Frank Miller Superman comic

Comic book writer and artist Frank Miller believes he’s never had a “meaningful crack at Superman.” He’s now taking his shot with a new Superman project. The author of The Dark Knight Returns, Sin City, and Batman: Year One is revolving his Superman story around the Man of Steel’s younger years. “It’s telling his beginnings from when Pa Kent discovered him in the cornfield, and the little boy goes to youth, and then to manhood,” Miller said. According to artist John Romita Jr., who worked with Miller on “Daredevil: The Man Without Fear,” Superman: Year One isn’t exactly a retelling of that familiar tale.

Below, Romita Jr. discusses the Frank Miller Superman comic.

This storyline has since become the go-to origin tale for the character, heavily inspiring other comic creators and Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins. Now, Miller is looking to do the same for another iconic DC superhero. At Comic-Con 2017, Miller revealed that he’s set to tackle Superman: Year One.

Aronofsky batman movie

Frank Miller has been one of the most fascinating people in the comic industry for over thirty years now, writing and drawing stories that have left a profound impact on how we view the medium. He’s also created his fair share of controversial material, work that forces you to confront his earlier comics in a new light. He’s not the kind of artist who you simply embrace. To appreciate Frank Miller is to struggle with Frank Miller and the giant thumbprint he’s left on superhero comics.

And he’s impacted few characters quite like how he’s impacted Batman. In fascinating new interview, Miller speaks about his work, his politics, whether or not he watches movies influences by his work, and, most fascinatingly, the work he did with director Darren Aronofsky on an unmade Batman film.

Sin City A Dame to Kill For - Marv poster header

Judging by the first box-office numbers for the Sin City sequel, the real question here might be “did you even see it?” Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez have returned to the black, white, and bloody world of their first collaboration with a couple more stories adapted from Miller’s Sin City comics stories, along with some new material. The first film was novel and striking in aesthetic, and the sequel still looks like almost nothing else.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For brings back some familiar faces (Powers Boothe, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson ,and Mickey Rourke in extreme makeup) to get into some super-dark and violent dealings with new characters played by Eva Green, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Christopher Meloni. Josh Brolin takes over the character originally played by Clive Owen, while Dennis Haysbert inherits the role originated by the late Michael Clarke Duncan.

That’s a lot of talent, but do all their efforts make for a film that offers audiences a satisfying trip to the underbelly of Sin City? Weigh in below.
