I really can't think that the WB are thinking to cancel the Superman franchise again.

Showtime029 where are your insiders? They could be useful now

JLA may not do Spidey numbers, but it's a safe bet for money in the bank. Those characters smashing up the screen for an hour and forty-five minutes is great. I mean look at Transformers. Bale for sure has the charisma and Routh has a sizeable fanbase. The trouble with JL is in spinning off the other three into profitable franchises.

I was not excited about the Teen Titans movie when I first heard about it. Hearing what is going on with the project has made me more excited, a gritty take on these younger heroes struggling with their identities. WB is obviously taking this project seriously and I don't see how it's the end of the DC Comics Franchises.

I don't know where you were during the pre-production on Returns but I was providing news before the major movie websites on the production. The new reports came from the same people I got info on previously, along with additional info from a second hand source. It is what it is.

I believe you Showtime, I want only to know if they can tell you some fresh rumor/news. What are the last rumors?

No news, no rumors, no nothing. That is what is disturbing. I am hearing nothing from WB's side and nothing from Singer's side at this point. Scary to me.

I just crawled under my blankets and turn on my nightlight until daybreak and we have confirmation of sequel or a scrapped project.

^we'll get confirmation soon, I'm sure of it...

Many's concerned because the first movie didn't do quite as well as Singer and Warner Bros had hoped for, that the next one will be a rather cheap flick! The studio was talking about a major cut-back for the sequel.... A cut-back, sure, but a cheap flick it WONT be!... The studio is willing to spend as much as 175mill on the sequel, and that's A LOT! It's more than enough.

Comparing Potter to a Superman Returns sequel is a poor analogy. Potter 6 is filming now, we know that. It's not Comic Con news like Iron Man or Hulk where we want a sneak peak. We already know what's it's about. We have all the books and 5 other films. No additional info is needed. We know the outcome and the direction of the next 2 films.

Superman Returns doesn't have a script or direction yet. It's in limbo because of the words of the studio head himself. If this happens, or if that happens is not a confirmation.

They have nothing to fear from H.P., its a proven franchise.
S.R. on the other hand was the first Superman film in 18 years.

Its also bad PR/marketing for WB.

We would have heard something by now if it was happening. It would have at least been highlighted on that guys list of possible upcoming DC films.

I think they may be contemplating on a new director, or maybe even doing a J.L. film instead.
If they do have plans on doing M.O.S., its certainly bad P.R. so far.

^ What's J.L???

They propably wont talk serious about the superman sequel, until comic-con 2008!... and by that time, they'll propably have a sneek-peak ready, just like they had with the first movie, for the people in the audience to drool over!... and I forsee that it'll be, among other things, a glimps of superman fighting whatever supervillain it may be!

A new director would be dumb. If the film is a continuation of SR; you cant change the tone of the first film and all the elements from it.

I don't think they're going to replace Singer.

^They're NOT.... I'll be most surprised if they do!... But Dan and Mike have already begun writing the screen-play, and those three are a team, so I seriously doubt that'll happen!... Work is beeing done on the sequel RIGHT NOW. this has been confirmed!

Yeah we know that. And plus, wasn't it reported that Singer spoke a bit about the SR sequel while filming his new movie Valkyrie?

I think the reason why we are not hearing anything now is because as Horn said they are waiting for a script of some kind to be handed in. They seemed to like the pitch enough to give Singer & crew the time to write something up in order for the WB to green light this movie

Wow... Superman Returns haters are an idiot and pathetic. PERIOD.

I loved, loved Superman Returns, and I'm definitely going to look forward for the next sequel. Let's hope it'll happens in 2009.

Seriously, be glad we finally got Superman in the big screen and DVD last year. It has been like what? Over 20 years. I'm so happy that there is gonna be a sequel soon.
