Bryan Singer: Still Fired AND Delusional


Hey there,

It's been a SLOW last few months, while we wait for WB to decide WHO they are going to let make the Superman "reboot". Over the last few weeks there have been a few interviews with BS, where he does his best "Stuttering John" impersonation when asked about Singerman: Madame Of Swish. It's apparent to ANYONE with an IQ over 25 that he KNOWS he is NEVER going to make another one, but WON'T just come out and say it.

Well, today there is this little "gem" from the NY Times:

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/14/movies/14harr.html?_r=3&pagewanted=2&ref=movies

I only posted the 2nd page, as the rest just talks about his flop-to-be "Valkyrie". What a STINKER that looks to be.....

"After nearly a decade of comic-book movies, “Valkyrie” might seem to represent Mr. Singer commanding himself to do something different. But he said: “I think my work has a real continuity, not in style but in theme. Themes of identity, principal characters who aren’t what they seem: that’s the X-Men, the boy in ‘Apt Pupil,’ Superman of course.”"

I think it's pretty apparent WHAT "theme" his movies have in common. From "Usual Suspects" to "Singerman Peeps", it is there, slapping you in the face. Why not come out and state it for ALL to see, Bryan?

"Mr. Singer’s next move is uncertain. A plan to direct an adaptation of Randy Shilts’s Harvey Milk biography, “The Mayor of Castro Street,” fell apart when Gus Van Sant’s “Milk” beat the project to the finish line. And Mr. Singer tenses visibly when asked about his potential involvement in a “Superman” sequel. “I really don’t know,” he said. Last summer Jeff Robinov, the president of Warner Brothers, told The Wall Street Journal that “Superman Returns” “didn’t quite work as a film in the way we wanted it to” and failed to “position the character the way he needed to be positioned.”"

I highlighted the two most IMPORTANT parts of this paragraph. Uncertain? "I really don't know"??? You mean, he is FINALLY starting to come clean about his non-involvement in WB's next move? Is he finally learning humility, and being honest about the situation and his failure with Singerman Peeps??

"Mr. Singer says his own love of Superman lore may have given the movie the weight of too much nostalgia — “I’m learning to introduce characters a lot quicker and more aggressively,” he added — but he is otherwise disinclined to second-guess his decisions or even revisit his past work."

What the fu...?? "love of Superman lore"?? Ahhh, well-played Mr. Singer. You sneaky-monkey. Here I was, thinking you were starting to be honest and upfront about things, and you do a complete 180!Superman's "lore" goes BEYOND a movie from 1978, genius. You think trying to copy THAT gave it "the weight of too much nostalgia"? Seriously? NOTHING ELSE was wrong with your suckfest, 'eh BS?

You can't even claim your "love" for the FAR SUPERIOR Superman The Movie had ANYTHING to do with your "film" tanking. You DESTROYED the costume that Christopher Reeve used to make us Believe. You gave us a pale imitation of Gene Hackman's campy Lex Luthor. You took Margot Kidder's tenacious, "spunky" Lois Lane and turned her into a bad wig wearing, 12 year old boy looking, whiney BRAT who was SUPPOSED to be a MOTHER!

I won't even MENTION you disgracing Christopher Reeve's memory by having that talentless plank of wood "pretend" to be HIS Superman.

Shame on you, Bryan Singer.

Eh, unfortunately I know people who think '78 is really all you need for mythos. Drives me crazy when the media itself doesn't seem to get past it as well.

Having Singer, considering he's one of those kind of people, admit(again) that he's out of Superman Movies is just pure win.

The douchebag Apologists can't get over their Donner chubbies either. Superman is not a movie, a comics character or, really, even a fictitious character anymore. He's an ICON. He transcends his own history, including Donner. Making a film that serves the MYTH rather than one specific movie was the OBVIOUS way to go to ANYBODY with two working brain cells.

Even so, it looks like Singer is still huffing that paint thinner.

Because this story DESTROYS his "theory" about BS making another Singerman TRAVESTY.

