SUPERMAN: Warner Bros. Reportedly Developing A Live-Action RED SON Movie

SUPERMAN: Warner Bros. Reportedly Developing A Live-Action RED SON Movie

Superman: Red Son tells the story of a Kal-El who crash landed in Soviet Russia rather than Kansas and a variety of sources are now reporting that a live-action adaptation of that tale is in the works...

It started with an exchange between Mark Millar and Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts which saw the latter reveal that Warner Bros. had turned down his pitch for a Superman: Red Son movie but Den of Geek claims to have heard from "very, very, very reliable sources" that the studio is looking to bring the Mark Millar penned comic to the big screen at some point in the near future.

Millar has said on Twitter that Warner Bros. has met with at least two filmmakers to discuss the property and provided a statement to the site in which he says, "I've got pals at Warner Bros but never discussed it with them. I think they're just going through their back catalogue of big books and hoping to lure in good directors as opposed to any particular interest in developing Red Son."

It's far from confirmed as happening just yet, but between the comments made by Vogt-Roberts and Millar and the site's claims that they've heard it's potentially in the works, the signs are looking good.

Superman: Red Son is a very interesting DC Comics property to adapt and isn't exactly the Superman tale we expected to see on the big screen next. Man of Steel 2 has seemingly been stuck in development hell for a while and it's not clear right now whether Henry Cavill would play a Russian (and somewhat villainous) version of the character or if the studio would recast him and new versions of Batman and Wonder Woman. It also feels like an R-Rating would suit this property well.
