By the point we really see one other standalone Superman film within the DC Prolonged Universe, it can have in all probability been a minimum of six years since Man of Metal, which got here out in 2013. Warner Bros. goes to make it occur in some unspecified time in the future and Man of Metal 2 is within the growth course of. One of many subsequent steps will likely be getting a director connected to assist get the film in form and it seems like Jurassic World 2 director J.A. Bayona might have an interest within the job, ought to Warner Bros. come knocking.
The director not too long ago did an AMA on Reddit with a purpose to promote his newest film A Monster Calls, which is presently getting some severe awards season buzz. Through the course of the AMA, J.A. Bayona revealed that the 1978 Richard Donner Superman was the primary film he ever noticed and that helped him determined he needed to be a filmmaker. Here’s what he had needed to say.
“The primary film I noticed in my life was Superman. I used to be three years previous. The primary reminiscence I had was Christopher Reeve flying within the go well with. Directing a Superman movie could be nice. I at all times needed to be Superman. That is the movie that made me wish to develop into a director.”
We reported a number of months in the past that Man of Metal 2 is in energetic growth and that Warner Bros. is contemplating it a significant precedence shifting ahead. It additionally looks as if Zack Snyder will not be returning to the director’s chair for the upcoming sequel, so Warner Bros. might want to discover somebody who can. Sometimes, filmmakers can form of will a mission into existence by publicly expressing their need to do it. So who is aware of? Perhaps J.A. Bayona will wind up on the shortlist for Man of Metal 2. Assuming he does job with Jurassic World 2, he’ll absolutely be in line for fairly just a few massive jobs within the close to future. He has actually already made it clear he has expertise with The Not possible and The Orphanage, in addition to with A Monster Calls, by most accounts from those that have already seen it.
As for Jurassic World 2, the film is presently getting its forged collectively and readying for a manufacturing that’s supposed to begin subsequent month. The film will primarily be shot within the U.Ok. however may even be taking pictures some scenes in Hawaii, presumably as a result of a minimum of a number of the film will likely be going down on the now absolutely closed down dinosaur theme park, given what occurred within the first Jurassic World. Exterior of that, we do not know a lot about Jurassic World 2 by way of plot, however we do know that Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will each be returning and that it will not simply be dinosaurs chasing folks round on an island. J.A. Bayona is taking up directing duties from Colin Trevorrow, who will likely be busy with Star Wars: Episode IX, however he’s nonetheless producing and co-writing the script for Jurassic World 2.
If we assume that J.A. Bayona a minimum of makes a film pretty much as good as the primary Jurassic World, if you throw all of his skills in a blender, he looks as if the proper man to sort out a Superman film. He can do massive motion, he can do severe emotion and after Jurassic World 2, will probably be clear he could make a large blockbuster. The DC Prolonged Universe is not precisely in the perfect of locations after each Batman V Superman: Daybreak of Justice and Suicide Squad did not impress most critics and divided followers. Superman, particularly, has been handled poorly on display within the eyes of many followers, regardless of having an actor in Henry Cavill who could be very devoted and looks as if he was born to play the half. So having a man like J.A. Bayona sort out Man of Metal 2 could possibly be simply what the DCEU wants. We’ll need to see how issues go along with Jurassic World 2 first, which is scheduled for launch on June 22, 2018.
