The bad news is that Christopher Reeve obviously can't be involved, and I don't know if the guy they've got playing Supes can cut it.
The good news is that thry've got Brain Singer at the helm. Brian Singer, as most of you know, is responsible for The Usual Suspects, X-Men, and what's widely known as the greatest comic book movie of all time, X2.
i'm a little more optimistic. I hope they bring in Lex Luthor and Braniac.
