Zack Snyder Claims Open Pod In Man of Steel Is Not A Supergirl Easter Egg

Last week it came to light that Warner Bros and DC Entertainment are developing a stand-alone Supergirl movie for which they have roped in 22 Jump Street and The Cloverfield Paradox fame screenwriter Oren Uziel. Soon after the news broke out, fans began wondering if Supergirl has any connection with the mysterious open pod shown in one of the Man of Steel scenes.

To recall, a scene from Zack Snyder’s 2013 released Man of Steel movie shows Henry Cavill’s Clark Kent enter an abandoned Kryptonian spaceship hidden in the Arctic where he finds out the truth of his alien heritage. He discovers several pods containing the deceased bodies of Kryptonians. The presence of an open pod in the background of the scene suggests that Superman isn’t the only survivor of Krypton in the DCEU.

With the announcement of the standalone movie, fans have begun speculating if the open pod has any connection with Clark’s biological cousin, Kara Zor-El, otherwise known as Supergirl.

When a Vero user asked the same question to Zack Snyder, he clarified that the mysterious pod in the Kryptonian ship had little to do with the female superhero.

The open pod was something more,” Snyder answered.

While the filmmaker cleared the air about the pod, he didn’t elaborate on what he meant by “something more.” This has left fans to their wild speculations.

Talking more about the stand-alone Supergirl movie, rumors are that the film studio is on a lookout for a female director for the film. The film also doesn’t have a producer attached at the moment. It still remains a big mystery whether or not Superman will appear in the upcoming film. The already popular Greg Berlanti-produced Supergirl TV series is heading into its fourth season. The show features actress Melissa Benoist essaying the role of Supergirl.
