    IF Bryan Singer cannot direct Superman2, who do you want?

    I'd chose J.J. Abrams.

    1.hes a fantastic writer who knows superman inside and out. his script has fantastic drama and some very very impressive action scenes
    2. the sequel will hopeflly have physical villains, and even though his ty zor character and his origins were made up, they were great. hed be an instand classic villain, no doubt about. menacing and cool, and it was abrams sole creation.
    3. MI3 looks great. the action, style, fx, acting, and tone all look fantastic and im sure he could bring this to superman.
    4. budget control. MI3 as having runaway bidget problems until J.J. Abrams entered the picture.
    5. very respected name. "from the creator of LOST, ALIAS, AND MI3"

    ...hes my choice. whose yours?

    If MI3 bombs, he will not direct it.

    But I likes your thread :up:

    Personally, I think at this point in cinema history it's too big a responsibility for one director. I would like to see two people co-directing it to balance each other out. Obviously this can stifle creativity so they need to be two people who can work well together.

    I'd like to see how Speilberg would handle Superman. But I think Abrams would probaly do a really good job. As long as there's no suit in a can.

    I hope Singer will come back.

    But if he doesn't, I hope Ratner will NOT come back.

    I think J.J. Abrams isn't bad choice for Superman.

    Believe me, Spielberg don't want films like this.

    WB asked him for Superman or Harry Potter, and he didn't want it.

    And he is a great director, but Superman would be like WOTW with superhero.

    I'd be over the moon with Michael Mann, but slightly more realistically Zemeckis would catch the bright side of Superman.

    Sorry, but I have some questions.

    1. Did you read his script?
    2. I thought we will have Metallo or Brainiac in sequel, right?
    3. Did you see MI3? It can be disappointment also.

    P.S. I think WB will ask another new popular director, like it was with Singer.

    I reckon Ratner will want to be in there. But assuming it finds big success with SR I think more of the 'big wigs' (what a sad phrase) will stick their foot in the door. Big names such as Spielberg.

    If Singer doesn't come back, Ratner will ask WB to be director.

    But I think they will confirm that they find a new director before Ratner will ask them.

    if the movie is a succes than singer will direct the sequel.

    we get a new director only if singer doesnt wana do it.

    Brett Ratner. He seems to be combining everything Singer did right and fixing everything Singer did wrong on X-men...no reason he couldn't do that here.

    Alternativley...James Cameron, who is a fantastic sci-fi director. David Fincher...just because he's David Fincher. Or Peter Jackson who knows how to make epics.

    1. Director should make a really good movie for public.

    2. He should make it for fans too.

    3. He should make it to get more money :)
