Say Goodbye to Routh Too

When it rains, it pours I guess. These past few days feel like that scene in the movie Goodfellas when all of the mobsters who were in on the Lufthansa heist start turning up dead. Only their crimes weren't as egregious.

Just days after we got news of what potentially could be Bryan Singer's demise as director of Singerman, comes word via the fine folks over at Latino Review that Brandon Routh is OUT as the "Man of Squeal" as well in any solo Superman films, and that the Superman from the Justice League film, when or if he's ever cast, will take over the role in any stand alone flicks that will thankfully have absolutely no relation to Singerman. The article reads:
Kelvin knew about Brandon not being the new Superman for weeksand weeks now, but made a promise to the DC people that he wouldn't break the story. Variety has now confirmed what we've secretly known for a while and Brandon Routh will be replaced in the stand alone sequel by whomever is cast as Superman in the upcoming Justice League of America movie.
If Singer is gone as is expected, then Routh getting the boot is basically just a formality. We pretty much thought that would be the case. Routh is, in effect, the ugly baby getting thrown out with the dirty bathwater. As I've said before, personally I have no issues with Routh. While his acting is a bit stiff, he wasn't the big issue here and might've been serviceable under better direction. He seems like a likeable enough person, but he's just too much a part of what Singer did and that's something that will never come off in the public's eyes. Any future incarnation of Superman with him in it would automatically be linked to Singerman and that's NOT a good thing in WB's eyes at this point. Best of luck in your future endeavors maybe now you can devote more time to campaigning for Barack Obama. Ugh.

Now as for this JLA Superman. The heat has been pumped up a notch. As we suspected, this role will be bigger than just one film or even the JLA series. This person will have to be able to star in the role in solo films as well. God help us all if WB thinks some schmeg like D.J. Cotrona is going to be able to hold up that burden. Your move, WB.

UPDATE 1/5/08: Here we go again, Now AICN is allegedly "debunking" this claiming that they've talked to one of their infamous "moles." I had a feeling something like this was going to pop up from someone else with a source. Honestly, I'm deferring to Latino Review and their previous track record until I hear otherwise. We all know AICN's track record for things Superman has been a bit sketchy at best. Remember Rupert Evans and Scott Porter? Stay tuned.

Vindication, thy name is Singer's Superman Sucks.

Latino Review is a BIG TIME "supporter" of BS and Singerman, so it will be interesting to see how the Apologists try to "discredit" this report.

My prediction: Bad spelling and lame "pokes" at JLA all over BlueNuts and the HomoPage.

What is going through Brandon Routh's head right now:

"Goddamn that faggot Singer. Why couldn't he make Superman a cool action flick so I could be like Tobey Macguire or Vince from Entourage."

I'll laugh my nuts off if they cast that DJ kid. Routh wasn't bad, even if he was a bit stiff. At least he looked the part and had the height.

If they're dumping the baby out with the bath water though, which is fine by me because I'd rather not be reminded of Singerman ever again, then I think their smartest recourse is to cast Welling. Smallville fans will drown out any remaining Singerman loonies, and they might drown out the Justice League nay-sayers too. If Warners were smart, they'd go for the win this time.

ApologistPuncher said...

I would be surprised if it wasn't Welling, to be honest. The last outside "hurdle" will be cleared up next week: Smallville will OFFICIALLY call it a season, which means Gough and Co. can go fuck.

When that happens, where will Younis go for his Singerman/JLA denials??

EmiJayne is already confirming that this is looking better than it was in November because of the strike cancelling out the rest of the Smallville season. She said, that he apparently knows that it's too late to avoid being typecast and is seriously considering it. She also said that her source said the deal is one that not many would turn down.

So, that has me stoked.

I'm no big fan of Welling, but compared to the rest of the alleged "candidates" we've heard so far he'd be a god send. They need at least 1 person who was in a movie that was #1 at the box office.

I see that sick fuck Younis is up to his old tricks, trying to string his idiot "posterbase" along:

"Thomspon, using words such as "unlikely" and "likely" in making the predictions above, doesn't reveal who her sources are for such information and is likely just stating her personal opinion."

See, Thompson espousing her opinion on Hollywood "rumblings" is LESS VALID than HIS. Nevermind that Hollywood IS HER LIVELIHOOD. See, AUSTRALIA is where it's at. NOTHING in Hollywood gets done without someone in AUSTRALIA being "in" on it FIRST.

How dare that dumb bitch give her opinions on things she has heard from people at WB?? I bet that cunt doesn't even have Gough on speed-dial!

Oh, and guess who has been posting here "anonymously" like the fucking sissy he is? Yep, that little bitch swright.

Check out the Jon Peters thread, where I give him a verbal "beating", and he had NO CHOICE but to admit I was RIGHT. These fucking hag's from the HomoPage give off a SERIOUS "fatal attraction" vibe to myself, and this Blog in general.

Oh, and apparently to the little 'mo, you here who post are "sheep". See, you "sheep" get to post WHAT you want, WHEN you want to. Which makes you "sheep". Unlike the First Amendment playground known as the Singerman HomoPage. See, in THAT paradise, you get BANNED for using the word "Singerman". You get to be harassed and called names by the Apologist fuckers while the "Mod's" turn a blind-eye. Unless you respond, of course. Then, you get the head bitch himself YOUNIS lying and deceiving the "regulars" to his shithole! "Sheep"? Not at the HomoPage. No sir!

Today will be a day LONG remembered. It has seen the end of swrights pathetic "charade", it will soon see the end of Singerman.

This just goes to show that Neal Fagley and Steve Eunich wouldn't know what's going on even if it bit them on the ass.

Time to take down your posters of Routh now Steve. Or I suppose he's still waiting for March 08 when Singer's sequel goes into production...

It's so pathetic, yet so funny, I nearly pissed my pants laughing at Steve Eunich and his sheep.

It's also so predictable because Steve Eunich is such a gutless sell out that the moment Welling is announced as the next big screen Superman, Eunich and Fagley will be falling all over themselves in praising the guy. What the sheep like Terminal and swright can't see is that site isn't about Superman, it's about making money and selling toys.

Hey, "superfag95", can your illiterate ass even READ ENGLISH?? How the FUCK do you call that "debunked"??

So, a PAID Singerman-backer like AICN says: "Well, someone super hush-hush A FEW WEEKS AGO said "Nuh-uh! BJ is maybe gonna possibly still play Singerman IF they decide to make a sequel. So that means it's gonna happen!"? And that is MORE reliable than VARIETY?

