A sequel to Man of Steel has long been expected, but there hasn't been much news about it thus far. Last we heard, the DC film was in "active development", but that was eight months ago.

News recently broke that Suicide Squad director David Ayer will stay in the DC film universe with an all-female film called Gotham City Sirens, which will star Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. But buried beneath that news is the potential of two other films based on this winter's DC team up.
Last week, the news came out that Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow) would direct a Justice League Dark movie, with a script from Guillermo del Toro, who would be sticking around to produce. All of that sounds like great news, but there's just one issue: The looming presence of Warner Bros. over it all.
