Warner Bros. is beginning "active development" on a true sequel to 2013's Man of Steel, according to TheWrap. Citing an undisclosed source "familiar with the project," the online Hollywood trade relays that "Superman is a top priority for the studio and getting the character right for audiences is of tantamount importance."
Although Zack Snyder has referred to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as a sequel to Man of Steel, Superman actor Henry Cavill said himself that it wasn't an actual sequel. Jor-El actor Russell Crowe has said previously that several Man of Steel films were originally planned before Warner Bros. changed gears to go directly into Batman v Superman.
Although appearing dead at the end of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Cavill-as-Superman appeared in the official team image for 2017's Justice League film, released at Comic-Con International: San Diego.
