by Andrew Kevin Walker and Akiva Goldsman
After several failed attempts to get a new Superman off the ground, this crossover was proposed by Andrew Kevin Walker. It was designed to relaunch both the Superman and Batman franchises. I think it’s a great idea. Sure, they’re both good guys, but as anyone who reads the comics knows, the two heroes have conflicting personalities and ideologies.
This screenplay was scrapped when other (separate) Superman and Batman projects came into favor and attached director Wolfgang Peterson left to do Troy.
Years later, an entirely different film was made, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
