Re: Superman: The Reboot --- Its offcial

So, plans for four DC films over the next three years, with announcement of their plans to come in a month (if things stay on track). Fingers crossed for Green Lantern to get the go-ahead!

And once again Warners proves they don't have a fucking clue. The Dark Knight was dark because Batman works great dark. Superman doesn't - never has and never will. Neither does Wonder Woman. Or for that matter most of the DC characters.

If done right I think a Green Lantern film could be an Iron Man type hit.

I believe the article mentioned four tentpole pictures over the next three years, two of them being the third Batman movie and the Superman film, and then two others. The article then said that WB plans to also actively develop Green Lantern, The Flash, Green Arrow and Wonder Woman.

I wonder what the two other DC films are, besides Batman and Superman, unless those are either GL, The Flash, Green Arrow or Wonder Woman. I do hope one of them is Green Lantern. I can't tell you how long I've waited to see a big-screen version of that character.

Here's the bit that I was referring to:

The studio is set to announce its plans for future DC movies in the next month. For now, though, it is focused on releasing four comic-book films in the next three years, including a third Batman film, a new film reintroducing Superman, and two movies focusing on other DC Comics characters. Movies featuring Green Lantern, Flash, Green Arrow, and Wonder Woman are all in active development.
I sure hope Green Lantern is one of the other two and that the announcement comes a month from now.

I so hope this is true. That is all for now. I have so much more to say later.

Aquaman starring Vincent Chase should be one of those movies.

2 hours of Mandy Moore in a bikini?

Cleaning up the theater after one of those screenings would be slippery to say the least.

Re: Superman: The Reboot --- Its offcial

Put me down as in "wait and see mode" if they do reboot the franchise.

I, for one, liked Superman Returns, and while I think it's definitely a B and not an A, I suspected heavily that the eventual sequel would be to Returns what X2 was to X-Men. In other words, one of the best superhero movies of all time. But sadly, that appears to be dead now.

It reminds me a little of how I felt when Singer left X-Men 3 to do Returns in the first place. I was disappointed in X-Men 3.

But since this is a reboot and not a sequel, it's a wild card, thus my "wait and see" mentality.

Still, I can't help feeling Singer's sequel could have been awesome. Oh well.......

Actually, IIRC, the writer of those movies was the one attached to the Batman vs. Superman movie that Wolfgang Petersen was going to direct.

Perhaps. But I have faith as they look at The Dark Knight's returns then its inevitable monster DVD sales, that pure greed will move this new Superman movie briskly along.
I dunno. I mean, you'd have thought the same thing from the monster successes that Warner Bros. had with Batman & Batman Forever in 1989 & '95.

Re: Superman: The Reboot --- Its offcial

Well, I've been hearing from some "sources" that this will be a complete reboot, which means no Bryan Singer, no Brandon Routh, and pretty much none of the cast or themes from Superman Returns.

Also, WB is apparently targeting a 2011 release date.

Good point. But the overall climate would seem to be more favorable to superhero films now. There are now several out there, and bit more variety, that haven been proven to be very profitable.
