Singer Talks "Superman Returns" Sequel

Superman Returns"Superman Returns" director Bryan Singer revealed that he anticipates being involved in the next Superman film, according to MovieWeb. The word came during a Superman panel hosted by Warner Brothers studios at the San Diego Comic-Con 2006 on Friday.

Singer said that while he has not yet signed on to the project - nor has Warner approached him about being involved with a follow-up film - he believes this too shall come to pass.

He also said that if given a chance to helm the next installment, he would continue the story where "Superman Returns" left off and would bring back screenwriters Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris to draft the screenplay for the sequel.

I'm not sure if Superman fans will be happy or sad about this. I suspect mixed. While I thought Singer's installment was a good reentry into the Man of Steel saga (though not without some major flaws), some fans are fuming, saying that the story was trite and the characters were flat.

Perhaps if Singer finds a new Lois Lane (currently played by Kate Bosworth), fans could be appeased. That seems to be one of the biggest criticisms I've heard. However, if "Superman Returns" rakes in "enough" bucks for the studio (whatever that might be), I doubt much will change. -- Shannon Nolley