It's Frank Langella. He played the testicle-less "Perry White" in Singerman Peeps.

And yes, BS prefers underage boys. There is evidence and precedence for this, so no one can claim it to be an "insult" or the ever so popular strawman "gay-bashing".

Singer's Superman sucks and so does this blog.

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through WB's house
Not a sequel was stirring, not even of House;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that Superman soon would be there;
The executives were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Kryptonians flew through their heads;
And mamma in her cape, and I in my tights,
Had just settled down for a long winter's night,

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.

Away to the window I ran like the Flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But an old green Mustang, with windshield polished and clear,
With a flamboyant driver, giving me the finger,
I knew in a moment it must be Bryan Singer!

More rapid than eagles his boy toys they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;
"Now, BJ! now, Dan! now, Mike, yeah baby this is heaven!
On, Kumar! on Marsden! on, Donner and Kevin!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!"

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky,
So up to the house-top the boy toys they flew,
With the sleigh full of sequel pitches, and St. Singer too.

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little poof.
As I drew in my hand, and was turning around,
Down the chimney ol' BJ The Bartender came with a bound.

He was dressed all in spandex, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot;

A bundle of scripts he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack.

His eyes -- how they twinkled! his muscles limp as a sock!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose stiff like a... don't ask.

The stump of a pipe (I think) he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath;

He had a skinny face and in spite of the weather
wore not a coat, merely a cape made of pleather.

He was slight and lean, a right jolly old bartender,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself;

A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had something to dread;
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
unloading scripts, he then turned with a jerk,
And laying his hand inside of his pants,
I soon decided I could take no chance;
I sprinted 'cross the room to my weapons horde;
Thanks to Smith & Wesson, BJ would meet the Lord!
The Bartender then to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all fled like the down of a thistle.

But I heard them exclaim as they fled from the scene,
"We want one more chance, can't you see what we mean?"

I loaded my gun and took careful aim,
aware as I was that this was no game.

One by one, side by side, down they all fell.
The noise of the shooting breaking the spell.

As they lay writhing in such great pain,
and the police sirens nearer came,
The Bartender said with such a great cry
"Mercy, please, we only wanted one more try!"

Out the window I leaned and said to the doof
"Away with you now, everyone's sure you're a poof."

Then I pulled the trigger and shot the son of a bitch.

THIS, Ladies & Gentlemen, is called P-R-O-J-E-C-T-I-O-N.

"In psychology, psychological projection (or projection bias) is a defense mechanism in which one attributes one’s own unacceptable or unwanted thoughts and/or emotions to others.

Simple answer, genius:

SUPERMAN IS A FICTIONAL CHARACTER. FIC-TION-AL CHAR-AC-TER. I'M NOT SUPERMAN.

Superman will ALWAYS be #1 to me. The character has ever since I saw Superman The Movie as a kid. But he isn't the ONLY work of fiction that inspires me, or that I enjoy watching. I also like Rambo, but you don't see me strapping on a red headband and an M-16 do you? Hmmm, perhaps THAT'S where I take my lead when it comes to dealing with the Apologists.....

You can say I'm a "bad person" all you like. It means about as much to me as a cockroach thinking the same right before I squish it with my foot. You come here looking for trouble, trouble is what you'll find.

Ah, I take this to mean you are one of these idiots who thinks that ignoring the 3,000lb elephant in the room is the "proper" thing to do, right?

Bringing up the directors sexual orientation, which HE HIMSELF MADE PUBLIC, and his CHOICE of underage males is NOW an "attack"?? Are you shitting me, Einstein? Just because a person is homosexual does NOT mean their choices and mistakes are "off-limits". Quite the contrary when you are in the public eye.

That's the right attitude, my friend... Yes, there is a God. I didn't believe in God and stuff myself until I was struck by an overwhelming spiritual experience. And because of that i'm confident that WB will make the right decision in the end... Singer made the best superman movie we could have possibly hoped for, and so many innocent people were caught in the ridiculous feuding between fans that to me it'd only be proper justice if Routh and Singer returned to make another passionate work of art like the last one.

