I think that’s a good thing because I think the character has a great kind of high concept power, and I think the fact that it’s lesser known means that we’re actually freer to kind of adapt the material, which I think is a good thing. Because I think sort of, you know, Man Of Steel has proved that people sort of like for a character that decades old, some people have a very strong opinion of what he should and shouldn’t do. And personally I find that really difficult to actually try and make a movie with, people sort of being so kind of impassioned about what the character is. The whole idea is you’re doing an adaptation. I mean Chris Nolan’s Batman is very different to Tim Burton’s Batman, which is very different to Adam West Batman. And there’s room for all three. The character can support that in the same way that six James Bonds are all different. So I think the nice thing about that title and that character is that there is a bit more license to kind of do something different with it.
