Superman Returns or Justice League film next?

SupermanReturns_Poster.jpgA Superman Returns (Filmstalker review) sequel might not be delayed after all, and filming might begin next year, or if you listen to more rumour, Justice League could be getting a film treatment first with a Superman Returns sequel being delayed...who to believe?

A few days ago I caught a story from Empire told us that Bryan Singer was working on two films before the Superman sequel, and that this could well push the film out longer than expected giving Superman a bit of a rest.

Today though we're hearing from Robert Meyer Burnett who was the Producer of Requiem for Krypton, a documentary appearing on the Superman Returns Special Edition DVD, that the film is going ahead. From The Planet through ENewsI.com:

Angeloz asks if I'm coming back to work on the sequel. The answer is...I'm ALREADY working on the sequel. Bryan, Brandon and the whole merry bunch will be coming back...and filming will probably begin March, 2008, as was always planned from the beginning. The WWII film Bryan plans to shoot over the summer will have NO EFFECT whatsoever on the Superman sequel schedule.

Well the report was for two films, but putting that to the side there's a rumour from Moviehole through IESB that Justice League could be happening first.

...I heard from a pretty reliable source...that the WB are thinking of putting the next "Superman" movie into turnaround, and instead will just use the character in the new "Justice League" movie...

...Having now heard the same from about half-a-dozen reliable insiders, I checked in with a couple of sources near the Water Tower itself, who wouldn’t confirm nor deny the reports, but definitely haven’t dismissed that it’s a possibility. One of them would only say that there "could be something in [that]"...

Clint goes onto say that there's no Batman in the film because he's just too big for that. Yet I just can't see them going for such a big ensemble superhero film without seeing how something like Watchmen does first, and I can't see them passing up a Singer Superman sequel either, can you? I'm going with the Superman film being on track next year.



I'm going with the Superman film being on track next year.

Yes please!!!
