Mark Millar has been talking about his pitch for an 8-hour epic trilogy of Superman films for w while now. He even claimed that he was working with an unnamed big director on a pitch for the studio. But now the comic book writer admits on his website that it likely won’t happen after all, or at very least, not anytime soon.
“Warner’s talked to us and a few other writer/ director teams, but things seem to be in stasis right now. As far as I understand, nothing is happening with Superman at the moment and so the director and I are just working on another project. If it happens, great. If it doesn’t, no biggie. Kick-Ass taught me that creating your own stuff can be at least as much fun and you don’t have to answer to anyone. It’s the future, baby.”
I think Warner Bros is being very cautious and are very unsure of how they should proceed with Superman . You have to respect that they aren’t trying to rush a new movie into production in a time when it seems like comic book movies are as hot as they’re going to get.
