    Well there it is. From Variety. Pretty strange considering what has been reported the past couple days. Mine question still remains, who is playing Superman?

    Well its nice to hear its officially shooting for summer 09 release. I Hope though we get better people in the batman and superman roles. Well Yes hammer isnt right for bats with his young age, i was warming up to him. He has a good deep voice and would be an intimating bats at 6'5. I just hope DJ cotrona isnt supes in the end he is totally wrong for the role. Hopefully for supes role they see this(doubtful) and pick someone else..... welling....porter..... someone who looks more like the character.

    I would say it is between Porter and Controna at this point.

    So I guess this means that the next Superman sequel will be out in 2010. I hope so anyways.

    Well this is good news for me!!!

    If Hammer is Bats, I would say DJ is Sups.... Trust me I want this movie to happen, just not with those 2....

    Well if its only between DJ and porter i would take porter over dj. Both are not perfect for supes but porter would be a hell of alot better then a 5'9 hispanic decent superman if Hammer is indeed bats at 6'5. Not knocking dj, i never seen his work so i dont know how he is as an actor but for superman role he does not fit the bill.

    Seems as it's either Controna or Porter at this point. I know the Welling rumors are going to start back up again now though.

    Good news.

    I'm glad they're giving the movie a decent amount of time before the release date in '09.

    But I'm sure that one of the A list writers is bound to pitch a story idea that will make WB want to make another Superman sequel. There's so much potential with Brainiac, Doomsday, Mongul, Bizarro, Metallo, and even Darkseid.:csad:

    If they do move to Canada, I would not expect it to go away until they announce someone...

    They sure as heck might be pitching ideas, doesn't mean a movie is going to happen. I think JLA hurts the chances for MOS more than anything.

    Well that just sucks. WB can't just give up on Superman when they haven't even tried. Man oh man, Justice League better be the best superhero movie so far! It better not be cheesy at all!

    Yea JLA now is probably going to be the one going before superman. They have a script well getting rewritten, and due to studio again in a few weeks and if production stays in auzzie or even move to canada i dont see why any sets already built could not get shiped over. They are well ahead of MOS in many areas. Soo JLA has the better chance of going now then MOS cause it would take them a few months of pre production, getting cast back, recasting if needed, getting more cast, getting sets ready and i dont think singer is free if he was to stay with mos cause isnt he working on like 2 or 3 films currently.

    I look at it this way. If JL could happen when there is a Batman franchise still going, I see no reason why there can't be one with Sups.

    But it looks like we won't see Sups for a while though, if Singer/Routh is really gone. I do bet once JL is over, the 1st DC movie we will see post-JL is Superman.

    I think that JLA will destroy the chance for MOS, but we'll see.

    I just don't understand how JL will destroy the chance for MOS. Why not make another Superman sequel. It means more money. I hope they don't do a restart of the Superman franchise with the crappy actor that is cast as Superman in JL. I really don't want to see Superman's origin a third time. We saw it once in Superman 1 and in Smallville.

    Plus, this isn't anything new what Variety is reporting. Justice League has been officially set for a 2009 release date for months. Why is everyone treating this like it is actually going to come out next year? Besides, didn't George Miller say that this movie is uncertain?

    i don't think we'll see any origins of individual characters in the movie, especially supes, bats, and ww.

    Um, we didn't officially know when this movie was going to come out. We still don't have a release date, I mean it can be December of 09 for all we know....

    There is a chance that the JL Superman will go over so well that the actor will then continue as Superman in a subsequen spin off. It's a possibility. Thus no need for MOS. A Superman Returns Sequel doesn't necessarily mean more money.


    You haven't been following recently?
