The manager for “Man of Steel” star Henry Cavill says a new standalone sequel to the Superman film is in the works.
Cavill reprised his role as Superman earlier this year in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and is currently filming a Justice League film alongside Ben Affleck’s Batman, which is due out next year. Warner Bros., the studio behind DC Comics’ foray into film, hasn’t been shy about the character’s ongoing involvement, despite the fact that he appeared to have died at the end of the most recent film.
Cavill’s manager Dany Garcia tells Newsweek that Cavill is “beginning to expand” the Superman world and is in development for the standalone sequel.
Both “Man of Steel” and “Batman v Superman” received tepid reviews from critics but were big successes at the box office.
