No director want nothing do with superman. They just do it for the money and to make their resumes bigger.

I think Ratner is a decent director. But I have some serious doubts about both his ability to knock a Superman movie out of the park, and his ability to deal with the script and time-frame that FOX gave him.

Not only that, but a ton of people feel that there's nothing to 'fix' from X1/X2. (I fall in that category)

With all due respect Pickle, old friend...I dare say, the people who say there is "nothing to fix in X1/X2" are choosing to be blind. There are always things that can be fixed in movies...be it Lord of the Rings and The Godfather or Howard the Duck...every movie has problems.

Considering how well received both movies are, and that you can pretty much 'fix' even The Godfather I'm sure, as a whole there really isn't a need for it. The story that was meant to be told (Wolverine, acceptance/understanding/etc) was done so superbly. The 'pickings' are from fanboys who are mad their favorite isn't in the spotlight...and that is what it really comes down to.

(Just as those other movies you mentioned, they were done just fine as the director saw fit)

As long as Abrams wasn't involved in any way in the screenplay or writing of a future movie, then I could see him as being a respectable choice to direct.

He wouldn't be my first choice, but it wouldn't bother me to no end if he made a Superman movie....he seems pretty enthusiastic about Big Blue.

Just keep him the hell away from the suit design though.

Hostel was pretty well recieved among a teenage audience...does that make it good?

Furthermore, it is isn't nitpicking to critize X-men, both Ebert and Roeper, and practically every major critic in America critizied the first movie due to lack of action sequences.

Hostel and X-Men are nothing alike. Bad comparison there....different audiences, different intentions, different execution and different mediums. Bryan Singer turned comic characters on screen into 'people'. And the audience cared about them. (Just look at the success of X2)

I've got my own reservations about the action. I would have liked more. Not only that, but I got sick of Rogue pretty quick. I never said X1/X2 are beyond critiquing. I'm saying that it's pretty rare to get what the audience got on film, considering the 'source material' is something that major critics had only thought of as merely kids books. X1 and X2 are respected because Bryan Singer took them seriously, despite all the setbacks from the studio.

this is where ty-zort comes in. they find kal-el when he becomes superman on earth, and they send tyzor and 2 of his croonies-a hottst girl in town type girl named BAZ AL and a jacked beast named CAAN.

Tyzor himself, is much like supes. 6'3, huge, jet black, sauve hair. he has all superman spowers but he has a mean streak to him. "evil" in his eyes. he's clad in black tights(ala VENOM from SPIDEY) with a black cloak over his shoulders and huge black boots, and wields a red weapn called a "blasstaff" that, in the later drafts, became a sword/rocket launchers thats razor sharp and fires from both ends.

LMAO! You're joking, right? Ratner can't direct a good movie with good script. I hope he stay away from Superman. And how you know he cab fix what Singer did wrong with X-Men? For all we know, Ratner barely got involve with the script, so your point is incorrect. Even if he got involve, I doubt it would be good. I mean Ratner direct music videos too for God's sake!!

EXACTLY! Ratner for Superman Sequel Could care Less if singer Comes back even if This Movie Did well! Superman the Movie Did Great and Donner didnt Come back, this is one of those times where i Pray History Repeats itself in Terms of Singer NOT Returning! even if the Movie is a Hit!

So you're saying X3 doesn't look like crap? If I smoke the same thing you do, can I see X3 BEFORE IT COMES OUT too?

Many, MANY people disagree with you.

It's hard to take the opinion of someone that compares two VERY GOOD movies to a third movie THAT ISN'T OUT YET. I think you're the moron here, Ratnerfan.

Actually, a sign of habitual crack use is the inability to master proper capitalization.

Oh, here's some stats for you (if you can actually comprehend numbers and what they mean):

X-Men
Budget: $75,000,000
US Total Gross: $158,000,000 (oh, if that's too many zeros for your feeble mind to grasp, that's in millions)

Rotten Tomatoes: 80% positive
IMDb: 7.3/10

X-Men 2
Budget: $110,000,000
US Total Gross: $215,000,000

Rotten Tomatoes: 87% positive
IMDb: 7.9/10

I think the only people that agree with you are the ones who provide you with your very bad crack. Perhaps you should consider new vendors.
