Nobody Wants to Play with Singerman

Apparently, Mattel didn't do any favors for Singerman's perceptions of "manliness." -->

A bit of a merchandise update for those of you that have been asking. A recent Variety article, gives us some details on movie-related toys that have been hot sellers and ones that are expected to be come Christmas season. The article states:

"With the latest bigscreen incarnations of Batman and Superman taking darker and more complex turns, the toy lines they inspired have taken some hits.
So went the buzz at last week's Toy Wishes Holiday Preview -- a mini lead-up to February's major Toy Fair event. "You have to have the box office," says Jim Silver, editor of Toy Wishes magazine. "But then the story and the theme has to be applicable to translate into the toys and into play."


Hmm, looks like there is a relation between the box office and merchandising.

"'Superman Returns' was a bit of a disappointment with respect to toys. It was more of a love story. If it had had more action it probably would have done better in the toy aisles."
This Christmas, instead of traditional toy staples like superhero lines, look for more whimsical properties to dominate kids' toy lists.
Merchandisers at the Toy Wishes confab were talking penguins and pirates.

Looks like Singer's problems do in fact carry over into the merchandising aspect of the film. After all, who wants to play with a hero who sits around and pouts about his girlfriend that he left, and throws big rocks? (especially when it looks like a young Liberace doll.) Sounds an awful lot like what we heard about the Halloween costumes.

Perhaps they should've used some of our merchandising ideas that were more in line with the film's plot?

Thanks to Christopher for the heads up.

Wait the merchandising was supposed to bring in $10000000000000000000000000000 and make up for the box office. Well at least the DVD will make billions.

Well the article is basically insuniating that all Superhero toys are not selling like they once did. I read a different article not that long ago that said Superman toys were selling on par with the other Superhero's. I think the main point is a bit of a changing of the guard altogether not just Superman.

Anonymous said...

yes of course, thats why they specifically mentioned SR and its lack of action.....

Anonymous said...

It also mentioned Batman as well did it not.

Anonymous said...

It said "movies like Superman and Batman that took darker turns," nothing specific was ever mentioend about Batman's toylines.

And superhero toys arent having low sales in general. The Spider-man toys made a killing, and even Hulk hands were a huge hit.

Anonymous said...

The article is not giving you any numbers on Superman's Toy sales. It is insinuating that both Superman and Batman toys as a result of the last 2 movies have been down. Without numbers to back it up you can't really have a intelligent debate about this, there is too much speculation.

Anonymous said...

Did Batman Begins NOT come out over a YEAR ago? And Singerman Peeps just about 4?

Are the "Apologists" now saying: "Well, Batman's toys aren't selling better than Singerman's so the movie didn't suck"??? The delusions just will NOT end....

Saying you like something is not a delusion, it is called an opinion. The article does not specify anything about dates or figures for Batman, Superman or any other superhero merchandise. Hence what i said about not enough info here to really get into this debate.

yeah you need actual numbers from SR's sales and BB's sales from last year before you can honestly debate the issue..

why do you need numbers for Superman and Batman? That's not the point of the article. The point, from someone who works in the industry, is solely that SR toys arent selling as well as expected, which is seemingly a theme for everything with this film. Too bad they dont have IMAX toys.

I collect Barbies (hey, what can I say) and I dragged my feet in buying the Superman Returns Ken which looks as bad in person as it does in pictures. I have not and will not purchase the Superman Returns Lois. But I've noticed they're on discount everywhere. As well as the other SR toys. They're just unappealing.

Because numbers would further illustrate his point of view. I saw an article recently that said Superman toys along with a few other were selling well according to industry standards. Without factual based info, it is all just opinion and speculation.

Deny it all you want, but that's the opinion of someone who works for a trade magazine in the industry. He has no reason to be biased. You say that you want figures to show that? Well what figures do you have to the contrary? Heck, do you even have a link fo someone saying the opposite? And if it's from months ago is it even valid anymore?

Sort of a convenient argument. You want figures to prove what this guy is saying, but yet you accept this other article that you've allegedley seen as god's honest truth without any figures to back that up? Some of you never cease to amaze me.

I never said that(you have to remember that with everyone posting anonymously it's hard to tell who you are responding to). I just want to see the figures to compare it to other characters and other years...That's all.

Doesn't really matter though...The game is going to sell like gang busters.

