Lightbulb Let's make a movie!!! How about we make an unofficial Superman screenplay for SHH?!

Ok...so I visited Clark's thread about how he had a script and wanted some thoughts, and gave him some of mine, but they end up turning into a full out script for a sequel. Which is what he didn't want as he is trying to do a revamp for Returns..............

So I got to thinking why waste such a good idea for a sequel. How about we~hypesters, create our own script!! Whoever wants in on this can join. Something to be proud of and work with others on.

I do not know a lot about the Superman comics, as I only watch the movies and tv shows, but I have a real knack for story telling, film composition, analysis, and theory. I have a minor in Communication and Culture: Concentration Film and am really good at character analysis and narrative, but need help on many other things, in addition to research.

So here is where you guys come in. If you are interested, lets put some things on paper and get something published. You never know who is on here or who might come across this.

I write scripts am always interested in meeting others who do the same and hearing what they have to say, however I haven't tackled a Superman Script yet.

Here are my ideas for a Sequel that we can start with. Please tell me what you think:

Superman is doing his daily thing of patrolling the world when all of a sudden a small vortex or wormhole opens up in the city [don't know if it should be at night or in the day, but similar to that on Sliders or T3: Rise of the machines].

Out comes Supergirl whom Superman has never met and is suprisd and shocked like hell that she can do what he can do. LET US forget the Supergirl movie that came out in the 80s, lets do a collaboration.

Anyway, Supergirl... [not wearing the outfit that we see in the comics, but has the "S" on her chest or in the upper right hand corner in silver, like the cloth we see in the First Superman Movie 78]....she pleads with Kal-el to come with her to help save her planet and fight alongside her and the resistance in a inter-galactic battle or war.

In another thread I said that they should Make the new Superman movie a cross between Chronicles of Riddick and Serenity, with some seriously strong and formidable bad aliens, humanoid or not, and have spaceships and stuff. Just think of the scene in Chronicles of Riddick, if you have seen it, where the Necro-mongers are flying there space cruisers and that huge ships enters the atmosphere and smashes into the ground. The special FXs were dope!

Anyway, Superman is teamed up with some of his sister planet forces, fighting the worst destroyer and tyrant of the cosmos [enter] Darkseid.

During this time with Supergirl....he learns about his origins more and see's more clips of his father, Ga-rel and mother. His learns of its destruction more and that SOME Kryptonians, escaped to the sister planet.

This can reference and contrast Returns where Clark said he went to the location that astronomist said Krypton was and there was nothing left.
"HE DIDN'T Go beyond that location" This could shock the hell out of him.

BUT HERE IS THE TWIST.......The sister planet that the new Kryptonians live on and Supergirl lives on has a partial red/yellow sun, but mostly red.Wow. So the Kryptonians are a little strong, but it is normal to them because they all are. So they think nothing of it.

Here is where it gets interesting (Oh I am making all of this up right now as I am telling you. I swear I have never even thought of a Supes movie, if that means anything).
But back to what I was saying....He finds himself getting weaker because of the partial red sun, while being there for this time. It makes his battle with Darkseid more interesting because he has to strategize and work with the Resistance more to beat Darkseid and his Super-strong forces.

They Kryptonians win the battle, but then Darkseid, after finding out where Kal-el has come from, because he either 1) has his alien scientist test his blood {from the battle} and finds out that he is a true Kryptonian and that his blood isn't mixed with whatever planet Kara ~Super/Girl is from OR 2) He uses his technology and tracks that a wormhole has been open right around the same time Kal-el got here and pinpoints the galaxy and location Superman is from then deciding to invade earth. BIG mistake!

Darkseid and his armada gets to Earth before Supes does and does some major destruction. Earth's forces do little to stop them and are in parrel.

Supes and the Resistance, OR just Supes [don't know which one is better] comes back to Earth and gains his full power, via our yellow Sun.

He surprises the hell out of Darkseid as he has never seen this type of POWER before and makes Darkseid all the more interested in him.

Darkseid wants to fight Superman himself as he thinks he has a worthy opponent, although, Darkseid thinks Kal-el, is very inferior and an insignificant life form.

Battle of the century and for not only our world, because if Superman falls then Darkseid's reign may advance.

What do you think, I kinda like this as I just made it up???

Please alter, delete, or take parts that you find interesting, if any at all.

But I even think by doing a two battle scenario, that this movie could be split up into two halves, [DC needs to start thinking outside the box, big time, if they want to compete with Marvel in the box office, TDK not included].

But we can split it up in two parts like Lord of the Rings. MORE SUPERMAN in half the time it takes to do a classic sequel.

No!
Sorry, but I don't like it.
Supergirl, not like many of you think, is a bad concept. Kal-El should be the last kryptonian, like the Byrne's version.
Darkseid is a New Gods character, so it's a big no for him also.

Everytime I try to imagine Superman fighting a supervillain, the image starts to look silly.

The right way is an adaptation of PEACE ON EARTH. If you don't have it, buy it. It's the best Superman story ever.

Eh, I'd wait until Kal-El and Doomsday put each other into pine boxes (or worse, if only to make sure they don't come back) at the end of the franchise before bringing in Supergirl, and then a version of the DCAU Supergirl (Kara In-ze) so as to keep her origin Silver-Age-simple without sacrificing Superman's standing as the last Kryptonian. The film would end with her trudging off to the Fortress with a crystal of her own in hand, much like young Clark in S:TM, to unlock her destiny.

Granted, this pretty much disavows the Kid, but then I'm sure quite a few people wouldn't argue with THAT...

Darkseid has been a major Superman villain for around 30 years.

I believe you'll find most people will disagree with you.

Yeah...Darkseid would be a great villain for Superman to have a final battle sequence with. If not him definitely someone who is as/or more powerful than he is. A real challenge!

Supergirl could be a nice tie in if we do not make her "Title" so obvious. We could call her Kara through out the movie, like they do in Smallville, and she can wear a small 'S' on her chest or shoulder to symbolize the symbol for the resistance.

They should not wait to bring her in until the end of the Superman series, that would be very cliche. Bring her in as a rebel in the war.

Superman movies need to go into a different direction than what has been presented to us. More fighting...less man/woman romantic drama....More action....less boyscout/lets act like Capt. Planet themes.
