I’ll be the first to admit the wait for any new information on the sequel to Man of Steel has been a tough one, but with the release so utterly far away we can’t really blame Warner Bros. for not opening the floodgates on news for the film. The downside of this blackout, however, is that the internet has stepped in to fill the void with an incessant amount of rumors, hopes, and flat out false reports about the film. Rumors and false reports about anticipated films is to be expected, but with Man of Steel 2 things have hit a fever pitch; not even the Dark Knight trilogy had this sort of whirlwind about it. With a huge amount of sites reporting this rumors as die-hard facts, I feel like someone needs to sort out the truths from the rumors and clear the air, and it might as well be me. Hit the jump to see what’s confirmed, what’s rumored, and which of those rumors are likely to turn out true, or false.
