August 21, 2009: James McTeigue's Thoughts on Superman Movie

Rumored to be in line to direct the next Superman movie, but unwilling to comfirm or deny these rumors, James McTeigue did talk to MTV's SplashPage and gave his opinion on what his take would be if he was going to direct a Superman film.

    "I think if I was ever going to go near Superman, I would do a complete reboot - take it in a direction that you would absolutely not expect, actually," McTeigue told MTV News. "So, that would be my thinking on it, if I was ever going to go near Superman."

    Elaborating on the direction he'd like to take Superman in a potential movie, McTeigue said recent events would seem to work in favor of a new take on the Man of Steel.

    "I think it's good that they just had a court case where, basically, if you make another Superman movie, you can't touch Superman growing up - that's part of the story that you can't touch any more," he said. "That wouldn't be a bad thing. I think everybody's a bit sick of seeing the origin story."

Remember, James McTeigue has neither confirmed nor denied any involvement with the next Superman movie, this is just his personal opinion on what he thinks should be done.
