Used the current economic crisis as a backdrop, but was kind of expecting more references. Maybe: "Evil AIG Execs Wreaking Havoc on Wall St. and Main St., Chaos Ensues"? "Rupert Murdoch Slashes Jobs, Kills off Daily Planet"? "Mortgage Crisis Puts Local Resident Clark Kent on the Streets"? "Octo-Mom's Babies are Mutants! More On the Way"? None of these could've been at the hands of Luthor?
And, no, there's still nothing on a new installment in the franchise.
It wasn't intended that while updates on "Iron Man 2" have come out, I posted the Funny or Die video instead, even though the video means absolutely nothing for the next film. Call me a DC fanatic, I suppose. (Truth be told, I'm supremely excited about Mickey Rourke's official involvement in the sequel, playing an evil Russian which is a composite character, and hope some exciting things come out of the development cycle for us to read about and pore over. I'm disappointed about Scarlett Johansson, though, if only because Emily Blunt would've made a killer Black Widow. When you're hot, you're hot, and Blunt still has some people to please before she becomes the star that she deserves to be.)
Should Warner Bros. pursue another round of Superman Saves the Day?
