The latest Superman buzz

"Variety has confirmed that Superman is "tentatively booked" to film at Fox Studios in Australia beginning in early 2005. Director Bryan Singer and assorted Warner Brothers personnel visited the studio a few weeks ago. The shoot is said to be scheduled for 120 days

'When asked if it will be a sequel, remake, or origin story, (Singer) said, in so many words, sequel," claims AICN's scooper. "He said that the previous movies will be referenced in a 'vague historical sense' (this wasn't clarified), and that the origin itself will be handled in the same way it was in the first Batman movie, with intercutting flashbacks.'"

I'm a gettin' quite psyched for this movie. Ever since it was confirmed that Nicholas Cage will not be fucking the film up, I've been optimistic about it. I'm not too crazy about the selection of Bryan Singer as director, but who the fuck ever listens to what I think? Although he arguably did alright with the X-Men movies, I've always felt that they were rather flat and popcorn-driven. Personally, I would prefer a darker, more serious Superman, ala Christopher Nolan's upcoming Batman Begins (trailers for which are already showing in South African cinemas). Guess we'll just have to wait and see.
