Bryan Singer omitted from Superman Sequel talks December 7th, 2008

UGO have posted an inter­view with Super­man Returns direc­tor Bryan Singer, quizzing him on the progress of the Super­man: Man of Steel movie. To sur­mise, Bryan Singer is not involved in the talks around the Super­man sequel, but he is also not yet offi­cially ‘divorced’ from the Super­man franchise.

Jor­dan Hoff­man: Bryan, I have to ask you…..The Man of Steel! Superman!

Bryan Singer: I couldn’t – I wish I had an answer.

JH: I’m strap­ping you to a lie detec­tor right now.

BS: (laughs) Yeah?

JH: You feel that on your arm?

BS: Yeah, yeah.

JH: That’s me strap­ping a lie detec­tor to you.

BS: Okay.

JH: Tell me some­thing about Super­man and you and your rela­tion­ship together.

BS: I love Super­man and I can not tell you any­thing else. I, uh……

JH: Would you like to tell me some­thing else? But you sim­ply can’t?

BS: I can’t, I….no-no I wish I could! Yeah! I wish I could, but there’s noth­ing I have to tell. I’ve got a world tour (laughs) press tour on Valkyrie, a pre­mière in New York, uh –

JH: But there is talk of a new film, though. Are you offi­cially involved in this talk of the new film?

BS: I am not offi­cially involved in the talk, no.

JH: But when talk hap­pens they’ll call you.

BS: Well it’s, you know, I have rela­tion­ships with Warner Broth­ers and with the char­ac­ter and, and, and, and it’s just the way things work out.

JH: But you are not divorced from Super­man at this point.

BS: No.

JH: All right.