Are you going to base your PATHETIC "hopes" on a site that said the skinny midget from Hellboy was going to be Superman in JLA, butt-plug? And not only that, but use them as "proof" that Singerman isn't as DEAD as your fucking heterosexuality? Guess what? Just like with the JLA Superman bullshit they spouted, THIS ALSO will be proven incorrect.

And you will still be a $.25 anal whore. Just without a Singerman sequel, or an ounce of self-respect.

This is nothing more than a typical superquick cover-up after some people in the know spilled a bit too much info to the outside world!

Those sites are running wild 'cause WB didn't wanna put Routh in that akward "He got fired!" position right now. He's prolly negotiating another filmdeal or whatever he does these days and such news will pretty much kill every offer he got (and it won't be that many anyways).

Singer on the other hand is going wild with "the Loony Cruises" and will soon suffer his first real bomb at the BO! If anyone thinks shooting a Nazi movie starring Tom Cruise is a good career choice (at least nowadays) really needs to get his head checked! If it wasn't for the crappy Singerman film, WB would
distance themselves just because of that from Singer!

FACT: Singer is gone and so is the direct sequel and everyone else who worked on the project!

Since neither AICN nor LR are in a position to reveal their sources, it's hard to be sure. LR seems to be retracting their post on the strength (if that's what you want to call it) of AICN's report, not because they've heard something new.

AICN's source is supposedly someone at WB. If it's someone's assistant while LR's source is, say, DC's Paul Levitz, you tell me who's more believable.

I don't see how the franchise can be rebooted if Routh's still the headliner though.

BTW, none of this really addresses what was reported by Variety. It'll be interesting to see how the Apologists wiggle out of that one...

Watch, after the January 31st episode, "the Felcher" will "all of a sudden" have POSITIVE things to say about Smallville.

He won't be BLATANT, but say things like: "Best episode in 3 seasons" and "Welling is starting to become the Man Of Steel right in front of our eyes". On top of that, the troll fag Younis will start distancing his HomoPage from Singerman. Why? Because he is a huckster and a clown.

Never forget, Australia WAS colonized with prisoners. Rapists, thugs, con-artists, scum. Pretty much the entire Younis clan.

They HAVE to get Welling. He IS Superman at the eyes of most fans and he's the only actor that can make the Superman franchise competitive again and bring in box office numbers that can rival those of Spider-Man which is what Warner wants.
Hopefully this time those morons that run Warner Bros. will listen to the fans and do ANYTHING to get Welling.

Tragically that is where i think this is headed SSS. If Welling is not going to do it then i think WB wants to 2 things here. Young and cheap. They probably will look to cut corners wherever they can given how much money they just pissed away on Singerman.

I wouldnt quite take that as a retraction. They're basically saying that they heard Routh was out a month ago but things in Hollywood can change so if AICN talked to someone more recently, than its possible things might have changed. AICN is really tough to judge. They're very hit and miss on a lot of things, not to mention the total suck-up job that Quint did to Singer and Co. after his set visit.

I'm really not sure how good their WB sources are. They were "sure" that Rupert Evans was going to be the JLA Superman a few months back. They also made similar statements about Scott Porter, neither of which came to pass obviously.

The funny thing is. no one has tried to counter what the Variety Editor said about Singer. They've all attacked the LR report, but if Variety is right and Singer is out, there's no way in hell Routh is coming back. They're too peas in a pod.

not sure where you got that info about Al Gough? but I'm pretty sure thats not going to happen.

Anonymous said...

Gough's involvement stems from Infamous Emijayne who has been posting on IESB, and has a pretty good track record so far.

Funnily enough, Sanchez has completely abandoned that discussion and it's posters.

It appears (if it can believed) that Welling is back in negotiations, and part of the deal will involve Gough's participation in production.

It can't be hard to imagine Gough reminding folk that the JLA steamroller may have started as far back as Aquaman appearing in Smallville, and the subsequent Green Arrow through to the Junior Justice League episode in season six.

Anyhow, it's hard to ignore Returns coming and quickly fading into obscurity whilst Smallville kept being renewed and renewed and renewed. That's my theory as to why there is so much hatred aimed at Smallville on certain websites by wannabe authors. They simply backed the wrong pony and too much water has flowed for them to admit it. Smallville has it's flaws to be sure, but to ignore Return's blunders, Routh included, and try to force it down people's throats as some sort of "thinking person's" version of Superman is laughable at best.

Personally I think Transformers success for it's budget highlighted how out of control Singer was. If anything I'd be surprised if Singer would be handed another mega budget picture for a long, long time after what transpired. Nevermind his poor concept, storyline, casting and visuals, Singer simply ran amock with a seemingly open checkbook certain that he had a major box office success on his hands. You don't win many brownie points in Hollywood for filming multimillion dollar sequences that wind up on the cutting room floor. And the fact that they were all sent back to shoot the machine gun sequence at the studios request so there would be some action into the film demonstrated very early on, before the film was even finished that the suits at Warners had a feeling that their decision to hand the Superman franchise to Singer was turning out to be risky.

I'd be very interested to know how Smallville sells on DVD compared to Singer's turkey.

"Gough's involvement stems from Infamous Emijayne who has been posting on IESB, and has a pretty good track record so far."

In an interview a few months back, Miles Millar basically laid out the rough plot of what a SV-based Superman film would be like. It'd use elements of the President Luthor storyline within the basic SV framework. Superman would have to take Luthor down, Lex would sic other heroes and the military on him and destroy his reputation, etc. If that's the model Gough and Millar would follow for an SV-oriented Superman film, it'd have built-in action scenes and I sure can't see it being any worse that Singerman vs. the Krypto-island or the 3rd and 4th Reeve flicks.

That sounds SOOOO much better than what we got with Singerman. If you'll recall, one of the early episodes in Season 1 of SV showed an old woman's vision of President Luthor, followed by apocalypse. Certainly with the kinda budget Singerman had THIS plot would've raked in box office gold. Who knows, maybe it's not too late. If WB will get their act together & develop common sense & LISTEN to the fans for ONCE, I say reboot with this very concept or something like it. Get Welling & Rosenbaum locked in for the franchise & do whatever tweaking is necessary. IF WB cares about a successful franchise, that is.

be careful of putting too much stock in what you read on messageboards. Far too many people have agendas.

