Another superman film? BOOOORING...

But wait...how about...
Superman: RED SON

That certainly has a plot which hasn't been done to death. Far more interesting than what we will undoubtedly see.
Lets have Superman as "the Champion of the common worker who fights a never-ending battle for Stalin, socialism, and the international expansion of the Warsaw Pact."

I'm still waiting with bated breath for this. I know nothing about it except that it apparently exists. I know it'll be shitloads different from the cartoon I love (I don't generally read comics, funnily enough - just watch all the tie-in stuff), but I'm still very interested.

JaredXE:
and revisiting Spider-Man's turned out to be a complete disaster.

*Cough* It made over three quarters of a Billion dollars, Bob. It was not in any ways a disaster, and your wishful thinking isn't going to warp reality. Face it, it was a good and popular movie and I am personally glad that they fired Raimi's lame ass. When the men who hold the purse-strings tell you what they want in their movie, you don't fucking sabotage your own production and expect to be kept around for another.

Thank you for saying what I was going to say. Bob really needs to realize that people actually liked it, and for that reason it actually made money.

Gizmo1990:

I cannot comment on the movie as I did not see it but you cannot say it made X amount of money so it is good. Final Fantasy XIII sold well but I, like many others, hated it. I know 3 people who went to see Spiderman and hated it.

But I agree with you about Raimi. Him being gone is a good thing.

My friends, family, and I all liked it, and it has a generally positive response from most critics. I honestly don't know why Bob hates it so much, I was expecting his review to say something about how he was pleasantly surprised. Because I sure was.

Anyway, Superman, yeah. I've always wanted to be a bigger fan of Superman and it looks like now is the best time since we're all kind of burned out on Batman stuff. I agree with everything Bob said though.

Snip

As I said I have not seen it so I cannot comment. I was both beyond busy and beyond broke when it was out so I did not get to see it. I just hate it when people say it made money theirfor it was good. I don't know about you but I have bought many games/books/movies over the years and I have not liked all of them. My friends did not like it. That said despite what they, and Bob, and many other people have said I will still give it a go when it is released on Blu ray.

I'm still waiting for a writer who gets the relationship of humanity and superman right.

ie, we'd force him to become our God-King or destroy us all.

The only reason anybody on earth in a "Superman exists" universe is alive is because Superman doesn't want them dead. Does anybody really think humanity would not react with extreme force -- absolutely everything at our disposal -- to destroy him?

There'd be fucking religions devoted to him, praying to him for mercy, while at the same time legions upon legions looking for some way to get rid of him. The only way he'd stop the attacks on him -- and us hurting ourselves -- is if he became some sort of global overlord.

The 90's, pls go. This isn't the 90's. It's 2012. You should be back in the past with the dinosaurs and caveguy.

I agree NuSpiderman was a great movie, glad it was successful, but Raimi was a good director and it was the producers that sabotaged him, not the other way around.

I am however glad we got to see a new direction in spiderman, so it worked out.
