Christopher McQuarrie Says WB Turned Down His 'Superman' Movie With Henry Cavill (Report)

Christopher McQuarrie is opening up about his Superman and Green Lantern films that he says Warner Bros. rejected.

The 51-year-old screenwriter recently took to Twitter to explain the situation to fans.

“Too complicated to explain,” Christopher wrote (via CBR). “It tied into the Superman movie that [Henry] Cavill and I were proposing. No takers. The studios have never cared for my original ideas. They prefer that I fix their broken ones.”

Besides the Superman pitch, Christoper said he also penned a Green Lantern proposal.

Christopher McQuarrie added that the discussions took place ahead of the premiere of Mission: Impossible – Fallout, and that they were for a sequel to Man of Steel, though Warner Bros. chose not to go forward with his idea.
