I don't think we dodged a bullet. The project was in development hell for so long that it would never have gotten off the ground. From what I can tell just because there seemed to be so many disagreements about the direction they wanted to go in. It wasn't until Singer came aboard and pitched a very clear plot that things finally started to move.

Yeah, I honestly don't think there is anyway that would have not been a disaster.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Well to be fair, I have a feeling the final Burton movie would have been a bit less wacky than what we're seeing here. Anytime you look at the pre-production phase for ANY scifi/fantasy movie, there's a lot of crazy, experimental designs being thrown around. Especially when it comes to costumes.

Well, I was going mainly by the cast. I mean, Chris Rock as Jimmy Olson? Really? And it's not a race thing, I wouldn't have a problem with a Black Jimmy, I just don't see Chris Rock as the Jimmy Olson type.

I like Nic Cage. I like Tim Burton. But Cage is never Superman in a million years.

Yeah, that too. Honesly, I could see Cage as Luthor, but never Supes himself.

The original chatter was of Cage as Luthor and Due South star Paul Gross as Superman. Then all of a sudden, Cage - who a few months earlier had been linked to the role of Iron Man (this was long, long before RDJ etc) - was supposed to be Superman. A watching world went 'WTF?'

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Paul Gross would have been a very interesting "Superman". He kind of played a Clark Kent type character in "Due South". He has the look. I have never heard this story before, I'd always been under the impression that Cage was attached right from the start of Burton's involvement. Also didn't know that he was attached or rumoured for "Iron Man". I'd always read that Tom Cruise was attached. Either way I'm glad that we've never got a Burton "Superman". I've read most of the multiple drafts they attempted for the film and the only one that I would be remotely interested in seeing was the Kevin Smith draft. I thought all the rest were awful.
