Re: All Things Superman: An Open Discussion - - - - - - Part 15
They were actively considering making a sequel to Superman Returns before the court Order happened,despite SR under performing.
There were several reasons why sequel to SR never happened, and some of them are -
* Writer's strike.
* Studio execs were not pleased with Singers' pitch that he gave for the sequel.
* Internal Studio politics, pro Robinov group vs pro Alan horn group.
Even after the Court order to start a Superman movie production by 2012, they had the option to simply pay a fixed amount of money to Siegel's heirs for the loss of revenue for the movie not happening.
But WB made the decision to make the movie with all top talent and got Nolan as a producer, this does not sound to me as not making a strong effort to market it.
