I get you but I still don't get how thinking that Spider-Man would make 300mil is far fetched, even with StarWars coming out. It was a bit of surprise but not as surprising as second teir Iron Man making 300mil IMHO. But i'll concide that 400mil was a surprise.

IMO the reason why the general audience fell in love with the character was because the movie had the same spirit and elements of the comic that made comic book fans fell in love with the character and made it such a hit. Something SR was very much lacking.

In fact by comparision the comics are more mature and less caricaturesque than the movies (at least 1 and 3). And caricatures are easier to get and enjoy therefore not many people would complain.

I know I'm late commenting on this, but I didn't find out about this recently until I became curious to see what was going on with a sequel to SR. That said, I'm a bit surprised that Dougherty and Harris wanted to use Darkseid as a villain. I've always gotten the sense that Brainiac and possibly Bizarro were going to appear as the villains in MOS.

I for one am happy about this. I want to see this movie badly. It is right up my alley. That being said, I am wondering if Singer is partly responsible for helping this back into WB, since he is still working with them or is production company is (Bad Hat Harry). Bad Hat Harry is also attached to Trick R Treat along with Legendary.

It's interesting considering Trick R Treat was in fact dropped by WB (despite being fully finished) and Legendary was left looking for someone else willing to take it.

I don't doubt Singer played a big hand in this act. And one wonders just how much clout he has at the studio at the moment.

Yes, he's lining up producing gigs with WB. But simply that wouldn't be able to get the studio to take the film back...unless the sequel is moving forward.

Just some food for thought...

Does make you wonder...unfortunately that's all we've been able to do at this point.

UPDATE: Trick 'r Treat NOT Back With Warner Bros!

**UPDATE: All right, we just got 100% confirmation from Warner Bros that they will NOT be releasing Trick 'r Treat. So I guess it's back to square one as the film looks for distro... it was fun while it lasted, though, wasn't it? **

I don’t want anyone getting too excited until we get something 100% official from Warner Bros, but a source very close to Michael Dougherty’s Trick ‘r Treat just dropped us a line with a look at the brand-new poster for the film!

I know it doesn’t look much different than the one you’ve been seeing for over a year now, but it is. The original had a release date on it, a release we all know never happened, and didn’t feature a cool little poem on it like this one does.

Most importantly, it didn’t have a link to an official Trick ‘r Treat site, which if you hit up, for now, will take you to Warner Bros. main page. So at least we know it’s definitely back in their hands! Now we just have to make sure they actually get it in theaters!

You’ll have more as soon as we do; for now, enjoy the new poster!

Interesting indeed...

Good God, will someone just release this movie already for this year!!! You have all of September to get the advertisements and prints ready.

Call up RKO. Aren't they back in business. Release this instead of doing a remake of the awesome Cat People!!!

Execute is a little to much but I do think they get of lightly compared to Singer, People tend to forget these two had a hand in Supermans demise as much as Singer.

I have a feeling that WB black balled Dougherty after SR didn't do what studios expected and had a fall out and that's why Trick R' Treat has been in limbo.

Trick 'R Treat was filmed way after SR debuted, so I doubt the box office had anything to do with it. I think they're mad because Dougherty didn't sign for MOS and jerked around his directorial baby as punishment.
