recent NEWS and some RUMORS
Christopher Nolan the director of Batman Begins and the Dark Knight is tapped to helped in mentoring the next adventure of Superman. He will not direct he will just play a sort of "Godfather" role in overlooking the movie.
#c: I'm excited with this because of the possibility of cross-polinating the franchise. I'm just not sure how he could ground Superman in much reality due to the character's very fantastic background but we'll see.
DIRECTOR and some of the MAJOR CASTS
Director:To be determined
#c: Don't let Bryan Singer get near this next movie, I don't want to watch another rehash of the Donner films. If I want to watch Donner's Superman I'll watch Donner's Superman not Singer mimicking Donner.
Superman: To be determined
#c: Routh I think was good for the role but sad to say after that misstep in Superman Returns I doubt he'll be back wearing the Big Blue Boyscout's uniform again.

For they who are not one of us :)
Brief Comic History:
Superman is a comic book superhero appearing in publications by DC Comics. Created by writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster in 1932 while both were living in Cleveland, Ohio, and sold to Detective Comics, Inc. in 1938, the character's first appearance is in Action Comics #1 (June 1938). With the success of his adventures, Superman helped create the superhero genre.
Superman possesses extraordinary powers, with the character traditionally described as "faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound". For most of his existence, Superman's famous arsenal of powers has included flight, super-strength, invulnerability to non-magical attacks, super-speed, vision powers (including x-ray, heat-emitting, telescopic, infra-red, and microscopic vision), super-hearing, and super-breath, which enables him to blow out air at freezing temperatures, as well as exert the propulsive force of high-speed winds.
