The Ultimate Superman writer?

Banner: Support Extra Life @ Dungeon Masters Guild

With Variety reporting that the writers of 2006’s Superman Returns won’t be returning for the sequel, the job seems to be open and comic book scribe Mark Millar (Civil War, Fantastic Four) is jumping at the opportunity. In a post on his website, Millar says he wants to write the next Superman movie so badly that he’ll do the job for free.

Millar is no a stranger to writing the Man of Steel. He wrote numerous issues of Superman Adventures, the all-ages version of the Superman comic book. He also wrote the critically acclaimed Elseworlds tale, Superman: Red Son (a hypothetical tale of Superman being raised in Soviet Union instead of Kansas).

Personally, I would love to see this come to fruition. I think Millar is one of the top five writers in comic books today (Brian Bendis, Robert Kirkman, Brian K. Vaughn, Bill Willingham and Dwayne McDuffie being the others. Yes, I know that’s six, not five writers, but my love for McDuffie is such that I couldn’t leave him off the list.). His work on titles like The Ultimates, The Authority and Ultimate Fantastic Four, among others, already feels like a cinematic blockbuster. I’d love to see what he could do with the weight of a major motion picture behind him.

Even if he doesn’t land this gig, let’s all hope, unlike Superman Returns, the next movie will at least feature Superman throwing more punches than Lex Luthor.
