Bryan Singer, who is the latest rube to get sucked into making the new "Superman" movie, (and no more "X-Men" movies, apparently) may have finally figured out there's already an actor out there PLAYING Superman so why not give the role to him? It's something I have long wondered. Why not tie Smallville in with the new Superman movie? It's not like "Smallville" will be around forever--it's very steadily running itself into the ground with consistant suckiness.
It all strikes me as being a giant "No Duh" Hollywood moment. (As opposed to the "What the?!" Hollywood moment mentioned below.)
