I hope it's reliable, too.
At this point, I just can't see WB completely scrapping everything that went into Returns only to start again from scratch. Even if Singer doesn't return, I'd expect them to keep much of the design work and cast--especially Routh. Other rumors I've seen point to WB wanting to have a 'loose' sequel to SR, using the same cast but taking the story in more of a comic book oriented direction.
For the next film, changes in the art direction and production design could signal to the audience that it is not
another continuation of SR's "Donnerverse." This way, Singer can get away with retaining his actors while still
resetting Superman's universe. Fans who hate the kid will be placated. Fans who've warmed up to Routh (the vast majority of SR viewers, I'm sure) will also approve.
