Superman: Man of Steel slated to begin filming in 2009

Quite a few people thought that Superman Returns wasn't so hot. Sure, it did great at the box office, and it wasn't necessarily a bad movie by any standards; just a little too philosophical for a Superman film. So news of the sequel, Man of Steel isn't really being met with the same enthusiasm as the first film. Still though, filming must go on, and according to Brandon Routh that filming will begin early next year. Routh told Hollywood that the script is actively being written and worked on, and Routh's timeline has him beginning filming early next year. He also mentioned that Justice League Confusion is really on the back-burner and doesn't know if its coming or going, so the focus of WB and DC will be on Superman early next year.
