2013 “Death And Return Of Superman Pitch” by Max Landis
Someone in Max Landis' circle at least kind of likes the Martian Manhunter. Bloodwynd understandably played a role in the fan film "The Death and Return of Superman", but J'Onn J'Onzz also got name checked among the many fallen heroes that traveled in the wake of Superman's having "broken" death in comics. A year later, Landis claims to have been approached by DC to do an actual comic version of the premise as part of the New 52, but since that fell through, he's now offering a forty-three minute verbal telling (NSFW language) of his ideas for the proposal. Batman and Wonder Woman are in there. Green Lantern. Flash. Blue Beetle comes up a bunch. Martian Manhunter? Not a word. However, his logo flashes on he screen for a split second. So effects editor Andy Holton might like J'Onn J'Onzz. Thanks for that. Here's his IMDb page. His godfather was Andy Griffith. Max is John Landis' son. It's who you know.
