We have heard some ideas about what Warner Bros may have planned for the Superman franchise, but nothing has been officially announced yet. We currently don’t know whether there will be a sequel to Superman Returns, or whether there will be a reboot. However, /film recently got directed to an interesting page on Legendary Pictures website:
/Film reader Alex L just sent me a link to a password protected page from the official Legendary Pictures website that lists “Superman Unleashed” as one of their upcoming films in development. The temporary plot synopsis included follows:
“Ramping up the action of its esteemed predecessor, the sequel to ‘Superman Returns’ promises to raise the stakes and take the audience to heights of action that no other superhero movie can achieve.”
So there you have it… Legendary Pictures, Warner Bros and DC are still working on a Superman Returns sequel, and not a complete reboot. The film will not be titled The Man of Steel, but instead Superman Unleashed.
One of my other sources claims that the title is just a working title and they are still hearing pitches from different writers.
It is interesting to note that since the page was discovered Legendary Pictures have removed the page from their website. Hmm…
