Man of Steel doesn't officially come out until midnight tonight, but Warner Bros. has already tapped director Zack Snyder and David S. Goyer to write and direct a fast-track sequel for Man of Steel. They are also hoping it will kickstart other DC movies leading into the Justice League movie.
David Goyer has already revealed that Warner Bros. is starting to move on Wonder Woman and Aquaman to create a shared universe for Justice League to expand on. He also says that with Superman revealing himself to the world in Man of Steel opens up a whole can of worms when it comes to the superheroes being known. It also could lead to Batman putting back on his cowl after the events of The Dark Knight Rises. Another bit of info that is important to remember is he mentioned that they want the fast-track Man of Steel sequel to be before Justice League and that kind of pushes the desired 2015 release out of possibility.
Now... to me this sounds like they are trying to mimic what Marvel did almost exactly. Iron Man started it and the other heroes kind of followed suit ending (sort of) with The Avengers. Batman kind of played the Iron Man role with Nolan's trilogy, so if Superman is acting as DC's version of Thor in terms of letting the general public know of the "superhuman" heroes then that will open up the arena for even more Superman and for Wonder Woman and Aquaman to follow.
In other words, DC and Warner Bros. are just taking notes on what is working for Marvel.