Fez said...

I hated Superman Returns as much as anybody but I have to give credit where it's due on Valkyrie, which was a fine film that validated why Singer's stature was once elevated to the point that he got to call all the shots creatively on his abortive attempt to resurrect the Supes 'chise. Believe it or not, Tom Cruise was actually good in the movie too! The one thing that's evident though is that Singer's reputation for being financially irresponsible may be well-earned because Valkyrie cost a pretty penny and it's hard to see onscreen where all of that money went, much like with SR which was the costliest film of all time and had no WOW! factor whatsoever.

Spare me. The prodution budget is (according to Box Office Mojo) $75 million.

Of course, that's speculative right now. Watch for it to go up.

Second, Singer's latest abortion has a $70 million marketing budget FOR THE US ALONE. For ease of math, those figures come out to $145 mill combined.

Films released during this time of year usually TOP OUT at $100 mill.

I'd ordinarily let you read between the lines on that one, but you're an Apologist and need everything spelled out for you. Assuming Valkyrie defies all odds and hits $100 mill, it's *STILL* $45 mill away BREAKING EVEN. We're still not talking about profit yet.

Take your pro-Singer ramblings somewhere else, Apologist. There's no way Mark Millar's ego can even BEGIN to touch your beloved Singer's ego issues.

In order for Valkyrie to make a "tidy little profit", jackass, it needs to gross AT LEAST $180 million DOMESTIC. $60 million? Doesn't even cover SHIT yet.

But hey, you assholes seem to DOUBT that Singerman Peeps FLOPPED at the Box Office, so your opinion doesn't mean jack-shit.

Anonymous said...

Actually if the budget including marketing is 150 then it only needs to pull in 300 WW for a profit.

It's all about perception. Valkyrie is considered a surprising success. It's budget is only listed at 75 million (not including marketing). All they have to do is point to that figure and they can say it made it's budget back. This isn't the same situation that Superman was in as it's production budget was ridiculous and it didn't even meet that number. Valkyrie will meet the reported number.

It won't make back any money domestically, but Tom Cruise movies typically make 3 times as much as much over seas. Valkyrie is a much tougher sale then a normal film of his, but history DOES show that he still has plenty of appeal overseas.

You mean if it's a success it would be considered surprising.

You're right though, it's all about perception. If you're a fan of Bryan Singer and his all gay cast and crew, your perception of the film is more positive.

There's plenty of apologists who still maintain "Singerman Returns" was a resounding success. Such a success it's beyond doubt now that it derailed Superman on the big screen and put the franchise into the wilderness.

"Actually if the budget including marketing is 150 then it only needs to pull in 300 WW for a profit."
What about marketing expenses overseas? If it's another $70 million (which it may well be), we're back to square zero. It would have to hit somewhere along the lines of $150 mill in non-US grosses before it can even be vaguely described as a "break even" proposition. Contrary to what the douchebag Apologists all think, Hollywood doesn't operate on the "shoebox" approach. A film has to punch its weight in both territories (significantly above budget in ALL territories).

If it exceeds $75 mill in the US, it'll be at best by a VERY slim margin. And when you factor in Valkyrie's promotional costs, the red ink will be flowing freely. If Valkyrie doesn't make it to at least $187.5 mill (2.5 times it's production cost) in the US, it'll be considered (at the very least) a "disappointment".

So don't break out the champagne yet, Apologist.

No it won't. Because, it was expected to be a huge embarrassment. People were saying that it would make 10 million it's first weekend, that it would end careers. Well, guess what? Not happening. I'm not saying that it's going to be considered a financial success, but the perception of the movie's success will be different because of expectations.

Huhhh....Ok. Yes, it will not make back it's money (I'm not really arguing that), BUT the perception IN Hollywood is that it's a surprise success. That's all I'm saying. Not saying it's a juggernaut or anything. It's also NOT the career killer that everyone was hoping for...

