At this rate I’ll be married by the time it comes out (and – sadly – that probably won’t happen for a long, long, long time)!!

SUPERMAN Loses A Director…Again
Warner Bros has lost McG again as the director of SUPERMAN V, which was scheduled for late 2004. The director has had an on-again, off-again relationship with the project for some time, although the latest attempt was considered solid.
According to Warner, they and the director split amicably after they were unable to reach an agreement over budget and location. McG wanted to shoot in New York, while Warner wanted it shot in Australia, saving millions of dollars.
“When I flew to New York to scout,” McG said in a statement, “I became enamored with our greatest American city. It was clear to me that this was Metropolis. As a filmmaker, I felt it was inappropriate to try to capture the heart of America on another continent. I look at Superman as a character that embodies all that is beautiful about America.”
Another reported disagreement between McG and Warner was over casting; Warner wanted a Big Name, while McG wanted unknowns. As a result, no casting has taken place.
McG’s exit will undoubtedly fire up the rumor mill again; indeed, it began last week when the Superman logo reportedly appeared on director Michael Bay’s website. Bay has been rumored for the project for years, and McG’s exit opens the door for him, although both Bay denies any involvement in the project.
With McG’s exit, Warner may opt to scrap J.J. Abrams’ script, as they are not tied to it, even with McG’s leaving.
