    Variety: Valiant Comics Producing 'Harbinger' Film
    'Texas Chainsaw 3D' scribe will pen comicbook adaptation

    Though the film may have stalled at Paramount, Valiant Entertainment Group has decided to go it on its own with "Harbinger" adaptation, bringing back Stephen Susco to pen the script that Brett Ratner will help develop with an eye to direct.

    Susco originally developed and Brett Ratner was originally attached to direct when the project was at Paramount, but underlying rights issues in the wake of the Fox/WB lawsuit over "Watchmen" stalled the project.

    Instead of going the studio route, Valiant sought financing and was given a capital infusion from private investment company Cuneo & Co. and partnered with former Marvel CEO and vice chairman Peter Cuneo to relaunch and independently develop their library of over 1,500 titles.

    Based on the hit Valiant comicbook series and created by Jim Shooter, the comic is a dark and modern twist on the mutant/superhero mythology and followed Pete Stanchek, a teenager- turned-superhero and his battle with a equally powerful industrialist.

    Well, this sounds... less than promising.

    Since the thread's title is Movies and Beyond, figured I'd put this here...

    Neil Gaiman's upcoming novel is now available for pre-order
    . And I do love me some Neil Gaiman.

    Brainiac insists that Superman needs to meet his Doomsday. Doomsday is of course, a tiny alien pet, with his own tiny nametag that says "Doomsday" on it. Lex is skeptical until it bites off the tip of his finger (which Lex also takes surprisingly well). At which point, Brainiac gets his one good line of the movie:

    BRAINIAC:
    Never pet a thing named Doomsday.

    WOWOWOWOW

    I cannot believe they passed on such a well-crafted, witty scrippppfffffdhhahahahahaha--

    --ahahahahahahaa!!

    When they said it was based on Death of Superman, I didn't realize they were trying to write a script that would literally kill the Superman franchise.

    like skull ship kryptonian AI Braniac and fused Brainiac/Luthor

    To be fair, Alan Moore did fused Brainiac/Luthor first.

    And I thought the Rob Liefeld movie idea was insane. It doesn't hold a candle to this.

    But at least there the combination still only has one head. Instead of the script, which has a head each for Lex and Brainiac.

    Man, I could totally have seen Jim Carrey starring as Lex Luthor in this...

    Hmm. Had this Superman movie been made, it would've explained Nicolas Cage's actual career path much more easily.

    it's almost like it was made, but someone erased everyone's memory of having seen it and destroyed the film

    You know how when they make movies they try to put in stuff that resonates with the era and culture and try to be relevant to appeal to the mass audience?

    I have no fucking clue what century this screenwriter was living in. I'm not even sure he's from this planet, let alone this reality.

    So I hope no one was looking forward to Chew on Showtime, because
    There will not be a CHEW TV series on Showtime.

    Hmm. This movie destroys the reputation of Superman, so initially my thoughts went Luthor. But he comes out looking even worse. And he's, you know, smart. And good at things.

    Obviously, this was the work of Mr. Myxlplyx. Or possibly Bat Mite.

    The Brainiac skull ship has also been around for a long time. It was on the Superfriends.

    Also, that script of Superman Lives was written after Superman: TAS premiered so they probably took the idea of Brainiac being a Kryptonian AI from the animated series.

    Liefeld is an amateur at being insane, Burton is a professional.

    JJ Abrams Superman pitch was...wierd. It had Lex being a CIA agent that was secretly another Krytonian.

    90s nostalgia is really going to be the worst in a couple years. You know how we're all idiots as kids and like the suckiest things?

    Even as a kid, I could tell the 90s sucked.

    Hey I liked a lot of the 90s music. Heck to bring it back to comic book media it had the best Superman related songs (Superman's Song, Superman's Dead, Kryptonite... although that was 2000, Superman TAS theme). It also brought the DCAU and the fairly bad in retrospect but definitely better than previous efforts Marvel animated shows.

    Going to be? Have you not been on the Internet lately? We're already swimming in 90s nostalgia bullshit from other people in their late 20s and early/mid 30s who are in a position to do things and influence the web, and they have been jacking it to the 90s hard for a couple years now at least.

    as a 90s kid

    literally murder the 90s

    anyway, i think nic cage superman could've worked with silver age craziness, and less of the time period's BS.