I must've gotten 150 emails after the initial IESB Welling fiasco about this "Emijayne" person, and then again when some of the other JLA casting news broke. He/She seems to only ever have a "scoop" after some other place breaks news first. I don't think I've ever been sent something she said that wasn't piggy-backing off of someone else's news story.

Now again, I dont frequent messageboards, so I may totally be off base with my assessment. What has this person been correct about in the past regarding JLA or Superman?

ApologistPuncher said...

"AP your stupidity even surprises me.

See how "superfag95" CAN'T read or comprehend a statement, then turns around and calls the original poster "stupid"? Here's what I said:

"This little peter-puffer reminds me of Homer Simpson. You know, the character from the animated movie that REtard predicted would "bomb"?"

Now, here is the PROOF that The Simpsons Movie was in FACT a HUGE SUCCESS:

Production Budget: $75 million
Domestic: $183,135,014
Foreign: $342,662,301
Worldwide: $525,797,315

So WHO, in FACT, was correct? Yep, that would be me yet AGAIN. I have fucked up this little asshole so much, I feel like his father.

Now, the little faggot comes with this:

"---How are you so sure Joker wont be broke back batman. The lastest pictures of bale with a yellow belt brings B&R to mind. And until the movie is released who can say. People on this decript site thought Spiderman 3 was the second coming."

Now the WEAK attempt at continuing his "BrokeBack" bullshit after the trailer convinced EVERYONE, he brings up Spiderman 3. Well, since his first point was about Singerman "beating" The Simpsons Movies domestic total, while gettting shit on by almost $200 MILLION altogether, let's take a look at this:

SPIDER-MAN 3
Production Budget: $258 million
Domestic: $336,530,303
Foreign: $554,341,323 Worldwide: $890,871,626

Looks like Spiderman 3 took a big fat dumpsky on Singerman's total, and blew a load on top for good measure. So if Box Office is ALL that matters, per your own 'mo "logic", "superfag95", Spiderman 3 was a MASTERPIECE.

And it DEFINITELY was better than Singerman Peeps. Give me a disco-dancing Peter Parker over a pedophilic, creepy, Retard's dad-like peeping-tom ANY day of the week.

Gotta disagree with you here, Spiderman 3 was just as bad a Singerman that fucking sucked. It only made so much thanks to the great quality of the first 2, while Singerman just sucked on it's own with nothing coming before it.

Nope, they BOTH sucked. Only one sucked worse than the other.

Spiderman 3 shows WHERE the budget went at least. Lots of CGI characters, lots of action set-pieces. Show me WHERE in Singerman the $200 million dollar budget is validated?? The crappy "fly by" shots of an OBVIOUS CGI BJ? What action beats were there compared to Spiderman?

Spiderman 3 felt rushed, cramped and a let-down. Singerman Peeps was offensive, imasculating and BORING. You might think they both were bad, but you can't say they were the same. Which one of the two had a FAITHFUL costume?

Well, she reported that what is happening now with SR would happen OVER a year ago. Could she have been a great guesser, yeah. But, the situation, as she laid it out then, is eerily similar. She was also the first to report that there was even a JLA script. She was the first to report Tom being the front runner.

The thing is, she doesn't have her own site. So a lot of times only those that have seen her post on the forums know that she reported it before them. She's not a glory hound either. She hates Singer with a passion (so I would guess it's a safe bet that she comes here from time to time) and hated SR.

Even if it didn't, it would've been obvious where the budget had gone. Rosenbaum and Welling couldn't really demand *too* much money and the gist of that plot oozes action sequences aplenty. Even if the movie had tanked, it would've been a real Superman film. I could've lived with that.

To be fair to swright, he is over there trying to convince the sheep (the biggest being Terminal of course) that Singer, Routh and the sequel are dead in the water.

Typically, after Younis and Bailey have gone out of their way to fool the sheep into thinking otherwise, it's left to swright to tell the truth of the matter.

They've got much more to worry about, like that site being reported to the Australian Advertising Standards/Australian Association Of National Advertisers for alledgedly breaching the AANA Code For Advertising To Children.

He really should've checked what pop ups are linked to his Superman site

Uncle Bingo said...

LR is much closer to the truth than AICN. Singer is gone, he's basically signed on with UA full time now. He wont do any further Superman movies or even WB movies for the foreseeable future. Details of settling his "pay or play" deal with WB are being finished up. With that, Routh, Spacey, Bosworth and Co as well as the pseudo-Donner continuity are all gone with him. WB wants nothing further to do with that continuity. They want a complete reboot that stays truer to the post-crisis comics and will put butts in the seats (i.e. more action). They're paying attention big time to how the new Hulk does this summer as a barometer.

As for the new Superman, LR was right that it will likely be the guy that plays him in JLA, provided of course, that movie has the right profit %'s going for it. Welling was the original choice and some expected a deal to be made (right around the time IESB broke the story) but he couldn't get out from under the thumb of the show's producers, even though they were offered compensation, so he was nixed. A second candidate was agreed upon in some capacity shortly before the WGA struck. Its one of the other rumored names you've all heard (that I cant mention at risk of completely outing myself since very few people know this suffice it to say its a BAD choice). There was even a set casting announcement scheduled around Thanksgiving.

However once it became evident that the WGA strike was going to go for the long haul, this actor then in effect became "Plan B." The studio now wanted to play a waiting game to see how long the strike would last b/c if it goes past a certain point, Welling then shakes free of his commitment to the Smallville producers and WB feels they can snag him for the role in JLA and perhaps beyond without having to pay the Smallville producers a cent.

The whole delay in a casting announcement for JLA, which is now a little over a month away from beginning filming, is due to WB waiting to see who their Superman is going to be. "Plan B" guy is all set and ready to go and has even been on a training regimen and fitted for a costume at WETA. However, WB REALLY wants Welling because he's the more marketable name and has a large following the spans multiple demographics and will appeal to more fans.

The drop dead point for Smallville to cancel the rest of their season is fast approaching in the next few days. (Obviously the strike isnt ending anytime soon so thats more a "when" than an "if" at this point). Once that happens, Welling and the rest of the cast become free agents for the duration of the strike or if the strike ends than until late next July when an 8th Smallville season would start, giving Welling ample time to film the movie.

