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.
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.
JH: All right.
