See?  I hope it does, I really hope it does, I even Superhope it does, but I just don't see it happening (taking over Spidey's slot of biggest).  I really hope I am wrong.  It will have my opening weekend money, and if as good as I want it to be, another ticket a week or so later.  Not trying to be a downer on it, but that is just my opinion of how it will pan out at the end.

My opinion is I will support both on their opening weekends.

Superman Returns

Despite haven't seen the film (ofcourse?!?!), I have a fairly high expectation on it and I am very sure Singer will make it to be so Awesome!!

Superman
Thanks for correcting me Gabe.  I should clarify myself.  From what we know, with Supes being gone for so long and returning to find Lois married with kids, etc.  I'm a bit upset that Brian and Co. has ONCE AGAIN deviated from the comic book continuity. No big deal, though. I understand how Hollywood works.  
Like I said before though, i'll check it out.  I just don't have my hopes up high.
That better?  LOL[/quote]


I have to admit the plot has got me a little scared about it.
I mean superman has been around for like 80years, so why not use one of the stories from the true continuety?
But I like Singers work, and Kevin Spacey as lex is class.
Id say that when all is said and done it will be an ace film.

As for x3.......well the trailer didnt realy do anything for me ( apart from angel flying )
But as its aparently the last one and dark phonix is in it, it should be worth watching.

I'm still upset over The Punisher.  I'm a huge comic book fan.  I think it's because I didn't want to see Travolta in it.
Gabe,

I just watched X2 now, and I have to say, I was pretty impressed and disappointed in myself from not watching it when I first bought it. I don't really think it was the best superhero film though, as I still think it's a tie between Batman Begins and Spider-Man II

Chris Reeve Ed? Wheelchair?
Superman holds more interest for me than X3 but I don't think X3 is going to be (or deserve) the stink that some are predicting. The full trailer for X3 looks fine to me. The way it can fail (artistically) is if the tone has massively changed from the first 2 films. This could (and probably will) upset existing fans. As for all the Brett Ratner hate going on, I would like to think that the film will be great just to quiet those people down. He may not be a ground breaking film maker, but of the films (of his) that I've seen, they may be light weight but they couldn't be classed as badly made films. Just listening to his commentaries reveals someone who does at least put a degree of thought into his work so I wish him and the film well.

As for Superman, I think this is definately going to be the one to see. But the weight of expectation could dampen this one at the box office. I can't see it being a failure but it still has the potential (like any summer blockbuster) to under perform.

And Tony, you do need to see X2, I think it's my favourite all time super hero movie.

Superman Returns in contrast, looks Awesome!!!

It's the matter of the man called 'Bryan Singer'!!!

The trailers for X3 were way better than anything put forth for Superman Returns so far.  I'm not really psyched about Supes Return for the simple fact that I'm not too crazy about the plotline.  Doens't mean I won't see it though.
I'm more psyched about the X-Men movie because it was a long time coming to bring them to the screen.  Regardless of whether the movie kicks ass or bombs, I'm just glad they were brought to the big screen.  It was a fun ride.
I was dissapointed by the fact that Bryan Singer left X3 to do Superman Returns as he had done a great job with the first 2   X-Men films (Perhaps that was why Warner wanted him for Supes)
I think X3 will be average but SR will probably be kick ass!!!!
seeing both.

But SUPERMAN RETURNS for sure.
I was high on X3 until I started seeing the trailers.  The Beast looks awful and I will keep expecting him to take calls for psychiatric help during the movie.

At this point, I think Superman will be better because of Singer and because they chose a relative unknown to play Superman.
I want to like X men more, but my hopes are low simply based on the production. Superman is, in contrast, a character I'm not a huge fan of, but Singer is such an artist that I can't help but assume his picture will be better.
I'm looking forward to both equally.  If I had to choose I'd go for X-Men simply because they've got a superhero in a wheelchair Happy (I'm a wheelchair user myself)
I'll watch both and enjoy both but if I had to choose to only see one then that movie would be "Superman Returns". I can't wait till that day when I'm in the cinema and the Superman theme music starts, it's gonna be magical.
Ha ha.  Roll on the Marvel vs DC debate but my money is firmly on Superman Returns

Ill see both, however I'm anticpating Xmen alot more than SR.
MGR
I will see both of them
Kinda hard to decide without seeing a full Superman trailer like X3 has.

They damn well should. I plan on seeing both this summer, however, I've waited for "Superman Returns" for far too long to skip it. So if I had to only choose one, Kal-El gets my money.
There is nothing else as important to me this summer. It's "Superman Returns." I hope they add a dedication to Christopher and Dana Reeve.
I still haven't been able to see X2 yet, but I'll see them both, but I'm looking forward to Superman the most.
Superman Returns or X3
Which one of these movies do you want to see the most?  My vote is "Superman Returns" however I will see both.
