In a follow-up to last week’s item on director Bryan Singer and the fate of the Superman sequel, Variety reports that Warner Bros. has moved the film’s release from 2009 to 2010 because of the writers strike.
Superman Returns scribes Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris opted out of the sequel, titled Superman: Man of Steel, in late October, leaving little time for the studio to accept pitches before the strike began on Nov. 5.
Last week Variety‘s Anne Thompson wrote that it’s “highly unlikely” Singer will return to helm Man of Steel. However, in today’s article she quotes a representative for the director as saying, “Superman is moving forward with Bryan Singer attached.”
Despite that assertion, Thompson notes that “nothing is happening” with the movie.
