel 2.

The first director that comes to mind would definitely be Zack Snyder himself Zack’s matter was the one that brought Henry Cavill in for Man of Steel Batman v Superman and Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

There was that pulse where he did say that Henry Cavill’s Superman is the past and present and future Superman.

Could be He will return to direct the sequel to Man of Steel with Henry Cavill if that were the case he sort of has a Man of Steel too in mind previously he had said.

We talked about a brainiac movie but I still think that the kryptonians are in The Phantom Zone are probably still around and there was always a possibility for their return for Aura and whoever’s left that was the thing that was always out there we talked about as is a possible sequel I just think it’s best to give Superman these extraterrestrial challenges because I think you’ve got to be careful with other than Lex Luthor because of course you have to continue with Lex because Lex is his real Nemesis but I think you really have to look outside of the Earth for challenges for him because of how powerful he is


This definitely could be a way to take the Man of Steel sequel has Superman not only fight Brainiac but also the rest of the Kryptonians that were stuck in The Phantom Zone.

Christopher McQueary the Director Of the Superman Sequel

But a few years ago it was also revealed that Christopher for McQueary was actually looking into a Superman sequel as well as he did work with Henry Cavill in the mission impossible and they also talked a lot about what that Superman sequel could be.

It may be in the near future they could come and revisit him again as apparently according to the Hollywood Reporter he is on top of their wish list so there could be a Christopher McQuary-directed Superman in the future.

Is James Will Be The Director Of Superman Sequal?

Now recently we know that James GUNN is going to be the co-head of DC Studios but he has also revealed that he’s not just going to be the head of DC Studios.

He will also get to direct some movies in one of those movies, Superman, in the past when someone asked him if he would direct the Superman Batman or Wonder Woman movie.

He said I would and have chosen to do none of them I’m much more drawn to taking less popular characters and telling their stories although that tweet has already been deleted.

So they may have changed his mind and it does seem like James Gunn realizes that not all the characters should be like Peacemaker or The Suicide Squad in fact he was heavily involved in the movie bright burn which is very much a rated-R horror movie that’s kind of like a serious parody to Man of Steel.

But seeing that James Gunn and Zack Snyder are long time Friends James Gunn wants to let you know that he has the utmost respect for Zack Snyder

So the next Superman would be directed by James Gunn I’m kind of sure that he may even bring in Zack Snyder to help him out.

Another Name For the Director Of Man Of Steel 2 (Davis Yates)

But another scooper by the name of look upon the Stars actually threw in another name with this coded tweet of a bird a plane Superman and a gif is of the Fantastic Beast which was directed by David Yates.

David Yates is mostly known for Harry Potter Order of the Phoenix and the Harry Potter Deathly Hallows part 1 and part 2 but he’s also very much known for the new Fantastic Beasts Trilogy and even though that rumor is going around right now it just seems like a pretty safe bet for something that Warner Brothers Discovery would do get a director that’s already at Warner Brothers and has already been making films for Warner Brothers meaning is he actually Gonna Leave The Wizarding World and now jumping into the world of superheroes of Superman that could quite be a possibility as well.


But whoever jumps in to be the director of Superman it does clearly show that Henry Cavill will have a say in the character and the story from here on forward.

Well, what do you think about Henry Cavill going from The Witcher to possibly more Superman and the rumored directors that are being talked about right now, or who do you think is best fit to direct Superman share your thoughts in the comments down below.
