If you've heard anything about Millar's take on a mainstream Superman, you'd know that this would be like Schumacher's Batman all over again.

He'll give them what they want. A Millar revamp could be crazy though I don't think that's what WB will be looking for after Justice League.

If it were 616 Hulk that Millar had done that to, then I could completely understand your argument, but Ultimate Hulk was a new slate for him to work with. Other than being the superstrong alterego of Bruce Banner (and even that might not have been a requirement; who knows), Millar was under no obligation to make the character have any similarity to the mainstream Hulk.

The issue is that when comic book writers write movies, they make them TOO outrageous. Yet when screenplay writers write comic movies they don't make them outrageous enough.

That's a very good point! It's not easy to get the right writer who can find the perfect middle ground.

As long as its fun (which SR was not), action-packed, somewhat thought-provoking and not campy, let Millar write it.

How long until someone post that interview with Millar where he talks about his thoughts on Superman.

Red Son was brilliant. I love most of Millar's work up until this point, but that doesn't change the fact that he has some real backwards-ass ideas about Superman. If I can find the interview, I'll post it.

Mark Millar from The Authority? Hmmm, it could be interesting. But he might want to put a "spin" on Superman that the fanboys will hate just as much as The Kid.

Maybe they could get Millar as story consultant or as a co-writer to someone with actual experience in writing screenplays for movies. I'm not confident in his ability as a screenwriter as to opposed to his work on comic books .I love his enthusiasm though.

Something tells me that Warners offices will be bombarded with phone calls in the next few days. This is a job so many writers would kill for.

Mark Millar and Mark Waid should be consultants or should write the story and then bring in a good screenwriter.

They should use the same format as they did with the Nolans and Goyer.

When he says "revamp Superman"

What does that mean exactly?

Start the franchise over?

If so, I'm so NOT for it.

A complete revamp would be a mistake IMO also.

I hope McQuarrie gets hired to write the screenplay and maybe bring in Mark Waid to consult on the story.
