Bryan Singer Confirmed to Direct 'Superman: The Man of Steel'

Plus, other production updates from the 'Superman Returns' sequel.
It has been confirmed that Bryan Singer (X-Men) will return to direct Superman: The Man of Steel, the sequel to Superman Returns. IESB spoke to a source at Warner Brothers who confirmed Singer's involvement.

The story also provides insight as to who may be writing the script. Writers Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris, who wrote Superman Returns, are out. So who is in? Well, the strong possibility is that the film will be written by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. The duo previously gained notice for their script writing on Transformers.

The pair of writers have apparently had "several meetings" with Warner Brothers regarding the film.

Brandon Routh, who played Superman in Superman Returns, has already confirmed that he will be returning for Superman: The Man of Steel as well.

Man of Steel was released June 14th, 2013 and stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, Russell Crowe, Antje Traue, Harry Lennix, Richard Schiff. The film is directed by Zack Snyder.

    ramasscreen, i completely agree with X-men 3 being an absolute joke. Just terrible. Although Superman Returns did have some problems it did do a great job of showing Superman's true strength. And I have all the confidence in the world that Brian Singer will once again deliver a brilliant movie.

    P.S. Brett Ratner should die.

    Hopefully it will be much better than "Superman Returns", but if it's being written by the guys who wrote "Suckformers", sorry I mean "Transformers", than it's not looking good.

    Mr. Singer...lay off the soap opera stuff this time around please. And you had Superman as a sniveling little peeping tom in one scene too...kinda pathetic.

  13. Rama's SCREEN

    So the writers who might come up with the story for this installment are the guys who wrote the action packed TRANSFORMERS??...

    I'm sold!

    The one thing disappointing about SUPERMAN RETURNS was that it didn't have enough action.
    It was boring.

    I'm cool with Bryan Singer returning.
    As long as it's not Brett Ratner.. X-Men 3 was a joke!
