Variety’s Anne Thompson reports that Superman: Man of Steel, sequel to Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns, is still not moving forward at Warner Bros.
Fans have been clamoring all over the web–and on this blog–for a complete reboot. And within the halls of Warner Bros. the same debate rages on. They too believe that the last movie didn’t break the mold and wound up in some kind of middle limbo. Today I was told that it is a priority at the studio to find the right direction and if Bryan Singer is willing to do that, fine, but if he gets in the way, he may not stay on the project. There are no writers working on a Superman script now. The studio wants to figure it out. “It might be better to start from scratch,” one exec admitted.
Do Warner Bros. ditch Bryan Singer and go with a director who will take Superman in a different direction? Or do they do a ‘Hulk‘ and pretend Superman Returns didn’t happen, eventually setting up a reboot?
Personally I couldn’t give a damn, but what do the fans think?
