Morrison is freaking awesome. Who else calls on his fans to go on a massive wankathon

Oh well. I absolutely LOVE All Star Superman, so I'd at least be curious to hear what his pitch was.

If I would make a new Superman franchise, I'd actually like to have the tone of Morrison's All Star Superman. You could actually make dozens of Superman movies out of that all star comic book, and the creativity and imagination is limitless in Morrison's world.

Its ok but sometimes it's a little whacky, I mean giving Lois a Super suit for her birthday and all. Its more precrisis Superman but hey it has some awesome art work.

Agreed. I think it would be a great documentary.

Haven't read All Star Superman but i'd love to know what he pitched. I'm guessing it's a reboot but it could be a sequel since he apparently enjoyed SR.

It's supposed to be.

It's also a more intelligent Superman, which I like to see. Lex essentially creates the same Super Suit for himself and boasts about being the only person able to do so, not realizing Superman had already created one for Lois.

sack b singer he does'nt want to do another film. if he did he would just do it but instead he keeps making other films.
if SR was a big hit we would have a new superman film next year but as it did'nt do so well he don't care.
he ran back to do x-men 2 and that i belive was only because xmen1 was a hit.

get richard donnar back see wat he can do with superman i the 21st ctr.
but keep b routh it was the only gud thing abt the film

Until they rid themselves of all traces of those revisions, Superman has little chance of recovering his rightful position in either the comics or in movies.

They need to revise Supes wayyy back, imo-as in 1938 way back. He needs his swagger restored. Farmboy Clark just doesn't cut it.

I just think that WB is overthinking it. Just follow the moderen comics and let the director add his little bit of spice and oh yeah....Finally give us a f**king cool ass super battle with a villain. That early 80's obvious wirework fight with dudes in goofy black suits don't cut it anymore nor do Landschemes. Have a big bad ass adventure with the most powerful hero in comicdom. And stop casting Lois based on looks, I have no problem with Bosworth as an actress or person for that matter but she is quite simply wrong for Lois Lane.

I still don't want a sequel and will be annoyed when the press release comes, but if Singer and Bosworth are Holmes'd I'd be laughing with glee all the same.
couldn't agree more!!!

I thought Byrne gave Superman some real dignity with Man of Steel.

Miller, on the other hand, should be shot for making Supes look like a chump.

Is that what he said, it would be similar to his All Star run? I was just saying I liked the writing on that book, not that it would be a good basis for a movie.

No he didnt state that I just assumed that what people meant when they brought up All Star.

Oh, well not me. I was responding to the notion he was a bad writer.

While I dig Morrison, I think Geoff Johns should write a Superman movie. His run on Action Comics has been stellar so far.

If Johns can't be the writer for MoS, he should be the consult then. Either way would be great.

a script from morrison would have been fantastic. not only is he one of the best writers in comics, but his work on all star superman has been some of the best superman material ever printed in comics. he really understands the character.

i too would like to see geoff johns heavily involved int he script. writing it himself would be ideal.

Those two working together on a Superman script would be ideal.

Grant Morrison interview talking in general about the idea of Superman.

I can see why he might have liked SR.
