It has been confirmed that "Man of Steel 2" is currently a work in progress, and that it is likely to premiere in 2019. Although no other details have been released, there are three characters that are expected to be introduced in the "Man of Steel" sequel.

The Wrap confirms that "Man of Steel 2" is already in the works. The sequel is reportedly an active development and a top priority for Warner Brothers. Although this is true, "Man of Steel 2" has a long way to go before its release. "Wonder Woman" and "Justice League" will both be released in 2017. "Aquaman" will debut in 2018, followed by another "Batman" film, pushing the standalone Superman movie to 2019.

Newsweek reports that Henry Cavill's manager — Dany Garcia — has confirmed that he is already filming "Justice League." At the same time, Cavill is preparing for "Man of Steel 2." While Superman fans are waiting for his new stand alone movie, Superman will be next seen in the "Justice League" movie that will be released in 2017.

Heroic Hollywood previously posted three characters that can be expected in "Man of Steel 2." Although the page can no longer be found, Cinema Blend was able to capture who these three characters are: Brainiac, Supergirl, and Bizarro.

Brainiac, one of Superman's greatest villains, is an alien supercomputer who is on a mission to find the codex that contains the genetic information of the Kryptonians that were sent to Earth. He will be able to track the codex, and he will find that it is in the hands of Supergirl. Brainiac will attempt to retrieve the codex from Supergirl and create a Superman clone named Bizzaro with the use of the Kryptonian genetic codes that he already has, and have him do the dirty work.
