Singer talks Superman

10.12.2004

Superman news article pic In case you hadn't noticed, there's been a few SUPERMAN rumors floating around. No more of that today. Capone over at Ain't It Cool News recently sat down with the man behind it all Bryan Singer while Singer was at the Chicago International Film Festival promoting a tv show he's executive producing for Fox (which sounds pretty cool) and set the record straight on some of the more prominent rumors flying around the information superhighway (how come no one uses that anymore?). Here's an excerpt:

Capone: Where do you stand right with casting SUPERMAN? Is it really going to be called SUPERMAN RETURNS?
B.S.[Bryan Singer]: That's strictly a working title. But it is a return story. It puts the first films in a kind of vague history. So what it doesn't do is tread over the 1978 Richard Donner film, it doesn't tread over "Smallville." It elaborates on the existence of Superman in the world in a history. He's out of the culture and then he returns.

Capone: Will you be using footage from the other films?
B.S.: (Long pause) It's possible. There's an introduction sequence that may or may not involve something like that, but not in the way you might be thinking.

Capone: Is there any truth to the reports that you have a deadline to lock in the main cast or Warner Bros. will step in a do it for you?
B.S.: No, that's absurd. I read that too and think it's just bizarre about James Caviezel, who's a wonderful actor. But, no, I'm committed to casting an unknown.

Capone: So asking you what that unknown might be would be pointless, because we probably would not have heard of this person, right?
B.S.: Right.

It's a good interview and definitely worth a read. Check it out here.
