SUPERMAN may be too broke to return. Speculation is abundant as the people-that-be look at the financial possibilities of a sequel to SUPERMAN RETURNS. My question is: How much SHOULD it have made? It made over $200 million, before DVD sales.Yes, its budget was astronomical, but is that the fault of viewers that wanted to see it? Was there a way to make it more cheaply and get it done? For instance, I think they didn't need to rebuild a Kent farm from scratch as it was barely in the movie! This is another case of a movie production company having eyes way too big and greenlighting everything. I'm betting that it could have been done cheaper if director Bryan Singer was told to make it cheaper. So we fans are going to be the ones that get hurt here.
