Though I personally liked Man of Steel, it's no mystery that the movie (like a lot of other DCEU movies) have divided the audience in two. Rumor has it that Man of Steel 2 has been secretly in the works, and the movie will see the introductions of classic villain Brainiac as well as Supergirl.

An anonymous user posted this on 4chan:


"The sequel to Man of Steel has been developing in secret. Geoff Johns and Zack Snyder finished writing a story for the film back in November. Multiple writers were approached to turn into a screenplay including the writers from Watchmen and the 300 movie series. Brainiac will be the villain and Supergirl will be introduced to the DCEU."

I know the source is already questionable, but you have to admit that the story isn't entirely farfetched. There have already been rumors going around of George Miller (Mad Max) working on and dropping a Man of Steel project, and it had been teased in the first movie that there were other Kryptonians in the ship that were kept in Cryo-tubes.

I'm guessing either Supergirl will be one of the people on the tubes that is revived, or she'll have some mixed origin with Superboy and be a clone created by LexCorp.

Either way, I'm all up for another Man of Steel movie. Though I really like Henry Cavill's portrayal of Superman, I think we've still yet to see him in a Superman movie that has really soared. We're holding out on you, Cavill!

Cavill returns as Superman in Justice League which comes out Nov. 17.
