Dougherty Talks Superman Sequel

Presently shooting his directorial debut “Trick ‘r Treat”, scribe Michael Dougherty (“Superman Returns”, “X2”) tells Sci-Fi Wire that the upcoming “Superman” sequel will feature at least one villain drawn from the DC Comics franchise.

“We’re talking… We’re bouncing ideas around with Bryan. Big ideas. Action-packed ideas” says Dougherty who confirmed its likely he and ‘Returns’ co-writer Dan Harris will once again collaborate on the script.

Acknowledging the disappointment fans felt with the first film’s lack of action and slow pace, he adds that “I know that Bryan has said he’s going to Wrath of Khan it, and by that he means, ‘Let’s take what we’ve already established–we’ve gotten that out of the way–and let’s just make it shorter, tighter and more action-packed”.
