A sequel to 'Man of Steel' is being fast-tracked by Warner Bros.
Deadline is reporting that Zack Snyder will direct for a second time, and that screenwriter David S. Goyer will be back to pen the script.
It's not yet known what 'Dark Knight' director Christopher Nolan will have to do with the project – he produced 'Man of Steel' – but it's thought he will have a role to play in production.
The move is said to be part of a three-film deal for writer Goyer, the third film of which is thought to be the gestating 'Justice League' project.
A script for the film was written last year by 'Gangster Squad' writer Will Beall, but was eventually scrapped.
Meanwhile, the first reviews of 'Man of Steel' have started to come in.
Luckily, it appears that the most hotly-anticipated film of year lives up to at least some of the hype.
Slashfilm calls it 'a super film that delivers on all levels', critic Germain Lussier adding: "Zack Snyder has made an epic and heartfelt adventure that successfully reboots the Superman character in a realistic, and humanistic way."
