My e-mail is awash with reports that there will be no Superman movie in the near future.
This, evidently, is news. Something not happening. Is news.
Everyday, I get messages that there is no plan for a live-action, feature-length, theatrical-release of a Superman movie. There are so many of these reports that I won't even bother linking to any of them.
Why is this important?
Well, according to one poll, Superman is the one comic book film that people want to see.
And the reason there's no Superman film in the works? I don't know. Maybe it has something to do with the legal stuff going on.
