SupermanIn the wake of the disappointment of Superman Returns, Warner Bros. has had to rethink its Superman franchise. However if Mark Millar has his way, the Superman franchise may very well have nothing to fear, not even Kryptonite.

Mark Millar, the award-winning Scottish graphic novelist most famous for The Ultimates, Wanted, and the current arc of Wolverine, was interviewed by G4 recently, and revealed the possibility that he could be involved with a reboot of the Superman franchise.

In addition to revealing that the movie adaptation of his comic Kick-Ass is going to be done with $70 million, rather than the measly $30 million previously reported, Millar referred to a close and very famous director that has asked him, if WB agrees, to join him on a Superman project.

Millar is definitely not new to the Superman world, being completely obsessed (apparently he owns the stuffed white cat that Superman saved in one of the movies… ?) with the DC powerhouse. Not surprisingly then, Millar revealed that he has a Lord of the Rings-style epic in mind.

“I’ve had this plan for like 10 years of 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. So there is absolutely nothing firm yet, but hopefully over the next couple of weeks, we’ll get something to work,” said Millar. “If it works out, we’ll have to start shooting next summer.”

Check out the video here below from G4 for the full interview, including an interview with artist Tony Harris. But as for a Superman trilogy, given the franchise that Christopher Nolan has created, and WB’s desire to make Superman a tent-pole again, this definitely sounds possible.
