While The Dark Knight prepares for Oscar glory with a January re-release in theaters, his crimefighting partner Superman faces an uncertain cinematic future. In addition to Mark Millar's infamous pitch to reboot the character, now it looks like Superman Returns director Bryan Singer has been removed from the franchise. Maybe.
Talking to UGO, Singer was unforthcoming about where he stands in regards to any future Superman movie:
I love Superman and I can not tell you anything else... I am not officially involved in the talk [about a new movie], no. Well it’s, you know, I have relationships with Warner Brothers and with the character and, and, and, and it’s just the way things work out.
However, he also said that he was "not divorced" from Superman, which suggests that either he'll stay on as a producer (in name only, perhaps) for a new Superman movie, or that Lois has a bit of a surprise waiting for her when she comes back from the Daily Planet early one day.
