With recent news on movement on the up-coming Superman movie, I felt it time I had my say on the supposed direction this film is taking.
Say what you will about Producer Jon Peters... I personally don't know too much about him to comment. So I won't... Rumoured Director for this film Oliver Stone, has a fairly good reputation... but whoever is responsible for the following piece of news should have their head examined...
What am I talking about? Well, along with Hollywood Reporter's news about Oliver Stone's interest in Directing the Superman film, they also reported that the movie would have a more "Matrix" type look to it, and that Superman would appear minus the tights... let me repeat that again... MINUS THE TIGHTS!
Hopefully this is a false rumour.
If not... then God help us!!!
When are "the powers that be" going to learn? Surely the people involved in making this film must do some research... Will somebody at DC Comics please talk to these guys and tell them the lessons learnt from Superman Blue.
The only good part of this rumour is the Matrix connection... the technology used in the Matrix to create those jumping/flying scenes would make for an awesome Superman movie... but that's as far as the connection should go. No leather, no trench coats, no apocoliptic dark ambience.
Sure we fanatical Superman fans may have a more emotional stake in the making of this film then the average movie goer... however the average movie goer knows who Superman is. They've watched him either through the George Reeves TV series, the various cartoons (be it the SuperFriends, Superboy, recent Animated Series, etc...) and many from the Christopher Reeve films. Everyone knows what Superman is supposed to look like. You might get away with changing costume designs for the X-Men to a certain degree, but NOT with Superman.
Whether the script is written or not, I'm sure it will go through editing and re-editing before filming begins. Bill Wisher and team should seriously look at a couple of comic books for inspiration and direction on what makes a great Superman story. Specifically, I'd direct them to grab a copy of "Superman: Peace on Earth", "Kingdom Come", "Superman For All Seasons" and some of Mark Millar's work on Superman Adventures, like issue 36 (where Superman, busy as he was saving planes, rescuing people, etc... still found time to locate a little boy's lost dog). These stories are what Superman is all about.
"From the outset, we were determined to stay true to the spirit of Superman. We wanted this movie to have more color, style, action, and spectacular visuals than any film of its kind ever made before. But there would be no tampering with the legend."
Executive Producer of "Superman: The Movie".
