Singer still planning on a sequel to Superman Returns

Funny thing about this was that I was talking to my DP/Editor Adam yesterday and I asked him “Do you think that they’ll make another one?” and he was like, “Yeah sure…”

At the Warner Bros. panel at Comic-Con in San Diego today, director Bryan Singer said that he was in talks with the studio about a sequel to Superman Returns. He hadn’t concluded a deal to do it yet, which he said is always “iffy,” but he has every intention to do a sequel for 2009, and said that while Superman Returns reintroduced the character for new people, the next one will let him get all “Wrath of Khan on it.” He added that you can expect an alien villain in the sequel.

He also joked that he has to see who’s left in the cast if he ever were to return to the “X-Men” franchise. Ironically, right before being asked about it, he had been joined on the dias by original Superman director Richard Donner, whose wife Lauren Shuler Donner produced the first two “X-Men” movies.

I’d go see it, I’m not saying I wouldn’t, but the first one wasn’t that good. Did I even tell people I went to go see it? I saw it the day before we left for Las Vegas, so probably not. I’ll post something about that too. Soon.

    Meh, I heard it was mediocre, could have been better for a comic book movie. Even Kevin Spacey couldn’t save it, which is saying something.

    Too bad, but hey, I don’t put much stock into Superman myself…would be more devastated if Spidey 3 sucked (which it WILL NOT). 🙂
