Default The Official Justice League & World's Finest Thread

Things are shaky with this franchise. Its stands with dubious company as being the only super-hero film aside from Catwoman that, to my knowledge, failed to at least recoup its production cost from the domestic box. Even the much maligned Hulk managed to do that. You gotta know this is a big red flag to WB.

And, despite what some think, if Singer is given the pink slip there will be no sequel. Even Routh said at the DVD launch that Singer is the lynch-pin to a sequel happening.

THe studio is not going to try to find another director - as if any name director would even be interested in trying to fix Singer's mess and be burdened with the likley chance a sequel will do even worse than SR. SR had the advantage a sequel will not - despite the negative buzz folks were willing to somewhat turn out as this was the first Superman film in 20+ years. An SR sequel will not have that going for it.

WB canning Singer means a rejection of his vision - his casting choices, the writing, the kid, the FX. An acknowledgement of a failed product - does anyone think WB would be foolish enough to try to "fix" what can't be fixed?

The next month or two will see official word IMO that the MOS has been shleved. Actually, if WB is unable to confirm next week at ShoWest that a Superman film is on their 2009 schedule - even if they can't give a specific release date - then that will essentially confirm the scrapping in not so many words.

Remember, TDK got an official go at ShoWest Last year. The entertainment news has been a-buzz with Flash, WW and JLA for weeks now while no word, from WB, for months ob SR. Odd -0 the JLA is set for 2010 - after a potential SR sequel - yet WB is talking the later premmiering film up and being dead silent on Superman.

Until the JLA announcement I was solidly confident that, though we would not get an SR sequel, we'd get a reboot/relaunch of Superman in 15 or so years. IMO the JLA reduces the chances for that now.

If the JLA does well and if just a few characters spin-ff as huge successes and with Batman, WB simply does not need Superman anymore. Not lucrative for them. RT is reporting a TDK sequel is already in the works and with that anchos - between Batman and JLA WB could well have all it needs in terms of superhero franchises.

The franchise is in deep trouble. Its not a good time to be a Superman fan - espeically when longtime fans like Kevin Smith are saying its past time to kill off the Superman character.

I usually try to keep a good positive optimistic attitude when it comes to Superman, but this makes me want to cry.
