5 Classic Superman Stories That Could Fuel Man Of Steel 2
To the surprise of no one, Warner Bros. already allegedly green lit a sequel to Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, expecting the new movie to earn north of $100 million over its opening weekend. We thought Warner might want to pursue a Justice League movie, or possibly a World’s Finest team up of Batman and Superman. But it sounds like Man of Steel 2 will happen before those movies come to fruition.
Which got me thinking: Of all the classic Superman storylines from decades and decades of comics, which do we think could lay the foundation for Snyder and screenwriter David S. Goyer’s sequel? Lord know that they have loads of old stories to sift through. Let’s figure out five vintage Superman stories that would make excellent fodder for a Man of Steel sequel.
1. Lex Luthor: Man of Steel
As you might have heard, Man of Steel contains Easter Eggs suggesting the existence of Lex Luthor in Snyder’s Metropolis. In much the same way that The Dark Knight introduced The Joker, Luthor probably needs to be the focus of a Man of Steel sequel, and no book better examined the thought process behind Luthor’s criminal plots than Brian Azzarello’s graphic novel. Stick to this script, and Snyder could deliver the quintessential Luthor story set to film.
