Old Aug 25th, 2008, 06:48 AM        New direction for Superman.
Looks like the runaway success of The Dark Knight has made the folks at WB second guess the direction their Superman franchise was headed. I can't wait to see how it turns out. It could be spectacularly shitty.

Movies featuring Green Lantern, Flash, Green Arrow, and Wonder Woman are all in active development.
And all of them will be awful.

I didn't like Superman Returns. In addition to being boring, Superman didn't so much save the day as NOT DIE. Just about the only action we saw between him and the bad guys was him being beat up. Having said that, a "brooding" Superman sounds even worse.

Superman Returns was one of the worst superhero movies ever. I thought that it was going to be pretty awesome at the start when he stops the airplane from crashing into the stadium, but after that he goes all emo.

Plus his kid is a wimp.

Im read that they wanted to make all the new movies darker in tone because dark knight did so well. I don't think you can make a ''dark'' superman movie.

I thought they cancelled the green lantern movie because the creator found out they had Jack Black playing GL, and were going to make it akin to the Mask movie.

What these retards don't get is that the dark tone is something that very much suits Batman and always has. Trying to make Superman and the others the same way is just stupid. Jack Black as GL is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard though.

This doesn't sound very good but Superman Returns was fucking terrible. Superman is standing on a planet size piece of kyrponite and still has his powers

so bad. Besides the incredible shit that was Miami Vice, SR is one of the worst movies ive seen in theaters in awhile.

Um, he didn't have his powers at that point. That's kind of how Luthor was able to casually walk up and stab him.

Yeah really. I would be okay with him keeping his powers if it meant he got to actually do something.

Um, I think this si what I meant " Superman, after regaining his strength from the sun, lifts the landmass by putting layers of earth between him and the Kryptonite." I guess I didn't realize he put layers of earth between him and the huge piece of his only weakness that somehwow doesn't even harm him very much if he is stabbed with a piece in the back. Um, so still gay.

I remember hearing some bizarre rumor about the Wonder Woman movie. And who to put on the wonderbra? CHLOE SEVIGNY.

So what, will she put the lasso of truth to a crook and ask them if they really, REALLY need a blowjob?

I'm sick of reboot ideas of movies that only came out a few years ago. These studios are pushing for too many mulligans.

I liked Superman Returns. I think it makes sense to make him into a kind of Jesus figure (although Singer pressed that point unnecessarily hard into our faces), since he's always been the archetype of a good guy. The darkest thing about him is that he doesn't save so many people. He hears people all over the world praying for rescue all the time, and yet he spends time doing mundane people things like having an ordinary job and flirting with Lois Lane while people are dying around him (well, even the other side of the Earth would count as "around him" with the powers he has). But that's also sort of a God-like problem, that you don't save everyone in the world. (Although it's a little analogous to how we all use money to buy mundane things, when we presumably could save lives if we gave everything we now spend on unnecessary stuff to medicin sans frontiers or something like that instead.)
Obviously everyone doesn't like Superman. Perhaps too few people like him to make Superman movies really profitable. Well, in that case, don't make more Superman movies then... Trying to remake him into some kind of flying Dark Knight would just be ridiculous.

Same here on the Liking Superman returns boat. It was a pretty good movie, and what i expected from a superman movie. They dont need to Reboot superman, just put him up against a real villian this time, maybe Brainiac 13 or Darksied (or Doomsday if they want to do that lame story).

I think a Superman movie with Brainiac would be good.

Singer originally said in interviews that he'd make a second Superman movie with more action... nothing wrong with that idea as far as I can tell.

Superman Returns was fine. Fuck, people. You'd think you'd be a little more appreciative of superhero movies that don't completely suck after daredevil, elektra, spider-man 3, x-men 3, and the fantastic four movies. It was lacking in action but it wasn't BAD.
