Well, it appears the "confirmation" of BS' departure just becomes clearer & clearer:
Here is the "important" bit:
Bryan Singer has refused to undertake a re-boot of the Superman franchise and has left the Executives at WB with no choice but to take a fresh creative direction.
He "refused"? Please.
He stated the Wachowski Brothers had been approached to re-boot the franchise as a trilogy and they are currently reviewing their options as its like being asked to take the final play in a superbowl final. Says if they do agree, he will likely either succumb to providing second unit support on the movie or will champion the directorship of Plastic Man - He started to giggle as he stated its like a young child for the Brothers and they wont give that up easily.
- Says, the very thought of the brothers making a superman movie is unbelievable as they have grown up in the world of comic books and they would be ideal for the project.
The Wachowski Bros., huh? I haven't seen Speed Racer, but it looked like they were TOO FAITHFUL to the 60's cartoon. The Matrix movies went from VERY GOOD to PRETTY LAME, but tell me that last fight between Smith and Neo DIDN'T look like a "Superman"-type brawl to you? And I'd rather have someone who respects the characters history, and includes it in a brand-new motion picture, instead of a fatheaded MORON making a film for HIMSELF.
Are they my FIRST choice? Nope. Do I think they CAN'T make a good Superman film? No. IF it's them, I'm willing to give it a chance.
Stated that Bryan Singer is looking to move on to Logan's Run a movie to be produced by Joel Silver.
Good riddance to bad rubbish....
