Los Angeles: "Mad Max: Fury Road" helmer George Miller is reportedly being eyed to direct the sequel to Zack Snyder's Superman reboot "Man of Steel 2".
The film is delayed due to the release of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". According to Jon Schnepp who directed the documentary of Tim Burton's cancelled movie "Superman Lives", Miller is expected to direct the sequel, reported Ace Showbiz. "George Miller is doing Man of Steel 2. I don't feel weird about breaking it," Jon said in a recent podcast as quoted by Collider.
"Obviously Zack Snyder is doing Justice League one and two, James Wan is doing Aquaman. ... I think George Miller's a perfect choice to do Man of Steel 2. He's going to bring so much to it."
Miller, 70, is fresh off "Mad Max: Fury Road" which received rave reviews from moviegoers. He is expected to return behind the lens for the sequel "Mad Max: The Wasteland" with Tom Hardy back in the lead role. There are also chatters about a spin-off that focuses on Charlize Theron's Furiosa.
