Superman Returns 2 = Reboot?

superman 2

Warner Brother’s Jeff Robinov has stated in an interview that the next Superman film will not be the planned ‘Man of Steel’ (a direct sequel to the 2006 Bryan Singer film) but instead will be a reboot of the franchise that will be as dark as possible without straying too far from the characters.

“‘Superman’ didn’t quite work as a film in the way that we wanted it to,” says Mr. Robinov. “It didn’t position the character the way he needed to be positioned.” “Had ‘Superman’ worked in 2006, we would have had a movie for Christmas of this year or 2009,” he adds. “But now the plan is just to reintroduce Superman without regard to a Batman and Superman movie at all.”

This decision raises two big red flags for me, firstly does it mean that they are getting rid of Brandon Routh? He did a fantastic job as Superman I thought, doing a pretty good Christopher Reeve impression without making it too obvious. It would be a massive shame to lose him.

And secondly, this will make the continuity of the Superman films needlessly complicated. Superman Returns already ignores Superman III and IV. Where will this new film fit in? After Superman II? Or will it reboot the whole canon? And do Warner Brother’s really expect the average consumer to figure it out (remember all the confusion over the Incredible Hulk reboot)?
