1/ I don't think I said they couldn't afford me now. If I did I was joking because writing Superman would be a massive payday so if I said that I was obviously laughing at the time. It's possible though as I like being glib.
2/ Nobody has ever seen my Superman idea besides [director] Matthew [Vaughn]. We never pitched. I've never done a pitch in my life (it's demeaning) so all this stuff about people hating my Superman ideas, etc, is just bull****. Nobody's seen it. I don't write or give ideas away for free and simply wouldn't. I mentioned a big epic idea to Empire in a Wanted interview which was a couple of lines long, but no story stuff at all. So the stuff about me pitching is nonsense. I don't and will never pitch. That's why I like working in comics.
As were Millar's consecutive posts (also no longer available on his website) with statements such as: "In the interests of clarity (because I'm sure this will be picked up somewhere) a very well known American action director heard about my love of Superman, approached me and asked me to team up with he and his producer to make a pitch for this", and: "Again, I can only stress that isn't news, lads. It isn't an offer from WB or anyone. It's just a big name action director who got in touch and asked me to join he and a producer we both know well to pitch for it."
Sorry Mark, but everyone got the idea you pitched a Superman idea to the WB because you repeatedly used the word "pitch" in your own messages on your own website.
