Over 40 New 'Man Of Steel' Images; Zack Snyder Suggests A Superman Sequel Must Arrive Before 'Justice League' Can Happen

Man of Steel, press conf

"I get my evil from Satan. I drink it. It hurts. But then I take some Pepto and the pain goes away," Michael Shannon joked yesterday in typically mischievous fashion regarding his villain character Zod at the "Man Of Steel" press conference in Los Angeles. Yep, Zack Snyder's Superman movie is only 14 days away, press in L.A. have seen it (including us) and reviews should be hitting closer to release. More from the press conference soon, but more immediately, Warner Bros. has released 47 "new" images from the movie, some of them that you've already seen in lo-rez fashion and some that you haven't seen before, period (about 15 of them are here, another 20 here).

But the pressing matter everyone wants to find the answer to right now: What's next, a sequel or a "Justice League" movie? Crave Online spoke to Henry Cavill after the press conference and while he's game, he doesn't seem to know what's going on. "Of course I’m open to it, very much open to it, but I have no idea what plans are for that," Cavill said. "I’m not privy to that kind of information. I think it would be a lot of fun to explore the character further and a continuing journey, but I know nothing about those plans so far."

Cavill admits that he, Snyder and others have spoken about it, but not in an official capacity at all. "Everyone’s talking about if Justice League will happen. None of it has ever been official speak. It’s always been 'what if,' and if we were to do, 'how would we do it?' It’s always just been brainstorming and fun ideas as opposed to genuine thoughts."

Meanwhile, Collider sat down with Snyder yesterday and when asked about a Justice League movie, the "Watchmen" filmmaker suggested a "Man Of Steel" sequel may need to happen first to further establish the hero before he joins a group. Asked what he would do if he were offered the "Justice League" movie (rumored for 2015, but that this point probably delayed), Snyder said, "I feel like you need to get Superman a little further down the road before you can do a Justice League movie." Does that mean sequel first? Snyder essentially repeated himself. "I don’t know. All I’m saying is that you’ve got to get Superman further down the road." OK then. Well, you can't get further down the road without another movie without another movie. Then again, Snyder's ideas aren't necessarily those of Warner Bros., who would probably like nothing more than to have Christopher Nolan devise and direct their "Justice League" movie, but he doesn't seem to be interested. The rumor earlier this year was that Will Beall's "Justice League" script was discarded by WB and if that's the case (note, no one's debunked the rumor yet) they're probably starting from scratch and 2015 may be tough to hit if they don't have a real plan in place. 

But there is something in "Man Of Steel" that points to the future. And so a little warning: at the very bottom of this article on page 2, we'll reveal what that Easter egg is. "Man of Steel" opens June 14. New photos below.

    I like the casting choices, especially how similar young and old superman look...finally a movie that cares about the visual consistency.

    I just hope they get the relationship right between Lois and Clark, cause its never being right on film. Smallville was the first to get it right. Lois fell in-love with Clark and Supes.
    It was confusing to her that she could love two completely different people until she realized that they were the same person. It makes no sense that in Donner's version and Singer's version, Lois completely ignored Clark. She never saw him as a man, just a nerdy friend. That's not the icon love that Lois and Clark have in the DC universe. Of course Lois loves Superman, he's a god among men. She has to fall for Clark too.

    Apparently the relationship doesn't really exist in the movie.

    If Superman had a mask like Darth Vader, this henry #$@@ would be perfect. C'mom we have Brandon Routh!

    Gee... a black Perry White. So... Perry Black & White? And if it has Kevin Costner, you just KNOW every other word will be G.D. or f#*&! With Nick Cage's Supes fascination, I'm surprised he isn't playing Pa Kent... but, then I guess they want the audience to stay awake!

    THANK YOU!!!!!!! I REALLY NEEDED TO SEE THIS COMMENT. really sad that people only see skin not personality. thank you.

    Hey, gang... let's do Superman over again... and over again... and over again...and over...and...

  • Somedude | June 2, 2013 4:33 PM

    As many Superman movies as there are, they've never gotten the character nor a story to support him right. They needed to make this movie and give this DC flagship character justice. Hopefully they did just that. If not... then yeah... wait for another reboot in 5-10 years.

  • DG | June 1, 2013 6:35 PMReply

    I'm still not ready yet for a non-Heath Ledger Joker. Not really clamoring for a Justice League movie yet either. Let's wait and see how this plays out first.

  • zafina | June 1, 2013 4:33 PMReply

    Max. I see what you mean... Justice League can't happen yet. Needs more layers of character building.

  • Shall | June 1, 2013 2:10 PMReply

    Please if there is another superman with Lex as the bad guy.....this guy won't watch it. He has a whole roster of villains and they stick with the most uninteresting one.

    Darkseid anyone???

  • Joe | June 1, 2013 4:19 PM

    I'd probably get sick of the Joker too, if they used him in 2 out of every 3 Batman movies.

  • Chris | June 1, 2013 3:39 PM

    Are you joking? Lex is to Supes what the Joker is to Batman, and we all know how much people loves them some Joker...now. Lex lacks the supe strength but has the mental capacity to go toe to toe with Supes. Lex Luthor successful businessman, presidential candidate, potential slayer of Superman. Hell yeah! Throw in a possible Brainiac team up and I will camp out overnight for tickets.

    Pumped for Man of Steel. It looks righteous!

  • gwl | June 1, 2013 12:41 PMReply

    aside from the amy adams and diane lane stills, i think this looks super cheesy. par for zach snyder's career.

  • Alek Samm | June 2, 2013 4:01 AM

    @Curtis: Why do people like you continue the useless and pointless Marvel vs DC fan war? I like Marvel and I'm ****ing stoked for this. THIS is the Superman movie I've been waiting for that would bring Big Blue into the new millennium. Bring it on ZS!

  • Curtis | June 1, 2013 1:45 PM

    Why do people like you have to exist. You are either a Marvlinite or just a loser.
