Is there a chance that Anne Hathaway might be back as the White Queen, or Alan Rickman as the voice of the Cheshire Cat? We're not sure if they're even involved in the sequel's story, so that might not be necessary. It's probably safe to safe that Depp was »

Man Of Steel 2 Ever since it was first announced that the release of Zack Snyder's untitled follow-up to Man of Steel, commonly referred to as Superman vs. Batman, would be pushed back a year to May 6, 2016, the internet has been rife with rumors and speculation about the possible reasons for the delay, from new Batman Ben Affleck being injured to Warner Bros. afraid to battle it out with Marvel's The Avengers: Age of Ultron. However, the real reason could be far more mundane than anyone suspects. According to Academy Award-winner Jeremy Irons, who will be playing Bat-butler Alfred Pennyworth in the movie, the "script isn't entirely finished" yet.
