Charles Roven is an award-winning producer who also holds a nomination from the Academy Awards for his movie American Hustle in 2013. DCEU fans will know him as one of the producers for various movies under Zack Snyder’s vision. Movies such as Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Wonder Woman 1984, The Suicide Squad are under his roster. Even Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Dark Knight Rises and Man of Steel are also in the list.

Thus, Roven producing Superman will not be surprising. In fact, it will be adding fuel to the hope that Zack Snyder’s vision will really return for DCEU. It’s also possible that WBD also already has a shortlist of writers in their minds. We won’t be surprised if David S. Goyer would be back to write the sequel to his 2013 Man of Steel which his screenplay comes from the story he developed with a fellow Oscar nominee Christopher Nolan.

While Zack Snyder has equal chances of sitting at the director’s chair again, he already has his hands full with Netflix’s Rebel Moon. Although, one can never blame fans for hoping he would truly get to direct Henry Cavill’s Superman again.
