Horn Planning Superman Sequel for 2009

Warner Bros. Pictures President Alan Horn talked to the Los Angeles Times about the performance of Superman Returns and echoed director Bryan Singer’s comments from Comic-Con that they are hoping for a sequel in 2009:

Horn expects “Superman Returns” to eventually gross about $400 million worldwide, more than last year’s hit “Batman Begins.” Nonetheless, “Superman” fell at least $100 million short of his expectations.

“I thought it was a very successful movie, but I think it should have done $500 million worldwide,” Horn said. “We should have had perhaps a little more action to satisfy the young male crowd.”

Still, he’s betting Warner has firmly reestablished the “Superman” franchise and is planning another installment for summer 2009.
