You know what is hilarious, people are criticizing Brandon for not having enough work between Returns and a proposed sequel, and because Singer is working on more movies it means the sequel is delayed or canceled.

I have an interest in superman. I just plotted out 3 movies to myself. Now its time to write a screenplay. Sadly no one will ever read it if I ever get it done. But the man of steel fights Mettlo(spelling) in it and Lex has Lexcorp now, and it all fits with superman returns. I still have a problem with the super-kid though. But the movie takes place during the summer so its one line of Lois saying he is at camp. Problem solved at least for the first screenplay. Im sure no one will ever read it. But I thought it was cool. It even ends with a setup for Cadmus.

Singer's such a horrible director, various studios can't stop asking him to helm their respective projects......

Yes, a totally harmless statement. But I wouldn't put it past some SR apologist to come along and twist it into a personal attack.

No. Try reading the words again.

Is a movie about gay rights as big a box office vehicle as the Superman franchise. No, clearly it isn't.

Nothing bigoted about the comment at all.

But it does paint an interesting picture of your character that you are so desperate to mud sling, simply because I've wrecked you in the other thread. Pathetic.

Quite frankly, you should be ashamed of yourself.

Totally harmless? You just said that a movie about a flying man in tights is more important than a movie promoting gay rights.

That's because it is. Both from a business standpoint for WB, and from my own standpoint in that I go to the movies to be entertained. I'm usually more entertained by films like SR than some art piece with an agenda to present/advance. So therefore Superman is more important.

He's not a horrible director, but he was miscast in Superman.

As for me, I can't say I'm looking forward to any sequel in the Singerverse.

I personally feel some sort of announcement is coming soon,about whether or not a sequel is happening.As for a redo like the Hulk,I don't like that idea.It's like WB saying we made a mistake and we want to know how to fix it.I think if an SR sequel is a no go they should just put Superman away for about ten years or so,and then boom bring him back with a reboot,starting from scratch.

My only fears with a redo like the Hulk is that in an attempt to make it different than SR they'll hire a filmmaker who is in no way suited to do Superman,just to get more action into the film.We could possibly end up with another Batman & Robin,or Quest for Peace.The only way I'd want another Superman film anytime soon is if it's a direct sequel to SR,if not do as I said and wait ten or so years and then bring back Superman bigger and better than ever,all it needs is the right talent.

A Superman movie is a bigger entity for Warner Bros. A point of fact it is their biggest franchise (or should be if Singer hadn't dropped the ball).

Yes it is, and everyone reading this discussion can see my exact words so you are a bare faced liar.

No, the truth of the matter is that you saw what you wanted to see, an opportunity to take a cheap shot. In fact you only joined in this thread to sling mud.

Of course everyone else herein had read my comments and taken them at face value without any problems.

You were the only one who saw fit to twist the meaning for your own purposes. But sadly its backfired.

I would like to know where the franchise is headed but it's quite difficult to be very interested in glee up to your eyeballs when you have absolutely no information on the film.

I think the main lack of fan interest now is simply down to no confirmation from WB on what is happening

This seems like a possibility,if WB are weighing up whether to do a sequel or quasi reboot then TIH will be a good gauge on how well a reboot so soon goes down with the audience

I don't believe that WB is waiting for HULK, but if the sequel is delayed past that point I am sure they will keep their eyes peeled and their ears to the ground.

guys, take it easy...no need for arguements...unless its involving the movie/sequel.

Singer is NOT a bad director. The movie just sucked. He wasn't even miscast for the movie, because with his track record of x-men and usual suspect, i thought he would bring forth an amazing movie.
