There is the big Father called WARNER........if he likes to have Lex Luthor again in the sequel, they should kick him, sorry.

Enough is enough, no more Donner Hommage, no more Luthor. Enough is enough.
Look at Raimi whats he doing, think he is the best thing happened to Spider-Man. He is the greatest Spider-Man director they could get, all those villains, it feels like a comic book with all those Fun action packed supervillains.

The Sequel needs a KICK and more than that...

Maybe a new director would be the way to go... I'm not really interested in his superman story.

You people keep crying about action. The first, and best, film of the franchise had LITTLE action.

This movie was awesome.

Singer's cinematography was really poetic. A perfect example is Supes falling back to earth as we get a POV of people on the ground watching him fall with dead silence.

I'm all for Singer returning.

I believe its to hard to tell right now, in another 3 wks we should know something I would think. Its a given with POTC coming out this week, that the film is gonna have a 60-70 % drop in attendance. If it doesnt gross more than 20 million this weekend were in trouble I believe. Then I would think Singer would not do it, and then maybe go back and direct Wolverine, or Magneto.

I just don't see it. This movie will be lucky to break even at this point, so I don't think WB will risk this happening again. I see this as being Singer's first and last Superman movie.

Still, you're not factoring in worldwide gross or DVD sales.

I don't even know why i'm talking about this, because I don't really give a crap for Box office.

You should, because if it fails at the BO, sequel talks die.

I don't think he was exactly planning to do the sequel. Have you guys even heard any of the interviews he's done up to this point?

From what I understood, if this one took off the way they were expecting, the sequel would go into pre-production shortly after it's theater run. Singer himself said he didn't know if he would be available due to other projects he's vested in at the moment "Logan's Run" for instance. I could be wrong because I only caught snippets of an interview he did on A&E so don't take this as gospel.

I was just wondering if anyone actually knew if he was committed to another one or not.

When is this "Logan's Run" supposed to happen. I have been hearing him talk about it for years now.

Well....I don't know, but he's still talking about it. He's supposedly working on it now.

Kids don't have money. 18-24 year olds and adults do. You make a good film by hooking both audiences. Something X2 (a Singer film) did nicely. Something Spider-Man(s) does nicely. Something X3 utterly failed at. True it made an a$$load it's first weekend, but it also had the largest dropoff in sales against little to no competition. Thats because adults and young adults did not reccomend it to friends or want to see it a second time.

According to IMDB he's slated to direct the sequel and Harris/Daugherty are slated to write the screenplay. Lucky us.

The problem with Singer leaving the franchise (or even staying) is that he's screwed anyone coming in, because of creating a son for Superman. Hopefully if a new director comes aboard they'll do a complete relaunch ala Batman Begins. Of course, Singer has done a good job at missing the mark on Superman due to his blind devotion to S:TM, and his yes men Harris/Daugherty.

Singer will come on to do the second and then leave the franchise for another superhero movie.

Bastard.

And some of us do not really want our comic book hero's humanized we like them as iconic COMIC BOOK HERO'S you know a flying storm from day one....A more original superman story based of the comics or heck even STAS etc etc etc....
get a life geek he made one of the best superhero movies of all time. What on earth did you want out of this movie. Let me guess you think you can do a better job. Get over it this movie was epic.

Is that you LastSunrise?

Anywho, before you start you large rant, let me tell you, I know a good movie when I see one. Tues at 10:00, I didn't see one. You don't like it? I don't care. Enjoy the movie all you want, just don't expect others to do the same.

Ummm huh just because you didn't like X3 don't try to group yourself with anyone or even act like you know what you are talking about most people enjoyed the movie and the BO numbers show that.
Strange how you mention how it costs money to buy tickets then discount the money it made....so it must have umm hooked audiences and you not reccomending it doesn't mean people didn't reccomend it again see BO numbers, they tell the tale and do not spin it as crap like you are trying to do.

Ahh, the ever popular "can you do better" defense. Do you defend every movie you watch? I doubt it, and I bet you couldn't do better, but I know that there is someone out there that could. He is who I want. Your defense is weak, and if you don't have a strong defense, then just sit back.
