Back when Edgar Wright parted ways with Marvel, Adam McKay was in the running to replace him as the director of Ant-Man. Although the job ultimately went to Peyton Reed, McKay worked on the screenplay and there have been talks of the director possibly taking on a superhero movie of his very own. That time is now, as McKay has finally signed on to helm a comic book adaptation…just not for Marvel.

Kindly Couple: Why The Kents Are Vital To The Superman Mythos

Pa-and-Ma-Kent

Superman is often defined by his powers or his quite literal alienation, but the Man of Steel is so much more than that. Superman represents the potential of humanity through his kindness, his empathy and his generosity. All of these qualities he learned directly from two people, Jonathan and Martha Kent, and when you change anything about that dynamic, you wind up with a very different Superman.

In John Byrne’s classic reinvention, Man of Steel, there’s no mention made of ancient Kryptonian family crests; instead, Clark sits down with his dad and designs a logo based on the “Superman” name already coined for him by the Daily Planet, while Ma works on the costume. It isn’t all fun family crafts however, as it’s Pa Kent who takes Clark aside when he’s young and inspires him to be more than just a high school football star.
