    Why do people keep picking Abrams? He's totally unproven and hell, as a WRITER he's not all that special. What about this guy, creatively, is making anyone think he should be a top 5 choice for a Superman movie?

    That's what i mean, take the Island for example. It was great visually but the plot and story just didn't lead anywhere.

    I didn't say that I thought that FF was a bad movie:confused:

    And I always said that there were good things in the X-films.

    Is it just me or do Michael Bay's movies just play out like a two-hour movie trailer?

    Now there's a unique one.:) :up: I'd like to see him do a sequel, but this is just mere speculation.

    WB is funding Singer's latest project "Logan's Run" and they've allegedly already started negotiations for his return to the franchise.:o

    about the island. damn right he needs better writters. but the island was a fun movie. a fun movie. it was not bad imo. there were also some great visuals.
     
  14. I totally agree I always kept thinking, now if that was superman it would be great too. but maybe without all the slo-mo wire tricks. Because quite frankly that wouldnt do :supes: any justice.

    Nah, because he'll just run roughshod over them like he ran roughshod over his other writers. There's a reason he keeps picking the scripts he picks. If he wanted better scripts, he'd choose them. He doesn't. He wants scripts you can easily drown out with director tricks.

    if he got a good script he'd just crap all over it.

    Michael Mann, Chris Columbus, Alfonso Cuaron, Steven Soderbergh.

    If Singer didn't return, I'd like to see James Cameron take over because he really wanted to do Spider-Man. I remember reading an interview once where he said before he is done writing/directing films he wanted to do a superhero movie but I don't know if it was Sony or WB or what but whoever was looking at his script, they denied him because they thought it was a bit too "dark" and look how Spider-Man 3 might turn out.

    But he's a good director. My second choice(s) would be either Roland Emmerich (Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow) or Alex Proyas (I, Robot, Dark City, and soon to be remake of Robocop.)

    Emmerich would be a good choice. I loved The Patriot. And Proyas would be great, too (even though I think he'd be better suited for Batman, seeing as he directed something more along those lines when he did The Crow). They're remaking Robocop! Hot damn.

    yea Proyas really wants to do a remake of Robocop and make it closely to the comics. Proyas' movies always have great imagery and interesting characters... he does make darker movies but maybe a sequel to SR could be his big 'light' movie. I don't like directors who just stick to one genre of films.

    My problem with Columbus is that he's a bit bland. I never feel emotionally connected to any of his films. He always came off like a poor man's Steven Spielberg to me. I'm a big fan of Cuaron and I'd love to see his take on Superman. I'd just be worried that he'd make the movie too dark. He could surprise me though. I love his direction for actors and his visual style.

    Now, Steven Soderbergh has been a major favorite since Sex, Lies. I'd love to see what he would do with a huge budget superhero film. Don't know if he'd be interested though.

    Michael Mann...I am not on his bandwagon. I like his films okay but none have ever blown me away. I'd take him over Ratner or Bay any day of the week though.

    Where did you get this information from? Was it a magazine interview? I'd love to read further on his ideas for a new Robocop movie.

    you'll have to google it. he actually claims to be influenced by Robocop and uses those influences in his sci-fi films.

    it was in a 2004 article he is putting it on the shelf for now last I heard until he comes up with a better script.

    Emmerich is another director that doesn't have one movie I like. He's simply a worse version of Bay. And The Patriot was one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Pure drivel. :down
