Millar Speaks about Wanted Sequels, but more importantly SUPERMAN!

Here's the juicy bits

“A director approached me about three months ago,” Millar said. “and he said ‘look, [Bryan Singer's] The Man Of Steel might not be happening. If that doesn’t happen, it has been spoken about the possibility of me coming in, would you like to write it?’ And I was like Yeah.”

“I’ve had this plan for like 10 years for a big three-picture Superman thing, like a big Lord of the Rings epic, starting over from scratch again with a seven-hour Superman story. And hopefully release them one year after another,” continued Millar. “If it works out, we’ll have to start shooting next summer.”

He also talks about Matthew Vaughn, who will direct Millar's Kick Ass, as already raised about 70 million dollars (previously a 30 million dollar budget for the film was reported).

I must say, Millar is an EXCELLENT writer and if anyone should get Superman, I think he deserves a shot (although I'm still rather sour that Singer/Routh won't be given another shot).

I also think that a 3 film epic is what Superman needs. Let's cross our fingers for pure awesomeness. Check out the interview below.
