                          So I'm guessing you didn't read my comment? I said why Superman Returns was good but also why they need a reboot...you know damn well it's better than hottie and the nottie, don't be stubborn. X-Men was good and X2 was fantastic. There's far worse superhero movies than Returns...Elextra, Catwoman, Shumacher's Batman films, the Fantastic Four flicks...take your pick. Returns was good for what it was, and that was a continuation of the Donner years which you seem to have missed. With a better script, Singer could have reinvented Superman greatly. We need the Millar script

                          I also like how you changed your avatar and even your name...how convenient

                            so i'm guessing you haven't seen the x-men movies and the worst superhero movie ever made...superman returns. if you like that movie then wow you must have very low standards for good movies. i'm guessing you thought the hottie and the nottie was phenomenal. i'm not narrow minded. i just know the difference between good and crap and you my friend don't know the difference.

                              "this will prolly be worse then superman returns. the only way they can save this movie is by getting a new director. bryan singer is a piece of sh*t."

                              That, my friends, is an example of a narrow mind. Comments like those is why I find it hard not to curse, rollin lmao This is coming from a guy with a TDK avatar...wow, that's original. Like we haven't seen a pic of the Joker before

                              They've stated idk how many times that the action will be increased with this film and will stick closer to the comics, SO they're already trying to make it better than Superman Returns.

                              Bryan Singer is not a piece of sh*t. He makes a movie you don't like...so he's a piece of sh*t? You have to look at the source material: he was channeling the Donner era with Returns. It was a great movie in that sense. I'm sure he could have knocked it out of the ball park if he didn't try so hard to mimic Donner and Reeve because he IS a great director...not a piece of sh*t. I suppose you hate him for his sexuality, too?

                                  I agree with you there Rollintruth. Not bothered if it's a reboot or not (though a new storyline would be nice), just so long as they get it right.

                                      VIS, I understand what you mean about acting differently online than in person. But that's what I mean -- I think people forget that the interactions online are also within a community. Just because we can't look one another in the eye doesn't mean there's not still another person on the receiving end. It's easy to forget that, and to fail to notice when our behavior online becomes a sort of habit that does eventually start to manifest in other settings. And I think people just don't realize that the more aggressive, insulting behavior online does in fact feel just like bullying to the people on the other end. If you've experienced bullying in person, just consider that the way you felt at those times is the way people can also feel when confronted with insults and aggressiveness against them online -- when it manifests even over relatively minor things like this, it makes the confrontational tone seem even stronger, too.

                                      Like I said, I think I seem to agree with most of your views about Superman (and, I suspect, comics in general). And I pretty dramatically disagree with those who think there should be less romance and more action (which I feel usually tends to result in less character development). I also think that while the glasses are a bit too simple of a plot device, they are symbolic of something more, and that it could very easily be rendered on film in a way that makes it more believable (Reeves in the first film used glasses and hairstyle to accentuate such a major shift in personality that I totally bought the idea that it fooled everyone). "Birthright" for example was great in this regard.

                                      And FYI, I don't personally think there's anything wrong with profanity itself, sometimes there's just no better way to express something (or to make a joke, etc). I just hate seeing it and insults (especially stuff like "retard" and "gay" -- what if people started using "jew" or "n***er" that way, would people ignore it and say it's just the internet?) thrown at people so harshly, and over disagreements about films. I think it weakens the quality of boards and whatever point someone is making.

                                      In light of your last couple of posts, I'll also say I apologize to you for the harshness with which I responded to your harshness.

                                      As for the topic at hand: I think the "Superman Unleashed" page is probably out of date. It was likely put up back when the studio was still considering a sequel, and the page was a placeholder for the project and just stayed up (but locked) as a backup. That it comes on the heels of the Wachowski rumor also gives me added disincentive to believe this most recent "news". That said, I'd welcome a sequel (whatever its faults, I liked "Superman Returns"), just as I'd welcome a reboot. I'll welcome whatever they do, so long as it treats the character with the respect he deserves and maintains the current quality of WB's DC films.

                                        Hope they decide that the title is sh*t before the film's released. Unleashed?! Piss off.
