Having said that, I hope nothing bad happens to me between December 2012 and June 2013.

SR did pretty good business, nearly 400 million worldwide - and that, of course, is with no "3D premium." So it's not like competition somehow tanked the film. Problem was that it was much more expensive than most of these movies.

^ And they added on all the costs of the abortive Superman projects that came before it. Much like how Star Trek The Motion Picture got saddled for the costs of the previous Trek projects that never were.

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

^ Yeah the film absorbed the costs of the previous attempts made. I think fans tend to forget this fact when they look at "Superman Returns" budget and overall box office intake. They absorbed like a 100 million or something right off the bat (I can't remember the exact number but it was a huge amount)

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

^^^
It was about $70 million. Online punters and the entertainment press held those costs against the film. It wasn't clear that WB did, though. SR actually came pretty close to getting a sequel. If it had made another $50 million or so it almost certainly would have done.

I can't tell if he's completely and utterly distraught over his movie getting clobbered by Johnny Depp, or if he's just drunk. And I like Singer.

Feh. I've seen plenty of people ... articulate people get in that state of apoplexy before. Hell, I get that way at the checkout counter when there's a pretty girl flirting with me and my wife's just around the corner.

From everything I've seen of him in interviews and behind the scenes footage, Singer's very highly strung and socially awkward as a matter of course. The documentary special features on the making of Superman Returns show that to an unusually clear extent.

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

"Socially awkward"? I wouldn't say that I've seen him display anything that would indicate that in any of the press conferences or interviews I've seen him in. He is as you say high strung, passionate, and excited about the material that he directs. He admits in the "Superman Returns" DVD that he can be difficult at times to work with because he is so animated.

It was tough seeing Superman get clobbered by a woman.
