There is, however, a big hole in everything, because you can’t help but wish Heath Ledger was there to discuss his approach […]

Two posts at /film and Obssessed with Film have me spinning my wheels this morning, wondering just who in the heck has approached comic scribe Mark Millar to revamp Superman for the screen in three years. The whole story started with a Daily Record interview that quoted Millar as saying he “always wanted to reinvent […]
