    Also surprised this hasn't been posted here yet. Deadline is reporting Warner Brothers has fast tracked the sequel already (Warner Brothers did mention a few months ago that they would make some kind of announcement after the opening weekend). Goyer will write, Snyder is back.

    ^ Just read that a few minutes ago. Maybe they'll follow in the footsteps of The Dark Knight and give us Superman's most iconic villain for the second round. It's already a trend.

    I'm look forward to seeing Luthor's cheesy Green Power Armor.

    strike while the iron's hot.

    This is just like "Amazing Spider-man" and "Green Lantern" greenlighting before the movie is even out/finished

    I have been reading a lot of the reviews this morning. Even the negative reviews do not make the movie sound bad.

    But it was said by homophobic fanbois, because of the way his costume was in the movie (maybe due to the cut of his shorts.)

    I'm listening to the soundtrack right now on Amazon's cloud player (my physical copy hasn't arrive yet but the free digital version was downloaded to my account last night) and it's really quite good.

    Well, then, this movie's really gonna get that criticism, since the bulge is even more apparent

    If Singer had burst out of the gates with guns blazing then I'm sure things would have been fine.


    Part 2 would have probably departed from Donner's vision slightly. I think he was waiting for the sequel to really let loose similar to "X-men 2"

    He was just building on what was established before THEN he'd serve the main course(Part 2)

    From what I remember, Perry White originally had a son that was his own issue, Jerry White who was a big ne'er-do-well that was killed by a gunshot during some bad deal. If they decide to bring in that version in future films, the Afro-American community will be in an uproar (there are already some bloggers who say that Superman could be black instead of white, and have come up with a casting list to support that idea.)

    Also, it turned out that Jerry's biodad was Luthor.

    Didn't Lucy Lane and Ron Troupe have a kid at some point?

    Before they turned her into a psycho-super villain?
