With the casting of Kal Penn as lead henchman for Lex as well as all the other amazing cast of Jor-El, Lora, John, Zod, it looks like this will officially be Superman 3

Unlike Batman Begins, Superman Returns is starting to look like what a Superman 3 would have been if Donner directed it.

Are you happy with the way Singer is taking the franchise so far, as what they say "a continuation of the Superman series and Smallville combined?
Express your opinions.

**UPDATE**
all the cast above except Kal Penn's are debunked.
 
We don't even know if this widescale casting is true.:o
 
It can't be a Superman 3 considering the Kryptonian villains won't even be referenced or maybe not exist in this story. That alone kills this movie being a Superman 3 and more like using the first two films as vague history.
 
I feel the same about Singer as I did when he was announced. He's f**kin awesome.

true, but they did say they will uses Supes 1 & 2, and start after that. So, is this like a Superman 3 film? Because 3 & 4 are forgettable. It's just that i see Singer picking crubs or Donner's vision and not using his own. Why o why is Penn (Kumar) casted as a Henchman, was Otis a henchman?

No, it's like a Superman film that will incorporate some elements from the past two films into a vague history so an origin story won't have to be told.

i just hope so man

than again, i'm actually fine with the casting of all those characters, but Singer choosing to cast an Otis type of character is alittle ifffy. Singer isn't quite being orginal, especially getting his old buddies like Jean Grey to play birthmother to Kal-El
 
We can't say how this affects our view of Singer yet cos we don't know if its true.

Who said the guy was an Otis type? Singer doesn't seem like the type of person to do camp.

Next, that new scoop isn't confirmed. And Singer not original? How many directors have brought on actors that they've worked with? Did anyone moan about Keaton getting the Batman role because Burton worked with him previously in Beetlejuice? Or how about Raimi casting his brother as Jameson's assistant? Or about Raimi casting Campbell not only in the Hercules/Xena series, but in cameos in both Spider-Man films. Not to mention Scorese bringing on actors he's worked with for new movies, or even the same role. I swear Joe Pesci plays nearly the same character in both Goodfellas and Casino, and both films were directed by Scorese.

I'm not entirely sure it's not an origin. I actually think Singer is doing a "pleasing everybody" film. Superman is out for 6 years and it could happen that Clark is also out for those 6 years thus when he returns he'd have to re-establish his relationship with all the characters and that could be seen like a semi-origin. But at the same time it's in a world where Superman already existed and that could make it as a kind of semi-sequel.
 
i still don't know. a part of me is upset about him c**k-blocking x-3, but another part of me is happy that he got superman instead of mcg and abrams.

so... General Zod being the movie does not reference the kyptonian villains?
 
Singer lacks in many departments as a director. First of all he's not very good when it comes to casting actors for specific roles. Second, he doesn't know how to budget a film which is why alot of films tend to look low budget. Third, he doesn't have the vision or skills to direct a scifi fantasy/action film. It's simply not where his strengths lie as a director. Which is why he should really turn down future projects like this. You don't see John Carpenter stepping over to comedy do you?
 
Maybe this film will be a restart but will be more like B'89 in terms of having an established Superman. If this is the case we can always have our orign film someday (wishful thinking I know). But if this is the way Singer is doing it, I'm all for it

You know, as long as I've known on these boards, you've brought nothing but negativity. Can you say anything positive?
