Superman needs some ideas for what his next adventure might be.
“Superman Returns” scribes Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris have opted not to come back and pen a sequel to the 2006 summer pic that would have reunited them with helmer Bryan Singer. The three also worked together on “X2: X-Men United.”
As a result, WB is now taking pitches for Supe’s next outing from other scribes — just as the studio is trying to figure out which actor will don the character’s tights in “Justice League.” . . .
Say what? Daniel Craig, who (if the films stay true to the books) will lead a rebellion against God in the His Dark Materials trilogy, is also going to play the original rebel against God? Seems so — though this news has apparently been kicking around for at least a year and a half, which leads me to wonder both why I have never mentioned it here before, and how close this project is to getting out of “development hell“. (Um, no pun intended. Honestly.)
