Anne Thompson has some tidbit on WATCHMEN and a future Superman film from producer Thomas Tull:
An old Watchmen comics fan, Tull wanted in on the film as soon as Snyder pitched it, even though many people have regarded the complex, layered sci-fi narrative about superheroes who are real as unfilmable. After Tull saw a cut of the movie he told Snyder, “You got it. You nailed it the spirit of it and made it come alive.”
“It’s a smart visually stunning movie,” he told me. Of course he’s vested.
He’s also vested in making the next Superman installment, which is still years away, come to life. While Bryan Singer has been working on Valkyrie, Tull and the folks at Warners have been listening to various screenwriters pitch their solutions to how to make the next Superman work. “It’s an iconic character,” says Tull. “After everything that went into the first film, it’s important to make sure that nothing is rushed and we come out with a fantastic second film.” One thing they all agree on: Superman needs a powerful antagonist, a “worthy opponent,” he says.
