Max Landis impressed millions with his superhero movie Chronicle and Max has revealed that there is another superhero that he would like to take on. Max claims that, if he ever had the chance to write something based on Superman, he would make the Man of Steel a normal guy.
Landis told Comic Book Resources, “Honestly, my opinion of Superman has always been that he should be a normal guy. In as much [as], we don't go too cartoon-y, we don't go too far into the idea that he's an alien. We just focus on how f**king weird it would be to be Superman.”
He added, “I would love to write a Superman comic, a series or an arc, which is about how bizarre it is that he's this guy who grew up in Kansas and he finds out that he's an alien. They sort of brush that over constantly, but this is a guy who... grew up watching Alien, E.T. and Independence Day.”
Max continued, “And then he finds out, 'Oh, that's me? I'm from space. I don't feel like I'm from space'. That's what's so special for me. He's not a billionaire. He's not a f**king Amazonian princess... He's just a dude.”
Max Landis is currently working on a redraft of his screenplay for the movie Chronicle 2 after it was claimed that Fox were not completely pleased with the first draft of the script. Chronicle 2 does not yet have an official release date but it is expected to be released sometime in 2014.
