S.S.S. just checking in folks, back from the sun and fun in the great state of California. (It's great when you have a job that let's you schedule business trips around major geek events.) I had the privilege of catching the weekend happenings at the San Diego Comic Con International. Between this and the Superman Festival in the span of a few weeks, I've had enough of awkward people in funny costumes to last me a good LONG time.
Anyway, as I expected, there was nary a mention of anything related to Singerman at the convention, which should seem odd to those who believe a Singerman sequel could hit theaters in Summer 2009. When you consider that The Dark Knight which is due out next summer, had just a few big announcements at last year's Con including the title and the casting of the new villain, you'd think that there might be something, ANYTHING, about a proposed sequel to Singerman to keep your core audience and media in the loop especially given the seeming back and forth stories we've been getting between the studio and those who suckle at Singer's teet.
I realize according to Alan Horn a few weeks back, they were still in the stage of waiting to see the next pile of crap that Singer would be turning in, but if they had any faith in the franchise or desire to keep it in the spotlight at all, this weekend would've been the chance to do something. They could've at least propped Routh up in a booth or something to give his usual schpiel about "all being well" as far as he knows. Lord knows, he's not doing anything else.
Apropos of nothing, they did have KICK ASS panels for Heroes and Smallville at the Con.
Oh and don't forget: BOOT SINGER, REBOOT SUPERMAN!!
