Yeah another Superman movie blog.
Director of the original 1978 Superman movie gave his recommendation for the film franchise to be written by comic book writer Geoff Johns.
What would Donner like to see next for the Last Son of Krypton? He didn't hesitate. "I'd like to see Geoff Johns take a crack at Superman...I think he would be startling. Did you read his comics? There it is. It's there on paper." Johns is a star writer in comics, of course, but before that, the Detroit native worked in Donner's office as an assistant to the filmmaker. Once again, Donner thinks the smart way to do business is to put a premium on loyalty and good ideas. "The studio hasn't gone to him and said, 'Give us a screenplay.' That would be the smart thing to do, but that's show biz. Right? Show biz, that's our life."
Ain't that the truth. Its seems like such an obvious idea to get Geoff Johns involved in getting the Superman franchise on track and for that matter he should really be a consultant or something for the upcoming Green Lantern movie. Johns is the current writer of Action Comics, Green Lantern, and Justice Society at DC comics. He shares a writing credit with Donner for his first two story arcs on Action
and Escape from Bizarro World
C'mon DC. Get ya head in tha game!
