Horn on "Superman 2" and "Batman vs Superman"

Horn on "Superman 2" and "Batman vs Superman"

It’s actually been a relatively quiet work on the "Superman/Batman" rumour front. But Aint it Cool interrupted the free breeze with WB head honcho Alan Horn’s take on the second "Superman" movie. "The second Superman movie will have Clark returning to the remnants of Krypton (yes, there are remnants). J.J. Abrams’ script for Superman: Horn was put off by the idea initially but after reading the script, liked it a lot – especially the nuances of the Clark Kent character. Also, feels it’s important to get an ACTOR, a great ACTOR, to be Clark. The Clark/Superman difference "can’t just be about taking the glasses off anymore." They are really being selective in trying to find someone who can pull it off because if they can’t find someone worthy of following Christopher Reeves "we’re screwed." (Horn was a big fan of Josh Hartnett in the role)"

On the terminally-troubled "Batman vs Superman:, Horn said :

"We will do it." He says it’s "dark and mean-spirited" but really, really good. The plan is to have Superman and Batman origin stories released within the same year (starting in 2005). Each movie (I think he said there would be three of each?) will deal with the Superheroes’ origins and began to establish their relationship to each other which will set up "Superman vs. Batman" to follow the backstories.

Superman and Batman find themselves at odds in "Superman v. Batman" when Bruce goes out seeking bloody vengeance on the murderer of his new bride, Jennifer. Superman opposes him, fights him to the near death – then it’s discovered that the guy behind Jennifer’s murder is also this big baddie in Superman’s circle and they unite to fight or something sweet like that.

On the Batman origin story :

First Batman origin story has Bruce witnessing the murder of parents, enraged and guilty he turns to crime before he becomes a crime-fighter. Builds the Batcave and mobile, hires Alfred, studies martial arts, etc.
