If just one good thing comes out of last month’s Warner Bros.-DC Comics summit, I hope it’s a reboot of the Superman movie franchise based on All-Star Superman.
Oh, you haven’t heard? Grant Morrison is among the writers who’ve pitched the studio an approach that pretends Superman Returns never happened.
“I told them, it’s not that bad,” Morrison tells MTV’s Splash Page. “Just treat Superman Returns as the Ang Lee Hulk.”
Morrison’s idea is a more “tight and concise” take on his All-Star Superman series, which deals with the Man of Steel’s mortality.
The Splash Page article, in which writers Mark Waid, Brad Meltzer and Morrison are asked how they’d revitalize the franchise, also reveals that Geoff Johns has pitched a reboot to Warner Bros.
