Apparently whatever Singer did (Donner impression) is not good for the character. Otherwise it would've made the money it should've.

Singer is not good for the character, and neither is a Silver Age Pre-Crisis Superman. This is becoming very apparent at the box office.

and yet silver age pre crisis superman, the one seen in STM, is still remembered as the most iconic version of the character....and yet, people still dont wanna touch post crisis....the same post crisis that was heavily retconned 20 years into its run.

fanboys are hypocrites. just as singer has a fetish with a 30 year old movie that dosent match a modern superman, some of you fans have a fetish with a superman that dosent match the character period.

Not true. BO doesn't equal quality.

X3 blew chunks, and it made money. I'd hardly say the story it had was good for the characters.

I like Singer...I just want him to READ a god damn COMIC book and quit depending on the Donner films which weren't all that freaking great in the first place. Gimme something new and original dont just rehash what has already been done.

The origin doesn't need to be retold. The character has been around for 70 years. His origin is apart of pop culture. Everyone knows it. Why do it yet again?

anyone with half a brain could see this movie was modern. just because it uses donner as a template does not make it outdated.

try harder

Singer was in way over his head and it showed. The best he could do is a rehash of an outdated film with todays visual effects, and throw in this great twist of Superman having a son. Now we're stuck with that unless there's a relaunch which, sadly is unlikely because Singer is tapped to do the sequel and his flunkies are tapped to write it.

Superman deserves better than Singer, and the fans do, too.

yes, because Every super fan wants post crisis drivel where lex acts like a kingpin ripoff, clark kent and superman act exactly the same destroying siegel and shusters idea of the kent character, have clark and lois in a relationship which destroys the purpose of the clark/superman/lois love triangle, and have a superman who dosent care one iota about his heritage.

I'd say it set Superman back. It basically stuck him in the Donner era and kept the whole Silver Age thing. About the only thing original Singer and his chump writing team did was add the son, and that was probably the worst thing they could have done.

Singer will likely direct the sequel, but Singer can't do action. This film was basically Supermagnolias with Superman and Superson.

We're already invested with Singer. Either he directs the sequel, or we don't get one at all. That's the way I see it.

Btw....we ALL KNEW he didn't read the comics. That was a topic of debate HERE for many Superman fans. So, don't pull this **** that all of a sudden we didn't know that he didn't read Superman books. C'mon.

oh...so it didnt really make superman outdated at all. Again, you people are just whining that he based it on donners superman. for a minute there, i thought you guys had an actual arguement, but it all just adds up to "I wanted post crisis".

I'm with you, I don't really see how it sets Superman back 30 years.

it dosent. people are just whining cause its not based heavily on post crisis. one wonders if they've actually seen the movie.

They complain about singer basing his supes on a version outdated thirty years, when they want a version of supes outdated by twenty. Either way, both donner and post crisis arent what a superman movie needs.

I think NO. I love Brian Singer,,,I liked what he did wit the Usual Suspects and The X Movies, but IMO, I believe he took the wrong route wit SR. I mean, it was a cool movie, but the story was mad lame, and he was way off wit this one.

So, just to argue, what the **** happens now?

If he doesn't direct...what happens? Do we wait another 20 years for another film? Do we try and continue this story with another director (who doesn't have a plan), do we get a restart? Do we re-cast the roles? Do we wait a couple year for it? Explain what happens IF he doesn't direct, because I'd like to know.

I sure as hell hope he directs the sequel. I gave SR a 9.5/10. And just for reference, I gave Batman Begins a 9.5/10 and Superman The Movie a 8.5/10.

I'd say Batman Begins is a 20/10. And SR a 10/10. I enjoyed them that much.
