Collider.com spoke with Warner Bros. President Alan Horn to see where they were at with their superhero movies.
I then ask when we might be seeing another Superman. "Probably in the next couple of years. We're very anxious to bring Superman back also."
I then say Green Lantern? "Also on the board. On the runway. Hasn't taken off yet, but we're close."
I finally ask what he thinks the next Superhero property might be from Warner Bros. He says "I think Green Lantern is probably the best guess but I can't promise it at this moment."
And Justice League? "Not yet."

Aint-It-Cool-News.com and IGN.com both caught up with Bryan Singer at this weekend's press junket for his new film "Valkyrie". Both managed to ask him about the next Superman film... but once again Singer wasn't forthcoming with a clear answer...
AICN: So, I've heard that there might be some re-interest in SUPERMAN with Warner Bros. Is that true?
Bryan Singer: I couldn't... you know.. I couldn't tell you or talk about that at this point. I honestly... I'm just so... at least as far as my role in it is concerned I just need... I just have... this one because we had to drop and pick up on this has been a longer process so... yeah I wouldn't be able to give you a clear... any clarity on that. (laughs)
IGN.com posted this paragraph...
We asked Singer if it was a good thing to be off the project as far as he was concerned, to which he replied that he was "not officially not involved." Beyond that, however, the director was tightlipped on the matter.
So when real news does finally come out regarding the next Superman movie, it's highly unlikely it'll come from Bryan Singer.

UGO went to the director himself and asked him about said rumors and it seems as if though there are talks going on, he's not part of them as yet.
Is he involved? Singer says "I am not officially involved in the talk, no."
When they do talk, will they call him? "Well it’s, you know, I have relationships with Warner Brothers and with the character and, and, and, and it’s just the way things work out."
Asked straight up "But you are not divorced from Superman at this point?" He simply responded "No."

"Ryan brought the perfect amount of intensity to Cosmic Boy, similar to the intensity he current has in 'Legion of 3 Worlds'. He really brought a humanity to Rokk too, that goes beyond the page. Ryan embodied the leader of the Legion to a tee.
"Alexz is Saturn Girl. You see her and you see Saturn Girl. Her demeanor, and the thoughtfulness that reads on her face at all times is exactly who Imra is.
"And last but not least is Calum, who is freaking hilarious. He was probably the one closest like his character - Lightning Lad, who captured the portrayal of Lightning Lad's early years in my head. He's fun, energetic, exciting - literally lightning in a bottle waiting to be unleashed."

MTV: There's a lot of confusion about whether you will be directing another Superman film. Can you set the record straight?
Singer: At the moment I can't really talk about that. I wish I could. From my perspective I'm going to take a brief pause. This movie [Valkyrie] has taken a long time so I'm going to take a pause. A movie like that takes some time to do right. That's all I can say about that.
So, we're no clearer on this than we were before...

You've said this will be Superman's "Lord of the Rings."
I wanted to do Superman's entire life. That's my plan, to tell an epic Superman story. I love the structure of the three "The Godfather" films. Just something that starts with a young man building up to him being an old man. I just think with Superman, you can't go small on it. So I wanted to do something like a Superman magnum opus -- a giant Superman three-picture spectacular with a story that runs between seven and eight hours.
The story I've got is colossal. It's got everything I like about Superman all in one movie. It's a lifetime's worth of notes all put together. It starts 1,000 years ago on Krypton and with the technology we have now, I see people saying, "No. We don't need to see Krypton again." And all that. But really, you haven't seen Krypton before. You've seen lame TV show special effects. And you've seen pre-CGI technology of Krypton before. And the idea of scarlet jungles and jewel mountains and just Superman's genealogy; his ancestors. There's lot to play with -- Brainiac and so on. So starting there and then going 10 million years in the future by the end of the third movie. It's just a giant movie.
So we'd spend a lot of time on Krypton in your first movie?
Obviously, there is still tons of Superman in the first movie but I think the first half-an-hour would be great on Krypton. For the plot I have, Krypton is very important. So I really established the world there and the religion on Krypton. All the stuff you have seen teased in comics but you've never really seen in movies. Just make it grand. I wanted "The Dark Knight" to look like Superman 4. I want it to be just a big, grand Superman story.

His clips are now hosted exclusively at capedwonder.
Variety has published an article in which Warner Bros. boss Alan Horn and DC Comics' senior VP of creative affairs Gregory Noveck talk about where the WB and DC are headed in regards to comic book movies.
"We're having a lot of internal discussions on it," Horn says. "We haven't committed to any change at DC at this point," adding that both Warners and DC are committed to turning "the properties into viable movie product in an intelligent way so that we introduce them like planes on a runway. They have to be set up the right way and lined up the right way and all take off one at a time and fly safe and fly straight."
One high-profile property is "Justice League," which Warner Bros. had hoped would start production before the writers strike.
But given that it unites Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Green Arrow, Aquaman and Martian Manhunter, the studio is trying to figure out how such the pic (cast with younger actors) would affect its existing Batman and Superman franchises -- and whether the script respects how the characters play off each other in the DC universe.
To put it simply: the studio doesn't want to piss off the Comic-Con contingent.
"We're not off the notion of a Justice League," Robinov says. "There's a massive interest and knowledge in the comicbook industry and it takes time to sort of catch up and understand the characters and the history, where they've intersected with each other and what their worlds are. That's part of the education that we're going through."
As for the JLA movie, Noveck says...
"We're going to make a Justice League movie, whether it's now or 10 years from now. But we're not going to do it and Warners is not going to do it until we know it's right."

Buyers Beware Fake Superman/boy/girl Costumes Overtaking the Marketplace + Ilya Salkind Giving Back to Superman/Boy Fans Through EBAY
For more information on authentic Superman/boy/girl costumes visit: http://www.origialprop.com/ they have done countless research on a number of Superman and Superboy suits that have popped up on EBAY. They have gone so far as to analysis the labels and materials used to make each of the costumes.
To purchase rare Superman items for Executive Producer Ilya Salkind’s personal collection visit his EBAY page @ http://myworld.ebay.com/supermansalkind . Ilya includes his own personal Certificates of Authenticity and signs each one of them.
August 2, 2008
Salkind has recently become aware that Superboy and Superman costumes are being sold at auction houses and auction sites that may either be stolen property from the Warner vaults or completely phony reproductions. Salkind explained that, in certain cases, he's been told the costumes come with certificates of authenticity forged with Salkind's own signature. Salkind is considering his legal rights and how best to halt these unauthorized sales of what are at best stolen property and at worst complete fakes. Salkind believes, based on the numbers of Superman suits and Superboy suits made in total (excluding "Superman IV: The Quest for Peace" which was not a Salkind production), up to 90% of the Superman and Superboy costumes being offered for sale may be fakes.
On a related note, Salkind said he has no definitive information on when seasons two through four of "The Adventures of Superboy" will be released on DVD. However, he said he has a "good feeling" that Warners will continue with the "Superboy" DVDs after "Smallville" goes off the air.
