In spite of mixed-to-negative reviews for March’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and the seeming demise of Henry Cavill’s Superman at the end of that film (spoilers!), Warner Bros. has decided to move forward with the official sequel to Man of Steel, which a trusted CLASH insider is saying has been tentatively titled Superman: Man of Tomorrow.

As the The Wrap reported yesterday, the sequel will star Henry Cavill reprising the role of Clark Kent/Superman. Details are scarce but according to The Wrap and our sources, the project is in “active development” and is considered a major priority for Warner Bros.

Back in April, Warner Bros. and DC Films announced two untitled comic book films. One was slated for October 5, 2018 and the other for November 1, 2019. With Affleck working steadily on the script for the untitled Batman film, it’s likely that Superman: Man of Tomorrow will occupy the 2018 slot.
