Heroic Hollywood has even more information pertaining to the possibly plot of Warner Bros’ Man of Steel sequel, which may or may not have George Miller (Mad Max: Fury Road) in it’s directing chair.
He now adds that Brainiac won’t be the only villain of the film, as he creates Bizarro to find the Kryptoian Codex, but not the one stored within Superman. Brainiac is on the hunt for another Kryptoian on Earth, which had been teased previously in the first film. Superman’s cousin Kara Zor-El aka Supergirl is said to have a key role in the film.
Many believed the scene in Man of Steel with the empty cryotube in the Fortress of Solitude was meant to tease another Kryptoian, like Kara could be on still roaming around on Earth. Here is what Deborah Snyder had to say about the inclusion of Supergirl in future films, when speaking to Crave.
“You know what’s interesting, and I don’t know and I’m not going to say what it means or anything, but the one thing if you look closely when Henry’s going through the Fortress of Solitude there’s an empty… you know all the bodies… the pods? There’s an empty pod. I’m not going to say what, or if, it means anything but there is an empty pod there.”
Screenwriter David Goyer also spoke about this as well to AICN.
“I will say that I did intentionally leave some loose ends, not as sequel bait, but just because I thought they were interesting. I don’t know if anyone that’s viewed the film has picked up on this yet, but when Clark goes into the scout ship, which sort of becomes the Fortress of Solitude, you see four cryogenic sarcophagi for the crew that piloted that ship 18,000 or 20,000 years ago. There’s a shot there – and, it’s funny, at one point Zack took it out, but I cried ‘Uncle!’, and he put it back in. But you see there are four pods: three of them have skeletons in them, but one is open and there is no skeleton. Zack had missed it the first time he read the script. I pointed it out to him, and he was like, ‘Okay, that’s interesting. That’s an interesting loose end.’”
If true, this could add some much needed girl-power to the ranks of the Justice League movies, as it would be expected Supergirl would join sequels after her introduction, unless she is already apart of Justice League plans, before this Superman sequel.
Remember how badass Faora was, even though she was a villain? Now imagine a heroic version of her running around the DCCU, Kara would make a great addition to the Justice League lineup if you ask me.
If I had choose a current up-and-coming actress to play Kara Zor-El it would it be Alicia Vikander (The Man From U.N.C.L.E, Ex Machina, The Danish Girl, Bourne 4), and it doesn’t hurt she’s already worked with Warner Bros. and Superman himself Henry Cavill in The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
