“Mad Max: Fury Road” director George Miller discussed how he would frame a Superman film, what effects he planned to use in his ill-fated “Justice League” film and his stance on the “Man of Steel” sequel during an interview with IGN.
“I think it’s been said many times before: [Superman] is potentially a very boring character because he has no faults,” he explained. “So you really have to find his demons really to get an internal conflict going. You’ve really got to do that. Whether that’s by an external agency or something deep inside himself. You need that conflicted character.”
As to how he was going to approach his “Justice League” film, he shared, “In terms of what we would’ve done, clearly we weren’t going to fly Superman and Wonder Woman on wires. They were going to be CG, but again you’re working your butt off to make it not look like CG. Ken Ralston — who’s a great, great visual effects artist — was going to be doing a lot of that. The WETA stuff at that point was mainly in the practical costumes and the effects.”
He also reconfirmed that he will not be attached to “Man of Steel 2,” saying, “I’ll basically say no. Sorry again, not trying to be coy about it. You have so many things lined up. You just don’t know which one’s going to break […] the next film I want to do won’t be a Mad Max film. It’ll be a small film. I just want to get away from big action films for a while.”
Earlier this summer, “Death of Superman Lives” director Jon Schnepp said he knew Miller would direct the “Man of Steel” sequel during a video interview. Though Warner Bros. declined to comment on the rumor at the time, Miller reconfirms this will not be the case here.
“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” the next installment of the extended DC Cinematic Universe, is scheduled for release on March 25, 2016.
