Default Re: Anticipation for Sequel

Dude, you say JLA is happening, and MoS isn't. Seems that you can accept one set of facts, then conveniently ignore another.

Such as this:

Prior to the debut of Superman Returns in the United Kingdom, Brandon Routh hinted at the possibility of the sequel at a press conference, saying "At the end of this film we see that there is so much more to explore." Newsarama reported from the 2006 San Diego Comic-Con that director Bryan Singer had been in talks to direct a sequel for 2009.[37] According to the article, Singer said that while Superman Returns allowed him to introduce the cast, the sequel would allow him to 'go Wrath of Khan on it.' He added that there would be an alien villain. In another interview on, Singer indicated a possible return of the New Krypton island.[38]

On August 18, 2006, the Los Angeles Times reported that Warner president Alan Horn thought that Superman Returns "was a very successful movie" and that he was planning on a sequel for 2009.[citation needed] It had been thought that a Superman Returns sequel hinged on the film's domestic box office performance, with some media outlets suggesting that Warner Bros. wanted it to take in at least $200 million in the United States for a sequel to get the green light. The film officially passed the $200 million domestic mark on October 22, 2006.[2] On October 25, 2006, reported that a deal between director Bryan Singer and Warner Bros. had been finalized for a sequel. The budget will reportedly be reduced; however, the existing sets would contribute to lower costs across the board for the upcoming movie. In addition any sunk costs for the abortive sequels in the 1990s would not be included in the budget. The sequel is expected to be more action focused than its predecessor.[39]

The working title for the sequel has been reported, and neither confirmed nor denied, as Superman: The Man of Steel.[40] The focus will be on a tighter story with more villains and bigger action sequences.

Compare that, three paragraphs in wikipedia, with this for Justice League:

On February 22, 2007 Variety announced that Warner Brothers had hired Kiernan and Michele Mulroney to write a treatment for a potential Justice League movie. No announcement was made on the characters, actors, or crew involved.

Seems to me like SR has plenty more info on a sequel, and is thus probably more likely (see the bold text) than a JLA movie.

Now if you can present your own evidence, then please, enlighten me.

Like I said, give us evidence, or give us silence.
