Legal Battles Complicate The Future Of Superman


When Zack Snyder's Man of Steel comes out next year, it will represent the second time that Warner Bros. has tried to bring back the most famous comic book character in history. When Bryan Singer directed Superman Returns in 2006 it was meant to spring new life into the franchise that had died when Superman IV: The Quest For Peace came out in 1987. Unfortunately the film was rejected by fans and the studio decided to start again with a new origin story. But what if Snyder's version fails? They can just start again, right?

What an ugly situation this could turn into. I wouldn't want to see Superman in a different costume or with different abilities. In my opinion, this would destroy Superman should it all come down to that.

It would...and I don't see how they could get away with that anyway. It just seems totally unheard of to change a character that much. Especially one that's been around as long as Superman. We have all known him and his weaknesses and strengths and a just about everything else about him....I just can't see it happening...especially the costume...that would be utterly dumb.

It seems to always come down to money these least most of the time anyway.

My Anxiety Personified In "Inside Out 2" - Review | Everyone Gaming

Inside Out 2 has got to be the animation movie of the year for me so far. It had everything I wanted from the original and so much more I never could have anticipated. From the very first opening scene with that nostalgic, wholesome piano keys of the theme sound from the first movie, it was like my soul was transported back into the feelings the first movie brought about while bringing me wholly into the world of the sequel.
