Bryan Singer Confirmed to Direct ‘Superman: The Man of Steel’

It has been confirmed that Bryan Singer (X-Men) will return to direct Superman: The Man of Steel, the sequel to Superman Returns. IESB spoke to a source at Warner Brothers who confirmed Singer's involvement.

The story also provides insight as to who may be writing the script. Writers Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris, who wrote Superman Returns, are out. So who is in? Well, the strong possibility is that the film will be written by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. The duo previously gained notice for their script writing on Transformers.

The pair of writers have apparently had "several meetings" with Warner Brothers regarding the film.

Brandon Routh, who played Superman in Superman Returns, has already confirmed that he will be returning for Superman: The Man of Steel as well.

Man of Steel was released June 14th, 2013.

    @comicbookfan Yeah, the unintelligent crowds that came on here for awhile pushed a lot of people away. I get along with a number of the new people on here.

      @mcleve02 It's useless. I've tried to get mine back as well, but only a few of us stuck around. It's all newer dudes but a lot are cool people.

                      he was good then but now not really, superman returns had a lot of potential and overall i thought it was a good film but could have been so much more

                        @remy72883 - Your comment never showed up in my @mentions. Next time, make sure to get my URL right.

                        But to answer your question, I disagree. You went on a rant about how Singer should be bringing people coffee instead of directing movies... I like Singer, and despite what you may think of Superman Returns or any of his other films, he is good. So naturally, I'm going to disagree with you, friend.

                            @thajackal - Referring to Singer as "Singerman" and Superman Returns as "Singerman Returns" has gotten really old now, don't you think? Returns wasn't a film about Bryan Singer, it was about Superman (just caught myself saying it wasn't a Bryan Singer film, lol)... Had to rephrase). Singer captured the essence of who Superman is perfectly. Tell me that after everything you've heard of the reboot, you don't still want this film to happen. Same with you @remy72883.

                            BTW, I've thought about adding you in the past @thajackal because I know you're a Smallville fan, and some of the things you have to say sometimes as far as your opinions go are understandable, but for the most part you have about the same level of intelligence as a flea.

                              So..... Zack Snyder's (SUPERMAN) and Bryan Singers's (SUPERMAN: Man of Steal) are two completely different stuff... WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?...... please, can someone explain to The Mime what is the difference.

                                And LOL at the number of comments this thing has, compared to the reboot articles, it has them BEAT! Yeah, I'm not even about to read all of these posts. :P

                                    this guy sucks now anyways as a director, now Chirs Nolan that's a director, if you cant keep up, dont bother stepping up singer, i bet it hurts his feelings knowing that every person out their wanted Nolan to direct this over him, he should be getting coffee for people now instead of directing films, i think that is the closest this guy should be to a movie set

                                          Wait, what? Did I miss something here? Please don't tell me Zack Snyder is having anything to do with this. Hasn't he destroyed everything he's touched?
