Next Superman Movie Will Be Unleashed?

/Film snuck into Legendary Pictures' password protected company site, which lists Superman Unleashed as one of the company's upcoming films in development. Legendary Pictures was one of the companies responsible for bringing director Bryan Singer and Warner Bros. Pictures' Superman Returns to theaters in 2006.

The site says the listing includes the following synopsis:

"Ramping up the action of its esteemed predecessor, the sequel to 'Superman Returns' promises to raise the stakes and take the audience to heights of action that no other superhero movie can achieve."

Now I know alot of people didn't like Superman Returns and simply bashed the movie for everything its worth, but I was one of the few who actually enjoyed it to some extent. I know the movie had problems and plot holes that almost anyone who has some knowledge would admit, but it was still pretty entertaining. I would personally love for a sequel to the film. I know director Bryan Singer is more than capable of delivering a worthy sequel and if you don't believe me than go see X2: X-Men United. I would also love for Brandon Routh to return as Clark Kent/Superman. I wouldn't really mind if Warner Bros. and DC wanted to reboot the franchise as long as Routh returns. I thought he was a good Superman and somewhat nailed the Clark Kent aspect. I would really hate for him to be replaced. One thing is for sure and its that fans like me are in need of a new Superman movie.

I hate Superman. I hated Superman Returns but...

That film left me hanging. I was left with so many questions after Returns: Will Lois choose Richard or Superman? Will Lex and Kitty ever get off that island? How will the relationship between Superman and his son develop? Lots of emotional stuff going on that should get resolved.

So this is good news.

Good to know Im not the only one.

I guess not everyone likes Superman, but I personally think hes the best superhero. I even like him more than Batman. You are right about Superman Returns and how it left people with a ton of questions, but I kind of enjoyed the flick. I thought the visual effects were dazzling and the acting was pretty good. Heres hoping the next Superman movie gets a better treatment like the current Batman films have. I just hope Routh returns as Superman/Clark Kent.
