Posted November 23, 2019 11:04:01Ansel Adams was asked by Polygon whether he has any more projects in mind, but his answer was emphatic: We’re done.
The actor was asked about the possibility of returning to the Superman franchise in some capacity.
“I’m very happy with what I’ve done and I’m really happy to be back,” Adams said.
“It was great to work with Christopher [Manella] and all the guys and I had a great time.
I’m going to go back and do some new things, but I’m not going to do anything new.”
Adams has been a staple in the DC Universe for decades, but since “Superman” he’s been a bit of a recluse, even though he’s one of the few actors to have the privilege of appearing in over 100 films, including movies like “Man of Steel” and “Justice League Unlimited.”
It’s been the most recent, and possibly most controversial, movie to cast Adams in a role, as Superman Returns.
It’s also the last film to star Superman.
Adams’ Superman returns was released in the summer of 2019, and he appeared in it with fellow “Supermen” actor William Hurt and “Supergirl” star Melissa Benoist.
That film’s “Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins also produced the film, which was an immediate success and earned him a Best Director Oscar nomination.
“Superboy” director David Ayer, who has also helmed the “Justice Department” series, is also returning to Superman Returns, with a “Justice Forever” spinoff, and “Wonder Man” star Paul Rudd is also on board as an executive producer.
But even though we don.t have to see “SuperMan Returns” for at least another year, Adams and “The Flash” star Ezra Miller have been teasing it, and now we can finally confirm that Adams is indeed filming his next Superman film.
According to a post on the “Flash” official Facebook page, Adams is set to shoot his next “SuperMAN” film on November 29, 2018.
He’ll be filming with director Christopher Miller and producers Ben Affleck and Geoff Johns, who are currently filming “Man Of Steel” opposite Christopher Meloni and Geoff Shaw.
In a statement to Polygon, Affleck said that Adams and Miller are “an amazing team and we’re thrilled to be working with them on this epic project.”
The film is being produced by Warner Bros. Pictures, with Affleck as director and Miller as producer.
It marks the first time that Warner Bros., which owns DC Entertainment, has produced a film in more than 10 years, and marks the third time in 10 years that Affleck has directed a Superman film, following “Batman Begins” and 2016’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
The “Flash,” starring Ezra Miller, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Jesse Eisenberg, arrives in theaters on March 16, 2019.

The “Wonder” spinoffs, “Wonder Girl,” “Wonder Boy,” and “Green Lantern” are also in production, with Zack Snyder directing the latter two films.
Affleck, Miller, and Johns are also producing “Batman Vs.
Superman,” a “Batman: The Killing Joke” spin-off that also stars Jesse Eisenbert, Ben Affiero, Laurence Fishburne, and Holly Hunter.
“Wonder Women,” a spinoff of “WonderMan,” is set for release on April 1, 2019, but the film hasn’t been officially announced.
“Wonderman” is scheduled for release in 2020, and Affleck’s “Justice” spin off, “The Justice League,” is slated for release the following year.
