Apparently the Academy Laughed as Hard as We Did

Don't fret friends, we're back from a minor vacation and full of some great stuff coming at you in the next couple days. Well it looks like nominations for the Oscars came out today, and guess who was conspicuously absent from any of the relevant nominations? Yeah, Singerman. Despite WB's silliest efforts, Singerman didn't sniff a single nomination for any of the top categories. Not that anyone here thought they would mind you. Well OK maybe that guy in the comments who keeps insisting the sequel is now in production did, but hey, a guy can dream can't he?

Though like we predicted they might they did snag a nod for visual effects. Though if I were them, I wouldn't be beating my chest. When you make a $210 million film wouldn't you think the special effects would be something "special?" If only we could say the same for the directing, writing, acting, music, costume design, etc., etc., etc. And hey check out who they're up against! That super-mega hit Poseidon!! and Pirates of the Caribbean 2...again. Seriously does anyone really think this award ISN'T going to POTC2? Was anything in Singerman even remotely as good as the CG Davey Jones?

So what Superhero movies do not clean up at the academy awards. Spiderman 2 in 2004 got 2 for sound and one for it's effects. SR got one for it's effects which is what was to be expected for a film like this.

Kate Bosworth got a Razzie nomination for Worst Supporting Actress.

There's too many Australians involved anyway no matter how good the effects are

Exactly. Thats why this is funny because how many others had the gaul to send out posters to the Academy trying to get nods for the real awards? None.

please you are deluded. If this was the I hate Pirates Website they would have posted the leaflet for pirates. This site will be dead in 6 months mark my words. I mean how long can SSS keep up the vitrol. You denialist are all the same and you will wait on line in 2009. Doubt me Iron Man is in the same state but if you ask SSS he would say that is in preproduction.

Denialist? If anyone is in "denial" it's mental midgets like you who've convinced yourself this movie wasnt a piece of crap.

Keep dreaming up your "IF" scenarios for Pirates, Iron Man, etc. The rest of us prefer to dwell in the reality of Singerman sucking.

Yeah, people with fully-functioning brains are "Denialists" for stating the truth: No sequel to Singerman Peeps has been greenlit yet.

This moron is even going around in here stating a budget, dates, and actors are already "locked". Then, to "prove" his point, he claims to "know someone" involved in the "production". ALL indicators that he is a pathetic 12 year old with delusions of grandeur.

That, and he's a shit-nugget from Bluetights.net that THINKS he is somehow "winning" against this Blog.

my favorite was the tool who reposted a message board posting about some random guy who works at a bank who where SuperKid's grandpa goes, and he told him so. LOL These people get sadder by the week. Just admit this movie sucked, you'll feel better about yourself when you're no longer living a lie.

On Monday January 22nd, Kevin Spacey appeared on the "Late Show with David Letterman" and spoke about filming his role as Lex Luthor in "Superman Returns" stating, "The film was a big hit and we're going to do another one in a couple of years".
Spacey indicated that filming the movie "was a ball" and added with a laugh, "It was a lot of fun and I rather enjoy shaving my head every day."

The sequel movie (tentatively titled "Superman: The Man of Steel") is scheduled for a 2009 release.


Man I post story after story. Ok one may be over hype but 20? Come on you stupid idiots. I can smack this site around all day. The stars are in the writing is begining this movie is on the path to glory.

the sad part is he's too dumb to know that no one is saying a sequel isnt going to happen (unfortunately). People are just saying, and correctly so, that a sequel hasnt hired writers, been written, or greenlit yet, and wouldnt start production until some time in 2008

Hmmmm you denialists are amazing.

Who would know more if a sequel was coming. Denailists or someone who starred in the movie.

Wow, good comments guys. Why doesn't everyone just chill out about this sequel garbage. There is NO slotted sequel. Warners signed contracts with everyone from the film and held rights for them to do subsequent sequels IF they are greenlit and IF they go into production and IF the studio decides the sequel will make them MONEY!!!

