Saying Millar lacks imagination is pretty unfair. Considering his body of work, especially the most recent and including his take on Superman. It does seem odd that he's damming the project in such a way though. Then again, unlike Marvel WB execs aren't really good at translating 50plus year superheros consistently. I mean the GL film is precisely the issue Millar is speaking on and I'm sure if it were are Marvel(as flawed as they are) it would have been some sort of hit.

To say Millar is just a Fox/Marvel boy isn't fair either, he's spoken very very positively about all things MoS so far and recently.

"A man named Hal Jordan was recruited 45 years ago into the Lantern core, flight testing in the midst of the Viet war. He hasn't returned to the relatively measured as primitive earth since. Upon his return from what could be considered hell, the weathered soldier and man out of time has short trimmed grey hair, scars, and a warning of a looming threat that motivated his return to his home planet. He's also surprised and weary to see a Kryptonian on Earth"
