    That comes from the latest SFX article.

    So at the very beginning, he counted it... now he doesn't?

    That settles it, if so. The kid can't be Clark's, as Lois and he never had sex.

    Odd....I wonder why he would say that when he cleary said in the start of filming SR took elements from S2. I'm still sticking to what he said not by this article.

    Without an on-screen catalyst, I doubt the kid is his, I don't think Singer'd make reference to something we hadn't seen, at least, not of that magnitude.

    I apoligize, I hadn't seen a thread with a title making it obvious this topic was contained therein.

    Sometimes Singer's words sounds strange for me.

    Anyway, I'm now confident that the kid ain't his. Not that I think Singer'd be dumb enough to do something that terrible in the first place. He treats Superman better than he does X-Men.

    I really doubt this news. It contradicts many interviews.

    I love how he recognizes that SUPERMAN II wasn't that good.

    "Vague history" just means this:

    Clark Kent grew up in Smallville
    His father died, and he left home
    He learned who he was via Jor-El
    He worked at the Daily Planet
    He became Superman
    He fell in love with Lois Lane
    He battled Lex Luthor

    It could even be applied to the comic book mythos.

    That had been posted here before. Which means the whole sex between Clark and Lois thing is left in the open.

    You do realise that the "evidence" is on a forum with one reply ?

    I simply do not believe it. singer has said all along and it is well documented that 1&2 are in this film's history and to disregard 3 & 4.

    I can't believe that after all this time, you are actually believing this BS ?!

    wtf singer. Just Scrap this vague history stuff and Do everything from a new continuity like Smallville. It worked pretty well for that show, people like it, so I don't see why this has to be in any way linked to the old movies except some design choices.... ****

    ....it'll probably be a great memorable movie anyway that people will love and all that, but this is confusing me now how it stands in the continuity with the old flicks partially. I've never heard of this ever being done before.

    Singer just needed a version of superman (there are many many versions) to use as his foundation. He proabably figured usisng the movie version was the best since that is how superman is most widely known. Even smallville had their fortress of solitude look like the one form superman the movie.
    It doesn't mean he needs to directly reference individual events of the original movies. The more intereviews i read the more i think this isn't really a sequel, just an original story that already has superman existing. It is probably why there is no reference to the supervillians in the movie.

    This doesn't necessarily mean the kid is not supermans...Singer can allude to the fact that they slept togehter before he left since they were in love....i really have no idea on that point. Kinda like how you accept star wars (in 1977) without seeing the pre-quels becasue lucas alluded to the events......(which 30 years later we did finally see).
