While Man of Steel proved to be a divisive film amongst fans, many of us are still waiting for a sequel or a new movie that stars Superman. He is the very first superhero after all and the DC icon deserves a film that captures his essence. Though Man of Steel does have its defenders, there are those that want a more classic take on the character, including those that have worked for Marvel.

Speaking with Screen Rant, Avengers: Endgame writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely revealed that they would like to work on a Christopher Reeves-style Superman film. Both writers feel that they're Captain America films were able to update the character without forcing him to be edgy or cool so the duo hopes they get that chance with Superman in the near future.

"I mean, I think Captain America shows there are certainly ways to do a really good Superman movie in this day. You don't have to dirty him up, you don't have to get rid of his earnestness. I'm a big — the Christopher Reeve Superman is one of my favorite movies. So that's one we certainly borrow from all the time."

There don't appear to be any big plans for Superman right now, at least when it comes to the films. Fans have a ton of comics with the big blue boy scout to enjoy but it's a shame that the folks in Warner Bros don't have that kind of love for Superman. Hopefully, we get a film with him in the future that pleases fans and movie viewers alike.
