While Superman's image was somewhat redeemed in Justice League (despite his odd-looking mouth), there's clearly a lot of work which still needs to be done with the character and it appears as if another Man of Steel movie isn't currently a priority for Warner Bros. After all, there was no mention of the hero at Comic-Con and with a Justice League sequel unlikely, his future remains uncertain.
Now, Geoff Johns has weighed in on where things stand with Superman and it sounds like the studio is definitely aware of his popularity. "Look, working with [DC Films president] Walter Hamada and [Warner Bros. President and CCO] Toby [Emmerich] over there at [Warner Bros.], they feel the same way. Everyone loves Superman and knows how important Superman is," Johns explained.
"It’s not in my wheelhouse now to really say anything beyond that but... I got into this business because of Superman: The Movie, because Dick Donner directed what I think is still an amazing superhero film but an amazing film — it’s an American film, it’s a classic." He went on to say that the movie actually inspired his work on Wonder Woman 1984 just like with the first instalment.
When do you think we'll see Superman return? Is Shazam! a possibility or are you rooting for a solo movie? Be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments section and stay tuned for more.
