Bryan Singer, director of Superman Returns, said that he isn't committed to any follow-up films.

"I haven't decided yet," Singer told the Trenton (N.J.) Times. "It's like X-Men. Every film is different and I make my mind up based on the individual film."

Singer said that Superman Returns is the biggest film he's ever made, but Australian reports of the budget have been exaggerated.

"It's a very expensive picture," he said, "but it's under $200 million."

Singer, who grew up in New Jersey, was talking to the newspaper prior to an appearance at the Princeton Public Library. Look for coverage of Singer's appearance on Monday here in The Continuum. - More Product. More Exclusives.
