Default The last days of krypton

How about the next Supes movie goes back to before Krypton explodes

I've just finished a book by Kevin J Anderson called the last days of krypton, chronicles approx the last year of the palnet.

Zod is the science commissioner, which is handy as he "destroys" all the weapons, including the phantom zone projector, Joe-EL creates, Braniac steals Kandor, thus eliminating the ruling council, leaving Zod to take over by any means required, a Gaurdian of OA arrives on Krypton to offer the services of the GL corp, Zor-EL is the ruler of Argo City and is monitoring the volcanic and seismic situations below the surface...Lara is a promising artisit who marries Jor-EL after braniac departs with kandor....Zod's partner Aeyer discovers the warlord Jax-UR's ancient stockpile of weaponry.. which Zod want to use on rebel citys, but tells the people he will use to protect Krypton from intergalatic attacks..anyway...i reckon that could be a top flick

I would love to see that or even as a mini series on TV or something (that way it could be shown whilst the Superman movies are coming out)

This is a terrific book and would make a somewhat epic movie

When I was writing a Superman Trilogy for my creating writing class, that book formed the flashback saga of the 2nd film.

The first film would have combined Birthright and Secret Origin with the fake invasion being staged by Luthor and the Govt. harnessing the technology from the crystal in Birthright to design a real Kryptonian army's weapons and ships with humans manning them, staging the invasion with John Corben leading the lot posing as an army general.

Supes would foil them naturally with the film ending with him saving the day and revealing the ruse to the world. Luthor desperately tries to harness more tech from the crystal, and inadvertently setting off an energy signal with Brainiac homing in it in the after credits, which goes into the sequel.

Second film goes Godfather Part II on everyone with Brainiac being the present day and Kryptonian villain. Johns' story forms the present day arc and this book forms the flashbacks with Zod and Jor-El's conflict anchoring the arc. Film ends with Brainiac unleashing his powers on Earth, Supes defeating him at the cost of millions of people disappearing at the end of the film.

Third film would deal with the Vanishing (taken from Azarello's For Tomorrow) and combining the story with sections of Godfall and World of New Krypton. Supes tries to find out what's happened to everybody and in turn discover's them trapped in the Bottle City of Kandor and gets imprisoned and mind-washed by Zod and his minions with Zod ruling Kandor.

Cut out the whole brooding Supes from For Tomorrow and base the film's first three quarters entirely on Kandor with a Nolan-like twist before the final act and Supes escaping Kandor but with him and Zod facing off on Earth.

Just finished this book, it was tremendous but it wouldn't work as a film unless you reworked parts or took parts out. I think it'd work better as a tv series myself.

I always said though that I'd love a trilogy of Superman fims, the first about the last days of Krypton, the 2nd about his time growing up in Smallville and the 3rd film when he finally becomes Superman in Metropolis. Might be a good route to go down in twenty years when they will most likely reboot again lol.

It would also make for a good prequel promotional tv show. The first X-Men movie had one as well, and I think they're great. Would also work as great viral material.

The story treatment that I had worked on used a lot of the material from the film and made it into flashback material, connecting the destruction of Krypton with Brainiac and his corresponding plan for Earth.

I think in a similar way that Nolan's Batman trilogy is delving into the Batman mythos and telling a complete story, we need a Superman trilogy which tells a single story stretched over three films instead of just a villain of the year version which is quite boring and predictable.
