February 23, 2011: Grant Morrison's Comments About New Superman Movie

Grant Morrison "All Star Superman" comic book writer Grant Morrison gave the LA Times his thoughts on the up-coming new Superman movie starring Henry Cavill and being directed by Zack Snyder.

    "I can't wait to see what they do. There are so many ways to tell Superman stories that might resonate with a modern audience, and I'm looking forward to see how Zack Snyder approaches it. Things I'd personally like to see are a non-camp Luthor, some other villains like Metallo or Brainiac and a more vigorous, go-getting Superman. The noble attempts to portray him as a Christ-like, American redeemer figure in 'Superman Returns' had the unfortunate effect of making him a limp and wimpy punch bag. Superman is a highly principled hero, but he's no pacifist; he's a brawler who doesn't give in until he's dead or the bad guy's down, and I'd like to see a bit more of that grit."
