Concept Art: Brett Ratner's Failed Superman Film

Posted: February 27th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Concept Art: Brett RatnerSubmit Comment
Apparently the Brett Ratner-directed, JJ Abrams-scripted Superman film got all the way to the concept art phase before falling apart. And now, artist Phil Saunders posted one of these concept art pieces, which you can check out below. Here is what Saunders wrote on his blog:

"Here's a random image from the ill-fated Brett Ratner-directed, JJ Abrams-written version of Superman. I was on the show for about 4 months, of which I think about 3 months was without a director. I overlapped BR for about two weeks before he left, and I think about 2 weeks before I left to get married McG took over the show. This is about as un-dynamic a composition as you can come up with, but Production Designer Owen Patterson wanted a straight one-point perspective view of Superman facing off against the Rouser (a Japa... er, Kryptonian Battle Pod, don't ask) so you could compare scale. I had fun designing the Rouser, though."

And here is what Ratner had to say about the film: "The original movie I was going to be a part of, took place on Krypton for about half of the movie. So it was much more otherworldly, and much darker, because there was a civil war on Krypton. You'd get more of the history."

It was said that based on the script, the film would need $400 million to bring to the big screen.

400 million, how much did ratner want to get paid! But it really could not have been worst that what Singer made. Maybe just as bad, but not worst.

Anybody who would ever be willing to give Brett Ratner that much money needs to be taken out for a nice afternoon of electro-shock therapy. Whoever said "No" to this movie, I applaud and thank you.

$400Mil for another Superman film? I'm glad someone put a halt to this. Nothing exciting about anything seen here.
