    @CBF: I completely agree with you. I was VERY excited to see how "The Man of Steel" would turn out had they kept Bryan Singer on the project. I liked Returns (for the most part) and I fully believed in his abilities to deliver a sequel that would go "Wrath of Kahn" on us, as he said and an action film on the level of his outstanding X-Men sequel. When I heard Routh and Spacey would be back but with Brainiac in it as well, and possibly a second lesser villian like Bizarro, I was very intrigued by that idea. Sadly, we will never see it now. :(

    I would love to see Tom and the rest of the cast for that matter, carry over Smallville to the big screen. I would be fine with Routh in the role again also though.

    I hope they cast someone that can be believable as Christopher Reeve was as playing Superman. Maybe this time get someone who knows what it like to be superman Tom Welling. With Smallville ending its final season, he would be the right choice to fill in those shoes.

    I don't think "Superman" has been confirmed as the title of the film. This should be reflected here on MovieWeb as "Untitled Superman Film", right now it is implying that the film is called "Superman", which as far as I know, is false. I think it is too early in the development for them to unveil the title.

    On another note, I liked the idea of "The Man of Steel," or the better title IMHO, "Superman: The Man of Steel" - as a direct sequel with Brainiac and New Krypton. That project had me excited. This - ??? Well... let's just say I'm not as enthusiastic about a reboot and it being all up in the air. Goyer is a good writer and I have faith in him, and he knows how to stay faithful to source material, but with the whole Siegel Estate vs. DC Comics lawsuit, and the rights to the character switching so many hands, it's hard to keep that faith. Especially being a WB reboot. WB is riding the Harry Potter wave right now but they have announced that the successor franchise following Deathly Hallows Vol. II in summer 2011 will be the DC films. This will no doubt have great special effects but the subject at hand is story and acting. Will those really be that great? The reason I ask about story is because the whole point to the Siegels winning back the rights in 2013 (I believe), means no more mentions of the Krypton origin, Krypton the planet, or Superman's Kryptonian heritage ever again in DC Comics and I surmise in any Superman media not owned by the Siegel Estate. Which if you take away that, Superman's story is really not very interesting.
