    That was I thinking too. When I saw the design of Metropolis there, it made me say "Singer must've taken that from Ratner's design". Just like Ratner taking Singer's X-Men. :D :D

    And great find, Retroman. We could always use a little help from SHH's own Sherlock Holmes. ;)

    Oh, I hate the "S" on his design btw. I mean red & blue? Where the hell is the yellow color on the "S"?? Never remove the yellow from the "S". Red/yellow "S" is too iconic to change IMHO. :oldrazz:

    We would have actually had Lexcorp though.

    Ratner is a hack but it couldn't have been worse than what we got. Singer is a good director when he understands what he is making. We don't know what Rats take would have been. Plus, he might have been working from a script from writers who knew who Superman was.

    Alas we'll never know. Rat dropped out and freakin' McG couldn't fly on a plane so we all get Singerman instead. I'm not saying Rat or McG's would have been any better, but I doubt they would have been worse, and we might have actually seen some action in get this, a superhero film.

    Thanks for sharing, Retroman.

    I am always interested in any info on failed superhero projects, especially those pertaining to Superman. :up:

    This is really cool but I can definately tell the similarities to Singer's Superman and this. I hope Ratner's Superman costume design gets released soon because we never had a great description of the suit he was going to go with.

    No problem guys!:yay:
    It does look a lot like the Metropolis in SR except the fact that there's LexCorp.
    Even better...theres test footage of it.

    Damn.. For some reason I've been getting addicted to the failed Superman projects :csad:

    I wonder how Ratner would have done, that city looks pretty good and the papers look sweet aswell, I can only imagine what we may have gotten.

    None of this stuff is new, but since it belongs to the Ratner/ McG movie, I thought it would be good to post here.

    Kal-El's evil cousin and one of the villains in Abrams' script. His father and Jor-El were at odds in a civil war on Krypton, which was the reason Jor-El sent his son to Earth. Ty-Zor is eventually sent to Earth by his father, to find Superman and kill him.

    I think WB should revisit Ratner/ McG's Superman, I liked Superman Returns, but I don't want another Donner tribute film.
