Bryan Singer will be stepping back into the superhero world by producing Capeshooters, a story that follows two down-on-their-luck slackers who specialize in shooting videos of superheroes. They find themselves on the run when they uncover evidence that a legendary superhero actually is evil. The story is based on an upcoming graphic novel by Rob Liefeld, who was one of the founders of Image Comics and at one point one of the hottest artists in the comics arena.
Bryan Singer is probably one of the men responsible for the success of recent comic book movies, having launched the whole superhero craze with X-Men in 2000. This paved the way for Spiderman, Batman Begins, Fantastic Four, Iron Man and all the rest that are on the way and have been.
This news still doesn’t shed any light on whether he will be back to direct the Superman Returns sequel. Recent rumours suggest that there could be a revamp, although nothing has been confirmed yet. I suppose it is possible he could produce Capeshooters and direct the Superman sequel at the same time if needed.
