5 Classic Superman Stories That Could Fuel Man Of Steel 2
2. Kingdom Come
Adapting Mark Waid and Alex Ross’ Kingdom Come solves multiple problems. By introducing alternate Elseworlds, a spin on the Kingdom Come story could bring in classic Justice League of America heroes who are struggling with the way their powers affect our society. But as war escalates – thanks to the machinations of Lex Luthor – it’s Batman and a team of allies who steps in … meaning Man of Steel 2 could make room for the next iteration of The Dark Knight, leading to more D.C. cinematic adventures.
3. Superman: Red Son
A re-imagining of the Superman myth that has baby Kal-El crashing down in Moscow instead of Kansas, thereby fighting for Communism instead of the American way. While it would be impossible to reimagine Snyder’s Man of Steel already, a new Krypton being landing in Mother Russia could trigger modern versions of classic villains (Bizarro, Brainiac) and JLA heroes such as Green Lantern and Wonder Woman.
