October 26, 2006: Superman Movie Sequel A Done Deal

IESB.net are reporting that Bryan Singer and Warner Bros. signed a deal this past weekend to make a sequel to "Superman Returns", with production to start some time around September 2007. Here's an excerpt from the IESB.net article...

    We have been told that a couple of things are for certain. For one, the sequel will have a slightly smaller budget. Returns budget was approximately $208 million dollars with P&A (prints and ads) of about $50 million putting it at around $260. The sequel is expected to be around $140-175 million plus marketing.

    Second, more action, tons more action is expected this time around. The studio was quite happy with the way Supes was reintroduced to the world and next time around expect to see him in full action battle mode. We've been told that Superman will have the battle of his life in the sequel and audiences can expect one of the ultimate baddies in the D.C. universe to come to Metropolis to pick a fight with the Man of Steel.

The smaller budget isn't a concern, as it's speculated that it is mainly due to the fact that many of the sets were already built for "Superman Returns" and stored away for future use.
