SUPERMAN

Would people(meaning you) be ok with the next Superman movie just being called...SUPERMAN?

From what I am hearing it will be a reboot...why not do the STAR TREK 2009 thing and just call it SUPERMAN.

Re: SUPERMAN

For some reason Batman Begins didn't sit well with me...it was a reboot and not a prequel...right???

[edit] That film should have been just been called "BATMAN".

Re: SUPERMAN

i get so confused these days on what's a reboot, what's a prequel, what's a sequel, etc.... they should make these things much more clear

Re: SUPERMAN

I say go for it.

If in a couple of years I tell someone I'm going to see Superman tomorrow night and they say "But that came out 30 years ago!" I'll punch them in the neck.

It also beats any of those stupid title that start with RE- and always sound so melodramatic, like Rebirth, Resurrection or Redemption. Those sound like something for CineMax at 3AM.

Re: SUPERMAN

Superman would be just fine as the title. In fact it would be the first Superman feature film ever to use the title (and the first big screen Superman adventure since the 1948 film serial to use it).

Actually just "Man Of Steel" would be better than Superman Man Of Steel or Unleased...dumb stuff like that.

I actually preferred The Dark Night over Batman Begins as a title.

Then let's save Man of Steel for the sequel just like Batman did!

Re: SUPERMAN

Just calling it SUPERMAN is too complicated. How about something simple, like:

SUPERMAN THE LAST SON OF KRYPTON THE MAN OF STEEL KAL-EL CLARK KENT?

Covers everything that way.

"Superman" (1978) is an official title, at least according to IMDb. It's also what was displayed in the opening credits.

"Superman--The Movie" was only for advertising purposes.

It's branded as Superman - The Movie in all of its home entertainment releases. That title has solidified as its official title, even if it was only initially meant to be used for advertising purposes. You're right, though, that the opening credits just say Superman.

I don't care what it's called if it's a good movie.

Re: SUPERMAN

I don't know. Star Trek worked because there was no movie of that name before without the sub-titles. I'd imagine that since Superman-The Movie is still a bit entrenched in everyone's minds that they'd have to add a sub-title to a new flick.

I just hope they don't waste time with an origin story. If you don't know that Supes came from Krypton, becomes Clark Kent etc. then you should go see the new Sandra Bullock movie instead.