Superman Returns made a very very very tiny profit, but it is considered a failure, and rightfully so. But, if this movie makes a tiny profit or gets close to it at all it will seem like a success.

It's not a financial Loss yet. It still has to open up overseas where Tom Cruises movies, on average, make triple what they make in the states. All you have to do is read all the reports out of the hollywood trades about the surprise of it's opening weekend and it's staying power. NOBODY expected this movie to make 50 million domestically.

The production budget was 75 million. It's going to pass that this weekend. Again, i'm not saying this movie is going to make a shit load of money, but the outlook and expectations for this movie were the complete opposite of Superman Returns. So, it will be judged differently.

Everyone here expected this movie to destroy both Singer and Cruise's careers. And, if anything they are talking about how Tom can still bring in the fans (even if it's not like it used to be). Nobody in Hollywood is talking about Singer never working again because of this movie.

Fuckin scientologists never give up. Nearly as bad as apologists.

We heard you the first time asshole, but again no, nobody is talking about Singer never working again.

Although I'm sure after his last two movies being UNDERwhelming, there's plenty of talk about him being offered smaller pictures...or TV.

Whatever "Valkyrie"s piffling returns, it's NOT a "surprise success"

Yeah, and when 2009 comes to a close, watch him keep pushing the year back. The loser clearly knows he's got nothing and now is just on here to annoy. I never took him that seriously, but now that he's just posting crap, knows he's posting it and knows that everyone else knows it, any credibility he may (stress may) have had is gone.

Before, he used to write something like "MOS is coming in 2009". Now he's saying that's when it'll go into production.

Still, you have to give him some credit on this. Some Apologists think MOS secretly went into production three months ago. Cuz, y'know, WB wants as little publicity as possible for a borderline invisible franchise like Singerman. Whatever else Retard is saying, at least he isn't saying that. Yet.

No, he has a job. BLOW job.

"maybe he should venture into gay superman or porno movie?"

Didn't he already try that with Singerman, the gay part anyway?

Well, SaveSuperman is off-line now because of Steve Manning's legal thing.

Whatever happened to free speech?

Is this not the Internet, as in the World Wide Web? Steve's website is seen internationally, or we wouldn't be hearing from Father Finian as he's in Australia. How then can this 'group', whoever they may be, infringe on Steve's right to have his own website or blog?

I mean, it's not like the Internet isn't ALREADY full of people bashing others, now is it?

ApologistPuncher said...

It is the utter arrogance, and ignorance, of certain individuals who "believe" that Freedom Of Speech means only THEY get to say and do what THEY want.

It is both sad and disgusting.

theCOLORSblend said...

It's only a matter of time until the names of the guilty parties come out. When they do, I've got about half a mind to have a lawyer friend of mine cruise some gay forums, see what he can find and maybe send a few letters.

Except that I don't care what other people think so I wouldn't do that same thing to someone else.

Hey Colors, where's a good place to go in the meantime until Steve's site is back?

I reckon I'll need to let off some Lana-steam after this weeks SV

AP, could you update THIS site, maybe with a new article to comment on about this farce being forced upon Steve?

That Superman Returns movie wasn't bad. It was just a little dissapointing. And I fucking RESENT you calling Brandon routh a "wood hack". Why dont u go fuck yourself Mr. Article. U dont seem to see: Reeve is dead. and you need someone who is both an ACTOr and resembles COMIC SUPERMAN. Routh did a damn good job. He didn't have much experience so hell, he should do a better job 2nd time through. I hope u fuckers fuck up once and nobidy gives u a 2nd chanc either. Singer is gay big fucking deal. I bet u gay-o-phobes NEVER NOT ONCE said a damn thing about LOTR trilogy or X-Men and Ian M is as gay as Freddy Mercury. U are all full of shit. Singer did a good job on Valkyrie and he's a damn good director. So go back to your loser jobs whatever they are and stop sub-consiously bitching about your shitty lives when u berate someone/something.
