Singer's new superhero

Filmmaker Bryan Singer has already brought us his vision of the X-MEN and SUPERMAN, but now it's time for a new crew of superheroes. Sadly, they're not anyone you've heard of before.

Singer won't be getting into the director's chair, but he's planning to produce a new Warner Bros. movie called CAPESHOOTERS. The story, to be penned by hot scribes J.P. Lavin and Chad Damiani, "follows two down-on-their-luck slackers who specialize in shooting videos of superheroes. They find themselves on the run when they uncover evidence that a legendary superhero actually is evil. The story is based on an upcoming graphic novel by Rob Liefeld." (Note: artwork here is from some other terrible Rob Liefeld book involving, it would seem, a raygun-toting midget.)

Just to clarify: Warner Bros., who has the entire stable of DC Comics characters at their disposal, instead appears to be prioritizing a movie based on a yet-to-be (if ever) published book by one of the most reviled comic creators in the past two decades, an "artist" who loves pouches and shoulder pads but hates feet (and who clearly has a good agent).

Enjoy the karmic tradeoff for THE DARK KNIGHT.
