SEQUEL ALREADY?

Think McFly Think reports that WB is already looking for writers to pen the sequel to Man of Steel, even though production hasn’t even wrapped yet. The short list includes Travis Beacham an Lawrence Kasdan.

ON LOCATION IMAGERY:

Just Jared, Oct. 12 – photos of Henry Cavill and Amy Adams on the set of Man of Steel

Crave Online, Oct. 13 – shots of a hairy, shirtless Henry Cavill in a scene some have speculated is prior to Clark Kent donning the blue tights

Hollywood Hills, Oct. 20 – a photo of Ayelet Zurer on location in Vancouver. Zurer plays Lara Lor-Van in Man of Steel, but she’s not in costume here, so it’s unclear what she’s doing in Vancouver

Just Jared, Oct. 25 – more photos of Cavill with his shirt off, this time on a green screen set, although Cavill has said, “That’s only one sequence, a small sequence in the movie.”

And here’s video from that shoot, which includes a Coast Guard helicopter:

And he talked with the Los Angeles Times about playing the icon, including the difference between Superman and Clark Kent and his approach to playing each. More on the Red Son influence, too.

What does “Lois and Clark” star Dean Cain think about Cavill as the new Last Son of Krypton? Head over to On The Red Carpet to find out.

Speaking of Clark Kent, Cooper Timberline has reportedly been cast as Young Clark. This, according to the movie’s Facebook fan site. At this point, is hasn’t been confirmed. [Superman Super Site]

While Amy Adams told “Access Hollywood” how working alongside the physically impressive Cavill was a bit “distracting”.
