In an interview with The Fanboy Podcast, writer Mark Waid spoke about his love for Superman, what the character means to him, and whether he’d be interested in writing a script for a new Superman movie.
“Sure. I mean, that would never happen. So it’s really easy for me to say ‘Yes.’ But sure. That’d be interesting.”
“I’d take a swing at something like that. I don’t know what my story would be. Actually, that’s not true. I know exactly what my story would be. But I can’t give it away. It’s the one Superman story I’ve got in my back pocket that – if we all live long enough – maybe someone will ask me to tell it someday.”
Mark Waid, whose first comic book story “The Puzzle of the Purloined Fortress” (an eight-page Superman story) published back in 1985 in “Action Comics #572”, has written many great and memorable Superman comic book stories over the years, including “Kingdom Come” and “Superman: Birthright”.
