Superman won’t fly

Internet led to Warner rumor

Not much is sacred in Hollywood, but it’s not likely a studio would ever give up a viable franchise.

So an Internet posting Monday suggesting that Warner Bros. is going to put the “Superman Returns” sequel into turnaround generated plenty of surprise around town. Assertion would be on a par with saying Sony or Paramount would put their respective “Spider-Man” and “Indiana Jones” properties into turnaround.

While the Internet is home to both news and pure rumor, the two sometimes get mixed up. The link to the Superman sequel item, which appeared on Moviehole.com, was a top headline on Hollywoodwiretap.com.

When and if Warner’s “Superman Returns” sequel gets made is a separate matter. Helmer Bryan Singer is aboard to direct, but he’s going to helm a movie for United Artists first, so the timing is still a big question, as is the storyline.

One thing is for sure, though: Superman isn’t flying off the Warners lot.
