Max Landis' Death & Return Of Superman Pitch Is More Entertaining Than MAN OF STEEL
Earlier this year, Max Landis ("Chronicle") was approached by DC Comics to work on a weekly year-long series, with Greg Pak, that would've rebooted The Death & Return Of Superman. Even though it never materialized, Max has posted a video detailing his plan.
Max Landis is one of those people that you either love, or you hate. And I must confess, that at one point in the not so distant past, I found him to be rather annoying. But, the more I hear from him, the more I like. He wears his geekiness on his sleeve, and always presents his comic-based ideas with an enthusiasm that is as contagious as MEV-1.
So, do you have forty-two minutes to spare? If that's a no, it's unacceptable. Make time. As you'll remember, this super-nerd, who also wrote Chronicle, became a YouTube sensation when he created a star-studded, low-budget recap of "The Death of Superman." So, fire up the popcorn, and enjoy!
CHRONICLE - 2012 American science fiction film directed by Josh Trank, and written by Max Landis, based on a story by both. Three Seattle high-school seniors, bullied Andrew (Dane DeHaan), his cousin Matt (Alex Russell) and more popular Steve (Michael B. Jordan) form a bond after gaining telekinetic abilities from an unknown object. They first use their abilities for mischief and personal gain, until Andrew turns to darker purposes.
