No one is seriously arguing that there won't be a sequel, just there is no ACTUAL news to report right now about the sequel. The new MOS2 topic would just be full of "Wow! MOS did great!" posts.
I'm not saying there's news to talk about regarding a sequel, nor that a new thread should be started, just that a sequel is close to a 100% certainty already.

"Man of Steel" made $21 million yesterday with the advance screenings. "Iron Man 3" did 24 or so. MOS is currently projected to do 160 million over this weekend if they continue the pace.

The Walmart promotion throws that comparison off a bit. With the way the Friday number is shaping up, MOS is looking at a Friday to Sunday weekend in the range of $125 million or $137 million with the Thursday promotion included.

Man of Steel got an A- CinemaScore. So far audience reaction is far more positive than critical reaction.

Check out this blurb from my local paper:

Don't fear skipping

"Should you skip Man of Steel?" asks USA Today, referring to Zack Snyder's new Henry Cavill-starring Superman movie, which has been showered with critical negativity. Follow your conscience.

No. It's not referring to itself in the third person.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

According to reports "Man of Steel" pulled in $44 million yesterday and is on it's way to pulling in around $130 million.

How long are we going to keep this thread around for now that the review and discussion thread has been around for a few days? There's not going to be really any more news or anything regarding this film? Unless we're keeping this for a non-spoiler review thread or something?

Seeing it this afternoon. Excited

Didn't realise mixed reviews mean showered with critical negativity and only from stuffy critics & not movie goers. If I was WB I would take issue with them and any other paper mis reporting especially if it could affect turnout = $$$

This is kinda OT, but it's pretty fun and interesting:
What would happen if Superman punched you in the face.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Man of Steel had a huge opening day in the UK. From The Hollywood Reporter:

Notably, the 3D movie -- starring British actor Henry Cavill -- grossed $5.2 million in the U.K., pacing ahead of blockbuster Iron Man 3 to score the best opening day of 2013 so far. Man of Steel captured 70 percent of the market and performed on par with last year's superhero extravaganza The Avengers.

In terms of other superhero pics, Man of Steel came in 88 percent ahead of The Amazing Spider-Man, 11 percent ahead of Iron Man 3 and 17 percent ahead of The Dark Knight.

The likelihood of a fast-tracked direct sequel to this, created by the same people, is 120 percent.

Man of Steel II speculation

Luthor retro-engineers his battlesuit from Kryptonian tech. Zod's armor reminded me of Lex's battlesuit from the 80s.
