It seems that Hollywood is getting more desperate by the minute to find new stupid reboot ideas to ruin our daily nerves. In case you didn’t know Hollywood plans to reboot the reboot of Superman, wants to reboot Spiderman and reboots Fantastic Four, RoboCop and so many other franchises and wannabe’s.

I think we can all agree that this situation is slowly but surely getting out of hand. The best example truly is Superman which didn’t even scratch the surface of a true trilogy before a new reboot.

You know what happened? After flushing down the old ending down the toilet I began my thinking process…

But you what is scaring me? The idea I have seems to be perfect. It fits the overall story, it fits the main character. It even fits the backstory I have written about. It seems to fit everywhere. But – more importantly – it seems to add the feelings and emotions I am constantly after. It would tell a touching story. And it would have an ending
