Question Reporters...Interviewers... Can they start asking the right questions???

?????????








???????????










??????????







Not everyone will think I'm on point with this but I feel strongly enough to debate if I must.

I am getting tired of the same old questions that get asked. Rather than just asking "Will there be a sequel?" can they bother to get fans views into the questions? All I see is a$$ kissing going on during interviews. "Oh hey Bryan, we love SR it's flawless no matter what anyone says. Is the sequel going to be started on soon?" A question like that does not get anything across nor does it leave an opening for a valid answer. Why not try getting into more specifics? Such as "Fans weren't happy with Lex doing a real estate scheme again. Are you open to setting up Lexcorp for the sequel?" or "Fans seemed to feel SR lacked a physically threatening villain. Do you think bringing in Brainiac and Metallo will satisfy the majority of the fanbase?"

Not saying my questions are perfect but God knows I'm sick of how questions are asked in regards to MOS, and what questions are being asked that leave the opening for a standard answer. Get the majority view out there WHILE asking the question at least. Stop puckering up to the booty

I like SR. I'm not a reporter but my view as a reporter would be that it's not my job to like what I'm reporting about, so asking the right questions, and asking those questions in the RIGHT way is the key to a good interview.

I assume only fanboys would ask such detailed questions. The typical tv interviewer knows zero to nothing about the projects or even the people they're talking to but what they get told by their station beforehand.
They also usually ask these vague questions 'cause Average Joe viewers wouldn't understand it anyway. Those interviews are more like cheap publicity to get the word out on a project. No details needed.

I was actually thinking of iesb and moviehole type reporters as well. Heck even the big Superman fan site reporters. Yeah they love and want to support the character but I'm not liking the lack of depth to their questioning.

Yeah, if you run into Brandon or Bryan, you go ahead and tell them their movie sucked and then see if you get any answers to your questions.

Let us know how that goes.

I agree that reporters are not asking the right questions; but the problem is that they don't know what questions to ask because all information in regards to the sequel has been...well..."vague".

Where did you get that from my post? I like SR. I only say it's worth asking relevant questions even if you get a "no comment" answer simply to get more of the fan's opinions across. You never know, someone might slip something out if even just a hint. Of course you didn't want a civil answer, you wanted me to respond back in the same manner to you. Sorry to fail that sir

Your whole original post is about pointing out the flaws in SR in order to get info about the sequel. Interviewers never start an interview by saying, "This, this, and this sucked, now how are you gonna fix it?" I'm not saying that we can't discuss the movie's flaws, but the truth of the matter is that bringing those flaws up to those involved in the project in order to get info out of them is just plain stupid.

WB is one of the problems here. I'm pretty sure that if you were to do an interview over SRII, that irregardless of what wants to be asked, only questions that involve a 'positive' answer will allowed to be asked etc.

It's just the nature of the evil capitalist publicist

The fact that this is going on is an indication that there is a dislike for the film:

"Oh hey Bryan, we love SR it's flawless no matter what anyone says. Is the sequel going to be started on soon?"

There is no reason to say that unless there is a pre-existing large general consensus out there.

Well the non-news will most likely continue, if they aren't doing anything with DK at Comic-Con certainly there won't be much news on the Returns sequel. Foiled again.

Well Nolan is that way. His is quoted as saying when some reporter mentioned the tight lipped-ness on this film that he is doing that so that people will find out the plot of the film by watching it. Whereas the WB isn't saying anything on SR.

They probably are asking the right questions and just not getting answers. I mean, of course they aren't going to turn in stories that say "Called WB for 65th time today. Still no answers."

And I have a feeling if they have cancelled it, the WB wants to announce it themselves through their prefferred channels.

They have shown parts of interviews where they get no comments on iesb for example before. The questions we want to know about simply aren't being asked.

I completely agree with you Jc. They do ask the same damn questions all the time, and places like IESB do everything short of shining Singer or Routh's shoes anytime they talk to them, and never do anything that even remotely challenges them.

Maybe we should get the guy from the Singerman blog to interview them? If nothing else it would at least be entertaining.
