Bryan Singer talks about the next Superman film

http://www.mtv.com/movies/news/artic...81/story.jhtml
  • MTV: There's a lot of confusion about whether you will be directing another Superman film. Can you set the record straight?
  • Singer: At the moment I can't really talk about that. I wish I could. From my perspective I'm going to take a brief pause. This movie [Valkyrie] has taken a long time so I'm going to take a pause. A movie like that takes some time to do right. That's all I can say about that.

In other words, when asked to clarify the confusion, Singer simply made it worse.

Were there any pancakes on his head when he said this, because that would've made more sense to me.

Thread should be retitled "Bryan Singer can't talk about the next Superman film."

Personally, I hope Singer will get another shot. Rebooting the franchise shouldn't require bringing in a new director.

LOL--he should have just answered "No, I can't set the record straight." and let it be.

Re: Bryan Singer talks about the next Superman film

There is a large Elephant in the room that is effecting future Superman films. Which fans seem to overlook. A massive lawsuit between the family of Jerry Siegel and DC Comics. Its not just Bryan Singer who is keeping quit on this subject but Warner Bros as well. Singer himself even testified in the trial. On whether the core elements introduced in Action Comics #1 are still the basis of the modern Superman character.

Re: Bryan Singer talks about the next Superman film

I wish they would reboot the entire Superman franchise and start over like Batman.

I was talking to a friend and personally I would have Darkseid as a background villain in the first episode, having him create Superman. Darkseid, in his quest to conquer the galaxy, finds out that a Kryptonian will be a constant thorn in his side (not necessarily his downfall) in his bid to add more planets, including a planet called Earth to his Empire. So he sends a small task force to the planet but before he can slowly infiltrate the planet, it explodes because of seisimic problems. And then you go from there.

I didn't even know there was a lawsuit going on at this point. Disregarding AC#1 and looking at the original newspaper comic strips set on Krypton (if it was even called Krypton?) it is pretty obvious that all the core elements are still there in the modern day character.

At this point DC, and Time/Warner their parent company, really needs to just bite the bullet and settle with the Siegels. They have lost the war with the ruling on Action Comics, they should just accept the fact and move on. That way they will stop hampering the current creative people they have on the character. Allow them to create the stories people have been clamoring for and make more money for the company overall. The hamstrings they have put on their creators amounts to DC not liking how the game is being played, so they are leaving and taking their ball (the trademark) with them. They really just need to play and everyone will have fun.

Re: Bryan Singer talks about the next Superman film

^I don't understand why we need an origin story every time a franchise is rebooted. Batman I can understand, since the new origin was part and parcel of the story. But someone like Superman, everyone knows the basics, and those are really all that matter for such an iconic character. Why can't we just start with Superman in Metropolis, already active and famous, and tell a good story from there? I don't really see a need to either show his youth or to show him coming back from being gone for five years. He's Superman, he came from another planet as a baby and got superpowers, what more do you need to know?
Actually, I kinda wish other superhero franchises would be a little risky and just show the characters already in business, with maybe some quick explanation or flashbacks. It appears that they're doing this with the Spirit, but that doesn't really count for me because I can't stand Frank Miller as far as I can throw him. But then, if that one works, maybe others will try it.
