Default Details for the Superman Returns Sequel That Never Was (From Michael Dougherty)


Last week, behind-the-scenes images finally surfaced of the Superman Lives costume for the defunct Tim Burton film. Now, glance further into the alternate universe of Superman films that never were as Michael Dougherty reveals (courtesy of Moviehole) what would have happened in his proposed sequel to 2006's Superman Returns.

Promising first and foremost that the sequel would have been action heavy, Dougherty explained that it would have revolved around a group of Kryptonians who come to Earth and, while they wouldn't have been outright evil a la General Zod, they would have challenged Superman's views of his role on Earth.

"Brainiac was always intersting," Dougherty also teased, regarding what classic Superman villains he would have included in the screenplay.

The Trick 'r Treat director also offered some hope for fans who would like to see Brandon Routh again don the cape and tights, though admits that he doesn't have any specific insider knowledge.

“I’m sure they’ll talk," he said, referring to the upcoming Warner Bros. production, "... at least I’d like to think so”.
