Re: J.J. Abrams Says Returning To Superman 'Would Be A Blast'

I think Martin Campbell might be a great Superman director. He's already successfully revived the James Bond franchise twice, with Goldeneye & Casino Royale. He also gave us another surprisingly successful revival with The Mask of Zorro.

And has anyone asked Richard Donner or Tom Mankiewicz if they're interested in coming back to the property?

Re: J.J. Abrams Says Returning To Superman 'Would Be A Blast'

I thought the chronology went like this on the Superman project. Tim Burton. McG/JJ Abrams/Brett Ratner/then Wolfgang Peterson/Walker on Superman Vs Batman then Bryan Singer.

Re: J.J. Abrams Says Returning To Superman 'Would Be A Blast'

^No. It was more like--
Kevin Smith
Tim Burton
McG
Wolfgang Petersen/Andrew Kevin Walker on Batman vs. Superman
McG/J.J. Abrams
Brett Ratner
McG
Bryan Singer

The rumors of McG or Ratner casting Matthew Bomer, Brendan Fraser, Henry Cavill, Ashton Kutcher, David Boreanaz, etc. continued long after Petersen began production on Troy.

Campbell is doing Green Lantern for WB. If it's a hit, they could well ask him to relaunch Superman for them; he doesn't really like sequels and might prefer to do that than GL2. Incidentally, the GL script is supposed to feature a Clark Kent cameo, so Campbell might be perfectly placed to put the Man of Steel back on the big screen.

IIRC, Richard Donner is effectively retired from directing. But I think that WB could do a lot worse than to invite him and Mankiewicz back as consultants for any future movie.

Don't forget all the aborted attempts by the Salkinds and Chris Reeve to get Superman V: The New Movie made.

Re: J.J. Abrams Says Returning To Superman 'Would Be A Blast'

Yeah ok that order makes more sense than mine. Mine was a guesstimate. I think I have pointed out that I wouldn't mind seeing a JJ Abrams/Bryan Singer combination on a Superman reboot (again...doesn't have to have an origin sequence for those multitudes who hate them but if it's a complete reboot...guess what...he might have a slightly different origin! No one thinks about that when they complain bout his origin.We've only seen his origin once in the movies, twice if you count Superman II. So I don't get all of this oversaturation on it. Plus I doubt they could do it fully now. with that rights issue on the origin).

I think that JJ with no one telling him what to do and a free collaboration with Singer would turn in a very interesting screenplay. As I've said when it's brought up I liked parts of his 2002 Superman first draft...the obvious stuff that people hate can be removed but I think he got the jist of the characters and how to handle Superman.
