Usually, WB usually gets a screenwriter to start writing a few months prior to the film's release in the case it's a hit. That way they can get moving on a sequel asap, and get production moving more quickly.
heck, I'm wondering why we haven't heard anything about Warner Bros. trying to get Terrific Trio: Snyder, Goyer, and Nolan, back on board for the sequel asap.

Probably because the film has not made any money yet.

It's been revealed that MOS is 2 hours and 28 mins (148 minutes) long; 5 minutes longer than Superman: The Movie, and 6 minutes shorter than Superman Returns. What do you guys think of the running time?

Where was it revealed? If true then I think that's pretty good.

WB probably isnt moving on a sequel just yet because They jumped the gun on Announcing a Green Lantern sequel and that has not happened yet,
So they are probably waiting until they have both a financial and critical success .
It is caution borne out of experience Not out of fear that they have another bomb on their hands.

Yeah, but did people value his opinion when he said he thought GL movie was just as good as Thor ?

Just to nitpick, Watchmen theatrical was 162 minutes.

I'd be pretty happy with 148 minutes as well, though.

That's an amazing runtime. I actually thought DKR and SR were too long.

I never read either review of those films but while GL short and underwhelming, I didn't think Thor was that great either. My problem with Thor was that he was very unlikable. We were suppose to cheer for him cause he was the hero I guess but I didn't buy into his coming of age story at all.

Yeah, Thor wasnt much better than GL imo. They were both pretty weak regardless of popularity and fanboyism.

How can you know and hope for the same thing? It's kinda like going to the convenience store and buying a Snickers bar and saying "I'm going to buy this Snickers bar, I hope it's not a Mounds!"

You either KNOW Krypton will look fantastic or you've got your fingers crossed and hoping for the best...

Hahaha...I hope you're right. I want everything to look as real as possible. I don't want to be able to tell the difference

Indeed screen presence. Reeve got it and made people believe in him so effortlessly. Cavill, not so sure. At least Iím not sold on him yet. I still think Routh has a better screen presence than him as the Man of Steel.

Routh did well in negative role the movie "Scott Pilgrim Vs the world", and his acting is improving. (IMO.) and I agree that he has better physical presence but Cavill has a bit more charismatic personality, whether this is reflected in MOS is a different matter.

Funny thing is that before the twist in Chuck, his character was pretty Supermany to me.

I remember SR got 100% possible reviews by critics right before the movie was released. we were so excited. however it was said that they were paid to write possible reviews.
then slowly the negative reviews kicked in. and we went to watch the movie...

hopefully MOS and Cavill can do superman justice.