Granted, they still need to sign him once Smallville goes into hibernation but iIve been told WB isnt messing around and has a big time offer out there for him, as well as offers for other films to help alleviate any type-casting concerns. From what I was told, "he'd be an utter fool, to say 'No' that that."

latin review huh? that sounds like fine journalism there. really. i can't take someone as latin review seriously. just look at the title. it doesn't really scream credible journalism now does it.

in all honesty though i had no problem with singer's take on superman. far better than donner's and miles above smallville. but then i fear i'm not young enough for the target audience of smallville so i never got into.

plus they messed with the mythos of superman with that lois lane stuff. as for jla, that movie doesn't seem to be having a good start and i think it may end up horribly bad. lest we forget catwoman.

it could be that all this is true, but until something more concrete i'll take this as another internet rumor. and the internet is more infected with internet rumors than paris hilton is with stds.

Looks like BS didn't learn ANYTHING from his FAILURE with Singerman Peeps:

""Valkyrie," the movie about the failed 1944 assassination plot to kill Adolf Hitler, has already cost United Artists between $90 million and $100 million, sources tell me.

That’s why UA was so eager to cut a deal with the Writers Guild over the weekend and get back to work. Still pending on this film — which no one in their right mind actually wants to see — are a number of big reshoots as well as a huge battle scene that hasn’t been shot yet.

It makes you wonder what they spent the $90 million on so far? Tom Cruise’s eye patch?"

Hollywood is going to learn the hard way that you CAN'T trust BS to control his spending urges.

People like AICN bitch about how Fox treated BS, but maybe they were on to something? They were on his back, pulling back on the reins when he started to get out of control. On top of that, his notorious need to "live it up" while shooting films doesn't help. By doing what they did, what happened? He made two "decent" superhero movies. When given "free reign", what has he done? Blew MILLIONS on USELESS scenes that ended up on the cutting-room floor, & made a SHITTY Singerman film.

When Valkyrie does sub-par at the BO, expect the end of BS' big budget directorial opportunities for quite some time.

I'd take Smallville's Lois Lane 100times over the 15year old thay had as Lois on the movie.....Introducing lois Lane was the salvation to smallville whic was becoming a vomitive with the Clana....still si but now I have Lois Lnae to look forward the epsiodes

um, donnor only had two supermanm movies. and only one to his name. as the second superman movie has him as uncredited. as for being apologist, ok sure. you know me well. point being, i like what i like and there's no shame in that at all. hell i love speed 2: cruise control.

even worse i am a huge edie brickell fan. my taste in music and movies differs from others a lot, but i don't care. if's that the definition of an apologist than ok. this site is interesting to say the least. and there is a lot i could comment on, but i really don't see the point.

it will just end up in a back and forth typing match. so i'll say that i've got no problem with anyone's dislike of superman returns. i can understand why some ravage it and hate it so. i myself have never been a dc fan much and don't really care for superman or any of their other characters, especially batman.

but i can say that i did like batman, i did like batman begins, and i enjoyed superman returns. it certainly not the highest of art, but comic book movies it manages to rise about a lot of the crap comic book movies that have come.

lest we forget catwoman, the original fantastic four movie, both punishers, batman forver, batman and robin, elektra, ghost rider, etc. you get the point.

as a firm reader of marvel comics i can say that superman returns didn't totally outright suck. it got me reading superman comics and that alone is something.

to many here superman returns may be the worst pile of shit made. but if jla turns out the way it is shaping up i think a bigger pile of shit is on it's way.

Ah, showing how fucking STUPID you really are, shithead. Way to ignore me kicking your ass in regards to the Donner SUperman too, bitch.

But here's some MORE knowledge for your ignorant ass:

Does it say he directed ALL of the Mad Max films? You know, some of the BEST and ORIGINAL action films EVER? Well, let's forget about those and focus on what your pea-brain wants to "justify" your stupid ass ASSUMPTIONS. Fucking idiot.

"oh and what the hell is homopage and bluenuts? i've seen that all over this page, but i don't even know what it is? it is slang for something or what? a joke that i'm not in on?"

Nope, it's a joke you are PART of. Don't come here "feigning" ignorance, you Apologist twat. How many posts a day do you make at the HomoPage and BlueNuts combined? 1,000? Talking about how "Tha JLA is gunna be a tranewrek" and "branden routhe is superman! wb is stoopid for get in rid of him!".

i don't make any. i never heard of those places. i stumbled onto this site when doing a search on the new x-files movie and came across the news of routh being out of the superman movies on rotten tomoatoes. i did a search and found this site. i find the site interesting, if not new. one gets a deju vu feel here, but that's cool. and how can i be in on a joke if i don't even know what the joke is. but then posting on this site i imagine lends one to getting kick me signs put on their back.

as for george miller i don't care how many mad max films he made. he also made the two films i mentioned which are absolute garbage. i'm not apologizing for jla. it may be good. it may not. it's shaping up so far to be bad. and knowing dc's history with comic book movies there's a damn good chance it will be bad.

funny how there are many labeled apologits for liking superman returns (much less defending it, which i haven't done at any point. yet everyone seems to be doing the same thing with the jla movie and it's not even out yet. it's absolutely amazing what one will find when doing searches on the net. maybe the intnert is the new dude with the end is near cardboard sign after all.

Some little moron is reading his Apologist Playbook step-by-step, isn't he? NO ONE is "defending" the JLA film, fucker. WE DON'T KNOW ANYTHING YET. But you, being a mongoloid asshole, you assume that you do. Yet you fucks "defend" Singerman Peeps, a film ALREADY MADE, and ALREADY FLOPPED. We CAN rip the shit out of it, because we AREN'T "guessing". Since it's obvious YOU can't see the difference, maybe you should just kill yourself right now.

It would raise the National IQ if you did.

you're absolutely right. it did seem that there are a lot of jla apologists, but i stand corrected. i don't approve of george miller the same way that you don't approve of bryan singer. but i can't know how bad or how good a job it will be until i've seen.

so yes i do apologize for getting a lot of what i have said wrong. all it's done is gotten things off on the wrong foot. yes, i do like superman returns. and i well could be wrong on how good the film actually is.

i've been known to not have the greatest taste in movies so that well could be. so again i stand corrected. this is my sincere apology to my getting facts wrong and to what may be bad taste in movies. while i don't intend on killing myself (it is just a movie after all), i probably should re-evaluate my thinking now.

colors said...

