Best thing would be to just send a "I can't wait for the next Superman film! I really hope it will begin production soon."

Getting into prequel, reboot, etc... That just reminds them of the complicated mess we have with the franchise.

Not bad to let them know the fan base wants another one though imo.

They're not, they're probably focused on quite a few....Supes just may not be one of them.....yet.

Luckily, they're not ending up with another SR, which is already in low demand. So in a way, it's a good start. It's just as wise not to do something you shouldn't as it is to do something you should.

Perhaps they will, but that's soon, not now...and soon can be very soon, or relatively soon. When that soon comes, then we'll see where they are.

GL might be that as well, or something else may come along. you never know. Supes is definitely an option, but not imperative. If it was, we'd already have a sequel. Given SR, it's probably good to lay low on that for a while and let it drift father into the past before rebooting all over again. Heck, BB was still affected by the stigma over Batman & Robin 7 years prior. Not saying SR was as bad, but they'd still benefit from separation if they're rebooting.

I am not saying wait until Marvel goes bankrupt again before making more films. I am just saying wait till the hype for Avengers dies down before making your slate of comic book films. Because after that what else does Marvel have? A bunch of rehash's, reboots, sequels, and C-list characters to boot. Not exactly something audiences haven't already been exposed to. That's why I don't expect any DC films other than Green Lantern (Jonah Hex aside) to come out before Avengers, especially not Superman. But if they feel they need to get in while there currently such a huge demand for these films and characters, then WB needs to stop wavering and go ahead with it within the next 3-4 years, which is what we expect anyway. I personally don't think that's the best move though. I might wait a little longer depending on what happens in 2011.

Marvel fanboys live in lalaland...there is no hype for Avengers. Outside of Spidey and Iron Man, NO marvel characters are even remotely in demand right now.

And DC has....one. Granted, his movie is the second highest grosser of all time, but it's still just one.

Well of course who can argue with fanboys in denial that Thor and Cap are even going to happen. Stop smoking the weed Excel. Might do you some good.

I guess Excel isn't really aware that Iron Man IS one of the Avengers

That's pretty much what I sent alot of those guys. Just a very enthusiastic paragraph about my anticipation for the next superman movie.

That's all it takes. No one wants to read about your idea for the next movie, but it helps them to know that there are people out there that still WANT a superman movie.

I really thought TDK's success would have had the opposite affect that its had.
Instead of several films being announced (like they said would happen after the summit) we've got one, G.L.
Two if you count Jonah Hex......

I think the OP is right. After all, a letter-writing campaign saved Star Trek from being canceled.

Nolan stalling might be a big part of why nothing is happening right now.

I remember reading months ago that DC/WB was waiting on Nolan to make his decision before deciding what to do with Superman.

The only reason I would think they would do that is if they would consider a crossover Superman/Batman, or JL film with Bale in it if Nolan doesn't come back for a third Batman.

I just wish Nolan would make up his mind...it's been almost a year now.

I don't think a letter writing campaign does anything. They already know theyre gonna make another Superman movie and they're going to look at all thier options before they choose what they feel will make them the most money.

This.

It's not inconceivable that a mass amount of letters could sway their actions. After all, their mission is to appease the crowds for money.

I still think it is worth writing in regards to a Superman film PERIOD. It doesn't have to be for a sequel, or specific with Routh. I just want another film and the franchise on top, or at least close.
