Let's be real. MOS has a much tougher road in front of it. 220 is the max I can see for a sequel.

If it wasn't for my personal belief in the character of Superman's popularity, I'd agree that it wouldn't be financially worth it to risk a sequel dispite my love of SR.

And Marvel shafted Hulk ( not that I think the character is that popular in the first place) in the rear in favor of Iron Man. We didn't even get a trailer until like March. Hulk's shortcomings is Marvel's fault alone.

I don't know. It depends by the marketing. I doubt that at WB someone thinks that Superman doesn't deserve anymore any credit.

The thing is I see them talking more about GL, Wonder Woman, Flash and Captain Marvel and Justice League and Green Arrow then Superman and Batman. I mean Superman and Batman are already established however I do think they might have DC come in and give their input on how to better both those two heroes but I see DC being more hands on with their other properties and becoming more hands on with the thrid Batman movie and thrid Superman movie (I say third Superman movie because they are now doing casting for Man Of Steel which means the script is down and everything is moving forward on it).

I've read numerous posts over the last couple of years that wished for W.B. to do this. Mine included.

I was more along the lines of: this should have already been in their heads around 2000. Why a decade late? Moreover, did this stuff really need a meeting. They could have had any number of comicbookfilm nerds hammer out an outline for them.

Why on Earth would DC become more hands on with the third Batman movie? That franchise is gold right now and Nolan knows what he is doing unlike Singer with the Superman franchise. TDK is looking to be an absolute juggernaut both critically and at the BO. Nolan already has Goyer and perhaps he will bring in another consultant in the same capacity he did with Jerry Robinson but outside of that, there is no reason whatsoever to even think about tinkering with Nolan's franchise. If it aint broke, don't fix it. Singer's Superman needs the added DC help, not Nolan's Batman.

I say Nolan's Batman because at the same time you need to look into the future when Nolan leaves and how to sync up his Batman with the rest of the DCU right now you can sync it up with Singer's Superman barely but in order to do it with the rest of the DCU DC might need to get more involed. Also Singer's Superman movies wasn't that bad and in need of that much help really. You know if Man of Steel turns out to be this huge box office hit still following off of Singer's theme I have a funny feeling people's tune will change about Superman Returns and Singer just like how it did with X-Men. I mean with the first X-Men movie people had their doubts about Singer been when the second movie came out and you saw how both linked up people changed their tune real quick and I have a feeling the same will be said with this series.

I'm sure it will all be thrown around, should be interesting.

I'm not sure why Variety not mentioning it is interesting, if WB doesn't mention it at the meetings, then that is interesting.

Yeah.. Maybe the DC staff can pull the Hollywood suits out of the 1930's. It's almost like Hollywood thinks the characters haven't changed with the times.

To me this would be a good way to tie in MOS in 2010 and Nolans 3rd Bat film in hopefully 2011.

There are ways. Instead of thinking there is no way...try and find a way.

You use Bales Batman as more the detective and investigator who is doing more of the mysterious behind the scenes work in the JL film. For instance at the ending of the 3rd Nolan Bat trilogy in 2011...Gordon can say something to Batman that he heard a certain reporter from Metropolis named Clark Kent would like to interview Bruce Wayne. Bam....the the general movie audience and fans would love it! Then in the beginning of the JL film in 2012....the filmmakers can already establish from that "interview" they figured out eachothers identities and that was Supermans way to reach out to Batman for help against a "large" threat to Earth (perhaps Darkseid or the White Martians) that was insinuated at the end of MOS.

Get it?

It's interesting indeed, but my experience tells me that when Variety talks about something, we don't have to read between the lines. I remember when they wrote that the flight scene of the Iron Man trailer wouldn't have been in the movie. There was a mega debate about why Iron Man doesn't fly in the movie. LOL

In the article Superman isn't mentioned, but there isn't even a bad word about Superman Returns. Using the logic if at WB they want to plan a strategy for their sh franchises, it's a sure bet that Superman will be part of it.

It would be a little strange for WB to bring back the Smallville JL for next season with Tom Welling and then have a Justice League on screen with different actors and Tom Welling. I don't need Ms Cleo to tell me that.

it could still be done, its not like there going into production right now! and there would be some continuity and familiarity! Many people didnt see Superman returns because they thought Routh's acting was wooden and monotone, and wanted Welling for Supes!!

so those people didnt like Brandons acting in the trailer? because if they didnt see the movie then they couldnt know how brandon was. so they didnt like the whole movie based on a 2 minute trailer.

Could be done, but won't be done. It isn't in the cards right now.

The people that didn't see Superman Returns (in theaters) didn't see it because it didn't particularly interest them. It had nothing to do with Brandon Routh's acting ability.
