Empire Online talked to Mark Millar (Wanted, upcoming Kick-Ass) more about his proposed “Superman” epic. Here are several clips from the article:
Mark has been working closely with a ‘big-Hollywood action director’ â€“ who he refuses to name at this stage â€“ on a pitch for what he is calling the Magnum Opus of Superman stories. His idea is for an 8-hour saga, split into 3 films to be released a year apart, in a Lord of the Rings fashion.
“I want to start on Krypton, a thousand years ago, and end with Superman alone on Planet Earth, the last being left on the planet, as the yellow sun turns red and starts to supernova, and he loses his powers.”
