Wachowskis not directing Superman February 20th, 2009

/Film are report­ing that the AICN James McTeigue report was in fact false:

Sorry to get you guys all excited but I have just got­ten con­fir­ma­tion from two inde­pen­dent sources that the report was com­pletely false. I don’t know if an inter­view with James McTeigue actu­ally aired on RTL1 or not (I’m guess­ing not) but The Wachowski Broth­ers have def­i­nitely never had any talks with DC or Warner Bros to helm a Super­man film. This is confirmed.

phew There is still hope that wb will change their mind con­cern­ing the reboot. per­son­ally super­man return­ing again won’t do so bring the sequel.

Now that David S. Goyer Christo­pher Nolan and Emma Thomas are writ­ing Super­man: Man Of Steel and exec­u­tive pro­duc­ing it Warner Bros. should hire pro­duc­ers Guy Ritchie and Quentin Taran­tino cos­tume designer James Ache­son cin­e­matog­ra­pher Don Burgess com­posers John Williams and Robert Rodriguez visual and spe­cial effects design­ers Scott Stock­dyk and John Dyk­stra along with co-producers Oliver Stone and Mar­tin Scors­esse co-executive pro­ducer
Sam Raimi and direc­tor Steven Speilberg.

In Super­man Returns (2006) the Super­man cos­tume from its pre­de­ces­sors: Super­man (1978) Super­man II (1980) Super­man III (1983) and Super­man IV: The Quest For Peace (1987) was not meant to be updated so in Super­man: Man Of Steel (2013) the chest’s S emblem should be a cou­ple of inches larger and sewn onto the suit
instead of a sculped medal­lion and its colours should be a bright
red and yel­low the costume’s colours should be a slightly brighter blue with a scar­let red cape under­pants and leather boots and a brighter more vibrant yel­low belt with no S logo
and the cape should have a yel­low S logo sewn onto it as well and
an unknown actor about 6’3–6’4 with dark brown (almost black) hair blue eyes and a resem­blance to Christo­pher Reeve and Bran­don Routh should be cast as Superman/Clark Kent.

When the unknown actor gets cast as Superman/Clark Kent and wears an exact replica of the Man Of Steel’s clas­sic bright red blue and yel­low cos­tume that the late great Christo­pher Reeve wore in Super­man I II III and IV (1978–1987) as Super­man he should wear large brown rimmed semi-round glasses as Clark Kent
Reese With­er­spoon should por­tray Lois Lane Bruce Willis should por­tray Lex Luthor and Leonardo Dicaprio should por­tray Dark­sied
with Sean Con­nery as Jor-El as well as Frank Lan­gella and Sam Hunt­ing­ton repris­ing their roles as Perry White and Jimmy Olsen.
