According to Diane Nelson, the new head of DC Entertainment, the studio has no plans to make a sequel to Bryan Singer’s “Superman Returns”. Or, actually, anything related to a live-action version of Superman at all. Or as Nelson puts it to MTV:
“We actually don’t have any current plans for Superman.
We’ve obviously done a lot of great things behind the property in our history, and it’s a key part of the family, but we don’t have current plans behind Superman.”
I don’t care what anyone says, I loved what Singer did with Superman in “Returns”. I just didn’t like all the other stuff. The Kevin Spacey scenery chewing as Lex Luthor part. The kryptonite shooting out of the ocean part. The — well, everything not related to Superman returning to Earth after a long absence part. I thought this was the first time a comic book character as powerful as Superman was dealt with correctly if he actually existed. He should be this standoffish. He should be this God-like. He sleeps in space and bullets bounce off his eyeballs, for God’s sake, couldn’t he do better for villains than a bald criminal and some clueless henchmen with a real estate scheme?
But I digress. So, according to the lady in charge of Superman and all the DC properties, there are no plans for a “Superman” movie, despite legal issues regarding the character having been dealt with, paving the way for said movies.
If they ever did do another “Superman” movie, I would love to see Singer return. Hopefully they won’t do what Marvel Studios tried to do with the Hulk. Yes, give me Ang Lee’s “Hulk” over that ridiculous “The Incredible Hulk” any day. Yeah, I said it.
