... or not. According to actor Chris Evans, who told MTV that a third sequel was quite unlikely. "I'm pretty sure we won't do [another] one," Evans said, calling the project "a closed book."

BATMAN: GOTHAM KNIGHT
CBR News has a press release about the voice cast for the direct to DVD animated feature.
The Mark Millar movie-verse could be getting bigger if Ain't It Cool News is to be believed. They claim that director Matthew Vaughan is "holed up with Jane Goldman (his writing partner on 'Stardust') right now and working hard to get the script right. Considering Millar's only got the first two issues out at this point, this may turn out to be a case like Edgar Wright and 'Scott Pilgrim,' where Vaughn is working directly with Millar, already privy to where the series is headed."
Kryptonsite's spoilers page notes that actor Tom Welling will be directing the May 1st episode "Apocalypse."
THE MAN OF STEEL
Let's keep it Kryptonian for a moment -- we got an email from Eli about this article in Empire Online, with actor Brandon Routh saying it's unlikely for Zod to be in the sequel. "In the first one, the obstacle was Superman's love for Lois and his son, and Luthor using that against him," Routh said. "I just know that in the next film there will be a lot of action and I'm gonna get to fight something, or someone. An enemy with real physical power might be worked in there, definitely."
Creator Mike Allred was interviewed by Newsarama and said, "We're on what I hope will be the final polish of the screenplay. Some of the notes we got back have been addressed, and have been very useful to where the screenplay is much stronger. Now, we're concerned there might be a Screen Actors Guild strike! (laughs) So we're waiting to see if we have something we can put into production soon. I can say it's as close to a launch as it ever has been."
