Does that mean that Zack Snyder is too busy with Justice League to focus on Man of Steel 2? Seems kind of odd that Snyder's not directing it.

Well, It seems just a rumour at this point but if Miller takes the assignment is because he thinks that he could do a good job with it. He definitely is a fan of DC comics :)

This news confused me at first, because I thought the upcoming BvS film *was* Man of Steel 2, just with Batman and Wonder Woman featured. Then I realized that name probably only pertains to ones that feature no other heroes (or feature not as prominently).

BvS is certainly Man of Steel 2, this rumor doesn't really make sense. Though maybe I could see it if this hypothetical film involves Superman's adventures in other galaxies or something, but to me that sounds like overkill.

I understand the confusion and I think that you are now in the right track. Expanding a bit more BvS:DoJ which originally was MoS II but evolved to be more about introducing the new Batman (besides focusing on Superman) and the dawn of the Justice League (introducing in a lesser fashion Wonder Woman and a bit of Aquaman, Flash and Cyborg). Then Snyder goes to direct the next Justice League films. Affleck directs the Batman solo ones, James Wan directs Aquaman, Patty Jenkins directs Wonder Woman and maybe Miller directs the next real Man of Steel II where Superman will be the main (if not only) superhero attraction.

All assuming audiences somehow never tire of superhero films of course. I'm completely over the Marvel entries at this point - they've all been reduced to $1 rentals (at best) for me. The DC stuff might offer something new, but I suspect they're more trying to CLONE Marvel's success, as opposed to offering genuine original experiences/characters. I do like Snyder's work, so will probably check out BvS. But if that turns out to effectively be Marvel characters in DC costumes, I'll be done with the entire superhero genre going forward.

No, I think DC learned its lesson about cloning Marvel with Green Lantern. DC is supposed to be closer to space opera, closer to Star Wars. Man of Steel is the first DC movie that starts to embrace that.