Because of a SLIDING SCALE Superman Returns actually LOST money after production costs and marketing. If you don't realize this then you really are in denial and need to look at the FACTS of the industry not your HOPES for a sequel because why again... you liked the first one?

Um....

This site is for people that CARE about Superman, not just people who will take anything they can get no matter how horrendously lame and terrible on every level becasue there's a stylized plastic S on it.

If you thought this movie was "great," then congradulations, Bryan Singer successfully manipulated you, either through nostalgia, or... well, nostalgia.

Oh, and Katie... you should feel proud, you really earned that nod. But where's Routh, Spacey, that Kid, or and Langella? And don't they have awards for "original" screenplay, and directing? The board's getting sloppy.

It's actually NOT getting "sloppy".

If you've been here long enough, you'd see we get a steady stream of assholes from the Pro-ANYTHING Singer sites like Bluetights. They come here, drop insults and stupidity, then I'm sure they "brag" to their fellow morons. I consider it "open season" on these people, and will deal with them accordingly.

If you don't like it, the only advice I can give is to not pay attention to it. It's not directed at YOU, so it shouldn't really affect YOU.

And it ISN'T nostalgia these "people" are blinded by. They don't even LIKE Superman, whether they want to admit it or not. They like Bryan Singer. He claims to "like" Superman, so they do too.

This is an ignorant viewpoint. I happen to like the film, but I also know a lot about the character and I read the comics from time to time. I just didn't hate this movie like you did. That doesn't mean I don't like Superman or only like the movie because Bryan Singer directed it, it just means I didn't have such a bad reaction to the film.

I like the film, but I also see the faults. And I do have problems with it, but I'm willing to see where the story goes.

Funny how nobody was screaming for Bryan Singers head when he made XMEN, or called him a hack.

I got news for you too, if BS does drop out they are still going to sequel this film. It may not get a third film, but I think they will give it one more sequel to see if they can address the complaints that the fans have had.

Actually, your ENTIRE POST is ignorant.

If you ACTAULLY liked the character, you would not "look past" the shit BS put him through. You would want him done RIGHT, not "Meh, I'll take what I can get". Anyone who does this is NOT a fan, I don't care what LAME statements you make.

"I read a couple comics so I MUST be a fan". Please.

Oh, and this statement is so ignorantly funny. Do some research, and see the reaction to the costumes.

He could get away with that shit with X-Men, who had NEVER been brought to live-action before. NOT with Superman. His hag of a costume designer is so pathetically stupid, she said, and I quote, "Red and blue would not work on-screen today". What the fuck?? Did these two idiots not see how much money a little film called SPIDERMAN made? What are his colors again? Oh yeah, RED AND BLUE.

"I read a couple comics so I MUST be a fan". Please. "

Here's the thing...You know nothing about me. I am a fan of the character. Just because I don't live and breathe the comics does not make me any less a fan. You know everything about Superman, great..I'm happy for you.

And if you must know, I have a problem with the kid, with the darkness of the suit..and I had a problem with the xraying Lois in her home...But I don't let it ruin my enjoyment of a movie. I don't think those are that big of a destruction of the character. The only thing that I really wish they would have not done, was the kid. The suit was a mistake, but it's a mistake they can easily correct, as is the spying(just never have him do it again).

Picking on Superman's costume is, to me, pointless as the costume has changed significantly through the years. I do wish it was brighter though...


You mention XMEN, and I do remember the uproar over the costume..I remember the fanboys screaming about Hugh Jackman, and now we can't imagine anyone else playing the part.

But I'm pretty sure that uproar has died, and almost every fan loved what BS, and the writers of XMEN 2 did. In fact, the people that hated X3 are pissed that Singer didn't stick around to finish the film. So there is precedent in believing that he can make a better movie. Will he? I have no idea, but I think he can. You disagree, and that's fine..But just don't presume to tell me that I'm not a fan of Superman.

