They Finally Picked Someone To Put The Tights On!
The part of Superman has been cast for Bryan Singer's "Superman Returns". In some of the pictures of this guy he almost looks like he could be Reeve's son and he's definately not hard on the old peepers. What's interesting to note is the way that Singer is treating this film. Up until this point every attempt at making a new Superman film was centered on making it "New". Every writer and director attached to the project wanted to throw away the Chris Reeve's films and start from scratch. According to Singer, best known for "The Usual Suspects" and "X-Men", he wants to use Superman 1 and 2 as a launching point for his film. The_Keoki loves this idea and also loves the fact that John Williams score will be incorperated into this new incarnation of the big boy in blue. Warner Brothers and Singer are shooting for a 4th of July release in 2006 which is appropriate....what's more American than Superman?
