Bizarro Superman: The Movie?

Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Monday, April 6, 2009

With nothing seemingly happening on the Superman movie front and no idea when a sequel -- or even a new film reboot -- of the world's best-known superhero will happen, that's all the more reason to cock an eyebrow in surprise for news that there is a script for a Bizarro Superman movie floating around out there.

Latino Review not just broke the news about the proposed movie but also performed a video script review of it. Written by Robert Gordon (Galaxy Quest, Men in Black II), what makes the whole thing even more stranger is that Gordon's screenplay was written on spec, that is, not ordered by Warner Bros. (the rights holder to Superman.) When a writer creates a spec script there's no guarantee that the screenplay will be sold to anyone, but for a project like this, it's not like Universal or Paramount can buy Gordon's script since WB owns the copyright for the Man of Steel.

As described by the Latino boys, Gordon's idea for how a Bizarro Superman is created diverges from the comic book's Bizarro's origin. The storyline uses the original Superman and Lois Lane so this idea could conceivably be shaped to be a sequel to Superman Returns as well as to an earlier movie in the film franchise. Spoiler alert!

Now that the existance of Bizarro Superman is known hopefully we can learn from Robert Gordon how he came to write his screenplay and whether it has a chance to become the next movie featuring Superman in it. Watch Latino Review's first look at the screenplay and find out the rest of the details.

I've got to imagine that Warner Brothers isn't excited about the prospects of having plot details for the movie spread about the internet even before they've bought the screenplay. I'd suspect this to be a "pass." Perhaps Gordon's real motivation for writing this screenplay was as an audition for the assignment.

Okay, I'm late in the game here.  But I'm compelled to say that this is one of the worst screenplays I've read in a while.  I was certain it was written by an eager fan who'd yet to learn the basics of storytelling.  I was certain that it was a fake script. Yet the video review supports the plot and details.

The video review makes it sound compelling, but I swear to you, the execution is crap, amateurish, and confused.  I'm very surprised this has moved forward at all.  I'm more surprised it received a video review, though I understand it's a project worthy of a mention.  But the word "horrible" should've also been mentioned.
