For half the cash, it seems we’re getting twice the excitement and everything that was missing from the first picture. He also says he’s getting all Wrath of Kahn on this one… which is cool if he means they’re firing the people who did the first flick and bringing in a whole new writer/ director team.
Good news for anyone who’s always wanted a remake of Superman 2, I guess… with Superman’s kid.
Who would Millar rather see attached to the project?
[Brett] Ratner would be better. Seriously. Ditto Michael Bay. Bay can be awful. Truly, truly awful. But when he’s on he’s the best action guy in town. I think he would have raised his game for Supes… [Ratner's] Red Dragon is perfect. It’s a really slick movie. And X3 was OK, given what he was working under. Would have loved to have seen him bring back Supes for a new generation (as he planned with a new Krypton, etc, etc) as opposed to the wank-fest for the over 35s Singer did. I want someone to remake Jaws just so Singer knows the agony I’ve gone through since that flick!!!
