In even further MAN OF STEEL-related news, writer David Goyer sat down to speak to the guys at BleedingCool about whether MAN OF STEEL’s Superman shares a universe with other heroes.
Goyer said, “It is our intention that, in success, this would be the zero issue and, from this point onward, possible films could expand into a shared universe. In our world, the MAN OF STEEL world, Zack has gone on record saying that we’re implying there are other superheroes in this world. But I don’t know that they’ve come forward yet. The idea is that Superman is the first one. There might be people helping people, but not in costumes, and that Superman comes forward and announces himself to the world. In him announcing himself, he’s the one that changes things.”
Asked whether the plan all along was for MAN OF STEEL to sow potential seeds for a JL film, Goyer said, “Yes, yes absolutely, in our mind.”
The writer was then asked about whether the plan is that Superman inspires all of these apparent heroes-in-waiting, such as Bruce Wayne, to which he responded, “Well, yes… there’s definitely… I don’t want to get too in-depth. Obviously, Zack and I have had conversations… but there would be a cause and effect. And that would extend to the collateral damage that happened, and to what other countries feel about the fact Superman calls America home. MAN OF STEEL doesn’t exist in a vacuum.”
MAN OF STEEL is officially released on Friday, with a Starburst review due shortly. Zack Snyder’s apparent plan is to then move forward with a MAN OF STEEL sequel before tackling JUSTICE LEAGUE.
