LOTR had to be long, to cover most of the books. Kong didn't need to be that long, but I'm glad it was.

maybe, but there were parts that were too slow and could have gone faster.

So apparently now, rumours are going around with Batman that a sequel might indeed come out in 2010 (just a rumour, nothing more). If this does happen I think it would be to superman's benefit and ours. It would give them the proper amount of time to find a great script and director and would only be 3 years away. I think supermans future on screen will be dependent on batman once again because if they can't get something together for 2010, i really dont see them releasing superman in 2011 with batman.

Where are these rumors coming from? Do you have any links?

I'll believe it when I see it. As of right now I firmly believe that another Superman movie won't be coming out in 2010. Thats too soon to get everything together for an all new version of Superman.

To be fair, Jett has said he doesn't buy this.

If they go with a big time director it should be Ridley Scott....he has big ties with WB's.

Maybe we should make a game out of this.

We could start with everyone guessing who the director will be.

Next would be casting.

People would get points for getting it right.

I really thought that with WB choosing this route that they had heard a pitch that they really liked and had people in mind. The way it seems is like there going no where except they know they want to reboot. Who knows, come next summer is McG's terminator does well I wouldnt be surprised if that guy was back on. Wasn't he an airplane ride away from making it the first time.

Yup. If i remember correctly McG is afraid of flying in planes. WB wanted to shoot the superman in australia and that's why McG declined / was fired.
Oh well. If he manges to make a good Terminator movie , i'll support him. Still dunno if he'd go to australia.

Does WB still want to shoot many of their blockbusters in australia because of the fiscal advantages

Bay at the helm

PROS :
The guy is great when it comes to making entertaining movies. He's can shoot action very very well. Hell i'd definately want to see certain Bay shots with superman.

CONS :
He sucks at the story. Not a big problem IMO for the first superman movie. But yeah even i would rather have superman movies with depth AND action as opposed just action.

MTV editing


So yeah it's 50/50 for me

Don't hold your breath anticipating McG's involvement with the revival film. And there was obviously more to his leaving the project back in 2003 than just "he was afraid to get on a plane!"

I think thats very hard to belive. For that, Warner should have made a choice about who is screenwriter and director, what doesnt seem to be the case so far.

Only if they choose Millar and his misterious director and are waiting to make an annoucement :P

Oh, alright. Well I don't believe that rumor. Nolan isn't the type of director that rushes out his films.

Because the J.J. Abrams script was downright awful that's why. After the script review AICN did, WB knew they had a stinker of Batman & Robin proportions therefore screwing up the Superman reboot they wanted.

And if they went with the Abrams script this time around when they want to do a reboot yet again, it will kill the Superman film franchise.

Krypton still around. King Jor-El. Suit in a can. Superman returns to Krypton in the end. Kryptonian CIA agent Lex Luthor.

No because Australia just got rid of those fiscal advantages a few months ago. It helped kill the Justice League Mortal project.

And finally, the Superman sequel Man of Steel. The WB insider recognizes there has been a lot of buzz on the internet following the success of Iron Man and The Dark Knight, for a Superman sequel, but they really just don't know what's going on at this time. I asked him if Bryan Singer was still attached. He said he didn't know where it stands right now at the studio level since Singer has been busy on Valkyrie.

Did they completely get rid of the tax rebate ? I thought that george Miller wanted a higher tax rebate ( 30 %) as opposed to the usual one that is given by the australian goverment ( 10 %'ish)

Oh well. WHo knows maybe they'll decide to shoot the movie in Germany , at the babelsberg studios. V for Vendetta , Speed Racer , Ninja Assasin and Valkyrie have been shot there and the german goverment is also encouring other studios to to the same by making it cheaper ( tax rebates).
