Well Warner Bros figures since there are different variations of Superman why not use them all in live action movies.
It started with an exchange between Mark Millar and Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts which saw the latter reveal that Warner Bros. had turned down his pitch for a Superman: Red Son movie but Den of Geek claims to have heard from “very, very, very reliable sources” that the studio is looking to bring the Mark Millar penned comic to the big screen at some point in the near future.
Millar has said on Twitter that Warner Bros. has met with at least two filmmakers to discuss the property and provided a statement to the site in which he says, “I’ve got pals at Warner Bros but never discussed it with them. I think they’re just going through their back catalogue of big books and hoping to lure in good directors as opposed to any particular interest in developing Red Son.”
Now this is far from confirmed as happening just yet, but between the comments made by Vogt-Roberts and Millar and the site’s claims that they’ve heard it’s potentially in the works, the signs are looking good.
Superman: Red Son is a very interesting DC Comics property to adapt and isn’t exactly the Superman tale we expected to see on the big screen next. Man of Steel 2 has seemingly been stuck in development hell for a while and it’s not clear right now whether Henry Cavill would play a Russian (and somewhat villainous) version of the character or if the studio would recast him and new versions of Batman and Wonder Woman. It also feels like an R-Rating would suit this property well.
Do you think that Warner Bros needs to tackle this story with them already having the regular versions of the heroes going forward?
Since Joss Whedon has taken over, reshoots, or as Warner would like you to call them, additional shoots, are taking place. Along with them, we’ve now seen this image, originally posted by the Twitter account of the UK fan site, “DC World.”
Speculation as to whether this is supposed to be early construction on a Hall Of Justice set piece, or a Watchtower set piece is running rampant, but either way, our DC heroes look like they’re getting a proper home base.
Before we get too carried away, Tim Burton is filming Dumbo in the same area, but c’mon, it has to be the Hall, right? Right? Catch the next podcast and we’ll give you our opinions on it!

We talked about how right Jay was about the return of Deathstroke and how it was going to happen, and the season 5 sizzle reel for Arrow proves it. There’s a ton of new action in the featurette, including more Black Siren, a showdown between the al-Ghul sisters and Manu Bennett, back as Slade Wilson! We’ll keep bringing you more from C2E2 all weekend!
Oh yeah, and it’s set 2 generations before Kal-El is born. Today we got the trailer for Krypton and we have to ask the question: why? The series is set to cover the life and times of Superman’s grandfather, a character people were just dying to know about (sarcasm, intended.)
Of course, the powers that Superman has on Earth are largely due to the effect of the sun’s rays and Earths’ gravity, which means the Kryptonians on Krypton are essentially no more powered than the average earthling. Are we sensing another Caprica-type bomb for SyFy? David Goyer is behind this, so we’d hope not, but we’ll have to wait and see, when it premieres later this year.
Well we’ve been promised it and today we got the 2nd full traicler for the upcoming Warner Bros. And Zach Snyder “Justice League” movie.
The film which stars Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman and Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman seek out to bring together other powerful meta humans in Cyborg,The Flash and Aquaman after the death of Superman to combat a new outerworldly threat.
The trailer gives us our first glimpses of Cyborg in Action and full flight, Amber Heard as Queen Mera, JK Simmons as Commissioner Gordon and others. Take a look and let us know what you think.
