    I'd prefer no reboot at all, but if there has to be one, I hope it's not Millar. I don't need another Superman origins story. Just a Cyborg Superman, a Darkseid or a Doomsday. Anything but Krypton blowing up and Clark Kent running through wheat fields… the latter can be had every week on television!

    I don't think his ending, although dramatic, makes any sense.Not exactly any place things can go from there.Why 'paint yourself into a corner'?

    Please keep Mark Millar the hell away from the Superman movie franchise. Geoff Johns? Go right on in.

    I just feel like the Superman Returns took the character plans we've already been and other places we didn't need to go.The Man of Steel is a much more positive character than that.A story that ends on a down note does not seem appropriate.

    I think as a viable option, Johns is the safer route. WB/DC as movie makers should think long term, and that includes a Justice League maybe sometime after Avengers… Millar's take sounds fantastic, but showing the end of civilization might be a "little" over the edge for commercial franchises. I could be wrong, I do think Johns has the ability to distill characters (even with a huge history) while engraining them in really fun stories. Millar is a pro at "wide screen" comics, but as a proposed trilogy it sounds less like a franchise to me. Just my take.

    • Rick Taylor says:

      Agreed.These films need to 'hang together' as a franchise.Uh…like the silver age comics did.

    The problem I have with Superman (the character) is that in the 70+ years since he's shown up, we've lost perspective on what it means to have someone with his powers on a world full of humans. I think any Superman reboot should tie-in to the current Batman franchise.
