Superman gets reboot
One of the biggest superhero movie news floating around right now are the plans to reboot the Superman franchise once again. Warner Bros. has confirmed through WB Pictures Group Pres. Jeff Robinov that the rumors are indeed true. The speculation is that the move will be similar to how the Louis Letterier-directed Incredible Hulk reintroduced the Hulk following the critically praised but box office disappointment The Hulk that was directed by Ang Lee.
WB also announced that the current focus for its superhero properties are on single characters and that the Dark Knight template will be used–meaning it will be darker superhero movies.
Hmm, a dark and brooding Plastic Man movie… that could be a first.
