Superman by Andrew Milito (based on characters from DC Comics)

Part one of Volume I my DC Cinematic Universe “rebirth” series.

The film would be a traditional origin story of the Kryptonian Kal-El, who, as a newborn infant, is sent to Earth by his parents Jor-El and Lara Lor-Van as their home planet faces impending destruction. On Earth, he is adopted by a rural Kansas couple, Jonathan and Martha Kent, and assumes the identity of Clark Kent. As he settles into his new home on Earth, he balances a life of newspaper journalism at the Daily Planet alongside reporter Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, and editor Perry White, and a life of discovering his Kryptonian powers and putting them to use for benevolence… and the occasional hijinks.

What would make my version of Superman differ from other cinematic iterations of the character is that the film would not feature a traditional antagonist or huge action setpieces. While Lex Luthor would be established in this universe, he would not directly battle with Superman in the film: instead, the story would be a mostly small, introspective look at Superman and his ethos, as well as his relationships with Lois, Jimmy, Perry, Jonathan and Martha, etc.

Main inspirations: Max Landis' “Superman: American Alien” run, with elements of “Superman: Birthright”.

Rated PG-13 for sequences of action, and some language.
