In an interview with Hollywood Reporter, Brandon Routh says that the Justice League movie is almost certainly dead and buried, however, he goes on to tell us that the Man of Steel script is in the works and that they plan to start early next year:
“It’s just ‘Man of Steel’ now, I know, they’re busy writing a script and then I trust we’ll be starting next year, early next year. That’s my timeline anyway.”

I am glad Routh is in. He is perfect. probably the only thing good about the first movie (apart from the airplane scene)
still, i hope singer is gone.
it would be a dream come true for peter jackson to direct! the guy just knows how to creat epic movies. Seriously, Superman needs to be given all the attention and more than Lord of the Rings was ever given as far as production goes.
there is SO much potential here and singer really missed the boat, relegating it to compromising supermans morals and making the movie so constrained. it really should open up to the like of doomsday, darkseid, apokolips (although the spelling is really irritating).
Superman should be better in every way than batman, iron man, lord of the rings, etc. and it should never become a “fast food” movie like fantastic four. superman should be deep and moving and yet all the while filled with intense action, the most spectacular special effects, and unbelievable superhuman encounters ever put into film. heck incorporate jackson and michael bay and singer all at once if you have to, just get it right.
it should be the best move ever made. ever.
I totally agree, Routh was excellent in SR. Kate was good too.
Whoever directs the “Man of Steel” I would like to see box office records smashed. Superman is the greatest super hero and this sequel should cover everything shawn above says. The effects should be fantastic, more action!!!
I look forward to it!!!!
I totally agree with the people above. Brandon is truly talented he is the best thing to happen to the comic world since the awesome Christopher Reeve !!!!! Brandon was given a “stinker” of a script and expected to make it a blockbuster.Not very smart on WB’s part !!!! Hey guys at WB did you read the script before you handed out checks ? How do you expect a gem to shine when you put it in the MUD !!!! Hey guys at WB how about expecting the writers to write something better than a watered down half assed job just to get it out the door.If the people at smallville would have been handed that last script they would have laughed,and then fired the writer.Lets try to write a MOVIE and not blame the failure of the first “movie” on Brandon Routh.You dropped the ball now try HARDER! Thanks I feel better now. Cyn
i fink they should scrap the whole idea whilst they still can, if they release this next film (regardless how long they spend working on the script)its going to be a flop because to many people where disappointed with the last one, they should wait a couple more years play around with the Smallville series as much as they can with out making it boring and when they have court peoples attention again release the film and i think they u should be using tom welling, Routh has got the looks of superman down but his acting in the last film was dead it didn’t bring superman to life and was showing no real commitment to the role he couldn’t make me believe the emotion of the film the whole thing was dead!
I’ve just read that comment left by Cyntalkz87, i agree with what you are saying about the script but Routh was a big let down on his own behalf, i 100% agree with what you where saying about WB just passing off the the script without a second look at it but with Routh having the lead role left him with the responsibility to actually lead(which he didn’t)most of the attention was taken from him and was on Kate Bosworth and Kevin Spacey and the little kid (i don’t know his name)
Brandon Routh brought back Superman for me, i was afraid i would never see him after Christopher Reeves passing,but thankfully Brandon is here and hope is still their.
i think brandon is the best superman ever.… he is fitted for may be his upcoming movie “the man of steel” and i can’t w8 to see him in big screen.… Go Brandon Routh
