Some chick at Variety last week wrote a blog post on the status of the next Superman movie:
Speaking of DC Comics pics, it is highly unlikely that Bryan Singer will return to shoot the next Superman movie. (The director is finishing up Tom Cruise’s Nazi film Valkyrie, and prepping The Mayor of Castro Street).
Now her and others are speculating that the next Superman will be a total reboot without any of the cast or crew from the last one. From /film:
So it sounds to me like Routh might also be out as Superman, which is a shame considering he didn’t do a bad job… And while I love Singer, and wish he would return for Man of Steel, I must admit it’s a smart move by the Warner execs to cast a new Superman for Justice League. They’re planning for a franchise. They want a young star who can take on a trilogy or two.
Okay, I know no one wants to say it, but Superman is a lame superhero. He’s either completely invincible in the absence of kryptonite, or totally average in its presence. Plus, he’s kind of a teetotalling, do-gooder pussy. And he’s always totally vag-whipped over some chick, but won’t use his powers to win her over. How am I supposed to live vicariously through a guy who refuses to strong arm chicks and beat people up? Anyway, you know it’s a slow news day when I’m bitching about Superman.
