Superman Returns Sequel is NOT Delayed?!
Just last week we brought word that the Superman Returns sequel titled Superman: Man of Steel would be delayed because director Bryan Singer is working on another film titled The Mayor of Castro Street after he finishes his current WWII project Valkyrie. Well word has come from the Superman team via IESB that the Superman Returns sequel will NOT be delayed and will go on as planned - which means it will start production in late 2008. This is turning into a big feud between the producers on who can get their film the most spotlight, but it's likely there won't be delays to either.
The response from the team on Superman via IESB was fairly harsh.
"That's total horse shit, I would say the same thing if I was producing that film but don't you realize that most of the Superman producers are working with Bryan on Valkyrie? Gil Adler and Chris Lee both are in Germany with Bryan and I can guarantee you that there is some work being done with Superman right now."
So why would Mayor of Castro Street producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan say the contrary? "It's their job as producers to keep that movie on their front burner, but really, Bryan's deal with Warner Bros. for the Superman sequel is already done and signed and that's the priority."
Original interviews with the Superman production team stated that they would begin production in the summer of 2008, which means that they're still on track to begin then.
For all it sounds, I think they'll fit both movies in on time. It means Bryan Singer may have one busy non-stop schedule, but with these 3 huge movies on their way, what director wouldn't enjoy working on them. We'll keep you updated on each as details develop.

I hope that the previous cast is used and that they continue where they left off in Superman Returns. Having the kid in the story line made it more interesting and wanting to know what comes next.

Screw the kid. Why does the movie need him, so Superman can have a sidekick as Superboy?! Get real, it was a horrible idea to have him in the movie as Supermans kid. Here's what it looked like to me. Superman had sex with Lane, she says "Superman, I'm late." He got shook then flew off to find a planet that he knew was already gone!!! Then he comes back to find his old lady got a new man and a son. He wants her back so he becomes a peeping Tom and tries to screw up that dudes relationship with Lane, cause hey why not he's Superman, not like dude can beat him. So he snakes his way back into the equation, finds out the kid is his and goes to see him on a late night creep mission. Lane catches him and says "Are WE gonna see you?". Who is Superman? A dead beat daddy!!! What was his last line "I'll be around." Then he flew off! Bryan Singer destroyed Supermans moral fiber, every shred of it built over many years in one single movie. I'm crushed that Singer is returning and if the Kid returns I'll just wait for it to arrive at Blockbusters.

i think the kid - aka Jason - might be interesting. because he is half human and half kryptonian, perhaps he may not be like superman, and then again he may not have the flaws of superman either... as Tommy(above) pointed out there is a new possibility here... who knows what could come of it. 🙂 it'll fun to watch all the same. 🙂 perhaps even spiderman might have a kid too - hint, hint. 😉

Superman Returns, What a great movie. I think this one is the best so far. The kid I think they should not cut him out but continue in the story. It sure looked like he had super powers. I would like to see in the next film with something very excitng, that will make me intense not be able to take my eyes of the screne. Superman Returns Movie was thrilling, tense and emotional and that is what made it great. The only thing I wish they would not take 3 years or more for another Suerman Returns Sequil. After this one have another and another. Like Spiderman 3 so far. Looking to see Superman Movie when it is made.

I can't wait for another film, it'd be cool if they introduced Zod or Doomsday. For some reason I think Wentworth Miller would make a great Zod, I'd love to see him act all evil, I think he could pull it off!
