man of steel shieldLet’s top of a Man Of Steel Monday hat-trick, shall we? We already covered why there’s no post-credits scene and the full soundtrack being online, and now the biggest news of all hits:

In a development that will surprise no one, Deadline is reporting that Man Of Steel 2 has been official fast-tracked with David S. Goyer writing and Zach Snyder directing again. This would put the sequel in front of cameras as early as January on a script that Goyer has likely already been working on for some time.

WB has not officially confirmed the news, but this is extremely believable news. Interestingly it comes with word that David S. Goyer is also officially signed to specifically write this sequel and then a Justice League film, which is news to me. Perhaps it’s been reported that Goyer was picking up the apparently shitty pieces left behind by Will Beall, but I haven’t noticed.

Reviews hit the web in a few hours with many hundreds of millions hitting the WB coffers within a few weeks without a doubt.

The slightly sadder news is that Christopher Nolan will be a much more in-name-only producer this time around, what with him being off in space and all.