Don't try to argue with the denialist, Pottie mouth will just say your gay or wants to fuck your dead grandmother. I have a bit more optimism about the sequel. Whatever that is said on this website they dont argue with the fact that WB sees Marvel make tons of money on their IP. Therefore they wont back down. Everyone even on this board will agree that Returns was better then Superman 3, 4, and most of the batman movies so in that respect I think that if they gave singer a chance he can hit it out of the park.

Returns back again in 2009! While Potty mouth cries to his mommy.

Ok, genius, first off I ONLY KNOW WHAT YOU POST. That is common-knowledge as far as the internets go. And since you posted it's no big deal what BS did to Superman, I again say with 100% confidence YOU are NOT a fan of Superman.

"And if you must know, I have a problem with the kid, with the darkness of the suit..and I had a problem with the xraying Lois in her home...But I don't let it ruin my enjoyment of a movie.

The suit was a mistake, but it's a mistake they can easily correct, as is the spying(just never have him do it again)."

So, making Superman ABUSE his powers isn't a big deal? Could you see Christopher Reeve's Superman doing that? Through the ENTIRE picture no less? Singerman ONLY used his x-ray vision on Lois. THAT is horribly creepy, and NOT Superman.

"Picking on Superman's costume is, to me, pointless as the costume has changed significantly through the years. I do wish it was brighter though..."

Ah, first line of "Defense" for an Apologist. Since this is a MOVIE we are discussing, and MOVIES are VISUAL, picking on THE visual that represents the character is 100% warranted. And since you are obviously NOT a Superman fan, you would know it has NOT "signifcantly changed" over the last 40 or so years. It has relatively stayed the same, with MINOR alterations. What BS and his bitch did was UNNECESSARY.

"You mention XMEN, and I do remember the uproar over the costume..I remember the fanboys screaming about Hugh Jackman, and now we can't imagine anyone else playing the part."

And don't expect the same thing from Singerman Peeps. See, and common-sense SHOULD have come into play here, the actual FILM alleviated people's concerns. They didn't hate it AFTER the fact. Singerman Peeps has been judged on it's merits, and it has been shown to be a FLOP.

"But I'm pretty sure that uproar has died, and almost every fan loved what BS, and the writers of XMEN 2 did. In fact, the people that hated X3 are pissed that Singer didn't stick around to finish the film. So there is precedent in believing that he can make a better movie. Will he? I have no idea, but I think he can. You disagree, and that's fine..But just don't presume to tell me that I'm not a fan of Superman."

Again, for clarity as I know you are slow, YOU are NOT a "fan" of Superman. You are a fan of BS, and an "Apologist".

Dismissed.

There you go, thank you for PROVING you are not a "fan". Just an idiot.

See, here's a lesson for you Junior: The Fleischer cartoons were made in the 40's. I said it has NOT changed in the last 40 YEARS. The 40's were 60 YEARS AGO. And Superman WAS red and blue when created, you fucking piece of dogshit.

And I hope someone OTHER than an idiot "Apologist" will correct me if I'm wrong, but did his paragraph just imply the Fleischer's CREATED Superman? As a CARTOON no less???

No...The Fleischer cartoons were based on the strip...

So by your brilliant reasoning everything done over the last 40 yrs means shit? And that only what you have read means anything?

There's a true Superman for you there folks. Completely ignores the beginning just to satisfy his arguement.

What a piss-poor attempt at twisting logic there, shithead.

See, YOU said the costume has "changed significantly" over the years as a way of justifying Singerman's lame appearance. I counter with it has NOT, but has had only minor changes the last 40 years. NOW you go back and say ONLY the first design matters? Sorry asshole, when someone counters YOUR argument, you CAN'T change it mid-way through. And since that piece of shit BS crapped-out on the screen looks NOTHING like the original, your "point" is STILL assinine.

Get an education, you fucking moron, before you turn out like that other asshole posting his bullshit here.
