Wachowski Brothers Superman Rumor Debunked!
Remember that rumor we ran the other day about the Wachowski Brothers directing a Superman trilogy for Warner Brothers? It was both completely ridiculous and incredibly exciting at the same time, right? Well, sadly, it has been debunked. According to SlashFilm, it was all just a big hoax to begin with. "The Wachowski Brothers have definitely never had any talks with DC or Warner Bros to helm a Superman film. This is confirmed." While I had a gut feeling that it wasn't true to begin with, I was wishing that, by some stroke of luck, it might've ended up being true, just because I love the Wachowski Brothers movies!
See, this is the problem with movie sites these days. They get some e-mail sent to them and that they think is real and they run it as headline news. Basically some kid gets his socks knocked off when some crap he made up hits every major news outlet on the web. Who knows if there really was a TV show in Germany with James McTeigue, although I highly doubt there was. It was all a rumor to begin with and to be honest, I mentioned it because I love presenting rumors purely for the sake of discussion - a "what if" kind of thing. Would've it have been really cool if the Wachowskis did get to direct a Superman trilogy? Yes it would.
