Rumor Time! Superman Logo Appears on Michael Bay Site

The Hollywood Reporter dumped a little grist into the rumor mill today with news that a Superman logo appeared on director Michael Bay's official site. Why is this newsworthy? Because the "official" director of the long-delayed "Superman" movie is supposed to be "Charlie's Angels" helmer McG. Whoops.

The backtracking began exactly one second after the Hollywood Reporter inquired about the logo. Warner Bros. claims that McG is still their "Superman" director and a Bay representative said MichaelBay.com is run by a fan and Bay had nothing to do with the posting of the logo.

Run by a fan, eh? The site may be overseen by a fan, but combine the "official Web site" tagline emblazoned on the home page with the fact that MichaelBay.com is registered to Michael Bay/Bay Films and you can see why MichaelBay.com appears to be more than your average Michael Bay appreciation page.

Moreover, this isn't the first time Bay's name has been tied to the "Superman" project. Back in early 2003, Bay was rumored to be the replacement for former "Superman" director Brett Ratner (the "Rush Hour" movies). Of course, nothing ever came of those rumors, so nothing may come of this rumor either.
