Warner Bros. studios has finally decided to move forward with the new “Superman” movie. As reported in the past, WB’s studios is at war with the Jerome Siegel heirs trying to own full copyright of the Superman character. The Siegel’s was awarded half of the copyrighted material of the Superman works, which means that WB’s will not be allowed to use them for their next film. So this means that WB’s will have to be careful with the material they put in the next film. Which I assume that is why they hired Christopher Nolan to mentor them. They did not hire Chris as a director, just a mentor. WB’s was ordered to get the new Superman movie done and released before 2013, if they don’t, they will get full copyright of the Superman character. Keep in mind, this will NOT be another sequel to Bryan Singer’s, “Superman: Returns”.
With Christopher Nolan helping out, the next Superman movie will probably be a lot darker. I hope so. It should be action packed as well. Stay away from romance with Lois Lane and concentrate on a real Superman movie, the way he was supposed to be. Superman should not be Brandon Routh again. And please, keep the classic John Williams Superman theme. I don’t think the Siegels own the copyright to the Williams theme song. I would think the score belongs to John Williams and WB’s, so I’m sure they’ll still get to use the theme song to open up the movie with.
I’m really looking forward to seeing what they’ll do with the new Superman movie as it will indeed be much different than the earlier films.
