Mark Millar Pitches his "Godfather-Like" Superman Movie Trilogy

Comics writer and recent movie-maker (Wanted and Kick-Ass) Mark Millar fills us in on what he wants to do for the Superman movie franchise--An epic 3-film, 8-hour story which follows the entire life of Kal-El from his birth on Krypton a thousand years ago, till he is the last being left on Earth.

Here's a bit from Empire Magazine...

“It’s gonna be like Michael Corleone in the Godfather films, the entire story from beginning to end, you see where he starts, how he becomes who he becomes, and where that takes him. The Dark Knight showed you can take a comic book property and make a serious film, and I think the studios are ready to listen to bigger ideas now.”

“The problem with Superman Returns was like releasing Star Wars in ’77, The Empire Strikes Back in ’80 and then waiting 28 years to release Return of the Jedi, it wasn’t relevant. I understand what Bryan Singer was trying to do, to pay homage to Richard Donner’s original vision, but I think you should pay homage by doing something completely different.”

“I want to start on Krypton, a thousand years ago, and end with Superman alone on Planet Earth, the last being left on the planet, as the yellow sun turns red and starts to supernova, and he loses his powers."


The "Godfather" of superhero films? That's like making CBM fans an offer we can't refuse. Count me in.