This is off topic but I had to get this off my chest. There is little doubt now that SR is going to hit 200 mil in the US. I am sure SSS is already planning a scathing post saying how the film had way higher expectations and listing every excuse imaginable as to why it crawled its way to 200 mil. He should step up and give the film a little bit of credit. He has been saying for months now that it is not going to hit that mark. This film showed better legs than he probably wants to admit, we’ll see if he takes the high road on this or just more cheap shots.

Anonymous said...

He'll take more cheap shots for sure. The film did have WAY higher expectations than 200 mil, however he has been saying for months it would not cross that mark so he should give SR a little credit.

Anonymous said...

NO! You should give IMAX credit. This movie is out of general distribution unless you clowns noticed. Without Imax it was sitting at $165M. Hell if there was no IMAX then the pirate and Xmen rape would have been complete. You are all sympathetic fools to think this movie deserve any credit. I will easily prove my point if this movie was about an anonymous superhero you would think it sucked ass. This movie will be in a few years referred to as the Star Wars Episode One of comic book movies. Losers.

It's true Superman Returns defenders were biting their nails hoping some miracle would happen and the film would make it to 200 mil domestic. Is this the best you can hope for with a new superman movie? says something if you ask me. Well that miracle believe it or not was Imax and it will make it to the so called magic number that automatically makes the movie less of a turd. i think not about the latter. It's still a turd even if it made it to a billion like some other movie. These hypocrites will dance for joy and flip their arguments around 180 claiming box office equals quality. You wait and see.

BO does not equal quality at all. Pirates 2 was a piece of shit half as good as the first and made insane money. Titanic is an even bigger piece of shit and is the biggest hit of all time. X3 was a fucking disgrace to the first 2 and made more money than SR. I did not love SR but was it better than those above mentioned movies you better fucking believe it was.

As far as this blog is concerned the jackass who runs it SSS has been talking shit for months that SR would not hit 200 mil. I am sure he will backpedal and come up with every excuse in the book as to why he was wrong. The I-Max figures for SR do not save SSS from looking like a dumb bitch with all his proclamations about how SR was not hitting 200 mil.

OBVIOUSLY THE GENERAL PUBLIC DOES NOT AGREE WITH YOU. You are like the KKK clan member thinking everyone else got it wrong. I love it.

Well you can't have it both ways now. You can't say SR bombed at the BO because it is a lousy movie, then when it hits 200 mil say yeah it made money but it still sucked. The poster is correct many movies that make shitloads of money are not great films at all. Saying that a films's gross is indicitive of it's quality is insanely stupid.

The point is he is about to be proven dead wrong. When you write countless blogs dedicated to a films BO, saying over and over that based on the data you don't see it hitting 200 mil. Then the film hits 200 mil, you are going to look pretty damn stupid.

Anonymous said...

And if you want to say that IMAX played a part fine..But remember that IMAX was pulling in huge numbers when he was saying it wasn't going to hit 200 million...So that doesn't say much about BO predictions.

And besides I have a feeling that films like this are going to have 3D IMAX scenes from now on..As long as the budget permits. I would be shocked if Spiderman 3 doesn't have any or for that matter BAtman Begins..Because of SR's incredible success on IMAX studio's have just discovered a new way to make more money..

Anonymous said...

On a totally unrelated note, has anyone else noticed that BOM has stopped reporting on SR's international gross? It hasn't been updated since OCT.1st..I'm pretty sure it's still playing overseas, so i'm just wondering why they aren't updating the WW numbers.

Anonymous said...

That is exactly right I have said here for a while that all this I-Max bias is dumb because it is a format that is only going to get bigger in the years to come. The I-MAX is the wave of the future. SR was the first big budget movie to utilize it with great success. Many more movies are going to follow SR lead on I-Max.

Rightly said. I will say it once and I will say it again. I want to know how many times these singer lovers grab for Superman Returns over spiderman on a movie night. WOW Singerman made 200Million. If Xmen and Pirates come out in Imax Superman would have been slaughter even more so.

I think there point really is that SSS was wrong about this which is fair. SSS did talk a lot of smack saying SR was no way hitting 200 mil and it will get there in a matter of days.

Joel1245 said...

Since no one is willing to give thier names, someone said earlier on that "Titanic is an even bigger piece of shit and is the biggest hit of all time."

What do you mean by this? That even though it was a major hit, you thought it was? Because otherwise, technically a movie isn't given that status if it made a lot of money.

(People, stop being cowardly and at least leave a name. Sheesh!)

Anonymous said...

Also a movie that does not make a lot of money is not automatically regarded as a piece of shit. Many people here want to say SR did not make whatit was supposed to because it sucked. Well plenty of movies make loads of money and are not neccesarily great films.

