It could very well be way too soon for that.
I think many in the industry would agree that the Superman/Lois romance got incredibly stale in recent decades, especially in the 90s. Wrong turns were made. In fact, I remember a recent interview where Grant Morrison and many others were pointing out why Superman/Lois simply doesn't work. Maybe MoS could bring Lois' relevance back, but I'm doubtful whether the romance will even be a prevalent feature in this film given who wrote it. It will probably take a backseat to the more important stuff.
And it's also a bigger leap to suggest that with everything that's coming out in 2015 that Warner Bros. would still feel confident that they could release something that's more of a wild card than something more stable like a sequel to Man of Steel.
If Warner Bros. can't find a cast and crew for the film within a given amount of time, especially for a 2015 release, along with MOS being a success, then it's likely that MOS 2 will happen in 2015.
Also, I, along with several others, think that it's absolute b.s. about Lois not having had relevance within the comics prior to the New 52.
I still think it's quite sad to this day that we live in a age where a normal/stable/happy marriage between two characters is considered "dull" and not a "journey" of its own and that the only thing that being "single" or not "committed" is relevant for some.
And assuming if that passionate kiss between the two shown within the CC trailer is of any indication, there will be feelings involved.
Honestly, I have yet to meet or hear from one person on why Lois was irrelevant prior to her New 52 characterization and why the relationship between the two wouldn't work out anymore.
And I don't know about anyone else, but I rather go with a MOS sequel in 2015 if the first film is a success than something that the studio is only going forward with because of their greed, which could set their comic film division even further back.
