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.

The current incarbnation of Luthor, created in the mini-series Man Of Steel, was created by Marv Wolfman, not John Byrne. John came in on the project after two other artist/creators passed on it, and most ideas and concepts were already in place.

Singer used to much CGI on Routh, so we don't know real, from fake. The movie was crap, and Lex Luthor needs to be like Man of Steel by Byrne or The WB cartoon. Routh's Kent was nothing special. Start from scratch!

Despite it flaws, I'd very much like to see WB give Singer and Routh a chance at a sequel. Overall, I found Superman Returns to be a rich, exciting, and utterly magnificent telling of heroism and love, and I believe it brought a profound and inspiring depth to The Man of Steel. As for Routh’s performance as Superman, I thought it was just breathtaking - one of the most powerful and deeply moving male characterizations I’ve ever seen on film. Singer has expressed a desire to take the sequel in an action-packed, “Wrath of Khan” direction. Now THAT sounds like an excellent alternative to a reboot, and I believe Bryan Singer has the talent and passion to maintain a compelling storyline while bringing eye-popping, heart-stopping excitement to the Man of Steel.