First, just because I liked SR doesn't make me a Singer lover..Second- That's a tough call if I'm being honest..Spiderman was a very good film, but I believe that SR was also very good..So if I could only pick one, right now it would be SR..And the reason is that i've seen Spiderman alot..I haven't seen SR that much, only twice in the theatres. Plus Superman is my favorite comic book character. But I'll say this..I would choose SR over Spiderman 2 in a heartbeat...That movie is way over-rated.

I think you are a little confused unless you have a bootleg copy of it nobody in the US has a copy of SR on DVD yet. You would have no choice but to pick Spiderman on movie night. I personally would take SR over either Spiderman movie, just my opinion.

Hmmmm a sub par superhero thrower of big rocks stalker movie. Over fights with Dr. Octopus, decend into madness of a son, and great set up for a sequel. Yeah that makes a lot of sense. Both of you sound like those Lucas apologists. Even the most die hard prequel fan will admit the original is better. Trust me you too will admit Donner is better even if it takes you a few years to grow up! :-P

Dekristie said...

OH..Believe me I believe that the Donner film was better. I just don't think that Superman 2 was better..And like I said I've seen Spiderman soooooo many times that I would honestly opt for SR if I had both DVD's in front of me...

But if I have a choice between Superman 2 the Donner cut and SR, I'm choosing Donner's cut sight unseen..CR is and always will be my number 1 Superman..But that doesn't mean that I don't like BR or Superman Returns...

I personally didn't like Doc Ock..I thought he was rather boring..I would have much prefferred to see Harry take up the Goblin costume, but that' just my opinion.

Spiderman 2 was just as much a chick flick as SR. Parker spent half the movie whining about how he wanted to be with MJ and his powers were just getting in the way.

Yes they're very similar and Raimi pulled it off without turning peter into a creepy stalker who goes out as spider-man to look into MJ's bedroom. I'm even suspecting Singer ripped off the whole love triangle from Spider-man 2 and just threw in that little twerp, jason for kicks. It's practically the same damn thing only raimi handled it better. He just needs to add some more quips and his spidey will be perfect. Superamn's status right now? Might as well be Dead.

Yes I have no interest in seeing superman give his boy flying lessons. Try and get that through your brain if you have one. Besides, it'll have a lower budget so go ahead and run around in circles all day twisting into a pretzel to prove how that means it'll be bigger and better. I'll be watching The Dark Knight on DVD instead.

You show these bums who can't make a superman movie where they went wrong so maybe, just maybe, there's a slim tiny chance they'll want to improve it in the next one instead of listening to their own choir chant praises like on bluetights. This film is a mockery of superman. I shouldn't even have to explain why but of course some have blinded themselves so completely they'll choose to never see where it went wrong. It's just another case of wasted potential in the comicbook film world. If this pseudo sequel crap is what you honestly wanted, then I hope you enjoy it. I'm sorry I can't.

Shut up you haters! Ha ha ha ha, wooo hoooo SSS now what do you have 2 say? 200mil baby!!! All praises to 3D Imax! You dumbass fools said it wouldn't make it and now you're going to make excuses for why it did bla bla bla bla bla, we know what your game is. No it's not spiderman numbers but it's still good. ha ha ha. You jerks were saying right along as it went up that it wouldn't hit 200 but SR basically giving you a big 'fuck you' right now while it sits on 200mil you said it would never make. Just admit you screwed up and are a bunch of dumbasses. And about the comics. Fuck the comics. I like my superman to be a little bit of a stalker, makes him darker... I like lex wearing wigs and having dumbass henchmen and sidekicks. I just do. And I like seeing superman get his ass wooped and I like the kid with the piano. That was cool. Anyway fuck sss, Singer's going to do a sequel and it'll have more action so it'll be betterer so YOU LOSE, good day sir.

Superman flaws that make him more human:

1. He is honest to a fault.
2. He cares so deeply he often lets his Clark identity suffer the consequences of his Superman identity. He ALWAYS puts others first.
3. He feels the pain of knowing he cannot be everywhere at once, though he may tray and often succeed at times. He finds a way to cope.


Ways he is not flawed.

1. He does not create messes he has to clean up. (Everything in SR that he had to confront came from his own screw ups.)
2. HE is not confused/ wishy washy/ depressed
3. He doesn't put himself first.
4. He does not act rashly.

Singer should go.

The Superman franchise deserved and deserves better.....much better.

WB had the perfect formula for Batman Begins in resurrecting a dormant franchise.......ESTABLISH A NEW AND FRESH FRANCHISE!!

