This is the nature of the business. It's almost hit or miss in some instances.
i think its imposible to make hte movie like the script. changs happen everytime. but from what you said singer changed............a lot
he changed a lot while filming but the finale was in the editing where he took away teh scene that was important. the title is superman returns but SR starts with a campy lex scene. ''the rest is mine''

and lets compare the landing scene of SR and TF. i am 100% sure that when i read that the ship will land next to marthas house i was 100% sure that it would look like in TF where optimus lands. but singer wanted a deep scene so he showed us only the reflection. TF was direct. it showed how teh hip landed .....you saw everything.

That is the difference between Bay and Singer. Bay does things in a more "fantastic" way than Singer. What I mean by that, is that Bay doesn't try and ground everything into reality. Actually, Bay is Singer's Bizzaro. Everything Singer does, Bay does the opposite.

You can bet if Bay did Superman Returns there would be alien invasions, robotic guards, scenes of Superman and the American flag. Singer's polar opposite.

I'd like to see what Miller comes up with for a Superman movie.

and i htink that this news is so special because he said free.
i think that if you would ask 100 comicbook writter more then 50% would say that they would do a script for cheap money.

I think it's the fact that he's got hundreds of pages of notes and he's been waiting for the opportunity forever that interests me. Not that he's willing to write the thing for free.

This is pretty cool, i at least say give the man a chance cause he seems like he actually cares about the product, and being a comic writer i bet he has rich knowledge of the character more than some people. My ONLY wish to watever he does revamp or sequel or a sequel revamp WB PLEASE KEEP ROUTH!!

But since he said his treatment is being polished as we type.....does that mean hes almost done??!!

I'm not disagreeing with you, it's just you're not going to get as much bang for your buck with Singer as you do with Bay.

if this rumor is true we might as well give him a chance. david goyer was really a hack before he came up with the batman begins story. blade's 1 and 2 were stupid.

Actually, Millar presents a lot of the same problems that a lot of fanboys associated with Singer and his team: too dark and cynical.

Sure, give him a shot. But in the meantime get somebody who actually knows how to write a movie script too. The film and comic medium are so different to write for. If anything, I say, let him write out an outline for a film. If the ideas are baller as hell, let him try to write it. In the meantime have somebody else go for a different take. Then decide.

I say, let Millar work on the story outline and on the take and let a very talented (movie) scribe write the actual screenplay with him.

I like Millar's comic work, and am interested to see what he would do, but I think he is best off writing else world stories when it comes to Big Blue.

I was gonna say it but you guys beat me to it. Maybe Millar can do the lions share of the work and an experienced film scribe consult/edit/polish what Millar's working on. I am interested by his saying he has such a backlog of ideas, I'm sure he can put together something pretty compelling pretty easily.

Oh, and to the guy who mentioned Bay as the Anti-Singer. Dude, Bay doing a Superman movie would be so outta control it would be insane. Just thinking of the crazy crap he does I think it would be an intense experience.

Miller? Mark Miller? The guy who turned Ultimate Hulk into being a rip-off of LXG's Mr. Hyde? Cannibal, rapist, murderer? No thanks, I believe a good writer can bring an edge to a character by not having them act out of character. The guys a joke, and anyone who thinks this is a good idea needs to bob for brownies out of a toilet

A reboot is the worst possible idea. Seriously, do we really need four seperate actors playing four seperate versions of Superman all within a couple of years? It's ridiculous, and it's not going to happen.

Considering that Warner Bros wants a sequel, a reboot is very unlikely to happen, but I'd love to see what Millar can do with the character.

I like the idea of someone writing a Superman screenplay who actually reads Superman comics (even writes them occasionally).

Call me crazy I guess.
