Legendary dumps Man of Steel 2 for Interstellar

One very visible element of “Man of Steel” won’t be returning for the 2015 sequel. And this is where I break it to Brandon Routh that I’m not referring to the film’s Superman.

The Henry Cavill-starring “Man of Steel 2 : Howdy Batman!” won’t have Legendary Pictures on its producer credit block. The production company has instead decided to spend it’s time and money on being a partner on Christopher Nolan’s imminently successful “Interstellar”.

Yep, it’s rather like the school tart ditching your perfectly-good self for your best bud. Wish them well… I know it’s hard, but just try. Nah, screw it. Superman, fly over, give the birdie to your former partner as they joyfully welcome Interstellar into their home. It’ll make you feel good, brother.

Legendary is ending its relationship with Warner Bros soon, but most expected they’d still hang onto their share of “Man of Steel 2″. Assumingly their loss will be someone else’s gain.