For the life of me, I still don't comprehend why the WB execs would agree to a vague, pseudo-sequel to a 20 year old franchise.

Superman needed to be introduced to a new generation. He needed a movie that would embody the spirit of his character. For me, Superman is not just super in his abilities, but more importantly, super in what he STANDS FOR, HOW HE ACTS!!

Singer totally missed the mark on that.....he twisted, perverted, and degraded what should be the most noble of superheroes into a silly, soap-operish plot of Who's Your Daddy?!!!

In doing so, Singer has alienated a segment of Superman fans, which will not bode well for the sequel's box office success.

Of course, those who liked SR will see the sequel, will buy the upcoming SR DVD, videogame and other merchandise, and will spend money on the SR franchise. There is nothing wrong with that, and those fans are certainly entitled to their opinion.

However, I am one Superman fan will not see the SR sequel if it is a continuation of Singer's vision. I will not buy the SR videogame ( even though I really wanted to before I saw SR ). I will not buy the SR DVD when it comes out ( even though I really wanted to before I saw SR ). Nor will I further financially support the SR franchise.

Now I'm sure there are many other Superman fans out there who feel the same way as I do.

And, when parts of the character's own fan base are alienated from the franchise.....that doesn't bode very well for the sequel(s).

You know the problem here is too many people want to make this a black and white arguement. The people on here who hated SR want to generalize the film and say it sucked and it bombed at the BO. SR underperformed at the BO, but no movie that rakes in 200 mil domestic bombed. If you wanna blame WB for spending too much money on the damn thing go ahead, but 200 mil is hardly a bomb. The way i see it SR seems to have dissapointed a section of loyal Superman fans that were expecting something different than they got. If SR was loaded with action and a Supervillain i would have been curious to see how the reaction from the faithful would have been. That being said the film did make 200 mil, which means a lot of people did in fact see it and it also got good reviews so certainly it is not universally seen as a bad movie.

God, that kid was annoying. One thing that really bugs me about Singer is when he says the sequel will be like wrath of khan or how sequels are usually more action oriented than the first. Does he not realize the star trek film would have started with wrath of khan if it could have? Why would any studio want to start a franchise with a lackluster first movie? That's completely idiotic. It's usually only because of the budget that first films are not as big and expensive looking as the sequels. Terminator was made for pennies, then when it became a classic Cameron got more money and made T2 bigger and better, not because he wanted to make the first look low budget with old school fx, but because HE HAD NO CHOICE. SINGER DID. WB liked his x-men work and gave him everything he could ask for! And his defenders will cite his words again and again about how there's some magic reason sequels are sometimes better than the first. But it's nonsense. MONEY and STORY are what I see as the key factors there. But now his defenders will twist the top and say "wrath of khan cost less than Star trek the motion picture, har har." And it looks like a cheesy 80s movie, great. You really made me want to see SR2. What made wrath great was the story and I'm laughing right now at what story possibilites there are in this pseudo sequel bizzaro universe. Shall we rehash Superman 2?

Anonymous said...

This turkey barely reached the $200M mark? It was the 8th slowest film to reach that "goal" and fell $10M under the projected revenue.

I can't wait to see the possible sequel sink even lower and keep laughing my butt off. Superman needs a better Director, Writers and Production Team.

I hope Disney does make a 4th POTC film and run against a Singerman Returns sequel. It was funny the first time, it'll be funnier a second time.

LMAO...How about opening your mind to other versions of Superman nitwit? "Oh it's not exactly like the comics, it sucks..Waaaaa....waaaaaaaaa"

The truth is none of you haters were willing to give this a chance, and none of you went in with an open mind..You wanted Superman for all seasons or whatever else version, and if it didn't produce that then it was shit...I'll admit that I wasn't to pleased with Superman spying on Lois like he did, but he was hurt by doing that..He found out the woman he loved doesn't love him...So he was punished for doing that right away...And I still don't see the problem of Superman having a child...

Hey homophobe, what are YOU going to do about me anally raping your mom on a nightly basis? That skank bitch can take it all PLUS one. No need to ask her which sloppy hole you sprang forth from, the shit stains give it away...

Anyone else laughing at this guy? I mean, if I was going to repeat myself like an idiot, I would at least make sure I knew how to SPELL.

I guess he thinks that is more of an insult than what I post? I'm sure the intelligent people on here are busting a gut at you, shit-spawn.

By responding as immaturely as you just did, all you did was prove me right. Your real tough by posting anonymous and calling me a bitch. That is like hitting someone in the back of the head with a snowball and then when he turns around you point to the guy next to you.

