Director, Christopher McQuarrie, has revealed some details concerning the Man of Steel 2 and Green Lantern Corps.
On a new Twitter thread between McQuarrie and DC movie fans, we now know more about what McQuarrie had planned for his DCEU arc – which would’ve apparently seen Man of Steel 2 connect directly into a new Green Lantern movie!
These latest details dispel the suggestion that McQuarrie’s ideas were turned down because they were too standalone and didn’t connect to the wider DCEU. The director makes it plain and clear that his Superman movie could’ve continued on from Man of Steel and then tied into his subsequent idea involving Green Lantern.
Zack Snyder’s vision for Justice League set the stage for the Green Lantern Corps to make a big DCEU debut. It sounds like McQuarrie really could have taken that baton and run with it. For fans of the DCEU (especially Zack Snyder’s DCEU films) this breakdown of Chris McQuarrie’s plans for the next stage of the franchise certainly will be enticing – which will make the disappointment of not getting it to sting even worse. In fact, one fan may sum it up perfectly with this tweet: “It’s like WB hates money.”
