“Superman: Man of Steel” Update August 20, 2008 3:22 am

Anne Thompson of Variety is reporting that behind-the-scenes, Warner Bros. is debating how they should proceed with the planned Superman Returns sequel Superman: Man of Steel:

The debate continues to rage about what Warner Bros. should do with Superman. The last movie, Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns, paid homage to the Richard Donner Superman movies without completely updating the franchise the way Christopher Nolan did with Batman Begins.

Fans have been clamoring all over the web–and on this blog–for a complete reboot. And within the halls of Warner Bros. the same debate rages on. They too believe that the last movie didn’t break the mold and wound up in some kind of middle limbo. Today I was told that it is a priority at the studio to find the right direction and if Bryan Singer is willing to do that, fine, but if he gets in the way, he may not stay on the project. There are no writers working on a Superman script now. The studio wants to figure it out. “It might be better to start from scratch,” one exec admitted.

I know that many fans had problems with Superman Returns, but I personally enjoyed the heck out of it, and would love to see where Singer would take the sequel.  I’m not sure what Warner Bros. expected, afterall, they completely botched the marketing behind it, yet the film still managed to slightly gross more money (because of the overseas market) than the more critically beloved Batman Begins.
