Now that things are moving on the Superman Reboot, I think it's time we put this little "project" to bed. Singerman is no more, BJ Routh is stumping at conventions (Like I predicted YEARS ago), and that Fruit Roll-Up caped fetish wetsuit is HISTORY. So it's time to "think about the future".
I started a forum for people wanting to discuss the new film in an open environment. There will be no over-eager "mods" looking to bounce people who don't agree with them. No "agendas", just a place to discuss things relating to Supes.
Feel free to sign-up and stay a while.
Singerman is dead. Long live Superman!

Well, it looks like the first "domino" has fallen in regards to the Christopher Nolan produced reboot.
Zak Snyder has revealed that once he finishes production on Sucker Punch, he will be taking up the reigns as director of Superman's 20-plus-years-in-the-making big-screen reboot.
Read all about it here:
"I just spoke with Zack Snyder, who confirms that as soon as he completes post on Sucker Punch, he'll move right into Warner Bros' long awaited next Man of Steel movie in development with Chris Nolan and David Goyer. "I've been a big fan of the character for a long time, he's definitely the king of all superheroes, he's the one," Snyder, who directed Watchmen and 300, told me. "It's early yet, but I can tell you that what David and Chris have done with the story so far definitely has given me a great insight into a way to make him feel modern. I've always felt he was kind of awesome. I'll finish Sucker Punch and get right at it."
Honestly, I think this is a great choice, and if nothing else, we will actually get a Superman who does more than mope, whine and lift things.

Well, well, well.... BJ is so dull he's putting HIMSELF to sleep...
The weekend box office numbers are in, and what do you know? ANOTHER film franchise is DOA with BJ Routh attached.
Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World came in a dismal FIFTH in the box office tallies, totaling a paltry $10.5 million for it's opening weekend. FAR behind the Sylvester Stallone action extravaganza The Expendables, opening at #1 with $35 million. Who would have predicted THIS would happen? I mean, there are just SO MANY "people" out there that want BJ to strap on his Fruit Roll-Up cape again isn't there?
Obviously not. The ugly, overweight Apologist virgins couldn't even tally a DECENT number for BJ's latest FLOP.
I took a look at a few message boards these last few weeks, gauging the Apologists "predictions" for the two films listed above. I read things about how "Scott Pilgrim will easily beat The Expendables", and how "amazing Routh will be". Amazing is right. Amazing that this box office cancer was even included in the cast. Not only did The Expendables destroy Scott Pilgrim, but so did Eat, Pray, Love and TWO films in their second to FIFTH week of release! The Other Guys and Inception also placed well ahead of Pilgrim.
Anyone wondering if BJ's "Dylan Is A Dog" will get a US theatrical run? I am not going out on much of a limb when I think NO. The guy just isn't a box office draw, and anything his name is attached to will sink faster than his career projections.
Start filling out those applications at the local bowling alley, BJ. No one is going to be paying you $65 for a picture at a 'con for long....

Hello everyone. Long time no see....
Anyway, just thought I'd drop by and post a link to an interview Bryan Singer gave to the LA Times, where he makes a "startling" confession:
"I genuinely like the people, and my personality meshes more with this universe than it does with other universes, I think; I see that now at this point," Singer said, no doubt referring to his defection to the DC Comics universe to make the oddly lifeless 2006 movie "Superman Returns." "I feel a connection to the X-Men characters and also the ensemble nature of the films. If you look at 'Usual Suspects'' or my last film, 'Valkyrie,' I feel especially comfortable with ensemble juggling. In the space between all the characters you can disguise a central thought that's hidden in all the discourse. I missed that with the singular relationship story of Superman. And, well, it always gives you something to cut to..."
Not a surprise to some of us, now is it? But this should give the few remaining Apologists a much needed "kick in the pants", shouldn't it? With the news that Christopher Nolan is "godfathering" a Reboot, and that it will be a FUN movie, I'd say right about now it's a GOOD TIME to be a fan.
Singerman is dead. Long live Superman!!
