    Brandon Routh PROBABLY Won't Ever Play Superman Again

    Firstshowing.net has received information from a Brazilian movie site called Omelete, that recently interviewed Brandon Routh about the upcoming CBM "Scott Pilgrim Vs The World". They got some quotes from the actor about the possibility of him donning the cape again.

    Routh (via a rough translation) says that he knows nothing about what's currently going on and, most importantly, that his contract to play Superman has since expired. "But if they call me again, back to the character without thinking twice"

    Superman Movie by 2012

    Warner Bros., DC Comics and Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel (technically, his estate) have been locked in a custody battle for Superman for some time now, and the latest stage in the case has gone Warner Bros.' way - but the continuing suit could force Warners to put a Superman film in development by 2011 in order to hold onto the rights.

    Also, ever since Bryan Singer's 2006's "Superman Returns," a new Superman has been in limbo.

    "Our hope is to develop a Superman property and to try again," Warner Bros. Entertainment president Alan Horn said in April. "What hurt us is that the reviews and so on for the Superman movie did not get the kind of critical acclaim that Batman got, and we have other issues with Superman that concern us."

    It's a shame. I actually kind of liked Brandon Routh as Superman.

    I didn't. I think he and that movie was mostly terrible. I have not seen much of Routh since that movie and for good reason. The only reason why they got him for the role is because he resembles Christopher Reeve.

    I'm totally glad they decided to reboot the series after that mess (even though all this "we want to make it like Dark Knight" talk makes me sick).

    Alright, angry rant over. Phew. I feel better now.

    DC Comics Movie Adapations UPDATE

    Superman: Warner Bros. is currently planning for a complete overhaul of the Superman series with a few directors and writer already having pitched ideas including Mark Millar. At current, there is no script, no writers and no directors. A Superman reboot will likely hit theatres in summer 2012.

    Brandon Routh To Fly Again?

    Brandon Routh and Sam Huntington dropped a little bit of Superman: Man of Steel info today at the SDCC during the Dead of Night Panel.

    When asked the ground breaking question of if there were any new news on the project Huntington quickly shouted "No!" But thank god Routh likes us fans because he was a little more apt to let us in on what was in fact going on. The Superman Returns star said that there is new momentum on the project and that he and Sam are both interested on returning for a sequel, if it happens.

    Gibbons: 'Superman needs to be reimagined'

    Dave Gibbons has suggested that Warner Bros should "reimagine" their Superman film franchise.

    The Watchmen co-creator, who provided art for the classic Superman comic story For The Man Who Has Everything, told DS that he found Superman Returns "a little bit unsatisfactory".

    "This is my ten cents worth: perhaps it would be a good idea to reimagine it the way that the Batman man franchise was reimagined," he said. "That is the direction I'd take Superman in; I'd go back to basic potentials and start from the beginning."

    Gibbons stressed that he felt it would be unwise to make the next Superman dark like Christopher Nolan's reconceived Batman series.

    "I've always thought of Superman and Batman as yin and yang. One is dark and mysterious and the other is bright and adventurous," he explained.

    "Again, my personal view is that they should make it lighter, with that sense of wonder that Superman has always had. Not to make it childish or puerile but to make it something that has a bright sense of adventure and possibility."

    Personally, I don't think Superman needs to be reimagined. I would be fine with just another sequel.

    Superman Fast-Track on Track

    IESB have some tidbits about Superman that they gathered from WB execs during Comic-Con.

    As everyone knows by now, Bryan Singer is no longer involved in the Superman franchise. Hence, the billion dollar question is...who is?

    First are the Wachowski Brothers, yep, Andy and Larry. The other name I am hearing is James McTeigue...

    Here's where things get fuzzy, because I am also hearing the Wachowski's may come in to produce with James McTeigue as the actual director.

    Part of me wonders why WB would allow the Wachowski's anywhere near Superman after the amount of money they cost the studio after the disaster that was Speed Racer. But, then again, they did make WB plenty of dough on the Matrix trilogy plus Jeff Robinov loves these guys.

    To me, it makes more sense to have Andy and Larry Wachowski serve as producers with James McTeigue to direct after the awesomeness that is his film Ninja Assassin because the one absolute mandate WB and DC have for the new Superman film is for it to be action packed, something Superman Returns was sorely lacking. And there is no doubt that the Wachowski's and McTeigue can be relied on for action.

    they could do what they did with the incredible hulk and reimagine it without disregarding the former movie. i agree with dave when he says superman is about being bright, he is a man full of hope and that should reflect in the movie's made for him. unlike batman who is a man of despair.

    I just think that Superman Returns gets more of a bum rap than it deserves. That is all. Don't get me wrong though, I do want an action-packed Superman movie. But a strong story is extremely important as well.

    Superman: Warner Bros. and DC Comics lose rights to character's early depictions

    A California judge issued a ruling on Wednesday awarding rights to various aspects of the Superman mythology to the family of the character’s co-creator, Jerry Siegel, reports Variety. Because Siegel conceived and published key elements of the character before DC Comics bought the franchise, the Siegel family has sued Warner Bros. and DC for copyright infringement. After today’s ruling, the family now control the rights to Superman’s origins, the planet Krypton, his parents, Superman as an infant, and his fiery crash into Earth. A previous court order last year awarded the family copywright ownership of Lois Lane, The Daily Planet, and alter-ego Clark Kent. Now the studio is left to sort out how much it owes the Siegels for profits they’ve collected from the character since 1999. And since full ownership of the Man of Steel reverts to the Siegels in 2013, the studio will be forced to go into production on any further Superman or Justice League movies before 2011.
