The story got started at IGN Filmforce, who reported that “X-Men” series director Bryan Singer had a meeting with Warner Brothers president and chief operating officer Alan Horn about possibly helming the new Superman movie, now that McG is no longer attached.
Earlier last week Superhero Hype! tried to get some kind of confirmation from Warner Bros. that this may be happening, but all we got back was a reply saying it was too early to comment on what’s going on with the project.
Fast forward to Thursday, when we received word from an anonymous scooper who claimed that it was official that Singer is indeed directing Superman and that Francis Lawrence would be taking over “Logan’s Run” from him.
Today, Ain’t-It-Cool-News has received similar word and adds that Dougherty and Harris are also on board…
Bryan Singer, Michael Dougherty & Dan Harris are on board. It will not be an origin story. And something regarding the Christopher Reeve films and that universe has something to do with this.
