Superman to be reinvented by 'Wanted' writer Mark Millar!?

by Joey Paur

I was disapointed in the last Superman movie that was done by Bryan Singer to be it was just boring and there was really nothing interesting about it, nothing that would make it stand out. If I feel the urge to watch Superman it will be the ones staring Christopher Reeve.

Now Mark Millar the man behind the totally awesome movie 'Wanted' has a big S up his sleeve. He recently gave an interview with dailyrecord where he talks about it a liitle bit and it's pretty encouraging. Doing a Superman Movie is Marks dream:
But Mark's big dream is making a Superman movie.

He said: "Since I was a kid I've always wanted to reinvent Superman for the 21st century.

"I've been planning this my entire life. I've got my director and producer set up, and it'll be 2011. This is how far ahead you have to think.

"The Superman brand is toxic after that last movie lost Û200million, but in 2011 we're hoping to restart it.

"Sadly I can't say who the director is, but we may make it official by Christmas.

"But fingers crossed it could work out, that would be my lifetime's dream."

After the success of 'Wanted' it looks like everything came together for Millar on this thing. I guess Singer is out. I would really love to see what he plans on doing with this new Superman movie. I hope this all works out for him his first pitch was turned down last year because of his involvement with Marvel. This isn't Millars First encounter with the Superman property either he also wrote Superman: Red Son comic series. I am sure we all really want to see an amazing Superman film! One that will stick.

Heres to living the dream!
