Of course this gives them a shot at doing a quasi reboot and removing some of the elements from SR that clouded the potential sequel.
honestly, I think he doesn't... IMO, they were holding him back, and the story suffered from it

if he doesn't like it, he can always go to another site... on one is forcing him to stay here.

For the 2 starting up the whole SR "haters vs lovers" stuff, stop it now, that is one sequel we DON'T need.

Why should he have to leave for another site?

Almost everyone across the web has the common knowledge that Superherohype is one of the busiest forum's. He shouldn't have to leave so the people he hates, more so disliking, can win.

Well, this is interesting news. But for those SR haters, why do you guys automatically assume that since Dougherty and Harris are out of the picture means that Singer is? Come on, when Singer worked on X-Men and X2 each of those had different writers, it doesn't mean he'll be out of the picture for the SR sequel.

It will be nice to have some fresh blood in for the sequel, provided it does take a different direction than SR does. Maybe something along the lines of the S:TAS, like with Brainiac or Metallo as the villains?

I'm not saying he has to leave... just that it's an option, and arguing about it isn't gonna solve anything

Christopher McQuarrie is the man and should definitely get his shot at Superman.

honestly, I don't prefer to see him in a story... too much of an action driven character, IMO

He'd be an interesting choice although his forte seems dark thriller as opposed to bright, action spectacle.

Superman isn't that bright of a character. He can be dark, and for the most part, he is/was.

What some of you are failing to realize is that Singer was calling the shots, even with the script. Mike and Dan would write and work on the script which in turn was either OKed or nixed by Singer.

^ Which is usually how it is.

Singer wants to tell his story. I don't blame him.

Yep. Which is why I hope if he does return he actually makes his own movie instead of trying to ride off someone elses. I think Singer could make an outstanding Superman movie if he just takes his own approach based on the comics.

Which is a shame. Fox won't let him finish his X-Men trilogy. WB and "some" fans don't want him to finish what he had in mind on Superman. I mean, didn't WB learn it's lesson with Donner all those years ago?

You would think they would've...

That's not the point, some who disliked the movie believe now that Mike and Dan have "volunteered to walk away", that a better some kind of deadweight was tossed aside. Not the case, it's Bryans story to tell.

Hmm. You're saying that Bryan fired them or at least told them to take a hike?

ok i have a big problem. SR had no action and no supervillain. so insted of taking the next stepp and doing brainiac they wanted to have darkseid? so they wanted to go from lifting planes and yachts to a BIG darkside?

nope.....i am sorry mr. singer but i disagree with you.

losing brandon routh is like losing C.bale IMO(today)

I am saying that if you were in the camp that disliked the movie, and you believe that Dan & Mike were the cause for the problems you have and now you think it will be different, the conductor of the orchestra was Bryan.
