Though we've definitely got a DC Movie Universe forming now, a few years ago we almost had a very different one in the form of George Miller's Justice League. Now that the legendary director has returned with Mad Max: Fury Road, many fans are even more disappointed that we won't ever get to see Miller's superhero vision, which made the rumors back in August that he would try again with a Man of Steel sequel all the more exciting.

At the moment, we don't even know if "Man of Steel 2" is a thing that will happen in any form. Director Zack Snyder has said he considers next year's Batman v Superman: Dawn ofJustice to be the film's true sequel, and at present Warner Bros. doesn't have another Superman standalone movie on its schedule (that we know of). Still, the idea of George Miller taking on Superman is intoxicating.

So, is there any truth to it? Well, speaking to Digital Spy to promote the Fury Road Blu-ray this week, Miller addressed rumors that he's been talking to Warner Bros. about Man of Steel 2.

"There's been some of that in the mix," Miller said, seemingly referring to actual conversations with the studio, "but it's ... I'd say probably not true."

The word "probably" might give fans some hope, but for the moment Miller isn't concerned much with superhero filmmaking. In fact, after the grueling Mad Max process, he seems to be thinking small.

"I hope the next film I make is a very small film without any special effects and not many stunts," he said.