That is pretty good i like that. I post anonymous here because the people are so damn RUDE. If this was a regular message board it would not be going on nearly as much. SSS has this set up so cowards can talk trash and hide.

Hey moron, I would hit you in the face with my fist, then point to your stomach where I would then hit you AGAIN. If you think for 1 second that I'm "afraid" of you, think again. Go back to Bluetights you fucking pussy, no one wants you here.

If I think you’re afraid of me, what are you 14 years old? You are threatening to beat me up on the computer holy shit, are you pathetic or what. How about you log back on and get a screen name that way people can track your posts. Then come back and talk this kind of trash. I am betting that you won’t do that because cowards like you will always take the easy way out.

Ok fuckhead, here's a little tip: Don't accuse someone of being a "coward", then say "If I think you’re afraid of me, what are you 14 years old?". By claiming someone is a "coward", you are implying "fear" you fucking goat-raper. I called you on your idiocy and you responded like I thought you would.

And there was no "threat". YOU set a scenario that was off-base, I countered with REALITY.

Dude, what are you 12?

I'm sure the intelligent fans that didn't like this film must be rolling their eyes at your idiocy..Seriously you are giving people that hate the film but can be civil about it a bad name..And you keep doing it...You aren't realizing how sad you are coming across when all you do is hurl insults at people and threaten them WHEN YOU ARE ON A FUCKING COMPUTER!!!!

I mean are you educated? Can you string a sentence together without cursing or calling people names? I got an idea, why don't you tell us what your screenname is on the other sites...this way we can come and bug the hell out of you...Because we all know you belong to every comic book site out there..Superman homepage(although as immature as you are you've probably been banned)etc...

Let's do away with this anonymous bullshit...Seriously we are all here attacking each other anonymously and it's getting old...You sit here and attack people for posting anonymously and yet all you do is post anonymously.

I have never in my life seen someone with so much pent up anger...At this point you are probably even embarrassing SSS.

But I hold no hope that you can respond to this without cursing and insulting...

Oh and the screenname you see is one of my actual screennames...Let's see if you have the balls to do the same.

You post nonsense like this and several other posts and you called him on his idiocy, keep dreaming pal. I agree with the last poster i hated SR as well but idiots like you and the nonsensical hate you display towards fellow posters is pathetic and totaly unwarranted.

People like him have no class, they don't get that the nastier they are the worse they look. I see he mocks my screen name now, just further showing his immaturity. What's next is he going to start in with the "My daddy can beat up your daddy" comments.

The worst part is if he could just be civil and not insult people nobody would have a problem with his message...You can tell me all the things that you hated about the film, and why you don't want a sequel, and why you think Singer fucked up Superman..Just do it with a little bit of Class and respect for others opinions and you will never have a problem..

What's the matter, you little fucking cunt-rag? You can't compete with these heinously-funny insults, so you cry like a little bitch?

YOU little assholes think this is about "winning", not anyone else here. See, we ALREADY WON. This turd flopped, and you ignorant cocks STILL think you are accomplishing something by trying to argue with people. Too late, lame brains. Too late....

Actually since other people that have hated this film are starting to tell you to shut up, I would say you are the only one concerned about winning. But you show how absolutely dumb you are when you say this film flopped when it beat the prescious BB's by 20 some million dollars WW. I guess that was a flop also.

Yeah and I guess you won the argument when they are announcing that even though it was a "flop" like your dumbass states they are starting to prep a sequel. Signing the director and starting the script writing process. But this is all a big elaborate scam by WB's to drum up DVD interest and then they are just gonna say "Pscyhe"

Do me a favor, Growup, get a life, move out of your moms house, get laid(no your blow up doll,and your mom doesn't count) and actually think of something intelligent to say before you comment back...Oh and for the love of God please stop jerking off to your Wonder Woman comics, it's pathetic...

LOL. Is that the best you can do, idiot? My god, it's too EASY fucking you little shits up.

"Prepping" a sequel? Hey retard, there are NO writers attached, NO date set, and NOTHING to say BS will get another shot. You morons really will take ANYTHING you read as literal. Fucking sad.

Sorry shithead, but you posting "Anonymously" as someone who didn't like the movie isn't fooling ANYONE. Fuck both of you, since we all know you are one in the same.

And don't mention sex, you little half-wit. Your mom told me your dick got cut off "by accident" when you were born. She always tells me she wanted a girl, while I'm nutting all over her face, and it's her "little secret" that she HAS one.
