Following Warner Bros. Pictures' decision of having a remake instead of a sequel for their next "Superman" film, another interesting tidbit has come out suggesting that this new superhero movie may be made into a trilogy. In a recent interview with G4 TV, comic book author Mark Millar confessed that he has planned to make three new "Superman" films in the style of "Lord of the Rings".
Noting that he has been approached by a director friend months earlier on the possibility of him writing the new "Superman" installment if "Superman: The Man of Steel" is put on the back burner, Millar responded by sharing his dream. "I've had this plan for like 10 years for a big three-picture Superman thing, like a Lord of the Rings epic, starting over from scratch again with a seven-hour Superman story," he said. "One to be released each year."
Furthermore on the idea of the trilogy, the 38-year-old revealed that if everything goes as planned, the filming of the movies will begin sometime in Summer 2009. The complete interview of Millar about "Superman" as well as his other adapted comic book "Kick-Ass" and new comic "War Heroes" can be enjoyed via G4 TV.
