Mark Millar sees Superman as a Lord of the Rings style Trilogy

Slash Film have this to say on the matter

In an interview with G4, comic book writer Mark Millar (Wanted) revealed his plans for a new trilogy of Superman films, which he would like to be shot back-to-back.

“A director approached me about three months ago,” Millar said. “and he said ‘look, [Bryan Singer's] The Man Of Steel might not be happening. If that doesn’t happen, it has been spoken about the possibility of me coming in, would you like to write it?’ And I was like Yeah.”

Yeah, we have already heard this before, but here is where the juicy details come in:

“I’ve had this plan for like 10 years for a big three-picture Superman thing, like a big Lord of the Rings epic, starting over from scratch again with a seven-hour Superman story. And hopefully release them one year after another,” continued Millar. “If it works out, we’ll have to start shooting next summer.”

Wow, big plans, but even Millar admits that nothing is firm yet, and while this is a “long shot”, the director in question is “a big deal” and he apparently said that he won’t do it unless Millar writes it.

So what do you all make of that then? Do you like the sound of Millar's vision for Kal-El? Who could the big name director be? It does sound very promising, but at the moment is all just one man's wish. We shall have to wait a bit longer to see if the money men go for it.

Oh dear the old batman vs Superman!
Superman could just flick batman in the chest crushing every bone in his body! Or just do a laser eye beam stylee on him from a mile away burning straight through his skull. Or just exhale on him and destroy him.. basically super hero vs a man in a black suit! Batman could try and use his bat belt on Supes i suppose but i think he'd just laugh and fly straight through his torso! Its like comparing a 3 year old in a fight against mike tyson!.. id also like to mention that im a huge fan of bats but i think the whole concept of the fight being even just laughable! Superman would win on every level!