Anonymous (if indeed that is your real name) one problem a lot of us have with Singerman is the Donner aspect of it. While many of us respect what Donner did back in the 70's, that's hardly the most relevant take on the character thirty years later. Singer has made it painfully clear that he's not a Superman fan, he's a fan of Richard Donner's more mythical take. That version was fine in it's day (although I'd argue how comics accurate it was even when it was released) but most of wants something a little more modern.

For myself, while I might prefer Tom Welling take up the cape, what I want is a Post Crisis-Superman film. I'm sick of the Silver Age, I'm sick of Donner and I'm sick of everyone (Bryan Singer in particular) acting like the Post Crisis years never took place.

As for how the headlining character in Bryan Singer's 2006 superhero film is not worthy of the name Superman (hence why most of us call the movie "Singerman"), I'm pretty sure AP has covered some of those issues rather nicely.

thanks colors for posting a nice and detailed reason why the movie sucked for you and everyone else without resorting to name calling and juvenile behavior. that actually does make sense. i personally don't care either on the silver or post crisis age debate, but i do think a lot of what they did post crisis was a disaster.

they started off on the right and did a great job (from what little dc and superman comcis i have read), but they dropped the ball with the death of superman and never really got a great footing until here recently it seems. the whole death of clark kent storyline was a mess and far worse than anything singer could do. sometimes i think dc shoots its own self in the foot.

uncle bingo said...

There is no planned delay in the schedule for JLA. IESB is just chasing the latest red herring. They've basically been put out of the "circle of trust" for the time being. The WGA strike has little to no impact on the film. Miller and Osborne will handle any rewrites that come up, without a credit for it of course, and they'll also hire "script assistants" if need be who aren't part of the WGA. Another reason you wont see a delay in the filming is that there's a potential SAG and Director's union strike looming this summer as well, so they need to finish shooting by late June.

The "wheels of Justice" are in motion so to speak. Sets are being built, people are getting prepped, actors are still being signed. Some second unit stuff is starting to happen.

No updates on the big "hold up" that I talked about in my last post. Still a waiting game there but its likely a formality at this point as the WGA continues to shoot itself in the foot.

I see that bit made its way to some corners of the web as well. Why post it here? Well, for one I enjoy the site and its intended purpose, even if the commentary is at times lude and crass at best.

Secondly, not to many will take it seriously enough to post on the big news sites which doesn't risk jeopardizing things going on at the moment unlike our "friend" Mr. Sanchez who's REALLY worn out his welcome. I can also help shed some light on things but not take the heat that comes with it since this is one of the few sites that allows anonymous posting and can't track an IP.

They are so used to being coddled at all the lame "fansites", allowed to verbally assault Realists without nary a word from the "Mod's". So when they come HERE, fat-heads swaying in the breeze, I do my job and show them that:

FWIW, it's patently obvious to me that he's gone, forever, and so is his franchise. So that's good. Well, I think it is.

Anyhoo, onto the next film. What's your perspective on the solo Superman films? I understand they probably want to go with whomever they cast for JL, but I'll be honest with ya when I say my faith in that film happening is pretty low. If it's a sure thing, why don't they at least announce it? I get the casting hold up, but if Miller is definitely on board and the film IS happening, why not say so officially? *scratches head* Color me impatient. :(

And at the risk of being pelted with tomatoes - 'cause I don't know what the prevailing opinion is here, but I *re-heeely* want to see Welling take over as Supes.

We pretty much agree that Welling would be 1,000X better than BS' boy-toy BJ. He deserves to wear the tights, and would be a FOOL to turn it down. With the rumors of an "unkown" cast running rampant, that would turn it into Tom Welling's JLA. And that ain't not bad.

Jesus, just thinking about the story BS told regarding the first time he met BJ is gag-inducing. Why didn't he just say he was in love with the guy and be done with it?

Ah, I knew I could count on the homo "superfag95" to make himself look STUPID. And not posting at other sites? You are a FUCKING LIAR, and you KNOW it.

The film is about the ASSASSINATION ATTEMPT. NOT about the lives of the General's who FAILED. Since they were German and not American, that was inevitable. But it's beside the point what "superfag95" is going off about, when even his fag ass CAN'T justify a budget ALREADY over $100 million dollars. I guarantee Valkyrie makes AT MOST $120 million domestically, and that is being GENEROUS. $75-80 is more realistic.

And we ALL know that the French were too busy sucking the S.S.' cock's, along with Mussolini's men, to do anything like what they tried, and we did over there. I hear the "men" in France were MORE THAN WILLING to bend over frontwards for their Nazi overlords. Seeing as how the "women" over there look like males anyway, them shithead Nazi's could care less.

Spielberg finished War of the Worlds in only 3 months I believe. HE shot all the special effects sequences first to get them to ILM as quickly as possible. That movie came out in June, and he started filming it in October. So, it can be done.

"C'mon SSS, you know us fanboys don't use reason, critical or logical thinking. We see something we like and run with it."

LOL!

True enough... The commentary on here is so funny, but SSS shouldn't have been surprised. Any hint of MOS dying a deserving death will bring out the apologists to try and protect their precious franchise.

Truth is Singerman is dead and Singer has gone onto greener pastures at UA. I don't believe he'll make another film at Warner Brothers and with Singer goes his vaguely Donner-esque continuity.

Thank GOD!

Why the hell anyone thought it was a good idea to dredge up pre-crisis Donner films as fodder for a current Big Blue franchise, I'll never know but thank Rao that they've finally seen reason.

Why it had to take Singerman performing so pitifully to get them to realize making a new Superman film be based, even loosely, on a nearly 30 year old franchise was a very bad idea...

Love Reeve but getting a post-crisis superman film is what they should have done to begin with

Crapping on what Christopher Reeve had accomplished was NEVER a "good idea", and smacked of unoriginality. Trying to create a Superman for TODAY by ripping off the Superman from 30 YEARS AGO was stupid, and the end results PROVE this.

Yeah but we did not know the extent to what was going to be done to that legacy in Singerman. From what i saw most fans thought spinning off of Superman 2 of sorts was an interesting approach and a returns story sounded pretty cool but it was mishandled badly. I have no doubt a better script, cast and overall direction could have paid proper homage to the Reeve films and moved the series in a new exciting direction, Singer just blew it but it could have been done.

I was against it from the word 'go'. Bryan Singer signing on to the project didn't thrill me but my trepidation increased when it came out that it would be more Silver Age/Donner bullshit. I love Superman in general but my preference is, was and will always be the Post Crisis-era. If one *must* introduce Silver Age'ish stuff, SV is the way to do it.

