The Han Solo Movie Is Titled SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY

George Miller Rumored to Direct Man of Steel Sequel

Superman's road ahead could be filled with fury.

By Brandon Wolfe

Warner Bros. has come up with a sure-fire way to get the Internet excited about a sequel to its least-favorite movie of Summer 2013 - hire the director of its favorite movie of Summer 2015. George Miller, the 70-year-old madman who showed Hollywood's young whippersnappers how it's done with this summer's insane Mad Max: Fury Road, is rumored to be taking the reins from Zack Snyder for the upcoming Man of Steel sequel. This word comes from Jon Schnepp, the director of the crowdfunded documentary The Death of 'Superman Lives': What Happened?, who confidently revealed Miller's involvement on the latest episode of his podcast. Through his work on the documentary, Schnepp made many contacts with people in the know about all things Superman, so he is perhaps in a position to know what he's talking about. Plus, Miller was once involved with an earlier version of Justice League in the mid-'00s that came very close to happening, with such actors as Armie Hammer and Adam Brody having been cast. It stands to reason that he might want another crack at the DC Universe, and it certainly makes sense that Warner Bros. would want to make use of Miller's talents after Fury Road.

Still, given that Henry Cavill will have to go immediately from Batman v. Superman into Zack Snyder's two-part Justice League film, it could still be quite some time until Miller gets to make the second solo Superman film, presuming Schnepp's intel is solid. Miller has also stated his intentions to make further Mad Max installments, and he's also not getting any younger, so hopefully he can make the most of this unexpected second wind and accomplish all of these projects.
