It may not be a proper sequel but neither is Wolverine, they are still part of franchises with the same character
but just with a new story but not being rebooted with an origin story. that's why I thought I'd include them.

Ah, I see where you're coming from with this. Wolverine is a confirmed sequel because it takes place after "X-Men 3". That's what it seems to be so far but you are right with that film. "Man of Steel" on the other hand is a "hard reboot". It is an origin story. And there are plot points that would make it drastically different from the Chris Reeve series of films and even "Smallville" for that matter, even though they have taken elements from the show.

BUMP!!

I am really looking forward to the following sequels released between now and end of next year in this order -

Expendables 3
Terminator 5
Fast & Furious 7
Jurassic Park 4
Sin City 2

I know 2 of them are technically reboots but to me if it stars a cast member from the original series, it's a sequel.

there are other sequels released sure, but not that excited for... but I chose 5.

how about you guys?
