Superman Unleashed

February 20, 2009: Legendary Pictures Lists "Superman Unleashed"

SlashFilm.com claims to have received a link to a password protected page from the official Legendary Pictures website where a movie titled "Superman Unleashed" is listed amongst their films in development. The page reads:
    Ramping up the action of its esteemed predecessor, the sequel to 'Superman Returns' promises to raise the stakes and take the audience to heights of action that no other superhero movie can achieve.

SlashFilm.com seems to think this means that a sequel to "Superman Returns" and not a reboot is being planned. They also indicate that another of their sources claims that the title is just a working title and they are still hearing pitches from different writers.

Is the page authentic? Is it current? Or is it something created before the reboot announcement and never removed? Will the movie be a sequel or a reboot? Will Brandon Routh still be Superman? Is the movie going to be titled "Superman Unleashed" or "Superman: Man of Steel"?

All these questions remain unanswered while we await an official announcement from Warner Bros.
