Director Christopher McQuarrie has revealed that he and Henry Cavill developed an idea for a Superman movie sequel while filming “Mission Impossible – Fallout” together.
McQuarrie took to Twitter to explain that the original idea, which was pitched to Warner Bros., was ultimately passed on.
“The studios have never cared for my original ideas,” he explained. “They prefer that I fix their broken ones.”
The pitch tied in with another idea McQuarrie had for a Green Lantern film, stating it was too complicated to explain on Social Media.
“Too complicated to explain. It tied into the Superman movie that Cavill and I were proposing. No takers.”
While Warner Bros. didn’t directly pass on the ideas, McQuarrie explains they just never took up the ideas and moved forward with them.
“They never said no. They just never moved on it. This was just before Fallout was released. And no, I would not reconsider. There’s too many other things I want to do.”
