Words are circulating that the sequel of "Superman Returns" may lose its helmer. According to a report from Variety columnist and blogger Anne Thompson, there is a big possibility that Bryan Singer won't return to shoot "Superman: The Man of Steel".
In her blog, the columnist claimed that the 42-year-old director will be too busy editing Tom Cruise-starring film "Valkyrie" and preparing for the production of "The Mayor of Castro Street". She wrote, "It is highly unlikely that Bryan Singer will return to shoot the next Superman movie. (The director is finishing up Tom Cruise's Nazi film Valkyrie, and prepping The Mayor of Castro Street)."
Apart from the news that Singer might be off from the next Superman movie, it was also reported that Brandon Routh won't be playing as Superman in another upcoming superhero flick "Justice League of America", which reportedly won't be shot until the end of the writers' strike. Allegedly, the actor will be replaced with a younger casting because the film needs a cast of youthful superheroes.
