"So my agenda is to make another one, I just have to figure out a plot that makes sense," he continued. "I'm close, though. On my dressing table, I have a whole list of notes about it."

MTV: [MNSHY] talks Unbreakable 2. Antibody May 30, 10:55

Does anyone actually want another Unbreakable? Wasn't the first one bad enough? {nm} lapuckfan May 30, 11:06

Yes, I enjoyed it. The post-script was unnecessary, but Unbreakable was the original Man of Steel. {nm} Antibody May 30, 11:39

Sixth Sense and Unbreakable are the two of his that I liked and I wouldn't mind an Unbreakable 2. As for the Man of Steel comparison... {nm} KalElFan May 30, 12:00

Unbreakable was "original" in a way, and did pay homage to comics including Superman, but obviously Superman began in the 1930s. {nm} KalElFan May 30, 12:02

But did any of those comics actually explore the years between Smallville and Metropolis? Batman Begins and Man of Steel owe Antibody May 30, 12:06

The Superman 1978 origin story did, the comics had Superboy in the late 40s, and Smallville was in development in the late 1990s. {nm} KalElFan May 30, 12:21

No, Superman 1978 jumped to Clark Kent already a reporter. Superboy was just a younger Superman. {nm} Antibody May 30, 12:27

No, Jeff East never wore the suit and had scenes with Pa Kent, Lana Lang, and even racing a train with a young Lois on it. {nm} KalElFan May 30, 12:35

Superman 1978 just accepted his powers and the film jumped from teen Clark to adult Clark. {nm} Antibody May 30, 12:50

Well they spent as much time on it as a Superman movie could, some say too much. As for "accepting" that's debatable. {nm} KalElFan May 30, 12:56

Huh? So you're saying 'Man of Steel' is going to be too much? {nm} Antibody May 30, 13:14

Nope, don't know. Personally I thought the 1978 movie was about right with the backstory. SUPR2 may have better Krypton backstory. {nm} KalElFan May 30, 15:00

SUPR2 has a ton more backstory than 1978 exploring Clark Kent leaving Smallville traveling the world to find himself. {nm} Antibody May 30, 16:15

If the next TV spot or trailer touts "a ton more backstory" I'm shorting it. :-) {nm} KalElFan May 30, 16:26

Batman I'm not sure, though I loved Batman Begins. The original pitch for the Smallville TV series was actually "Young Bruce Wayne". {nm} KalElFan May 30, 12:24

Smallville debuted a year after Unbreakable. {nm} Antibody May 30, 12:28

Debuted, yes. But it was announced more than a year prior and in development before that. Unbreakable had zero influence on it. {nm} KalElFan May 30, 12:38

Still it was just a teen Clark Smallville. Not the Clark depicted between Smallville and Metropolis in 'Man of Steel'. {nm} Antibody May 30, 12:46

That part of the SUPR2 trailers pay HEAVY homage to Smallville + Superman '78. The kid's the spitting image of Tom Welling in one clip. {nm} KalElFan May 30, 12:50

Brandon Routh lost out to Welling for the Smallville role BTW. {nm} KalElFan May 30, 12:54

I also liked Unbreakable until the last part, which more or less ruined it for me. Sixth Sense is a masterpiece though {nm} Zorglub May 30, 14:56

Unbreakable 2 should be a non issue after this weekend {nm} RazorHawk May 30, 11:56

MNSHY is nowhere to be found in the marketing. 1THAE is on the Smiths. {nm} Antibody May 30, 12:01

enough people know its m night. he made the terrible looking thing, he'll get the 'credit' {nm} islander May 30, 12:14

Personally, I didn't even notice it was MNS until about a week ago. I think it's mostly associated with Smith & Son & the Premise. {nm} KalElFan May 30, 12:30

That's the only movie of his I really liked. But don't see how a sequel would work - since the twist was most of the enjoyment JDolphin May 30, 12:04

I enjoyed it too....except the ending broke the "show it don't tell it" rule...I know I've heard that somewhere {nm} tealfan May 30, 12:09

After 15 years (by the time it gets made or released), a "reimagining" and/or Next Generations kind of thing is also possible. {nm} KalElFan May 30, 12:27

I loved Unbreakable. Would love to see #2, but BWILL might be too old now. They could show what it's like to be a geriatric superhero. {nm} elchan May 30, 14:09

e should just look for something else to do, movies don't seem to be his thing. His first was the only decent thing he has made, imo.. {nm} tatoufan May 30, 12:32

he could probably crank out dozens of new Twilight Zone episodes {nm} tealfan May 30, 12:35

The pilot script that he's directing for the limied series WAYWARD PINES is interesting in a Twilight Zone-esque way. {nm} skamanfu May 30, 13:18

Or a Twin Peaks kind of way, eh? :-) {nm} KalElFan May 30, 16:38
