Superman 2 delayed?

While Warner Bros. is hoping to get the SUPERMAN RETURNS follow-up MAN OF STEEL into theaters for the summer of 2009, that release date could be in jeopardy. Singer is about to start filming on VALKYRIE with Tom Cruise and according to producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan (CHICAGO) he won't be making SUPERMAN next. They've got Singer lined up to direct THE MAYOR OF CASTRO STREET and expect him to start production in 2008 before SUPERMAN. "The next Superman, that's a ways off," says Meron, adding that they'll likely be in pre-production on CASTRO while Singer is doing post work on VALKYRIE. What about CASTRO hitting delays and SUPERMAN being Singer's next film? "Don't worry about it. Trust me," says Zadan. Precious few details about SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL have leaked out and it's unclear exactly how much brainstorming has taken place about the sequel. One thing we do know is that Superman is featured in Warner Bros.' JUSTICE LEAGUE script but the studio wants both DARK KNIGHT and MAN OF STEEL finished before they decide on whether those characters will make an appearance in their familiar Bale/Routh form.
