‘Mad Max’ director George Miller rumoured to be directing ‘Man Of Steel 2’

The director of a recent Superman documentary claims Miller is on board for the sequel

Mad Max‘s George Miller is attached to direct a sequel to 2013’s Man Of Steel, according to John Schnepp, the maker of a recent Superman documentary.

Henry Cavill’s Clark Kent returns in next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, which is being directed by Zack Snyder, who also made Man Of Steel. However, Cavill recently confirmed that the film isn’t conceived as a sequel to Man Of Steel, but is instead “an expansion of the world that was created in Man Of Steel“.

“George Miller, he’s doing Man Of Steel 2,” Schnepp let slip during the DC Movie News YouTube show, adding: “I think George Miller is a perfect choice to do Man Of Steel 2, he’s going to bring so much to it.”

Neither Miller nor Warner Bros. has confirmed or denied the comments made by Schnepp, whose acclaimed documentary The Death Of Superman Lives: What Happened? tells the story of a cancelled late 90s Superman movie due to be directed by Tim Burton.

This year’s Mad Max: Fury Road is the first live-action film Miller has directed since 1998’s Babe: Pig in The City. It opened in May to hugely positive reviews and has now grossed over $373m (£238m) at the global box office.