From the start, I believe most Superman fans wanted something brand new (ie, not Donner, STAS, Smallville, L&C or anything else) or, lacking that, a Smallville-tie in would have been perfectly acceptable (ideal even for some folks).

The neurotic, unoriginal, Donner-beholden hackjob that was released is hardly what most of us wanted.

If we'd been given a modern Superman film which respected the characters and history, blogs like this one wouldn't even exist.

Hey it is me buggs from Superherohype. I hated SR from the get go after I saw that stupid suit. A lot of people there have accused me of being the creator of this site no matter how many times I have told them I am not, but would love to shake the hand of the person who did. I am also the person who coined the "Garden boots" term, as well as calling the apologists "The Excuse Crew" because they always have an excuse for everything. They used to claim that SR was loved on IMDB. So I went there and found out 90 percent of the user comments were negatvie to hateful of SR. Mentioned it and another excuse came up-"Only people who hate films post in the user comments there". Funny, even though that does not happen on other films. This is my first post here and I am sure more will come.

I would also like to say that Superman The Movie is my favorite film of all time. Donner and Mankelweitcz got the legend pre-crisis. They got the character of Superman and Lois. And, they got Chris Reeve, who in my mind, will stil be the definitive Superman 40 years from now. SR was a piece of crap maskerading as a sequel. I can only watch the opening credits of "Singerman Lifts" and that is it. It sucks that Singer tried his craptastical film to the Donner films, but ignored many things, including the heart of the characters, and what Superman is about to satisfy his peeping tom, stalker, I am a loner because I was adopted and gay bullcrap. Singer, you suck!

I feel bad for Routh too. With the weight and build that he had in a pic I saw of him in 2003 when he was first rumored for the role, and a real Superman suit, story and director, he could have been a great Superman. It sucks that Singer has made him the George Lazenby of the Superman actors.

Anonymous said...

Routh's suit DID have some muscle padding despite whatever build he may have had. The biceps, shoulders, and upper thigh areas were padded.

On some of the lifting scenes, if you freeze frame them, you can see the shoulder padding at odd, un-natural angles.

Too, Routh's skinny neck sticking up out of that suit is a dead give away. When you lift weights and bulk up the upper body, the neck muscles thicken. It shows. Routh had a turkey neck throughout the film.

I'm not saying the guy didn't have any muscle, but the studio DID augment his physique with padding.

Reeve was all Reeve.

Anonymous said...

He is completely in a muscle suit. They show it on the making of DVD. When Singer and Warner's were saying Routh wasn't in a muscle suit, I made these pics to show he was. These pics were taken at Roughly the same time, and show the real Routh's arm versus the one in the suit, which is muscle suit:

And the pork chop padding where his ribs are, which real ribs don't look like in a tight suit:

Sandy Collora was the first one who outed the muscle suit.

And next time you want to report on a supposed departure of either Routh or Singer (neither of which has been confirmed), read the entire article, all right?

triplet said...

For me, I always thought harking back to Reeve's films was a bad idea. I said as much at the time over on the hype and I said it loudly as I could and in as many places as possible.

The casting and the script details as they leaked out further increased my dread of what Singer was going to be presenting to us.

A 21 year old Lois, who was supposed to be a pulitzer prize winner and also had a 5 year old kid, and a man three inches taller and probably 50 pounds heavier than skinny ass BJ playing Perry White were very, very bad ideas...

Then he put Marlon Brando in as Jor-El?

*shudders*

God, that was creepy as hell...

I think the only reason Singer did that was because Russell Crowe wouldn't take the part.







To explain that comment, as a side note:

About the time SR was casting, Crowe made an oblique comment in an interview that movies didn't mean anything to him if they had spandex wearing characters and mostly entailed blowing things up.

I guess Virtuosity took a more serious toll on his psyche than he'd previously admitted, but I didn't think it was a coincidence parts of the film were filmed within easy driving distance of his farm in New South Wales...

Although I don't know for a fact that he was offered the part of Jor-el, which if he had been he no doubt turned down once he read the complete dreck fest, Crowe's comments and the Kent farm location being so close to his beloved ranch always did make me wonder if he were...

BHoward1 said...

"Crowe's comments and the Kent farm location being so close to his beloved ranch always did make me wonder if he were..."

WOH!!! well I wouldn't be suprised.

Anonymous said...

Russell Crowe as Jor-El? That's interesting because I remember the rumor about another Aussie playing that character, Huge Jackass, er Hugh Jackman.

It's one thing to make Returns a continuation of the Donnerverse, but he couldn't even do that without fucking it up royally. Where was the basic continuity? Lois went from spelling like our own Retard, putting two "p"s in "rapist, to being an award winning journo? Superman spoke in words he'd already said much better 30 years ago.

It was all a huge mess. And a bore.

Singer then tried to rationalise the debacle of a film he'd made by saying it was "for girls" What the fuck did that mean? How would a gay man appreciate what "girls" want in a movie anyway? Then to save further embarrasment he promised there would be more action in the second movie. Talk about an admission of failure.

Anyone still clinging to the notion that Returns was some sort of intelligent take on the Superman story has rocks in their head. As do those who believe the rubbish put about by Robert Sanchez, Steve Eunich & Neal Fagley.

Thank God it now seems clear that Warners were as impressed with this multi million dollar farrago as most of us on here....being Bye bye Singer, and take your toyboy non actor Routh with you.

SSSSucks, how can you claim to have "no issues" with Routh when you continue to bash him, the film, and its director without fail?

Bashing Singer and SR is not the same as bashing Routh, except perhaps in your feeble mind where you're unable to separate them. This site may have poked fun at Routh on occasion, but SS has always said his issues with SR were much bigger than Routh's mediocre Reeve impersonation.

"Any future incarnation of Superman with [Routh] in it would automatically be linked to [Superman Returns] and that's not a good thing..." Yeah, whatever.

Is this what passes for a rebuttal over on BlowTights nowadays?

You're an idiot. Michael Gough was Alfred in all the films that were a part of the same franchise. Notice once they rebooted the Bat franchise with Batman Begins, he WASN'T in it?? As for the X-Men, their struggle for acceptance has been a component of their story for 40 friggen years, of course its going to show up in every movie thats not some unique connection to the first movie, although all of the X films are part of the same franchise. As for the Superman music, that was all another part of Singer's unabashed love letter to the Donner movie and a lack of creativity on his and Ottman's part. You didnt see Hans Zimmer copying Danny Elfman's Bat theme for Begins did you?

