Back in 2011, Zack Snyder was adamant that “Man of Steel”, starring Henry Cavill as Super Man/Clark Kent, would be separate from a planned “Justice League” film. Now we know that JL is coming in 2015. And “Man of Steel”?

Snyder had this to say about his Super Man film and the JL film: “they trust me to keep them on course”

He did go on to say he has no idea who is handling the JL film, but this seems to acknowledge that Cavill will be playing Super Man in both franchises. Of course, WB still has a problem with Batman since Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale are done. It does seem increasingly likely that Joseph Gordon-Levitt would step in, he already has an established character and WB can do what it wants with Nolan’s Batman universe.
