“At the end of this film we see that there is so much more to explore.” said Brandon Routh at the end of Superman Returns; inevitably opening up the franchise for a second modern sequel. In August 2006 , in an interview with the LA Times, Alan Horn, Warner president, announced that they were hoping to complete a sequel to Superman Returns for a 2009 release. Bryan Singer, director of Superman Returns and other cult films such as X-men and Usual Suspects, echoed these sentiments at the 2006 San Diego Comic Con.
And in an interview with SuperHeroHype he said,
I’d like to build on the seeds that are planted, you know, expand upon relationships, you’ve now got a child, you’ve got these other elements, but also have the opportunity to have the characters more established to bring in some more action and have some more stuff going on.
As of October 2006 a deal between Singer and Warner was agreed.