And next time you want to report on a supposed departure of either Routh or Singer (neither of which has been confirmed), read the entire article, all right?

It makes me feel sick having to see that photo of Bryan Singer everytime I click on the blogger link to this article. I enjoy shit canning the guy, but I don't want to have to look at him. I shouldn't say this but he looks a bit gay. Is that too harsh? I suppose those who think Returns is the thinking mans superhero film also believe male sodomy is the thinking mans sex act.

What is he wearing? A Trek outfit? That'd be fuckin right, the uber geek. Perhps JJ Abrams needs a hand fuckin up that franchise, and of course Singer's a master of franchise fuckin-upping!

I know. But as soon as I saw that suit in 2004, I realized that I might make a difference for change. Then I realized that it was too late, and Singer was pulling his "The same thing happened when I changed the X-Men suits and look how that turned out". But I vowed to maintain a presence there, even when I was in the minority with a select few bashing Stinker, I mean Singer, and everything SR. I wanted to get the word out that it sucked and the WB would be stupid to do a sequel. Thankfully now, the "excuse crew", especially that dipshit El Payaso, are in the minority. I did find out one of his tricks there. He would purposely get you riled up, then when you defended yourself and shoved it back in his face, he would run crying to any and all mods on the board at the time. He got me temporary bans twice for pulling that trick. The last time he did that, I got a temp ban for something he had done to me multiple times. Now, if I see any of the apologists pulling any bullcrap, I go straight to a mod. And the thing is, it doesn't matter. There wont be a sequel so WE WIN!

Bailey- "As many of you know, I've quietly campaigned for the JLA film for months now. I'm so punk rock. The Singer film just wasn't my cup of tea and I think a lot of fans feel the same way."

Lois in the film is OLDER than she looks. It's called (wait for it) playing a goddamn character. Kate Bosworth did the same thing in Beyond the Sea, playing Sandra Dee from her teenage years to well into her 30s. Believe me, she's far from the only actor to do so. Today's 20-somethings also look a lot younger than their given age. I'm in my late 20s and look like I'm in my late teens. Tom (SuperBOY) Welling is 30 but he looks 20.

Fearless prediction:

If that report from Dark Hozians is true WB is very afraid (and I’m pretty sure this is true) of anther box office bomb featuring their Superman character.

Anonymous said...

If WB wants to go with "Teen JLA", they should get Welling as Supes and Rosenbaum in a supporting role as Lex and only address some bits from "Smallville" and then create their own, new continuity out of it! They will have to create a new continuity anyway but at least this way, the audience would be there at the opening weekend 'cause they'd kinda knew what to expect.

I just don't understand how this stupid notion of "casting unknowns who can barely act in such huge roles" would help any project!? As a matter of fact, every successful superhero flick had at least one successful actor in one of the leading roles! Just because Reeve was a lucky match for his role 30 years ago, doesn't mean anyone can just repeat that!

Singer failed with the approach and Miller will fail with it too!

If the rumors are indee true ...

"Fearless prediction:

Yeah, I would rather have that than JLA right now! Batman is barely born again and Superman is dead again. The others don't even have a recent movie or tv show to back them in the general public's interest. So I'd rather watch a "Superman Begins" movie with Welling, Rosenbaum and Durance than some teenagers trying to play the Justice League.

Whether either actor nabbed either role is unknown, obviously, but this does put a whole new spin on the Superman situation... particularly since not tons of names were bandied about for that one.

Ah well, the movie's scheduled to enter production in February and Smallville's season will be cancelled on Jan. 18 if the strike isn't resolved before then (according to emijayne anyway). We'll have our answers soon enough, it seems.

Brilliant! It amazes me that Singer gets away with this horse shit. I say my prayers every night that he's now United Artist's problem.

Uncle Bingo, please keep us here at Singer's Superman Sucks updated. Your contributions are appreciated. Thank you!

I'm not sure how much more I can elaborate on that I haven't spoken about already.

I will however, clear up some misconceptions I see going around about certain things. Most of the casting rumors you've seen floating around are false and others are over-exaggerated. Some purposefully so, others take on lives of their own on the internet, as they often do. From what I've seen there's really only one legit name that all the lists have in "common."

Hammer is not, and never was, Batman. He screen-tested for a number of different parts but was never made an offer. Not sure how that rumor came to be, but some think it was people in another "camp" that put it out there to see if WB will flinch. Same goes with some of the other casting rumors that seem a bit far out.

You see a lot of times when a big project is coming together, people in the media or in other areas of the industry will help manifest wild rumor and speculation to rile a studio up in hopes that they'll reveal their hand earlier than intended. The thinking is that if they wont tell us freely then we'll MAKE them do it.

Some seem riled up about Jay Baruchel. He's not Maxwell Lord now, in high school, etc. Think about it. Why on earth would they do a flashback of Maxwell Lord like that? His role will be similar to what Kumar played in Superman Returns.

As for my first post, which has seemingly spread like wildfire. Nothing to add to it now. I will clear up one thing. While Smallville continues filming what's left of its season until mid to late January, once they pass the point in time where the show knows it wont get past that, the cast is free to begin negotiating. So things could be all wrapped up in a nice little bow before the Smallville directors yell "cut" for the last time.

And there's no truth to the rumor that the keys to the Superman franchise are getting turned over to Gough and Millar. After what went down at the end of the summer, their lucky they'll get to finish Smallville. Provided of course they're done picketing.

Thanks UB. we all appreciate the info.

Uncle Bingo -- what do you think about the info Emi Jane has been posting?

Also, can you comment on which roles are actually a lock right now and if there are any new names (obviously, I'm sure you wouldn't want to say who unless you could get away with it) that would surprise us in the roles?

How about all the crap Robert Sanchez is spewing about the film being delayed because of the casting issues? Understandably if you're right and he's "outside the circle," he would be getting BS -- but why would people in the circle feed him negative crap that they know he will just turn around and put on his site (and perpetuate a negative buzz about the film)?

Thanks for your input

I really wish everything "Uncle Bingo" posted were true, fact is though, anyone who treats his info as real inside dope really shouldn't.

His posts are well written, but its better to wait and see what happens after Smallville's season is really skewered by the writer's strike, and how much of his information pans out.

