Superman Returns as Superman Unleashed?

Will Bryan Singer return to direct the “Superman Returns” sequel? Will the Wachowski Brothers take a crack at it instead? Will Warner Bros. finally give us a Booster Gold movie already before the world ends? All very good questions, without a whole lot of answers. The latest Superman tidbit has the title being changed to “Superman Unleashed”.

The original news story hails from the blog of one Alex Litel (via Slashfilm), who stumbled across the “Superman Unleashed” title, among many others, at the Legendary Pictures website. Here is the official plot for the sequel before the page was taken down:

“Ramping up the action of its esteemed predecessor, the sequel to ‘Superman Returns’ promises to raise the stakes and take the audience to heights of action that no other superhero movie can achieve.”

So according to the Legendary Pictures site, yes, the next Superman movie will be a sequel to Bryan Singer’s “Superman Returns”. Then again, they did take the page down, so maybe this was an old page that has been up there for a while, and needs to be changed, sort of like a smelly diaper. We shall see.

Below: “So, er, you ready to ‘unleash’ on me, big boy?”

    Ive got to agree with Daniel, No one gives a flying rat’s ass if your a girl a guy or just a cross dressing homo This thread is on Superman and for heaven’s sake let it be on supes.

    I think the whole idea of making brandon routh be like chistopher reeve is screwed up. No one can match him , you just need a different take on the character like how heath ledger had the entire concept of joker revamped, he did not try to imitate Jack Nicholson . Now thats whats needed in the superman franchise. A strong story line and a good caste (that doesnot mean Son of superman hell no, i hate the very concept of superman having a son)

    Well, I know a Seattle area casting director who stated the search for the next Supe’s was brutal. I think they found a pretty good second to Chris Reeve in Brandon Routh. Superman Returns was a let down in some ways, but knowing where they wanted to take the film back to (dissing the Richard Pryor era), I think it was OK. I give it a B-. They def need to ramp up the action and get a REAL villain that Superman can hammer on. Enough with the lame Lex Luthor. This next Superman does need to be a little more brutal, a little more edgy, but I don’t think it needs to go too dark. Batman IS dark. Supes is not, typically. Don’t try to make the big S a Batman Kryptonian. Looking forward to the next REAL Superman film. And I hope they keep Routh.

    I think they need to make the death of superman trillogy, the comics are highly rated in any top comics list. It would make a great superman trillogy with lex, doomsday and supergirl.
