Singer didn't write the script...these guys did: Simon Kinberg and Zak Penn. The director usually has no involvement in the script writing process. They had to churn out a fast script because of the strike and that's why Ratner had no time to get a better script written. But if he were a better director, he would've had no problem making changes to the script on the fly like Guillermo Del Toro did on Blade 2. He said that Goyer's script made no sense and he had to rewrite half of it during the filming of the movie. There was a love scene in Blade 2 that lasted 17 pages. But Ratner couldn't come up with changes because he's a hack who was more interested in a paycheck.

I really enjoyed Hulk so I think Letterier on Avengers is great news. I keep waiting to hear if Norton will return to the role of Banner. I wouldnt be surprised if he was recast to keep costs down though.

Singer off X-Men... Who Cares? If they just continue the story of the previous three films I'm gonna pass. They need to reboot and get the X-Men more in line with the work Marvel is doing on their films.

Superman... Guess we have to wait and see. If the villain is Luthor with another stupid real estate scam I'm gonna be pissed. Metallo? Brainiac? Darkseid? With the talent working on the devlopment I'm sure we wont be disappointed.

Clash of the Titans: looking forward to this, even moreso than Iron Man 2 (but only because IM2 is a sequel).

Les aventures extraordinaires d'Adèle Blanc-Sec: looks great, but I probably won't buther unless it is Englkish dubbed. BTW, boob-shot at 2:01. I'm not so sure that trailer should be here.

I agree with Violator and DaForce It isn't Singer hate, it's simply an opinion that the X-Men are fantastic source material and any competent director could've done at least what Singer did and any good director who respected the source stuff, yet knew how to make it work on the big screen would've made better films than singer. What really got on my nerves recently was him making some crack that he was a big part of getting Marvel out of their previously dodgy financial situation. Earth to singer - the X-Men succeded because of the years of anticipation by the fans, the familiarity and goodwill built up by those characters since the late 60s(yes they were created in the early 60s, but apparently only became really popular in the late 60s, with periods of massive main stream popularity over the years e.g 80s, 90s), the crazy soap opera that is the X-Men's lives (I will give him that the casting of Xavier was spot on - absolutely perfect, the others were fine) and finally that the technology had reached the stage where super powers could be depicted on the screen that brought the vast majority of the fans in, not his mediocre directing talent. He didn't completely botch the job, but he is by far NOT the best director for it and I would like to see them at least pick a better director.

Side note - Violator, I don't feel that Leech on the big screen was that different from in the comics.

As far as Vaughn, he bailed on Thor apparently because he disagreed with Marvel, which is not a good sign for me because I think that Marvel knows better than any director or screen writer what to do with their characters.
