by at . Comments

Might the Wachowski Brothers (best known for creating The Matrix universe) reboot the Superman franchise?

A source at Ain't it Cool News told the website that Wachowski collaborator John McTeigue said the siblings had previously been intending to make a move based on DC's Plastic Man.

"[The Wachowskis] are currently reviewing their options... [McTeigue] says if they do agree, he will likely either succumb to providing second unit support on the movie or will champion the directorship of Plastic Man.

"The very thought of the brothers making a Superman movie is unbelievable as they have grown up in the world of comic books and they would be ideal for the project."
