Will The Superman Reboot Be Titled: Kal El?

Posted on 25 January 2011 by Christian

It seems this one slipped by when the James Bond title rumor emerged. In the same forum post the title of Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot is “revealed” as being simply Kal El. Any truth to it? Have a look and decide for yourselves..

ItsJustmovies have picked up on this from the original post at Bleeding Cool
Bleeding Cool as they were looking into the rumor of Bond 23 being titled Red Sky At Night. They came across this message on the forum at www.ajb007.co.uk:

Hi, new here guys, nice to find such a cool site. Im close friends with an art director in the film industry, i wont mention his name but he has worked closely with production designer Michael Carlin and is about to start work in Canada on Kal-El, the next Superman movie. He was busy in 2010 on Bond 23 before it went into hiatus. He told me that the movie for a while had the code name Red Shadow, but when official documentation and the script arrived it contained the title Red Sky At Night and as such was reffered to as this by Sam Mendes, Michael Carlin and the producers and the studio etc. I think its a pretty cool title myself though out of the two Red Shadow is better i think though Red Sky At Night has a classic Bond Movie ring to it. he also said that filming would have been done in Ontario, Canada and there was a large stunt involving the Ontario Tower as well as a huge hockey game and skiing/winter sports sequences. What do you guys think?

Of course we have no way of knowing if this is valid or not. But it seems like such a throwaway reveal that it makes me think it might just be. I guess if Bond turns out to be legitimately titled Red Sky At Night(why?) there is a decent chance that Zack Snyder will be brining us Kal El! Whether its the real deal or not, what do you think of the title? Remember even though most people refer to the reboot at the moment as Man Of Steel, this was only the working title back when the movie was first announced.
