In an interview with Screen Rant, “Avengers: Endgame” screenwriters Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus were asked if they had a chance to write a script for a DC Comics character which one they’d choose… They quickly responded with “Superman”, saying they believe giving him the Captain America treatment would be the way to go.
Feely explained, “I certainly think that Captain America shows that there are certainly ways to do a really good Superman movie in this day. You don’t have to dirty him up. You don’t have get rid of his ernestness.”
“The Christopher Reeve Superman is one of my favorite movies, and so that’s one we certainly borrow from all the time.”
