Comic writer Mark Millar (Wanted), who had pitched an eight-hour epic trilogy of Superman films, is now saying that the proposed project is on ice for now, according to a report on Slash Film.

"Warner's talked to us and a few other writer/director teams, but things seem to be in stasis right now," Millar reportedly said on his Web site. "As far as I understand, nothing is happening with Superman at the moment, and so the director and I are just working on another project. If it happens, great. If it doesn't, no biggie. Kick-Ass taught me that creating your own stuff can be at least as much fun, and you don't have to answer to anyone. It's the future, baby."
