Bleeding Cool’s Will Romine has just seen the DC animated movie version of Mike Mignola and Brian Augustyn‘s Batman story Gotham By Gaslight, premiering at the DC In DC event tonight. He says it’s awesome and we look forward to a more verbose review later.But he also reports that Warner Bros’ Bruce Timm says he wants to do Red Son as an animated film next, another Elseworlds-stye story, this time focusing on Superman – a Superman whose fleeing spaceship from Krypton landed several hours later than on the DC Earth – and so hit a collective farm in Soviet Russia rather than Kansas.And gives us a communist Superman, in the full knowledge that Stalin means Man Of Steel….Written by Wanted/Kick-Ass/Kingsman‘s Mark Millar and drawn by Dave Johnson and Killian Plunkett over many years, it was finally published in 2003.In 2013, James Tucker expressed interest in making an animated movie adaptation of Red Son for DC Universe Animated Original Movies.  In 2017, Jordan Vogt-Roberts pitched a Red Son adaptation to Warner Brothers, as an “offshoot” of the DC Extended Universe with different actors for Superman and Batman, but “was told no.” Mark Millar responded by saying that two friends of his had been approached by WB to direct a live-action Red Son.Well, now it seems the ball is in Bruce Timm’s court.

jackiechan has slowed down quite a bit in recent years, but when he was in his prime, he is known to submit his own headlines and not do things he's not capable of. Now in his twilight years, he's deferring to up-and-coming submitters.
