planning too far ahead again and looking to create a superhero franchise way before the first egg has hatched. Word is the studio wants a sequel to Man of Steel
, even though Zack Snyder's take on Superman starring Henry Cavill is still filming.ThinkMcFlyThink.com
has sources quoting Warner Bros. execs as saying, “We have a winner here, you fellas are gonna love it and we’re getting the ball rolling for more now because of that.
” The studio already has a shortlist of writers, topped by their go-to guy Steve Kloves
(the "Harry Potter" series), Travis Beacham
(Clash of the Titans
, Pacific Rim
) and Lawrence Kasdan
(Stars Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
, Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
Warner Bros. has recently recruited a writer for a third Sherlock Holmes movie
and Sony has done the same for a sequel to The Amazing Spider-man

where a trilogy was promised.
The Zack Snyder directed Man of Steel will hit theaters in June 2013.
