Superman Revamp On the Way!

CBM broke the story that Warner Bros was interested to see how The Incredible Hulk did because they were considering a redo of Superman, well now comes this news...

"Wanted" creator and comic book writer extraordinaire Mark Millar may just be the one to remake the Superman franchise. In this interview with Scotland's Daily Record he let drop this bombshell...

Mark's big dream is making a Superman movie.

He said: "Since I was a kid I've always wanted to reinvent Superman for the 21st century.

"I've been planning this my entire life. I've got my director and producer set up, and it'll be 2011. This is how far ahead you have to think.

"The Superman brand is toxic after that last movie lost Û200million, but in 2011 we're hoping to restart it.

"Sadly I can't say who the director is, but we may make it official by Christmas.

"But fingers crossed it could work out, that would be my lifetime's dream."


So, it sounds as though something is in the works. Does it not?

UPDATE: Here's a bit more from Millar's messageboard...

Millar later clarified on his message boards:

That Superman news is interesting, isn't it? In the interests of clarity (because I'm sure this will be picked up somewhere) a very well known American action director heard about my love of Superman, approached my and asked me to team up with he and his producer to make a pitch for this. We've been talking for several weeks now and, if this is going to happen, we'll know by Christmas. He has huge pull at WB so fingers crossed. But this is nothing more than a huge US name pulling me into his fold and making me part of a package."
