What about Geoff Johns writing this sucker?

  1. Hell yeah! He's the best guy for the job!

  2. Okay, but he should work with other writer(s).

  3. Hell no! He should stay the **** away from this movie!

    Johns would infuse the movie with puns. Good puns, but puns nontheless.

    No thank you.

    Excerpt from a new interview with Geoff Johns where he talks about the villain he like to see and the direction he'd like the sequel to take!

    in my opinion, geoff johns would be ideal for the project. he has a background in film, has a great knowledge of superman, and has written what have been some of the best superman books in recent memory. he is definitely inspired in some ways by the donner verse, but doesnt push it nearly as much as singer did.

    Yep. Reading the interview, my mind was saying "I bet Johns will say Brainiac" & he did indeed. WB should be smart enough to have Singer use Brainiac with how almost everyone is asking to see him onscreen. And they should hire Johns if they haven't got any writers yet. Even Donnor would support that & maybe talk to Singer about him. :D:up:

    Sure. But they'd have to offer him first, because I don't see him rushing to write it. Or is he? Has he said anything?

    Anyone who can bend the Donner motif toward the comic-book path it needs to go in deserves a shot. So yeah, I say give Johns a crack at it.

    Yes, he's majority's top choice.
    Don't know if he has. I'd be all for him coming on board as a consultant or as a second writer like they're doing on Green Lantern.

    When Singer appeared at Comic Con post SR he was anticipating reading Johns and Donner's take on the character.

    People need to cut the s*** with the Donnerverse. Yes, he made a fine Superman film, which spun-off a half-decent sequel, two crappy "movies" and a boring as hell rehash by Bryan Singer. Enough is enough. Do you think that Christopher Nolan had Burton's or Shumacher's vision of Batman in mind when making Batman Begins or The Dark Knight? No. He was doing a reboot, and it did wonders. He was making his own movie with his own vision, while paying respect to the comics. I think that Singer should have done the same, and hope that whoever does the sequel will keep that in mind.

    Wow....everything Johns says about how Braniac should be portrayed onscreen is spot on IMO. I especially like his comments in the end of this interview on how he thinks the next Superman film should progress. Good stuff! Sorry if this old....but check it out for those who haven't read it.....

    Even if he wasn't a writer but a consultant would be great, he has the ability to take villains and make them relevant, take a look at what he did with zod, ursa and non, and you will want to see them in a film as well.

    I've met Johns. Great guy.

    He gets the Donner/Singer precrisis stuff and the modern comic stuff.

    His take on Brainiac would be amazing.

    Considering how Johns' interpretation of Superman is pretty much a perfect blend of the Donner movies and the comic book version of Superman, I think he'd be perfect to be involved in some capacity.

    As Shaft would say, "Damn right!". ;)

    Johns know how to make lame villians cool when he did the Flash, but he couldn't help make Rainbow Raider cool. :funny: :funny:

    I actually got a chance to meet Geoff Johns a few weeks ago at a local comic shop, and I gotta say, he's a really, really nice guy who seems to love to talk to the fans. I did bring up how much I'd love for him to be involved in either the Green Lantern or Superman franchises and he pretty much responded with "Dude, I'd kill to work on them". He also told a funny story of trying to pitch a GL movie with Richard Donner to Warners several years ago, and the suits at Warners said " Does he need to have a ring? No one will buy a magic ring." A year later, Lord of the Rings comes out. Go Figure.

    Considering that the Donner movies are now influencing the Superman comics big time and they've had a huge impact on the Superman mythos I'd say that people shouldn't cut the s*** with the Donnerverse. Even 30 years later it is still a very relevant piece of Superman unlike the Burton/Schumaker Batman films which aren't even 20 years old.

    Although with the reception the Dark Knight is getting, I can see DC Nolanizing the Batman comics in the near future just like they're Donnerizing the Superman comics.

    I think that is a huge testament to Donner's film. I always get a little frustrated when people bash Singer with comments like "Singer only knows the Donner universe. Or STM is all the research he did."

    STM and what Donner did was another spin on the mythos and clearly made people fans of Superman. As you said hippie, it has made an impact on comic writers as well.

    Johns convinced me with his "Brainiac" arc. The first two issues are brilliant.
