Singer talks 'Superman: The Man of Steel' (sort of). Plus: Updates on super-toons like 'Wonder Woman', 'Hulk Vs.' and 'Batman: Brave and the Bold'. This is your news-chum spread over the surface of the internet for November 20th, 2008:
There's been plenty of rumor, innuendo and conflicting reports about plans for a sequel to Bryan Singer's disappointing 'Superman Returns'. Singer and start Brandon Routh have said they plan on returning. Warner Bros has suggested the studio might go in a different direction. Let's not even bring Mark Millar into this report.
To set the record straight, MTV Splash Page asked the man himself as Singer makes the press rounds for his new movie 'Valkyrie'.
"At the moment, I can't really talk about that. I wish I could," Singer said of the sequel effort. "From my perspective, I'm going to take a brief pause. ['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."
Hmmm...that doesn't really clear things up at all, does it? Whatever the case, it seems that if Singer is going to do the 'Superman' sequel, it won't be any time soon.