I mean no disrespect to "Uncle Bingo" whatsoever, but as SSS has pointed out, people who post what appears inside info sometimes have their own agenda, and sometimes it's nothing more than to yank your chain and laugh about it later.

I don't think anyone here is an idiot and doesn't realize this, I'm just saying...

"Oh, you crack me up. Do I have to subject you people to the Ludovico Technique to make you SEE what you're missing?

Lois in the film is OLDER than she looks. It's called (wait for it) playing a goddamn character. Kate Bosworth did the same thing in Beyond the Sea, playing Sandra Dee from her teenage years to well into her 30s. Believe me, she's far from the only actor to do so. Today's 20-somethings also look a lot younger than their given age. I'm in my late 20s and look like I'm in my late teens. Tom (SuperBOY) Welling is 30 but he looks 20.

That's cute, also..."skinny ass"? BR was as big as Reeve WITHOUT the muscle suit."

You know, you'd have to strap me down to a chair and fill me with drugs just to get me watch that train wreck ever again... Forget the "Ludovico" Technique.

As for Bosworth "acting" older, well youth wasn't her only problem.

Not only was her characterization of Lois flawed, she was far too passive, the writing didn't help her out any.

The only indications that Lois was a "tough as nails" investigative journalist were all in expository dialogue, her piss poor acting help out any...

And why the hell would a woman capable of writing an article that gets a Pulitzer actually drag her kid into danger the way that Lois did in SR?

Yikes...

I'm glad those hacks that wrote SR won't get their paws on another Superman film. Not only did they turn Clark into a mopey date raping stalker, they turned Lois, possibly one of the best fictional smart career women ever written, into a passive, flaky stupid mother who'd willingly take her child into danger...

Why anyone likes the SR version of Lois at all is completely beyond me. She's stupid and not at all worthy of Superman's love. Bosworth's Lois isn't Superman's soulmate and companion and confidente and friend... Frankly they had little or no chemistry on top of all the other prolbems with the film. If Stinker's aim was to make a thinking man's superman with some appeal to women, he needs to buy a fucking clue...

Not only was the film filled with stupid people, not even Lex was smart, but the romance stunk to high heaven...

Don't even get me started, I could talk about my problems with this film for hours... I could probably write a 100 page book on the problems just with the script.

Yikes...

What a pile of crap.

And don't even try to tell me that Routh is bigger than big as Reeve was.

NO FUCKING WAY.

Reeve didn't have to wear a muscle suit.

The fact that BJ did and still looked skinny as hell is all the proof you need..




You know, I think it's interesting that you suggest brainwashing to try and get me to see your way...

I might be interested, even getting strapped into a chair with my eyes held open like poor Malcolm McDowell in A Clockwork Orange, if you have a brainwashing technique that could scrub that dreck that is SR out of my memory.

"Why anyone likes the SR version of Lois at all is completely beyond me."

I can answer why the person you are responding to "liked" Singerman. She is a morbidly-obese PIG with a mind full of "fantasies".

She WISHES someone, ANYONE, would want her fat ass enough to "peep" on her. Let alone a BJ Routh. But she also wants that person to kick around and be a fucking cunt to, so she feels "in charge". You know, kind of like Bosworth's shitty Lois Lame? So this fat bitch will IGNORE how fucked-up Singerman is, instead of just admitting her blubbery ass has a crush on BJ.

That's the difference between men and women. I'll admit that if Salma Hayek is in a fucking train-wreck of a movie, I'll still see it if I know she gets butt-naked. Women? They don't want to admit to "animal urges", and instead twist things around in their mind so it's more "accetpable" for them to see a film JUST for the directors boy-toy. Which ALSO explains "superfag95".

Then again, I could be wrong about this, and right in my first assertation: "She" is a fucking tranny asshole PRETENDING to be "female".

Either way, it's a SAD 350lb LOSER.

Singer is making a movie with Tom Cruise, after making a movie with Spacey and Routh. All makes sense.

Cape fear: Superman still grounded
WGA strike proves Kryptonite to 'Man of Steel'
By ANNE THOMPSON

Could the WGA strike prove Kryptonite to the Man of Steel?

With the work stoppage playing havoc with studio slates, Warner's planned sequel to Bryan Singer's "Superman Returns" could be locked up in the Fortress of Solitude for some time.

No screenwriters are on board. "Returns" writers Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris opted out of penning "Superman: Man of Steel," and the strike arrived just as other scribes were to pitch ideas. Internally, Warners has moved the release date from 2009 to 2010.

After "Superman Returns" delivered a disappointing box office take of $386 million worldwide, Warner Bros. and Singer debated how to proceed with the next "Superman" pic. The studio even considered rebooting the franchise with someone else.

But eventually WB execs Alan Horn and Jeff Robinov agreed to proceed with Singer at the helm of a $170 million "Man of Steel" packed with more action, a super-powered villain and less romantic melodrama. Before Singer started production on UA's "Valkyrie," WB and co-financier Legendary Pictures closed a deal for him to produce and direct "Superman: Man of Steel."

According to a spokesman for the director’s reps at William Morris, "‘Superman’ is moving forward with Bryan Singer attached." But inside the studio, 'Superman' is not on any fast track, and word is that Singer may wind up not directing it.

Nothing is happening. The WB supervising exec on the project, Dan Lin, has moved over to a studio production deal; exec Lynn Harris is taking over.

For now, the next Superman auds will see on the bigscreen will not be Brandon Routh but a younger Superman among a cast of youthful DC superheroes in George Miller's "The Justice League." That movie likely will not be shot, however, until after the WGA strike is resolved.

So while Internet comic sites are rife with rumors about Warners replacing Routh with the new Superman from "The Justice League," the question of who plays Superman will depend on who directs Superman.

And with "The Mayor of Castro Street" also up in the air due to the strike and "Milk" going forward with Gus Van Sant and Sean Penn, Singer is looking for a another directing gig.

Just saw that on Variety myself.

Hopefully it's the studio being diplomatic about letting Singer go.

If the film isn't to be shot until after the strike, somebody better tell the folks at Fox Studios

buggs0268 said...

Yeah. The other thing I can think of is it is an agency thing. The agency looks bad when a client gets the boot.

Uncle bingo, what went down last summer? Everyone has been hinting on some earth shuttering incident but no-one is saying what really happened.

Rumor is that they wouldn't allow Tom to take off time from the show to film JLA.
