America's big blue flying boy scout will be back. Warner Brothers promised that if Superman Returns made more than $200 million domestically they'd greenlight a sequel to Singer's instant superhero classic, and now that it has they're moving forward on a sequel.

IESB says that Bryan Singer finalized a deal to make his Superman Returns follow up last weekend, and that he may start production on it next fall. Now that Superman's reintroduction is out of the way, they say expect more action this time around. Look for Superman in "full action battle mode". Sounds good.

For Warner Brothers the really good news is that even with more action sequences the second movie should be much cheaper to produce. For Superman's Return, Singer had to develop completely new technology to make a lot of his effects work. With the processes already created, all he'll have to do is reuse them.
