Ah, now I get it. Singer's Superman wasn't dark enough.

Good news for the ones of us that like Superman's other side.
So you like that the Superman franchise has been derailed?

Also if SR was such a great movie, why has the Superman franchise been derailed then?

-august dark TDK is breaking records.
-you can bet your ass that superman will be dark. because this is how WB works for years.
Going dark is one thing. Going overboard with the 'darkness' aspect is quite another. And if that's the case, then I both aniticpate, and at the same time, dread the net reaction to a script review (considering if history repeats itself here) of a first draft.

And as I previously mentioned, the last thing I want to see happen is for this new development to find itself on a slippery slide down to Otisburg, but this is WB we're talking about.

Needless to say, that's not too far fetched.


Should be interesting to see play out.

The only way I can interpret ''Reintroducing Superman" is a reboot.

I still dont see how SR failing is a fact, plenty of classic movies never got a sequel to them, The Thing immediatly springs to mind.

A reboot will never have the impact of Donner's original film.

Donner nailed it so perfectly...there's no way in hell anything else can measure up. I mean Jon Peters was trying to push for a "darker reboot" for years and from what has been seen from all that development (concept art, etc.) looked horrible.

There was never a problem with the Donnerverse in terms of design, story, characterization.

The only fundamental flaw that it had was the lack of rogues from the comics aside from Lex and Zod.

Throw Brainiac, Metallo or Bizarro into the Donnerverse and it would be incredible.

But a reboot?

There's a sense of grandeur and pathos in the Donnerverse, and all of that would be gone. The tongue n' cheek charisma and charm would be gone.

And on a more superficial level, no John Williams theme...which IS Superman's theme.

It might have been roughed up over the years, but Donner's vision is hardly broken...and thusly it doesn't have to be fixed. Just polished and expanded upon.

"Superman Returns" polished it up for a new generation, and a 2nd Bryan Singer film could've very well expanded on it since "Returns" didn't do that.

Why are you being close minded though, what if WB delivers the best Superman movie ever made? You wouldn't like it if Routh and Singer weren't involved?

Is there any possibility that we're taking "reintroduce" just a little too literally?

Similar in tone to the Dark Night? The heck? Just don't make it boring and re-hash old stories from the Donner Movies and we're good to go.

I'd be completely satisfied with a Movie version of TAS Superman. The tone of the world and attitude of the characters are just right.

Reintroduce means reboot IMO. I mean technically it doesn't mean exactly that but when you say reintroduce it certainly doesn't give off a sequel vibe in any way shape or form... meaning Routh is out.

Reintroduce seems like they are introducing a different Superman to me as well, I'm sure this will spark more comments from WB and from webmasters and maybe even Singer's camp. So we'll know the truth and it will be cleared up soon.

Good news is there will be another Superman movie coming down the pipeline very soon. I hope we can now join together as Superman fans again either way...

I'm taking "reintroduce" as reboot, but I hope I am wrong. I guess they could mean revamp, but it doesn't sound good to me. Especially considering they wanna go "dark" with it, ugh! Hell why does he wanna go dark with all their characters? I mean not every comic needs to have a dark nature about it!

Showtime, I thought Robinov was one of the folks behind a sequel???

Anything is possible my friend, anything.

The good thing is that Hollywood Reporter, Variety, and LA Times will jump on this story and dig into it. We will then learn more.

Also, websites like Latino Review, Dark Horizons, Moviehole, ScreenRant, Superherohype, Bluetights, IESB, AICN, CHUD, and other websites will throw their two cents in.

It is going to be an explosion of news...

I agree. I mean even if it's just a revamp, with routh and spacey, thats not reintroducing Superman. The public will already know that version of him.
No, to me, reintroducing means reboot.

That said, he picked his words poorly if Singer, Routh, and Spacey are coming back.

Well he was the one who Dan Lin convinced Justice League was the way to go, I think Mr. Robinov is about giving fans the best Superman movie possible while allowing for a huge profit from WB...

If it is a reboot, he should have just said reboot, doesn't he understand that we pick apart every word and debate about it!
