'Man of Steel' Sequel News and Thoughts; Latest S.H.I.E.L.D. Promo

Man of Steel movie sequel news
New is that the Man of Steel sequel getting fast tracked!  Boy, that was fast.  It's not abnormal to see news about a sequel about any movie.  It's a quaint form of movie marketing to make a movie look good to potential movie goers.

But as the movie is opening, starting June 12th, worldwide, Warner Brothers is embracing the opening buzz and talking about Zack Snyder is locked in for three Superman films.  This one, its sequel, and a Justice League movie with Superman in it.  Also on board the newest gravy train of superheroes, is screenplay writer David S. Goyer.  But nothing substantial has been mentioned about producer Christopher Nolan, who co-wrote the screenplay of Man of Steel.

Which is something that concerns me.

Right now, early word on Man of Steel is that it's a pretty good movie.  And if that's true (Which I expect, with Nolan being a part of the creative process), this could be a bit of a harbinger of worry if he's not attached to the sequel.

I can't imagine that, but hey, Nolan has big plans for the upcoming year or two, with upcoming projects like exec producing the sci-fi thriller, Transcendence (now filming with Johnny Depp, Kate Mara, Morgan Freeman and more) and the sci-fi movie, Interstellar, that he's writing, producing and directing.  This new movie project has Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Matthew McConaughey and Michael Caine.

So there's time for Nolan to get his ducks in a row for Superman sequels.  We'll see how things pan out.  That man can write his own tickets.  That must be awesome.

On a different superhero front (sort of), the latest teaser for Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D. came out during the NBA finals game.  It's a quickie snippet of new clues as to what we can expect from the series.
